An incredibly light road bike, ultralight XC wheels, and 200g road shoes lead us out, plus a killer Scott concept bike, new SRAM Transmission goodies, lots of eMTBs, kids’ trail bikes, tons of aero wheels, and more!
Now that Eurobike’s madness has died down, this week is comparatively light on launches, though there’s some Tour de France parts and neat apps & tech in the mix. I also found some really cool stories and tidbits to share in the Small Bites section at the bottom, I hope you’ll check them out.
We have the rest of the best from Eurobike, hi-tech new suspension & tuning, new MTBs from Ibis, Privateer & BH, impressive titanium work, a fancy truing stand, Chris King’s new old stock, new bikepacking gear from Nemo and Camelbak, and other interesting bits…like a “Digital Human” AI assistant for this year’s Tour de France!
Everyone launches stuff at Eurobike, so we have new bikes & gear (and prototypes!) from Felt, Merida, 3T, Litespeed, Look, Commençal, Exept, and Norco, plus a lot of new wheels and tires, and some other cool stuff!
SRAM finally gets a 12-speed mechanical group for drop bar bikes, plus an eMTB for kids, two more for adults, freeride MTBs, Classified’s internally geared hub gets new specs, new tires, and lots more!
Öhlins bounces some very unique XC suspension tech, Wilde adds a segmented steel fork, plus aero lights and handlebars and road shoes, carbon brake rotors, freeride-proof MTB wheels square off against pinch flats, a stronger compact cargo e-bike, a reusable helmet, and more cool tech bits. And our new Kit of the Week feature!
This week, we have Breadwinner’s first stock bike, Ritte’s long-teased new Esprit road bike, a sneak peek at new premium road wheels from Astral & Rolf Prima, Silca’s wax lube cleaner, Campy goes wireless, Cane Creek and FSA add comfort to gravel bikes, plus new wheels, lights, GPS watches, and more!
The all-new Campagnolo Super Record Wireless puts the rider experience at the forefront, with smoother gear steps and high-tech performance…and it’s expensive as hell!
This week we have two new lightweight premium alloy bikes, an Italian road race bike with the best specs ever, lots of new tech and tires, a top-level helmet with carbon plates, shiny gold carbon wheels, the stiffest road cranks, and a gorgeously unique CNC’d derailleur cage.
