For the tall folks: Developed with aid from the Santa Cruz Syndicate downhill team, ENVE took riser bars to the next level with 46 millimeters of rise on their HDH handlebar. It’s available in an 810-millimeter width for $175.
Room for all: The FourPlay and Two Timer racks by Yakima
address an issue that many other companies have yet to tackle.
Up until this point, transporting fat bikes on a hitch-mount rack
was a pain at best and impossible at worst. These offer many of
the same features as higher-end racks at a much lower starting
cost of $299 for the Two Timer.
Fresh new ano: Race Face Turbine cranks have such a classic look that we hope they keep their nostalgic lines for years
to come. However, new colors are always a welcome addition.
Plenty of fresh, anodized colors for all your component-matching
Bike and moto approved: We’ve seen it as a prototype at one
show after the next, but the Kali Shiva is now available to the masses. Its DOT-approved design weighs in at 1050 grams and is just as
fitting atop a dirt bike as it is a downhill bike.
Prototype rubber: Kenda’s Nexcavator tire will soon be offered
in a 27.5x2.4-inch size, which will make it a likely choice for
enduro racing in loose conditions. Their cross-country tire, the
Saber, was also on display. It looks lightweight, fast, and we
can’t wait to try a pair out on the trail.
