Entering the carbon market: It’s taken two solid years of bashing
rims for WTB to produce their Ci24 carbon rim, but its development shows in the details. Our favorite feature is their 4D angled
hole-drilling to ensure the spokes aren’t exerting unnecessary
force upon the carbon rim.
Fresh new color: The Trabec helmet hasn’t received any design
upgrades, but feast your eyes on the new color. POC is calling it
“Beryl Green” and has heard many compliments regarding it being
a “gender-neutral” color.
Bold new graphics: Magura’s new MT7 brake came sporting a
new look with race-speed graphics and trail-proven performance.
Trail-certified doctor: Simple yet complete—that’s exactly what
we look for in a first-aid kit. We’ll save the big injuries for white
coats and sterile rooms, but EVOC’s new first-aid kits will ensure
the 15-mile ride to the hospital is a little more enjoyable.
Revamping the cassette: Hope has upped their game on the
wide-range gearing solution by offering a complete 10-40-tooth
10-speed cassette. The smallest seven rings are made from a single billet of hardened steel, while the largest three are aluminum to
lighten the load.
Looks are deceiving: At first glance, the wide and rounded profile of the WTB Bridger tire seems designed for the adventurous
rider with a bikepacking soul. Turns out, they’re designed for
aggressive riders who require maximum traction in rough conditions. They’ll be available in a TCS (Tubeless Compatible System)
