Corratec Inside Link 120 Z: Corratec is a brand that was
founded in Bavaria 27 years ago. Their Inside Link 120 Z sports
120 millimeters of travel—although it, too, takes a back seat to
all the other electric bikes that were on display in the booth. We
actually had to do some digging to find a bike in this booth that
didn’t have a motor.
Maybe the coolest bike at the show—or not? ❏
Aggy’s Signature bar: Graham Aggasiz rides for Kore. If you’ve
ever seen his antics at Red Bull Rampage, you know he needs
the most duarble parts possible. His new bar from Kore features
a flat-anodized finish and a custom extruded bar profile. It also
comes with cool graphics that feature an image of his home town
in British Columbia.
Jack Moir’s weapon: This prototype Intense 29er DH bike is one
of the fastest bikes on the planet, and it was on display at the
SRAM booth, complete with some very cool custom graphics.
Our Euro counterpart:
Mountain Bike Action has
an Italian version, and
Paolo (left) is the one who
puts it all together. On the
right, our friend and riding
mentor Bobby Root had a
chance to stop for a shot.
Gwin’s rubber: Rumor was that last year, despite being
sponsored by Onza, Gwin would not run their tires. That all
changed this year with the addition of the Aquila tire, one that
Gwin had a big hand in helping design. Expect to see these on
the top of many podiums for years to come.
BMC Trailsync: BMC has a very unique idea with their Trailsync
system. It works to synchronize the use of the dropper post with
the suspension with the use of only one lever. When the post is
in the high position, the suspension is firm. When it’s down, the
suspension is plush. It makes sense to us.
