There are also new colors on the way for the men's Prophet shoes.


Interbike 2016
Topeak's Bikamper tent ($259) isn't an entirely new addition to their line, but with the growing popularity of bikepacking the company decided to update it to work with 29" wheels. One side of the three season tent attaches to a bike's handlebar and fork, and the front wheel is used to hold up the other side. When it's not in use, the tent packs down to roughly 10" x 5".

Do you regularly ride in blizzards? Are you on a first name basis with the Abominable Snowman? Then Lake may have a pair of riding shoes for you.

GoPro's new drone was attracting plenty of curious onlookers.

Fix It Sticks' clever T-handle multitool is now available with a mounting bracket that holds it securely underneath a water bottle cage.


Interbike 2016
RSD Bikes' Wildcat has 123mm of rear travel paired with a 150mm fork to give it a 66.5-degree head angle, with plenty of clearance for 27.5 x 3.0" tires. The bike will retail for $3,200 USD as shown, a price that includes a RockShox Pike RC, a Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain, and a KS LEV Integra dropper post.


Interbike 2016
RSD's Sergeant 27.5+ hardtail is available in aluminum or titanium, and has a 66.5-degree head angle when run with a 140mm fork.


Interbike 2016
If you have to shuttle, you might as well get there in style.


Interbike 2016
The unique Rockingtor knee / shin guards are still in the prototype stage, but production is expected to begin very soon. The pads use a modular design that begins with attaching the top of the pad to a knee warmer style sleeve. Another strap wraps around the shin, and the final attachment is just above the ankle. A clear piece of polycarbonate shields the shin, and memory foam is used around the knee.


Interbike 2016
Bolle's B-Rock sunglasses were designed to provide an unobstructed field of view, and include features like a hydro- and oleophobic coating on the outside of the lens, plus an adjustable nosepiece and temples. Depending on the lens selected prices range from $180 - $200 USD.


Interbike 2016
Bolle's The One MTB helmet ($129) is nearly identical to their road helmet, save for the non-adjustable visor. It comes with two different liners, one for warm weather and one for cold, along with a removable blinking red LED rear light.

No mechanic likes to deflate or remove a tire just to true a wheel, which is why Park now make the TS-4 adjustable wheel truing stand. It'll fit tires up to 5" wide, and axle widths from 75mm to 215mm.


Interbike 2016
Blackburn are ready for hunting season with a limited edition line of camouflaged packs and bags.

Blackburn's new Chamber HV floor pump has a gauge even your grandpa could read. It also has a built in bottle opener at the top of the pump, and an aluminum handle that can be replaced with any 31.8mm handlebar.


Interbike 2016
Bern's FL1 trail helmet is now available with a MIPS liner for $129 USD.


Interbike 2016
Plus bikes aren't just for big kids - Norco's new Fluid 4.3+ hardtail rolls on 24 x 2.6" tires. Just think about how well those will skid down the driveway when mom or dad aren't looking...


Interbike 2016
Jill Kintner was all smiles about Slytech's line of protective gear. The knee pads use Slytech's proprietary 2nd Skin XT foam, which is designed to harden upon impact while also providing a high level of impact absorption.


Interbike 2016
Atomlab's Trail King pedal is on its way back, returning with a 105 x 105mm platform and a $99 sticker price.

 I grew up in the 80's and most company plus kids have been going that way for quite some time. Especially with all the colors. I guess nobody saw how stupid we looked back then and now the style is coming back around

 If you have little rippers, Flow bikes was there debuting their new 20" bikes: www.pinkbike.com/news/flow-convertible-kids-bike-outdoor-demo-2016.html

While not cheap, Flow's bike is on par with a Lil Shredder Icon and costs 50% less. I bought one for my son last month and they are seriously sick.

 My favorite part on Interbike is one of Gwin's WC bikes on Display at Onza rocking Maxxis with blacked out sidewalls. I also took a squeeze of his TRP's...whole new respect for the man!

 @Cam86:

The pump is already an obsolete standard, making it impossible to upgrade to a high end carbon bar 10 years from now.
[Reply]

 Loving that pump! There's no reason we should have to bend over to try to read a gauge. At 32, maybe I'm getting old, but I think it should be easily read from standing. Besides, I've been dying to find a floor pump that could show a more accurate low pressure reading! Sweet!

[Reply]

 Yes! It look sooo much better than before. Note to helmet designers: the top of the chinguard should ALWAYS protrude farther than the bottom!

 Digging the 2.6 rubber! Quick question for anyone: can you stretch a Pike 140mm 29er to 150mm? Would like to run 150 but not enough to purchase a new fork...? I like the look of the RST, seeing a growing trend of front forks longer that rear sus
[Reply]
  • + 5
 Yes, 160 as well. You just need a new air shaft: www.amazon.com/RockShox-Pike-Shaft-150mm-Travel/dp/B00G239ZU0

It's not very hard to replace.
[Reply]

 @unrooted: My Pike is one of the older ones, as it does not have to sag o meter on the stantions? the main body, crown and stantions are all the same? there isnt snything that needs to be done to neg. spring or limit stops, or whatever is holding it to the current 140mm lenght right now?

 @sjdeweese: that's the same as mine!

 If I were Sram owner I would release a new 220mm rear hub standard just to mess with Park Tool.

 Is the BERN FL1 a "trail helmet" because they put a visor on it? No mention of it on their website, just the FL1 with and without MIPS... (side note, sure disappointing when companies are showing their new stuff to the media but have nothing about it on their websites)

Hard to believe a helmet can be light and aero enough for road but also have enough coverage to be a modern mountainbike helmet???

 No 3.0 Minions on display, but they did have a 27.5 x 3.0 Highroller II, which looked burley. And if you saw the DHF in 2.8 it looks like something you would see on a motocross bike

Last year the winter was pretty mild. I was riding in 0-30F with a pair of wool socks and I was good. Snow was super wet and my feet stayed dry. If i did thicker boots i feel like my feet would sweat. If you're riding colder than that I'd do wolvhammers or 400s
[Reply]

 @deiru: I ride 5.10 Impact Low down to -24c with a pair of wool socks. At that temp they're good for about 45 mins. Throw in toe warmers an it's a bit longer. Not much. At -15c with wool socks I can ride all day.
