SRAM had this YT Capra on display equipped with their new Roam 60 carbon wheels.
DaBomb's booth was a riot of lights and colors, but it was the rear cassette on their Dynamite 275 that stood out. A 48 tooth aluminum cog had been installed, an aftermarket add-on from Relic Components. In the stand the Shimano derailleur didn't seem to have any trouble moving the chain into the easiest gear, but it would take an actual test ride to really assess the shifting. When the ring is available it should retail for around $85 USD.
This aluminum Intense was fully decked out in components from Box Components.
Taiwan is still a hotbed for aluminum manufacturing, and companies both large and small have booths at the show to demonstrate their capabilities, like this 150mm frame from Alu-Mate.
Genio's GF7-1 downhill frame has 204mm of rear travel, a 63.5 degree head angle, and either a 440 or 450mm chainstay length depending on the wheel position.
Hmm, that font looks vaguely familiar...
Rather than using a pivot on the seat- or chainstays, this XC bike from Trigon relies on the flex from the flattened chainstays in order to allow the rear wheel to go through its travel unimpeded.
Astro's latest full carbon frame uses a dual-link suspension layout for its 140mm of travel.
Dartmoor's 170mm Wish Enduro. (My inner mechanic cringes whenever I see a brake line routed on the outside of a fork leg.)
Itek's substantial looking 27.5+ bike.
This Kellys Noid 90 was hard to miss with its extra bright paint job.
One of this year's color choices for the Santa Cruz Nomad: emerald green and yellow.
Ghost's FR AMR 7.
Loic Bruni may have since switched teams, but there's no denying that he rode Lapierre's DH Team to a victory at World Champs.
The polar opposite of the DH Team, the XR 929 is a cross-country race weapon.
Polygon's Collosus DH9.
This belt driven, gearbox equipped Nicolai stopped more than one passer-by in their tracks.
Another XC rocket, KTM's Scarp.
X Fusion had their elusive Revel inverted fork installed on a Commencal Meta AM.
Fairly Bikes isn't a household name in the bike world due to the fact that they mainly build bikes for other companies, but this Di2 equipped bike was more than photo-worthy.
Felt's 140mm Decree.
Another year, another history lesson in the MacMahone booth. When's the last time you saw a RockShox Totem out on the trail?
Pivot's Phoenix Carbon DH.
Corsair had a prototype of their latest project, the Ambush, on display. Intended to be a playful all-mountain bike, the Ambush will have 150mm of travel, 430mm chainstays, and a 66-degree head angle with a 150mm fork (a 160mm fork will slacken it out by approximately half a degree).
