Inspired by Danny Macaskill, the MacAskill sports a TPU toecap, TPR external heel cup, leather upper and stiff sole. Dense foam cushioning has been added under the ankle cuff.
The Freerider Pro is basically the Danny Mac in another color way. This shoe is a higher end version of the freerider with a gel reenforced heel and gel under the contact point of the pedal as well as a protective toe cap and molded external heel cup.
5.10 have created a light & stiff all mountain SPD compatible shoe with a carbon injected shank. The Kestral Strap features a heel cage stabilizer and light, protective upper that was designed to be breathable and transfer maximum power to the pedal.
5.10 have designed an unbeatable SPD shoe, designed to appeal to even the most budget conscious rider. A unique nylon shank helps increase tortional support and control with tremendous weight savings. High end ankle protection, asymmetrical lace protection, fully stiched one piece padded Raptor tongue. Inside ankle patch for protection from crank.
Clipless pedals are the way to go for more power, more control, and the perfect spin. As the leader in the flat pedal bike shoe movement, 5.10 have been thinking out of the box. High end ankle protection, asymmetrical lace protection, fully stiched one piece padded Raptor tongue. Inside ankle patch for protection from crank.
FSA had a Skittles bag worth of plastic headset spacers for your trail bike. Neon is all the rage once again.
Moots makes gorgeous bikes and the MootoXYBB was talking to me and telling me that it would make XC trail ripping more fun. Oh wait bikes can't talk, can they?
While the Turner DHR isn't new news, it still turns heads. The Anodized Green was looking good on the stand and will be winning races near you next season.
Ego Kits first dropped onto our radar last year and this is the first one we've seen on person. Tired of pushing your bike up for some big descents? What if you could simply coast up? Check out the Ego Kit video below.
Mad Max made an appearance. Where can I get one of these? Perfect for the tight jean, fixie coffe shop run!
Jelly Belly's Sport Beans taste great and feel more like a treat while you are out there suffering on a long ride, than other less flavour filled supplements.
Uses regular cables and housing to make parts replacements easier than some other options out there.
This bike was also described as electric, but I am betting that the Ego Kit is night and day more performance based than this ARC.
Just in case you work at a shop and are too lazy to lift bikes into the workstand, these guys had a fully hydraulic, foot activated work stand for you. Um, yeah.
The Knog Booth stood out - I have no idea why? Knog makes some of the most creative locks, lights and accessories I have seen in a while, check them out at your local bike shop.
The ID2 Goggle from Adidas is ready to keep your eyes safe and ventilated either out on your bike or in the winter while skiing.
Lezyne had more multi tools on display than the rest of the show combined, including some slick carbon fiber bodied ones. Their new line of shop tools looks gorgeous, but is priced accordingly.
Surly makes bikes like the Moonlander and the Pugsley (shown here) and if you thought that 29ers could mow over anything, check out these rollers!
We first tested the Acros A Flats last year and our test pedals are still a fixture on Tyler's AM bike. This Leopard print is an anodized screening, so it is said to last forever unlike a typical screen only graphic.
Ben Smith from TLD has a new side business making Hiploks. A very cool, yet simple concept. Massive chain with anti pry lock in a fabric sleeve. The genius is that the lock also acts as a beltbuckle with the aid of a velcro strap and can be worn around the hips. It's actually quite comfortable and I've been using one to go to the store for quite awhile. Also used by the Monster Energy Specialized team for all their anti-theft needs.
Leatt's Adventure chest protector answers riders' question "What chest protector works best with the Leatt brace?"
They have designed this chest protector that integrates perfectly with the brace. Exclusive BraceOn elastic strap system attaches the protector to the Leatt-Brace yet provides independent movement of body, brace and chest protector. A critical need for championship level riding.
Tyler Maine's new off-season ride (with basket to fit Fraser). Please tell me why we have electric rickshaw's on display at a bicycle and fitness show? Product creep!
Is this what happens to Rob Warner in the off season? This man is the spitting image of Warner, if Rob was 10 years older and 50 pounds heavier. Also, why is this guy so grumpy? At least he got to RIDE a bike last week.
Colors are in for 2011. ODI was showing off a massive selection of grip color choices in every model. An easy way to add a bit of color to your ride.
Atomlab American Series Pedals with their 12 pins per side are looking to scare shins all over the world.
Very cool adjustable kids bikes. All plastic, and they can be yours for a minimum purchase of 10 000 units in Taiwan alley.
After all, this is what the show is all about right? Well sort of. This booth was displaying a couple of LED disco balls. Absolutely nothing bike or fitness related in sight. I guess a manufacturing rep is a manufacturing rep, right?
Azonic's glove line up has some of the more bold graphics you'll find on any cycling gloves - feels very snow influenced.
This girl must be hating her life. She spent all day down on the "secondary" show floor in the basement, doing hot laps on an electric unicycle. Doesn't she looked thrilled? Must be the next big thing.
The McLaren and Specialized speed bike - this bike is too fast for the average rider to comprehend. Plus who doesn't love a bike that is murdered out?!
This guy cruised the show on the final day with a killer mullet and fresh pizzas; selling them for $6 a pop. Genius. Simon Gauthier from Devinci cycles took the bait, and we had the cheapest lunch of the entire show.
That is it for another year of Interbike and all the bike porn that comes with it. These fountains signify the sensation of leaving Vegas, but knowing you'll be back in a year for more. See you all at interbike next year, hope you enjoyed the coverage.
