In the past few years we've had self-navigating bikes, virtual reality helmets andupside down websites but what have the marketing minds of mtb been able to pull together for 2019? Take a look at some of the funniest below.
The Rise's Extendo Bar
The Rise is proud to finally present its patented Extendo Handlebars. Giving you the ability to easily adapt to your environment, the Extendo handlebars makes it an effortless task to quickly transform your cockpit to your desired width in order to efficiently manoeuvre across any type of situation.
The patented Lateral sliding hydraulic system (LSHS) enables you to lock your handlebars in 3 different widths with a simple press of the thumb. Working in close collaboration with many World Class athletes to develop this technology, the Extendo gives you the ability to adapt to each section of a track depending on the amount of obstacles and varying speeds without compromising the handling of the bike nor its geometry.

A nostalgic piece of everyone's childhood that also improves performance, Wiggle could be on to something here.
Aerodynamic, made from carbon fibre and exclusively available at Wiggle, the adult friendly Spokey Dokeyswill actually enhance performance by making wheel spokes more streamlined. The growing range will also allow cyclists to express themselves in any way they choose, through the wheels on their bike.
With performance in mind, Wiggle worked with a number of internal cycling experts, industry specialists and external engineers to run the updated accessories through a rigorous research and development process, which included hour upon hour of wind tunnel testing at MIRA.
Wiggle trialled the Spokey Dokeys with several of its key customers and the results were astonishing, with 83 per cent of trialists recording an increase in their average speed.
Dani Rowe commented: “Cyclists across the UK now have another way to express their personality to other cyclists even while they’re desperately sucking in as much oxygen as possible on the most gruelling of climbs. What’s more, since using the ‘Carbon Pro’ Spokey Dokey I’ve gone faster for longer, it really is a must have.”
