This complete 951 Evo from Intense was fully decked out with the latest DVO suspension, SRAM XO1DH, Shimano Zee brakes and a Spank finishing kit. The Evo version benefits from 27.5" wheels, integrated fork bump stops and a 1/4" longer top tube than the older version and the M9. With rumours of a Top 5 World Cup DH rider joining a newly formed Intense Factory DH team, could this be the new team race machine?
There are many jaded faces lurking in the casinos, but our faces were turning green when we saw this DVO Jade shock, which is custom tuned for the 951 Evo. Colour co-ordination was on another level, including Spank's beautifully crafted new 25/30mm direct mount stem that was bolted to the Emerald fork. This 951 Evo is available now from your local Intense dealer at $7900 for the full bike, or as a frame/fork combo at $4800.
Maybe these guys pitched up at the wrong Expo?
Sony were trying to keep things on the straight and narrow with this lovely pair. We've already mentioned the new smaller ActionCam being launched later this week, but they also have a new wrist mounted screen that can be used to see where you're pointing your camera and also to play back your videos.
In Sin City you can have anything you want. One of the guys from Felt decided he wanted it all. An electric fat bike, with a trailer, camouflage, a carbon fiber compound bow, and a fishing rod.
Rotor is a company that wants more too, and they're offering not only a narrow/wide chainring, but it's ovalised too. This QX1 ring is available in 28/30/32/34/36t sizes, and has a 12.5% 'Ovality'. Rotor also offer rings with 10% Ovality and 0% for people who like things nice and round. They also offer 2 and 3 ring setups and loads of other sizes and spiders to fit nearly all crank types. Oval rings never really took off back in the day, but with the simplicity of setup on 1x systems gaining popularity these could become your next upgrade?
Cratoni has a new enduro helmet on the way called the All-Track. Its main feature being a dual position visor that can be raised to create room for stashing goggles, and the little yellow hook on the rear of the helmet keeps the goggle strap from popping upwards off the helmet. It weighs in at 320g, and comes in 2 sizes (S/M and M/L), with 17 air vents to keep you cool. It also features a removable camera or light mount. The internal padding uses memory foam to add comfort and the retention system has three height adjustments to fit. Available in Europe around December for €149 They are hoping to have them Stateside in Spring 2015.
Judging by this guy's parking he either has a visual impairment or was desperate to get back to the slots.
Orange car, to orange pack. Osprey's 2015 Zealot pack has been evolved to meet the needs of the enduro mountain bike racer. Plenty of features including the Airscape back panel and an improved hip belt to keep it securely on your back. There's space for your helmet and protection, plus water and tools. The Zealot is available in 2 sizes, S/M and M/L and Atomic Orange or Charcoal colourways.
A 3 litre Hydraulics Reservoir is included with the Zealot, which has a stiff back plate on the reservoir that can help to protect your spine and also keep its shape so all your water doesn't rush to the bottom of your pack, plus the handle to the front makes it nice and easy for you to hold on to when filling. The removable roll-out tool pouch lives in its own pocket at the bottom of the Zealot for quick access. The bite valve features a magnet to attach to the chest strap so it's always easy to locate. All this for $140.
Our main reason for heading back to the outdoor demo today was to answer an age old question, can you do cutties on a fat bike? Yep, and much more easily than I thought.
We'll carry on bringing you news from Vegas all this week - once we're done resting our tired feet.
