|This guy is all Torq. Ben Price is a full-time employee for the Shrewsbury-based company and also races XC and Enduro for their teams.

Many of the products are vegan friendly and they are sending us some of their cruelty-free products to check out.
|Their VX8 downhill bike was brand new for the show. The previous AP1 downhill bike was only available in one size, but the VX8 now comes in a Short and Long version. There's 202mm of travel from the 'idler enabled' high single pivot, which offers a linear to rising-rate for 'exceptional feel and response'. The seat tower and swingarm are shared from with the MX6-EVO. The frame without shock weights 4.6kgs and the dropouts are 135mm or 142mm only. Empire say the frame offers unbeatable stiffness and a ride unlike anything else on the market
|Schwalbe had these new tyre levers with a difference. There is a traditional lever on one side and a clip on the other. Clip the lever on to the rim bead and it will hold the tyre in place, preventing it from popping out when your manhandling the bead somewhere else. Schwalbe say this is especially useful for installing the Procore system when trying to keep everything on one place.
