Marin Attack Trail Pro
Marin didn't hold back with the spec on their 27.5" wheeled Attack Trail Pro, outfitting it with BOS suspension front and rear, Shimano XTR brakes and drivetrain, WTB carbon rims, and finishing it off with a carbon handlebar from Deity. All of those goodies do come at a price - $9349 USD to be precise. The Attack Trail's full carbon frame uses Marin's Quad 3 dual short link suspension design for its 150mm of travel.OutBraker Brake Pressure Regulator
Have you ever wished your hydraulic disc brakes were less powerful? Do you find yourself constantly flipping over the bars from grabbing too much front brake? I honestly can't say that I'd answer 'yes' to either of those questions, but for those that can, OutBraker may have the solution.
They've created a small pressure regulator that screws into most hydraulic disc brake levers currently on the market. Once the system is installed and bled, advancing or backing off the hex bolt on the outside of the unit allows the amount of power applied to the rotor to be adjusted. When the unit is fully open, squeezing the lever barely slows the front wheel down, making it nearly impossible to go over the bars. As a rider gets more comfortable using their front brake the force can be increased, all the way to the point to where they behave like 'normal' brakes. The Outbraker is said to require no maintenance, and comes with a lifetime warranty for $150 USD.
