New Zealand based company Cycle Muck had their pH-neutral bike wash on display. They claim there's no need to use a brush and unlike alkaline-based cleaners which strip grease and crack seals, their environmentally friendly wash keeps your bike running smooth.Box Components
Box Components had their new 11,8 and 7-speed drivetrains on show.POC
We saw plenty of locals wearing POC's new Axion SPIN helmet. Described as a more affordable, lightweight, all-mountain helmet, but still with POC's Spin protection and stylish looks.
A New Zealand student had his start-up company on show which made a 3D printed a 4 piston brake caliper. The open design increases airflow and saves weight, a caliper with pads weighs just 60g.
