Fizik LINK teaser suggests paired saddle/short combo

fizik-link-teaser

More is promised in two days, which coincides with the start of Eurobike, but the image grab above suggests Fizik may be launching a bibshort-and-saddle pair to “link” you to the bike. Makes sense, and something we’d be keen to try. Check the video after the break, and leave your guesses in the comments…

PowerTap adds P1s single-sided power meter pedal option, Advanced Metrics iOS app

powertap p1s single sided power meter pedals

Introduced as a pair in early 2015, the PowerTap P1 power meter pedals launched as part of an increased power measuring lineup from the brand. Now, they’re offering a more affordable way to see what you’re cranking out with the P1s, a single-leg option that pairs one strain gauge equipped left pedal with a non-gauged right. That brings the price of entry to $699. All the tech is the same, you’re just getting half of it.

To get more out of that pedal (or pedals, big spender), they’ve also launched a new, free iOS app called Advanced Metrics that shows how efficient you are with each leg, and from left to right…

Cane Creek takes over sales, manufacturing for eeBrakes

canecreek-eebrakes-rim-brake-caliper-partnership

Craig Edwards’ eeBrakes are among the best rim brake calipers out there, but they’ve always been produced in limited quantities. Cane Creek has taken over sales, marketing and manufacturing of the product, and the two parties have agreed to collaborate on future product development.

“In a previous life I had the good fortune to be project lead for a couple of uber bikes developed in conjunction with an F1 constructor”, says Cane Creek President, Brent Graves. “As the bikes were to sell for more than USD $20,000, we wanted something beyond the available top tier groups. After a lot of surprises and disappointments with the exotic parts on the market, we were blown away by Craig’s brake design and thoroughness. While it had the price and weight of the other exotics, it did not compromise on performance, reliability, or adjustment. From there Craig and I vowed to find a way to work together in the future.”

Edwards will remain involved with the product and the brand and work with Cane Creek to develop more products. For now, the updated original eeBrake calipers and the more recently introduced direct mount versions, will start funneling through Cane Creek as of November 2016. Retail is $315 each, front and rear sold separately.

Niner RIP 9 tears into new aluminum model for more affordable 29/27+ option

RIP 9_160810_4983-Edit

Eyeing the new RIP 9 RDO but having trouble stomaching the price? Not to worry, Niner has you covered. Like most brands, Niner’s top of the line bikes are created from the wonderful material known as carbon fiber. Carbon has the potential to make really light and strong frames, but it also has a tendency to jack up the price.

Now the newest RIP 9 is getting a lower priced makeover in the form of we-made-the-same-thing-in-aluminum. That means you get most of the RIP 9 RDO performance including the dual wheel size capability, without the price…

K-Edge machines new Sport level Garmin & Wahoo mounts, Splayd mounts for integrated bar/stem

K-Edge sport

K-Edge has always been fiercely proud of their precision machined aluminum mounts for computers and lights. Their position has always been that their mounts are a pro level product and while plastic mounts can get the job done, they feel your $$$ Garmin or Wahoo deserves the highest level of security.

Unfortunately, that has correlated with a higher price than their competitors thanks to the amount of machining time for their flagship mounts. Now, they have another option. The new Sport series won’t be replacing their current line, now called their Pro series, but it will offer a more affordable option for those shopping on price, but who still want the strength and hold of an aluminum mount…

Ion steps into clipless & flat pedal shoes with new Rascal & Raid Amp

ION_Rascal_clipless-all-mountain-bike-shoes_blue_on-bike

For their fifth year making bike gear, Ion has decided to branch out a bit with a new product type. Focusing pretty heavily on the sole and working back up, they have paired up with Swiss shoemaker Suplest to introduce their own mountain bike shoes geared more towards the more trail riders and gravity-focused flat pedal crew. The new Rascal keeps a sneaker look but builds in clipless pedal compatibility and a flexible velcro strap to cinch them down tight, while the Raid Amp delivers a sticky-soled, skate-style lace up ready to tackle the toughest trails…
