Developed from the ground up for disc brakes, the new carbon Aracnide is a hi-tech handmade Italian bike blending sleek performance, comfort, and custom detailing. We previously saw new titanium, steel & aluminum options from the custom builders at T°Red back at NAHBS, and even their solution for the terror of disc brakes on the road this spring. But now they are back with an all new custom carbon road bike, their first to be developed exclusively for disc brakes. Get a closer look after the jump…

EB16: FSA PowerBox launches power meter cranks developed with Power2Max

fsa_powerbox-carbon_hollow-carbon-single-side-power-meter-crankset-with-power2max_outside

After having made individual arms for Power2Max to mate to their own power metering spiders for a few years, FSA collaborated with the power meter maker to develop their own branded versions. FSA has been working hard in the last year or two to fill out their drivetrain line, tied-in with their road pro team sponsorship. So their new PowerBox Carbon power meter cranksets join the recently introduced K-Force WE and WE Disc groups to complete their top road spec offering. At the same time, an alloy version hopes to open up to the door to more OEM power meter specs, with a lower cost of entry. They’ve also taken the same tech and ported it over to a premium carbon trail riding crank, to give power metering capabilities in either a 1x or double form for mountain bikes looking to take their training up a notch. Check out the details and preliminary pricing after the break…

EB16: KTM Lisse aero road project, plus M13 team bikes & hints of racing road disc Revelator

ktm-lisse_aero-carbon-road-bike-concept_prototype-front-end

KTM bikes had tended to focus quite heavily on off-road and we saw their new superlight XC bikes when they were unveiled earlier in the summer. But the Austrian manufacturer has been growing out of their mountain and city bike mold for a while now, and has already developed a good looking carbon road race bike and its disc brake endurance cousin. But it looks like KTM is putting a lot of effort onto the road with this new sleek-looking Lisse aero road bike project. Being a title sponsor for a French Pro Continental team, they’ve also released some team replica editions of their Revelator. And with the UCI set to reintroduce disc trial they’ve hinted that a disc brake version of the bike keeping the race geometry may be on the way…

Donate to CAN’d Aid, Win a REEB mountain bike or fat bike

Can'd aid fundraiser reeb bikes

Other than making great beer, Oskar Blues brewery also makes a lot of good through their nonprofit CAN’d Aid Foundation. Whether it’s donating canned drinking water to towns in crisis (recently they donated 250,000 cans to Flint, MI), getting kids on bikes, building trails, or a number of other initiatives, Oskar Blues loves to be “Doin’ good and making a Fuh’ Can difference.”

If you haven’t already donated to the cause, Oskar Blues’ bike spin off REEB Cycles is sweetening the pot. For each donation starting at $10, you’ll be entered to win a sweet, made in Colorado, REEB Cycle. The only catch is that for the bike to be given away donations need to exceed $3400. If that happens then one lucky winner will be able to chose between a REEBdikeleous mountain bike or REEBdonkadonk fat bike…

Heller Bloodhound finds new Trail fat bike configuration

bh17_detail_1

Heller is relatively new to the fat bike world, but they’re already gaining a lot of traction. A lot of that has to do with the fact that they are associated with QBP, but it also probably has something to do with the price of their bikes. Thanks to the open mold nature of their frames, Heller provides high end carbon bikes to dealers that they can sell at impressive prices. And now that the ball is rolling, there is a new more aggressive spec for their Bloodhound fat bike that will help you take to the trail…

The on-the-fly adjustable suspension engineers at Bionicon have another update to their flagship all-mountain bike this fall, with the revamped bike getting simply rebranded as the rEVO. While it shares a similar name to the special edition bike that they produced last summer, the new rEVO takes its geometry updates a step beyond and will replace the Edison EVO entirely. At the same time, Bionicon has jumped a bit deeper into the e-bike market, with their new 3ngine e-MTB built around a Shimano E8000 motor and some interchangeable dropouts for multiple wheel size compatibility…
