EB15: Casco shows new Full Air vented, Roadster urban & more lids; plus Just In Speedairo-TC Plus


Casco had a number of their European-made helmets on display at Eurobike. The first that caught our eye was a rapid prototype of a new extremely ventilated helmet that was so open that you could see directly through it. The upcoming Full Air RCC helmet aims to out vent every other helmet Casco makes for both Road and Cross Country (RCC) riding.

In addition to going super vented, Casco also takes some DNA from their successful SpeedAiro helmets and adds it to the Roadster-TC for an aero, urban helmet. Somewhere in between the Sportive-TC Plus gets vents but a removable cover for an everyday riding versatility. There are plenty more choices available in Casco’s catalog, check out what jumped out at us after the break; plus the new special edition SpeedAiro-TC Plus, just in for review…  READ MORE ->

EB15: 2016 Cannondale road bike addendums & Black Inc bikes, plus Spiderings trickle down


We saw the highlights of Cannondale’s 2016 road bike lineup this summer, where they introduced the all-new CAAD12 alloy frames, the premium lightweight SuperSix EVO and updated spec for the Synapse. We weighed all of them, too. And then we featured the Slate gravel road bike in its own detailed post. So, Eurobike was mainly about filling in the gaps with the small details. And seeing the Black Inc. collection

Above, the Synapse Hi-Mod Disc Black Inc. endurance road bike gets Cannondale’s own Hollowgram SL carbon disc brake wheels with 700×28 Schwalbe One tubeless ready tires, Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 with hydraulic brakes, the SiSL2 cranks with one-piece Spidering, FSA SL-K carbon seatpost and Cannondale carbon bar and alloy stem with ti bolts. All yours for the low, low price of $9,590.

The rest of the Synapse line gains more disc models, with 6 of 11 getting rotors instead of rim brakes. Pricing heads south from the Black Inc. model, all the way down to $1,840 for a carbon frame with Tiagra. Alloy disc brake bikes come in at $1,570 with 105 and $1,250 with Tiagra.


EB15: 3T Rolls into Disc-brake Road with Discus Carbon and Aluminum Wheels


While a few companies are dipping into the growing road disc-brake market, 3T are rolling out a broad five wheel Discus line-up that goes from their top lightweight carbon LTD down to a more affordable Pro alloy rim. The wheels on offer are all relatively wide profile, aero optimized clinchers that are geared towards gravel and adventure riders with modern fat, lightweight tires.

Check out the details, pricing, availability, and actual rim widths of the Discus line-up after the break…


EB15: Cube Redesigns in Stereo with new Enduro and Trail bike updates


The 27.5″ Stereo 160 has been on the market for a few years, and after reworking a couple of shorter travel bikes last year Cube wanted to overhaul their flagship Enduro bike. With their new upgrade to their top C:68 carbon the new team bike has been putting Cube’s Action Team riders on the Enduro World Series podiums all season. With the Stereo 160 C:68 Action Team coming to market for 2016, it will be possible to ride the same bike as the Enduro pros, right down to the suspension and component spec.


EB15: Suplest Tightens Up Their Road and Mountain Edge3 shoe lines


While it had been a bit tricky to keep up with the different technologies and the naming conventions in Suplest’s current road and trail shoes, it looks like that is getting straightened out for 2016. With the introduction of the new Edge3 series that we showed in the middle of the summer, Suplest has both overhauled and simplified the line-up. Now going forward with just three levels – Pro, Performance, and Sport – in three segments – Road, XC, and Offroad – the breakdown into 9 total styles is a lot more straightforward. Hop past the break to have a look at how the shoes work out…


EB15: Ghost Nivolet Tour rolls out expanded Disc & Rim Brake Road Range


We took a look at new mountain bikes from Ghost a couple of weeks back just after we got back from Eurobike, but the German brand also had a sample of some interesting road bikes as well. Their current 2015 road line is fairly limited with the Nivolet being a single line with both carbon and aluminum frame versions. But with the addition of a carbon disc brake bike next year by way of this Nivolet LC Tour Disc 3, the Ghost lineup rethinks everything else in the line-up too, from a new lighter top-end model down to a revised aluminum entry bike. Jump past the break for a close-up of this pre-production bike, and an overview of the completely reworked Nivolet offerings…


EB15: DMR Celebrates 20 Years with DeathGrip and New Plus Size Compatible Trailstar

dmr 20th anniversary trailstar brendan fairclaough pedal (15)

For a company that started with a simple chain tug hand packaged in a plastic bag with a paper tag, DMR Bikes have come along way since those early days. Specifically, it has been 20 years of pedals, frames, and other components all designed to take a serious beating and withstand the wet riding in the UK.

To celebrate, DMR was on hand with the latest incarnation of the legendary Trailstar, plus a new signature grip for Brendan Fairclough along with some of their very first parts…


EB15: Bike Ahead’s 1kg AC One XC Wheelset, plus more for Road and Trail


Bike Ahead showed us what they think may be the lightest production mountain bike wheelset ever made. The cross country AC One wheels are based on the company’s standard 6-spoke carbon wheel design, and using the strongest fibers currently available they were able to shave the weight down for this race-bred wheelset, while keeping strength and stiffness. Sure it is limited to a 85kg rider (187lb; including all their gear), but they have plenty of other options for more aggressive trail riding, heavier riders, and even road discs. We actually spotted their new road wheels in the Haibike booth on their new Affair road disc bike. Check them all out below the fold…  READ MORE ->
