2015 Carbon Specialized 650B DemoOver the past year many photos of a prototype Specialized downhill bike have been leaked on news sites and forums. The company line about these images has been “we’re always testing new platforms,” but this image of a new production bike was leaked by dealers earlier tonight and clearly indicates that something all new is on the horizon.

From our sources, we’re told that Troy Brosnan and Aaron Gwin (who are sitting in 1st and 2nd place respectively in the Overall WC standings) will be riding these bikes at the Mont Saint Anne World Cup Race this coming weekend, and to expect an official launch later this year at Crankworx.

2015-Look-795-Aerolight-aero-road-bike

Look’s past efforts at integration have yielded some sleek looking road bikes while eliciting polarizing opinions. If you’ve lauded the design, you’re in luck. If you fall into the “don’t like it” camp, look away now ’cause boy oh boy does the new Look 795 Aerolight road bike push things farther than ever.

Combining the lightweight design and integrated e-Post and front brake of the 695 Aerolight with the sleeker 675′s front end, plus new NACA tube profiles and a healthy dose of weight savings, the new 795 Aerolight raises the model nomenclature by 100 to introduce “the best aero road bike ever made.”

It even gets their 320g ZED 2 one-piece crankset, whose weight includes the bottom bracket, plus a new fork and updated version of the e-Post. Video and much more below…

Salsa colossal ti steel disc road thru axle fargo suspension (7)

The Colossal is Salsa’s road bike for epic days in the saddle in any and all conditions. That meant that as the bikes were carried over for the 2014 model year, the lack of fender mounts was a glaring omission for many considering the bike. To prove that Salsa is listening, the Colossal is back for 2015, but with a new design that includes not only fender mounts but thru axles as well.

Colossal now runs bigger tires than ever, and should check most of the boxes for a fast road bike built for the long haul. More details, actual weights, and the new Fargo Suspension bike after the break…
