Eurobike Awards 2014: Road, Tri, Mountain, City, and of course, E-Bikes

eurobike awards bike (10)

If there was one bike in the awards area at the show that epitomizes the idea of a design award, it would probably be the Rafael r-023 Ueberbike. From the driveside it may be easy to overlook if you’re not into tri bikes, but as soon as you take a glance at the non-drive side of the bike it stops you in your tracks…

2014 Eurobike Awards: Clever Clothing, Accessories, and Gear

Eurobike awards (10)

Eurobike has come and gone leaving with a flood of new products and more content than we ever could hope to publish. Much like the Taipei Show, each year Eurobike puts on a design competition and this year awarded 56 manufacturers with either a Eurobike, Gold, or Green award. Judged by a panel of 6 experts from different corners of the cycling industry, the awards are always a good source of at least a few new and interesting products like the Drink Clean system above.

Perfect for those that hate mud and dirt on their water bottle valves, the rotating nozzle hides away to keep the part you drink out of clean. Made in Germany out of eco-friendly, food grade plastic, the bottle seems like it could be a hit when it becomes available.

There is plenty more where that came from next…

Stan’s Enters the Carbon Wheel Game, shows Valor at Eurobike

SNT_ZTRValor_edtd

Stan’s view on the production of carbon wheels seems to ring true with discretion is the better part of valor. Before showing off their first ever carbon, tubeless wheel, Stan’s CTO and Co-owner STan Koziatek said, “The truth is we could have made a carbon fiber rim years ago, but it wouldn’t have been a genuine NoTubes rim.  High Spots of extra resin, ragged seams and overlaps, and shape and width deviations have somehow become acceptable on wheelsets costing several thousand dollars, but we require much higher tolerance. It took us years to find a technology and manufacturer able to consistently produce this rim”

Apparently, the time is now for a carbon wheel that is up to Stan’s standards with the introduction of the all new ZTR Valor Carbon. The wheel claims a more precise and consistent manufacturing process that results in the highest quality rim that is to their specifications.

FSA To Launch Hydraulic Disc Brakes at Eurobike

FSA Hydraulic Brake K Force

After surprising the bicycle world with the announcement of their forthcoming hydraulic disc brakes at Sea Otter, FSA is set to officially launch their new stoppers soon at Eurobike. The brakes will be initially offered in the super light XC K-Force and Trail oriented Afterburner models. Both brakes feature tool free stroke and reach adjustability with a flip flop lever with an integrated asymmetrical reservoir to keep them compact and easy to service.

An interesting feature is the mention of front and rear specific hoses that is supposed to result in a more balanced brake feel – something we’ll be sure to get more info on during the launch. Built with magnesium castings, carbon composite levers, and ti hardware on the K – Force, individual wheel weights should be around 300g, with pricing set at $369 for K-Force and $289 for Afterburner. Availability is set for early 2014.
