From the looks of things, DT Swiss has been hard at work in order to unveil a ton of new product at the upcoming Eurobike show. It’s hard to believe, but now both Eurobike and Interbike are only 3 months away!

The RRC line up promises to have a high performance carbon braking surface, innovative hub and spoke design, along with outstanding aerodynamics. We will just have to wait and see.

While details are slim on the RRCs, we have plenty of detail on some new goods in both the wheel and suspension department for 2012, including more love for 29rs with both wheels and forks. Plus, if you have been dying to get a hold of

2010 Focus Raven Takes GOLD Award At Eurobike

2010-focus-raven-gold-award

The 2010 Focus Raven was awarded the prestigious GOLD Award at the 2009 Eurobike. Of the 400 entries submitted by the international bicycle industry, 77 entries were honored – with only eight of them receiving a GOLD Award for outstanding achievements in design and innovation.

Jury’s assessment: “The biological styling of the purely presented frame concept in combination with a bold roughness and the advantages of using a material like carbon steel makes the Focus extremely attractive. The move back from 27 to 20 gears is inspired; it reduces the technology to the most essential and leaves more room for unbridled cycling fun.”

Check out some SPECS Here, and stay tuned for more info from Interbike Sept. 21- 25, 2009.

POC Downhill Helmet Prevents Brain Spin, Wins Eurobike Award

poc-cortex_dh_helmet
PRESS RELEASE: POC has received the Eurobike Award for the Cortex DH anti-rotational violence downhill helmet. A lightweight advanced carbon shell wrapped over our patent pending aramid reinforced in-mold liner. The liner has a thin shell of polycarbonate covering the multi-impact Super EPP core. The double overlapping shell design, our patented VDSAP, allows a fully ventilated construction for maximum comfort without sacrificing penetration resistance or impact energy management. The helmet is also equipped with the patented MIPS system to reduce the rotational forces on the brain in the case of an oblique impact. In the Cortex DH helmet, nothing has been neglected to attain the highest possible level of protection.

”The issue of rotational violence to one’s brain when crashing is major. The load transmitted to the brain due to the rotational violence is severe and is especially crucial to prevent at high speeds on gnarly terrain, like in downill mountain biking and when jumping big. Thanks to a collaboration with MIPS, a Swedish entity that’s researched these aspects for more than 10 years, POC is proud to launch the world’s first bike helmet using the MIPS technology.” Says Stefan Ytterborn CEO and founder of POC.

Quintana Roo CD 0.1 Triathlon Bike Wins Eurobike Gold

Quintana Roo has won a Eurobike Gold Award for its top-of-the-line CD 0.1 triathlon bike.  QR, who manufactures triathlon bikes exclusively, designed the CD 0.1 with an 18mm offset downtube toward the driveside.  The effect is that “dirty” air that normally gets tangled up in the drivetrain is rerouted to the smoother “cleaner” non-drive side to improve aerodynamics.

US MSRP for the frameset (frame, fork, headset, seatpost and brakes) is $3,399.  They’ll also offer two fully built models with full Dura-Ace or Ultegra.  They won an iF Design Eurobike Gold award for the design.

Hit ‘more’ to see frame details and the offset downtube/bottom bracket area…

EuroBike Recap – Part 1

A big thanks to Carlton Reid of Quickrelease.tv for sharing his pics from Eurobike with us!

Shown above is Kona’s new Electric Ute bicycle.  It forgoes the front disc brake for what appears to be a regenerative dynamo motor.  Other than that, the frame looks the same as their people-powered Ute.
