German bike maker Bergamont has taken their popular full suspension trail bike and given it a solid reboot. For 2017 the Trailster gets two all new frames that add a bit more versatility to the line-up, growing the bikes’ travel across the range. On one end they’ve reworked their top-tier Trailster with a first time all carbon frame, and on the other side they’ve built a new Plus-sized alloy bike for the added grip you can pull out of a 2.8″ tire. For when the trail drops off more than an all-mountain bike can handle, Bergamont also has an updated version of their Straitline DH bike with a carbon rear end and track adjustability out back. Then almost all the way over to the road, they have a new carbon gravel road riding and endurance Grandurance bike that has a unique adapting solution to picking different width tires based on the day’s riding. Get a good look at each of the new bikes, plus actual weights after the break…

Leading up to the Grand Tours this year, Russian backed ProTour team Katusha went a bit outside of the box for a professional cycling team by announcing a broad range of cycling apparel. While most teams end up selling replica kits through their own clothing sponsors, Katusha as a pro team didn’t have a big name sponsor themselves, so they decided to develop their own clothing line. And once they had the team kit sorted out they decided why not turn the new kit into a business and sell it to cyclists, whether those looking to ride in the bright red of the Pro Team Replica gear or something more subtle. Take a closer look below, plus some today only deals to celebrate the team’s success yesterday in the Tour de France…
