The Dächle Disc, which is German dialect for “Little Roof” in their neck of the woods, gets a pointed bevel on the outside edge. Why? Quite simply, it’ll get into your caliper easier, which can save seconds, which can mean winning a race or eating Ramen. Again.
They’ll be offered in 2.05mm (200/180mm) and 1.85mm (160/140mm) rotor thickness. Thicker one absorbs more heat, so it’s on the larger diameter rotors.
Just in case it’s not painfully obvious how this works, they had a diagram. How has no one done this before?
Connecting your calipers to your Dächle Disc are their new stainless steel backed pads. The steel means lower heat transfer into caliper, and it’s stiffer so they can make it thinner and put more pad material on it, giving you 25% more braking time. There’s no paint on it, which could melt and stick the pad to the pistons.
Of course, you’ll need to pull a lever to use those brakes. And if your levers and shifters form the unholy combination of I-Spec Shimano brakes and Matchmaker SRAM shifters, well, you’ll looking at a messy cockpit. Unless…
…you have the new Trickstuff Matshi! This ingenious little piece of metal lets you mount SRAM shifter pods directly to Shimano I-Spec brake lever clamps. Hooray, compatibility!
Now that you’ve got all that cleaned up, why not go ahead and convert your aging 2×10 to a 1×10? What’s that, you need more gear range but can’t afford all the swaps and mods to go to X01? No problem! Trickstuff’s new 10-speed mountain bike cassette gives a bigger range, running from 11 to 40. This is a prototype, their goal is to get it down to about 270g to compete with XTR. Alloy large cogs, titanium center and steel for smallest four.
To go with it, they’ve made a narrow/wide chainring. It’s a 104bcd and has 32/34/36/38 tooth count options.
And if your bike is an entirely different animal and is running a Rohloff or Pinion internally geared system, they’re working on the first ever trigger shifter system for those. Each lever pulls one way, one for up shift and one for downshift. They have special ratchets inside that let one release when the other pulls. Magic.
These are just prototypes, no production timeline was given.
