IB16: Enduro upgrades more than bearings with new fork wiper seals, DT Swiss freehub seals

enduro rockshox suspension fork wiper seal upgrade kit

enduro rockshox suspension fork wiper seal upgrade kit

Enduro’s new flangeless fork seals form the wiper and seal into one piece, and they removed the lipped flange on the outside edge so that it’ll sit deeper into the fork and stay put. The black wiper is a firmer than stock urethane to hold up better and keep more crud out, giving you the option to use a lube-soaked foam ring in its cavity or not. The lower blue-ish section is infused with a special friction reducing polymer to keep everything sliding ultra smooth without letting oil escape the fork’s internals.

They’ll be available for 32mm and 34mm stanchion forks from Fox and Rockshox, with 36 and 40 coming soon, along with 35mm for Rockshox. Retail is $30.

IB16: Magura’s Danny MacAskill-designed single finger brake lever upgrade & Raceline MT8

magura-danny-macaskill-single-finger-brake-lever-upgrade01

Magura’s major announcements usually come in the summer at their own press event in Sedona, Arizona, so the trade shows seem to be reserved for small announcements, tweaks and updates. At Eurobike, we heard rumor the Boltron e-bike fork could possibly end up in their enduro mountain bike suspension lineup with minimal tweaks. At Interbike, we saw a few updates to their brakes.

Above is a new one-finger brake lever designed in conjunction with Danny MacAskill. The back edges are rounded and smoothed, so there’s no sharp points that could dig into your fingers. It’s an upgrade part for any of their brakes that’ll run about $50 per side.

IB16: Nutrition Roundup – Bonk Breaker, Clif, Guayaki, Bounce, Glukos & more!

bonk-breaker-mint-chocolate-chip-energy-bar01

Bonk Breaker has added Mint Chocolate Chip to their lineup, which is all gluten free and densely packed with energy. While not my personal favorite flavor combo in general, these were pretty darn tasty and worked well to fuel our ride-heavy, sleep-deprived #EscapeFromInterbike road trip from Vegas to North Carolina.

Check out more tasty little treats below…

IB16: Hydrapak Hydrant creates pressurized water on demand from your hydration pack

hydrapak-hydrant-on-demand-water-system-folding-cups-insulated-hosesinterbike-2016-592

At some point on a ride, after a ride, or at a camp site, you’re going to want more than the trickle from your bite valve. Sure, you can have a friend stand on your hydration pack as you squeeze the valve (or just place the bag higher than the valve), but if you really want pressurized water on demand Hydrapak has a solution. Their new Hydrant gives you plenty of water on demand, but you’ll need a military spec bladder to get it…

IB16: Bar Mitts Winter Bot keeps your water from freezing, sister company Tail Gater puts a table on your car’s tire

barmitts-winter-bot-bottle-insulator-extreme-road-tailgator-tire-tableinterbike-2016-568

Yes, you’ve probably seen the memes circulating by now – winter is coming. For some of us that means breaking out all the equipment we have to use just to stay alive in the coldest months. One issue that has always plagued riders in extremely cold temperatures? Freezing water. Ride at temperatures below zero and it won’t take long for that water bottle to become a block of ice.

Bar Mitts thinks they have the solution with their new Winter Bot. Basically a Bar Mitt for your bottle, the neoprene sleeve should keep your water liquid, and there may be a summer version in the works as well…

IB16: Close up with Denise Mueller’s record setting KHS Project Speed bike

Denise Mueller with her coach, John Howard

Interbike is always filled with a number of eye catching one-offs, but there was one bike roaming the show attracting more attention than the others. Along with that bike were two incredible competitors – the bike’s pilot Denise Mueller, and her coach and three time Olympian John Howard. A former Paced Bicycle Land Speed Record holder himself, John approached Denise with the goal of setting out to not only be the first woman to attempt the record, but to become the outright record holder. The conditions ended up preventing Denise from taking the top spot, but she did set the women’s record in the process at an incredible 147.7 mph, on a fixed gear, behind a Land Rover, on the Salt Flats.

When we spoke with Denise at Interbike she was already forming plans for the next attempt, and knows she has the speed…

IB16: Reynolds Aero wheels get wider and add Industry Nine hubs for disc and rim brakes

reynolds-aero-wheels-interbike-2016-460

Ironman Kona may have come and gone, but Reynolds Cycling is already preparing for next season with an update of their Aero wheel line up. Illustrated by last week’s tri bike launches, the aero world is in a bit of a cross wind as companies debate going with disc or rim brakes for future models. Not only does Reynolds have an answer for either path with their new wheels, but they also cut down on the total depth of rims with just three different models – though all are wider and tubeless ready…

IB16: Kryptonite puts security on lock down with new true double deadbolt U-locks

2017 Kryptonite Kryptolock new u-lock double deadbolt bicycle lock

The all-new Kryptonite Kryptolok is their “new U”, which is a true double deadbolt design rather than the bent foot design they’ve used for years. And that’s not the only update – the shackle’s ends have deeper pass-through of the lock cylinder, so it’s stronger, and the cylinder is longer so there’s more space inside. Lock in all the details and other new products below…
