New Products – January

Happy New Year! With the 2016 season just getting going we are seeing some of the hot new products for the year starting to roll through the door.  We have some exciting new bikes from Knolly, Transition, and Devinci.  On top of that Deity, Schwalbe, and Onyx Racing Products have some great new gear that is just begging to be slung on your whip.

 

First on the table is the new Carbon Patrol from Transition Bikes.  This sub 7lb 155mm bike is looking to make a big splash in the Enduro race seen and will also be the perfect companion for those big epics with gnarly terrain.  Pinkbike just did a great write-up on it that you can read HERE.IMG_4757

 

 

Next up, from the guys and gals up in Canada, we have the new 2016 Devinci Troy Carbon.  This bike is looking like it might be one-off our go to favorites for the Helena area riding.  Sporting 150mm or Split Pivot driven travel and a cool $2100 price tag for the Frame/shock it’s really a no brainer.  The 2016 up date on this bike sports a longer top tube and a slacked out head tube angle.  If you’re looking for a new trail bike and you want the best out there but don’t want to completely destroy your savings account this might be your ticket!  IMG_4734

 

 

Knolly Bikes has always impressed us, but for 2016 they are looking to straight up blow us away.  Their line up is off the hook for the upcoming season!  With the introduction of their new Endorphin Trail bike late last year and the addition of two all new bikes for the 2016 season you couldn’t pick a better time to purchase a Knolly frame.  Arriving this spring, the new Carbon Warden is looking to be an incredible bike, we will do a full write-up on it when it comes through the door.  The new Delirium (shown bellow) is Knolly’s new big hit park bike boasting a 170mm of travel via their 4×4 suspension design.  This is going to be one heck of a bike for all of you out there wanting a good park bike but still want to go pedal for your descents.  The Delirium can be built up with a Dual Crown fork for DH runs or set up as an All Mountain plow machine.

Schwalbe Procore dual chamber tire system is in stock in all wheel sizes. This should be a great addition if you’re wanting to run lower pressure, and help from flat protection.  We will to be installing this on a number of our teams enduro race bikes for the upcoming race season.  If your interested in a Procore set up stop on by and we can run you through the set up and the full benefits.

IMG_3240Last on our list of hot new gear is a hub set that you just cant not take a look at. The Onyx Racing Product hubs.  These are unique in the hub world with their use of a sprague clutch for the freewheel mechanism.  This design gives the rider instant engagement and zero drag!  When this hub freewheels there is no noise, it is completely silent! Combine that with a hybrid ceramic bearing set-up and these beauties just want to roll for days! They really do feel like there is lest rolling resistance with these hubs over other high-end hubs on the market.  They are available in all the sizes you could want and in a ton of stock colors, plus the option for custom colors and graphics!  We have a set of these built up on our demo bike if you would like to give them a try!IMG_3236 IMG_3238
