This week is a week without video, light on mountain bike edits and heavy on new kit, this week have been a week of launches and releases from new pedals top grips to e-bikes. For an update on new gear keep scrolling.
Following on from the launch of their Lab 94 range of bags, Muc-Off have now released technical clothing - shorts, jacket, jersey and gloves. The shorts and jacket are waterproof using M.O.D 94 fabric (M.O.D - Muc-Off Developed) ...... right.....
Need we say more? There's a new e-bike on the block, its called the Heckler and it's from a company that weren't e-friendly at the start......
Raceface reckon they have produced a grip that stops you losing perspective on what’s important – getting out and riding your bike. Bold claims, should that be in the test criteria?
Crankbrother has today launched an alloy version of their 'tuned' Synthesis carbon wheels that come at a fraction of the price, are still front and rear specific and still use the coveted Industry 9 hubs. All the details are here.
Pearson Cycles is hosting a series of four gravel rides to highlight the mental health benefits of riding a bike with two charities, Action for Happiness (AFH) and The Mental Health Foundation (MHF) benefitting from 100% of the ticket cost of the Inside Out rides.
All the details are here.
The latest Transition to hit the shop is a new carbon Scout, it looks like it is steering the brand in a new, sleek design era with as capable as ever, progressive geometry. It gets slightly longer travel (140mm), is made from carbon, bucking the brands' trend to launch alloy first and retains its 27.5"wheels. We'd love to get aboard one of these and see how it rides......
The all new Scout is here! Our modern day take on the Bottlerocket, the Scout will awaken your inner child. Manual here, scrub that, skid there, pedal up this. Freedom to boost everything in sight, overshoot every landing without a care, mixed with nose bonking, corner slapping and hooting your way down the trail. Sporty, but just as eager to tackle bigger terrain. The Scout's trail charisma is infectious and will cause you to look at your regular trails through a new perspective. Pedal up and repeat. Follow the link in the profile to watch the shred video, tech video, and read more about the new Scout. Available NOW at your local dealer or on the website 🤘#riderowned
The trail bike built by the Athertons is going on sale and the first 50 builds are reserved for those who have been early supporters of the racers newest venture, those who have been signed up to their mailing list from the start. There will be 50 'build slots' available where customers can choose from a downhill bike or a 29er enduro bike with frames starting at £3,400, each getting a unique 3D printed limited edition number.
YT launches a new kids bike called the Jeffsy Primus, interesting in the fact that this does look like a scaled-down Jeffsy, hopefully boasting the same performance of the adult bike rather than skimping for the kids. Available with 24" and 26" wheels and replicating the head angle of the adults' bike (65. degrees) and with a steep effective seat tube angle (76.5 degrees) it's the bike we're guessing will be at the top of a lot of little shredders wish lists.
Released in the same week as the new YT kids MTB above, the Nukeproof offering is a youth hardtail mimicking their popular Scout. This one also includes the namesake of its older brother, with the brand calling this the Cub-Scout, starting at a reasonable £599.
Full details can be found here.
We've not heard about this brand here at off-road.cc before, judging by their 2018 followers on Instagram, we don't think you will have either. Ok, we know the 'gram isn't everything, but it is where we saw the news about this new flat pedal hailing from Whistler. The new modular pedal can be ordered in any custom colours you like (over 1000 colours!) and it looks like there will be a choice of size, pin length and profiles to follow too, allowing you to spec your own perfect pedal.
Troy Lee Designs have a new full-face downhill helmet out, the successor to the D3 is here - the D4.
