This time with fewer mistakes (There’s a pot of coffee and a cup of espresso in the furnace today)
The new 10 speed options from SRAM and Shimano are spawning a resurgence of non-ramped chain-rings and, as seen, bash guards for the new size BCDs.
Odd and even sizes will be available to fine tune your 1×10
Hope Proto-type crank-arms and chain device – Very new in terms of spindles and BB compatibility but kind of retro in the looks department.
Hope’s new incredibly powerful LED offering (available Autumn) – We walked around with sun spots in front of our eyes for hours afterwards.
The two indicators on the top of the light give a power setting for the light and battery power runtime left.
The Hope District – Incredibly bright rear LED for use during the day and night. They had one in a tree outside the window of their show display and you could see it flashing clearly from about 50m away on a clear bright day.
As ever Fox is doing a massive range of gloves – some of them now have a new treatment called ironmask™ where a waterproof treatment is encapsulated into the fibres of the material so it can’t wash out – Not only does water run off nicely, it helps keep the gloves cleaner longer.
OJ Simpson’s favourite – this is the Stealth Bomber – Full-grain leather palm and the knuckles are covered with one of those new smart materials Poron XRD™ (The previous model had carbon knuckles to protect you)
A piss-pot to go to war in…
Flux is available in pink and a smaller size for women.
Fox claims that the air cool material used in their jerseys wicks better than most and can keep you 2 degrees cooler.
