CoreBike 2015 Part 3

by 1

After wandering the halls and chatting to the many industry folk that laid siege to Whittlebury Hall at Core Bike last week, we made a note of some very shiny things. Here’s what caught our eye at Core – part three…

First up it’s Mondraker’s new Summum Carbon downhill bike.

Ooooofffffftttttttt

Mondraker recently released the new Summum and also the details of their new team rider: Danny Hart. The new Summum has adopted 27.5 inch wheels and is full carbonium.

One Industries had some new colours on show. One that caught most of our eyes was this Rasta-style jersey.

Easy now….

Banshee had a good spread of bikes to show as well. The 27.5in, 160mm travel Rune bike has been on the circuit for the past few years and has looked pretty fast under many riders.

  1. Are the DMR dropouts backwards compatible with older bolts?
