Eurobike 2019: Oil Slicked Funn, QR GoPro mount and more!

by 0

Funn shows us its limited edition oil slick pedals, new goggles, a clever GoPro mount and more!

Funn’s booth at Eurobike is bubbling to the brim with parts and components so varied that it’s easy to forget where you are.

Funn oil slick pedals
Will they launch them or not?

First up is this pair of limited edition oil slick flat pedals that were so new and so secret that Funn isn’t even 100% certain if they’ll finally go into production, but judging by the reaction from those who saw them it’s a safe bet they will.

With 22 replaceable pins in total, a sealed bearing and DU bushing, these slick… sorry… oil slick pedals follow the tried and trusted formula of all great pedals. Great looking, grippy and simple.

Which colour do you choose?

Also on show are Funn’s range of aftermarket dropper post remotes. These cable operated remotes work with Funn’s own dropper posts and also all popular makes of cable dropper post on the market from other manufacturers.

Wait, there are more!

Colour choices include blue, orange, green, purple and black. We did ask if they would make an oil slick one and the said they likely would, if/when the pedal launches.

If Funn and oil don’t float your boat then what about the Stash took that cleverly hides in your steerer tube? We reported on this smart little product a week or so ago and we now have one to test so watch out for an upcoming review.

The Stash tool is a direct rival to the OneUp tool but doesn’t require to you tap your steerer tube to fit. It houses all the most commonly used Allen keys, a flat-headed screwdriver, spoke key and a few other simple little tools. Pricing is just $55, and they come in either black or orange.

Funn goggles

Funn is also working on releasing a range of their own branded goggles that look very good. They offer full coverage, come in a range of lens options, and are fully vented to prevent steaming up, AND they’ll be priced competitively too.

Secret GoPro mount.

And finally! We managed a sneak peek at this innovative quick-release GoPro mount that Funn is prototyping. The machined alloy component uses a sliding sleeve and spring-loaded ballbearing to quickly lock your GoPro in place.

We imagine this would be a great item to have with numerous mounts located on your helmet, bars, seat post and elsewhere with the QR system allowing for fast and easy swapping from location to location.

Do any of these products catch your eye? Are you in to oil slick? Do you need more Funn? Comment below!
