Along with John’s new S-Works Epic WC that we posted earlier in the week, we have recently received a bunch of other new goodies in-store!
We have been using EVOC bike travel bags for a while now and have been impressed with their quality (that hire bag has been EVERYWHERE). Built to the same standard, these packs are lightweight and have plenty of ventilation, making them perfect for the onset of a hot summer. Plus, they come in some pretty neat colours too.
Plenty of drool was spilt over the new Mavic Cosmic CXR 60s that came through the door. These are a great all round wheel, use them for triathlon, hilly races and sprints. The magic is that they use ‘CX technology’ to cheat against the wind. This is essentially a strip that sits between the rim and tyre to smooth the interface and prevent drag. Such a simple idea, and so well executed to save your precious energy. Plus they have Mavic’s Exalith 2 braking surface, so stopping will not be an issue on these hoops. Check out Mavic’s website for more details.
Mitch bolted together our medium sized Yeti SB-75 this week. We decided to go all out on this build… so on went a Rockshox Pike up front, a set of Mavic Crossmax Enduro 650b wheels, XT build kit and a set of Renthal bars. The SB-75 is a 125mm travel 650b bike, which we think will be perfect for the aggressive trail rider on Perth trails. We will be riding it ASAP and letting you know how it goes… The best thing about this bike? If you can prise it away from the shop staff, this bike is for DEMO (S and L sizes also available to demo)!
We got our first delivery of the long awaited S-Works Evade helmet this week. Specialized designed the Evade in a wind tunnel to be the ultimate aero helmet, making it perfect for road and triathlon use. It breathes very well, making it a great choice to keep your head cool over summer. We have them in medium and large sizes in black, white and black/red. If you are keen on one be quick, we received 10 yesterday and we only have 5 left today!
Garmin’s new action camera ‘the Virb’ arrived. With a bunch of nifty features this is definitely an option to consider if you are in the market for something to capture your rides. Check out Garmin’s website for the specs on this impressive little camera.
We now have a good lineup of Rocky Mountains built, including an Altitude, Instinct, Instinct BC Edition and a Thunderbolt, all of which are available to demo. Jimmy has been out and about on the Thunderbolt and immediately decided that he NEEDED one as his personal bike! These Rockys are made with some high-tempo riding in mind, just check out what Geoff Gulevich does with his Altitude and Flatline in this video. Roost Mag also gave the Flatline a glowing review. Flatline framesets are still available in black, why not have a chat with us about building your dream machine?
Brad also got himself a set of S-Works MTB shoes. He was so excited by his new shoes he took a few (excellent) snaps of them. We recommend following Brad’s example and treating your feet to a set of S-Works shoes for Christmas, they will love you for it!
That is all for now, we hope that you shred some dirt or tarmac this weekend.
