Day two of Eurobike and we’ve seen plenty more weird and wonderful things. More on the weird later, but for now lets focus on the wonderful with our top five picks from today! We’ve plenty more photos to share with you so keep your eyes peeled on our facebook page for a gallery with more highlights from today!
We love the Transition Covert here at IMB, and now they've made a carbon frame, given it cock and balls technology and painted it bright yellow we love it even more. As well as the carbon upgrade, the Covert has been given an extra 10mm rear travel, giving it a total of 160mm. If big wheels are your thing then be sure to check out the 29er aluminium version.
The Nukeproof Scalp proved to be an exceptionally popular downhill bike in the UK. Two years in the making, Nukeproof now present their new downhill frame, the Pulse. As well as updated geometry, the new frame is also lighter and stiffer than it's predecessor, with double row bearings and more adjustability. Fans of the Scalp needn't fret, as it will still be readily available.
The Super is Bell's new helmet aimed at the all-mountain rider. As well as incredible protection, the Super features 25 vents to stop you overheating on those long rides. It also features a built in GoPro mount so you can capture all the epic action on your favourite trails. The Super will be available to buy early next year in a wide variety of colours. Be sure to check out our facebook page for news on the new Full-9 downhill helmet from Bell.
The GT Force LE is the weapon of choice for Dan Atherton, and just look at the success he's having on the Enduro circuit with it! The Force LE has 150mm of rear wheel travel and 160mm up front, with a double and bash drivetrain courtesy of Shimano XT and Race Face Turbine cranks. The perfect enduro race bike!
I'm sorry, I'm trying not to fill these posts with downhill bikes, but when Mondraker dangled this Summum in front of me I just couldn't resist! I hope you understand, and I'll try harder tomorrow I promise.
