Last Thursday we were lucky enough to be invited to the Cycling Sports Group UK Product Launch to view all the new offerings from their range of bike brands including GT Bicycles, Cannondale, Mongoose, Charge Bikes, WeThePeople and Sugoi. The venue was Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey so we got chance to drool at some of the shiny cars as well as all the latest bike schmutter!
All the brands are continually investing in their products and this was apparent as we looked round. We’re looking forward to getting some of the mountain bikes from the various brands on test once they are available later in the year.
The GT Fury got revamped last season and has carried Rachel and Gee to the podium this year. The new 2014 model is looking equally as impressive.
The new GT Fury was as eye-catching as ever!
- GT have some changes in their line-up, most interestingly the Force and Force X, with the latter being a UK-specific model. The Force X has been revised slightly to create a spec that GT feels will be better suited for the British market.
The GT Sensor Elite.
2014 sees Mongoose turn 40! And the brand is still going strong, they’re one of the most recognised bike brands that appeal to multiple generations.
Charge Bikes have had an exciting year with partnerships arising with the likes of Red Bull, Vans and Levi’s. Their simple non-intimidating designs have a loyal following which is growing globally. We’re looking forward to testing out the Cooker later in the season!
Charge have become known for their saddles.
