Industry 9 Ultralite Race

The ultimate. When there is nothing left but the ultimate in performance. Built to the elusive No Tubes ZTR Race 7000 rim, I9 has concocted what they believe may be the stiffest 1300 gram wheelset on the market (and it’s still a 32 hole 3x lacing pattern!). Sharing all the same traits as their Ultralite wheelset...only with a 140 gram rim diet. They give you the Ultralite Race

MSRP USD1299 @ 1320 gm
A race day wheelset aimed at giving you the best possible tool for the job. I9's one-piece spoke design (no nipples) keeps the wheel light where it matters; at the rim. Coupling this with immediate engagement, stiff aluminum spokes, and Stan’s ZTR 355 rims, it leaves little to be desired out of your wheels.

Contador prepare for the pave

Two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador completed a course reconnaissance of the cobbled sectors which will be used in the upcoming Tour de France in July, and he enlisted the help of Belgian Peter Van Petegem to help him hone his technique on riding over "the stones".

Van Petegem, a former winner of both Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders, is an expert at tackling the worst that the area has to offer. He escorted the Spaniard as he rode sections of the route for the third stage, a 207km route from Wanze in Belgium to Arenberg Porte du Hainaut, which heads across some of the same pavé sectors used in Paris-Roubaix.

"Having ridden both yesterday and today with a great champion like him is a huge advantage," said Contador. "He gave me a lot of advice on how to go into the pavé and about the equipment, etc. In these two days, I learned more about the pavé than in my whole life. His advice will be very important."

Ellsworth Glimpse

It's easier to get a Glimpse than an Epiphany and that was the idea: take out best selling cross country bike, the Epiphany, long heralded as the "Holy Grail of Bikes," but put in a package that would be easier on the wallet. The Glimpse geometry and function is modeled after the Epiphany, painted rather than anodized and spec'd as a complete bike out of the box. If you thought you coudn't afford the legendary and state of the art suspension experience of an Ellsworth ICT bike, think again. Ellsworth took time to qualify this project, using an international blend of efficient sourcing that brings the performance and feel of an Ellsworth package that is affordable to everyone. With US-certified seamless aluminum SST tubeset, rockers machined in Ellsworth's high-tech machine in Oregon, customized US-made Fox suspension components, Easton's carbon cockpit, PURE Shimano SLX component group, grounded on Ellsworth's outstaning All Mountain Wheels with a 15mm quick release on the front, topped off with a Genuine Leather Saddle. The efficiency of the Glimpse is more than how well it pedals, Tony Ellsworth personally captured a Glimpse of the Epiphany and put it in a box that anyone can open and ride.

  • Fork: Fox 32 Float 140 15qr

  • Reynold RZR

    The stunningly light RZR is the first product to come out of Reynolds' new ultra-premium Composites Studio division and the numbers are indeed jaw-dropping: our tubular test pair weighs just 896g without skewers (364g front, 532g rear, 34g skewers) – US$6,000 per pair.

    Mark Cavendish PRO signature components

    The £149.99 Vibe Sprint stem with full carbon body has a claimed double rigidity of the regular PRO Vibe 7S stem, and uses a Headloc clamp to eliminate lateral movement. Weight starts at 170g, it’ll be available in 105, 120 and 135mm lengths.

    The ubiquitous ‘r’ word, rigidity, is also the key to the new Cavendish handlebar too with its reinforced alloy, internally splined construction. Priced at £74.99 it weighs from 295g and comes in 40, 42 and 44cm sizes.

    DT Swiss 2011 fork

    The new Torsion Box lower legs are cast out of two pieces of magnesium. They are press fitted and offer better stiffness than one-piece legs and DT’s previous carbon lowers, but at a much lower price. The only cost is a 60g to 100g weight gain; for example, the XMC 100mm Race carbon model weighs 1,440g versus the new XMM magnesium version at 1,490g.
    “Now everything [in the trail/enduro line] will be in the $600-$1,000 range, even with the carbon lowers.”
