A fair that seems to be increasingly losing its splendor and enamel with the abandonment of the main brands and a formula (that of a trade fair) that seems to find no greater appeal in the public now than the events in which, in addition to seeing, they give the opportunity to “test” the products.
Despite this, in the corridors of Friedrichshafen we found something interesting, perhaps more than something, and like every time we bring you a first overview of the products that most impressed our interest. Products that we will go into further in the coming weeks.
BIONICON BOGA, THE GRAVEL WITH SPARKLING COLORS
If everyone in the Gravel world is looking for soft and refined graphics, Bionicon puts his hand down and presents this model with garish graphics to say the least. Aluminum, Bionicon’s favorite material, and the new Shimano GRX group.
BRIKO, THE HELMET WITH 2 CAMERAS AND RADAR
It is the first Briko helmet, completely respectful of European safety standards, which incorporates two cameras, one front and one rear to warn the cyclist of the arrival of a vehicle from behind, warning him even with a sound.
It can be connected in streaming to a mobile phone and acts as a rear-view mirror, while the front one records images and is like a black box in the event of an accident. Furthermore, in the event of a fall, a notice is sent to a security number (ICE) chosen by the user.
CENTURION of Centurion, a bicycle that attracted us for its great elegance and above all for the brand that we are not used to seeing in Italy. Centurion declares the top of the range with a weight of 9.9 kg, in assembly with Fox 32 Factory, FOX DPS Factory, Magura MT8 brakes, RaceFace Next R crankset, Shimano XTR M9100 group and DT XR1501 wheels. The price? In Germany it is proposed at 7,299.00 euros.
DARIMO, FROM SPAIN A STEM FROM 66 GRAMS
D Darimo, which has always been synonymous with ultra-light carbon parts, presented a handlebar stem of just 66 grams in 100mm length. It’s called IX2, where 2 stands for the number of screws in the closures. Available in sizes from 60mm to 130mm, with inclinations of 6º, 12º, 17º, 25º, compatible with 1 “¼ handlebars.
GAERNE G. SINCRO
Gaerne confirms his G.Sincro. Perfect shoe for XC and Marathon, with 10 on 12 stiffness index and sole available in both carbon and eps, both with Michelin compound lacing that ensures grip and traction on any terrain type and condition. Particular and “showy” the fluorescent orange color that is part of the collection in 2020. It weighs 348 grams in size 43 and costs 339.90 euros.
LOOK GEO TREKKING ROC
Since Look entered the Mtb pedal market with its SPD compatible system, many have converted to the “French”, we have tried the X-Track Race Carbon and we are still using them.
For those who are approaching the world of Mtb, or for e-bikers who want a quality product, but who gives the opportunity to have a flat pedal on one side and release from the other, here comes the Look Geo Trekking Roc.
A perfect choice also for those who make MTB tourism and go from the shoe with sandal attack to go to the beach.
ABS FOR MTB? FROM OUTBRAKER
An ABS brake system? Why not! Outbraker is a small hydraulic system that promises to work just like an ABS.
SADDLES SMP VT30
Selle SMP continues with its new course and at Eurobike it presented two novelties: the F20 (younger sister of the F30) and the VT30C.
The VT30 is a very interesting saddle that maintains all the typical features of SMP, that is the completely open central channel, the nose curved downwards and the trolley very long, but adds a medium padding and with a particular fabric covering to the feel that improves the comfort and also the stability of the biker on the saddle.
TITICI FLEXY FS, NEW 2020 COLORING
The “made in Italy” full does not change in substance, the appears however with new very elegant and sophisticated colors. This gray / purple livery stood out in the fair pavilions.
NEW IDEAS IN TANNUS ANTI-DURING INSERTS
At this moment in which there is a lot of talk about tire inserts, the Korean Tannus presents his idea. Not a tubeless insert, but for an inner tube. According to Tannus this system drives away both punctures and to improve the driving feeling.
In the remote case where you go to drill with Tannus you can proceed “run flat” without any problem. The weight is quite high, but it allows the use of tires with very light shoulder and this brings the weight back to that of a tubeless system. Tannus says that with a light tire the system weighs only 150 grams more than a tubeless tire / liquid system.
