There’s nothing quite like the energy of Interbike–it could be all the neon buzz of Las Vegas with its abundance of gnarly (we’re stopping at gnarly). Sin City aside, we really enjoyed two days of outdoor demo and three days at the main show, and we wanted to give you a quick preview of some of the companies and products we saw at Interbike 2015.
We’ll be getting much more in depth on all of these products in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for detailed product reviews and updates about gear, kits, bikes and new innovations in the world of cycling.
GT Grade demo out at Bootleg Canyon. Where the weather was really just sort of “meh.”
Lezyne cycling computers with GPS are finally hitting the market! The Super and the Power are available now!
Natural Health Care Products for Athletes.
Brooks was showing off their new carbon offering: the Cambium C13. In fact, they’re looking for testers right now, and you could be one of them. Visit Brooks’ website if you’re drooling as much as we were.
The Kinetic booth was showing off some cool things, and we’re stoked on their trainers and offset bottle cages–lefties should be stoked too.
Louis Garneau brought out the big guns with bikes to match your kit. That’s seriously custom.
Zipp Course 30 that features a removable plug for optional thru axles.
Fuji proved it with a scale. And we’re pretty sure that neither Tom Brady nor Bill Belichick had any contact with it.
Giant had new shoes, helmets, saddles, and way more on display.
Coming to a kid’s head near you . . . or maybe mine too. I dunno.
BMC was showing off the pretty stuff–with super light fishing line.
Cateye unveiled the Volt 6,000. Yep, it’s so bright it needs its own fan.
Scott’s Foil. ‘Nuff said, amiright?
Scott also plans to foil road rash with their new kits that utilize abrasion resistant panels.
We also met up with Earl, the GUTR guy. No more sweat in your eyes.
Powerbeat looks fully functional and shows off balance too.
Fabric had saddles all day in all kinds of innovative materials. One-piece carbon all the way to the one below (that honeycomb looking thing is the inner padding). That and silicone tape where even the white stays shiny.
Vittoria was showing off their Graphene.
We tried out Rotor’s UNO, and we video-bombed Dave Zabriskie. We call that success.
VP gave out some socks, and their pedals look every bit as cool.
KitBrix fit together to carry all the stuff.
Brand new colors on Kask’s Protone for this season, and hopefully more availability in the US on its way. Oh, yah, and NBD, but THE Liz Hatch walked us through the product line. We might have embarrassed her by making her autograph something.
Fabric’s new ratcheting multi-tool comes with everything but the banana.
Lezyne’s new ABS chuck stood up to the lightning strikes in Bootleg Canyon.
Raleigh took us on a walk and talk with their road and gravel bikes.
Storage solutions. Enter, the Bottle Pod. And lots of other stuff.
The Shockstop was so comfortable, this guy jumped back in surprise. We know there’s a clever pun in there somewhere.
Polar’s got some new GPS multi-sport and cycling computers. Maps? Yup.
Latest and greatest from Catlike. We liked this one because of the removable visor liner.
Showers Pass Bags for gear, commuting, transitions, you name it! The guy in the background was trying to demonstrate.
LifeBeam promises to get your heart rate right. And Lazer’s new version of the Z1 has us stoked.
Fix It Sticks improves on their cases–one straps to your arm or work stand. Yup.
Kali goes aero and even safer with new rotational protection (the little blue strips shown below).
Cool clothing and stylish designs for women cyclists from SheBeest.
Cobi has control lights, turn signals, music, weather and more with the push of a button.
Oakley’s lenses for every occasion–especially fine dining.
That’s a mere smattering of what we saw in the desert. Interested? We are. We can’t wait to review these products and see how they work outside the showroom. Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we’ll be taking a closer look at these and way, way more.
