KHE Bikes launched their New KHE x AFFIX BMX Tires



KHE Bikes (Germany) – KHE Bikes proudly present their new BMX tires. The KHE x AFFIX tire was designed by Bram Verhallen (KHE Flatland Driver & Industrial Designer). It was very important for Bram that it has all the qualities that make a BMX tire of today. Due to the grooves in the tread, the tire is very smooth, fast and you can simply roll forward or backward. The surface is slightly diamonded to have an optimal grip on the ramp or even with the shoe. With 2.40" the tire is really greasy. Just for street or park the shocks are optimally dampened during jumping. A central point for KHE is the weight and the stability. With the KHE x AFFIX tire KHE Bikes succeeded with a weight of just 630g.

Details:
  • Weight: 630g
  • Size: 20" Inch (for 20" rims only)
  • Width: 2,40"
  • Pressure: MAX 4bar
  • Available in black, black brown, blue

Magura's New HC3 Brake Lever for Individual Tunning



Magura (Germany) – The newly developed HC3 lever – which was especially engineered with the input of Danny MacAskill for his signature edition of the MAGURA MT7 – is now available as spare part for tuning.





The HC3 is shortened and carries a lot of features for individual adjustments. Every rider can tune in his personal braking feeling perfectly. A unique feature is the adjustment of the leverage which changes the braking power.

The HC3 lever is compatible to Magura models: MT6, MT7, MT8 and MT Trail Carbon. To be on the safe side when switching from your old lever Magura recommend visiting your local bicycle dealer and MAGURA specialist.

Tech Features:
  • Optimum modulation: the 1-finger lever delivers maximum performance for every rider through its unreached modulation
  • Reach Adjust w/ Allen3: the lever can be adjusted quick and simple to your handsize, finger length or personal preferences
  • Ratio Adjust w/ Torx T25: when changing the leverage mechanically the braking power is adjusted differently, which leads to perfect amount of braking power for every situation:
    1. high leverage on sticky terrain = high braking power, wet and slippery ground
    2. small leverage = extended modulation
  • Improved ergonomy of the lever – the middle finger now has a bigger contact area, when pulling the lever to the handlebar the fingers aren‘t pinched anymore
  • weight: 38g

Experience the next level of grip with GripGrab InsideGrip



GripGrab (Denmark) – Danish cycling and running accessories specialist GripGrab has never made a secret of taking consumer feedback seriously. Together with feedback from their GripGrab Local Heroes, an ingenious invention changes your perception of grip.

They present a new concept to achieve exceptional grip in cycling gloves.

Glove designers usually focus on grip between glove and handlebars rather than on improving overall grip. Adding grip on the outside of the palm does not factor in that handlebar grips normally provide plenty of friction to the glove itself, but that on the inside of the glove, the palm will tend to slide on the palm material and compromise grip.

GripGrab’s solution features silicon grips located inside the glove. They improve friction between glove and palm, making the glove work like a second skin with an unprecedented grip. The fingertips incorporate the same approach and ensure grip to the brake levers and gear shifters.

“Since the majority of mountain bikers already have nonslip grips on their bars which work well with gloves, the real challenge was to ensure the same high level of grip and connectivity between the rider’s hand and the glove. This is where the GripGrab InsideGrip prevails.”, GripGrab Director of R&D, Kristian Kroyer, explains.

There are two models in the new SS17 range benefitting from the InsideGrip innovation. The GripGrab Vertical and Racing full finger MTB and Downhill gloves will give dedicated riders all the grip they could possible wish for, while maintaining GripGrab’s famous high quality and durability. Moreover, using the InsideGrip innovation prevents blisters, as there will be no rubbing between the hand and the glove.

CeramicSpeed announces a New improved formula for their UFO Racing Chains



CeramicSpeed (Denmark) – "World’s fastest racing chains to ride double the distance and save more watts".

The cycling industry’s leading ceramic bearing manufacturer, CeramicSpeed, announces a new improved formula for their UFO Racing Chains originally launched in 2015.

As one of the manufacturer of the highest quality ceramic bearings on the market, CeramicSpeed delivers the lowest friction bearing products and fastest racing chains in the world. Aiming to provide the fastest drivetrain solutions, CeramicSpeed’s passion for achieving the lowest friction levels is deeply rooted in the company’s DNA. Staying true to this mission, CeramicSpeed acquired Ultra Fast Optimization Racing chains in 2015, moving the company’s production base from the US to Europe.

The CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains are high quality chains crafted by high-end manufacturers, each individually optimized by hand in Denmark following a multi-step process involving a unique wax formula with special additives. The addition of optimized racing chains to CeramicSpeed’s existing ceramic bearings ranges has followed the company’s natural development. The world’s fastest racing chains have already been a part of the victory for many athletes and riders worldwide. This new improved formula opens up even greater performance opportunities.

Double the distance – 600 km/370 miles of optimal performance:
Friction Facts, a US-based drivetrain efficiency lab, was recently acquired by CeramicSpeed and has become a vital cog in the company’s international R&D commitment to performance. The fruits of this expansion are shown in the development of this improved version of ultrafast racing chains.

Since its original launch in 2015, the CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains have guaranteed optimal energy gains for about 320 km/ 200 miles of riding. After this distance, the power savings were seen to slowly decrease with chain/lube wear. Thanks to the new improved formula, the CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains now last almost double the distance and feature even lower friction.

Following several months of lab and road tests, the wax-based ultrafast optimization formula used in the UFO Chain Optimization process ensures that the new racing chains will now last 600 km / 370 miles before significant efficiency losses, and potentially even longer. Ideally-suited for the racing ambitions of a serious rider, the CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains remain the perfect choice for optimal road applications and riding in dry and clean weather conditions.

Up to 15% less friction:
While the distance increases, the friction diminishes. The latest frictional tests show that compared to the earlier version of the CeramicSpeed UFO Chain, the new formula shaves off up to 15% more of the chain friction. Due to the new improved formula and in-house performance testing, the CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains will now be produced and offered in two options: an optimized KMC SL 11s and 10s chain which is compatible with SRAM, Campagnolo and Shimano, and a new optimized Dura-Ace HG901 11s chain specific to Shimano drivetrains. The chains will continue to be delivered together with a bottle of Squirt lube for maintenance use after the 600 km / 370 miles have been surpassed.

CeramicSpeed’s Oversized Pulley Wheel System now compatible with Shimano 9100/9150



CeramicSpeed (Denmark) – Visibly improving the performance of riders worldwide, CeramicSpeed completes its Oversized Pulley Wheel System (OSPW System) offering for Shimano with the new 9100/9150 series.

Answering the demand of riders worldwide, CeramicSpeed has broadened the compatibility of the most efficient oversized pulley wheel system available on the market with a new offering. The CeramicSpeed OSPW System can now complete its Shimano offering with the new 9100 series compatibility. The new OSPW System features a 13/19T pulley wheel combination and can fit cassettes of up to 32t.

13/19T pulley wheels:
Because of the design of the 9100 derailleur, the R&D team at CeramicSpeed has tested and concluded that the best performing combination of oversized pulleys is 13-tooth upper and 19-tooth lower pulley. The design of the original derailleur does not allow for a pulley wheel to be larger than 13-tooth in the upper slot. With the 13-tooth upper pulley in place, there was more space for the lower pulley, and thus the 19-tooth option was found optimal.

Bigger pulleys, increased longevity:
The entire design of the OSPW System for Shimano 9100 series is very strong and stiff, ensuring a high durability factor. In-house tests show that the bigger number of teeth on pulley wheel the longer pulley wheel lifetime. Since the lower pulley is the one most exposed to wear, the 13/19T combination is a great advantage for durability.

30% less friction:
“Compared to the original Shimano pulley wheels, in-house tests have shown 30% less friction in the new CeramicSpeed OSPW System. Thanks to the high-quality CeramicSpeed bearings, lightweight components and proven design, the OSPW System for Shimano 9100 series improves the bike performance of any rider.”

Tested both in the lab as well as on the road, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka rider, Nathan Haas, has already finished in 4th place at the Amstel Gold Race, riding with the new CeramicSpeed OSPW System for Shimano 9100. He adds that “CeramicSpeed is an awesome partner to work with as their products simply make riding bikes smoother. I especially like the OSPW System, it’s the future!”.

New Raptor 27.5 Carbon Wheels from HED Cycling



HED Cycling (USA) – “They said it couldn't be done. Plus-size tires and bikes weren't supposed to be fast, win races, or feel as light and agile as their skinny-tire cousins. We took that as a challenge, and sought to create the widest, lightest, highest-performance 27.5+ carbon wheel in the world. After countless prototypes and hours of testing, we are extremely proud to bring you the new Raptor“.

The numbers don't lie - 45mm external rim width, 40mm inner rim width, and a jaw-dropping 430 gram rim weight. Combined with a new rim bed shape, tubeless setup is a snap (literally), and offers superb air retention - even at super low pressures. HED Cycling offer several hub options to suit your needs, and all Raptors are hand-built with their stringent QC process.

While the Raptor will definitely inject some True Speed into your 27.5+ trail bike, they can also be used as summer wheels for your fat bike, when built on hubs with fat bike spacing. HED Cycling test riders report that they’re nothing short of “brilliant!”
