Marin Bikes revealed the Wolf Ridge MTB Bike



Marin Bikes (USA) – One Bike to Rule the Ride.

Marin is proud to announce the debut of the all-new 2018 Wolf Ridge, a bike rooted in the birth of mountain biking, when one bicycle did it all and there were no category-specific machines. Trail riding has evolved since those early days of bombing down Mt. Tam, and your mountain bike experience will never be the same. Welcome to the new way of thinking about the ride, the Marin Wolf Ridge.

In development for nearly five years, the Wolf Ridge was designed using biometric data for the perfect rider fit, applied physics for ideal kinematics based on a rider’s center of gravity, and the desire to create a bike that addresses the holy grail of mountain biking: a full suspension rig that doesn’t make you miss your hardtail on the climbs, and one that you can confidently point towards technical singletrack for the descent.

The Wolf Ridge defines a paradigm shift in thinking that will force the rest of the market to take notice:
  • Where travel does not define category
  • Where a bike can climb and descend equally well
  • Where a bike can be at home in any terrain, with any rider – through the fast and flowy, or the rough and tumble
  • Where the mountain bike experience is mind-blowing
Marin has teamed up with Naild®to design, craft and build the Wolf Ridge around their revolutionary R3ACT – 2 Play® system, bringing a mountain bike to market that out-performs all expectations of performance, providing the rider with the best mountain biking experience that is available today.



Naild’s R3ACT – 2 Play system has unique core kinematics which manage the inertia of acceleration loads. The system does not require platform/lockouts from external devices on any travel applications, even the 160mm travel of the Wolf Ridge. A custom kinematic was developed with Naild to ensure that the Wolf Ridge would have the pedaling prowess previously unattainable in a long travel bike.

“I’ve been riding mountain bikes since my first rigid bike in 1983, while the folks at Naild have been in the sport since before aluminum became a frame choice,” says Matt VanEnkevort, CEO of Marin Bikes. “Those of us that have been around this long have watched the evolution from rigid, to front suspension, to full suspension. If you could have more travel, without a lot of extra weight, or negative pedaling effect, why wouldn’t you? Marin and Naild have combined forces, so that you can have it all - without tricky damping, lockout levers and such. All it takes is superior kinematics and vision. I believe the Naild system will forever change the way we look at travel, and the Wolf Ridge is about to become your new favorite bike. With the Wolf Ridge and the Naild system, a 160mm travel 29er bike can be your everyday ride, and I predict you are going to love it.”

“Naild is honored to be working with a legendary brand like Marin,” says Darrell Voss, founder of Naild. “Marin has literally been at the forefront from the onset of the new age of mountain bikes. The technology that Naild is bringing to market after a decade of solitude development has many symbiotic aspects that are in harmony with the passion of Marin's core values. It’s with much gratitude that Naild was able to work so closely with Marin as we brought the R3ACT – 2 Play technology to life within Marin’s flagship line of bikes.”

Matthew Cipes, Mountain Bike Product Manager for Marin adds, “it’s amazing having a bike that can climb so well, yet rip downhill better than any bike that I have ever ridden. It’s simply mind-blowing, you have to ride it to fully understand the performance.”

Reigning three-time North American Enduro Tour series champion Kyle Warner is looking forward to racing a Wolf Ridge this season. “For me one of the most exciting things about the new Wolf Ridge is how much it will simplify my race weekends from a tuning and bike set up standpoint. For the first time ever, I will be able to focus on setting my bike up to descend as well as possible at a race, without having to make a compromise if there is a significant amount of pedaling involved in some of the stages. The bike is so efficient when pedaling that you can get away with running more of a downhill bias and still know that any energy you put into the pedals is going 100 percent into moving you forward. No more switches, lockouts, or stiff setups for the pedally stages. It's just set and forget and enjoy every moment of the trails!”

Hunt launched the New Tubular Carbon Team Editions Road Wheels



Hunt Bike Wheels (UK) – “When the BIKE Channel Canyon professional race team approached us to supply wheels we were very excited and got to work specifying the ideal tubular wheelset for their tough UCI Continental race campaign against some of the highest level pro teams and races.”

Knowing the need from a one day races is vastly different from a TT Hunt designed two wheelsets:
  • HUNT TEAM 55/80Carbon Aero TUBULAR - Road Wheelset | 1498g | 55/80Deep 25Wide | £949
  • HUNT TEAM 45Carbon Aero TUBULAR - Road/CX Wheelset | 1379g | 45Deep 25Wide | £849
The BIKE Channel Canyon Team are training and racing on our tubeless-ready clincher wheelsets but for the biggest races in the calendar tubular rims were needed as they provide the ability for the riders to keep rolling whilst waiting for their service car in the event of a puncture.

Enve launched the New Road Disc Fork Speed Release



Enve (USA) – Introducing the all new Road Disc Fork Speed Release. Swap wheels with ease while keeping it stylish.

What Is It?
The ultimate aftermarket disc brake specific road cycling fork featuring 32mm of tire clearance and Mavic’s Speed-Release 12mm thru-axle system for rapid tool free wheel removal and installation.

Who Is It For?
Discerning road cyclists and custom frame builders who demand the ultimate in carbon fiber fork construction and the best quick release thru-axle technology.

Why Did they Make It?
Road cycling has evolved over the years and our preferences have shifted from rim brakes and low volume tires to disc brakes and high volume tires. As such, Enve needed to create a fork that matched these preferences while maintaining the premium ride quality ENVE forks are known for. Traditional closed drop-out thru-axle systems pose the problem of either being heavy and/or slow to remove from the bike. The Mavic Speed-Release system addresses these issues by providing the security of a closed drop-out thru-axle, with the convenience and light weight of a quick release.

Podia Launches Spring Summer ’17 Apparel



Podia (Poland) – Podia is launching their latest range of technical cycling apparel with new jersey styles that both revisit Podia’s design foundations and push original ideas further with the help of London based designed Marco Ammannati. New garments have been added to their growing range under the moniker Lightweight Protection that provides protection to elements but are easily packable.

As a teaser for the imminent release Podia published their season’s lookbook, shot on location in Catalunya by Berlin based photographer Constantin Gerlach.

Jerseys:
Five new designs make up the range of jerseys with a combination of updated favourites such as the Club Colours Light and Aerospace Orange along with the use of a new colour that moves away from Podia’s brand colours of orange, purple and gold.

Nova is the first jersey to use the new Cerrillos Blue that takes repeating Podia design elements and puts a new twist to them. Peacocking builds on the work of Marco Ammannati using abstract shapes inspired by the plumage of the majestic bird to create a jersey that is both subtle and elegant, yet colourful and flamboyant.

Lightweight Protection:
As with the rest of their range, Podia has worked hard through a period of prototyping to refine the new Lightweight Protection garments. An ultra lightweight vest that protects the rider’s body in key places from the wind and rain using an advanced DWR material as well as a lightweight mesh to allow for ventilation. An internal stuff pocket ensures it can pack into a very small package ready for the jersey pocket. The new Podia vest is available in black with orange accents or in a bright Aerospace Orange or the new Cerrillos Blue.

A micro-fleece backed Lycra is the key to the new arm warmers that provide a high level of thermal protection for such a small and lightweight item. Available in various colours to match to Podia jerseys, they are also being sold individually to allow for mix and matching.

Pricing & Availability:
The new Podia range is on sale online at Podia.cc since 12th April and in selected resellers throughout the world over the next few weeks.

Jerseys €110, Vests €100 and arm warmers €15 (per side).
