Eurobike 14 – Day 4.3

Round three from the halls and corridors of Eurobike for today.


GPS and navigation giants Garmin were showing off their helmet camera.


For 2015 the SR Suntour RUX DH fork gets minor tweaks and a flat crown.


Swedish protection brand POC were showcasing some crazy tech on their mountain and road helmets…


QR codes to allow passers by to get emergency contact info from your body as you lie in a pool of your own blood & a crash sensor that will text your mum that you’ve fallen off unless you tell it not to.


Also on POC lids was the option to run an emergency trigger that will send a message containing your whereabouts to a pre-determined contact. Ideal for those who ride alone?


Sadly Polygon are still without a UK outlet for their DH bike. Just over 4000 Euro would get you on in Germany though…


The Mondraker Summum has been fully tweaked to suit it’s new 275 wheels. When asked about a carbon one in development there were knowing looks exchanged…


The 0mm stems are still available aftermarket, but their all-mountain bikes are specced with a more conservative 30mm offering.


The full carbon Foxy shares the geometry of the alu version but is lighter, stiffer and perfect for Enduro.


The Canyon Torque is getting a little longer in the front for next year. We have one on test at the moment so keep your eyes on the site for a full review soon.


Canyon were also showing a full suspension road bike that senses the terrain and takes the sting out of those cobbles.


We still fondly remember the TV series from Pashley…


Retro Camelbak – rocking for 25 years!
