Mid-Week Report: The Latest News, Products and Events

Interbike is here and we're excited

Welcome to the September 19th Interbike edition of Road Bike Action’s Mid-Week Report. Here’s a look at some of the latest product and news that came our way in the past week…


PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Interbike started on Tuesday. We were on a tight schedule, but between product drops we were made a few videos. Here are three of our favorite new products from Interbike 2018. The Phoenix hub from Two Point Zero is an interchangeable hub ideal for quick wheel swaps with minimal wrenching. We found a new, swappable power meter for two bikes from  Watteam/Powerbeat. And last but not least the new partnership between Pioneer power meters and Wahoo. INTERBIKE DAY ONE HIGHLIGHTS

PIONEER X WAHOO COLLABORATION

Pioneer has been offering one of the most powerful and data-driven power meters on the market since 2013. It has always been more than just power with live pedal monitoring and nearly 400  data scans per pedal revolution. This is industry leading by leaps and bounds. What has always been lacking is a user-friendly experience as most of the experience was about the raw data and getting accurate data. This has all changed with a slew of new products and partnerships to bring that data to the user in a seamless fashion. FULL STORY

TAKE A LOOK

Just days away from when the annual Interbike trade show opens its doors in Reno, Nevada some 30 years since the show was last located there, Look Cycles, the iconic French brand that not only pioneered the use of clipless pedals, but also, – coincidentally some 30 years ago too –  carbon frames, will be putting on display an all new aero road bike….the Blade 795 RS. MORE INFO AND PHOTOS

NEW OWNERS FOR DIRTY KANZA

On Tuesday, Jim Cummins announced the sale of Dirty Kanza to Life Time, the same company that runs the Leadville Trail 100 and other top tier races. We are thankful for all that Jim and the gang running DK have done for us as well as the gravel community. READ THE STATEMENT

LEVI’S GRAN FONDO JUST WEEKS AWAY

The October 5-7 weekend marks the tenth anniversary of Levi’s Gram Fondo which has now morphed into a larger weekend festival of music, wine and riding. We sat down with Levi to get the inside scoop on this years event. Entries are still open for one of the best Gran Fondos in America. MORE INFO HERE
