Today, Trek introduced a new line of trail-tough cycling clothing that treads
lighter on the planet.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
It’s been five years since Crankworx added a new stop to its World Tour (Innsbruck joined the party in 2017). Today, a new fourth stop was unveiled. Starting in 2022, the ultimate experience in mountain biking will have a new home in Cairns, Australia.
Born inside the tape | Canyon Refocuses on Speed with the new Strive CFR | Since Barel first rode it to victory at EWS Finale Ligure in 2014, the Strive has staked its claim as one of the fastest Enduro bikes on the hill. With heaps of podiums and an overall Enduro World Series title to its name, it would have been simple to pick a new paint job for 2022 and carry on.
Be honest, it’s all about the descent. When World Champs like Greg Minnaar and Jackson Goldstone aren’t on their office bikes, they’re often throttling a Megatower for all it’s worth. Because 165mm of VPP® lower link travel is more than enough to feel just like the Syndicate. A ±63-degree adjustable head tube angle coupled to a 170mm fork and 29-inch wheels delivers the high-speed security of a downhill bike. Yet the 78-degree seat angle and size-specific geo maintain the Mega’s mega ability to climb, retaining its reputation as the perfect choice for knocking out big gravity rides and DH park laps.
Olympic BMX athlete Caroline Buchanan opens a door to women’s mountain bike freeride and reinvents herself as an icon in a new sport.
