Kyer and Kyle are in Las Vegas at the annual Interbike International Bicycle Exposition, attending educational sessions and exploring the show floor...
Day three at Interbike was spent in seminars for the most part, but we do have a few more cool items left. We barely scratched the surface of what Interbike had to offer, but these are some more of our favorites.
Kyle with an Olympic Gold Medal: Not only were we able to look at the olympic gold medal but Kyle was able to wear it. We later found out the medal was a replica, but it still looked cool. There were also many gold medal winning bikes at the show, like Greg VanAvermaet’s Gold BMC.
CycleOps Hammer Trainer: One of the most anticipated trainers was the CycleOps Hammer model. This trainer works with most virtual training apps. The trainer communicates via Bluetooth or ANT+. The trainer is also one of the quietest on the market. While riding the trainer we noticed it was very smooth to transition between different grades.
Blackburn Outpost Frame Bag: The new way of getting your gear from place to place is the bag. The frame bag is one of the best options. It keeps your center of gravity low, stays out of the way and looks awesome. This bag will fit many different frame options and can be expanded or collapsed. The bag will also keep your contents dry.
Küat NV 2.0 Base Model: Küat has improved the amazing NV rack with the new 2.0 version. The rack now works with fat bikes and easier and more convenient to use. The rack also comes as a base model without a repair stand. You can always add it later if you choose. The new colors look great too.
Blackburn Tallboy Cage: You can carry almost anything with this cage. The cage comes with a koozie that keeps your 16 oz. can cold while transporting it. If 16 oz. is not enough you can remove the koozie and directly mount up to a 24 oz. container.
Haibike E-Bikes: Interbike was full of e-bikes this year. One of our favorite lines was Haibike. They have a full range of bikes, whether you want drop bars or a downhill bike. The bikes mostly use Yamaha or Bosh drive systems.
Albedo 100 Reflective Paints: If you looking for an alternative to stickers for getting your gear highly visible at night, you can now use paint. The Albedo 100 paint comes in a permanent version and a washable version.
