Sea Otter 2018: New carbon wheels from Syncros via: @DirtRag #MTB #DirtRag

Full carbon wheels are not a new idea, but this is the first from a mainstream brand that I can remember. Scott has be slowly ramping up the technology at Syncros since it was purchased from Ritchey a few years back. These wheels are a no-holds-barred implement going as fast as humanly possible on a race course.

Silverton SL 

Price: $3499
Weight: 1250 g

The pictures tell the story here. These wheels pop out of the mold with rim, spoke and hub flange as one piece. The spoke flanges are spread apart to bond in a hub shell which creates tension in the spokes. Tensioned spokes can be lighter while still supporting tremendous loads.

A special DT Swiss hub body is glued into the carbon shell. Standard bearings and cassette bodies are used and the bearings are user-serviceable.

Syncros claims these wheels are both torsionally and laterally stiff, but the rim design and spoke tension creates some horizontal give for a better ride of rough terrain. The wheels aren’t the lightest on the market, but Syncros put ride quality above absolute lightest weight. The spokes are claimed to have twice the impact strength

These wheels aren’t for everyone. A huge price tag and no way to repair accident damage will keep these off the bikes of anyone but the rich, the committed or the sponsored riders. Cross-country racing is an important part of Scott’s racing program, and these wheels show some serious commitment to the team riders and XC racing as a whole

Introduced in 2015, the Alchemy Arktos trail bike used 27.5″ wheels and a new suspension design from David Earle. It’s been very well received, but lacked a 29er option…until now. The new Alchemy Arktos 29 revised not just wheel size, but also travel, geometry and more to create a modern long travel mountain bike. Rear […]

VIDEO and Photo Feature: Canyon Grail Gravel Bike with Hover Bar – Sea Otter 2018 via: @GravelCyclist #GravelGrinder

canyon grail gravel bike review and videoArguably one of the most controversial gravel bikes on the market, the Canyon Grail is either loved – or hated. Within hours of the bike’s announcement, the internet was covered in Grail related memes and a ton of publicity – good and bad. No matter your take on the bike, the Canyon Grail is a marketing department’s dream! JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew caught up with Devon, Canyon’s Director of Marketing, to get the inside scoop on the Canyon Grail.

Thanks for watching!

Above, the Canyon Hover handlebar. You’re going to love it. Or hate it.

In person, the Hover handlebar looks sharp, but definitely isn’t for everyone.

Canyon has a history of producing clean and aerodynamic road bikes, with cables well hidden from the wind. The Grail isn’t so clean aerodynamically looking head on, and one has to wonder if they’ll clean up this area of the bike in a future release?

rochester mn mtb blog Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends.
