Fenix A10 Shimano 105 Complete Road Bike - 2015 Black/White, S

Given its name and material, we're inclined to think that the Fenix A10 Complete Road Bike is Ridley's attempt to revive aluminum in the cycling industry. Or maybe it's a reference to the material's inherent climbing pedigree. Whatever the case, the Ridley team has dumped some R&D resources into the A10's material. It's also given it a geometry that's virtually the same as the line-topping Noah, so it's ready to race if you are. In an age where even the water bottle cages are carbon fiber, Ridley hasn't forgotten that aluminum still has the qualities that make for an ideal race frame: stiffness, efficiency, and low weight. For the A10, Ridley has apparently invested in some quality infrastructure in order to work with 7005, which is stronger but can be more difficult to use than 6061, because its weight and strength lets them hydroform it into triple-butted tubes. The A10's frame is lightweight metal shaped with almost the same freedom that Ridley has with its carbon designs, including internally routed cables. Aluminum can be harsh, though, which is one reason for the rush to carbon over the past decade. To address this, and thanks in part to its unprecedented tube shaping abilities, Ridley flattens out the thin seatstays for some vertical compliance and pops a 24t carbon fork into the front end. Both additions serve to eat up road noise and smooth the ride without sacrificing the efficiency of the chainstays, the bottom bracket, or the tapered head tube. The drivetrain comprises a blend of Shimano bits, centering around the new 105. Completely redesigned for 2015, Shimano's workhorse has joined the ranks of 11-speed groups. The crankset is Shimano's FC-RS500, the wheels are the venerable Fulcrum Racing Sports, and the tires are the comfortable yet efficient 25-millimeter Continental Ultra Sport II. Peripherals from 4ZA round out the kit with some well-matched styling. The 2015 Ridley Fenix A10 Complete Road Bike is available in six sizes ranging from XX...

RDO Carbon Rigid Fork Atomic Blue, 1.5 Taper

Mountain bikers are quickly learning that traditional quick-release skewers are better suited for barbequing than holding your front wheel on the bike. The same can be said for 1-1/8in head tube standards; they're great if you plan on riding rail trails, but if you're a mountain ripper and seek ride-enhancing strength without a weight penalty, a tapered headtube is the way to go. Niner recognized this, so instead of sticking to industry norms, they only offer the no-compromise RDO Fork with a tapered steerer and a 15mm thru-axle. If you've ridden carbon 29er forks, you know the massive torsional load disc brakes and large wheels place on them, along with their propensity to flex when you grab a handful front brake. This causes noticeable wheel deflection, which allows your line to aimlessly wander. It's not exactly ideal when you're threading the singletrack needle. Suspension forks have received the benefit of thru-axles, while their rigid siblings were neglected in the background. But not anymore, as Niner has stepped up the rigid game by adding a 15mm Rock Shox Maxle to their flagship rigid. Up top, Niner developed a tapered carbon steerer tube. Using their monocoque design and lay-up expertise, the oversized steerer tube seamlessly integrates with the lowers. This creates a transition free of stress-prone bonds, as opposed to three-piece forks. Niner dedicated extensive resources to optimizing the fork legs' weave to take full advantage of the damping characteristics of carbon. Impact energy is dispersed throughout the entire structure, suppressing trail vibrations without compromising steering precision. The RDO has a 470mm axle to crown length. For comparison's sake, an 80mm Reba has roughly a 490mm axle to crown length. Factor in 20 percent sag and the Axle to crown is about 474mm. The RDO keeps your geometry in nearly the same place as an 80mm suspension fork. A 45mm offset provides excellent tracking and responsive turn in. The RDO can fit up to a 180mm ...

Fatbar Lite Carbon Black, 10mm Rise

It might seem a bit of a stretch that world-renowned motocross component manufacturer Renthal stepped onto the mountain bike scene only a few years ago and already claims to have engineered a superlight trail-ready carbon fiber handlebar. That is, until you realize that the UK-based company not only has six mountain bike world championships under its belt, it's invested heavily into carbon fiber technology, understanding the importance of the material to the future of both mountain biking and motocross. With all that in mind, we present the Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon, the company's take on a trail-ready carbon fiber that we think hits the bull's-eye. Entering the world of carbon, Renthal put enormous resources into the research and refinement of the bars to ensure it would get it right the first time. Foremost, not unlike the standard DH-ready alloy Fatbar, the Fatbar Carbon Lite strikes that ergonomic sweetspot that so many bars come close to hitting but don't. Coming in at an amazing 180 grams for a 740mm-wide bar, its seven-degree backsweep and five-degree upsweep are just about perfect and take zero time to get used to. The bar is made of a unidirectional carbon fiber, chosen for its integrity and tunability, allowing engineers to dial in the right amount of flex to mitigate vibration and allow greater control, without sacrificing the stiffness or strength that is vital to an XC-, AM-, or DH-worthy handlebar -- so worthy, in fact, that the bar handily passes even the most rigorous of impact tests, like the EN BMX drop test, and many others. The Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon is 740mm wide and comes in four different levels of rise: 10mm, 20mm, 30mm, and 40mm. It weighs approximately 180 grams, give or take a few, depending on which you choose. The bar has a seven-degree backsweep and a five-degree upsweep, and comes in one finish.

If you're being all green and responsible with the resources you consume from Mother Earth by riding your bicycle everywhere, why not kick it up a notch by strapping on some panniers made of materials we've already borrowed from her? Former billboards and banner ads join recycled nylon and PETE fabrics to make Green Guru's Carbon Cooler Pannier, minimizing your footprint while you're minimizing your footprint. The Carbon Cooler pannier pulls off some cool tricks while it's at it, too. For one, it's insulated to keep food or liquids cold en route, even on hot days. It's also entirely waterproof when closed, and there are reflective materials around the outside to heighten visibility in low-light situations. Finally, when not in use, it collapses flat, but just in case you want to take it along, there's an adjustable shoulder strap included. Hard to argue with all that practicality and greenness, right? Constructed from recycled billboard material; actual prints will vary.

Fatbar Lite Carbon Black, 40mm Rise

It might seem a bit of a stretch that world-renowned motocross component manufacturer Renthal stepped onto the mountain bike scene only a few years ago and already claims to have engineered a superlight trail-ready carbon fiber handlebar. That is, until you realize that the UK-based company not only has six mountain bike world championships under its belt, it's invested heavily into carbon fiber technology, understanding the importance of the material to the future of both mountain biking and motocross. With all that in mind, we present the Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon, the company's take on a trail-ready carbon fiber that we think hits the bull's-eye. Entering the world of carbon, Renthal put enormous resources into the research and refinement of the bars to ensure it would get it right the first time. Foremost, not unlike the standard DH-ready alloy Fatbar, the Fatbar Carbon Lite strikes that ergonomic sweetspot that so many bars come close to hitting but don't. Coming in at an amazing 180 grams for a 740mm-wide bar, its seven-degree backsweep and five-degree upsweep are just about perfect and take zero time to get used to. The bar is made of a unidirectional carbon fiber, chosen for its integrity and tunability, allowing engineers to dial in the right amount of flex to mitigate vibration and allow greater control, without sacrificing the stiffness or strength that is vital to an XC-, AM-, or DH-worthy handlebar -- so worthy, in fact, that the bar handily passes even the most rigorous of impact tests, like the EN BMX drop test, and many others. The Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon is 740mm wide and comes in four different levels of rise: 10mm, 20mm, 30mm, and 40mm. It weighs approximately 180 grams, give or take a few, depending on which you choose. The bar has a seven-degree backsweep and a five-degree upsweep, and comes in one finish.

RDO Carbon Rigid Fork Blaze Yellow, 1.5 Taper

Mountain bikers are quickly learning that traditional quick-release skewers are better suited for barbequing than holding your front wheel on the bike. The same can be said for 1-1/8in head tube standards; they're great if you plan on riding rail trails, but if you're a mountain ripper and seek ride-enhancing strength without a weight penalty, a tapered headtube is the way to go. Niner recognized this, so instead of sticking to industry norms, they only offer the no-compromise RDO Fork with a tapered steerer and a 15mm thru-axle. If you've ridden carbon 29er forks, you know the massive torsional load disc brakes and large wheels place on them, along with their propensity to flex when you grab a handful front brake. This causes noticeable wheel deflection, which allows your line to aimlessly wander. It's not exactly ideal when you're threading the singletrack needle. Suspension forks have received the benefit of thru-axles, while their rigid siblings were neglected in the background. But not anymore, as Niner has stepped up the rigid game by adding a 15mm Rock Shox Maxle to their flagship rigid. Up top, Niner developed a tapered carbon steerer tube. Using their monocoque design and lay-up expertise, the oversized steerer tube seamlessly integrates with the lowers. This creates a transition free of stress-prone bonds, as opposed to three-piece forks. Niner dedicated extensive resources to optimizing the fork legs' weave to take full advantage of the damping characteristics of carbon. Impact energy is dispersed throughout the entire structure, suppressing trail vibrations without compromising steering precision. The RDO has a 470mm axle to crown length. For comparison's sake, an 80mm Reba has roughly a 490mm axle to crown length. Factor in 20 percent sag and the Axle to crown is about 474mm. The RDO keeps your geometry in nearly the same place as an 80mm suspension fork. A 45mm offset provides excellent tracking and responsive turn in. The RDO can fit up to a 180mm ...
