Just a few more random things we saw at the 2017 Sea Otter Classic:
The Bernard Kerr limited edition 27.5 wheelset from Reynolds is designed for heavy-duty downhill and enduro riding. An asymmetric carbon rim allows for increased spoke tension for better ride quality and durability. This wheelset also features a 32 mm hookless rim and Industry Nine hubs. Price: $2,700
Kenda released two new tires at the Sea Otter Classic this year, both designed for gravity riding and downhill racing. The Hellkat Pro and Helldiver Pro feature an Advanced Gravity Casing to help prevent gashes and punctures. These tubless-ready tires are available now in 27.5 x 2.4 and will set you back $79.95 for the Hellkat and $84.95 for the Helldiver.
Gore Rescue B Jacket
Gore has a new rain jacket coming out this fall, the Rescue B. It is a higher end model of the currently-available Rescue A jacket. Similar to many Gore products, the B jacket is lightweight, compacts down into a pocket for easy storage and is water-resistant. The hood is designed to go under a helmet and has reflective striping. This Rescue B uses the lightest 3-layer Gore-Tex material available. Price: $280.00
Kona Grips and Pedals
Kona will be launching new pedals and grips in approximately 2 months. More info on these as soon as we get some in-house and put them through the paces.
Delicious new Clif bar alert! Bananas, peanut butter, dark chocolate and peanuts. Oh my glob, it is so good. It’s like a peanut butter-banana sammich but for your jersey pocket.
