Further Core Bike snippets are emerging as the show draws closer, including what Saddleback will be bringing along, including the new Castelli embrocation range, new saddle models from Astute, an ever growing range of tools and pumps from Silca and the full range of Sidi shoes. Special signed Sidi shoes will be on display that have been worn to victory in some of the world’s biggest races. Enve will be showing several new products including the new S.E.S 7.8 wheelset, Enve’s fastest ever wheel and the brand new CX disc wheels and fork. Additionally ROTOR will be on show for the first time ever at Core Bike.

Enve’s brand new CX disc wheels and perfect partner, the CX disc fork are both designed to offer top performance across the gritty, muddy, stone-bedeviled courses of the cyclocross world.

For the CX wheels, Enve’s engineers have taken feedback from pro athletes to create a disc-specific rim that rolls faster and has a more forgiving ride than the competition. The tyre bed is also optimised with a durable woven carbon surface to protect against the regular tub installations and removals that come with riding ’cross.

The CX disc fork is also designed for comfort and can accommodate a 45mm tyre using a 700c wheel. The thru-axle set-up means less rotor rub and fewer caliper adjustments in addition to better tracking and braking performance up front. It’s the ultimate combination of light weight, stiffness, damping and durability.

Saddleback’s recent signing ROTOR will be launching at Core, with the distributor exclusively bringing the brand to the trade from January 1st 2016. There will be a comprehensive line-up of ROTOR components on show including Q-Rings, QXL, 3D+ cranksets, INpower, a selection of bottom brackets and plenty more to be announced soon.

Core Bike 2016 will run from Sunday January 31st to Wednesday February 3rd 2016 at Whittlebury Hall.

The opening times are:

  • Sunday 31st Jan 09.00 – 17.30
  • Monday 1st Feb 09.00 – 17.30
  • Tuesday 2nd Feb 09.00 – 17.30
  • Wednesday 3rd Feb 09.00 – 14.00
