More previews of the bikes and paraphenalia you can expect to see at Core

CORE BIKE GUIDE: Buff, Citrus-Lime, 2pure, One Industries

There’s going to be plenty for you to get your teeth into at Whittlebury Hall. Without further ado, let’s get into our next preview…


Citrus-Lime has a Cloud reporting tool up its sleeve. It has been developed from the ground up and will be the first of Citrus-Lime’s new Cloud based modules. The ecommerce expert has focused on what information retailers need to make good managerial decisions and it is currently in use at a limited number of sites and will be beta tested before launch at Core.

The New Year will also bring a completely revamped Citrus-Lime website which will doubtless be shown off at the show too. To find out all about those, Click & Collect and all the other ecommerce options Citrus-Lime provides, head to their stand at Core. We’re assured you might walk out with some locally sourced, fair trade, organic Citrus-Lime branded tea and coffee too.

There’ll be a Lizard Skins glove giveaway in the build up to Core Bike while at the show itself bike dealers will find the best selling bar tape from DSP available in four new colours as well as new overshoes and gloves.
POC’s 2015 Raceday collection will debut and there will be details on a new stockist plan for Pedro’s tool range. Niterider’s new twin-laser-sporting Sentinel will debut in its 25th year and also watch out for Feedback Sports’ new workstand.

For the first time Buff will be launching a hats collection, for the autumn-winter 2015-2016 season, covering the sport and lifestyle sectors and using high tech fabrics. There’s plenty of choice with over 160 models across the collection. For the new range, Buff is using the same materials it’s used on its neck accessories for years but new tech is being employed like ultrasonic seamless welding to increase comfort and precise laser cutting for enhanced breathability and comfort. Some models have reflectivity – speak to the team at Core to find out more.
