Vaaru titanium joins the line up, while Hotlines announce retail presentations

Core Bike Live: Vaaru, Kona and Kinesis launch previews

Vaaru Cycles, a titanium specialist from West Sussex, will join the Core Bike Live line up, while the debut event will be a UK dealer’s first chance to try out Kona and Hotlines 2016 bike catalogues.

Vaaru’s frame packages start from £1,699 at retail, with full build options to choose from, or custom geometry, if required. Vaaru also excels in bespoke finishing, which ranges from custom anodising, paintwork, bead blasting, mirror polishing or even custom saddles decorated in the finest leather with embroidery to match your build. 

Meanwhile, Kinesis will debut a new carbon eyeletted fork with tapered steerer as part of its 5t Disc CX frameset.

Fresh from a first showing in Austria, Kona will be showing their complete 2016 range, including the all new 120mm Hei Hei trail – an uber capable full suspension XC bike that can handle any terrain. Check out the below video for more from Kona. 

Hotlines has scheduled a number of brand presentations to go with its first showing of 2016 Ghost, Lapierre, Nukeproof, NS and Ragley bikes.

The daily timetable is as follows: 

Ghost 10:30 

Lapierre 11:30

Nukeproof 13:30 

NS bikes 14:30 

Ragley 15:30
