Yet more product previews from the trade-only show based in Northamptonshire

Core Bike previews: Silverfish, Windwave, Storck

Core will provide the first opportunity for Silverfish to show off Easton Cycling products, including the newly expanded road, CX and MTB wheel ranges, featuring everything from carbon fibre MTB rims to lightweight climbers, hoops and disc brakes.

Core is also your chance to get up close and personal with three fresh models from Colorado’s Yeti Cycles: The 4” ASRc, Swtich Infinity equipped SB5c and EWS Gold medal winning SB6c bike models. Released this autumn, the Switch Infinity equipped SB5c and SB6c bikes are designed around a dual rail system, an evolution of the Switch suspension platform giving riders either 5” or 6” of rear wheel travel.

Ritte Cycles was shown at 2014’s Core Bike as a two bike range (the carbon road frames Bosberg and Vlaanderen). Now it is up to six models including the Crossberg CX frame, an alloy track frame, carbon TT bike (the 1919) and the stainless steel Snob.

Core is also chance to see the latest from e*thirteen, including the EX cog.

BBB’s universal pouch, the Guardian, fits a wide variety of smartphones – up to 140mm x 70mm – handily including the new iPhone which is 138.1mm x 67mm (now you know). The pouch offers full touch functionality and is of course water resistant for protection during rainy days.

The Guardian also protects from knocks and uses a rigid inner board for added stiffness and stability. Separate padding provides a tighter fit for smaller phones and should you be a maverick you can also mount it landscape, in addition to traditional portrait style. The angle is adjustable for optimal viewing or filming and it’s mountable on the stem of handlebar.

While the following is of limited interest to dealers, it doesn’t hurt to know that BBB also offers a riding app – the BikeBoard – with a customisable layout (you can arrange through a drag and drop feature), GPS tracking with map view, workout history with ride details, direct Strava upload, native iOS feel and a multiple bike feature. Find out more about BBB’s offering and those of the rest of Windwave’s brand portfolio at Core Bike. 

Storck will be celebrating the company’s 20th anniversary at Core with a selection of limited edition anniversary models. The Visioner CSL, Aerfast, Aernario Disc and Aero2 will be available in a 20th anniversary paint job with an exclusive accessories bundle for their customers.

New for 2015 are the likes of the Aerfast and TIX, the former using the ‘ground parallel aerodynamics’ design philosophy from the Aernario range and using it for an ultra-aero road bike. The TIX, meanwhile, stands for ‘This Is Cross’ and is a lightweight ‘crosser’ designed with Thu axel disc brakes and directional dependent stiffness.

Markus Storck will also be return to Core for the second year after the show made such an impact last year. He said: “Nowhere else in the world do you find a trade show like this, a show where you can spend quality time with quality people, It’s fantastic.”

Markus Storck will be offering his insights into the brand, its development, technology and the newest models in the range. Find Storck upstairs in the Stowe room.
