The latest from Lezyne, the Daahub and custom printed sports bottles

CYCLE SHOW 2010 PREVIEW: Upgrade, Wisper and Wildoo

Reynolds, Lezyne, DMR and Kinesis will be bringing their 2011 lines to Earls Court. Every wheel in the Reynolds range has been updated, with the MTB range attracting particular attention, not least with the new XC race wheelset, featuring a full unidirectional carbon rim, a carbon hub centre, straight pull spokes and convertible 10/15/20mm hub. Reynolds’ All Mountain version will also be on hand.

Lezyne’s on-bike inflation solution – the Road Drive CFH – includes a CO2 and pump combine with Flex-Hose technology. The highest pressure version can reach 160 psi, making it ideal for road tyres, with two other versions available (the Pressure Drive CFH and Alloy Drive CFH). All three will retail for £54.99, with pump, hose, 16g cartridge and frame mount.

DMR will have new lines including the Bolt and the Omen frames. The former is designed to ride like a DMR hardtail with suspension, built with tough 4130 CroMo tubes. The Omen is Sidekick-inspired and developed by elite UCI four-cross racer Duncan Ferris as the latest DMR race frame. Kenesis’ Crosslight Csix2 carbon promises to be a key too. Upgrade will be over at stand E28.

Wisper is set to bring its light, high performance e-bike converson kit – the DaaHub – to booth E3 at Earls Court. Marking the device’s UK debut, the DaaHub is aimed at cycling and e-bike enthusiasts who want a top of the range high performance bike. Promising to quickly and easily transform existing road, mountain or even racing bikes into an electric version, the DaaHub ambitiously promises to create a whole new genre of cycling.

Two years in development using the expertise of the Wisper brand, the DaaHub also appeared at EuroBike.

Exhibiting on stand C31, Wildoo is showing off much of its product line-up including the Token and Jet Black ranges. Pletscher is also set to feature, as is Wildoo’s EU-Bottle custom printed sports bottles.

Private label bicycle frames, parts and accessories, will be showcased alongside Wildoo’s recently launched custom cycle clothing range.
