New Juliana Wilder

Juliana Bicycles have announced the new Wilder with 100mm rear travel and 120 travel up front.  A “superlight” bike intended for XC and long distance riding/racing. (NOTE. We do not why there isnt a 115mm XC race version in line with the new Santa Cruz Blur)

Click here for more information

“Born from Juliana’s cross-country racing heritage, Wilder takes us to a whole new level of lightweight speed and endurance. The 115mm of new SuperlightTM suspension travel is matched to a super efficient carbon layup to create the lightest full-suspension bike in our line-up. Saving weight means little without retaining an appropriate level of stiffness and responsiveness too. So we’ve taken all the acceleration and out-of-the-saddle sprint qualities of a carbon XC race rocket and fused them with a rear-end that still rails corners like a hardcore trail bike.”

New Santa Cruz Blur

This will come as no surprise to some people especially as the new blur was briefly seen in the last world cup xc race.  But Santa Cruz have made the blur even lighter.  The will be an XC race version with 115mm front travel and a trail version with 120mm front travel aimed at more endurance style riding/racing. Both bikes have 100mm rear travel.

New Hope XCR Brakes

New lightweight xc/trail brakes from Hope Tech.

Contact us to reserve a pair.  Limited quantities so best be quick!! 🙂

“When we stopped production of our XC orientated Race line of brakes we always planned to replace it with something better. With the recent resurgence in shorter travel trail/XC bikes now is the perfect time to announce the new XCR brake from Hope, lighter, more powerful, better ergonomics, lighter lever feel than anything we have offered before. It’s a lightweight brake with no compromises whether you’re racing or trail riding.

The minimal, radially configured, master cylinder maintains our simple bleeding process with its conventional reservoir yet still offers reach adjustment and a new hinged handlebar clamp for reduced weight and easy installation. New lever bushes provide reduced friction and super light lever action all finished with a carbon lever blade, with the brake only available in a silver anodised finish.

The brake is paired with a special edition version of our X2 caliper featuring aluminium backplate pads and a sleek, low profile crimped connector. A conventional olive is retained at the lever end to allow for easy hose shortening.”

Lightweight Minimalist design
Reduced lever friction for lighter feel
