Race Face Next SL G4 cranksetIt's the next generation of the popular Race Face Next SL crankset.

Building on the lightest, most versatile production carbon crankset on the planet, the Race Face Next SL G4 couples Race Face CINCH compatibility with an elegant arm profile that seamlessly integrates the crank arm with the new Next Direct Mount composite chainring. G4 is lighter weight (430g – 32T Direct Mount) with improved lateral chainring stiffness; a critical advantage when the chain is under tension at extreme angles, like those resulting from a 1x system setup.

FEATURES:

  • Hollow carbon crank arms for maximum weight savings
  • Refined crank arm design integrates seamlessly with the composite direct mount chainring
  • 30mm spline interface CNC’d from commercialized super alloy, 20% stronger than 7050 aluminum
  • Removable spider offers the ability to convert between existing chainring standards while remaining flexible to future developments

Available in 170mm and 175mm lengths - MSRP is $549.99.

 

2016 Kona Hei Hei Trail seriesThe popular Kona Hei Hei has seen a complete overhaul for 2016.

A new frame design with Kona's new Fuse Independent Suspension—a clean, simple design that eliminates a pivot at the chainstay seatstay junction to create a lighter, stiffer ride feel.

The Hei Hei DL Trail lineup still has the super light race frame, but it's specifically oriented towards committed cross-country riders who want a little more diversity out of their ride. With 120mm of front suspension, 100mm of rear suspension, 29" wheels, and a component package that's more trail than race.

2016 Kona Hei Hei DL Trail (we have sizes S, M, L in stock):

  • Frame Material: Kona Race Light 6061 Aluminum Butted
  • Wheels: Stan’s ZTR Rapid 25 rims
  • Fork: New Fox 34 FLOAT performance fork
  • Shock: Fox Float Performance
  • Crankset: RaceFace Æffect cinch cranks
  • Drivetrain: New Shimano XT 1 x 11sp transmission
  • Brakes: Shimano XT
  • Tires: Maxxis Ardent EXO TR 29x2.25"/IKON EXO TR 29x2.2"

Juliana Joplin 2 mountain bike for women at The Path Bike ShopFor the ladies, the latest from Juliana Bicycles.

It's the same great frame as the new 2016 Santa Cruz Tallboy 3, with a parts spec geared towards a woman's fit. The new Juliana Joplin gives you the option of running either 29er or 27.5+ wheels. If you’re looking for quick acceleration and a nimble feel, go 29er. If you’re wanting extra traction and a more forgiving ride over roots and babyhead rocks, go 27.5+. It’s your choice.

This trail bike does it all - it's a cross country racer, a rowdy trail bike, and an overall fun ride everywhere you take it.

Shown here is the Juliana Joplin CC with X01 build kit, MSRP is $6499.

  • Fox 34 Float Performance Elite Fork
  • SRAM X01 Derailleur
  • SRAM Level TLM w/180mm Avid Centerline Rotors Brakes
  • Race Face Turbine; 30t Cranks

The CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as the C-level frames, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allows for less material use overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame.

Santa Cruz Tallboy 3CC with XX1 build kitIt's been a classic, and now its even better.

Introducing the new Santa Cruz Tallboy 3, even more capable and versatile than it's predecessor. 29er or 27.5+? It's your call. A flip chip on the upper link, combined with either a 130mm fork (for 27+) or 120mm fork (for 29-inch), ensures geometry remains consistent across a vast range of build kits and sizes, from S to XXL.

A 68 degree head angle and 110mm of VPP travel pumps up the original Tallboy’s playful character. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and brings the new Tallboy bang up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz lineup of bikes.

2016 Santa Cruz Tallboy 3Currently in stock, we have the Santa Cruz Tallboy 3CC with XX1 build kit in sizes small and large. MSRP is $7799.

Bell Super 2R MIPS-Equipped MTB helmet limited edition Star WarsAre you a Star Wars fan?

The ultra versatile Bell Super 2R MIPS-Equipped MTB helmet is a full-face helmet with a chin bar that can be removed to create a half shell helmet. This helmet bridges the gap between a half shell helmet and a dedicated full face helmet, giving riders the option to have greater coverage but without needing to carry two separate helmets.

Bell's Multi-Directional Impact Protection System takes the protection a step further, providing an extra layer of protection inside the helmet that rotates in order to potentially slow or reduce the amount of energy transferred to or from the head on impact.

Now available in limited edition Star Wars Boba Fett and Stormtrooper models, while supplies last! In sizes S, M, L, MSRP is $240.
