SQlab ergonomic bike saddles at The Path Bike ShopOur bike fit staff is excited about these new ergonomic bike saddles from SQlab being in stock here at The Path.

The SQLlab saddles feature an extended nose which is approximately 25 mm longer than most traditional saddles. This longer saddle nose allows the rider to utilize the saddle better for increased control while steering the bike in technical situations and offers a better platform for climbing steep sections of trail. The saddle nose is also lowered, in order to help distribute bodyweight better.

The spine-friendly "active" movement of the 611 saddles provide increased lateral and rearward flexibility which supports more active riders with a better connection to the bike and decreased pressure on the spine and joints. 

We have SQlab 611 active and 611 race models in both 140mm and 150mm widths, prices range from $119-$169.

 

SRAM Guide RS and Guide RSC hydraulic disc brakes at The Path Bike Shop in Tustin, CAThe SRAM Guide family of brakes is a new design from the ground up, to create a combination of braking reliability and control. With their new SwingLink™ technology  SRAM was able to tune how fast the pistons in the brake lever advance during certain times of the brake lever stroke. This results in less deadband (i.e., the time between when the brake lever is pulled and the brake engages) while maintaining a smooth modulation.

The new lever assembly has a piggyback reservoir to create better performance as well as better management over the brake fluid. The lever was also shortened for a more ergonomic shape for one-finger braking. They feature a lever reach adjust as well as pad-contact adjust.

The SRAM Guide RS (pictured, upper) MSRP is $149 per brake, without rotors.

The SRAM Guide RSC (pictured, lower) MSRP is $199 per brake, without rotors.

 

DVO Emerald Inverted 26er DH Suspension Fork at The Path Bike ShopSuper HOT new arrival, the DVO Emerald Inverted 26er Downhill suspension fork. This downhill fork is sure to please the eye of the beholder and everyone surrounding them!

DVO Suspension is new to the market of suspension but their offering is far from basic. They went straight for the high-end downhill suspension market, and they did it well. This fork is loaded with adjustments to suit any terrain you're riding on.

Starting with the top right leg, you will see the rebound knob sporting 38 clicks of adjustment. At the bottom of the right leg sits two knobs: one controlling high speed compression and the other for low speed. Moving to the top left leg, there is a cap for air pressure adjustments and also a knob that controls what's called OTT (or Off The Top). This knob allows the rider to externally tune the negative spring to increase or decrease plushness when needed. 

This 26-inch version weighs in at exactly 3500 grams. MSRP is $2,239.

 

 Santa Cruz Palmdale MTB grips and ODI AG-1 Aaron Gwin signature lock-on grips at The Path Bike Shop in Tustin, CATwo hot new designs of lock-on mountain bike grips!

The Santa Cruz Palmdale MTB grips combine a single lock-ring design with the staying power of dual lock-ring.

A taper-lock core uses an internal sleeve that narrows towards the last portion of the grip, which clamps onto the end of the bar to eliminate any twisting. There's a flared closed end for comfort and an intuitive feel for the bar end, a long grip length for plenty of room to reposition your hand position when needed, and a moto-knurl pattern for a great grip and feel in all riding conditions. MSRP is $18 per pair.

The new AG-1 Aaron Gwin Signature Lock-On grip from ODI Grips was developed by ODI in collaboration with World Cup DH racer Aaron Gwin.

These grips have a ultra narrow, knurled surface similar to the ODI Ruffian. A big difference: the AG-1 has replaced the traditional outer lockring and replaced it with an integrated plastic end cap, which is covered by the rubber portion of the grip. This extends the real estate for your hands by 1/4", without making an overall longer length grip. These grips come with one lock on clamp already in place, making installation super easy by just sliding on the grip on and tightening one hex head bolt. MSRP is $30 per pair.
