Bell Super 2R MIPS helmetNew colors for the popular Bell Super 2R, plus a new women's model!

The ultra versatile Bell Super 2R is a full-face helmet with a chin bar that can be removed to create a half shell helmet. This ultra versatile 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. Finally! A half shell helmet for climbs and trail riding, with a full face option for the DH portion of the ride.

The Bell Super 2R MIPS-Equipped MTB helmet (Bell's Multi-Directional Impact Protection System) takes it 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. Shown here are two new colors: matte black/blue aggression and matte kryptonite. MSRP is $220.

Bell Super 2 MIPS Women's Joyride helmet

All Bell helmets are safety certified, with additional features like breakaway screws and camera mount, adjustable visor, and overbrow ventilation.

2016 Kona Honzo 29er bike and frameKona has taken one of our favorite bikes, the Honzo, and made some cool new options.

We didn't think it was possible...improve the already great Kona Honzo 29er hardtail??? The longtime favorite Kona Honzo AL is still around, but here are some intriguing new takes on the classic.

The 2016 Kona Honzo AL/DL is a brand new model offered this year. Kona has taken the aggressive and progressive geometry of its cromoly cousin (the Honzo AL) and smashes singletrack with a cherry-picked parts package on a perfectly crafted alloy frame.

Kona compares this bike as a "Process 111 without the rear travel". They've added an increased reach to match the sizing used on the Kona Process bikes, and a press fit 92 BB and 12x148 axle for maximum tire clearance. MSRP is $2199.

As they say, steel is real...and Kona always knows how to keep it real. Do your own custom build with the 2016 Kona Honzo SL steel hardtail frame with SRAM maxle. This is another model that Kona compared to the Process line. It's got an increased reach to match the sizing on the Process bikes, a slack 68-degree head tube angle, low bottom bracket and short chainstays, plus a super-low top tube for great standover. MSRP is $525.

MSW XLA-40 Air CartridgeThese C02 cartridges are big on air but light on weight.

The MSW XLA-40 Air Cartridge is an extra-large inflation canister. This 40-gram air canister is the equivalent in volume to two standard 20-gram cartridges with half the weight, plus you'll save some valuable pack space.

Fits 3/8" threaded inflators with 5mm depth from pin to edge of threading.

  • Fills one 26 x 4” tire on an 85mm rim to approximately 9 PSI
  • Fills one 29 x 2.3” tire to approximately 30 PSI
  • Fills one 700c x 32mm tire to approximately 80 PSI

Shimano 25th SPD Anniversary limited edition blue pedalsShimano celebrates 25 years of SPD.

2016 Pivot Mach 429 TrailHere's the versatile 29er trail bike that does everything well.

The 2016 Pivot Mach 429 Trail (XTR/XT Pro 1x build kit pictured) gets a few changes from the standard Mach 429: this Trail version gets a slacker head angle, more travel, and Boost spacing front and rear. The bike's 116mm of rear suspension travel is still handled by a dw-link design, but the upper link has been redesigned with Pivot’s new mid-travel trail linkage design in a more compact, lighter package, made specifically for trail riding.

Rear end stiffness has been increased, and the 12x148 and 15x110 spacing allows riders to run either 27.5+ wheels or beefed up 29ers if they want without any issues either way. A 120 or 130mm fork is suggested; the 130mm length fork puts the head angle at 67.5°
