BIKES

KONA Kona's Op­er­a­tor DL is built around an all-new butted alu­minum frame with 27.5” wheels. The wildly suc­cess­ful Op­er­a­tor model is also avail­able at re­duced pric­ing for 2017.

The Honzo CR Trail DL is a 29” hard­tail with ag­gres­sive trail ge­om­e­try, a car­bon frame, a drop­per post and wider/stiffer Boost rear end. The Honzo CR Trail hard­tail fea­tures an as­sertive stance and a nim­ble-han­dling car­bon frame.

The Honzo CR Race of­fers a lighter-weight car­bon frame that has a more ag­gres­sive ge­om­e­try, shorter chain­stays that de­liver more power, a stiffer front end with 120mm of con­trolled travel and drop­per-post rout­ing.

For the brand-new Big Honzo DL, Kona took the ag­gres­sive, dy­namic ge­om­e­try of the trail-happy Honzo and gave it a 27.5”+-wheel size for more trac­tion, con­trol and con­fi­dence.

Kona has upped the stiff­ness and dropped the weight over its alu­minum mod­els by giv­ing the Hei Hei Supreme a lighter full-car­bon frame that fea­tures trail-tested car­bon Fuse Independent Sus­pen­sion that elim­i­nates a pivot at the chain­stay/seat­stay junc­tion.

The Hei Hei DL comes with an all-new car­bon frame, Kona's Fuse Independent Sus­pen­sion, Boost spac­ing and a drop­per post. Hei Hei Race DL fea­tures an all-new 1,800g (size M) World-Cup-proven car­bon frame.

The new all-car­bon Hei Hei Trail DL fea­tures Fuse Independent Sus­pen­sion de­sign, tweaked ge­om­e­try, 27.5” wheels and 140mm of travel.

The Hei Hei Trail Supreme fea­tures the all-new SRAM Ea­gle XX1 along with the pedal-ef­fi­cient Fuse car­bon rear end with 140mm of sus­pen­sion, 27.5” wheels and an XS-size op­tion.

The Big Kahuna now comes with a 27.5”+ tire and a Reynolds chro­moly frame.

Mer­ckx Mer­ckx has ex­panded its bike line for 2017, ad­ding a Per­for­mance and En­durance of­fer­ing. The EM525 is of­fered in a Per­for­mance ge­om­e­try and En­durance ge­om­e­try. Both ge­ome­tries come in seven sizes.

Also new for 2017 is the ad­di­tion of op­tional disc brakes on most mod­els, in­clud­ing the EM525, SanRemo76, Mourenx69, Sal­lanches64, Mi­lano72, Stras­bourg71 and Eeklo70.

The Pe­tit Enghien 61 is a new youth-ori­ented race bike with a full Shi­mano Sora groupset and two colour op­tions.

BMC The new BMC Road­ma­chine is avail­able in both car­bon and al­loy con­struc­tion with thru-axle and disc brakes. The in­te­grated cock­pit hides ca­bles and the pro­pri­etary stem comes in five lengths rang­ing from 90mm to 130mm. BMC's new “D” com­pli­ance post is af­fixed us­ing an in­te­grated clamp­ing sys­tem, and a com­pact rear tri­an­gle pro­vides in­creased per­for­mance and road­noise re­duc­tion.

The re­designed Timema­chine of­fers a P2P V-Cock­pit that is specif­i­cally de­signed for triath­letes, al­low­ing the rider to sit for­ward and up com­pared to a tra­di­tional time-trial bike. The Timema­chine is also avail­able with a tra­di­tional flat-cock­pit con­fig­u­ra­tion, pro­vid­ing a lower po­si­tion. The dual-mount seat­post has two mount­ing po­si­tions, al­low­ing for a to­tal of 124mm of pos­si­ble fore-aft ad­just­ment.

Scapin The Kal­i­bra is the first road-disc model of­fered by Scapin. Al­ready well re­ceived and hav­ing won the Cos­moBike Award for de­sign ex­cel­lence, the Kal­i­bra com­bines es­thet­ics and func­tional tech­nol­ogy to cre­ate a bike true to the char­ac­ter of the brand. Cus­tomiz­abil­ity is para­mount with the Kal­i­bra, com­ing in three stan­dard colours, five frame sizes, six build-kit op­tions and four sep­a­rate wheel op­tions, as well as avail­able cus­tom-paint schemes.

Spe­cial­ized The pop­u­lar Roubaix has un­der­gone a ma­jor up­date for 2017, in­clud­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of the all-new Fu­ture Shock that adds 20mm of travel above the head­tube, which acts to sus­pend the rider over the bike. This, along with the CG-R FACT car­bon seat­post, which is clamped 3.5” be­low the top­tube, al­lows for max­i­mum ease of han­dling over harsh con­di­tions. All disc-model frames use a 12x142mm thru-axle, and the new FACT 11r car­bon-disc fork uses a 12x100mm thru-axle to pro­vide in­creased stiff­ness and con­trol un­der heavy brak­ing.

The 2017 En­duro is avail­able in 29”- and 27.5”-wheel sizes, and the 29” bike can be con­verted to a 6Fat­tie, al­low­ing for the use of plus-size tires with 160mm of travel up front and 165mm of travel in the rear. The 27.5” bikes come with 170mm of travel. A slack­ened head­tube at 66° in­creases the con­trol of the En­duro, even on the gnarli­est of trails.

The Al­ibi brings tech­nol­ogy to the masses with solid tires that mean a punc­ture-less ride, and a gal­va­nized chain for main­te­nance that's a breeze. The clas­sic and step-thru de­signs and high rider bars add to the re­laxed ride.

The Fat­boy is avail­able with both car­bon and al­loy frames and a va­ri­ety of builds from winter racer to bike tour­ing. The M4 alu­minum frame pro­vides many rack-mount op­tions, while the FACT car­bon-frame con­struc­tion uses in­ter­nal cable rout­ing to keep things sim­ple and clean. The Fat­boy 24 and Fat­boy 20 bring the fun to shorter shred­ders.

Norco The new Ithaqua com­bines fat­bike ver­sa­til­ity with race-bike per­for­mance. The light­weight car­bon frame is com­pat­i­ble with 26x5.0” or 27.5x4.0” tires for in­cred­i­ble trac­tion and flota­tion through snow, sand and other vari­able ter­rain.

The Op­tic is a fast-pedal­ing trail bike that uses pro­gres­sive trail ge­om­e­try care­fully tuned across each frame size for op­ti­mal ride qual­ity, while A.R.T. sus­pen­sion de­liv­ers both ef­fi­cient climb­ing and lively, ca­pa­ble de­scend­ing. It is avail­able in your choice of 650B or 29” wheels.

Up­dated for 2017 with 140mm of travel, the Tor­rent is de­signed with long, low, slack ge­om­e­try, 40mm rims and 2.8” tires. The frame is made of cus­tom-formed 6061 X6 alu­minum with a dou­ble-butted tube.

The 100mm Re­volver full sus­pen­sion has a stiff, feath­erlight car­bon frame with racer-ap­proved Grav­ity Tune ge­om­e­try and A.R.T. sus­pen­sion and kine­mat­ics op­ti­mized for cross-coun­try racing.

Norco's kids' line fea­tures light­weight alu­minum frames, cus­tom ge­om­e­try and kid-spe­cific com­po­nents. In­creased stan­dover clear­ance and short chain­stays help smaller chil­dren to fit bikes with larger wheels, mak­ing it eas­ier for them to roll over bumpy ter­rain, while short stems and wide bars make them feel sta­ble.

Ghost The Ghost SL AMR X 29'er line has 150mm of front travel paired with 140mm of rear travel, ag­gres­sive an­gles and 29” wheels. The line uses Cane Creek Sig­na­ture sus­pen­sion, X-Yoke sus­pen­sion de­sign, in­te­grated cable rout­ing and 1x11 driv­e­trains.

The SL AMR X9 LC frame is con­structed of Ghost's light­weight car­bon. The sus­pen­sion is han­dled by a Fox 36 Float Per­for­mance Elite fork and a Cane Creek DB In­line Coil CS rear shock. The SL AMR 29'er is spec'ed with Race Face com­po­nents, Shi­mano XT 1x driv­e­train and Sch­walbe tires.

The PathRoit has 170mm of travel up front and 150mm of rear travel, and uses 27.5” wheels. The frame is con­structed of Ghost's ul­tra-light­weight car­bon. Sev­eral build op­tions use ei­ther full Fox sus­pen­sion or a Fox 36 Float fork cou­pled with a Cane Creek shock.

The new FR se­ries uses in­te­grated fea­tures that have been op­ti­mized for con­tem­po­rary driv­e­trains and com­po­nents, in­clud­ing a unique cable-management sys­tem that is com­pat­i­ble with ev­ery driv­e­train on the mar­ket. The FR fea­tures a BB386EVO bot­tom bracket, rim brake-equipped and disc brake-equipped ver­sions, and is avail­able in SRAM eTap, Shi­mano Ul­te­gra Di2, Ul­te­gra and 105 builds.

The all-new VR En­durance road bike is equipped with disc brakes and 12mm front and rear thru-axles, enough clear­ance for us­ing a va­ri­ety of tire widths, as well as sev­eral op­tional in­te­grated con­ve­nience fea­tures such as a pro­pri­etary fender-mount kit and a top­tube stor­age so­lu­tion.

Gi­ant Gi­ant's new TCR Disc range in­cludes three se­ries: TCR Ad­vanced SL Disc, TCR Ad­vanced Pro Disc and TCR Ad­vanced Disc. Each pur­pose-built frame is en­gi­neered with flat-mount disc-brake tech­nol­ogy for con­sis­tent brak­ing power in all con­di­tions. The new front (12x100mm) and rear (12x142mm) thru-axle set-ups pro­duce a race-tuned ride qual­ity, as well as with pre­ci­sion and steer­ing stiff­ness. The TCR Ad­vanced SL Disc and TCR Ad­vanced Pro Disc mod­els also come equipped with Gi­ant's SLR Disc WheelSys­tem and all-new Gavia SLR tube­less tires.

Gi­ant's all-new Trance is avail­able with an Ad­vanced-grade com­pos­ite or ALUXX SL alu­minum frame. Its up­dated Mae­stro sus­pen­sion fea­tures a trun­nion-mount shock with 140mm of super-smooth rear travel. That's paired with a plush 150mm fork, 27.5” wheels and mod­ern ge­om­e­try that's long and low.

Gi­ant e-bikes' SyncDrive mo­tor de­liv­ers smooth pedal­ing power that is son­i­cally tuned for quiet per­for­mance. The PedalPlus four-sen­sor tech­nol­ogy sys­tem pre­cisely mea­sures the amount of force a rider ap­plies to the ped­als so that the mo­tor de­liv­ers a seam­less power boost. The sys­tem uses speed and torque sen­sors along with mo­tor and pedal-ro­ta­tion sen­sors to pro­duce even power across the en­tire gear range.

The state-of-the-art Quick-E+ tran­sit bike is de­signed for the ur­ban dweller. With a top as­sisted speed of 32kph, Quick-E+ fea­tures an ALUXX SL alu­minum frame and a pow­er­ful Yamaha mo­tor that pro­duces 80Nm of torque with Gi­ant's Hy­brid Cycling Tech­nol­ogy.

The U500 comes in five colours with three bat­tery op­tions, in­clud­ing the 32 Amp Hour which of­fers a range of 125-150 kilo­me­tres of rid­ing.

Can­non­dale Can­non­dale's all-new Bad Habit Car­bon takes the spot-on trail man­ners of the Habit and su­per­charges both with 27+ wheels. The Asym­met­ric In­te­gra­tion (Ai) off­set driv­e­train de­liv­ers super-short chain­stays for su­pe­rior trac­tion and tons of clear­ance for full 3.0 tires. It fea­tures a light­weight Bal­lisTec car­bon SmartForm C1 swingarm and a super-light car­bon link.

The Su­perSix EVO Hi-Mod Disc fea­tures an 829g elite race chas­sis with disc brakes, while main­tain­ing all of the ride char­ac­ter­is­tics of one of the most ad­vanced, well-rounded race bikes ever made. Flat-mount brakes, thru-axles and in­ter­nal rout­ing on the frame and fork cre­ate a clean, stream­lined look.

The Su­perX cy­clocross fea­tures Can­non­dale's new pro­pri­etary OutFront steer­ing ge­om­e­try, which com­bines a slack head­tube an­gle with a cus­tom 55mm fork off­set, giv­ing ex­cep­tional sta­bil­ity and agility. Boast­ing short­est-in-class 422mm chain­stays for climb-win­ning trac­tion, Su­perX takes it one step fur­ther and in­cor­po­rates the Asym­met­ric In­te­gra­tion (Ai) driv­e­train that is shifted out six mil­lime­tres to ac­com­mo­date an evenly dished rear wheel with up to 40c tires and pro­vides a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in mud clear­ance.

The Moterra comes in three mod­els and is a true all-around trail e-moun­tain bike with 130mm of travel and the in­cred­i­ble grip of 27+ wheels. The Moterra LT comes in two mod­els and is an ag­gres­sive All-Moun­tain/En­duro e-moun­tain bike with 160mm of travel front and rear, 27.5x2.35” tires and ap­pro­pri­ately stout com­po­nent specs. At the heart of all Moterra mod­els is Can­non­dale's cus­tom Si mo­tor mount and Ai (Asym­met­ric In­te­gra­tion) chain­ring.

Scott Al­ready a proven win­ner at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Scott's Spark is avail­able in both 29”- and 27.5”-wheel stan­dards, as well as plus-size tire op­tions. The Spark RC and Contessa Spark RC con­tinue to have Scott's full-sus­pen­sion race plat­form, with 100mm of travel front and rear. The Spark RC is of­fered in both 29”- and 27.5”-wheel sizes. The bikes fea­ture 120mm of travel across the board. Scott has also in­cluded drop­per posts from brands such as Fox and Rock­Shox, or its own in-house Syn­cros 2.0 post, on nearly all of the Spark and Spark Plus mod­els.

Raleigh The Re­dux 1 is a ride-on-any­thing bike for the city. The 1x8-speed driv­e­train and me­chan­i­cal discs keep things sim­ple and re­li­able, and the Sch­walbe Big Ben 27.5x2.0” tires are ready to han­dle a va­ri­ety of road sur­faces.

The Super Course uses 4130 chro­moly and is built with Shi­mano Claris com­pact gear­ing to pro­vide re­li­able shift­ing. Cle­ment Strada LGG 700x28c tires are fast-rolling and ca­pa­ble, and the Brooks Cam­bium sad­dle and bar tape pro­vide plush con­tact points.

A Rock­Shox Re­con Sil­ver RL pro­vides 120mm of travel and is fixed to the frame via an al­loy-ta­pered steerer, 100x15mm thru-axle and 42mm off­set.

Trek The Madone uses seam­less in­te­gra­tion, an aero­dy­namic de­sign and Trek's IsoSpeed de­cou­pler to cre­ate a true racing ma­chine. The low-pro­file front end and in­te­grated cock­pit de­ters frontal drag. The IsoSpeed de­cou­pler will pro­vide re­lief on rough sur­faces, de­spite its race-ori­ented de­sign.

The Boone uses 600 Se­ries OCLV car­bon con­struc­tion and the in­cor­po­ra­tion of IsoSpeed tech­nol­ogy keeps the Boone light­weight and com­pli­ant. Disc op­tions in­clude front thru-axles to in­crease per­for­mance and stop­ping power, while purists can still find can­tilever mod­els.

For En­duro and ag­gres­sive trail rid­ing, the Rem­edy has 27.5” wheels, an ag­gres­sive ge­om­e­try with slacker an­gles and 150mm of travel. Boost 148/110 spac­ing adds to the stiff­ness and strength of the bike and al­lows for wider tires and shorter chain­stays.

The Do­mane SLR 6 Disc uses Trek's IsoSpeed de­cou­pler for rear-end com­pli­ance as well as for damp­en­ing of road noise through the fork and head­tube. With ex­cel­lent stiff­ness and power trans­fer, the Do­mane is still a high-per­former, claim­ing 30% more lat­eral stiff­ness than the com­pe­ti­tion. Caliper and disc-brake op­tions are avail­able through­out the line.

The Farley EX 9.8 com­bines the trac­tion and sta­bil­ity of fat tires with a ca­pa­ble full-sus­pen­sion frame for go-any­where ca­pa­bil­ity. OCLV Moun­tain car­bon-frame con­struc­tion keeps the bike light and the 27.5x4” wheels smooth out the ride and roll faster.

The new Stache 9.8 uses a 29+ plat­form and 120mm front travel to grip the trail. Boost 148/110 spac­ing means stronger wheels and more tire clear­ance with shorter stays, and the Stran­gle­hold dropout gives you the op­tion of run­ning the Stache with 29+, 27.5+ or 29'er wheels. The OCLV Moun­tain car­bon frame keeps things light, ef­fi­cient and tough.

A stiff bot­tom bracket en­hances lat­eral rigid­ity, while its low place­ment im­proves a rider's cen­ter of grav­ity. Re­laxed head an­gles and the long top­tube ge­om­e­try are bal­anced with a short stem for re­spon­sive han­dling. It also fea­tures up to 40c tire clear­ance, mud­guard and in­ter­nal drop­per-post op­tions.

The new Split-Pivot Django de­liv­ers power, speed and fi­nesse on the trail, with an op­ti­mal blend of 130mm front/120mm rear sus­pen­sion and sure-footed 29” wheels that en­hance trac­tion on wet, slip­pery sur­faces and de­liver ap­pre­ci­ated sta­bil­ity.

The all-new Devinci Kobain hard­tail uses a plus-size foot­print for su­pe­rior sta­bil­ity and trac­tion. The Op­ti­mum G04 (6066 T6) alu­minum frame fea­tures in­ter­nal cable rout­ing and uses front and back thru-axles.
