VISION 5D METRON HANDLEBARS
Vision Metron 5D handlebars mix aerodynamics and ergonomics to create a stiff, aero integrated bar and stem system. The AeroErgo flat-top riser central section follows the natural arc of the arms with a 10° forward bend accommodating the natural position of your arms for more comfort and easier breathing, while the wing-like shape of the bar top aids aerodynamics. Reinforced carbon-fibre construction gives a great strength-to-weight ratio, and the internal cable routing and guides that accommodate wiring for electronic shifting keep the bar clean. The handlebars have a compact 125mm drop, 80mm reach and weigh 395g (420mm). The SRP is $943.
The Salamander from Wike is the world’s “first” and “only” bicycle that instantly converts into a stroller or delivery cart without stopping! It’s easy for parents to load and unload all from the front, without having to bend to the back or open side doors, and with measurements of less than 32 inches wide, the Salamander can easily pass through any commercial doorway and on transit vehicles. It also folds down for transport in vans and SUVs. The frames are black, but Wike allows you to custom design the Salamander by choosing your own colours. The Salamander retails for $4,900, and now there’s an electric option available for an additional $1,600.
