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.

WIKE SALAMANDER

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.

De­signed for ath­letes and ad­ven­tur­ers, Clif Nut But­ter
