Things do get better and one of the standout features is the bikes ability to run either 29 or 27 Plus wheels with the flip of a link in the rear rocker link (and a 2nd set of wheels!) … If you would like a real fun bike with the ability to eat tree roots, fly over technical terrain you may have never ridden before then go for the 27 plus option.. or if you like to ride fast and push the bike to its limits, over jumps, berms etc then go for the stability of the 29 wheel and tire! what ever option you pick, you can always pick up a 2nd set of wheels and transform your bike quickly!

Stock will start to arrive in September 2018 but just as we had with the excellent Scott Spark last for 2017, we expect these new bikes to be in high demand!

We can’t talk about the other 2018 Scott bikes until they are released after Euro bike, but we can guarantee there is lots of more exciting stuff to see from Scott Bikes for the 2018 season!

All New Trek X-Caliber & Roscoe for 2018

All-new Trek X-Caliber and Trek Roscoe available now – 2018

New line of rider-focused hardtails offers excellent performance and value. 
 

Hardtails have long been the standard choice for cross country riding and racing due to their unmatched simplicity and efficiency, but the popularity of the 29+ Stache shows that those traits also appeal to many trail riders. In order to meet the demand for trail-ready hardtails, Trek is offering a new trail hardtail called Roscoe alongside the brand-new X-Caliber cross country bike. While these two platforms will be offered at similar price points, each offers a unique riding experience.

Order today

Both platforms feature an Alpha Gold Aluminium frame with tubing that has been carefully manipulated according to advanced FEA analysis to provide the best balance of strength, weight, and ride quality. The new frames include high-end features like internal dérailleur and dropper post cable routing, tapered head tubes, chainstay mounted brakes, and Boost141 hub spacing, which provides the same benefits of Boost148 in an open-dropout configuration. Riders get stronger wheels, shorter, more manoeuvrable chainstays, and more tyre clearance. The 31.6mm seat tube also opens both platforms up to ever-popular dropper post upgrades.

X-Caliber gets a spec package that appeals to the classic XC crowd. It’s focused on speed and efficiency, with Smart Wheel Sizing that pairs the fastest wheel size with each frame size. All X-Caliber models feature 100mm forks for quick handling, 2x Shimano drivetrains for the right gear and cadence in any situation, and rigid seat posts for saving weight.

Roscoe is more laid back, dressed in spec that’s ready to party out on the trail. It’s focused on capability and versatility, with 27.5+ wheels and tyres paired with a 120mm fork for the confidence to take on the most challenging trails. Wider bars and shorter stems provide stable trail handling, while 1x drivetrains keep shifting reliable and simple. Select Roscoe models even get a dropper post, which adds huge value and capability for the customer.

With a wider range of choices including Women’s models, all-new Roscoe and X-Caliber provide a hardtail option for everybody. Whether your customer is a new XC racer or a budding trail rider, we’ve got a new ride for them.

Trek have updated their excellent Boone cyclocross bike – now equipped with front and rear IsoSpeed

Trek has unveiled all-new Boone models that are sure to dominate the cyclocross circuit this season. Debuted by Telenet-Fidea and Katie Compton in the 2016/17 Cyclocross World Cup race season, new Boone models were built with input from pro racers to ensure the strongest, fastest and lightest ride possible.

The all-new Boone is smoother and more balanced than ever before, with front and rear IsoSpeed decouplers that smooth out the course and double vertical compliance for stronger and longer rides. Riders further benefit from Boone’s ultra-lightweight OCLV Carbon frame with built-in Carbon Armor that protects against even the roughest courses. Boone’s proven Pro CX race geometry brings it all together for a powerful, fast and smooth ride.

All Boone models also come stock with flat mount disc brakes and 12mm thru-axles for superior braking and handling, even on the muddiest, rockiest and rootiest courses. Boone’s cyclocross capabilities are furthered with a 1x drivetrain and newly designed 3S chain keeper that keep riders rolling towards the podium, and a specially designed top tube makes shouldering easier as well, for the lightest, quietest and and most versatile cable management system that allows any combination of shift and brake cable setups.

Boone also boasts an all-new, cross-specific CrossLock Water Bottle Cage that allows riders to remove the cage when they line up to race (available here), and use the cage for easy-to-access hydration when they train or warm up. The cage is also available separately and will work with any standard water bottle mounts.
