Meanwhile, a new collaboration with Troy Lee Designs brings extra bling to SRAM’s Descendant cranks and handlebars. Mountain bike groupsets: everything you need to know SRAM’s new cranks will fit any bike you like Revised X01 DH and GX DH SRAM likes to be considered at the forefront of product innovation and, while its latest gravity-focused X01 DH and GX DH groupsets feature few major revisions over their predecessors, they promise improved longevity and compatibility thanks to the incorporation of the brand’s DUB (Durable Unified Bottom Bracket) bottom-bracket setup. The complete guide to bottom bracket standards In SRAM’s words, DUB “seals better, lasts longer, reduces weight and offers flawless performance.” If you are a top-tier racer looking for no-expenses-spared performance or a bike park rat on a budget, X01 DH and GX DH seem to have your back covered that little bit better. New graphics on the X01 DH range keep it looking fresh, with the updated DUB crankset (including a new abrasion guard) priced at £373 / €418 / $383. The aluminium Descendant DH DUB crankset, priced at £158 / €176 / $164, rounds off a solid and relatively inexpensive groupset when added to the GX DH range. These updated components are available to buy in May 2019. Troy Lee Designs collaboration Truvativ Descendent Troy Lee Designs collaboration handlebars are available in aluminium (pictured) or carbon SRAM Cool Californian kit and protection company Troy Lee Designs (TLD) has teamed up with SRAM’s Truvativ brand to make a unique collection of Descendant handlebars and cranks. Troy Lee Designs is well versed in collaboration projects — from grips to footwear it has made its mark across the sport — so the brand aligning itself with SRAM isn’t totally groundbreaking. However, TLD’s massive appeal to core riders is undeniable, and there is no doubt that we’ll be seeing “high-tech camo” (as SRAM puts it) on gravity sleds across the world as soon as this range is put on sale in June 2019. Troy Lee Designs and Truvativ got together to produce some unique crankset patterns SRAM The carbon Descendant TLD Colab crankset will be available in three lengths and two colours.

Foes E-Bike Spy Photo In the annals of downhill mountain bike racing history, Mountain Bike Hall of Famer Brent Foes’ name is well-known to those who have paid close attention to the evolution of frame design and suspension technology. We recently grabbed a spy shot of Brent’s super-secret project e-bike that was being test ridden in the local mountains. All we could find out about the bike is that it will be available as both a frameset and with select build kits, but not until sometime in the summer months. No prices are known as of yet. www.foesracing.com | | | Next → | Single PageThe post Foes E-Bike Spy Photo appeared first on Electric Bike Action.
