Shimano S-Phyre RC91 of 9
The new S-Phyre collection unveiled at Interbike are Shimano's new top-of-the-line performance cycling shoes. The total weight for the RC9 road model is just 232 grams, and Shimano claims it's the company's stiffest and most efficient design to-date. The S-Phyre collection releases this October and will retail for $400.
Cateye Power Meter2 of 9
One interesting new power meter on display at the show was this offering from Cateye, the company's first such product. The left-crank-only mounting device does look very similar to those produced by 4 iiii, who is said to be a partner. The only difference I could tell between the two was in price—roughly $20 more for Cateye units, which range from the $420 Shimano 105 option to the $620 Dura Ace version.
Topeak Bikamper Tent3 of 9
If you've been thinking about a long-distance cycling trip, the Topeak Bikamper is a fool-proof option. The tent rolls up easily, mounts just in front of the handlebars and is simple to set up. The three-season, one-person tent weighs 3.2 pounds and retails for $300.
Terry Topo4 of 9
Producing comfortable women's saddles is something Terry does well. New for 2017 is Topo, the company's first-ever women's mountain bike saddle. Like all of their products, it is designed with plenty of cushion and a cutout for pressure relief. The Topo will be priced at $99.
Reynolds Assault DB5 of 9
With more and more new road bikes equipped with disc brakes, it's taken quite a bit of work from wheel manufacturers to catch up. Reynolds' lineup at Interbike shows they're one of the few ahead of the game, with disc options for the Assault, Attack, Aero 65, Aero 46 and Strike on display. The Assault DB (pictured) retails for $1,799 and has a 41 mm rim profile.
POC Corpora Aid6 of 9
This new commuter helmet from POC is made with integrated lights that work in conjunction with an accelerometer. That means the light will automatically get brighter and blink when you slow, returning to a solid light once you're back up to speed. I was told by a marketing representative that POC hopes to use the technology in its other helmet designs and eventually add a turn signal feature.
Knogg Strongman7 of 9
While the Australian company's new Oi bike bell got a lot of the attention, this lightweight yet incredibly strong bike lock from Knogg was a pretty cool piece of gear, too. The rubber housing will keep your paint from getting scratched up, and the unique square shape provides that little bit of extra space to make locking up your bike that much easier. Retail price is $100.
Pearl Izumi BioViz8 of 9
The BioViz range from Pearl Izumi is designed to keep you visible whether you're out riding during the day or at night. While it might seem like nothing more than bright colors, Pearl Izumi has gone to great lengths to choose hues that are more visible at distance and well-placed to attract the most attention from motorists. We were pleased to see the 2017 collection tones down the neon a touch and adds a sleek vibe, while maintaining the highest standards for visibility in the industry.
