and gravel path alike. The range is up to 58 miles and sports a 250x brushless DC hub motor. The Ferber, meanwhile, is designed with a more traditional sensibility. Faster, more responsive and manoeuvrable with wider 26-inch wheels for an upright and comfortable ride. The range is up to 62 miles and potential customers are listed as suburban men and women over 35 and retired types, those wishing to shift gear everyday, among others.


NO SHORTAGE of product available from the i-ride stable at Core. One of the most notable will be the brand new Argon 18 bikes and frames, completely re-designed for 2014. Generating the most interest so far has been the top end Gallium Pro road frame, which will be offered in a number of bike build options. The new Gallium Pro has achieved a higher stiffness to weight ratio while maintaining the highly responsive power transfer, accurate handling and outstanding comfort that the Gallium Pro is known for. All this and it only weighs 790g (frame only). i-ride has a full new range of


Northwave shoes for 2014, including the new Extreme Tech Plus – an advancement from last year’s Extreme Tech with various

NOW IN its third year of exhibiting at Core Bike the show is firmly at the top of Mojo’s ‘to do’ list, it tells BikeBiz: “Core Bike gives us a great opportunity to meet with our dealers and discuss the finer points of Fox Suspension. We’ll be exhibiting the 2014 range of Fox Suspension, including the awesome 40 Float and new Talas 5 System, along with the class leading Float X rear shock. As usual we’ll be there to answer all your suspension questions and share our years of experience. Whether it’s setup advice, maintenance and service advice or a thorough technical explanation you’re looking for, please call by for a chat.”


HALO WILL be showing many new products at Core including road disc- ready carbon wheels, set to be a great performance solution for riders who want to enter the world of disc brakes for road bikes, but also want to continue to use rim brakes for competition as they allow the use of both. Halo Carbaura 6D 700c road wheels aim to answer the increasing demand from sportive riders looking for durability and value in a performance Carbon Aero wheel package. Halo chose a structural design for the Carbaura rims over one that uses the carbon part purely as a fairing for aerodynamic gain as the resultant shorter spokes on our wheels

create less vibrational noise and are less susceptible to sending the wheel out of true should a spoke break. The shallow 38mm section Carbauras


provide the best performance over a variety of course topography while the 50mm and 58mm versions provide incrementally better gains for time trial and triathlon, we’re told. The Carbauras have a Structural Carbon (3K Carbon weave) rim with bonded Alloy clincher section and CNC brake surfaces. Rim Options available: 38, 50 or 58mm rim depths. Front wheels feature 20H Radial


spoking, providing a lightweight, stable Aero structure with lateral rigidity.

new features, most notably a double speed winch instead of using an Ratchet system. The micrometric speed winch system represents the evolution of the closure system to offer precision fit. Catlike also has some eye-catching new


products like the new Mixino helmet. This helmet is reputedly the first in the world to feature a new material called Graphene which is derived from graphite. Catlike uses this material to form part of the inner skeleton to make the helmet extremely light and above all improves the safety by increasing impact energy absorption. The Mixino also features a Multi position system for adjustments, allowing the helmet to fit many different head shapes and achieve maximum comfort.
