Interbike 2015 Roundup

We put time on quite a few new rides at Interbike this year, and there are some interesting new products coming down the pike.

In case you missed any of the coverage, here’s the cheat-sheet:

So what’s Interbike all about?

In two parts, Cy Whitling fills you in:

2nd Look: Interbike 2015

We rode ten of the fanciest, blingiest, carbon-iest bikes out there. Here’s what we found:

2016 Banshee Phantom: One option in the growing class of aggressive 29ers designed for more technical trails.

2016 Canfield EPO: A carbon update on one of our old favorites, the Yelli Screamy.

2016 Cannondale Habit Carbon 1: The lightest bike we rode at Interbike, and one that definitely favors the XC-crowd.

2016 Devinci Troy RR: The second generation Troy made some big changes – and improvements – over the prior version.

2016 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt BC Edition: One of the more adjustable bikes out there, and the best stiffness-to-weight ratio of any bike we rode.

2016 Santa Cruz Bronson: The revised Bronson is slacker, longer, and more stable than its predecessor.

2016 Santa Cruz 5010: One of the best options out there if long backcountry rides are on your agenda.

2016 Scott Genius 700 Premium: A lightweight trail bike that should appeal to more XC-oriented riders.

2016 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 650b: One of the lightest bikes in its class, with great small-bump compliance.

2016 Transition Smuggler 1: One of a very small class of bikes that should appeal to a wide range of riders on a wide range of trails.
