There were a ton of new bike launches this week, from long travel mountain bike to race-ready road bikes and everything in between. The biggest collection of new bikes comes from Specialized, with new Allez, Diverge and Crux models, but there’s also new ones from Trek, Cervelo, Niner and more in those links below.
On the dirt, the Scott Genius handles the big hits, and the new BMC Agonist handles the big days. If you’re looking for opinions on some bikes, we reviewed the Parlee TTiR and Otso fat bike, too. And check out a few of the pro bikes from Leogang World Cup DH here and here.
Perhaps the most anticipated bit of news is from Pirelli, though, with surprisingly affordable (for a high end product) top shelf road tires. They promise this is just the beginning, which is exciting considering the tech they’re bringing for the price.
