We’ve only begun to scratch the surface at the Eurobike 2014 show. Keep your eyes peeled to the future pages of Mountain Bike Action for the full report. For now, these are just a few of the gems that caught our attention.
More than just Electric: Most riders think of Haibike as just an electric bike company, but they’re much more than that. Their Sleek 9.3 caught our attention with it’s clean carbon lines and aggressively styled design. The bike sports 100 millimeters of travel and is designed as a cross country race weapon.
Look fast at a standstill: The carbon wheels look reminiscent of older carbon spoked designs with a modern looking twist.
Steel is real: Ok, we’re tired of that cliche too, but Ritchey’s new Timberwolf prototype takes it to heart. The steel hardtail is designed for relatively long travel forks and 27.5 inch wheels. The simple good looks of a hardtail like this are always enough to grab our attention.
Get low: FSA debuted this ultra-low carbon stem that’s designed to help 29er riders keep the front end of their bike low. The stem features a negative 22-millimeter rise that’s sure to make the raciest of riders happy.
Podium bound: The Mondraker Podium is built for one thing: speed. This full carbon hardtail uses an integrated stem and steering system mated to RockShox’s RS-1 fork that’s sure to be stiff, light, and fast on the trail.

One for the trail pups: If you’re one to ride with your favorite four-legged friend, this will make you smile. GoPro now makes a mount so your pup can be your own personal film crew.
Enduro Specific: Bell’s new Super series of helmets are as enduro as they come. They feature a detachable chin/jaw guard that snaps off in three easy clicks. The new helmets also feature a breakaway camera mount, goggle compatible visor, and an aggressive Overbrow ventilation system.
One for the kiddos: Transition’s new Ripcord is designed for the little shredders. The bike uses 24 inch wheels and Transition’s single-pivot suspension design.
Finally here: DVO suspension’s all new Diamond enduro fork has been a long time in the works, but it’s finally ready for the prime time. Notice the new black stanchion tubes coupled with DVO’s signature green graphics. We can’t wait to put one of these through the paces.
