Cyclist magazine
12 Aug 2016

New gear from Bombtrack, Carnac, Viner, Vulpine and Wahoo Fitness.

Bombtrack Hook 3 

Bombtrack produce a range of bikes that stretches from BMX to road and most things in between, with a lean towards adventure too as its bikes have been used in trans-continental rides and races. The Hook 3 is its latest top-end cyclocross machine, replete with a classy, understated carbon frame, DT Swiss hoops, and a very well placed SRAM Force 1x11 drivetrain. It's available in the UK from September with an RRP of £3,619.99.

Carnac Corus Road helmet

Carnac are now an in-house brand of Planet X, and has just released a range of helmets spanning multiple disciplines. We're most interested in the Corus though, being the top of the range aero design. It appears to have taken some design cues from Specialized's Evade helmet, which is no bad thing, and comes in a range of colourways. £79.99.

Viner Maxima 4.0 

Unbeknown to most, Viner is an old Italian brand with a thick heritage. Now an arm of Planet X, it continues to supply bikes priced in the middle of the road bike spectrum. The Maxima 4.0 is the latest top of the range road model, which with Shimano RS81 C24 wheels and Ultegra Di2 included in the build, is a very well priced bike at £2,499.99.

Vulpine Indian Summer range

In the first instalment of a four-part launch, urban cycling apparel brand Vulpine has revealed its Indian Summer range. The garments reflect the moniker, with long sleeves proliferating and varying levels of weather-proofing, and as ever with Vulpine the designs are clean, neat and stylish.

Wahoo Strava Live Segments

Wahoo Fitness has partnered up with Strava and announced it will now be able to support Live Segments on its Elemnt computer. The software will notify the user of upcoming segments, and offer information on your time compared to your previous PB, rival times, or a pre-selected goal.
