It is time to take the opportunity to reflect on the previous month’s trends and look into the future to see what we have in store for you and the year ahead.
Bike tech will never stand still and that proved to be the case in 2019. The year of the Silverback Stratos CF SBC, the arrival of the Siablo CF, utilizing a brand-new Carbon frame and the launch of the S-Electro Gravel.
WHAT TECH TRENDS ARE SET TO FLY IN 2020?
This is what our Product Team has to say:
Our future prediction for the road portfolio is use of tubeless ready tyre and rim setup at OEM specification level. There is a big push from industry to make tubeless ready tyres available throughout the performance hierarchy. Tubeless tyres are lower risk to punctures and can seal a puncture, provided the tyre is not slashed. The tubeless tyres also have lower rolling resistance.ffers better road feedback as there is less rigidity in the system. Eduan – Mechanical Engineer.
2020 is going to be the year where all brands that have been playing catch up will have settled into the new-school geometry trends. With geometry settling in there is going to be a greater consensus amongst bikes, and consumers are going to have more choice than ever. The trick is going lie in the education of the consumers, as we are still seeing customers that believe that bikes with sub-70° head angles can’t climb. Thomas – Engineer.
For the future and next year, there will be a fresh new look and feel with regards to paint finishes on all our bicycles, color combos and graphics that will compliment each induvial frame, components, and accessories. Craig – Graphic Designer.
Our hope for 2020 is to prove that we are rising to great heights. We choose to be the best and we expect to be the best. We always strive for perfection and our quality is the highest expression of this.
