Interbike is the country’s largest annual bike industry trade show and, in true style of its host city, Vegas, it is a total spectacle. You’ve got a wildly eclectic crowd representing most every facet of the bike industry—everyone from BMXers to the urban fixie crowd to cycling brand royalty (like Louis Garneau and George Hincapie working their respective brand booths) to the hardcore Ironman triathlete. It is mind-spinning and awesome. The show offers an opportunity to preview the latest and greatest from the cycling world by day and party Vegas-style at night.
Some highlights from walking the show floor yesterday (more Interbike coverage here):
1. 2XU TR Chamois
A nod to the growing number of triathletes (me among them) opting for a noseless saddle such as the ISM Adamo, the TR Chamois mirrors the architecture of the twin railed saddle, providing variable padding at precise pressure points (lower density pad at the nose than on the rear). Available in certain cycling and tri shorts in Spring 2013.
