Eurobike 2016 highlights
Like every year at the end of August , we took the direction of Friedrichshafen, Germany, to visit the biggest European bicycle show : Eurobike. It is a unique occasion to meet the actors of cycle market and to discover their new products for 2017, to offer you the best for your future custom Victoire bicycle. You will find below a selection of the most interesting products we saw there.
We have discovered Box Components, a US brand which offers a nice 1x11 drivetrain. The shifter has the particularity to have a single lever to push up and down the gears. To shift into an easier gear, it’s just like any other shifter you’ve used. But, to shift into a harder gear, you actually push the lever inward, towards the stem, using the tip of your thumb. While that may sound confusing, it takes no time to get used to. After a few times up and down the cassette, it felt totally normal. The derailleur is compatible with a Shimano 11 gears cassette or their own one until 46T.
Praxis presented a new MTB carbon crankset, called LYFT, with a weight that compete directly with the Race Face Next SL. The one presented on the photo is a standard aluminium model but we still love the uncluttered style of their products. It is a good way to custom your groupset with an original part.
At last, the British brand presented new 4 pistons calipers, available in two versions, one for Sram levers, the other for Shimano ones. A good news to custom your bike with made in Europe parts.
The calipers and the hubs will be available in the next weeks, and can be built on your future Victoire custom frame.
