Three competitions to win Bars, Forks and Pedals so don’t miss out on them.

 

Bars

 

The look and feel of the bars are spot on, we couldn’t find numbers on up or back ‘sweep’ but they feel great. defiantly not as flat as a Cliq or Stay Strong but at a shade over 28 inches wide they felt great.

eXotic BMX handlebar takes the pounding and keeps on going due to multiple butting of the tube and generous radius bends. Available in various sizes and colours with antislip diamond cut pattern in the clamping area.

Forks

 

These forks had us confused, straight out the box our first impression had us thinking of mid 90’s Answer race forks. But,  the design looked good then and it actually still does now. Then you here the price for these full carbon legged, 1.9 pound forks and they suddenly look even better (Answer Dagger 24″ = 1.4 pounds)

Test riders thought – “Bike felt great with them on, Nice and light. Didn’t get gates but was jumping and manualing’ and front end feels solid, no flex.”

The eXotic CREATURE is a stunning carbon BMX fork with 7075 Al steerer, carbon fibre tube stanchions and forged 6061 Al dropouts.

Uncut steerer length: 200mm (20″ Wheel); 185mm (24″ Wheel)

Pedals

 

We got to test out the Magnesium pedals on a little road trip to Manchester via Crewe. Having a flats session every now and again is so so important for modern racers. While having our sessions over the weekend I was told by a younger rider that he had never even ridden on flats………. I had to jump on my pedals and ride off at that point.

The only issue I had with the pedals was in the old days we would set off and ‘adjust’ our foot position on the go………. There was none of that on these pedals !! The large pins mixed with a pair of Vans left no movement. Planted !!!!!

Lightweight flat pedals with nylon-reinforced composite body and sealed cartridge bearings. This pedal is seriously grippy, comes in 6 different colours and can really take a beating.

Replaceable and adjustable pins allow you to customise the level of grip you need and will make this pedal last that little bit longer –even after hours of abuse.

The ultra durable and super sleek injection moulded body is not just light and tough but is also less prone to scratch and damage.

And to keep things running smooth this pedal comes with aCNC-machined Cr-Mo axle on sealed cartridge bearing as standard and features rubber lip seals between the axle end and pedal body to prevent water and dirt to come get into the bearings and to keep them going for longer in between services.
