Check out some highlights from SDG, Spank, and Race Face inside.
SDG 2013 options
We’ve covered some of the new SDG products before, so check out this link to see more 2013 SDG products.
New at Sea Otter was the Anka Martin designed Allure saddle. Featuring her own artwork, this saddle is designed for females looking for a comfortable saddle that has a bit of Anka art-flavor to it as well.

SDG has been doing more and more collaborations with others like deity and Race Face as well.
Continuing on with Race Face, they’ve got some new chainrings called their Single Narrow/Wide they’re quite proud of. Featuring a similar tooth design as the new SRAM XX1, this captive chain is designed to work better at holding your chain on the chainring.

The nice thing about this new Race Face chainring is that its easy to retrofit this to your current drivetrain without having to go full SRAM XX1.
They’ve also got some new color options for SixC and a carbon SixC SDG compatabile post.
If you’ve got carbon cranks, RaceFace’s protective boots are a nice addition. They also fit on SRAM cranks as well in our experience.

Spank Industries continues to improve their product range year after year. Their Spike pedal is a stellar little pedal that we’ve been digging. This year they’ve got some upgrades available for the Spike that lighten things up a bit.
They’ve designed a new Titanium axle that the say is a bit better the current ti axle offerings.
The alloy pins you see are also being tested under Logan Binggeli and the estimated weight is 335g for the Spike Pedals with the upgraded axle and pins.
Timing wise, they’re looking to be available in July/Summer.
