Day two continues at the 2014 Sea Otter Classic. Inside we’ve got some details on some new items from FOX, e.thriteen / the hive, and more.
If you visit Sea Otter there’s a lot of opportunities to pick up stickers, products, and much more. GoPro makes an awesome helmet camera and they are giving out a few this weekend in addition to T-Shirts, hats, and other GoPro accessories at key times in the day.
FOX announced their revamped 32, 34, and 36 lineup the other day and many people were in there checking out the improvements. Be sure to read the details we’ve posted to learn some of the details.
FOX went retro this year and had some classic stuff on display.
FOX is offering sticker packs to re-brand your FOX gear in a different color. Special Sea Otter pricing is available as well as cheap T-Shirts.
Photo sharing contests are a popular theme this year at Sea Otter and FOX had a neat truck you could build.
The Hive / e.thirteen had some things in their booth to highlight inlcuding their XD driver that comes with any wheelset you purchase and a 40 / 42t Extended Range cog.
The driver was a cinch to swap out and e.thirteen showed us how easy it was. Take note that you read the directions as there is a reverse threaded part in their axle/hub design.
Many riders have been looking for options to run a 40/42t cog in the back without paying the entry fee of SRAM’s XX1/X01. The e.thirteen solution is available in a variety of colors and they’ve got a 42t option for SRAM cassettes to convert your 10speed cassette or a 40/42t option for Shimano cassettes. In their display the shifting was pretty smooth and many riders we’re sure will be pleased with this product.
Pricing is $69 for the Extended Range cog and $55 for their narrow-wide chainring.
Specialized has a fat-bike race setup where you can battle everyone to see how you stack up on a sweet roller setup. The noise coming from this area is impressive. Every time the big fat wheels spin up the rollers as the crowd really gets into this exhibit.
