Interbike coverage continues as we take you through some more 2015 products from Chrome Industries, JayBird, Feedback Sports, Maxima’s new bike-specific products, and more.
If you haven’t heard of JayBird, you’re missing out on some great products. They are best known for making awesome wireless bluetooth ‘Blue Buds’ headphones that not only provide great sound quality with their reliable bluetooth implementation, but stay in your ears while cycling. At Interbike they were showing off their new product called Reign.
It is similar to activity trackers like the Nike Fuel band but they’ve taken it to another level. You can read more of the details at http://www.jaybirdsport.com/reign-activity-tracker/ but this monitoring system utilizes a mobile app that is quite verbose in detail giving you vital stats when you wake up, as well as automatically determining and tracking your sleeping patterns, to name a few highlights.
The Reign will be sold for $199 and will include a multitude of things including different wrist straps in the bag to ensure proper fit as well as a extra elastic option should you want to go swimming or other activities with it. The Reign is available in three color options and feels quite weightless when wearing it.
The Reign will come with a charger that the main core will magnetically snap into to charge when needed. Learn more and follow them at www.jaybird.com.
Chome always has an impressive range of products on display at Interbike and this year is no different. They’ve introduced some new pieces including the Chrome Warm series that is their first step into insulated clothing pieces.
Learn all about it in the video below but some of the highlights include two options: a Warm Vest and the Warm Work Shirt model. Both are reversible and have reflective hits in key areas to ensure visibility.
The Warm Vest and the Warm Work Shirt include a synthetic polyfill so that the jacket stays warm even if its wet. The rear pocket also acts as a It can even fold into a pillow.
Chrome is well known for their backpacks, messenger bags, and storage. A few highlights below include the heritage messengers, heritage packs, various seat packs, and handlebar pack.

Maxima fluids are well known to suspension companies and they’ve come out with a line of bike-specific products that are sure to win a few hearts over. While a lot of their products from the moto side of things easily carry over to the bike side of things Maxima has developed some key products for the bike market.
The bike specific items you can see above include a synthetic chain lube, chain wax, PLUSH suspension fluid, and more.
There are plenty of other fine Maxima products available as well that many professional MTB teams and tuning shops already use as well like the suspension clean and many more.
Feedback Sports makes some quality bike stands and this year they were showing off a few new pieces like this wall mount.
We’ve all draped our bike off of its seat on a rack from time to time and this simple Velo Wall Post is a beam that can do just that. A lock can be installed through it as well as being able to store the arm up when its not in use.
The Velo Wall Rack 2D allows for a bicycle storage against a wall but gives an addition dimensional adjustment to allow you to move the legs inward or outward. This lets you move the rear wheel closer to the wall for example to help save some space.
Feedback Sports has also released an Android version of their bike maintenance app to accompany the IOS version.
Finally as far as new products also had his neat bottle opener that attaches to their stands. Initially they only made a few of them but it looks like they’ve been popular enough that they may go into production. Feedback Sports has some big plans for 2015 so keep an eye on them.
EVOC is a great little company that makes some nice bags and accessories for bikers. They have become quite popular over the years and had a variety of things on display in their booth for 2015. Below you can see some of the highlights for 2015 that they walked us through in their EVOC jumpsuits.
The EVOC Trail Builder pack is a pack that many builders will enjoy as it has many areas for them to story a wide variety of tools.
For riders looking to get their bikes to the top of the hill EVOC has a new Tailgater pad for truck tailgates. It has been updated quite a bit as you can see and has more padding and slots for bikes as well some straps to keep things where they should be. If you’ve ever used a shuttle pad you know how bikes can move on bumpy roads on tailgates without straps and this should help. Two sizes will be available.
Moving back into backpacks, EVOC has a pack for just about every rider and another highlight is their FR Porter (18L). The pack has all of the key things a city rider can benefit from.
Sophisticated city backpack with certified back protector for all those wandering the city streets on a daily basis. The Porter, featuring numerous secure and easily accessible compartments and a well-ventilated, neutrally balanced carrying system, has been specially designed to fulfil all urban mobility needs.
The back of the FR Porter has a channel built into the center of the pack to aid in keeping your back cool as well. The backplate is removable too.
There are some additional shots of more EVOC backpacks and details in the gallery. Many of their bags give riders plenty of options for not only typical storage and hydration, but offer areas to secure pads and helmets to as well.
