Check inside for some updates from interbike including highlights from e.thirteen, SRAM, Josh Bryceland’s World Cup DH bike, Nate Hill’s Yeti SB5c, and more.
Santa Cruz Syndicate
Josh Bryceland was on a stormer of a run at worlds this year and ended up breaking his foot with the finish line in view sadly. He was still able to secure 2nd place at Worlds to go along with his 1st in the overall rankings. Santa Cruz had his bike on display.
Bash protection is important when you’re smashing rocks and Josh’s setup had a bit of extra beef in this area.
Be sure to check out the gallery for more detailed photos of Josh Bryceland’s bike setup.
Luca Shaw has had some great success this year in the Junior men’s category and SRAM had his bike on display proudly in their booth.
Troy Lee Designs also painted up an american themed helmet for him to use at Worlds. You can check out additional shots of his custom helmet and bike in the gallery.
SRAM has been trickling out their products this year in phases. The ROAM wheels have been a big effort with SRAM as well as their impressive 1x drivetrains (X01 DH, X01, X1,).
The popular RockShox Pike has had amazing success and for a good reason given how well it works. Nate Hills had his Yeti SB5c on display as well with in the SRAM booth with the Pike and full SRAM kit. Guide brakes)

The TRS+ sees similar refinements as the LG1+ but does not have the lower idler puller. The colors you see here aren’t the final ones so they will be a bit more polished once production hits. The grey areas you see in the guides are the colmolded portions of the guides. These rubbery surfaces help quiet the drivetrain down.
Learn about the new LG1+ guide, LG1R machined wheels, stronger P3 crank interface Tire Plasma (1000ml or 250ml), Tire Plasma Valve Stems, e*thriteen tubeless tape, and and more in the video above.
The trsr,trs+,LG1R,and LG1+ cranksets see updates this year to a 1 degree P3 connect. This helps give more strength to the crankset-spindle interface.
