Inside we take a look at Intense’s M29 FRO, Kryptonite Locks, Lizard Skins Grips, Race Face, and Smith Optics from Sea Otter.
Intense Cycles will be selling a limited number of the M29 FRO. How limited? 15 according to Intense.
Dean Lucas, Jack Moir, and Charlie Harrison have been having good luck onboard the new bike.
It’s important to keep your bike safe and Krytponite is a well known brand with quality locks should you be in the market for a bike lock. They have expanded into bike lights as well.
Kryptonite locks also offer an anti-theft protection program. Depending on the lock they offer up to $5,000 bike for a minimal one time fee of 29.99 or less for 5 years. The 10/10 rated locks offer 1 year fee in the program.
At Sea Otter they were showing off a few of their new locks including the foldable KRYPTOLOK series of locks pictured all the way to the right in the picture below.
The lock has hardened steel links that swivel for moderate security lock ups and comes with a bracket to help transport it. Their locks come with 2 keys and many are part of their Key Safe Program which gives you up to 2 FREE replacement keys should you need it.
Also pictured above is also the Kryptonite Keeper and Kryptonite Evolution. Both feature a new hardened double dead bolt design that bolsters the lock’s strength and effectiveness.
Moving things up a notch to a 10/10 on the Kryptonite security level are the New York Chain Locks. Aptly named the FAHGETTABOUDIT and the Legend Chain.

Lizard Skins has built their brand up quite a bit from the initial Neoprene chainstay protector product.
They continue to make moves today with new products and their recent acquisition of Oury is a strong move to help solidify their future.
Lizard Skins have aligned themselves with good company and their Lock-On Peaty Grip (bottom right above) and Danny MacAskill grip (above Peaty Grip) are well loved among the bike community.
Finding a grip that fits you well is important to Lizard Skins so they offer grips in a variety of widths to accommodate different hands.
The Lock-On Charger EVO is one of their newest offerings and is the most complex grip they have ever created.
The grip has dual patterned textures on each grip allow riders to absorb shock and feel handlebar support. You can see the different height grip nubs that are contoured to give you comfort and grip at all angles while also adding in some waffling for more cushion.
The grip was designed with riders in mind by developing the perfect combination of comfort and functionality. The lock-on ring design ensures the grip will stay in place and the lack of an outer clamp helps facilitate comfort and control.
