Sea Otter – Archer D1x Electronic Shifting, Diamondback, Finish Line, Delium Tires

10/20/2021 : sicklines

Sea Otter had a lot to see and we take a look at more from the 2021 show below from Archer Components, Diamondback, Finish Line, and Delium Tires.

Archer Components

If you’re not familiar with Archer Components, their D1X system allows you to retrofit their Bluetooth shifter and control module to just about any bike. The shift module attaches to your chainstay and can work with any derailleur to give you wireless remote shifting. Their system allows you to use it on any combination of gears and even has options to over shift if needed. If you tweak your derailleur on the trail you can quickly adjust the micro-shfit on the shifter to compensate!

Electronic shifting is the future and Archer Components had an updated D1x Sprint system on display at Sea Otter. It uses a new Sprint battery system that speeds up the shift speed significantly compared to the first-generation batteries.

Because the shifter is the brain in the drivetrain setup you can mix and match brands to your heart’s desire with Archer as each gear is configured in their app that pairs with your drivetrain. No matter the number of gears, 5speed, 10speed, 12speed, Archer adapts without a problem.

Finish Line USA has been making bike care products since 1988 and they’ve been developing some new products that they brought to Sea Otter.

Their newest product offering is their Fiberlink tubeless sealant. It’s currently available in an 8oz, 32oz, or 1 gallon depending on your needs. Their sealant has kevlar fibers in it to help seal up holes more effectively in addition to being low viscosity and fast-acting to help seal quicker in the event of a puncture.

A really compelling program they were promoting is their 1/2 price refills that shops can participate in. It helps you get a cheaper refill on dry lube, wet lube, and their Super Bike Wash products while also being a bit more eco-friendly. Check with your local shops to see if they participate.
