The Best Stuff at Interbike 2018

Over the last week, all the big brands (and little) in the cycling industry came together in Reno, Nevada to show off their new goods at the Interbike trade show. There’s a ton of exciting new stuff coming out this year, below are some of my favorites, you can also hit up Interbike’s website if you want to see the full list of Most Innovative Product winners.

Bianchi E-Aria

An e-bike  that doesn’t scream e-bike.  The new Aria e-Road aero carbon bike comes with Bianchi’s  IPD | Inner Power Drive system.  You get the look and feel of a traditional high-performance road bike, with powerful electrical assistance on board for $6,500.

Reform Road Saddle

Heat-moldable shoes have been a thing in cycling for a long time. Now you can grab a heat-moldable saddle, thanks to the folks at Landyachtz, a Canadian longboard company that has branched into bikes. The seat can be molded more than once thanks to a heating element that is built directly into the saddle.

Cane Creek eeWings With Stages Power

Cane Creek’s super cool  eeWings titanium crankset  was already a stunning piece of kit. The $999, 400-gram, tubular titanium crankset was already more durable and up to 40 percent stiffer than a carbon crankset, now you can get them with a Stages left-side power meter. At $1,500 these definitely fall in the “halo product” category, but man are they pretty.

Lezyne Torque Drive

Lezyne’s Torque Drive wrench set is small, lightweight (190 grams), and very packable. Plus, it’s cheap ($50). If you travel with your bike, this  is a great option to make sure you can  reassemble  it on-site without  overtightening  bolts or crushing carbon.  The wrench has a 2nm to 9nm torque range, and comes with 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, and 6mm hex bits, as well as T10, T25, and T30 Torx bits. Also included are Phillips and flat-head screwdriver bits.
