This week's featured product: Specialized Tahoe MTB Shoe

Mylene Paynter

gm-cycles-specialized-tahoe-mtb-shoe.jpg

The Tahoe mountain bike shoes were designed to deliver rugged and dependable off-road performance, especially if your rides see a good deal of hiking. To do so, they feature our SlipNot™ rubber outsole for added grip over roots and wet terrain. And to keep the shoes stiff enough for riding and flexible enough for walking, they also have our Lollipop™ inner plate that sits in a bed of comfy EVA padding. The fit is relaxed for everyday use, and the Body Geometry sole provides ergonomically designed comfort and efficiency.

  • Body Geometry sole construction and footbed: ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimising hip, knee, and foot alignment.
  • SlipNot™ rubber compound developed in our tire lab optimizes shoe and pedal connection.
  • Stiff Lollipop™ inner plate delivers high performance pedaling, and it sits in a bed of EVA to soften landings and maintain off-the-bike traction.
  • Relaxed Fit for a balance of pedal feel and walking comfort.
  • Lacelock™ elastic keeps laces out of chainrings.
  • Body Geometry Footbeds measurably increase power, reduce time to exhaustion, and reduce injury by aligning hip, knee, and foot.
  • Toe and heel overlays provide added abrasion resistance.
  • Approximate weight: 350g (1/2 pair, size 42)

This week's featured product: Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon Wheelset

Mylene Paynter

gm-cycles-santa-cruz-reserve-carbon-wheelset.jpg

Strongest Wheels on the Market

Whether it's a sunset lap with friends or a race run against the clock, a broken wheel ruins any ride. We set strength and impact resistance as our highest priority, but strength doesn't have to mean uncomfortably stiff. Our wheels are compliant enough to avoid that harsh "wooden" ride that gives some carbon rims a bad name off road. We only make off road bikes at Santa Cruz, so we have the privilege of being able to focus purely on the mountain bike experience. Everything from the thickness of rim beads to external spoke hole reinforcements comes purely from our experience of knowing what riders need at every level - from international racing to your local trails.

Lifetime Warranty

Lifetime. No gimmicks. Not limited. If you do actually manage to break our rim while out riding, we'll replace it for free. And probably high five you in the process! If it gets run over by a truck we'll help you out with a low cost accidental 'crash replacement', because life's too short to argue. We know riding time's too precious to keep you waiting, so we'll do our best to sort you out fast.

This week's featured product: Deity Knuckleduster Grip

gm-cycles-deity-knuckle-duster-grip.jpg
  • 132mm length with 32mm outer diameter
  • Intended use: All MTN / Enduro / DJ / Slopestyle and DH
  • 101 grams for the se

The grip of choice for World Cup style assassin and gloveless wonder, Sam Blenkinsop, the KNUCKLEDUSTER embodies our attention to detail and our focus on function! Taking a risk and thinking outside the box is where DEITY thrives and these are certainly case in point!

Not only have we developed our TRC rubber blend that gives you remarkable grip with incredible durability, the KNUCKLEDUSTER also features a tapered internal sleeve that you have to tap onto your handlebar for full engagement. This tapered sleeve feels like it is already locked into place once fully tapped onto the bar and coupled with a single bolt lock-on clamp, you will not develop any play.

The body of the grip combines the best elements of a half-waffle, mushroom ribbing, and an ergo feel in a stunning package. Featuring a mushroom pattern to minimise vibration, the true magic of the KNUCKLEDUSTER lies in the V channel chevron ribs that ergonomically fill the swell of your palm and then seamlessly transition to a recessed half waffle on the underside. Why is this magic? All half waffle patterns are outboard and are notorious for creating hot spots on long rides. By designing the top to seamlessly transition to a recessed half waffle pattern, your fingers sit perfectly into the grip and allow you full control even in the roughest of conditions without being plagued by hot spots or blisters. The KNUCKLEDUSTER grips truly are an “all day grip” that allow you to keep it Pinned Wide Open at all times!
