Featured product

This week's featured product: Maxxis Assegai Tyre

Sarah Oosthuizen

GregMinnaarCycles_Featured Product_AssegaiTyre.png

World Cup Champion Greg Minnaar's signature tyre.

  • 3C MaxxGrip rubber compound available

  • Wide Trail casing optimised for 30-35mm rims

  • Dual-ply downhill casing

  • Tubeless compatible

The Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tyre ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

This week's featured product: 2020 Specialized Stump Jumper ST Alloy 29

Sarah Oosthuizen

GREG MINNAAR CYCLES_Featured Product_Specialized2020StumpJumper.png

Specialized’ Stumpjumper ST models are snappy and nimble, yet Incredibly versatile—the perfect rigs for riders seeking both efficiency and capability. The Stumpjumper ST Alloy 29 makes that winning combo affordable, with components that are big on performance and small on dollar signs.

THE ULTIMATE TRAIL BIKE

The innovative sidearm frame design makes a lighter, better-handling bike. By directly connecting all three mounting points of the rear-end and shock to the frame, we’ve increased both stiffness and performance over bumps. End result? Total control.

PERFECTLY-BALANCED SUSPENSION

Our in-house suspension-tuning team develops custom shock tunes, perfectly paired to each bike’s kinematics. We call this Rx Tune and while it’s not the easy way to build a suspension bike, it’s worth it. You feel Rx Tune as perfectly-balanced suspension.

PRODUCT INFO

  • The M5 alloy frame, asymmetrical “sidearm” design, and our 29er Geometry, make this Stumpjumper both capable and efficient.

  • 130-millimeters of plush and controlled suspension (including a lock-out) come courtesy of a RockShox Recon RL fork.

  • SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain gives you single-ring simplicity and all the gearing you need to summit the biggest climbs.

  • 29er wheels roll over obstacles and maintain your momentum with ease.

  • The TranzX seatpost lets you drop your saddle on descents, increasing your maneuverability and control when the trail gets dicey.

This week's featured product: 2020 Specialized Epic comp Carbon Evo

Sarah Oosthuizen

Greg_Minnaar_Cycles_Specialized_Epic_Comp_Carbon_Evo.png

Specialized took their ultralight and efficient carbon-fibre Epic chassis and then added a mix of components that increases your fun factor without also making your checking account weep. The end result is this bike right here. The Epic Comp Carbon EVO is proof that sometimes you actually can have it all.

  • Full fact 11m carbon-fibre frame combines stiffness, strength, and light overall weight to deliver a peerless race bike—at any price. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC rig you've been on.

  • Meet Brain 2.0. Specialized mounted the latest generation Brain shock closer to the axle, making it responsive to the smallest of bumps. We also reduced oil turbulence for consistent suspension performance, no matter how big and fast the hits come. Next, they ditched the Brain’s original floating piston for a bladder system that yields even smoother action. The world’s smartest suspension just got even smarter.

  • An extra 20 millimetres goes a long way when it comes to boosting a fork’s ability to suck up bumps. That’s why they’ve equipped the EVO with a 120mm-travel RockShox Reba RL fork.

  • The 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle groupset brings the performance of Eagle—all the gearing you need to tackle the biggest, steepest climbs—in a simple, single-ring package. No front derailleurs necessary.

  • An X-Fusion Manic seatpost brings you some much-needed drop for tackling steep descents, but it also features a zero-offset design that keeps your weight over the bottom bracket for the climbs.

COLOUR VARIATIONS:

  • Satin Dusty Turquoise/Dove Grey

  • Satin Carbon/Oak Green

The 2020 Specialized Epic comp Carbon Evo is available at Greg Minnaar Cycles and retails for R69000.

This week's featured product: ANGi Crash Sensor

Mylene Paynter

greg-minnaar-cycles-angi-crash-sensor.jpg

ANGi Crash Sensor

Specialized’s patented ANGi sensor calls for help when you can’t.

RRP: R750

In fact, it’s the first device to protect you before, during, and after a crash.

It does this through a pairing with the Specialized Ride App for iOS or Android devices. And if it detects a crash, it commences a countdown that, if you’re ok, you can stop and keep riding. If, however, ANGi determines that you’re in need of help, it’ll send an alert to your selected contacts with your last known GPS coordinates and a message that you’re in need of help.

What about if you’re out of service coverage?

ANGi has a plan for that. Just set your estimated ride time before you head out when you know that your ride will take you out of range. All you need is an active data signal when you start your session. And if you haven’t completed your ride within that time frame, ANGi will send a notification to your contacts with your last uploaded location.

Features

  • ANGi is a ride tracker, crash detector, and safety beacon.

  • Includes a one-time activation code.

  • Detects and reports potentially dangerous helmet impacts to the Specialized Ride app, which notifies your emergency contacts and sends them your most recent GPS coordinates.

  • Additional premium features include start ride notifications and ride-time alerts.

  • Works with most helmets from other brands.

  • Approximate six months' battery life on a 2032 coin cell battery.

  • Weight: 10 grams w/ battery

  • Two-year sensor warranty
