SRAM X-Sync Direct Mount

sram ring

Other manufacturers developed direct mount rings for SRAM cranks before SRAM did, but this new X-Sync Direct Mount looks a lot sleeker than most and is probably stiffer. Eliminating the spider can save up to a 100g in weight and also allows a wider range of ring sizes – the X-Sync Direct Mount is available in 26-40t sizes. The 32t ring shown weighs 70g and costs £75.

Mojo Small Parts

On the left is the new RockShox Pike fitting kit for the Powa Products Dfender mudguard. It’s available with a full fender for £49, or if you already have one and just want to move it from bike to bike you can buy the fitting kit singularly for £20.

Fancy a bit of bling? Fox is offering a limited run of this Gold Kashima Stem Cap. It weighs 6g, costs £19.95. Mojostore.co.uk

Met Parachute HES

met helmet met detail

The old Met Parachute had a replaceable chin guard, but the new version is a proper full face, despite having what looks like a modular design. At 757g it’s super lightweight due to the HES (homothetic embedded construction) and has a ton of vents, an adjustable Safe-T retention device, Kevlar straps and a Gel brow pad to stop sweat running in your eyes. In the pic above you can see the integrated goggle clip and optional bolt-on camera mount. Met-helmets.com

DMR V6 pedals

These are DMR’s new V6 plastic pedals. You could say they are for kids, but we think they’re for anyone who wants a killer value pedal with a concave shape, deep pin design and smooth bearings. £17.95 a pair and a stack of colours to choose from. DMRbikes.com

Ragley Controls


Ragley has a new range of components inlcuding this Stubbing stem and Wiser riser bar. The stem has a two-tone finish, a low stack height and a Easton style Top-Lock clamping, where you close up the two top bolts fully before tightening the lower two in the normal way. Ragleybikes.com
