Sea Otter 2015 - SQlab Hans Rey Collection, SQlab Insoles, Trickstuff ER Cassette and Syntace Torque Wrench


Hans Rey SQlab Signature Line 


SQlab is coming out with a colorful limited edition Hans Rey saddle and grip collection. The saddle is their 611 Active Saddle and features the SQlab Fitted, Active and Stepped designs. The 611 Active MTB also offers the unique SQlab extended nose allowing for better control while climbing and maneuvering in technical trail conditions. It comes in 13, 14 and 15cm widths and a multi-color scheme of blue and yellow and black. I have used the saddle and can attest to the comfort and ergonomic capabilities of the saddle. The grips are their 711 MX, and the wing features a large surface and a low position for optimized hand pressure distribution, helping to prevent ulnar nerve issues. It comes in small and medium sizes and a dual color scheme of blue and yellow.

Sea Otter 2015 - Schwalbe Annouces the 27.5+ Nobby Nic and Rocket Ron


Schwalbe is getting into the 27.5+ marketplace with two of their most popular models, the Nobby Nic, and Rocket Ron. They’ll come in a variety of versions and two sizes of 27.5x2.8 and 27.5x3.0.

They’ll have their typical Evolution varieties for the Nobby Nic, including the PaceStar and TrailStar compounds, and Snakeskin sidewalls and are TL ready compatible. Depending on the size, they’ll weigh between 820-870 grams and will be available in the Fall of 2015.

The Rocket Ron only come in the PaceStar compound for the Evolutions but get the lighter LiteSkin sidewalls along with, the tougher SnakeSkin. Depending on the size, they’ll weigh between 695-820 grams, and they’ll also be available in the Fall of 2015.

All the tires will come in their cost-conscious Performance edition if desired.

I am looking forward to trying out a set of the Nobby Nic’s in the 3.0” width and TrailStar compound.
