2013 Interbike - Day 3

The 2013 Interbike show moved indoors today and it is the first time at Mandalay Bay. Exhibitors and visitors alike seemed to embrace the new site and we found a few interesting items today.

An affordable power meter offering from power2max, a new Louis Garneau aero helmet, reflective fabric from Champion Systems, road shoes from Pearl Izumi, a salty caramel GU, new goggles from Barracuda, an aero road helmet from Catlike, new Syntace aero bars, a patriotic saddle from ISM and a funky V bike from Falco. We also noticed Simon Whitfield with 4iiii glasses, action in the Guru booth, Schwalbe triathlon tires, a strapless heart rate monitor by Mio Alpha, a Cobb Kam Stop brake and more.

You now can get a power2max FSA powermeter for $899 without the rings or $1,000 with the rings.

The P09 is the newest Louis Garneau aero helmet and it features speed ports and improved ventilation.

The Champion System CS reflec technology lights up when hit by light and is available on jerseys and shorts.

Hit by the flash the back pockets became very reflective.

The P.R.O. Leader road shoe from Pearl Izumi.

We are not sure what could be not to like about salty caramel.

The Fenix is a brand new goggle from Barracuda and suited well for triathletes with great peripheral vision.

The Mixino VD2.0 is a new aero road helmet offering from Catlike and it is CSPC certified.

It has been very quiet around Syntace but they now showed this new C6 clip-on bar with a Formula1 nose that has the side benefit to not let things drop through according to the brochure.

But the main reason it is there according to Syntace is to push air below the stem area.

This is the saddle Freddy Rodriguez will ride at the Road World Championships, and this color scheme might be available to consumers too.

We stumbled upon the Falco V bike and will have a separate feature on it.

Simon Whitfield was hanging out in the 4iiii booth today and is sporting the 4iii heads up display glasses here.

It was quite busy in the Guru booth.

Schwalbe is very heavily in with triathlon.

The Mio Alpha heart rate monitor needs no chest strap and reads continuous heart rate from your wrist.

Topeak had a fun competition going to see who could drive the yellow ball with bicycle pump pressure up fastest.

John Cobb does not only do saddles, he has been working on this Kam Stop brake that is also meant to get a carbon cover.

The action tonight was at CrossVegas and her the very competitive Dealers and Wheelers industry race is about to start.

A bit earlier in the day this guy walking his dog seemed to be an appropriate parting shot.
