New and updated mountain bikes and gear from Fox, Cotic, Bike Friday, Industry Nine, Devinci, and Ombraz.

Gear Watch Wednesday is a weekly update on the latest mountain bike gear releases and products that Singletracks has received for test. Have gear news to share, or products you’d like us to check out? Email [email protected].

Cotic Jeht Gen2

The second generation Cotic Jeht steel full suspension trail bike isn’t longer or slacker, but it is lower. The updates to the 150/140mm 29er are designed to make the bike event more planted with a more progressive suspension curve for the larger frame sizes. Cotic also moves more of the bike’s production to the UK in order to reduce the brand’s overall carbon footprint.

  • Price: £2,199 / 2,050€ / $2,419 for the frame with RockShox Deluxe shock. Complete builds also available.

Fox releases XC/gravel helmet

Late last week Fox launched an all new gravel slash cross-country helmet, the Crossframe Pro. The visor-less Fox Crossframe Pro is designed to maximize ventilation and includes premium features like eyewear storage, MIPS, a washable liner, Fidlock buckle, and BOA retention system.

Bike Friday All-Packa

Singletracks doesn’t usually cover folding mountain bikes, but then again few if any are as MTB as the Bike Friday All-Packa. The redesigned All-Packa has clearance for tires up to 20×2.8″ and compatibility with 1×11 SRAM drivetrains. Bike Friday says the fully loaded bike folds in 30 seconds, making it a tempting choice for travel to truly remote locations around the globe.
