New Carbon Turbo Levo

Specialized just announced a new Levo e-bike option, the Turbo Levo, bringing the number of frame and build combos to seven. The Specialized Turbo Levo features a carbon frame and is priced at $6,800, which sits in between the two alloy builds. It comes with a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, a budget RockShox 35 Silver fork, and mixed alloy wheels. A 500Wh battery and Specialized 2.2 motor round out the package.

  • Price: $6,800
  • Buy from Specialized dealers and website.

Club Ride denim ride jeans

The new Club Ride Spoke denim collection is bringing casual style to fall rides. These jeans are designed to work well on the bike with a 2% spandex blend for easy movement and comfort, a reflective band at the rolled hem, and a “No Crack Back” waist. Available in waist sizes 31-38, and 32 and 34in lengths for most sizes.

Continental Xynotal tire test

We’ve been testing the Continental Xynotal for a couple months this summer and should have a review drafted soon. The Xynotals are part of Continental’s revamped line of MTB tires and are designed for mostly hardpack conditions.

Fall Nukeproof Blackline jerseys

The latest Nukeproof Blackline jerseys come pre-splattered with mud so you don’t have to worry about getting them dirty on the trail this fall. Featuring a super lightweight back panel the jersey is designed to breathe while offering a decent amount of protection. The Blackline jersey uses Bluesign® fabrics which are said to be more sustainable.

  • Price: $60
  • Buy from Wiggle for men and women.

Race Face Atlas 35 handlebar in for test

Sometimes the most straightforward components are the most difficult to review. So far this season the Race Face Atlas 35 handlebars have worked well, and we’re stoked with the mid-rise 35mm (high) version we have in for test.

  • Price: $89.99
  • Buy from REI and evo.
