Pinarello Dogma XC bike debut

The new Pinarello Dogma XC bike made its debut at the recent World Cup race at Nové Město–and made the podium. The bike can be configured with either 100/90mm or 120/100mm of travel front and rear and utilizes flex stays that are part of a unique rear triangle that features two separate triangles and no bridge in between. The upshot, according to Pinarello, is increased tire clearance (though the XC bike is limited to 29×2.35″ tires), shorter chainstays (actual length unknown), and better mud clearance.

The other thing that stands out about the new Dogma XC is the tiny triangle within the front triangle just above the bottom bracket area. Pinarello says their design gives the bike a stronger bottom bracket area and also allows for an oversized pivot bearing.

  • Buy from Pinarello dealers.

Onza Svelte tire update

The updated Onza Svelte is designed to roll fast for XC and marathon racing in dry, hardpack conditions. Available in just one size — 29×2.30″ — the tan wall version is said to weigh only 780g thanks to its lightweight XC casing.

  • Price: $69.90
  • Buy from Onza dealers.

Specialized/Fjallraven drops latest batch of gear

Last year, outdoor gear brand Fjallraven and Specialized bikes teamed up to release a line of bikepacking bags and apparel. The duo has a handful of new items out with their latest release, including an expandable hip pack, a sleep poncho, kind of like a wearable sleeping bag, a sun shirt, gear vest, and a handlebar rolltop bag, not to mention a few other items.

Limited edition Moots Womble Slider

A $10K singlespeed mountain bike isn’t for everyone so it makes sense that Moots is billing this one as a limited edition. The titanium frame on the Moots Womble Slider features sliding dropouts and the geo is optimized for a properly long 140mm fork up front.

  • Price: Builds start at $9,999. Frame only price is $4,975
  • Buy from moots.com.

Updated Canyon Spectral:ON

The Canyon Spectral:ON electric trail bike was updated in 2022, and this year another change brings longer and beefier Fox and RockShox 160mm travel fork options, resulting in a more slack front end for aggressive enduro-style riding.

  • Price: €4,999-12,399
  • Buy from canyon.com.

Wilier Triestina Urta Max SLR

The Wilier Triestina Urta Max SLR is an XC race bike with a generous 120mm of rear suspension travel, paired with a 120mm fork up front. The 67.5° head angle suggests the bike is a capable XC descender while the 75° seat angle ensures it climbs comfortably too. However the negative-angle stem places the rider in a decidedly racy position.

  • Price: €6,200-11,200
  • Buy from Wilier dealers.

Limited edition Shimano gravel shoe for Unbound

Check out these limited-edition colorways for Shimano’s RX6 and RX8 gravel shoes with designs inspired by the Flint Hills of Kansas.

  • Price: $180 (RX6) and $275 (RX8)
  • Buy from Shimano dealers.

New Rotwild R.E735

The Rotwild R.E735 is a decidedly enduro e-bike. With 170/1600mm of travel front and rear, mixed wheels, a 720Wh battery, and a 64.5° head tube angle this bike begs to be self-shuttled all day long.

  • Price: €8,999-11,499
  • Buy from Rotwild.
