Shimano XTR Trail Brake
To provide highly adjustable, high-powered braking performance with no compromise, Shimano designed the XTR Trail M9020 hydraulic disc brakes. The integration of Servo-Wave brake-boosting technology into an XTR M9020 Trail brake generates gobs of lightweight stopping power (125 percent of the previous XTR benchmark, to be exact) that can be precisely rolled on and off with single-finger effort-giving you a better grip on the bar and ultimately better control of your ride.

SANTA CRUZ BICYCLES Nomad X01
SALE 30% Off $5,039.30 $7,199.00
With the massive popularity of the previous generation Nomad, the engineers at Santa Cruz could have simply tweaked the geometry and slapped on a fancy new paint job and called it good. However, if you're aware of this Northern California company, you'd realize they're never content resting on the previous acclaim, preferring to blaze their own trail by purposely designing bikes from the ground up. Symbolizing Santa Cruz's legacy as pioneers in the mountain bike world, the Nomad Carbon CC XO1 RCT Air Complete Mountain Bike is completely redesigned for 2018 with an aggressive stature and downhill-inspired chassis that pushes it further into gravity realms.
SANTA CRUZ BICYCLES Highball Carbon X01 Eagle
SALE 20% Off $4,319.99 $5,399.00
When Santa Cruz announced the revamping of the Highball we were eager to see what there was in store for the featherweight cross-country machine. The idea of lightening the already feathery bike gave us worries of fragile, noodly frames that bend under pressure, but we're pleased to see the domination and power that comes from the Santa Cruz Highball Carbon CC X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. It demonstrates composure in terrain that has most hardtails feeling twitchy and unreliable, thanks in part to its ultra-stiff carbon layup, and updated geometry. But don't be alarmed, we won't try to convince you that the Highball is an all-mountain slayer, it still retains its ultra-stiff cross-country prowess for podium-level domination, and blasting up climbs to earn KOM's on the daily.
SANTA CRUZ BICYCLES Tallboy 29 Carbon
SALE 20% Off $3,839.99 $4,799.00
Always a perennial favorite for all-around trail domination, Santa Cruz's Tallboy Carbon 29 S Complete Mountain Bike can happily toe the start line at a mid-week cross country race with its sporty 110/120mm travel, and once the weekend comes around, it's happy to do some backwoods trail exploring over rugged terrain. Big wheels and short travel are certainly a recipe that's been popular on bikes lately, and when paired with the Tallboy's refined geometry, it really shines on the climbs, when pedaling along ridgelines and descending precipitous and aggressive terrain. We'd remiss to forgot mentioning the provided carbon frame, which is both stiff and durable while dropping some serious weight over aluminum ones. This frame features guards on vulnerable areas that offer peace of mind when you're thrashing it on the trail, and SC is so confident in its quality that it's backed by an impressive lifetime warranty. Internal cable and stealth dropper routing clean up the frame's aesthetics while protecting the shift cable and RockShox Reverb dropper hose from dirt and debris. This version's "S" kit comes with SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain, giving you a massive 500% gear range without having to deal with a clumsy front derailleur. Also from SRAM is it's Level TL brakes pinching the 180mm rotors front and back to scrub speed with power and precision.
YETI CYCLES SB5.5Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018
SALE 35% Off $2,275.00 from $3,500.00
Yeti Cycle's finger on the pulse of mountain biking is pressing down harder than ever and they have been in the game just about as long as anybody else. Trends come and go and designs advance to ultimately allow riders to push their limits and go faster on more difficult terrain. The 2018 SB5.5 Turq is the culmination of everything Yeti has learned in over 3 decades of building frames. The suspension design on the SB5.5 gives it the ability to happily pedal and climb with XC bikes but the geometry pushes its capabilities in gnarly terrain that Yeti's Enduro team will occasionally call into action for EWS races. This 5.5 frame carries the Turq appointment, which is plenty burly enough to handle tail-gate shuttles and rugged trails, yet light and agile enough that you'll forget how durable the frame is. The SB5.5 Turq construction contains the highest quality carbon fiber that Yeti uses allowing it to precise layup the carbon.
E*THIRTEEN COMPONENTS LG1 Plus All-Terrain 29in Tire - 2018
SALE 50% Off $29.76 from $59.95
If we said your trails get a little damp, that would be an understatement. You're used to riding slick roots, wet rocks, and dank, loamy dirt packed with mossy patches, and so you're on the hunt for tires that can keep up with the trails that you call home. Designed for the post-work riders, and weekend warriors alike, e*thirteen components crafts the LG1 Plus All-Terrain 29in Tire for confidence and grip on trails that pack in the moisture more often than dry out. Unlike its LG1 Race counterpart, the LG1 Plus comes with a dual-compound construction that's better at all-around traction than unfailing stickiness, making it a smart choice for a range of conditions. Featuring e*thirteen's Enduro casing, the LG1 Plus is as prepared as its race-minded sibling to rail berms and switchbacks hard without folding over.
DONNELLY MXP Tire - Tubeless
SALE 39% Off $42.92 from $70.00
Designed for virtually any condition, the Donnelly MXP Tubeless Tire maximizes versatility for cyclocross racers encountering everything from moderate mud to grassy fields, hard-packed dirt to smooth pavement. This tubeless-ready tire sits at 33-millimeters wide, allowing you to drastically drop tire pressures for greater traction and bump compliance, regardless if you're cross racing or just putting in some training miles on your favorite stretch of back road. This all-around cyclocross tire features a more classic tread profile, except for a few modern updates like precise flex grooves along the center for course-conforming grip, alongside aggressive side knobs for added stability and acceleration out of corners.
ZIPP Tangente Speed R28 Tire - Clincher
SALE 46% Off $34.99
While Zipp has long held a stellar reputation for churning out aerodynamic wheels, you may be less familiar with the fact that this company also makes tires. First introduced in 2007, Zipp's tires were originally laser-focused on aerodynamics, which left a bit to be desired in the rolling resistance and handling categories. With the Tangente line, Zipp's focus has shifted to creating fast-rolling tires with supple grip to rail corners. The Tangente Speed R28 Clincher Tire boasts exceptional traction in both dry and wet conditions and a wide profile to roll smoothly over rough roads. Billed as a race-ready tire for days when the road isn't pristine, the Speed R28 utilizes a plush 220 TPI nylon casing and a beefy 28mm width to soak up the bumps.
SEALSKINZ Dragon Eye MTB Glove - Men's
SALE 66% Off $23.98
Hot days and rough trails are harder on your hands than your legs sometimes, and you can't afford to have things like missed shifts and raw, bleeding thumbs disrupting your hours on singletrack. The Sealskinz Dragon Eye MTB Glove takes a less-is-more approach with a sleek, padding-free design aimed at giving you grip and dexterity on the bars without boxing-glove bulk. The synthetic suede palm is responsible for grip, and it's backed up by an anti-slip liner to hold your hands in-place inside the glove. Added touches like articulated knuckles, Lycra fingers, and an improved thumb design work to give you the same freedom of movement you'd have without gloves, while the completely waterproof outer liner protects your hands from weather and wind.
RAPHA Classic Wind Check Jacket - Men's
SALE 69% Off $64.98 from $209.95
When your rides start early, and showers are in the forecast, don the Rapha Classic Wind Check Jacket and take to the tarmac with concerns of cool breezes brushed aside. This classic-styled jacket takes Rapha's traditional Classic Wind Jacket II and elevates its aesthetic with iconic style from the golden era of cycling, with a checkered flag design that wraps the torso, hinting at its 1960's flair, back when cyclists wore wool and were held as style icons. But the jacket isn't all form over function, and its DWR coated nylon construction proves it. The jacket breathes and moves with you, with a tailored cut designed just for being on the bike, hitting at the hip in the front, with a long drop-tail hem in the back to keep you covered from showers. Bonded seams and hems reduce the bulk for a smart, easy-to-pocket jacket, while a bonded lower-front pocket secures your valuables.
GORE WEAR C5 Partial Gore Windstopper Insulated Jacket - Men's
The C5 Partial Gore Windstopper Insulated Jacket from Gore Wear is a hybrid of sorts. It's slim and form-fitting enough to fit like a jersey, but it provides insulation and warmth that's typically reserved for heavier jackets. Gore places PrimaLoft Gold Insulation in critical areas that maximize warmth on cold days and chilly descents. It's very low-bulk insulation, so it won't interfere with your position while on the bike. Adding a barrier against the wind and precipitation, Gore fortifies this jacket with its own Windstopper membrane that's windproof, water-repellent, yet still extremely breathable. A tall, close-fitting collar further keeps cold drafts and precipitation from reaching your core.
