New products from Prologo, Lake, Avia, Orbea, Ceepo, Jamis, Zipp, Profile, Scott and Specialized.

Coach AJ covers Interbike 2009.  Here are some of the new (and upgraded) items for 2010.

 

For those new triathletes that aren't in-the-know, Interbike is the largest North America bicycle tradeshow.  According to Interbike, the show offers 1000 suppliers, representatives from 4000 bicycle retail stores, and draws over 20000 annual total attendees.  All of this happens over 300,000 net square feet of exhibit space

Several saddles from Prologo have small ridges that keep you from sliding off the front of the saddle.

 

 
The CX 311C from Lake uses side mesh panels to help drain water out of the shoe. It also has a painted white carbon bottom to reflect road heat.

 

 
Avia came out with their entire line of shoes.

 

 
The Orbea Ora is in the middle of their line of tri bikes. It is a full carbon bike with a lifetime warranty.

 

 
Ceepo bikes are the official bike of Ironman. The new bikes in the range, Grace and Triumph are specifically designed for women.

 

 
The Xenith T2 from Jamis is their top end model. But they also make 3 other tri bikes that offer a great value.

 

 
Zipp’s entire line of wheels on display.

 

 
Profile has added a few new bars for 2010. The Volna has a collette system for adjusting the extensions, and the white color looks amazing.

 

 
The Scott Plasma has been a hot bike for years. The Plasma has four models to fit any rider’s budget.

 


 

The Specialized Transition remains the same in construction and specs, but there are now 9 sizes from XXS to XXL to fit everyone.
