Interbike Day 3 On the Show Floor – Part 2

Lots of action in the fat-bike space at the show on Wednesday. Here are more pix of what we saw. Many of these pictures are of prototypes or early production items. Look for more info on all these products in the coming weeks as we learn more about availability, final specs and pricing.

    Did X-Fusion give you any idea on the price of the Revel?

    Weight on the Risse?

      Ballpark here folks but the X-Fusion is in the $1899 range. When we get final, production numbers we’ll let you know! Look for it in about 6 months.

      The Risse can be set up several different ways most common is about 6 pounds.

    That Stan’s rim has summertime funtime written all over it! Even if it was 500g in full production mode, I’d be into that. And my god that X-fusion fork is pretty sweet. I’ve heard nothing but good reports about X-fusion, but I have yet to ride any of their products.

    Steal that gold fork for me. Handsome reward.

    I was hoping for Stans to go a tad wider to keep the same tire profile on my 4″ Escalators

      Once Stan’s does the 52mm version they will be working on a wider rim. Don’t discount the narrower rim though. With the lower sidewall of the rim tires behave a bit differently.

    Bring me back that Boo

    • Sven Haamer September 20, 2013 at 11:32 am #

      Sorry, Tony, you will just have to travel with me to Fort Collins! Should be a great trip!

    Krampuuuuus oof, I’m sorry I have just ……oh I probably shouldn’t write that. Um self custardised?

    Stan: Add 30mm and call me back!

  8. JYB September 20, 2013 at 9:28 am #

    I think that the Stan’s rims are on the money. Anything between 47-60mm would be sweet for the majority of the year. It would rock if eventually they made a narrow (50-60mm at sub 500g) and a wider option. I’d buy both! I don’t see huge snowfall in VA, so I’d love to have a proper tubeless trail-worthy rim fo’ sho’.

    That X-fusion fork looks awesome. Glad to see someone is making a fatbike suspension fork, even if i can’t afford it.

    Am I the only one that noticed the Snowshoe tire is being demo’d on a drilled out Mongoose Beast rim?

  11. Ted September 25, 2013 at 9:46 am #

    Stans should roll that 52mm rim to 29″ diamater.

  12. Ken Arnett November 14, 2013 at 5:13 pm #

    Lets hope that a Final rim is produced in the 75-85 mm range! Any update on availability?
