SpeedX Leopard Pro is the first smart aero road bike—a competition level, high-performance bike with affordable, advanced technology. The bicycle frame uses only the finest carbon composites in the world. Together with FIBERTEK®, proprietary methods and technologies stack the T1000 military-grade carbon fiber with 207 folded layers, which ultimately leads to a phenomenally light, 1.2kg frame that’s 1.5 times stiffer. A smart bike fitting system helps customers measure the correct bike frame size. A mobile app allows the user to join or create a cycling club.

SHR Flex is a frontal head restraint safety system for professional and recreational racecar competitors—protecting them from severe or fatal upper neck/basilar skull fracture injuries in high-impact crashes, while providing unprecedented comfort and mobility during normal driving. It is a breakthrough, patent-pending design in an area of race safety that has not seen significant innovation in nearly 20 years. It is the only restraint system that is low-profile during normal driving, but then uses the kinematics of the impact to kick into a high position only when protection is needed.

The problem with traditional backpacks is that they must be taken off the user’s back in order to access the contents. The solution—world-wide, patented, rotation180° technology, allowing the contents of the backpack to be accessed without taking it off, via an integrated, hidden, belt pack that can be rotated to the front of the body. The rotation180° Panorama backpack has a door flap on the side with a Fidlock magnetic buckle. When the Fidlock magnetic buckle is released, the belt pack can be rotated to the front of the body and opened immediately. The belt pack can be filled with frequently used items such as a camera, GPS devices, binoculars, phones, nature identification books, tablets, food, etc. The backpack has additional room for personal gear such as clothing and the ability to hold a hydration reservoir.

The Bell Super 2R offers comprehensive and adaptable protection for the all-mountain bicycle rider through its game-changing removable chin bar; lower head coverage; and a performance-driven feature that allows the rider to tackle any terrain with confidence. With this advancement of the bicycle’s capabilities comes the need for equipment that can protect the rider for the trails they’re now able to ride. The Super 2R features a removable chin bar so that when a rider is climbing up the mountain, they’re able to have an open-face helmet for maximum cooling and ventilation. When the rider is ready to descend, they are able to mount the chin bar with three, easily attached buckles for the protection of a full-face helmet.
