The GCN Sale Continues!
Aurum Expands its Range of Colors with the Presentation of the New Arctic White Magma
Aurum Magma Dresses in White at the Gates of European Winter
The high-performance bicycle brand created by Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso, introduces this new possibility when configuring any of the available builds, from Magma with Shimano Ultegra Di2 and Sram Force AXS to the most premium with the new Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 12 speed and Sram Red AXS.
White is joined to the iconic Glacial Blue and the classic Carbon Black; Arctic White.
Aurum maintains an elegant and exclusive line in the design and finish of its paintings, there are no patterns beyond the brand’s logos, the size of the frame and the UCI decal, the paint, with a touch of shine, is distributed evenly over the entire frame and fork surface.
Aurum continues to listen to its customers, expanding the product range in a staggered manner, first came the more accessible assemblies with Ultegra and Force and now the range of colors is expanded with this elegant Arctic White.

Syncros New Nanaimo & Campbell Bike Lights
Night time brings a whole new set of challenges and riding your favorite trail can be totally different in the dark. Our new Nanaimo and Campbell lights are packed full of features to keep you turning pedals after hours.
With the Northern Hemisphere entering the grip of Winter and Daylight Savings, night lights become a topic of interest again. For 2022, Syncros has developed a completely new range of lights for the consumer with multiple goals – integration, intelligent burntime and intelligent design.
Designed to integrate seamlessly with our Creston, Fraser and Hixon integrated cockpits, the Nanaimo light is mountable in a number of different ways. The light can also be mounted to a regular bar. Our engineers focused on designing a light with optimal power maintenance and burn time. Too often lights dip in power once they start to overheat. Then there are the multiple modes available to the rider, especially the light sensitive mode that automatically adapts to the ambient light to prolong battery life and give maximum visibility to other road users.
The great outdoors don’t close in the evening, be it road, MTB or gravel. The world can look completely different in the evening or early morning. Experience the trails and wildlife in an entirely new way with our new range of night lights.
We’ve focused on the areas that matter with these. Power output is designed to be steady and remain at full power for longer burn times without a dip in power. Similarly beam pattern and illumination is designed to light your way intelligently to maximize visibility on the trail.
We’ve also produced a range of mounting options for the front no matter what type of bar you run or accessory you want to have on too.
Similarly at the back we have utilized our multimount fixation system to allow you to run a light, fender and bag in any combination.
Enduro Bearings Continues Maxhit™ Line With New Bottom Bracket
Doubling-down on the recent Maxhit headset launch, Enduro expands their integrated-bearing component offerings with the Maxhit BB.
The next logical application for Enduro Bearing’s Maxhit technology, after the successful launch of the company’s new Zero-Stack headset, is their new Maxhit bottom brackets. Bicycle bottom brackets are known to be one of the most problematic wear components, primarily due to the limited space available for the bearings. Enduro’s patent-pending Maxhit bearing technology addresses weaknesses commonly seen with traditional BB components that utilize several parts within parts, including small-sized ball bearings that inevitably develop wear and corrosion issues over time.
Bottom brackets endure profound and intense forces transmitted through the crank spindle. To better absorb these forces, Enduro’s unique Maxhit design eliminates the aluminum bearing cups and increases the size of the 440C stainless-steel outer bearing race to actually become the BB shell interface. This patent-pending innovation allows for the use of considerably larger balls nested in much deeper bearing race grooves, providing more surface area to dramatically improve performance and durability.
Compared to industry standard, Maxhit BB bearing balls can have up to 8-times the mass and a larger bearing-race contact area to withstand more than double the force loads, leading to exponential increases in durability and performance. After months of Maxhit machine testing, Enduro is documenting a significant advantage in wattage savings compared to a range of leading brands also being tested. Already tested at over one million-test-cycles, the Maxhit bottom bracket has shown no signs of wear at all, while many other premium brand BBs have shown significant wear after a small fraction of that test duration. Enduro is so confident in the technology that Maxhit components include a lifetime guarantee – including against wear and corrosion – unheard of in an industry where most bearing suppliers only cover manufacturing defects for life.
“We knew Maxhit technology would be perfect for areas of high load on a bike,” says Matt Harvey, President and Founder of Enduro Bearings. “The headset was first because there are not as many standards, but we recognized straight away Maxhit would be a game-changer for bottom brackets as well.”
Another benefit of the larger balls found in Maxhit BB bearings is the ease of installation; for instance, preload can vary significantly from ‘very light’ to ‘very tight’ and still spin perfectly, unlike industry standard BB’s which must be carefully installed to the perfect torque specification. Increased bearing contact area of the Maxhit design can withstand significantly greater axial (side) load than traditional BB bearings, making the Maxhit an extremely forgiving, dealer and consumer-friendly, BB solution.
