The Latest Mountain Bike Tech From The Taipei Cycle Show 2016


The chances are that much of your mountain bike was made in Taipei. So, safe to say the Taipei Cycle Show is THE place to spot new gear. GMBN roving reporter Simon Richardson takes a look.

The Taipei Cycle Show is the place to spot the newest tech. Established brands, new brands and local OEM manufacturers meet to show off their latest innovations. There was plenty on show, too. Simon spotted a wireless dropper post, got hands on with Aaron Gwin’s new brakes, found out about the development of crankbrothers’ latest pedals – the Stamp, and, saw Maxxis’ expanding range of tyres. The range is expanding to include Plus sized tyres.
