Co-op Cycles Generation e1.1 & e1.2 Electric Bikes

The Co-op Cycles Generation e1.1 electric bike provides pedal-assist power up to 20 mph. It has a rear cargo rack, a step-through frame, and wide tires for stability over paved and unpaved terrain. It has a range of 30-40 miles with pedal assist.

The Generation e1.2 builds off the e1.1's design but adds a removable front rack and a battery capacity of 672-watt hours for a range of 40-50 miles with pedal assist.

The removable battery comes with a lock to secure it while parked away from home. Other specs include hydraulic brakes, built-in front, and rear lights, and of course, a kickstand.

Co-op Cycles CTY 2.1 Step-Through Bike

The Co-op Cycles CTY 2.1 sports city bike details include a sloped crossbar for stepping over and riser handlebars with wider grips for ergonomics. It's a 16-speed with a 2 x 8 drivetrain on a Shimano 46/30T crankset and runs a Shimano Altus group. It has an aluminum frame with 700c wheels, disc brakes, and a suspension fork with 63mm of travel.

There's room for add-ons, too. The frame has mounts for a bag on the top tube, a water bottle, mounts for fenders, and a rear rack.

Co-op Cycles ADV 2.2 Bike

This 20-speed gravel grinder has an aluminum frame and carbon fork, for a balance of durability and weight savings. It comes equipped with gravel-specific components, including the Shimano GRX 2 x 10 drivetrain and the GRX Shadow Plus rear derailleur, which reduces chain slap and noise on choppy terrain.

The ADV 2.2 also has Tektro mechanical disc brakes 12-degree flared handlebars, and rides atop WTB Nano Comp 700c x 40mm tires with a hybrid tread that's sleeker in the center and knobby on the edges.

Co-op Cycles REV 20 Kids’ Bike

This bike is all about transitions. It comes with two brake systems, which provide young riders the opportunity to graduate to hand brakes while relying on more familiar coaster brakes as a fallback. Similarly, it comes with training wheels which can be removed once your kid is ready for life on two wheels. The aluminum frame makes it lighter for kids to handle and the handlebar is a BMX-style setup.

Thousand Chapter MIPS Bike Helmet

This helmet by Thousand has urban styling. It's complete with a visor and has the in-mold construction and MIPS safety rating you’d want in a road or MTB helmet. It has eight vents to airflow channels, a magnetic chinstrap closure, and a lock channel for securing the helmet together with your bike.

Additionally, a 30-lumen magnetic taillight turns on automatically when magnetically attached to the helmet and has a 1-hour runtime (2 hours if flashing).

Ergon SMC Sport Gel Saddle — Men's

This MTB gel saddle balances relief from pressure with a range of motion. It's designed with a large contact area, Orthopedic Comfort Foam, and a composite shell built around chromoly rails. (S/M fits sit-bone width of 9–12cm; M/L fits sit-bone width of 12–16cm.)

Maxxis Assegai F60 3CT/EXO/TR Tire

The Assegai is the signature tire of World Cup champion, Greg Minnaar. It's a tubeless tire with a tall tread for cutting through loam while still offering traction on roots and rock. Sized for 30-50mm rims, the tires are also bolstered with EXO Protection to resist cuts and scuffs on the sidewalls.

Maxxis uses its 3C MaxxTerra rubber here, which is an intermediate compound. The layout puts firmer knobs on the centerline and softer knobs on the sides.

Electra Townie 7D Step-Through Bike

Made with comfort in mind, this Electra Townie has a step-through frame, semi-slick 26″ tires, platform pedals, and a plush saddle. Its geometry allows a rider to sit upright for a heads-up view while providing full leg extension, and a low center of gravity that lets you put both feet down at a stop.

The bike runs seven gears with a Shimano Revo shifter and rear derailleur and stops with linear-pull brakes.

Bontrager Solstice MIPS Helmet

Bontrager positions the Solstice MIPS bike helmet as a multipurpose, value pick for riders taking to trails and town commutes. It includes a one-handed adjustment system, a magnetic chinstrap fastener, and a removable visor. Inside, there are recessed channels for moving airflow as well as moisture-wicking (and washable) helmet pads for keeping your head cool and dry.

Smith Engage 2 MIPS Bike Helmet

Updated for 2023, the Smith Engage 2 MIPS bike helmet includes more safety tech for everyday trail rides. The addition of Zonal Koroyd claims to offer more kinetic energy absorption upon impact than traditional helmet materials. It builds upon the helmet's MIPS Brain Protection System that reduces rotational forces caused by angled impacts to the head.

Smith tweaked the dial-adjust fit and extended back coverage for a more custom feel. The in-mold construction combined with low-profile lining and webbing should create a closer, performance-minded fit. It has 20 fixed vents, including sunglass-friendly front channels, and a two-position visor.

Wahoo Fitness KICKR Core Bike Trainer

The 2 lb. flywheel offers a range of inertia to resemble outdoor riding conditions and can handle up to 1,800 watts of power with +/-2% accuracy. It can also adjust resistance to simulate up to a 16% incline.

The KICKR Core can juggle three simultaneous Bluetooth connections so you can connect to a screen and performance sensors. LED indicators let you know when it's powered on and connected.

For a deeper simulation experience, the trainer can pair with a KICKR Climb grade simulator or KICKR Headwind smart fan. Additionally, it's compatible with third-party power meters and the Zwift online platform.

Ortlieb Back-Roller Classic Panniers – Pair

Protect your laptop or weekend rations with these waterproof Ortlieb Back-Roller Classic rear-rack bike panniers. They use coated polyester fabric and a roll-top closure to keep out water. The pair has a 40-liter capacity. Each bag has an interior pocket, reflective patches, and a shoulder carry strap.

The panniers use a QL2.1 mounting system to fit racks with up to a 16mm tube diameter and come with reduction adapters for 8-, 10-, and 12mm tube diameters.

Race Face Chester Pedals

Race Face Chester pedals sport new traction treads on a concave platform with 8 replaceable hex traction pins on each side. Inside is a sealed steel axle with cartridge bearings and DU bushings.
