Another year, another Sea Otter Classic for the books. Back in full, post-COVID, swing, there were some 900 brands vying for our attention while the California sun wore us down over at Leguna Seca Raceway venue.
It was far too much for one person to take in, so while our North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook, provided us with round-ups of the latest and greatest she saw, I also put together a top 10 list of unique things that caught my attention.
Some new brands, some small brands, some big brands, and some futuristic brands, you get the gist. Enjoy!
3T Exploro RaceMax Italia Gravel bike
Available to the public now is this limited edition the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato– inspired 3T Exploro RaceMax Italia Gravel bike for anyone looking to match their Lamborghini.
Lamborghini selected Italian bike brand 3T for this collaboration to celebrate the release of its new super sports car, the Huracan Sterrato. 3T makes its high-end carbon frames in Presezzo, Italy, while Lamborghini produces its high end cars some 235km away in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy.
If the $15,000 price tag for this limited edition bike makes you run out the showroom, you’ll be happy to know there is an entry level Explore RaceMax build for $5,299 Euros. Labeled as their all-out speed machine, you can fit 35-to-42mm 700c tires as well as up to 61mm wide 650b tires to tackle just about any dirt road.
Meant to be aero, you don’t get a round seatpost, thus the frame is not dropper-post compatible. No place for fenders or racks either, but you can fit two large water bottle. In person, one can really appreciate the craftsmanship and details, especially when it’s next to this bright orange Lamborghini Urus Performante that retails for $260,676. Geez…
Altangle Hanger Connect
Labeled as the “world’s smallest and versatile bike stand,” the altangle stand can be attached securely to many support structures that are round, rectangular and some flat surfaces as long as the 3” jaw fits.
The stand measures 14”x6”x2” and weighs just three pounds.
Once clamped, there are 4 points of rotation that the user can engage by quick-release pull pins.
Clamp your gravel or road bike anywhere you go. We were also told this stand can hold an e-bike as long as it weighs less than 55lbs. Just make sure the structure you clamped your bike onto can hold the weight.
Seems like an excellent repair stand idea for those…
