Back and ready for the cyclocross season for 2011 is the Ibis Hakkalügi. With its greatly reduced weight, the frame features enhanced accelerations and reduced tedious shouldering during repetitive dismounts. Partly due to the sleek tube joints, the Hakkalugi is constructed as a carbon fiber monocoque structure.

Light weight and uncompromising strength are guaranteed by the entire frame, which is not only made with pre-impregnated carbon fiber sheet but also hand-rolled around silicone forms. Moreover, the frame was put and thoroughly baked into a steel mold to achieve unified structure.

Ready to tackle dirt roads, trail rides, and the severity of cyclocross is the 2011 Ibis Hakkalugi Cyclocross Frame. It is available in six sizes from 47 to 61cm and in two colors, Black Lung and Phlegmish Yellow. Required for the frame is a Campagnolostyle Hiddenset headset.

Oakley has a new item for mountain biking for 2011, which is the Factory glove. The minimalist slip-on design makes the glove look too weak for hard trail riding and its soft and thin material is something expected from a lightweight driving glove. However, the glove is surprisingly durable.

Sufficient airflow is provided by the lightweight fabric of the Factory. Through this, the hands of the rider are kept cool and free from dank sweat. With the thin material, riders can handle the bars with a nice feel. One amazing feature of the glove is a soft terry cloth nose-wipe on the thumb.

Durable, comfortable, and unbelievably functional, the 2011 Oakley Factory Glove is ideal for mountain biking and XC races. It comes in six color options with Wade Simmons and Brian Lopes signature editions. It is incredibly affordable as well.
