Rapha launched a new skincare line that is specific for cyclists’ use. Handmade in the UK, the Performance SKincare uses ingredients from the herbs on Mount Ventoux. The new skincare line is composed of chamois cream, winter embrocation and soap.

The Rapha soap is a combination of rich, natural oils. The soap has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities. It comes in lavender, rosemary, lemon, cypress and other natural herbs that can give you a thorough cleaning not only for your skin but even for your Rapha gloves and mitts.

The Rapha Chamois Cream is used for hydration and to prevent chafing of the skin during daily rides. Made with patchouli, cistus and altar cedar, it has been tested by Rapha riders of more than 14 hours.

2011 colnago c59 italia limited edition 1   2011 Colnago C59 Italia Limited Edition

The main attraction at Colnago’s booth at this year’s InterBike was the 2011 Limited Edition C59 Italia.

The Colnago 2011 limited edition C59 Italia was made to recognize the Colnago C59, thus limiting the C59 Italia to a symbolic number of 59. As you may know, in past years, Colnago released other limited bikes: one in collaboration with Ferrari (CF 7), and the Colnago Master (celebrating 55 years of Colnago), which was last year’s limited model on display.

On display was 1 of 59 of the 2011 C59 Italia limited editions. With its Di2 battery pack concealed, the highly limited Colnago is sleek in design. Do you want to know where the battery is placed? The only way to know is if you buy one from Colnago, informed Colnago.

Everything about the limited Colnago C59 Italia shines, including the small section of brake cable exposed (resembles metal piping)…

2011 hope components 1 300x201   2011 Hope Integrated CassetteFor early 2011, Hope introduces its integrated cassette with a retail price of £150. The new cassette has an integrated free hub. It’s designed to be matched with Hope Pro 2 and Pro 3 hub wheels. What makes the cassette stand out is that the free hub body and sprockets are already part of each other.

As per Hope, the total weight of a Pro 2 wheel with the integrated cassette is 20g lighter than that of SRAM XX fitted sprockets and free hub. The new Hope cassette is definitely more affordable and you won’t have to worry about free hub splines any longer. There is also no need for a lockring to hold the sprockets. You now have the option to use a 9T cog, extending your cassette’s range and you can also drop a chainring from the front to even go lighter.

The 2011 Hope Integrated Cassette has a…
