The popular BMX racing “Flight Series” is back from Redline for 2011, and not much has changed since last year.

In total, 9 different 2011 Redline Flight bmx bikes are available: the Pro XXL, Pro XL, Pro, Expert, Expert XL, Mini, Junior, Micro, and Pro 24. As you can see, Redline made sure the series had a bike to accommodate all sizes of riders.

All the 2011 Redline Flight bmx bikes feature R6 Aluminum for the frame and fork plus 3D Dropouts (expect the Flight Micro). Components mainly consist of Redline parts, but the forks on the Pro and Expert models are from Answer.

Redline’s team colors, black, red and white, are throughout, and all should be available shortly at Redline retailers.

Making its first debut last year, the Fuji Feather makes its way back for 2011.

Essentially, the Fuji 2011 Feather is the same as the 2010 with minor tweaks. Those changes are apparent in the colors available and metal clips to route the cables. (Last year, plastic zip ties were used.)

When comparing the 2011 Fuji Feather to last year’s, its colors are almost day and night. When asked why the Feather features more “stealth” colors, Fuji said the Japanese distributor had a lot of say on the colors, since the Fuji Feather is very popular in Japan.

Releasing in red, white, sparkling gray and black, retail price will be around $650.

2011 continental tires 1 300x200   2011 Continental Tires: Der Kaiser, Der Baron, Rubber QueenMore 2011 Continental tires were revealed for all-mountain riding and long travel use at Interbike 2010. These were the Der Kaiser, Der Baron and Rubber Queen tires. The Der Kaiser and Der Baron tires share tire height of 2.5″ and tire width of 2.3″. Aimed to cater to all-mountain enthusiasts, the Der Baron uses Black Chilli rubber compound. This allows the tire to be ready for damp trails and greasy roads. The Der Baron was also known as the Rain King last year.

The Black Chilli compound is a soft rubber of the best kind. It is mainly for race use and it’s notable that despite it being soft and sticky, it shows great resistance to tearing. This makes the rubber last longer instead of easy wear. All tires that use Black Chilli are handmade in Germany, at the Korbach Continental factory.

The Der Kaiser is a tire made for dry…

2011 will bring with it an altered Cinelli Vigorelli colorway–but it will only release to the Western Hemisphere. This includes United States, Canada, Mexico and South America.

Outside the areas mentioned, the 2011 Cinelli Vigorelli will be available for purchase in the 2010 color scheme.

The colors on the Cinelli 2011 Vigorelli are inspired by the 1970 Cinelli logo. To capture a “stealth” look, the main color used was black.
