New Forekaster
Brand: Maxxis
Distributor: Extra UK

The original Forekaster was designed as a wet-weather option for XC, while the new version is aimed directly at modern low-travel (100mm-130mm) trail bikes – aka the “downcountry” segment. Designed to be a “Goldilocks” tyre, the new Forekaster rolls fast but also provides solid cornering and braking traction in a wide range of track conditions. The new Forekaster fits into the Maxxis mountain line between XC options, which prioritize rolling speed, and gravity-focused treads, which emphasize cornering traction and braking. When an Aspen isn’t enough tire but a Minion is too much, choose the new Maxxis Forekaster.

RRP: From £59.99

Maxhit Helmets

Distributor: Extra UK

The brand new Maxhit Enduro helmets are entirely machined in 440C stainless steel and are guaranteed for life.

This helps them withstand more than double the force loads to help increase durability and performance. The Maxhit system is also available in a bottom bracket – another area of ​​the bike that usually takes a lot of punishment and will arrive in late summer 2022.

RRP: £119.99
