Earlier this month, the Interbike trade show took over the rocky singletrack of Boulder City, Nevada, as well as the recirculated air of Mandalay Bay's conference center in Las Vegas. For five days, producers of bicycles and related products proudly displayed their latest and greatest wares. We tested scores on the trail, before digging into detail on the trade show floor. Here are our six favorite accessories from the show, all of which are coming soon to (or are already at) a bike shop near you.
Michelin StarGrip Tire
Wet, snow, oil, or ice: This Michelin city tire can conquer it all. The star tread, originally designed as a shoe sole grippy enough not to slip on an oiled stainless steel plate, gives studded tire security. Star-shaped lugs made of snow tire rubber bite into terrain from pavement to dirt, even in the coldest temps. High-density nylon inside prevents punctures from hidden obstacles.
