Best New Exhibitor: Eyewater Bicycles
Seattle’s Eyewater Bicycles won the NAHBS equivalent of the “Rookie of the Year Award” with this carbon fiber road bike. Corey Lowe, the man behind the brand, used to build carbon fiber frames for Parlee, Cannondale, Specialized, but now he builds for himself. “I make bikes that strive for the same romanticized attachment that many of us feel toward the hand-built steel and titanium frames of the world,” he told us. “We look at those and see the gorgeous quality and craftsmanship. I think carbon has that same potential and I’m building bikes with that same mentality.” Lowe uses a unique tube-to-tube construction process that produces super-clean results free of filler, wrinkles, voids, and other imperfections that commonly occur when working with carbon fiber. His process also allows for a lot of flexibility in terms of customization. To show-off the beauty of the material, the frames are finished raw and with minimal graphics.
