Take four people to Interbike and you’ll get four different opinions about which are the top products. The good news is, we value our customers and their individual needs. Hopefully, with four sets of eyes, we’ll bring home new products that everyone can love.
My top picks start with Haibike’s full-suspension fat tire bike. I was also very impressed with the Copenhagen wheel. The VisiJax LED jackets were inventive, and the Thule T2 Pro makes carrying a fat tire doable. My last pick are the Smith helmets. I think they are a great pick for our discerning customer.
We all know that women drive major purchase decisions. Having Megan’s eyes on the floor helps us keep in tune with our most powerful buyer. Her top picks are the Xtracycle cargo bike, Ped-Perego toddler bike seat, Litelok, Luna’s Gluten Free bars, and the movement #MoreKidsOnBikes.
Tim came to Interbike for the Bosch training, and only spent a limited time on the showroom floor. Still, he was quick to pick his favorite: Haibike’s improved battery integration into the frame.
Dans #5 pick is the Sriracha Jersey from It’s In My Heart, #4 is the Urban Arrow Cargo E-bike, #3 Emerald Suspension Technology, #2 Spitzing Electric Bike, and he has a tie for his first place picks. Dan’s #1 is both the NS bike which is now available in the US, and the Haibike 27 plus.
For those of you that are interested, Dan also shared his Turkey Picks…a silly face shield, bolted on cable lock with GPS tracker, vibrating foam roller, and “ugly haptic feedback foam helmets”.
As you can tell, there were a plethera of products on display. Our feet are still sore and our voices horse from talking and walking through the overwhelming showroom floors.
Some of these top picks are already making their way to an eSpokes store near you. Keep posted for product reviews as the products arrive in the stores.
