Home New Arrivals
A huge prebook order has arrived from Troy Lee Designs, so we are now stocked up on the newest TLD gear.
The A1 All-Mountain Helmet is a top of the line helmet for the XC/Enduro, Trail, and All Mountain rider. TLD helmets are known for their superior protection, and the A1 is no different. This helmet exceeds CPSC safety standards and CE EN certifications, while still weighing an average of 320 grams with maximum ventilation.
Of course all helmets are designed with familiar TLD signature moto-inspired components and graphics that we always love.
Downhill riders everywhere know about the superior protection and comfort the TLD D3 helmet offers.
New colors featured in this latest shipment from Fox Racing!
The Renthal Kevlar Push-On Grips gives the rider a super tacky feel, with excellent shock absorption qualities. The Kevlar® brand resin content of this compound makes these grips super durable for the long term. Price is $22 per pair.
Some comfortable SPD cycling shoes from Scott Sports have arrived. Easy fit and secure adjustments with a BOA ratchet and closure system, plus good grip on the soles for traction on rocks or loose dirt.
Tani, owner of The Path Bike Shop, says the Elite Boa is the most comfortable SPD shoe he's tried on.
It's the first enduro race-specific wheelset and tire system - the Mavic Crossmax Enduro WTS.
This wheelset has different rims widths front and rear to accommodate different tire widths and tread patterns. Front and rear wheel and tire each offer their own unique features to offer the ultimate combination of grip, handling, stability and responsiveness. Available in 26" or 650b/27.5" (as shown).
The 2014 Scott Genius LT 710 is an all-mountain bike with a super light HMF Carbon frame. It's got 170mm of travel front and rear, and the rear reduces to 135mm in 'Traction Control' mode. In fact, this bike has multiple travel/geometry settings, thanks to the custom dual-travel Fox Nude shock.
This size medium weighs in at 30lbs on our scale. MSRP is $5549.
Ride the tire that pro downhill racer Steve Smith rode in multiple World Cup and World Championship race wins.
The Schwalbe Magic Mary uses new Super Gravity technology, which makes it lighter but still extremely sidewall-stable and super resistant to flats. This is the tire for loose or wet conditions, it's an intermediate profile tire with chunky shoulder knobs for increased braking traction, cornering grip, and great overall handling on downhill trails.
It's the new 2014 Pivot Firebird 27.5 SLX. This is your enduro racing, all-mountain riding, long-travel trail bike, now designed with 27.5" wheels. A slack head angle, low BB height, custom Fox suspension, and 27.5" wheel size all make this bike tops in terms of handling.
MSRP is $4399.
Here's a lightweight little gem at the shop! The 2014 Giant XTC Advanced SL 29 0 (pictured, right).
Full SRAM XX1 1x11-speed drivetrain, SRAM XX brake system, Giant's own P-XCR0 carbon wheelset, and the RockShox SID World Cup XX 29er fork with 15mm thru-axle and Pushloc lockout on the front. The cockpit is built up with Giant's Contact SLR carbon stem and bar and a Fi'zi:k Tundra 2 saddle with titanium rails.
This medium weighs in at 19 pounds without pedals. MSRP is $8250.
Looking for 27.5" wheels instead? There's an XTC for that too.
The 2014 Giant XTC Advanced 27.5 1 (pictured, left) is a super light, ultra efficient hardtail, perfect for this race season.
This one's got some great part specs too: SRAM XX1 1x11-speed drivetrain, Avid X0 disc brakes, and RockShox SID RL with 15mm thru-axle and Pushloc lockout. MSRP is $5000.
We got a huge order from Speedplay, a wide variety of their clipless pedal lineup. The lineup includes models for either road cyclists or mountain bikers.
Many cyclists are fans of Speedplay because of their adjustability; some models offer a wide float range, others offer an adjustment where you can choose either a micro-adjustable float or a fixed position. This adjustability in float can help minimize the potential for knee strain.
The 2014 Intense 951 EVO was redesigned from the ground up to utilize 27.5" wheel size. Aggressive geometry, 8.5" of travel, and a slack 62.5 degree head angle inspires confidence at fast speed and through steep, technical terrain.
Be ready for the 2014 downhill race season with this bike, made in the USA. Pictured here is a size medium (we also have another medium in black). MSRP is $6300.
It's another great product from Rokform!
The new Rokform Smartphone Handlebar Mount keeps your iPhone 4 & 5, or Samsung Galaxy S3 & S4 phone secure on your bike handlebars with a locking mount and a security strap for extra assurance. This mount also has the ease of being able to take the phone on and off your bike quickly and easily. MSRP is $29.
Requires a Rokform V.3 Mountable Case or Universal Adapter, which we also have in stock for all iPhone and Galaxy models.
Rokform is made in the USA! Support our local economy with a great company based right here in Santa Ana, CA.
Carbon downhill greatness is here! 2014 Kona Supreme Operator carbon frames with Fox DHX RC4 shock, in sizes medium and large. MSRP is $2699.
This frame features 200mm of travel, 12x157 rear axle, and a 6061 rear triangle and alloy rockers with a lightweight hollow carbon bridge that’s three times stiffer than the previous Operator. Enjoy the plush ride.
Many of our staff here at the shop also trail run and hike, and Altra Zero Drop trail running shoes will help you do both in comfort. That's why we love and use them.
Altra's foot-shaped toe box provides maximum foot relaxation and speed, and the Zero Drop™ platform gives you greater stabilization and better running form.
HT Components PA12A are lightweight platform pedals made from a strong nylon composite material. They're fully sealed, rebuildable, thin, and offer the same grip as a traditional aluminum pedal. Pick your color: red, green, blue, yellow, pink, black, or white. MSRP is $58.
The new 2014 Pivot Mach 6 has been really popular. We had received a few a couple of months ago, but they were all pre-sold. Finally, we have some to show again. Size small in black, size medium in blue. XT/XTR build - MSRP is $6499
This recent release from Pivot Cycles has been in development for over two years with a lot of excitement brewing behind its release. The Mach 6 isn’t like anything else in the Pivot line-up. It’s an all new bike designed to optimize the 27.5” wheel platform and to take on the growing Enduro racing and riding scene. Got technical terrain? Bring it on.
It's the Schwalbe Rock Razor Super Gravity, TL-ready mountain bike tire in 27.5 x 2.35.
This semi-slick tire is brand new to the Gravity and Enduro scenes. Schwalbe suggests this tire as an option especially for the rear wheel and for very fast, dry trails. The tire tread is very low in the center for low rolling resistance, while the sides have big cornering knobs for confidence and grip in the turns.
The 2014 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt combines 120mm of travel, alloy frame, 68.5 degree head angle, and 27.5” wheels to deliver a great mix of intuitive XC capabilities and pure playful trail fun.
Rocky Mountain has developed a geometry that lends a more playful feeling to riding cross-country. They designed a short 426mm rear end on the Thunderbolt, tucking the 27.5” wheel in close to the rider for lots of maneuverability and agility. Also, the top tube has been lengthened from traditional Rocky Mountain designs to accommodate for today's shorter stems and wider bars. This is a super fun bike for balancing both XC and trail riding styles.
With four different models and build specs in the lineup, there's a Thunderbolt for every budget.
Here it is, the first of our Thunderbolt demo bikes now available to rent! It's the 2014 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 750 (pictured, left). This one's a medium, and we'll be getting additional sizes soon. Stay tuned...
Your chance is coming very soon to try out a Thunderbolt in ANY size - come out to the FREE Rocky Mountain Demo Day on Saturday February 1st, 2014 at The Path Bike Shop Live Oak location in Trabuco Canyon, CA.
Here's a pretty cool new gadget, the Prestaflator air compressor bicycle tire inflator. Fits both Presta or Schrader tire valves, and it's designed for both MTB and Road tires with a wide range of pressure requirements.
It uses a pistol grip trigger with an attached pressure gauge, a screw on inflation hose with a threaded Presta slip-on head (which can be unscrewed to allow for the hose to work with Schrader valves), and has a quick connect coupler for hooking up to an air compressor.
Weighing in at 13 ounces, it's also a great value at $59.95 which includes gauge and a bonus tire lever.
