Sea Otter Classic Day 1 Wrap
The Ready, Set, Pedal team is live this year at the Sea Otter Classic. We're on the lookout for the latest innovations and new releases in kid bikes and accessories, but also on the prowl for cool Mom and Dad stuff as well.
Here were some of our favorites from day 1:
Mondraker is on the rise in the US.
We're really excited about what Mondraker is offering across it's entire kids and adult line-up for 2023. More inventory is coming available across the US in the next few months and we are offering the full line-up. The Mondraker Leader 20 inch is one of our favorite kids sidewalk and light trail bikes. The quality and workmanship really comes out when you see these bikes in person. At sub 20lb weight, it's one of the lightest kid bikes in the 20 inch category.
Next up, is the Mondraker F-Play 24" Full suspension electric bike. This is the Ferrari of kids electric bikes. Designed to assist your little shredder on the ups so they can slay the downs. It comes with all the features and components you'd see on an adult Mondraker. We have a huge backlog of pre-orders on these right now and will be fulfilling them before school is out. Order yours today.
Marin Youth Bikes 24" Rift. Marin brought their Rift lineup to the event. It's a great looking bike line we've admired. The Rift Zone 24" has a full suspension system that includes a RockShox Monarch R shock in the rear and a RockShox Recon RL fork in the front.
Gravel Bikes for Mom and Dad are Everywhere.
At every booth we came across a new gravel bike emerged. Diamondback has really stepped up their gravel game and we couldn't get enough of the custom paint scheme on the new Haanjo below. If you rode in the 90's you probably have fond memories of DBs. Diamondback is truly back, now under new ownership and management and we're really excited to be a part their journey going forward. We're now carrying their full kids and adult Diamondback lineup.
KTM bikes has entered the US market and we love this killer black and orange KTM X-Strada Gravel bike with orange tires. It's almost a shame they'd get dirty.
Stay-tuned. More news from the Sea Otter exhibition to come from day 2 and 3.
