March 22/21 11:39 am - Register for Taiwan Online Product Launch


Posted by Editor on 03/22/21
 

The Taipei Cycle Show has been a cornerstone of the bike industry for decades. Traditionally taking place in the early Spring, it is a manufacturers' show, meaning that many of the primary companies that make the bikes and components you ride bearing name brands come from the companies exhibiting here.

Taiwan is one of the backbones of the cycling industry, and I have attended both the Taipei Show and visited factories around the island for over a quarter of a century. Unfortunately, for the second year in a row, the pandemic has meant that the in-person, physical show has been cancelled.

TAITRA, the Taiwanese trade promotion organization, has worked with the Bureau of Trade to produce an online showcase of some of the brands that would usually take part in the Taipei Show and, unlike normal years when only the industry can participate, it is open to the public.

Taking place on March 25th (Thursday) at 1:00 pm Eastern (10:00 am Pacific), you can register for the event Here. You will be sent an access code.

The companies participating include big brands such as KMC, Maxxis, Novatec, Dizo bikes and Pacific Cycles.


KMC, the market leading chain manufacturer, will focus on its e-bike solution. E-bike riders shift gears very frequently and require chains that can handle extreme loads of torque. So, here comes the KMC e-bike solution, which includes both chainrings and chains. The chainring roller seats between teeth are perfectly matched to chain rollers for exceptional component engagement. The benefits of this unparalleled "Chain Mate" are higher power transmission efficiency and longer component lifespan.

Maxxis, one of the top 10 tire brands in the world, will introduce its latest gravel tire--Receptor and new generation MTB tire--Shorty Gen 2 to delight the audience. Receptor is a perfect option for riders who want to go the distance on pavements as well as off the beaten path. Shorty Gen 2 is a new knob layout based on feedback from World Cup DH and EWS riders.

Novatec, one of the top five bicycle hub suppliers in the world, will present the G24 carbon fibre wheelset for gravel bikes. G24 is the first ever carbon fibre gravel wheelset. It comes with the newest hookless and tubeless ready design. In addition to G24, you will also see the M30 carbon fibre MTB enduro wheelset; the first carbon fibre MTB wheelset for endurance and all mountain bikes.

Among emerging Taiwanese brands, Dizo holds a strong position in the road bike industry. Dizo derives its name from the Taiwanese homophone "customized", indicating that its products are made in Taiwan and tailored to customers' needs by featuring unique and bespoke designs. In this session, Dizo's brand new gravel model, Grover, will make its debut. Whether you prefer comfortable bikepacking or exciting races, this bike allows you to easily tackle tricky terrain and longer, multi-day off-road rides.

The last presenter at the event will be Pacific Cycles, a bicycle manufacturer that has been in the business for over 40 years. Pacific will present two collections, including its award-winning iF series, Moove (e-pedelec) and Micah, which is designed for kids from 5 to 15 years old suffering from cerebral palsy.
