New Sim Works Nissen Cable Stainless Housing Colors $29

Looking to add some color to your build? The Stainless Outer Cable from Nissen is now available in three cheerful new colors. The Japanese housing company, Nissen, made three new colors for Sim Works: Mulberry Lemonade with a Spearmint garnish.

The outer diameter is 4mm, and you can use a 1.2mm inner cable.  Because of the increase of disc brake bicycles, a diversification of cable handling, and the usage of full outer cable, Sim Works provides you a total length of 3m (a regular length is 2m mostly), so you should be able to cable your entire bike with one roll.

OneUp Components Thick and Thin Grips $24.50 USD

With grips, one size doesn’t fit all. This is why OneUp expanded their grip lineup with two new grip models to give riders more choice.

The Thick Grips are 35mm diameter at their thickest and 32.5mm at their thinnest point. They’re designed to maximize grip and minimize arm pump by giving you extra cushioning, a softer compound and added features for a fully locked in feel. They have a subtle palm bulge and ridges on the underside to fit in the creases of your fingers.

The Thin Grips are 29mm diameter. The low-profile design maximizes bike feel and control. Simple.

SQlab SQ-Glove Series 49.95 – 69.95 €

The first glove series from SQlab is characterized by the specifically developed size concept, which for the first time not only considers hand size but also hand width – to create a perfect fit for every hand.

The idea to put the seams to the outside stems from Formula 1 gloves. It improves the feel of the handlebars because you won‘t have to grip on the side seams. But especially the fingertips are clean on the inside, without the (invisible but usually annoying) accumulation of seams and threads that like to get on and under the fingernails.

A thoughtful cuff slanted and long enough to give the glove the support it needs in any situation while being as short as possible to avoid heat build-up.

Head over to SQlab to learn more about these new glove offerings and their sizing system.
