Radar Roundup: Specialized Adventure Returns?, New Pike, Nukeproof Scout, MYTHOS ELIX, and Brooks Take Care

Our Radar Roundup compiles products and videos from the ‘net in an easy-to-digest format. Read on below for today’s findings…

Specialized and Fjällräven’s Cargo Solutions

You might recall Specialized’s “Adventure” lineup from a few years ago. It included frame bags, seat packs, and racks with panniers. Well, the spirit of the Adventure line lives in the new Specialized and Fjällräven racks and bags. Roll on over to Fjällräven to check out the full drop.

RockShox Overhauls the Pike

We love the Pike. It’s equally at home on a mid-travel hardtail as it is on a full-suspension bike. This morning RockShox announced the all new Pike with three models, Pike with Flight Attendant, Pike Ultimate, and Pike+.

New Features:

  • Charger 3 damper with truly independent High Speed Compression (HSC) and Low Speed Compression (LSC) adjustments and silent rebound damping
  • ButterCups dampen high-frequency vibrations
  • DebonAir+ airprings, offering a consistent feel across all three fork platforms with tuned positive and negative air volumes
  • Pressure Relief Valves eliminate unwanted air pressure build-up in the fork lower leg
  • Maxima Plush Dynamic Suspension Lube
  • New chassis optimized for travel brackets and intended use case

Nukeproof’s New Scout

Never content with doing the bare minimum when it comes to their hardtail design, Nukeproof just released the new Scout hardtail with a slew of upgrades:

All new frame: The frame itself has matured slightly. Subtle touches such as moulded protection through to new UDH (universal derailleur hanger) dropouts to name but a few of the upgrades.

“Tweaked” geometry: While Nukeproof loved the way the V2 Scout rode, they still made a few subtle updates to areas such as the seat tube and head tube angles make this latest version even better.

Improved sizing: The new Scout offers size-specific chainstays as well as improved spacing of sizes to match the rest of the Nukeproof range.

Sizing: Scout comes from Small to XL in 275 and Medium to XXL in the 290 version, updated geometry to give the V3 Scout more efficiency to the trails and more attitude on the trails.
