Kellys 2017 Collection Highlights

KELLYS 2017

KELLYS COMES INTO 2017 SEASON WITH EXTENDED COLLECTION OF BICYCLES, ACCESSORIES AND CLOTHING. BICYCLE RANGE WITH ABSOLUTELY NEW ROAD BIKE PLATFORM, 27.5+ TRAIL HARDTAILS AND ENDURO E-BIKE AMONG THEM, REVISED SPECS OF WELL KNOWN MODELS, NEW COLOURS, NEW MATERIALS AND NEW SMART IDEAS WERE CAREFULLY PREPARED TO MAKE THE UPCOMING SEASON UNIQUE FOR THE RIDERS.


NEW URC


Kellys URC 70 2017Absolutely new URC comes with new frame, specs and better performance.

Awaited new URC finally has come with absolutely innovative carbon frame and up-to-date specs available with disc or rim brakes option. The previous URC is a very successful road racing bike, valued for its lightness, precise handling and top performance in peloton. While designing new platform Kellys R&D engineers set the bar much higher to make new URC even lighter, stiffer and faster. To achieve this, they implemented Power Core Design which is based on combining material characteristics with specific shape to create strong and uniform structure while maintaining low weight. With the top grade high-modulus carbon fibres from Boeing supplier, extensive mechanical simulations and researches, Kellys engineers came up with stress-optimized shape of the frame using the same blend of carbon fibres for the whole frame, to keep the structure homogeneous, without any insertions of different fibres or materials used by other brands. One of the most advanced and time-consuming shape optimization in bicycle industry allows engineers to prevent any impurities or irregularities across the frame material, which could cause strength decrease and weight issues.

Kellys URC 90 2017

Power Core Design gives the new URC frame one of the best weight to stiffness ratio.

The Power Core represents the extended structure from head tube, through down tube and bottom bracket to chainstays and rear dropouts. Thanks to high lateral and torsional stiffness, the Core is responsible for precise handling, high speed stability and ultra-efficient power transfer, and it is lightweight. With 890g (rim brake) and 930g (disc brake) the frame of new URC is one of the lightest on the market, providing top-of-the-line weight to stiffness ratio.

Kellys URC 70 2016
Kellys URC 70 2016

Thanks to extended wheelbase and revised geometry, the new URC gained better high-speed/descending stability without sacrificing any of its predecessor’s agility and reactivity.

For best compatibility with top road equipment, the new URC uses the latest standards as full Di2 ready internal cable routing, press-fit BB, rigid thru axles with brake callipers flat mount (disc brakes), front and rear derailleur (with safe hanger) direct mount, rear rim brake calliper mounted under bottom bracket.

Kellys URC 90 2017

Introducing of Otso Cycles

Introducing of Otso Cycles

Introducing Otso™ Cycles. A new bicycle company from the engineers and innovators at Wolf Tooth Components™.

Otso™ Cycles – Company Genesis
There are so many bike companies already – why start another one? The short answer is because we wanted bikes that did not exist. Most people would just keep dreaming and hoping somebody would make their ideal bike someday but if you are the slightly crazy mechanical engineers and innovators from Wolf Tooth, you start a new bike company and spend every free minute making those bikes a reality.

It sounded easy when we were first brainstorming over a couple of beers but we quickly learned that it takes a ton of work to do it right. We had to become experts in many topics including carbon molding, stainless steel tube welding, investment casting, and ISO fatigue testing to name a few. Along the way, we developed a new patent-pending adjustable dropout system and carbon frame design.

The results of our efforts are two groundbreaking new bikes: a narrow q-factor fat-capable bike that feels like a nimble trail bike and is equally fun to ride in snow and dirt; and a drop-bar bike that transcends all the usual labels and is a joy to ride everywhere from gravel to CX to your favorite urban singletrack.

Otso is focused on bringing new and innovative ideas to the bike industry and so far we’re pretty damn proud of the results. All of our test riders are amazed by these bikes, and you will be too from the very first ride to the last mile of an epic race. Enjoy the adventure!

Otso Voytek

 

Otso Warakin

Now more details on the bikes:

Voytek™ — The ultimate hardtail mountain bike for plus and fat tires
Voytek is a carbon fiber hardtail mountain bike designed around the exclusive Otso Plus-Fat™ concept. It is a 27.5+ or 29+ trail bike that can also accommodate up to 26×4.6” tires. With the narrowest Q-factor of any production fat-capable bike, it feels like a mountain bike, not a fat bike and opens up a whole new dimension in summer or winter riding. Also featuring our patent pending Tuning Chip™ rear dropout system, the chainstay length can be adjusted from a fun and nimble 430 mm to a fast and stable 450 mm. Voytek blurs the line between plus and fat and it will change your perception of what’s possible in this class of bike.

Voytek™ Key Features
? Designed in Minneapolis, Minnesota by a team of engineers with extensive mountain bike and fat bike riding and racing experience. It’s like riding your favorite hardtail trail bike but with the added capability of fat tires.
? Narrow Q-factor crank arms — the narrowest pedal stance of any production fat bike by a wide margin. Uses the 83mm bottom bracket standard (implemented as PF107) to provide an actual Q-factor as narrow as 183 mm. The result is the pedals are spaced only about 10 mm wider than a normal mountain bike whereas other fat bikes are typically 30-50 mm wider. The wide Q-factor of all other fat bikes adversely affects both pedalling efficiency and bike handling. A narrow Q-factor fat tire capable design provides benefits in biomechanics.
? A narrow Q-factor reduces knee and hip strain while allowing proper/normal cycling muscle recruitment. Simply put, this means more efficient pedaling and painless/seamless transitions between fat biking and mountain biking.
? Narrow Q-factor also improve bike handling making the Voytek handle like any other top of the line hardtail. Weight shifting, which is how riders generate much of their steering, causes a torque about the center of the bike based on where the rider’s foot pushes down. With a narrow Q-factor this torque is not only familiar but is also smaller with the foot being closer to the center of the bike. With a wide q-factor, this torque is much larger and creates an unwelcome and abrupt turning transition feel that all wide Q-factor fat bikes have.
? Accomplishing this narrow Q-factor has not been done before on a production bike because it requires a custom offset chainring (not easy to do unless you make your own chainrings), a commitment to 1x drivetrains (Voytek is designed exclusively for 1x drivetrains), and some creative engineering with the chainstay design (we can be very creative).
? Tuning Chip™ system developed by Wolf Tooth Components provides 20 mm of chainstay length adjustment and subtle changes to the bottom bracket drop and head tube angle. Choose a shorter-higher-steeper the 430 mm position, the shortest chainstays available on any production fat bike, for a fun and nimble ride. Or choose a longer-lower-slacker 450 mm position for more stable handling in deep snow and sand. as well as making subtle changes to bottom bracket drop and head tube angle. A middle position chip is also available. Swapping between the positions is very simple and can be done in about 2 minutes.
? Tuning Chip™ system is the lightest, most compact and best looking adjustable dropout on the market. This patent-pending design uses two interchangeable chips to select one of three possible axle locations. There is no possibility of axle misalignment and it is very secure for a creak-free ride.
? Plus-Fat™ design delivers great handling as a 27.5 plus or 29 plus trail bike in the dirt and as a fat bike in the snow and sand (or dirt). Our bike’s geometry is simply more fun to ride than other fat bikes.
? Modern geometry — longer top tube, short chainstays and slightly slacker head tube angle. Simply put, shorter rear center and longer front center for more speed and more fun.
? Proportional sizing — all important dimensions are changed for each frame size. We put the extra time and money to do it right. It is becoming commonplace to take shortcuts and share carbon lugs between sizes (e.g. L and XL having the same head tube length) leaving the smallest and tallest riders with a poor fitting bike.
? Accommodates internally routed dropper post.
? Possible wheel/tire sizes include: 26×4.0” up to 26×4.6”, 27.5×2.6 up to 27.5×4.0, 29×2.2 up to 29×3.0. Notes on tire clearance:
? 26×4.0” tires will fit on any rim up to 100 mm width but 26×4.6” tires fit only on narrower rims such as our Lithic Rhyolite with 64 mm internal width. May fit wider rims, but user is responsible for verifying adequate clearance on all non-factory builds (too many factors with tire manufacturing, wheel trueness and dish, rims, and tire pressure).
? 177x12mm rear hub spacing, 150x15mm front rigid fork or Bluto hub spacing, and 110×15 with a Plus specific fork.
? EPS molded carbon fiber provides smooth interior walls and optimized carbon compaction.
? 100% carbon fiber frame. No aluminum inserts or structural fiberglass. Light weight, high strength, Otso™ quality.
? Single speed capable with optional dropouts.
? Available for pre-sale now at otsocycles.com. Medium and large bikes ship starting mid-September. Small and XL frames ship in October.
? Color options: matte black/gray/white and gloss metallic-platinum/blue/white.
? Build options:
? Frankset (crankset included with frameset since 83mm BB cranksets are not yet widely available) – $2299 – includes frame, custom carbon fork, Race Face Cinch Aeffect crankset, Wolf Tooth CAMO™ chainring, headset, and seatpost collar. An upgrade to Next SL crankset is available.
? Fat bike complete – $3899 – Shimano XT build, DT Swiss 350 hubs, and our Lithic Rhyolite rims that we developed for the perfect combination of width, weight, and durability.
? Plus bike complete (27.5+ or 29+) – $4199 with RockShox Reba fork or $4599 with Fox F34 Factory fork – Shimano XT build, DT Swiss 350 hubs, and Race Face Aeffect 40mm internal width rims.

Times are changing in the world of bicycles. Wheels sizes are getting bigger, then smaller, then bigger again. With the ongoing changes in the bike industry the Calgary Cycle Group has made changes in how they do business. From this thought process Outlet Bikes was born.

With the fast paced changes in the bike industry we were looking for a way to keep the floor filled with fresh and new products so our customers could always have their pick of the latest and greatest products we have to offer.”

Walking into Outlet Bikes is not what you would expect from a discount bike store. The walls are lined with custom graphics, there is service stands in the back shop, and the bike selection is far from what you would expect to see in a “clearance location.” This is because the Calgary Cycle Group prides themselves on quality and Outlet is no exception. The floor is filled with a plethora of product from Colnago, Pinarello, Santa Cruz, Scott, Ibis, Niner, Intense, Yeti and many more. With this selection of bikes at rock bottom prices it is almost certain you will find something that is right for you.

You would think with the crazy deals at Outlet Bikes you would get a decline in service, as if shopping at some kind of outlet mall store. This is far from the case. Outlet Bikes offers the same service, brand names and expertise as the rest of the Calgary Cycle family but at prices that will leave you with enough cash to buy your friends a round of post-ride beers. Every bike that leaves the doors of outlet is entitled to the same “Full Cycle Service” as a bike purchased from the other 4 CC group locations. This means you can have your bike custom sized to you at any of the locations in the city, as well as you are entitled to lifetime tune ups at no additional charge.
