The range topping Scalpel 29 Team (above) will retail for around R 115 000. For this you get a 10 kilogram bike featuring SRAM XX1, Enve wheelset, and of course a carbon Lefty fork (or should it be called a pole?).

The Scalpel 29 2 9 (blue/ black), retailing at R 67 000, comes kitted with SRAM XO1, Stan's Arch Ex rims and claims to weigh around 11 kilograms.

The Scalpel 29 3 (black/ red) features a mixture of SRAM X9 and X7 in the drivetrain, a Stan's ZTR Rapid wheelset and stealthy black paint job. The Scalpel 29 3 will be selling in your LBS for around R 55 000.

Cannondale Rush

The Rush will be sold in the place of the aluminium Scalpel's, as Cannondale's more affordable dual suspension range.

The Rush 29 1 (black) and Rush 29 2 (green).

The Rush 1 comes with Shimano XT/ SLX group set, ZTR Rapid wheelset and apparently weights in at 13.3 kilograms. Recommend retail price: R30 000.

The Rush 2 leaves the factory with a blend of SLX and Deore components, DC 3.0 wheelset and with a weight of 13.85 kilograms will set you back R23 500.

Cannondale Trigger

The Trigger Carbon 2 is available in two wheel sizes 27.5 (pictured above) and 29er. Both similarly specced with Shimano XT groupsets and Mavic Crossroc wheels. The smaller wheel option is marginally cheaper at R75 000, while the 29er will go for R76 000.

And a Tandem...

GT

GT Zaskar Carbon 9R LTD

Black is in this summer. At least GT seem to think so. Looking at this carbon beauty, we're not going to say they're wrong.

GT Helion

Here we have an odd one. This bike isn't set for our shores but Omnico are testing the waters with these exhibition specimens.

Check out the marketing video, it explains the concept of this bike far better than I could:

So did that inspire you to ditch those racey XC bikes, South Africa?

Fabric saddles

Fabric saddles is another new addition for Omnico. While we didn't get the chance to sit on one, for what it's worth, they did looked supremely comfortable.

Super 2R

As the name suggests, this helmet is like the Super 2 but with a detachable chinbar. How #enduro is that? Jokes aside, we like it.

Giro Helmets

Synthe

The Synthe is Giro's latest road helmet. Here's what they had to say about it: "the Synthe is the pinnacle of road helmet design, combining the performance gains of aero efficiency and light weight with great cooling power to enhance rider comfort and efficiency".
