We have a new build kit option... the Shimano SLX NZ.
If you have been searching for a new bike recently you would have realised that the shortages are real. Unfortunately for 2022 things are not looking worse, not better. To help deal with the shortages we are now putting together some of our build kits from local suppliers. For now we are wearing the extra costs, but warning- 22 bikes will be more expensive again. There is no way around it sorry.
We do have some remaining 2021 stock so if you are keen to know what's available then please talk to a dealer or fill in this form here and we will get straight back to you. You can also always check out more details on all build kit options on the respective model pages here : ARC SB1105 SB130 SB140 SB150 SB165
Here are some photos of a SB140 C-Series built with our new SLX NZ build kit
Fox suspension and Maxxis, the same as on all our other builds. Exact fork and tire variants depend on the model.
Sweet grips and stem from Burgtec
The Fox Transfer dropper post holds a SDG Bel Air saddle.
The wheelset we have spec'd is the Shimano XT wheel, keeping the shimano theme strong across the bike. You can also upgrade the wheelset for $400 to some custom wheels that Wheelworks have made for us using their Dial hubs, laced onto DT XM481 (or EX511 for SB150/SB165) rims. These are built with J Bend DT Competition spokes.
Other options on wheels include using your own, or upgrading the wheelset to Enve AM30 Carbon wheels for $2000.
