Eurobike: Race Face's new carbon all-mountain bits
By Matthew Cole | Tuesday, September 8, 2009 2.00pm
Race Face were showing off their new SixC all-mountain carbon components at the Eurobike trade show, including cranks and handlebars.
The Canadian company have put the new bits through rigorous testing on the hardcore trails of British Columbia and have come up with a lightweight carbon line-up that's built to take a beating.
Race Face are hailing the SixC carbon bar as one of the strongest, widest carbon all-mountain bars on the market. It tips the scales at 220g with a width of 725mm.
The chainrings and bottom bracket spindle on the new carbon SixC all-mountain cranks have been CNC-machined and the crank arms hollowed out for maximum weight loss. The bottom bracket spindle has been fixed directly onto the driveside crank arm to reduce weight too. They're available with triple rings or double rings with alloy bashguard.

For downhill riders who run triple-clamp forks like RockShox Boxxers or Fox 40s, the new Atlas FR direct-mount stem has a flip mounting design to allow for a +1 degree rise or -1 degree drop. It's available in red, white or black, and there's a lighter weight SL version with titanium bolts and machined faceplate.
We'll confirm prices when they're available. Reviews of all the above will be on the site once we've put the kit through the grinder.
