Formula was showing their new R1 Racing and C1 brakes along with their popular ThirtyFive 27.5″ and 29″ forks.

The R1 Racing gets a new trick master cylinder, in which the aluminum lever pulls instead of pushes, for a lighter lever draw.

The C1 is their new affordable brake model. The altered some of the manufacturing methods to save on costs, but still giving the same Formula technology and performance.

The front 15mm axle is pretty interesting, and has a detachable QR lever.

Tony Ellsworth walked me through their two new bikes for 2014, the Absolute Truth Carbon 27.5 and Epiphany XC Carbon 27.5.

The Epiphany XC Carbon joins its aluminum brethren and gets 150mm of travel and 140 mm in the rear, and the 27.5″ wheel size. It has a nice looking open carbon fiber pattern with a gray color.

The Absolute Truth is celebrating a 20 year old incarnation, and the full carbon frame has been designed around the 27.5″ wheel size, and has 125mm of travel for front and rear.

The Truth has a drop gorgeous candy apple red paint with pins stripes.
