Pacenti 12mm PDent Stem and Handlebar
As frames have gotten longer, many riders have turned to shorter stems to help liven up steering. The shortest stem we’ve seen using traditional construction methods is 30mm, but by using a dimpled bar for more clearance, Pacenti’s new PDent system has produced stems as short as 12mm. Check out our Sea Otter coverage for more info.
Push ElevenSix Shock
Best known for its aftermarket suspension tuning, Push entered the suspension game in a big way with the new ElevenSix shock. The dual overhead valve design allows two independent compression settings that can be switched on the fly. Each shock is hand built in Colorado and costs $1,200.

Renthal Sticky Grips
There isn’t a ton of room for innovation in the grip market, but Renthal’s new Sticky Grips are an interesting new offering. Using the same material used to manufacture the sticky hand toys you played with as kids, these grips produce a sticky compound to help improve bar grip. The more you sweat, the tackier they get. Retail is $33. For more info, check out our Interbike coverage here.
X-Fusion Revel Inverted Fork
Originally released a few years ago as a limited edition model, X-Fusion has now created a production version of the inverted Revel suspension fork. It will use the well-regarded Roughcut HLR Damping system found in their 34mm platform and is available for both 650B and 29” models. Price is $1000.
