Dealer Camp New Products Report 2- Giro, Blackburn, Felt

Giro has diversified its product line, recently adding shoes. Fahzure doesn't find SPD shoes all that interesting and the Freeride shoes are not yet available (2012). Giro did have some new offerings in helmets and gloves, first up the Feature, $90.  Can you say Trans Alp, brah...this would look good on Van Dine.

The citified Reverb comes with a removable demi-visor and quick-fit, auto-adjust occipital lobe retention, $60: 

Giro gloves now have a pad that wraps from the outer palm to the back of the hand, good for Kung Fu fighting:

Best of Show =this Sweet single speed crosser was the most inspired bike at Dealer Camp, found at the Blackburn booth (note rack w/ integrated lock holder):

Waterproof pannier (he said it "pan-yeah"...when did the Tour end?), $80 ea:

New lights, the Scorch 2.0 with 230 lumens ($95) and the Super Flea ($45) w/ aluminum heat sink and double the lumens of the Flea:

These Blackburn racks aint your daddy's Blackburn (MTN-1) rack...disk compatible, super duty, seatpost mount (w/ pump holder):

Blackburn U-locks have a hexagonal shackle that will not twist open when cut, cable are Kevlar sheathed:

Also, Best of Show this purple suede saddle on the Felt BMXer (click to covet):
