Mountain biking icon Joe Breeze, whose return to the sport he helped create we documented earlier in the summer, is about to unleash another round. At Dealer Camp in Deer Valley, Utah on July 29 (Thursday), Breeze will be showing two personal breakthroughs: His first carbon fiber frame, and his first set of 29ers.
Going by Cloud 9, a name we love, the new hardtails will hit the streets this fall, available in full builds (Limited Edition at $5,899 and Pro at $2,999) or as $1,799 framesets. It will have Breeze’s innovative twists, including rear brake calipers mounted on the chain stays for less howl and greater rigidity.
More to come! For now, here’s the eye candy …
