BOULDER CITY, Nev. (VN) — Interbike 2011 is shaping up to be one of evolution rather than revolution. We’re seeing tweaks and improvements left and right, but a dearth of truly new product. Perhaps that will change once the show moves inside Wednesday.

Consistent with the theme of evolution, take a look at the latest wheels (deep and shallow) from Reynolds, a crop of shiny new shoes from Vittoria, the final production-ready iteration of the BMC Impec, and two new high-value Look-compatible pedals from Xpedo. All of the above feature welcome improvements, and are either modifications on existing product or are filling a hole in their respective company’s product line.
