Interbike ‘New Style’ Opens with Outdoor Demo
LAS VEGAS, USA – Yesterday, the 2014 edition of the largest American bicycle show Interbike kicked off with the popular Outdoor Demo at Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City, southwest of Las Vegas.
The indoor show starts tomorrow on a new location, the Mandalay Bay hotel and convention center. The convention center will house more than 800 companies representing some 1,200 brands filling 320,000 square feet of space.
The Health & Fitness Business show which is taking place simultaneously at the South Seas Ballroom in the same convention center, has been spread over an additional 24,000 square feet.
E-bikes: a growing trend
Also for the North American market, e-bikes are a growing trend, with more brands seeing the potential of the ‘electrified’ bikes to get new people cycling. European brands, like HaiBike will show several e-MTBs, including the 150mm travel dual-suspension Xduro AMT Pro with a 36volt, 250W center-mounted Bosch motor.
Interbike’s move to Mandalay Bay made it possible to create an outdoor test track for bicycles and e-bikes. Attendees can test the latest models on a framed quarter mile test track.
Interbike show will take place from September 18 – 20 in Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
