e*thirteen 9-44 TRS Cassette

While SRAM's 1x11 cassettes offers users an impressive 10-42 gear range, e*thirteen's new cassette gives you an even wider 9-44 spread. And the innovation doesn't stop there. They've actually split the cassette in two so you can replace either the higher or lower range independently depending on wear. The cassette is available for either 10- or 11-speed drivetrains. Price is $279 and $309 respectively. To learn more about how well it works, check out our first impressions here.

Crankbrothers Mallet E Pedals

The Mallet DH pedal is extraordinarily popular on the downhill circuit and Crankbrothers hopes to capture some of this same magic with their new enduro version. This pedal has a 52mm Q-factor, is 12% smaller, and 50 grams lighter than the DH version. It also utilizes new internal components, which Crankbrothers claims will help increase longevity.

Pacenti 12mm PDent Stem and Handlebar

As frames have gotten longer, many riders have turned to shorter stems to help liven up steering.

Retail is $33. For more info, check out our Interbike coverage here.
