Interbike 2015 has wrapped up and the jetlag hopefully passed for the many who came from Europe and beyond.

To sit alongside our gallery from the Outdoor Demo and round up of the Interbike Award winners, we now have a product gallery from the show floor, viewable here.

Here's our pick of the bunch from the Mandalay Bay exhibition:

Kopin's Solos smart glasses

We talked a bit about these here, but perhaps didn't emphasise enough how impressive the moveable display is on this one. At just 4mm tall, the projector casts a virtual 5-inch transparent feed of your stats. One of those you won't believe it until you try it products. With Recon having gained Intel's backing and significantly dropped its retail price, we don't expect the Solos to have an easy ride when it comes to competition, but it's an excellent product nonetheless.

Coast Cycles 

Hailing from Singapore, Coast Cycles had a diverse line of city and off road bikes on show at Interbike, but it's the Quinn Cargobike that caught our and many other's eye.

Able to fit into a typical lift, the bike has a short wheelbase (150cm) for a cargo model, but cleverly utilises spaces in the frame to lug messenger bags and packs. Add to that a maintenance free belt drive from Gates and mounts under the frame to accomodate a Bionx motor should the customer want to add pedal assist and this is a small but efficient package.

Coast is one of many labels soon to be covered that are seeking distribution or dealers in the UK at present.

Redshift Sports

Catching our eye last year for much the same reason, Redshift was on our must see list thanks to the company's short, but impressive history when it comes to innovation.

This year the firm was showing off it's vibration absorbing stem, which houses elastomers offering vibration dampening at five different levels.

The demo rig offered visitors the chance to absorb a typical pothole impact on first a rigid stem and then Redshift's new unit. We saw sales going through the firm's kickstarter on the stand following many trials. The target has already been smashed.

Pivot's Mach 429SL

Scooping the Interbike 'Mountain Bike of the Year' award, the Mach 429SL is Pivot's new DW Link based full suspension platform that the label are describing as the more affordable baby of the Mach 4 and 6. The brand expects this to be its best seller in 2016.
