The Exposure line of lights will be a key attraction at the USE stand at Cycle Show. All of the 2011 range run on Cree XPG LED – approximately 30 per cent brighter and also more efficient (and cool) too. Rear light Flare promises to up the ante at £40. Bright enough to be seen even in broad daylight, the small affordable unit aims to up road safety for all cyclists, whether time trialliists, triathletes or commuters. Fully waterproof, the units fit via a no-tools-required bracket. Also up from the firm is the Six Pack. At £450 it packs in 1,800 lumens. The cable-free design is pitched as a mountain bikers dream.
The Joystick Mk.3 (£165) is the next version of the light that has bagged a raft of awards. Now offering 60 more lumens for the same burntimes, the new beam offers greater distance penetration.
The USE brand will have a number of new lines on display on the stand too, including the Summit Carbon Road bars (SRP £225) and the USE Summit Alloy Road bars (SRP £60). Newest of all with be the USE Track Rings, which have yet to be set an SRP.
Powacycle is set to launch its Infineum Continental bike at Cycle Show.

As with the Extreme, the batteries can be added to perk up the range of the bike. The lightweight high efficiency motor and modular connection system have also been taken onto the new bike, as has the high spec ethos of the Infineum range, featuring high-end componentry on a frame with 28-inch wheels.
