This autumn edition of incycle offers 89 pages of fantastic content including news and reviews, interesting features, a look at lots of fresh product and plenty of updates from the world of Saddleback and our brands.

Taking pride of place on the cover of this edition is a nod to the ten-year anniversary of Saddleback and Castelli. The decade long relationship has been key in the growth of both Castelli and Saddleback so we sat down with Castelli brand manager Steve Smith to get his side of the story. Going from near bankruptcy, to becoming the Italian powerhouse they are today, you will want to grab a coffee, sit down and enjoy this behind the scenes look into the last 10 years of the Castelli/Saddleback partnership.

We have a number of event reports, including the Saddleback Sodbury Sportive and the Ard Moors Enduro, as well as coverage of the 'jewel in the crown of cycling shows' – the Rouleur Classic. Alongside this, you will find a host of features including a look at what went on at our 2016 Saddleback House Show, the making of the previous issue's Troy Lee Designs cover and an in-depth look at geometry with Intense Cycles founder Jeff Steber.

It doesn't end there: we have a good look at the Intense Recluse; check out the ins and outs of the brand new Stages Dash head unit and accompanying Link software; we take a look back on 2016 and what it has offered us in terms of innovation and evolution; and plenty more.

This is our biggest, and best issue of incycle yet and we are incredibly proud of it. Printed copies are on their way to dealers right now, however you can read it straight away on To request a printed copy, please email
