Among the updates are a new kids bike lineup, freshly refined colourways across the range and of course the Gravel bike announced recently. The other new arrival, the Vipa Trail, will be available as a complete build option in 2018. And amid the mass of bikes on show we spotted a prototype carbon hardtail e-bike sporting a Shimano drive system.
"Vipa Race" is the new title for the original Vipa marathon / cross-country bike most will be familiar with. From first glance the more subtle approach to the colour schemes is obvious and smaller design details do well to finish off the look.
We're no strangers to the Vipa Trail having recently built up and reviewed one. For 2018, we'll see two complete build options in two colourways: black, yellow and orange or black, red and white.
The brand new carbon gravel offering from Momsen and it's all about Gravel Plus. Plus you say? Not another standard, but rather points to the bikes ability to accomodate multiple wheel and tyre sizes: road (700 x 28-40C) and mountain bike (27.5 x 2.1 or 29 x 2.1).
The standard build doesn't include the Lauf fork pictured below, but is equipped with a SRAM 1x11 drivetrain, Stan's ZTR Grail wheels with through axels on both.
We've got an R355 at Bike Hub HQ - watch this space for the review.
This alloy gravel bike should offer good value, but don't expect the suspension fork to come standard. Much like the Lauf on the carbon option, the Fox AX fork was just a show piece.
Momsen's AL29 series sees a slick new paint job for 2018 and all models now sport their L.S.G. approach to geometry. The new lineup looks sharp and professional. The AL29 range are impressively all equipped with tubeless ready wheels and tyres as standard.

Return of the ST-R (and intro to the ST-F)
Momsen have refreshed their "ST-R" steel hardtail frame, now available with a Tange Sliding Dropout for single speed or geared use (ST-R) or as a fixed dropout option for geared use only (ST-F).
Something new on the horizon? The team at Momsen were enthusiastic about the future of e-bikes, but were mum on too many details about when we will see a production version of something electric.
The prototype features the Shimano STEPS system for e-mountain bikes, including a 250W power-assist drive unit, 504Wh battery, control switch and display.
We'll provide full details on the 2018 range as we get the official info.
