Limar S9 sunglasses review

Joe Robinson Friday, March 16, 2018 - 15:16 Look beyond the big eyewear hitters and you will find this gem from Limar 4.5 / 5 €99.95 I first saw the Limar S9 sunglasses at last year's Eurobike trade show . It was getting towards the end of the second day, I was tired after circumnavigating the giant plane hanger for the last six hours in search of all the new gear being released by all the big brands.

Bargain Hunt I've been testing these sunglasses for quite a while. Six ...

So what's the deal with Canyon's unique new Hoverbar?

The Hoverbar is Canyon’s totally unique integrated carbon cockpit that the new Grail gravel bike was designed around.
