TerraCycle Elite Idlers Press Release
For Release 23 June 2011

TerraCycle is proud to announce a new generation of Elite idlers- lighter, tougher, and even better looking than ever. We believe in continuously improving all our products, and are always making little improvements here and there as we go. Sometimes, to get better, it takes more than tweaking things, and you need a complete redesign to get to the performance level you want to reach. This is one of those times.

Years in the making, our new Elite idlers are lighter, even tougher than before, and sport a whole new look. By completely redesigning them, we were able to reduce weight by up to 11% and further improve their already legendary reliability. At the same time, we gave them a light new “see through” look and added some very stylish color accents. If you like the SRAM Red Group, you’ll love the new look.

By redesigning our tooling and production flow, we were able to shave grams and add finishing touches like edge rounding, tapered side plates, and more. The result is a very finished, very stylish idler with a heart of titanium, ceramic, and stainless steel. An idler you’ll be proud to own, an idler that will serve you impeccably for many years and many, many miles.

· Lighter than ever- only 75g in the 15T Ti, 8mm Hybrid Ceramic version, for example.
· Tougher than ever- a new box beam around core design handles the toughest chainlines with ease.
· More stylish than ever- tapered side plates, central windows, and dramatic red accent rings combine to for an exciting new look.
· Durable dual bearing design on all Power side idlers
· Fully rebuildable- if you bang up a side plate, for instance, all parts can be replaced individually.

Configurations Offered

In the tradition of our Elite series, a wide variety of configurations is offered, to perfectly fit nearly any bike or trike.

Sizes: 65mm (14T), 70mm (15T), and 101mm (23T). AL cog option on 23T, all others are titanium only.

interesting news. I am happy to see Pat at our event Cycle Vision, i just hope he will bring some of this candy with him.
There will be a lecture given by him and there will be lots of recumbent enthousiasts there.
Perhaps you are interested in that news too, http://www.ligfiets.net will be overflowing with news this week on racing, bikes, parts etc.

Considering they were already on the Terracycle web site, I guess not.
