SOLD OUT AGAIN! Olive Drab and Desert Tan Radavist Bottles
ODandDesertTan-2

We’ve restocked the Olive Drab and Desert Tan Radavist bottles and will be shipping these out next week. Be advised, however with the holiday season, these might take a while to get to you, especially if you live outside the US.

Olive drab is a timeless color and one that, as you can tell, is not going anywhere. It, paired with desert tan, are personally my two favorite tones. We kept it simple this round, with two bottles in two colors, with one design. In stock now in high numbers and shipping worldwide. Scoop up a pair of Radavist Olive Drab or a pair of Radavist Desert Tan bottles below for $20 a pair + shipping.

*Please note, if you order two sets, you have to pay for shipping twice because of the postage rate doubling when the package increases that much (over 12″ long) in size. I’ve tried to bring the rate down but it won’t work. Apologies.

**Also, we had some international orders returned from our local office, so if you’re still waiting on your previous order, they went out yesterday. Again, apologies.

SORRY SOLD OUT!

The Radavist 2016 Calendar: December
RAD_Dec2016_1000

This is the twelfth layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “the Ladder” Shot with a Canon 1dx and a 24-70 f2.8 in the Ben Lomond National Park, Tasmania.

Ben Lomond national park is renown all over Australia for its skiing. The locals say “if you can ski Ben Lomond, you can ski anywhere” due to its rocky landscape and shallow, often frozen snow. The same can be said about Ben Lomond’s infamous “Jacob’s Ladder” climb. A series of snaking dirt switchbacks ascend to the top of Ben Lomond Mountain at 5,150 ft and resemble many of the iconic European road climbs, but it’s all dirt! If you can climb this road and the climb’s approach through the Tassie bush, you should have no problem tackling any other ride!

For a high-res JPG, suitable for print and desktop wallpaper*, right click and save link as – The Radavist 2016 Calendar – December. Please, this photo is for personal use only!
(*set background to white and center for optimal coverage)

The mobile background also features Jacob’s Ladder. Click here to download December’s Mobile Wallpaper.

MOSKITO: Swiss Analog Smart Watch and Bike Speedometer

Having been in development for over three years, MOSKITO is a bicycle speedometer that works on both your wrist and bike. By using three modes, MOSKITO can be tailored to either operate as a traditional watch with classic Swiss stylings, or a comprehensive cycling speedometer. With compatibility with Strava, it’ll even record your route and essential information. For extra tuning your data, or setting up the unit’s Bluetooth settings, simply use the MOSKITO App on your smartphone. Each MOSKITO is handmade in Switzerland, a country that knows a few things about precision and is available in a KM/H or M/H face. Plus, they look great on a NATO band.

Pricing begins at CHF 535 or around $526 USD. See more at the MOSKITO Kickstarter.

Feast your eyes upon the Dead Reckoning Year(s) Book
deadreck_mockup01

For the past two years, Yonder Journal has traveled the globe to investigate and report on bikepacking / ultra-lightweight bicycle touring. They called this project Dead Reckoning. The team at Yonder Journal felt that a project of this magnitude demanded a life outside of the internet, something you could hold in your hands, something with weight, a physical source of inspiration and contemplation, a book of pictures so exquisitely crafted that even a quick glance, a mere flip of the pages, would incite a riot of adventurous inspiration.

Introducing the Dead Reckoning Year(s) Book. A compendium of two years worth of dirt napping, bike pushing, and adventure voguing.

Stats? This is thing is 9″x12″, perfect bound, and 160 pages. It features nearly 200 color photographs and is printed in the USA.

The Year(s) Book is on pre-order sale through December 8th. Head over to their store for the full details.

Water is Life Standing Rock Fundraising Bottles
Waterislife

Support Standing Rock and the Water Protestors in North Dakota with these fundraising bottles!

“As athletes, and cyclists, we know how important hydration is to our every day lives – it nourishes us, cleanses us, and often even encourages us- that’s why we must ride in solidarity with the Water Protectors in North Dakota.

These Mni Wiconi bottles – which means “Water is Life” in Lakota – are a small way for us to help the indigenous people of this land save our environment. All proceeds being donated to the brave men and women who are uniting from all over the world to fight for our clean water at Standing Rock. 

In reality it is a fight we should all take part in, to save our water from a predictable contamination and esnure our planet survives by ending dependency on insustainable energy sources. Even if we can’t travel to join our brothers and sisters we can still help them through donation and mindfulness.



The design features the Lakota Thunderbird surrounded by rain water, bringing hope, justice, and clarity to the Water Protectors. Overhead is the Lakota phrase that embodies the struggle – Mni Wiconi.”
