Kilimanjaro: Mountain of Greatness

This looks wild!

“Mountain bike legends Hans “No Way” Rey, Danny Macaskill, and Gerhard Czerner attempt the impossible… The first back to back mountain bike ascents and descents of Mt. Kenya and Kilimanjaro Africa’s second tallest and tallest peak. What they experience changes their lives.”

ENVE Introduces 35mm Clamp Bars and Stems

Last year, ENVE relaunched their M Series mountain wheels, with wider profiles, enhanced ride quality, and anti-flat protection. This year, to follow up on this redesign, the brand looked at their mountain cockpits, revising the profiles and clamp diameters. After testing and refinement, ENVE has established two base handlebar constructions; One construction rated for trail and another for gravity. These new M Series handlebars now come in four base models; M5, M6, M7 and M9. The M5 and M6 handlebar models are Trail-Rated, designed for XC and trail riding or racing, while the M7 and M9 handlebar models are Gravity-Rated, and refined for the specific needs of enduro and downhill racing.

Check out profile and pricing information below and expect all other information to drop soon at ENVE.

100% + The Mojave Desert + Sagan

Sagan’s Roubaix victory was iconic, yet the thing that left an impression on me was his 100% moto goggles. It was one of those racing moments that had me laughing with glee. His sponsorship by the brand has produced a number of videos with the Slovak professional, including this one, featuring their Speedcraft AIR design. What is Speedcraft AIR? Well, watch this, set in the Mojabe to find out.

Godspeed Trailer

The Race Across America is the subject of the film Godspeed, a documentary film hitting select theaters May 22nd.

“The Award-winning documentary GODSPEED has turned out to be no ordinary cycling film. The brutal reality of two middle-aged men, racing as a relay-team, around the clock, for an entire week, including the punishing obstacles and life-draining assault on their bodies, minds, and characters required something many world-class athletes depend on, family, friends, and faith. Purchase advanced tickets now. ”

Stompump Tire Inflator

The inventions found on Kickstarter never cease to amaze me. Take the Stompump Tire Inflator for instance. Small enough to pack with you on rides, yet powerful enough to get the job done. Check out more at Kickstarter.

“Patagón is the video that tells the adventure of Montanus during the bike and packraft exploration of a remote area of southern Patagonia, where, between the Austral Andes and the huge glacial lakes, the traditional Argentine culture of the gauchos still survives.”

Useful Double Drivetrains with Easton’s Gravel Shifting Rings – Morgan Taylor

Photos and words by Morgan Taylor

Double drivetrains may currently be out of vogue for off-pavement riding, but I think they really do have a place on today’s gravel and adventure bikes. While the chainring combinations in Easton’s Gravel Shifting Rings introduced today aren’t a new idea by any means, they make a lot of sense with the way people are using their bikes these days.
