Ultra Romance knows a thing or two about bicycle portage and while he always has ideas, sometimes making them a reality is out of his capabilities. That’s why he reached out to Swift Industries to help in the design and fabrication of a new bag design.

Dubbed the Ültraswift Wizard Sleeve bags, these roll top bags can expand to engulf your cargo needs and are available in two sizes: Cavernous (44 liters expanded / 27 liters closed) and Covy Cave (28 liters expanded / 16 liters closed). Like all Swift bags, these are made in Seattle by cyclists!

Head to the Poppi’s Fine Public Restrooms for pre-ordering.

Giro’s Switchblade MIPS

If you ride downhill or race enduro, chances are you spend a lot of time in a full-face helmet. The Giro Switchblade is a throwback to their first removable chin bar helmet. Back in 1998 they created the first mainstream mountain bike helmet with a removable chin bar and now, the design has been updated to include ASTM Downhill Certification…

Now to answer everyone’s pressing question: no, this will not make you shred like Aaron Bradford, but it’ll keep your smile pretty when you eat shit trying to!
