SOLD OUT: The Radavist Berserkir Pocket T-Shirt
Berserker_Shirt-1

One of my favorite stories from Norse Mythology relates to nature’s impact on man. Scandanavian warriors would often wear the skin of a bear or a wolf before entering battle, resulting in the spirit of the animal possessing them in battle. As Odin’s personal army the Berserkir were known for ferocity as well as loyalty as they fought for the pack leader. In fact the Old Norse word berserkir, literally translates to “bear-shirt” and was soon called “going berserk.”

Venturing into the woods, be it during an expedition, or just an everyday ride, we too can find ourselves transformed. Every time we push ourselves on the bike, or subsequently find ourselves pushed off the bike, we grow – #RubberSideUp. This introspective experience not only shapes us as riders, but it continues to strengthen our relationship with nature. If anything deserves respect, it’s the woods.

This image of the Berserkir, or Úlfhéðnar, is further empowered by the Norse protection symbol, the Vegvísir, which is a direction sign that enables you to stay the course without being lost. Something extremely beneficial to cyclists.

Drawn by Kyler Martz and screened in Austin by Industry Printshop, these American Apparel pocket tees are $25 + shipping. Available in black and white. These will ship this week. Expect around a 2-week delivery time for international orders. Scoop one up below.

SORRY SOLD OUT

2015 NAHBS: Enve’s Prototype GRD Thru-Axle Fork
2015 NAHBS- Enve's Prototype GRD Thru-Axle Fork-6

I’m not even going to tell you what GRD stands for, because I’m sure you can guess. The newest prototype fork from ENVE is not what it appears to be. Cross fork? Nope. Road fork? Not really. The GRD is a new axle-to-crown dimension, offering a little more clearance than a road fork, yet not as much as a cross fork, at a rake more friendly for road bikes.

It’s that nuanced, middle ground that enough frame builders have requested from ENVE and after a good amount of internal discussion, they’ve finally responded to their demands. Thru-Axle compatible and an integrated, yet removable fender to keep your downtube, feet and legs clean while you’re tearing through muddy, wet roads.

This particular Moots has a few nifty prototype items on it, which I’ll be covering later next week. Detail oriented readers will spot that thru-axle, disc, Chris King hub though…

Supreme Purist Waterbottles
Supreme_Purist

As arguably one of the first legitimate streetwear operations, NYC’s Supreme has literally been there, done that in today’s collaboration environment. Recently however, they’ve been branching out of their normal product line with some left field products. Case in point: these Specialized purist water bottles. Luckily, you won’t have to camp outside one of their stores to “cop” a pair. These are going up on the shelf in the office for sure.

Manual for Speed Launches the Kasual Klub
manualforspeed_radavist_kklaunch-10

When Manual for Speed does something, they go above and beyond. Now, above what or beyond where is open to interpretation, but one thing’s for sure: these cats are wild. Wild, but chill.. and that’s exactly what Kasual Klub is all about. Chilling. Well, that and this:

“What is Kasual Klub? It’s a Vibe, a Crü, and a Collection of Clothes For Sale. And a Klub, obvs. There are only two ways to get in the Klub: 1) Turn yourself into an exceptionally gifted World Class Human Athlete (or equivalent), or 2) buy a Kasual Klub clothing item now available for sale in our “store”. That’s it; one way is really fucking hard, and pretty much impossible, the other way means you just have to buy a cotton t-shirt or some insane technical socks.”

See some more Kasual Klub flicks below and check the lineup at Manual for Speed.
