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.
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.
Cadence’s Dustin Klein was recently contacted by pro skater Chico Brenes to do a collaboration with his skateshop in Nicaragua, Central Skate Shop. Skateboarding has always been a part of the Cadence brand and it’s rad seeing these two unique companies unite under such a clean product line.

I like the way this sounds!
“8 page color zine with 12 water color illustrations by Zak Kirwin of cell phone photos taken by Leland Taylor from the cell phone blog toolbag.tumblr.com. Bike camping, bandit camping, vagrancy and GOOD VIBES GALORE! Join the gang as they crash the party in paradise. When you’re camped out by the fire, and you reach for a brew, remember “Take ‘em from the middle, the others keep ‘em cold, and once you’ve had a few, the rest go down like water!” Printed locally on some classy ass vellum paper! 5″ x 8″”
This is the third layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Wet n Wild”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
Spring is almost here and with that means snowmelt will be filling the dry creek beds. The result: wet shoes will quickly be your companion on each ride. Here’s to the warmer months and soggy feet.

There’s nothing worse than the sting associated with paying a hefty shipping fee, especially for international purchases. Wraith Fabrication recently lowered their $250 rate to around $50 – $70 through switching to USPS. That’s enough money to make the cost of a brand new bike a bit easier to swallow.
Head over to Wraith to check out more specs on the Hustle, their road model.
Or maybe they’re Jailhouse Rock?
Cycling caps are both an icon of cycling and an incredibly functional piece of apparel. They shield the sun from your face, redirect sweat from your eyes and hide hat messy, mat of hair while at a cafe or a bar, post-ride.
Design and construction must go hand in hand when conceptualizing a product, regardless of simplicity. These Stinner Frameworks caps were designed by Team Dream Team, built by Pace in California and are one of the most carefully executed designs I’ve seen. All of the lines match up perfectly, something that isn’t illustrated accurately in Aaron’s product photos, so I took the liberty of documenting it myself.
I know this was a bit long-winded, but I like to take the time with products like this.

… one is available through your local bike shop and the other is a little more rare. Both are at Golden Saddle Cyclery in Los Angeles. I’m jealous of that Eisentraut buckle, but that Salsa Rattler Buckle might be the coolest thing I’ve seen in recent months.
For those of you who wish those ENVE stems were designed for mountain riding, or came in mountain lengths, today’s your lucky day. Just announced this afternoon, ENVE has developed a new stem, designed specifically for their M-Series wheels and component range.
The MTN stem is available in 40, 55, 70 and 85mm lengths, with a 6º or -6º rise and a 37mm stack height. MTN Stems are due to hit dealers any day now, so head to your local shop for ordering.
