Revelate Designs Releases Terrapin System 8L Seat Pack

Getting bikepacking seat bags to fit on smaller frames can be a hassle, resulting in the rider needing to move the load from the bike onto their back. Revelate’s newest design, the Terrapin 8L pack looks to solve this problem. Based off the concept of their larger seat bag, the Terrapin System, this waterproof seat pack is designed with small clearances in mind.

A notable design feature of the Terrapin System 8L is Revelate’s new saddle rail attachment, which utilizes an active cam locking buckle, resulting in engagement and stability, two crucial elements when it comes to packing a load in on a seat pack. The included drybag is 3D formed with radio frequency welded construction, custom fit for the holster. It includes an air purge valve to allow for proper compression of the system. The Terrapin System 8L will have an MSRP of $135 and is available in black, crush (purple) and Multicam. See more at Revelate.

Seeking Speed in Searles Valley with Bontrager’s Aeolus XXX Wheels

Speed. It’s a motivation for many on the bike and while it’s not something we necessarily pursue over here at the Radavist, there’s a certain beauty found within documenting it. The desert has a long history with speed. From iconic Trophy Trucks, to the Baja 1000 and the salt flats at Bonneville, the desert offers an iconic backdrop for the pursuit of speed.

As you’ve noticed, much of my free time – in the shoulder seasons anyway – is spent in the Mojave, Sonoran and Colorado deserts, the three zones surrounding Los Angeles. One of those zones that has always resonated with me, in both a geological and photographic manner, is Searles Valley surrounding Trona, a small town with a large mineral mining operation. Trona is named after the mineral they mine there and is very much active. From the supersonic, bird-deterrent sound canons, to the trains leaving with full cargo cars, the industry surrounding Trona extends well beyond the bustling town limits.

Luckily, someone somewhere made the conscious decision to set aside a region that borders this mineral extraction site known as the Trona Pinnacles. These tufa spires were formed as gas exited an ancient lake bed 10,000 to 100,000 years ago. Roughly 500 of these spires litter the landscape, with some reaching as high as 140 feet. The resulting landscape is straight out of a Hollywood SciFi flick, which is why I’ve wanted to do a commercial cycling shoot there since first coming to this region a few years back. (more…)

Lindarets: Thru Axle Wheel Mount for Your Rig

I know some of you have vans, or 4x4s or pickup trucks that you camp and recreate from. While plenty of people rely on external vehicle racks, some swear by internal storage systems, which usually require the front wheel to be removed. Well, what happens to those wheels usually is they slide around and end up with dinged disc brakes. Lindarets looks to solve this with their Thru Axle Wheel Mount. Yep. Simplicity as a result of a specific need. Check out more at Lindarets.
