If those wild, colorful Manual for Speed Artist Residency kits were too much for you, then how about some wild, colorful bottles? Each artist in the project got to design a pattern which was translated to a bottle, made in the USA by Specialized. In stock now at the MFS Shop.
WTF Kits brought back their classic Whiskey bottles but in a 26oz size for summer. There’s also a restock on the popular Braaap Sabbath bottle. Head on over to the WTF Kits shop to check’em out.

Inspired 10% by Clerks and 90% by Odin’s animalistic warriors….
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 made in the US of A by Specialized. Two bottles sell for $27 shipped or $37 shipped Internationally. This is a PAIR of bottles.
Sorry! SOLD OUT!
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.
Our friends at Poler just stoked their bicycle water bottle for 2015, as a follow up to their highly successful Purist bottles last year. Scoop up one or a pair at Poler today.
As I was dropping a few rolls of film off yesterday, I thought to myself “I wonder who will make the first film canister bicycle bottles?” Well, that answers that. Personally, this is my all time favorite bottle flip.

Ok, I know this isn’t a photo of the actual bottle, but WTF Kits is bound to sell out of these before I get mine in the mail to shoot a photo, so just trust me here.
Any given Sunday is race day during CX season. Dirt church if you will. Show up and play some Braaap Sabbath! Each bottle comes with a koozie. In stock now at WTF Kits.
