A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
Giro just posted their official recap video and photo gallery from the Grinduro weekend. The video does a great job at capturing the vibes from the weekend and their photo recap at Giro touches on even more. Head on over and check it out.
When Joe Parkin approached Giro’s Dain Zaffke about a new race format a few years back, the initial reaction the two had was more than a chuckle, rather than any degree of seriousness but the seed had been planted…
Why not make a new race format? Part gravel grind and part enduro. Grinduro. You get the best of both worlds, competition and socializing on bicycles. A few segments would be timed: a fire road climb, a fire road descent, a road time trail and a singletrack descent. The event would prove to bring about a rather interesting dialog: what is the most diverse bicycle in your stable? (more…)
I’m not sure if I’ve ever looked more forward to a cycling event as Grinduro. The format is sure to bring about competition, yet I doubt many people will be taking it seriously. Personally, I’m gonna be in party ride mode. Especially after these next few weeks!
To liven up the environ, Giro’s got a few fun products slated to launch at Grinduro and of which we already looked at in this year’s Interbike coverage. These knuckle gloves will be a hit, I’m sure…
What is still, to this day the best bang for your buck MTB or ‘cross shoe, the Privateer just got a bit of a facelift. Introducing the Privateer R, the newly-designed shoe from Giro. I’m eager to check this one out in person!
When Giro launched their New Road apparel line a few years back, they brought in their take on what road cycling wear could become and now, their Chrono Collection addresses the other side to that coin for apparel.
The Chrono collection was launched yesterday and I’ve been reading up on it at their site. My take-away here: the Chrono Collection offers affordable and functional pieces for men and women but the most significant designed piece is the Chrono Expert Halter Bib for women. That’s innovative design.
Check out more at Giro and I’m curious to hear your thoughts on this.
Need a new trail or bikepacking helmet? Check out the new Giro Montaro™ MIPS. With looks to kill and great details, these helmets will be hitting dealers in October for a retail of $150, something we can all afford. Check out more information at Giro and see the product details at their web shop.
Last year at the Tour, Giro unveiled the SYNTHE helmet. A lightweight, aerodynamic, well-ventilated helmet with a clean, minimal profile. This year, the SYNTHE got safer with MIPS, or multi-directional impact protection system. MIPS is the by-product of the science behind safety, which in my opinion is more important than any speed or aerodynamic efficiency testing you’ll read online. Another factor to consider is looks. There are colors to match your desired look, from black to fluorescent. The SNYTHE looks good, which will make you want to actually wear your helmet more.
