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.
If you ride downhill or race enduro, chances are you spend a lot of time in a full-face helmet. The Giro Switchblade is a throwback to their first removable chin bar helmet. Back in 1998 they created the first mainstream mountain bike helmet with a removable chin bar and now, the design has been updated to include ASTM Downhill Certification…
Now to answer everyone’s pressing question: no, this will not make you shred like Aaron Bradford, but it’ll keep your smile pretty when you eat shit trying to!
Let me start by saying that if you haven’t been to Downieville, you’ve gotta go.
And if you haven’t raced the Downieville Classic, well then you’ve gotta do that too.
It’s one heckuva weekend.
The 2016 Downieville Classic happened Aug 6-7, marking the 21st edition of this race. Most people are there for the Classic Cross Country race, but the lucky few who clicked “Register” faster than anybody else compete in the prestigious All Mountain event—it sells out in seconds. The AM racers not only do in Saturday’s XC race, but also the famous Downieville Downhill on Sunday. Here’s the catch: you have to use the exact same bike for each event—don’t even think about changing your tires because they’ll catch you at weigh-in. Choose your gear wisely. (more…)
Cycling shoes need to be many things and it hasn’t been until recently that being reflective was even an option. If you love the Climber’s Shoes platform, but wanted a little bit more flash, be sure to check out the Reflective Climber’s Shoes. Available in a neon yellow and navy blue. See more at Rapha.
Giro’s marketing manager, tandem slayer and all around bad-ass, Amanda Schaper wanted to add a bit of fairy dust to her already magical Tinker Bell costume for this weekend’s SSCXWC. She took her Empire VR90 ‘cross shoes and spent a few days masking off various layers of spray glue and sparkles. The end result is something else! If you’re going to the SSCXWC this weekend, make sure you give Tinker Bell a high five and a beer handup!
Check out more photos below of these awesome shoes below.
I almost don’t want to show you these, because as you might have guessed, they were a gift to “friends and family” of Bike Mag. Ever since architecture school, where I explored WWI razzle dazzle camouflage and its potential for a building’s façade I fell in love with the seemingly random pattern language. Since then I’ve enjoyed seeing it appear literally all over pop culture and now, the cycling industry.
My favorite dirt shoes are the Empire VR90s and while I’ll always default on black, these shoes are a piece of art. I’m honored to own a pair so to the crew at Giro and Bike Mag, thanks for making them happen! Check out more photos below.
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.
