Manual for Speed Launches the Kasual Klub
manualforspeed_radavist_kklaunch-10

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.

Manual for Speed: Tour de San Luis Prints
SL1-Shop

Two of my favorite photos from Manual for Speed’s Tour de San Luis coverage are now available as prints. Or, if you prefer, there are posters as well. Either way, your walls could always use a lil more cycling ephemera. Both prints and the posters are in stock at Manual for Speed.

Manual for Speed: Tour de San Luis – Día Dos
manualforspeed_tourofsanluis-13

The dudes are down in Argentina for the Tour de San Luis doing there thing – which is, by the way, so finely-tuned these days. Their unique form of anthropological archiving of professional bike racing is unstoppable. Head over to Manual for Speed to soak in some Argentinian culture. Oh and bike racing. Oh and a sick mix tape.

Manual for Speed: Human Athlete Visual Showcase – Team Clif Bar x The Radavist
manualforspeed_2014crossnats_clifhavs-35

It was last Thursday morning, I believe, when Daniel and Emiliano from Manual for Speed hollered hard at me via SMS about doing a Human Athlete Visual Showcase (HAVS) with Team Clif Bar at our house. Bear in mind, there were about 8 people sleeping at my house during Nats, so it was a mess but who can say no to such adorable photographers?

Saturday morning rolled around and promptly at 11am, MFS and Team Clif Bar entered the house, made us all get into skinsuits and began to do their thing. The resulting photos and a short Q&A is now over at Manual for Speed, so go check it out!

Manual for Speed’s 2014 Photo Annual
MFS-FACE-SOFT-COVER-RENDER-1

I’m so stoked on this. I wish more photo-heavy sites did annuals and this one looks so good. Here’s how the guys are describing this book:

“Manual for Speed is about the vibe, man. It’s about the whole deal, the whole spectacle. In fact, if we could do it again we’d call this project Spectacle Of Speed. In support of, and in homage to, the sentiment that Spectacle is our premise, here is a catalog, a typology if you will, of The Best Shit we witnessed in 2014.”

Pre-order at Manual for Speed.

Manual For Speed’s Best of 2014
manualforspeed_usapc14_stage3-14

Yeah, you heard that right. The dynamic duo of cycling anthropologicalisms had one hell of a year and their Best of 2014 post is one of the longest scrolling articles in the history of cycling journalism. It’s like a 2000k brevet on a desktop.

Head over to Manual for Speed to see the whole thing!

Manual for Speed Does Jingle Cross
manualforspeed_jinglecross2-38

Cyclocross is, to me anyway, more visually interesting than road racing, especially when it’s through the lens of Manual for Speed. Jingle Cross lives in infamy for being a really, really, really, cold and tough race, both of which is evident in Manual for Speed’s Part 1 and Part 2 of their coverage… Check it out!

Manual for Speed: RFTD Space Panda Jersey
Panda_MFS

I want to call them crazy, but we already know that. Manual for Speed transcends crazy, like space pandas shooting lasers from their eyes… Kinda like these jerseys, for pre-order now, through November 2nd for a late December, early January delivery.

See more at Manual for Speed.
