Kona Takes on Badwater to Mt. Whitney

The Kona Adventure Team takes to the lowest point in North America, Badwater Basin (-282.2′), to the highest in the contiguous US, Mount Whitney (14,505′). The cool thing about this is it used to be an annual bike race, dubbed the Whitney Classic. This route climbs three classic passes, Townes Pass is 16.6 miles and ascends 5,000′, Hillcrest is 11.9 miles and ascends 3,000′, and The Whitney Portal road is 12 miles and ascends 5,000′. I’ve spoken with cyclists in Owens Valley who used to hike to the top of Mount Whitney the day after the race as “recovery.”

Hexlox’s Perfect Fit Thru Axle System

There are numerous standards for thru-axles and it can be kind of maddening when it comes to ordering the right part. Hexlox‘s new patent-pending HexThru Axle covers all thru-axle standards in just 3 sizes with a Front 15, a Front 12 and a Rear 12. They call it the Perfect Fit System. The length adjusts to perfectly fit your thru-axle dropout width via a telescopic two-phase thread and the interchangeable threaded end flips to fit any fork or dropout. Expect these to drop in October with a €45 pricetag.
