Factor Bikes: The Team Amani OSTRO

The Amani OSTRO Gravel design was based on the colors found in the landscapes of the Rift Valley in Kenya and plays off the Team Amani kit colors for 2023. The stylized print for the forks contrasts the main body colors and is based on a Cheetah print pattern. Cheetahs are found throughout the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Rift Valley Province in Kenya and are a true symbol of speed and athleticism, not unlike the riders on Team Amani. The design is playfully bold and represents the spirit of the East African riders.

Canyon Grizl CF SL 7 Throwback

Canyon leans into the phrase “gravel bikes are just XC bikes from the 90s” with this new limited edition Grizl build kit. While this looks like a standard Canyon build kit, those DT Swiss shot-peened finished wheels look great. Check out more at Canyon.

Specialized Recon ADV Shoe $225

Look good, feel good, ride good – and adage as old as cycling itself… That’s the idea behind the new Recon ADV, where riding in style is just as important as the actual ride. Recon ADV is suited for the rider who values adventure, time on the bike, and needs an all-day shoe that will keep going when the gravel ends. Recon ADV’s excellent walkability is made possible by STRIDE toe flex technology, providing a more natural feeling for off-the-bike adventuring.

  • STRIDE toe flex technology allows greater toe flex for steep inclines and improved walkability
  • Laser perforated upper features microfiber backing for better moisture management and supple feeling
  • Ride or hike in confidence with a TPU mudguard that offers protection from stone strikes
  • Pontoons create a stable pedal platform as well as aiding walking feel
  • Greater SlipNot rubber tread coverage on sole that’s optimized for gravel traction
  • Features proven Body Geometry technology like the Varus Wedge to maintain efficient and comfortable hip, knee, and foot alignment while riding

Revel Bikes Releases the Rodeo

This week, Revel Bikes introduced the “Rodeo”, the world’s first fully 3D-printed carbon fiber bike. While, yes this is a downhill bike, and a conceptual one at that, the Revel Rodeo is a multi-year passion project of Adam Miller (Revel Bikes), Chris Canfield (CBF suspension inventor), and Jordan Haffener (Revel Bikes Senior Engineer). The Rodeo was designed by Revel and manufactured in partnership with 3D Printing pioneer, Arevo Inc. While purely a concept bike and not currently for sale, the Rodeo exists as a groundbreaking example of what is possible with modern additive manufacturing and a handful of extremely passionate people in the Bicycle Industry.



Women Return to Cycling’s Biggest Stage

After more than 30 years of absence, women returned to the famous multi-day stage race in France in 2022, and stepped back onto the largest stage in cycling. Cannondale sponsored three of the 24 teams that entered the event. We filmed it all.

More Than a Race – our documentary on what happened – debuts March 14.
