Our Webshop Has Some New/Restocked Items and Some On Sale

To make room for our forthcoming Spring collection and to commemorate our new office space, we’ve put our remaining t-shirts on sale. After we did inventory when we moved, we found a dozen more Caliché hats in our stock, some AARN rings in 28t and 32t, so they’re on the site as well.

We also launched a few new products including an obsidian wool Snake Sock, new pinecone colored Yucca Socks, a new Radavist edition Dynaplug Racer Pro in obsidian, and Dynaplug refills.

As always, everyone here at the Radavist thanks you for your continued support!

We’re Taking President’s Day Off…

We’re Taking President’s Day Off…

… to move into our new office! Since relocating to Santa Fe last March, we’ve been looking for an office to run the webshop out of and to solidify the life/work balance. We finally found one, only a short bike ride from our house, so we’re going to be spending the day moving into it. We’ll see you back tomorrow with plenty of Radar and great Reportage to whet your appetite. I hope you can enjoy this day off.

New 44RN MTB Chainrings and Camp Hats in Stock!

Well, we finally received our last two products for our Winter drop. In stock now are two sizes in our new 44RN MTB chainrings (28,32t) as well as three colors in our new camp hats. All are in stock in the Radavist Webshop and we’ll be shipping all week!

Apologies for the slow-trickle of products over the past few months but as you’re well aware, Covid-19 has caused severe delays in production. Thank you for your continued support.

Our New Hats Are Dropping Tomorrow

Our New Hats Are Dropping Tomorrow

It’s been a long time coming but our new hats are finally ready to hit the shelves of our webshop tomorrow at 12noon MST. These hats are made in the USA by our friends at LAND who did our branding, feature a super soft, brushed cotton, a brass clamp closure, jackal embroidery, and have a very similar fit to our old hats. The color options are Cottonwood bloom (natural), Yarrow (gold), and Caliche (brown).

These will retail for $45, so a little cheaper than our last hats made by Fairends, who have closed up shop as a result of Covid-19. As always, we’ll be shipping these, worldwide. Thanks for your patience and continued support!

The Radavist’s Top Articles of 2020

The Radavist’s Top Articles of 2020

Coming off a week of downtime after one of the most tumultuous years of our lives has brought clarity to this annual retrospective. To be honest, I had no idea what to expect as Covid-19 gripped the global community and changed life as we know it. We looked to our new home in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the surrounding areas for inspiration, pinged our good friends for their penmanship, and listened to communities that have been underrepresented in cycling. What resulted were a lot of articles that tackled some big issues and the realization that we still have a lot of work to do.

I’ve spent the past few weeks mulling over our content and have compiled a list of some of the most meaningful and fun pieces from the past twelve months.  Read on below for a selection of memorable moments from 2020, in chronological order…

We Stocked A Few More Items For Our Winter Drop

We Stocked A Few More Items For Our Winter Drop

We made the decision to drop our Winter launch a few weeks ago, even though we had a few products still out in production. Our hope was to stock both designs of our DeFeet Woolie socks (in Juniper and Sand), our new decals, alongside the new Radavist hats. Well, the socks and decals are stocked but unfortunately, we won’t receive the hats until the new year, so they’ll be stocked in a month. We’re sorry to trickle out new products after many of you already placed orders and we thank you for your patience. This year has been a real struggle to make anything and in the future, we’ll strive to be more on top of it. Thank you!

Our shipping person has been packing orders around the clock to ensure you get them in time for the holidays. We’ll be shipping every day until December 20th, so get your orders in ASAP to ensure delivery.

With the holidays approaching quickly, we’re shipping all week to make sure your order gets delivered before the 25th of December. The demand has been at an all-time high, so thanks for your support but if you’re looking to have your order in time, we suggest placing it sooner than later.

the Radavist 2020 Winter Drop

the Radavist 2020 Winter Drop

This has been a long time coming. We’ve been waiting on all of our Winter Drop products to trickle in from various suppliers and we’ve finally got enough to release them in time for the holidays. Fresh in stock are three new bottle designs, a new Nalgene design, four long-sleeve tees, and two sock designs, all ready to ship to you today.

We’re particularly proud of our collaboration with artist Evan Weselmann on the “Desert Trip” graphic.

While this should be no problem to get domestic orders to you by X-mas, it might take a bit for international orders, thus we cannot guarantee delivery by the holidays for international orders.

Head on over to the Radavist Webshop to order.

John recently sat down with the team of the Adventure Audio Podcast to talk about the genesis of this very website. If you’ve got an hour to kill, it’s worth the listen for some background information on not only the intent of the Radavist but its place in the larger cycling industry.

We Restocked the Webshop with More Socks, Shirts, and Some New Goodies

Our summer drop shirts sold out in only a few hours and the same for a few of our sock designs. For that, we can’t thank you enough, so we decided to restock those products plus a lot more. In lieu of the black Eternal Jackal shirt, we chose a Cobalt blue shirt with a bone-white natural ink. The Chamisa and tan Shred Lightly shirt designs are also back in stock.

We also added grey Voile straps, more Yucca and Cloud socks, and finally, those beautiful Buffalo Turquoise Ringtail desert hats!

We also restocked our Nalgene bottles and a few other cycling bottle designs, including the OGOD Radavist shorties, Golden Sunrise Roadrunner, and Big Deserted bottles. Everything is in stock now and shipping this week in our new eco-friendly packaging materials from EcoEnclose.

From everyone involved with the Radavist, we thank you.

Shipping Updates!

Shipping Updates!

Since our Summer Drop last week, we’ve been busy getting your order out to you. It’s been overwhelming in a good way! There are a few notes to make while we continue to pack and ship your orders. First, we’re not Amazon. We’re trying to offer the best shipping prices – direct from USPS – at no upcharge. We cover the shipping cost, materials and that’s it. There are also just two of us working to fulfill the orders, which includes maintaining the site every day. So if it takes us a few days to respond to your order emails, that’s why. Thanks for being patient. Read on below for a few notes…

The Radavist Summer Drop is Live

For this year’s summer drop, we worked with our new LAND-designed graphics and artist Cari Carmean to design socks, pocket t-shirts, Voile straps, patches, and new bandanas. All are in stock now at the Radavist Webshop and will be shipping every week on Wednesdays.

We’re really proud of this drop and can’t wait to see what you think! Check out more photos below and all the products at the Radavist Webshop.

One note: we have more Fairends caps, Nalgenes, and water bottles on the way, but they’re at least a month out…

Next Monday, July 6th, we’re going to be restocking our webshop with tons of goodies. We have three pocket tees using our new LAND graphics, with layout and colors designed by Cari Carmean on super soft shirts. There are also lots of socks, custom Voile straps, handkerchiefs, and more. Save some cash over the holiday weekend because even though we ordered lots of each item, who knows how long they’ll stick around… Check out two more previews below.

Site Improvement: Related Articles

We’ve been working on some site improvements during the pandemic and have rolled out the first major update to the UX of the Radavist. While Disqus has a “related content” feature built-in, Grant worked on a more intelligent version, giving you six related articles. Now when we post about Black Cat’s new gravel bike, you can find our Shop Visit to their workshop below in the Related Articles. Same with our Grinduro post today. Wanna see some coverage from past events? Check out the Related Articles.

We’re still ticking off items on our list and when we implement design improvements, we’ll make an announcement here. Thank you for your patience! :-)

We’ve Got a Few New Items in Our Webshop

We’ve Got a Few New Items in Our Webshop

Due to the pandemic, our “spring” launch might have to be a summer launch. We’ve had these two products for a few months now, waiting on new shirts, jerseys, and socks but it looks like it will be a few months until the rest of these items will be made so, in the interim, we just posted these to the shop. The first is a 22″ x 22″ bandana, featuring the Eternal Jackal logo, designed by our friends at LAND. It’s printed on grown in the USA organic cotton using eco-friendly orange discharge ink. That means you won’t actually be able to feel the ink. Once washed this bandana will be soft to the touch. These are made in the USA and printed by Industry Print Shop in Austin, Texas.

Next up is our Alpenglow bottles, inspired by the optical phenomenon that appears as a horizontal reddish glow near the horizon opposite to the Sun when it has just set beyond the horizon.

Both are in the webshop today and remember, we only ship on Wednesdays!
