We Updated Our Website! Continued….

We’ll list the rolling updates here for you to note:

06.03.2019 Update: comment count added and masthead is now centered!

Next update: Gallery thumbnails, arrow navigation, lightbox

Yeah! It was long overdue and a long process but the Radavist 2.0 is finally live thanks to the hard work of Grant Blakeman! Well, it’s partially live. We still have a lot more updates to roll out but the new framework is in place. This post is merely here to allow you to give feedback and for us to give you a walk-through…

In Stock: the Radavist Strata Bottles

The latest bottles from us were inspired by sedimentary layers and geological diagrams, or maybe it was an old Coleman coffee canister? At any rate, the latest 26oz bottles feature a simplified color blocking in the perfect size for summer exploration by bike. Pick up a PAIR for $25 plus shipping, worldwide at the Radavist Web Shop.

From now until the end of April, take 30% off the entire stock of men’s and women’s jerseys. Head to the Web Shop and use the code “SpringJerseySale” to take advantage of the savings.

*this sale does not apply to the women’s road jerseys since those are made to order*

Product Re-Up: Deserted Big Oasis Bottles

Due to demand, we re-upped our 26oz Deserted Big Oasis bottles, perfect for the upcoming warm months. These are now in our Web Shop, where we’ll be slowly trickling out new products in the coming weeks. If you have a request for something, drop it in the comments and we’ll get to work on it. Don’t worry, more Fairends caps are on the way as well!

The Radavist’s 2018 Photographic Year in Review

The Radavist’s 2018 Photographic Year in Review

We’ve had a busy year at the Radavist and it wasn’t until I combed through each month individually that I could finally realize all the hard work everyone put in over here for the past twelve months. While much of the site is focused on gear in the form of products and bike portraits, my favorite pieces are always photojournals from rides, tours, and trips. There’s something wonderful about peering through the lens of a cyclist and hitching a ride along with them while they pedal along their route.

Compiled in this gallery is a photographic sample from 12 months of content, in somewhat chronological order. It’s trippy to flip through the gallery and see all the unique perspectives. In many cases, a photo is worth a thousand words!

There’s also a list below of the top posts from the site this year, running the gamut from riding in the desert to the WTF Bikexplorers Summit, exploring Crete, mixing snakes and divas in Puerto Rico and much more. They’re in chronological order, so if you haven’t read these articles, you really should!

In Stock: the Radavist Wool Socks in Jasper Green and Red As Well As Other Items!

Wool socks are a cycling apparel staple. Wear them year round and they’ll wick sweat in the summer and provide warmth in the winter. We love DeFeet’s wool socks because they blend nylon and polyester in their wool for increased durability and lifespan. We’ve got two color options this year, inspired by one of our favorite minerals found in the American West, green Jasper and red Jasper.

Each sock has our jackal on the side and the Radavist script logo on the foot. Made in the USA by DeFeet and in stock now at the Radavist Web Shop. We also restocked the long sleeve t-shirts in all sizes. We also have new 1″ Jackal lapel pins in stock too!

Please note: we will try our hardest to get these socks to you before Christmas, but there is no way to guarantee delivery before December 25th. Thanks for understanding!

Our Web Shop is Live!

Our Web Shop is Live!

We’ve been busy over the past few months, ordering products, and stocking up for our very first webshop. With staples like bottles and patches, as well as jerseys, hats, and other tidbits. All with enough stock for all. Head to the newly launched shop to check it out.

Please note: due to the insane response – seriously, thank you! – we’ll be back-logged on shipping. We’re pulling items now and will be packing and shipping throughout next week. You’ll receive an email when your order goes to the Post Office. Thanks for your patience!

The Radavist Web Shop: Now’s Your Chance to Weigh In

The Radavist Web Shop: Now’s Your Chance to Weigh In

So this is big news for the Radavist as come (hopefully) November, we’ll have a webshop, launching in time for the holiday season. We’re working on a few more site updates over the next 6 months as well, thanks to you, the readers who filled out that survey we offered up a few months back. There are limited financial resources to launch the store, so we want to make sure we stock the things you want the most and don’t worry, we’re vastly increasing the product supply. Our plan is to have it stocked year-round. Included in the list so far are all-new jerseys, long sleeve t-shirts, stem caps, water bottles, another run of Fairends caps, decals, and some other secret products.

I wanted to reach out and ask if there’s anything you’ve always wanted or a product you’ve missed out on in the past. If enough people chime in, it’ll greatly influence what we stock. Drop a line for a request in the comments!

SOLD OUT: Rad Rod Shirt and Bottle Package by Gerald Bowles

SOLD OUT: Rad Rod Shirt and Bottle Package by Gerald Bowles

Inspired by the great Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, artist Gerald Bowles created this graphic and it felt like such a great image for the Radavist, so we pinged our friends at FUN to print the design on a black Bayside, Made in the USA pocket t-shirt, and a “big gulp” Purist bottle. We’re selling these shirts paired with a set of bottles for $50 plus shipping. For those who don’t want a shirt, we’ll have some loose bottles we’ll put up after this package ships, so please be patient.

SORRY SOLD OUT!

Please note: International Shipping is expensive since this package exceeds the First Class limit of 15.9oz. We’re taking a hit on the shipping cost even at $25 for International Packages, so thanks for understanding. :-)

In an attempt to make your experience of this site better, we’re working on a re-design, with some new branding, and some new ideas, but I’d like to kindly ask to take a few minutes of your time to fill out a questionnaire we compiled in hopes of understanding how you, the readers, use this website. We’d also like to encourage you to write to our Contact email address with any concerns or critiques, again to make this a better place!

Also, the time has come to finally bring on some more authors, specifically women! So if you’re a female (femme) photographer and a writer, or perhaps a writer that can shoot photos too, please email our Contact email address with samples of your work and let’s chat!

You can find our anonymous survey at this Google Docs link!

SORRY SOLD OUT! YO 26oz “Long Bed” Bottles

Inspired by the 1980s Toyota DLX pickup body stripe decals and even Ivan Stewart’s own trophy trucks, these 26oz long bed bottles are just at home blasting through the deserts on a mtb as they are perched inside some King Cages on your road bike. Props to all the ill-shitty Toyota pickups, keepin’ it classy with the YO.

These are in stock now. SORRY SOLD OUT! A PAIR of bottles are $27.00 shipped in the USA or $37.00 shipped worldwide. Pick up a set below!

The Radavist’s 2017 Photographic Year in Review

Reportage

The Radavist’s 2017 Photographic Year in Review

At the end of each year comes a state of reflection over here at the Radavist. One where I look back at all the imagery created over the previous twelve months and begin to compile a visual catalog of this site’s many narratives. From Peru to Pennsylvania, the autodidact raconteurs who contribute to the Radavist do a damn fine job at documenting their lives, experiences and the people who make this tight community come alive.

This year, I attempted and failed at the year in review post multiple times. For some reason, the linear narrative felt too contrived, too forced. The content, or photographs rather, wanted to live on their own to tell their own tales and come alive once again. In the internet era, moments are often lost to the ephemeral experience of web publishing, which is why I find galleries like this so important to not only this website in particular but our community as a whole.

Please enjoy these photos, these vignettes into each photographer’s life experiences. Bear no mind to the captions, since altering those would in turn, alter their original Reportage. Instead use them to jump-start your mind, perhaps driving you to search back through the archives.

Thanks to the many authors who make this website what it is, continue to share the stoke and thank you, the readers, for coming back!
