Great Days 4: Chile Part 3 – Finding The Unexpected in Chillan

04.30.2014 //

After the race dust settled, disco music fizzed, and athletes wounds started to heal, the Smith team took off south heading into the unknown hoping to discover more wild trails, breathtaking views and experience much more of the welcoming Chilean culture. They found bamboo forests, volcanic rich soil, and some unbelievable trails in Chillan. This time with a lot less bloodshed…

Tested: Magura TS8 R Elect

04.30.2014 //

That’s right, dear reader. With the Elect system active, this fork will lock and unlock dozens, even hundreds of times in a ride, at its own will. While this may sound like a slippery slope toward these machines getting too smart and eventually enslaving all of humanity, please remain calm. This fork is nothing to fear.

Bike Test: Specialized Camber Expert Carbon Evo 29

04.29.2014 //

The Camber is a bike you should know about. It could easily be the flagship bike of some manufacturers’ model line-ups, but in Specialized’s stacked all-star cast the capable Camber has had to remain content with its steady supporting role.

TESTED: Dakine Caliber Jacket

04.25.2014 //

Dakine has stepped up its game in the rain jacket department with the Caliber. It fills the void in the lineup for a technical feature-laden waterproof shell. While previous Dakine rain jackets have been solid, they were still not my first choice for big high-country adventure rides where the likelihood of getting pummeled by weather for days was a given; those duties were typically handled by the likes of Patagonia, Arcteryx or Helly Hansen. With the Caliber, however, Dakine has a legit alternative.

Video: Great Days 3 – Chile Part 2 – Questioning Your Limits

04.23.2014 //

This (somewhat graphic) video is the second of a three-part series by Smith Optics that brings you through the last few days of the Andes Pacifico Enduro stage race with an unexpected hospital visit to keep things exciting. A blind course makes it an even playing field, but also a game of question on how hard racers should and can push themselves around every turn. Viewer discretion is advised…if you go lightheaded at the sight of blood you SHOULD NOT WATCH the video. If not, take a look for a raw and real view into the highs and lows of enduro racing…

Showcase: 6 Shoes To Kickstart Your Ride

04.22.2014 //

The Mavic Crossmax Enduro shoe was designed for, as the name implies, enduro racing—which in fact, means that it’s perfect for most of us—the everyday mountain biker. Not long ago, if a mountain bike shoe was good off the bike, it was crap on the bike, and vice versa. Enduro racing is spawning the seemingly obvious marriage of these two extremes.
