Influencers: Vanessa Hauswald

Hauswald is a spark of motivational energy, and has an infectious enthusiasm for her role that borders on zealotry. “I wanted to turn more teenagers on to the thrill, challenge and satisfaction of riding singletrack and being outdoors. I also wanted to help teenage girls gain confidence in their bodies, and ultimately, their lives, and I believe the bike is the perfect vehicle for that.”

The Lodown glove is all about getting intimate with your handlebar. In fact, Specialized’s marketing reads more like a condom wrapper with slogans like ‘second skin fit’ and ‘slip on design.’ There’s no doubt about it: This is a minimalistic glove, and I like it.

Sketch: Cascades Crusader

04.03.2014 //

Leavenworth, where the granite spires of the North Cascades roll into the plains of Eastern Washington, has been the scene of a decades-long fight between mountain bikers and the US Forest Service. Locals would build illegal trails in the hills above town, ride them for a short time, then the land managers would block them off, citing public hazard. This cycle would repeat, over and over.

No matter how excited we get about the next best widget, in the end it doesn’t really matter what we are riding, just that we are. A massive amount of work goes into creating this gear guide, but do we actually need any of this stuff? No. I’m looking at all the white space on the page below my blinking cursor, wondering what to write, because none of it matters. In fact, you should stop reading this immediately and…run to your shop and demand they put this group on your bike right away.

Video: Jared Graves’ Australian Adventure

04.02.2014 //

Jared Graves is one of the most well-rounded riders in mountain biking with success in 4X, downhill, BMX and now enduro. Giro visited Graves’ hometown and explored Queensland, Australia, with American enduro haunch Adam Craig and Kiwi freeride star Kelly McGarry to check out the trails and learn what makes Graves so fast. In addition to kangaroos and snakes we found Graves busy cultivating a cycling mecca in Toowoomba, with dozens of dedicated mountain bike trails, a booming bike club and a local race series.
