Video: Mountain Biking Kirroughtree, Scotland

12.23.2013 //

Everything you need to know to go ride one of the BEST singletrack loops there is: Kirroughtree. In a moment of GoPro madness the Trail Ninja shuns the lure of the Mediterranean to man up and head North to Scotland to mountain bike in November instead.

It’s easy to get caught up in stereotypes, but as always, stereotypes fail to capture reality. Case in point: cross-country riders are technically unskilled. There are so many reasons why that “true-ism” falls flat, but rather than dissect it, I submit Pirmin Kuß, an XCO racer from the Black Forest region of Germany, who absolutely rips. Check this video out.

We live in a golden age of television. Well, sure, there’s still a ton of schlock “reality” TV series to avoid, but there are also standouts, such as Breaking Bad, which I recommend enjoying in a giant binge-fest, courtesy of this box set.

Video: Cedric Gracia’s Brush with Death

12.22.2013 //

I’ve been sitting on this video for the past few hours, wondering whether I should post it to bikemag.com After watching it, I’ve decided to publish it because I think there’s one very valid message in this video: when an accident occurs, stay calm. Gracia survived this because he and his friends saved kept their heads, got help and did what was in their power to minimize his blood loss.

The G-Form knees are fully flexible and stealthy enough to fit under a pair of jeans (if that’s your style). The Made-in-America pad features G-Form’s own Reactive Protection Technology, which (like D3o) is soft and pliable 99 percent of the time…right up until the moment that something slams into it. At that point, the molecules within the pad material instantly bind together, “stiffening to absorb and redistribute the energy.”

Video: Cold Rolled, Chapter 3–The Lake Superior Session

12.21.2013 //

“So, riding snow…It’s a little bit like mountain biking, but it’s a little bit like skiing…and not totally like anything else,” that’s how one rider puts it at the outset of Cold Rolled Chapter Three. There’s some great footage of lakeshore riding, grand vistas and the occassional flying Squirrel. Another cool chapter from a movie that proves that sub-zero temperatures and the risk of hypothermia aren’t enough to stop some people from having a good time on their bikes.

We like the Smith Pivlock Overdrives, which allow you to swap out lenses with no drama at all. What’s more, the Smith’s are incredibly comfortable (even the non-slip nose pads are adjustable) and mate well with a wide variety of helmets. Good eye coverage, easy to tailor to your tastes, excellent optics…the Pivlock Overdrive has a lot going for it.

In this final episode of the RockShox Game Of Bike for 2013 with Aaron Chase who has challenged one of the best tricksters around. For years Kirt Vories has pushed the limits of street riding finding stunts and obstacles out of things most of us would consider every day architecture. Who will win the final match up!?

The Thule Crossover, doubles as a compact roller bag and a backpack. It’s large enough to handle a couple days worth of clothes, yet small enough to qualify as “carry on” luggage on most airlines, which eliminates that annoying wait at the luggage carousel. What’s more, it’s packed with smart features that help take the hassle out of travel.

There’s a reason you see Feedback Sports’ Pro Elite red-anodized beauty holding bikes at races all over the world—they are damn good. Simple as that. I’ve been using mine almost daily for four years now and I’m still impressed by just how well it does its job.

Video: A Glimpse of Giant’s Latest Quiver Killer

12.18.2013 //

Giant’s new Trance Advanced SX 27.5 is a bit of a quiver killer. The lightweight, 5.5-inch travel bike is incredibly capable. All day grunts in the outback? You bet. Punishing descents? Sure. Fast-paced cross-country rides? Absolutely. Here’s a quick pick at a bike that impressed us during our testing for the Bible of Bike Tests, in Sedona, Arizona.
