"Wild about Argyll" by Steve Bate

"Wild about Argyll" by Steve Bate

It was quite a challenge to convince Ibrahim to head to the south west coast instead of the north west, like we usually do for adventures in Scotland. We’ve shared many outings, climbing and biking in the north west, as it offers endless possibilities for people in search of remote adventures. But heading towards the big city of Glasgow instead of away from it, ran against the grain of our long time adventure history. I’d come across the Bike Packing Scotland website, when they had just released a short film called Wild about Argyll. Apart from getting...


GETTING TO THE HEART OF CYCLOCROSS...

GETTING TO THE HEART OF CYCLOCROSS...

We started working with Gosse almost exactly a year ago, to help us better understand cyclocross as being one of the most demanding disciplines out there on your equipment - especially your wheels! Every sponsorship avenue we explore, must revolve around the principles of innovation and development. Working closely with Gosse is no exception. The fact that he's a super nice guy & a pleasure to be around... well that's just a welcome bonus


IS BIGGER BETTER? HUNT WEIGHS IN ON 650B VS 700C

Disc brakes have opened up many possibilities. Not only are riders fitting wider tyres to their bikes across almost all disciplines in cycling, but some are also even choosing smaller-sized 650B wheels combined with higher volume tyres. Generally speaking, 650B is for bikes which have clearance for wide tyres and are disc brake compatible. With the same sized disc brake rotor, riders are able to vary the diameter of rim they choose. Most riders will now choose between either 700C or 650B rim diameters. With the advent of gravel riding, for riders who are venturing down the paths less travelled, the extra tyre volume is very appealing. The benefit? To take the edge off rough paths/bridleways. So, is 650B for you?

ON THE DROPS INTERVIEW WITH TYDEMEN NEWMAN

There are two things you need to know before you meet Tydeman. First, he's probably faster than you. Second, you'll be stretched to find someone who gets so stoked on riding. The combination of these two factors makes for a dangerous mix. So we decided at the very last minute to see what makes Tydeman tick as we wrap up the Hill Climb season.


FIND YOUR PERFECT MATCH: ENDURO WIDE VERSUS TRAIL WIDE WEIGH IN

FIND YOUR PERFECT MATCH: ENDURO WIDE VERSUS TRAIL WIDE WEIGH IN

MTB is such a varied discipline. From fast flowy singletrack linked together by fire roads/bridlepaths to all-out-all-in steep descents filled with rocks, jumps and bumps - you need the right tool for the job. This is what inspired us to create the XC Wide, Trail Wide and Enduro Wide. Each of these is specifically designed for a certain type of riding. But what one is for you?
