Is Sam Hill the new “Duke Nukem”?

Is Sam Hill the new “Duke Nukem”?

It hasn’t exactly been the best kept secret on the planet but it is now official, Sam Hill has signed for the biggest UK Downhill Team for 2013. Nukeproof, a brand-name synonymous with the inception of mountain biking, was brought back to life recently by Chain Reaction Cycles. The brand offers great value for money and an ethos for racing that few others can match. We wish them the best of luck in 2013…podiums await we think or can we [...]

Tenn: Expresso Short Sleeve Jersey

Tenn: Expresso Short Sleeve Jersey

Continuing on with the Tenn Outdoors theme, we move on quickly to the Expresso Jersey. Expresso by name and expresso by nature…meaning it’s made from coffee! “The Espresso trail riding jerseys are made from recycled coffee grounds, yes coffee as in the drink! When permanently embedded into the high wicking fibre used to produce the jersey, coffee produces some amazing natural properties ideally suited to cycling, such as increased UV-Protection, fast drying and enhanced odour control. You won’t smell like [...]

The 2013 Orange 322 DH Bike

The 2013 Orange 322 DH Bike

Well the testing’s been done and the long awaited Orange 322 will now be available to purchase, here’s a low down on the spec and pricing The constant honing of the 22X series led to a string of World and National titles through the 2000s, and the 322 is the next step in our evolution of the long travel, single pivot design. Dropping the top shock mount through the downtube and using a low pivot position allowed us to achieve [...]

Sweet Protection

Sweet Protection

Body, knee, arm and head protection is a very important part of extreme sports and these day’s there’s a huge choice out there to go and spend your had earned cash on. So how do you sift out the good from the not so good, I’m not saying that there’s bad products out there but we all have our own brands we stick with because they work and fit our body parts.  My biggest problem with knee pads are that [...]

Scottish Bike Show Part 2

Scottish Bike Show Part 2

Right peeps, what better way to banish those back-to-work/school blues than to have a wee skive and check out some more goodies from the Scottish Bike Show last weekend? First off, the Magik Stem from MSC bikes. “What’s magic about a stem?” I hear you ask. Well, this stem doesn’t have any knee-unfriendly pinch bolts on the steerer. What it does have, and a classic why-didn’t-someone-think-of-that-before is an internal wedge (red) that clamps the steerer tube when you tighten up [...]

First look at the new Ancillotti FRY

When I saw that Steve had built up a new Ancillotti FRY for use in the up and coming Fetish Enduro Series I just had to go down and have a look.  It’s been a while since I last slung a leg over a lovely piece of Italian engineering, it would’ve been Gary Forrest’s race bike back in the day’s of ProbikeSport.  I have to say the bike looks lovely, what you’d expect from a hand built frame from Italy.  [...]

Tracey Hannah is back….

Congratulations goes out to Tracey Hannah who has just won her first race at the Australian national out at Canbera on her new Morewood . Here’s a chance to get to know a little bit more about the girl and the Hutchinson United Ride team on this video shot in Brisbane, Australia. It’s official Pink Bikes are faster… It’s always been in the back of my mind, racing on the World Cup Circuit again! What is even more amazing, I [...]

Nukeproof Critical Armour – Knee/Elbow

If your in the market for some new protection for those bits on the body that stick out a bit you might want to have a look at these bad boys.  The guys at Hotlines kindly sent over these for a good old beating/testing on the Tweed-valley hillsides. The truth be known I don’t usually wear elbow pads but recently with all the more extreme enduro type tracks that are appearing on the hills around the Innerleithen area it’s time [...]
