First Impressions: WTB Tires

First Impressions: WTB Tires

There are a few things we didn’t know know about WTB. The first is that WTB stands for “Wilderness Trail Bikes” and the second is that they have been around from more or less the dawn of Mountain biking in Marin County, California in 1982. So moving on from their early innovations (the toe flips must have been a game changer), their new tires are looking bang up to date and worth a look if you are in the market […]

Tested: One up Components Bash Guide and 44T Ring

Tested: One up Components Bash Guide and 44T Ring

One Up 44T Ring 1 by 11 gearing has simplified our drivetrains and made them tighter, quieter and on a whole, a good bit smoother than the old double or triple ring setup. What we might have lost however, is some of the gear ratio that was offered by the old school setups. SRAM has recently stepped it up with the Eagle, featuring a gigantic range of gears at an equally large cost. One Up have always been at the […]

Review: Altura attack three 60 shield short, Phantom Short Sleeve Jersey and undershorts

Review: Altura attack three 60 shield short, Phantom Short Sleeve Jersey and undershorts

Altura are a core part of the Zyro group, based in Darlington. They developed their brand name by producing very functional gear, but perhaps not always regarded as the most stylish. Over the last fews they have steadily became “cooler” and within their range you can now find items to keep all but the most diva-ish fashionista rider happy. The items they sent through to us were at the upper end of the price range that blend Classic Altura function […]

Origin Raww LE Pedal Review

Origin Raww LE Pedal Review

When Lukan from Origin Bike got in touch via Top UK downhiller Rob Smith, we were intrigued. Pedals coming out of a component manufacturer in Bulgaria? When we got chatting with the team at Origin, it was clear they had a real passion to go with their obvious engineering nous and background, with Lukan having a masters degree in the subject. Having been a life long Easton Cully Pedal user , and with the likes of Burgtec making some superb […]

Fort William Day 3: Tech from the pits

Fort William Day 3: Tech from the pits

Whilst riders were qualifying , we took a tour around the Fort William pits to see what interesting bits of bike bling were on show. … First up was the lonely looking number 3 plate , on the stand in the Specialized pits. Loic Bruni’s Demo may be stood there for the next round or two, but he is a rider we can be confident of having a quick return to form. In the pit setup opposite, Troy Brosnans Demo […]

Bike Check: Peaty’s “Last orders” V10

Bike Check: Peaty’s “Last orders” V10

There aren’t many people who really fulfil the term “legendary” . Steve Peat is a man who certainly does, with a career in the sport spanning further than the age of a fair amount of his competitors. To celebrate his departure from World Cup downhill racing, Santa Cruz teamed up with an old friend of Peaty’s to give him a bike worthy of his final race, a fully custom tartan theme, fitting for his Fort Bill send off. California dreamin’ and […]

Just landed: One up Components Bash Guide

Just landed: One up Components Bash Guide

One Up Components have been making a name for themselves for creating products that people need, that shed a lot of the excess money wasting and just do the job well. Richie Rude has been putting their latest Bash Guide to the test in the EWS and again first impressions seem good; simple, neat and durable looking . The guard will work for different size chainrings which I guess is great for riders looking to swap to a smaller front […]

Just Landed: Altura and Scott

As the height of the UK summer approaches, many of you will be looking for that new look out on the trails – don’t pretend you don’t want to look the part! Aside from vanity, some kit does serve a purpose and this new range from Altura certainly fits the style with function category. Dan from Zyro sent us through a range that, on first impressions we like the look of. We’ll be testing these out over the next month […]
