GoPro Hero HD

Head cameras come in all shapes and sizes nowadays but back when I was filming a lot, the bullet cam attached via battery and av cables to your ‘AV in” enabled camcorder was dirigour for the film maker then. How things have changed! A few years back a little camera was introduced which seemed to me at the time a little gimmicky. Then mounted via a wrist strap…I couldn’t see the use for downhiller’s or riders as the movement would […]

Tea, bikes, muffins and Specialized stuff n’ stuff……

Well, would you buy one? What I’m talking about is the all new 2010 Specialized Enduro, that’s what. Probably one of the most overlooked “all mountain” bikes of the last few years, mostly due to some serious adverse press in its earlier guises. Dodgy shocks and dodgy forks are the favorite targets of the nay sayers, the vast majority of which have never even clapped eyes on the bikes themselves, but seem content to either listen to the gossip or […]

The Red Bulletin

Even with the abundance of images, words and comment that now proliferates the world wide web concerning downhill mountain biking, motocross and action sports in general, I still believe there is nothing better than a good magazine. One magazine that has surprised me in its content, production and integrity is from the energy drink giant Redbull. Believe me, I wanted to hate it as a panflet, fanzine or advert for a drink that offers nothing but cavities, filled with back […]

POC – Body Armour

Those crazy Swedes are always up to something, if it’s not building some of the craziest trails for the summer riding season then it’s busting big moves on their boards and skis come winter time. Right now when I think of Sweden, the POC name always comes to mind…if you’ve been locked away in a cupboard then this might be your first encounter. We just got a up a heads up on their 2010 range and well is looks great…protection […]

Nuke Proof – Reactor Eco headlamp

Well, it’s time for the light tests, we’ve got a few this winter and first up is the rather snazzy Reactor Eco, Nuke Proof’s attempt to impress at the lower end of the performance market. I say lower end because it’s reasonably priced at £199.99 so straight away, with their reputation already firmly cemented in various other cycle part and accessory areas, it looks like a great deal from a trusted company that already delivers well liked stuff……..or is it? […]
