GearPatrol.com – Featuring Syncro 10 – August 21, 2014

August 21, 2014

Take 104 miles of dirt road, pavement and single track; mix in over 12,000 feet of elevation gain; sprinkle in oxygen-deprived mountain air and — voila! You’ve got the Leadville Trail 100 MTB. Say what you want about this race and its shortage of technical challenge. It’s still one tough, long mother. And that means you need enough good, lightweight gear to be self-sufficient for long stretches. Here’s the gear that got me through my first crack at Leadville, with all limbs intact and under the maximum allotted time.

BikeHugger.com – Featuring Rev 1.5 – August 19, 2014

August 19, 2014

Last month I entered the High Cascades 100 mile mountainbike race, in Bend OR. I don’t frequently race more than two hours, and as my participation in the Gran Fondo Leavenworth so thoroughly demonstrated, I am prone to bad cramping in such long, hot competitions. It’s not really the heat so much as I just don’t think about drinking as soon and as often as I should…

I looked about for the right pack, but it wasn’t until I was surfing the Osprey webpage that I found something that met my requirements for mountainbike racing, even though it’s marketed towards trail runners. The slim Rev1.5 pack (size S/M) weighs about a pound with the included hydration bladder and holds just 1 liter of water. The shoulder straps have some convenient but small mesh pockets that can fit gel sachets/flasks or energy bars, but the only other storage is a small zippered pocket atop the bladder compartment. Thin straps and elastic, mesh “webbing” hold the pack tight to your body along the sides of your chest, while two elasticized straps stretch across your chest. Once adjusted, the weight of the pack and water sits high, level with your shoulder blades. It moves with your body yet stays in place, and in hot conditions it doesn’t feel like it’s trapping heat and sweat all across your back…

Liftopia.com – Featuring Kode ABS – August 14, 2014

August 14, 2014

My challenge: Choosing 10 items worthy of a closer look at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. So many outdoor companies have “stepped up their game” with new innovations or improvements this year, it was mind boggling to pick the best…

The Osprey Kode series packs are designed for snowsports enthusiasts. Configured to carry a helmet, skis, and self-rescue gear, it is well thought out with just the right amount of features, including an insulated hydration pouch. I tested it last season with good results.

Now, an ABS avalanche airbag system compatible model of the Kode is available. Full of the same features as the original Kode, the back of the ABS model opens up to receive the airbag system which is sold separately…

GoGumption.com – Featuring Atmos AG and Aura AG – August 14, 2014

August 14, 2014

At every Outdoor Retailer, the question is always the same, “Have you seen any game changers?” In an industry often overrun with hype and hyperbole, the new Osprey Atmos AG (AntiGravity) represents a paradigm shift in the way people will think about suspension systems. The fourth generation of the brand’s ventilated pack features a unique “AntiGravity” back system along with the world’s first fully ventilated hip belt. The entire back panel of Osprey Atmos AG is a single piece of suspending webbing that floats away from the pack itself distributing weight evenly over every contour of your body. The result? More cushion, greater breathability, and a pack that works with the body through dynamic movements.

Available as the Atmos AG (for men) and the Aura AG (for women)  the packs will come in 50 and 60-liter versions..
