Weekend Roundup: Fresh Goods from Apres Velo, Sufferfest, Boombotix, GoPro & Rottua
If you’re a fan of The Sufferfest, you’ll likely enjoy Apres Velo’s new collaboration. Five t-shirts pull humor and slogans from the entertaining training videos and put them on cotton or cotton/elastane tees. If you don’t get it, then you haven’t watched a Sufferfest video. Winter’s coming, check them out, then nab a shirt if it all comes together.
GoPro has just released their dual battery charger, letting you power up two batteries at once using any USB port. Plug the included cable into any computer, wall plug or car charger with a standard USB slot.
If we were a tech blog, we’d be freaking out about Boombotix’s new Sync app. There’s a lot going on here, so the video below is best for getting, uh, in sync with what they’re broadcasting. In short, image wirelessly playing your music through multiple Boombotix speakers or anything connected to an iOS device (headphones, the device itself or *gasp* another brand bluetooth speaker). Casual group rides just got a lot more fun.

We first found Rottua at Sea Otter earlier this year and have been wearing a pair of their sandals since about mid-summer. Their latest is the MTB-X model, available in mens and womens, with vegan friendly, performance Ultrasuede for upper lining and a Clarino lined footbed. Every pair is handmade and unique, with different tread patterns, wear levels and brands showing up. They fit a bit snug and take a little while to break in, but my own pair is holding up very well. Check ’em out at Rottua.com.
