Roland’s Wearpro Microphone Adds Your Voice and 3-D Audio to GoPro Videos

Roland wearpro microphone, on model

Before Claudio Caluori’s hilarious World Cup course previews came along, I could understand people thinking “Why would I want to hear myself talk during my biking video? It’ll just sound like disjointed hooting and hollering while I try to concentrate on riding.” Now that we all know the entertainment value of doing exactly that, let’s check out how Roland’s new Wearpro microphone can help you capture high quality, real time audio from your GoPro.

In short, the Wearpro is a wearable device that provides high quality 3-D audio capture from several of GoPro’s recent models. Your voice combined with real-world audio adds excitement and realism to point-of-view videos, and with the included mic clips the Wearpro is also ideal for video blogging, interviews, or webcasting.

It’s been a pretty heated week with a mostly liked new bottom bracket standard with folks like White Industries, Chris King & Paragon Machine Works behind it and a dedicated moped E’Bike race at North America’s Largest consumer event. Regardless, new stuff from Ventana, LeMond, Leatt and others will keep you smiling.

Take a deep breath, fill up your coffee, (if you want to make it through all the comments), and head past the break to see what the heck has been going on…..


Whoa! 2016 Sea Otter Classic Stirs Things up by Adding an eMTB Race to Their List of Events!


No joke. The organizers of the Sea Otter have added an eMTB race event to their traditional lineup of Downhill, Dual Slalom, Cross Country, Short Track and Enduro events to the upcoming 2016 event in April. Taking place in and around Laguna Seca’s race track, the eMTB race will be a time-based race that lasts 60 minutes and is said to be a sort of hybrid of short track and cross country racing with a few road descents, single track trails and a bit of climbing. It is listed a non-sanctioned event so no race license is required, but there is prize money to be had. There is no list of restrictions as to the equipment you can use which might make it even more interesting.

Given the controversy of whether e-mountain bikes even belong on trails or not, organizing an eMTB race is a big move by organizers at such a large event. Is the charge being led by e-bike manufactures trying to edge their way further in to acceptance? How will this go down? Will we hear cheers…. or boos from the crowd? Let us know what you think about it in the comments.

Tired of the same old views from your POV cam? Want to see more of the sights surrounding your ride? The 360Fly tosses out something completely different by doubling the standard “field of view” of standard POV cam’s, incorporating an accelerometer to control the lens’ direction, and allowing you to swipe the video around on your phone while viewing it.

Fitbit Surge GPS fitness tracker sports watch adds Jens Voigt as brand ambassador and product tester TiGr mini lock, on front wheel and frame

As the weather shifts, the wind chills, and the leaves fall, we enter into the worst day of the year for some, as others excitedly scramble trying to remember where they…. or someone else put their light charger. In the mean time, we had everything from awesome to odd this week. Bike locks are simply not what they used to be and TiGr, Abus and Hiplock brought us their own take. Sufferfest and BKool create new ways to make emerging from the depths of your pain-cave harder than ever, and a new dropper….. err, stem from 3SFtech.

So sneak a handful of your kid’s trick-or-treat candy, (but don’t be these parents), and look to see what you missed this week….

World Bicycle Relief and SRAM Partner for Stem Cap Support


Stem caps are a crucial part of your bike. Without them, in most cases you would be forced to ride with a loose headset, or worse – the entire front end would come apart. They also happen to be an easy way to personalize your ride. From Niner’s YAWYD, to countless other carbon, anodized, or painted caps there seem to be limitless options.

Now, stem caps are starting to be used for the greater good. Following in the footsteps of NICA, World Bicycle Relief and SRAM are partnering up for a new stem cap that can actually help change the world…
