Truth BMX crafts a carbon version of their Main Event frame

Truth BMX main event carbon, front angle

As a sport BMX isn’t that old, so if you’ve been in it since 1984 you’ve pretty much seen it all go from checkered Vans and mouth guards to featherweight carbon bikes and huge, high speed race tracks. Eric and Tony Spear have been in the BMX scene since those early days starting out as racers, then opening a bike shop, and finally producing a brand of their own.

Based in Mechanicsville, Md. Truth BMX offers a full line of frames and components and aims to provide riders with quality products at fair prices. While their Main Event frame was already available in both chromoly and aluminum, a new carbon fiber version has just been announced after a year of testing and development…

IB16: The hits can keep on coming with multi impact Kali MacDuff helmet

Matt MacDuff is up and walking – and showing off his new signature helmet.

Your bicycle helmet is an incredible piece of engineering. These days helmets are lighter, stronger, and getting safer all the time. But they have one big drawback. The majority of bicycle helmets are single impact. That means as soon as you take a hit to the helmet you should throw away the helmet and get a new one.

While the possibility of a multi impact helmet is very appealing, there are a number of hurdles in the way. But as materials improve, so do the chances of multi impact helmets becoming main stream. For now, they are somewhat limited, but Kali is taking full advantage of the technology for the new MacDuff dirt jump and BMX helmet…

OK, so let’s first get out of the way that Red Bull makes possible a lot of bizarre but very cool things. Now this latest project was to take Venezuelan bike rider Daniel Dhers up to the Bolivian salt flats at 3600m/11,800′ and build a set of ramps to get in some scenic BMX park riding. And the catch, besides the unique location and the elevation, was that the entire ramp setup would be constructed out of the salt that makes up the Salar de Uyuni flats. Jump across the gap with us to take a closer look, ogle some cool footage, and get a little more of the backstory…

Fix Manufacturing creates compact wearable multi-tools for urban riders, skaters and snowboarders

Fix manufacturing belt buckle multi-tools

On their Kickstarter campaign page, Fix Manufacturing states “No tool is worth anything if you don’t have it when you need it”, so they’ve come up with a handy way to ensure you have a multi-tool on hand all the time- they’ve built it into a belt buckle. Fix manufacturing’s line of compact multi-tools are designed specifically for action sports enthusiasts, with three different models intended for snowboarders, skateboarders, and bike riders.

As long as you wear pants or shorts while you skate, snowboard or ride you can conveniently carry a few key tools without adding extra bulk to your kit. Of course most cyclists don’t wear belts while pedalling, so the bike tool isn’t intended for trail or road riders covering long distances, but rather dirt jumpers/street riders/BMXers who usually ride in casual clothes. However, if you like the design and functions you can always buy the tool without the belt…

SE Bikes Public Enemy Big Ripper, side

Yeah Boyeeeee! If you’re a hip-hop loving BMXer, SE Bikes has created one dope ride to pay tribute to rap’s most influential group as you cruise around your hood. With politically charged songs like ‘Fight The Power’ Public Enemy became an angry but intelligent voice for black culture in America during the late 80’s and early 90’s. As a testament to their immeasurable impact the group has been constantly sampled, referenced or paid homage in hip hop music ever since.

Dropping this summer, the Public Enemy Big Ripper lets you show your appreciation for the group and kick it old school with SE’s classic floval tubing and Landing Gear forks, plus a special edition three piece padset adorned with Public Enemy logos and song titles. Break it down for the deets, yo…

Clink makes sure your tools aren’t left at home with U-Lock Multi Tool Combo

Clink Bike lock with built in tools

If you have to carry a U-Lock, it might as well do something more than just lock up your bike. Right? That was Jon Schwass’ thought when he set out to create Clink. Part lock, part multi tool, all there when you need it. In this case, the Clink is definitely geared towards bikes with bolt on hubs as they often require a large 15 or 17mm wrench to make sure the wheel is firmly held in place. The tool is also built to clear a standard BMX peg to get to the nut inside – something many standard multi tools just won’t do…
