The next 100 Copies art print is to be the last for 2016 and comes with its own poem of inspiration. Titled Tree of Joy, it takes technique from the traditional Chinese blowing ink painting method and mashes that up with the thought of leaving just a tire track and a splash behind on the bike. Thomas Yang created the original artwork carefully blowing the pooled ink into the form of the tree and cyclist. Watch a clip of its creation after the break, plus get an overall look, pricing, and availability…

Review: Bluegrass’ Wapiti D30 Knees and Elbows are light, flexible and protective

Bluegrass Wapiti D30 knee pad

Bluegrass Wapiti D30 pads, rider in chute

It’s always easy to sum up what we want from our bikes or gear. A good set of pads should be comfortable, slim-fitting, lightweight and still highly protective…but it’s not always easy to find a set that does it all for you. For me, the Bluegrass Wapiti D30 knees and elbows came pretty close to hitting all the marks.

Bikerumor first checked out the Wapiti D30 pads when they were released in July. I got my hands on both the elbows and knees for testing purposes, and took them through the Whistler Bike Park for the summer.

In short I found the Wapiti D30 knees were comfortable, slim, and they stayed in place. The elbows, despite having almost identical construction to the knee pads, weren’t quite as comfortable or secure but definitely provide the feeling of being well armoured. And yes, I did eat dirt a couple times this summer…

Danny MacAskill takes riding creativity to a new level with a Wee Day Out

Earlier this year when we had a chance to catch up with Danny MacAskill at Sea Otter, he mentioned he had something in the works with Red Bull. At the time even Danny wasn’t sure exactly how it was going to work out calling it ‘quite the ambitious project.’ That’s all he would let on, but we’re assuming he was referring to his newest video, a Wee Day Out.  As usual, the riding is next level and the sound track is on point, but even for Danny, the riding is incredible. Certainly some of the most creative moves on a bike yet…

IB16: Bar Mitts Winter Bot keeps your water from freezing, sister company Tail Gater puts a table on your car’s tire

barmitts-winter-bot-bottle-insulator-extreme-road-tailgator-tire-tableinterbike-2016-568

Yes, you’ve probably seen the memes circulating by now – winter is coming. For some of us that means breaking out all the equipment we have to use just to stay alive in the coldest months. One issue that has always plagued riders in extremely cold temperatures? Freezing water. Ride at temperatures below zero and it won’t take long for that water bottle to become a block of ice.

Bar Mitts thinks they have the solution with their new Winter Bot. Basically a Bar Mitt for your bottle, the neoprene sleeve should keep your water liquid, and there may be a summer version in the works as well…

Arsenal Cycling’s 4Sync lights dazzle drivers with an eye-catching pattern

Arsenal Cycling 4sync lights, riders at night

It’s a bit ironic that the symbol for a good idea is a light bulb over one’s head, as there seems to be a never ending stream of cool new designs and concepts for bike lighting these days. Arsenal Cycling has come up with the latest approach, and this one’s based on neuroscience.

As their flagship product the company has created the 4Sync light system, comprised of one front and three rear lights that operate in sync. But the idea isn’t just about adding more lights, rather the 4Sync setup aims to catch drivers’ attention by presenting a pattern that is easily recognized by our eyes and brains.

If you’re still wondering why you shouldn’t just go and strap three random blinkers to your back, check out Arsenal’s promo video for visual proof of their pattern concept…
