Steve Smith Socks are Back – Chainsaw Pre-order

Steve Smith Socks are Back – Chainsaw Pre-order

Thank you to all that purchased a pair of the Steve Smith legacy socks during our last round of sales. The outpour of love for Stevie was apparent, which lead to us being sold out of product in only two days. We have received an abundance of emails requesting we bring in more inventory, so today we’re happy to announce the pre-order of the all new Steve Smith Chainsaw Sock.

For this round, we’ve opted to run a pre-order so everyone has a chance to get a pair, however, the pre-sale will only be available for the next week to allow for delivery as quick as possible.

We’re also opening the pre-order to bulk orders for events and retail so we’re able to further the donation potential and reach. All inquiries please email [email protected]

Important Note: We are a Canadian Company, so please bare with us on international shipments. To keep shipping rates low, we ship all packages via Canada Post Small Packet Air, which does not include tracking outside of Canada. Since we donate all the profits from each sale, we’re also donating our time by fulfilling hundreds of orders—we have absolutely no issues doing this whatsoever, it just takes time, so we appreciate your patience.

Whistler Bike Park Creekside Trail Expansion Now Underway – Video

Whistler Bike Park Creekside Trail Expansion Now Underway – Video

Whistler Creekside expansion
After many years in the planning and approval process, crews from three different trail building companies finally broke ground on the much anticipated construction of fifteen kilometres of new trails in the Creekside Zone. After opening this zone for bike park access in 2015, the Creekside trail expansion beginning now is the most ambitious development project in the park’s history and will be a well deserved enhancement to this zone.

Ready for 2018, five new trails are being built adding fifteen kilometres to the park’s trail inventory, equalling an increase of 20% more lift accessed riding. Accessed directly from the Creekside Gondola, from Garbanzo Express/Upper Whistler Village Gondola, and from Top of the World, the new trails will be a mix of machine-built freeride and hand-built technical single track suitable for the intermediate and expert level rider. The zone is being developed to ride well for both all-mountain trail bikes and DH.

Phase 1 build plan.

This mix of trail types will give the zone more diversity, allowing a larger range of riders the ability to access it while ensuring advanced riders keep coming back. All while maintaining the personality and atmosphere that makes Creekside so special.

The Dream Build Team

The new expansion will be split between three of the world’s premier trail building teams based in Whistler. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park Trail Crew will be tackling the main machine-built low intermediate trail as well as teaming up with Gravity Logic on a low footprint machine-built single track. Gravity Logic will build two additional trails including a hand-built single track and another low footprint single track trail accessed from Highway 86. Joyride Bike Parks will be taking the final trail and making it a machine-built intermediate freeride. The purpose of this all-star build team is to ensure the trails are built with individual flavours allowing for the most diversity and a fresh approach. Each will be uniquely built giving riders a new experience on each one.

It is anticipated that all five new Creekside trails will be ready to ride for next summer’s planned opening of the Creekside Gondola in June. It is also possible that some sections of the expansion will be available to ride before the end of this season but stay tuned for updates.

Hopefully more of this to come later this year.

Looking even further in the future, the Master Plan for Creekside includes a total of 56km of trails that stretch from tree line to valley floor giving riders even more options when descending from Top of the World and the Garbanzo Zone. In anticipation, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park Trail Crew are developing several new trails within the existing park for this purpose. But for now, 15km is a great start.

Riders arriving to Whistler this season can currently access the park from the Creekside Gondola and take advantage of free, secure underground parking, delicious Dusty’s BBQ, bike repair and shopping at GBB Creekside, and fewer lift lines.

Top of the World Update – Opening This Saturday

Thanks to Mother Nature’s warm and consistent temperatures so far this summer, along with some much needed acceleration by Trail Crew, riding from the summit of Whistler Mountain will be open this Saturday. There will still be many sections where the Top of the World trail will be covered in snow but Trail Crew has been able to remove as much as possible allowing riders to descend through the alpine. As the summer heat continues the trail will only get better and better.

To purchase your Top of the World ticket visit Guest Services or call 1-800-766-0449.

SRAM Introduces New Roam 60 Carbon Wheels

SRAM Introduces New Roam 60 Carbon Wheels

Press Release

SRAM Roam 60
SRAM Roam 60
The evolution of high-performance 29” wheel bikes is undeniable. From XC to DH, these bikes have proven to be incredibly capable, not to mention a ton of fun. Making great 29” wheels requires a purpose-built approach, because bigger without a purpose is not necessarily better. Developing a proper wheel for these bikes means understanding that this new wheel needs to capitalize on the quick-rolling properties they bring to the table, while still making them light, efficient, responsive and, above all, playful.

To accomplish this we’ve increased the spoke count, changed the lacing pattern, and engineered a new hub-shell design. The sum of these changes gives you a laterally stiff wheel that can smash berms and sprint out of corners, a torsionally stiff wheel that feels more responsive and accelerates faster, and a wheel that gives you the right amount of radial stiffness for best traction. And an added byproduct of the new ROAM 60 29 design is that tests show it to be really tough, too.

Faster. Tougher. Playful. More is better.

Simon Pagès Heads to Red Bull District Ride

Simon Pagès Heads to Red Bull District Ride

by Richkphotography

Simon Pagès has made it! The young Frenchman can look forward to a spot in the rider lineup for the legendary Red Bull District Ride on September 1-2, 2017, thanks to a great performance at the FMB Gold Event “GlemmRide Slopestyle” in Saalbach (AUT) last weekend. Pagès now belongs to the 20 athletes who will be dropping into the gnarliest urban course in the world and will be showing off his steeze in all five districts, whilst competing against the world’s best slopestyle riders in front of 80,000 spectators. The second FMB Wildcard for Red Bull District Ride is up for grabs in Spain at the FMB Gold Event “O Marisquino” on August 13. The FMB Wildcard is awarded to the highest ranked athlete, who has not yet qualified for Red Bull District Ride.

by Richkphotography

20-year-old Pagès has been extremely active this year and already competed at 10 different FMB World Tour Events. He also raised eyebrows thanks to stunning performances at 26TRIX in Leogang and Crankworx Les Gets a few weeks back. His experience seems to be paying off and we can expect a great show from Pagès in Nuremberg this September.

Congrats to a sensational performance, Simon! What does it feel like to know that you will be sending it with the world’s best on Red Bull District Ride’s legendary urban slopestyle course this September?

I am really happy that I will be heading to Red Bull District Ride this year! I was there in 2014 and it was just crazy. I can’t wait to be back on the Hauptmarkt!

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about Red Bull District Ride? What makes the event so legendary in your eyes?

by Richkphotography

It is an insane event! There will be so many fans lining the streets. The fact that the course is in the middle of the city and is very diverse makes it unique on the World Tour. I like these kind of courses because they are very different. They fit my riding style.

How will you prepare yourself for the FMB Diamond Event in front of 80,000 spectators?

It feels amazing when you ride down the course with all the people cheering for you. I don’t need to prepare for that especially. It is really motivating and helps you more than it is a distraction.

About Red Bull District Ride:

After five editions in 2005, 2006, 2011 and 2014 in Nuremberg and one appearance in Catania, Italy (2006), Red Bull District Ride has acquired a legendary status in the mountain biking scene. The world-class slopestyle athletes will be sending it in a unique urban setting and thrilling thousands of spectators.
