On the couch with the Evoc Bike Bag


This week on the couch we interviewed and tested the lovely and good looking Evoc Bike Bag.

Here are what some other people had to say:

“This structurally strong canvas bag has been well designed to hold and protect a road or mountain bike with a minimum of fuss”. – Jonny Cooper from The Telegraph web site

“I expected to have my hands (and shoulders) full with extra baggage, so I wanted a bike case with wheels that would make long walks through the terminal easier. Enter the EVOC, which is pliable and packable into a rental car when empty, easy to pack, lightweight, yet with a base frame and wheels for rolling through the terminal.”- Mavic communication manager Zack Vestal

Tech Tuesday – Race Face Next SL Crank


Today we are going to look at the Race Face Next SL Crank:

Available in shop and online.

“At an actual weight of just 378 grams for the 175mm length arms that I tested, the Race Face Next SL crank arms are insanely light.”

“Many folks, myself included, when they heard about how light the Next SL cranks were, questioned whether they could handle the rigors of modern enduro racing. Rest assured that Race Face engineered the spindle to twist up and kink long before the crank arms are pushed to their failure point. At any rate, the cranks shook off the months of abuse dished out by the rocky geology of San Luis Obispo trails, including my propensity to pedal through rock gardens and seek out jumps. I should also mention that the narrow wide chainring never derailed on even the rockiest descents.”

On the Couch with the Helly Hansen Terrak Shoe


Our First “On the Couch Interview” with the Helly Hansen Terrak trail running shoe

Here are some of the things that people had to say:

“If your looking for a super soft, light weight, low profile trail runner which provides less cushioning while keeping your feet closer to the ground and provides great movement, comfort and very flexible at affordable price for everyone..”
Trail running in the Wicklow Mountains

“Overall lightweight construction. Low heel to toe drop and aggressive lug configuration really lets you fly on the trails. Upper was breathable and had high-wear areas protected with added material giving extra protection on a longer shoe life.”
Trail running Canada

“Protecting the foot from the impact shock a premium EVA midsole provides lightweight comfort and support whilst cushioning the forces of impact to provide a comfortable transition through your gait cycle.”
