Swiss Chalet: Eight Days of the Finest Swiss and French Downhill Mountain Bike Gems

May 22nd, 2012

Head buzzing from wine, stomach full of cheese, meat and bread, I careened haphazardly down the mountain, the Rhone Valley far below and a group of howling bike riders in the exact same boat as I following closely behind.

We were mid-way through an eight-day sampling of some of the finest Swiss and French downhill mountain bike gems. Some days took us to established bike parks, and other days to obscure trails hidden to the general public, and only discovered through a combination of bribing locals, studying maps and some good ‘ol fashioned luck.

The Viper 7: A Magical Video Tour

January 31st, 2011

This is the Viper. Our hydration pack that’s perfect for mountain biking. But how do all its fun features work? Just ask Bike Rumor. They put together a “magical video tour” of the Viper 7, and we liked it so much we’re posting it here. The pack even gets used in the snow, proof of Bike Rumor’s commitment to putting gear to the true test.

Enjoy!

Raptor: The “Bee’s Knees”

January 3rd, 2011

We’re happy that the Raptor was considered the “bee’s knees” by bike site 29 Inches. “Something I found incredibly useful, sturdy, comfortable, and impressive during my riding time in 2010.” Cheers to that!

Osprey Hydraulics Team Member Melinda Davie Comes Back To The Tahoe Sierra 100 Ultra Endurance Mountain Bike Race

November 4th, 2010

Having a goal is a good way to start the day. I started Saturday September 11th with the goal to complete the Tahoe Sierra 100 Ultra Endurance Mountain Bike Race. I wasn’t looking to do it in any time specifically, except that the organizer had put a limit of 14 hours on it. I attempted to do this event in 2009 and came very close but did not complete it. I learned a few things through that experience and after this past year of training, planning and competing in a few much shorter races I felt I was ready to tackle the event again.

Osprey Hydraulics Team Member Guillaume Lazure Gets Some Fall Mileage

November 3rd, 2010

They say that a fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer wave goodbye.

The colors set in and the trails disappear under a thick bed of red, green and yellow leaves. The trails that have been nice and dry for most of the summer turn into sticky, muddy terrain and the shinny roots stare at you, trying to make you slip on every turn. The hot summer days make way to chilling, dark and rainy days. When all these elements come together, it only means one thing — it’s time for epic rides!

Bikes Around the World: Hydration Packs in Afghanistan

October 5th, 2010

We just had to post this photo, taken by Shannon Galpin of Mountain 2 Mountain.

Founded in 2006 by Shannon, M2M is a non-profit that creates education and opportunity for women and girls in conflict regions. Today, M2M is a burgeoning nonprofit that has touched the lives of hundreds of men, women and children in Afghanistan. Not only has Shannon managed to launch projects across the war-torn country, but in 2009, she also became the first woman to ride a mountain bike in Afghanistan.

According to her, “apparently even dodgy Afghan boiled water tastes better coming through your hydration packs!” Thanks Shannon!
