In 2012 we visited three completely different parts of the world to make a free DVD. The idea was to bring together different riding styles and different cultures and make a video that was as interesting as the riders involved in it.
We released the OZ seat with the intention of creating an all round minimalistic pivotal seat. We wanted it to be comfy but more importantly it should be strong enough underneath and look like its going to compliment any bike set. (more…)
Phil Demattia was also one of the lucky ones to get on a plane at the start of the year and fly to somewhere hot. Heres a sick little edit Will Evans made of their time there.
‘Dynamics are everything’ is a really famous quote, well at least it is now because I just said it. Its also very vague and I dont expect you to take me seriously. What I do expect you to take seriously is the all new Dynamic Front Hub. We had been wanting to offer a narrow flange front hub for some time, and by narrow I mean the flanges sit closer together. The advantage to a narrow flange design is the spokes are kept further towards the center of the wheel, and so are out of danger from grinding. The Dynamic’s hub shell is CNC’d from 6061-T6 alloy, and has just 27mm from hub center to flange center. It rolls incredibly smoothly thanks to a pair of high end fully sealed Japanese bearings.
Even though the spokes are sitting in a safer position, we’d still recommend running a hub gourd if you’re a rail boss, same goes for ledges and coping. We have a specific Dynamic guard, CNC machined from 7075-T6 alloy so it can take the beating rather than your wheel.
head here and get those specs.
One of our favorite projects over the past year has been the development of the Jaw rim. It was a weird one at first, because we were essentially designing a rim that would be for brakeless riders only. The idea was too good not to put on the back burner, so we flicked the light to green and got to work. (more…)
Made from the frozen tears of a virgin unicorn stolen from the rings of Saturn. No, no, wait thats something else. The Vent sprocket is made from 6061-T6 alloy and features some of our finest CNC machining yet. The Vent offers a simple and smooth look that compliments any set-up thanks to its unique three spoke design. Each of these spokes are internally machined to reduce weight, dont worry though, we did it in a way that doesn’t compromise the overall structural strength. These high end pieces of samurai weaponry come in either black, blue or high polished finish. The Vent also has a sinked adapter which makes for better chain alignment. (more…)
