Meet the latest e-MTB from Kona; the Kona Remote 160, an electric evolution of Kona’s successful Process enduro whip.

Light weight tubeless valves are great. Broken light weight tubeless valves are not. For anyone that has ever experienced the sadness of a broken aluminum valve, Traben may have the answer.

Red Bull does road climb sprints as well as pumptracks & MTB backflips – Rampage wasn’t the only Red Bull bike event that just wrapped up… because what goes down, must also go back up. The Red Bull Hill Climb pitted some of the strongest riders (and lightest bikes) against one another on the hills
