Understated and elegant lookbook from Trophy Clothing for the f/w 2013 season. The Japanese label does the timeless garage aesthetic at a high level, and always delivers when it’s time for visuals.
Here’s a promo vid for the UK’s dirt track racing series, sponsored annually by brands such as Deus, Sideburn Mag and Edwin. I have no real desire to track motos to the races, but if I did I think dirt track would be the spot… looks like a ton of fun and the bikes are right up my alley.
‘New and now available, Nixon introduces a curated collection of goods inspired by and in partnership with Bolts Action.
This limited edition Nixon x Bolts Action partnership features a custom-built watch, hand-cut Horween leather bi-fold wallet, solid steel keychain and is available at select retail partners.’
The Bolts crew is ruling right now and this vid does it right, Jeremy Jones, Seth Huot, Andy Carter and co all making Salt Lake City look quite rad.
84/85 favourites Iron & Resin present their spring 2014 collection via a moto/surf/skate/camp/goodtimes roll through the Baja, jealousy inducing stuff from the SoCal label on a grey fall morning. If you don’t already know what the line is about get to know, it’s the kind of story and ethos we can get all the way behind, especially when it results in smashing desert roads and pool sessions with the homies (in some good looking kit to boot). Make sure to click though as we’ve got the full spring ’14 catalog, a lot of great imagery coming from a top brand.
Summer 2013 saw Arto Saari and crew head north from LA to Alaska, sponsored by RideApart… dream trip on a bike, with Victoria natives Kynan Tait and Harvey Foster along for the trip as well. Here’s the photo documentation from the lens of Saari and Tait, and aside from the bugs what a ride, one I’ve dreamed of myself more than a few times… between this and Doin’ It Baha a couple years back these guys keep killing it.
Here is the latest from New York brand FELTRAIGER with their fall/winter 2013 collection lookbook. The Lower East Side based brand is really on point with their new range of ‘New American Classics’ all made in the USA. The lookbook isn’t anything too wild but hell I don’t really need much more than a candy apple red Ford Falcon, a chopper, an American flag and a skate for good measure… oh and same damn good looking clothes.
‘Freedom was a key word in the early ages of American Motocross and, when the motorcycling scene really took off in the 1970’s, so did an era of moto style that’s just as popular now as it was back in the day.
But as much as we want to re-capture the essence of what off-road racing was in its early years, we care about our safety. Let’s face it: vintage riding gear was basic, uncomfortable and, overall… not very safe. Goggles? Same. Their fit was mostly a joke. They sucked air, they sucked dust. They sucked… period.
Because our heart is close to the vintage movement and because, as a goggle company, we care about your vision and style – at 100%, we felt something had to be done about both: enter The Barstow.’
Love this video from 100%, 2 stroke blappin across the desert… looks like rad times to me (and the goggles are pretty damn good too)!
As of late I have really been getting in to enduro riding and after years of street riding I soon wondered why I didn’t hit the dirt sooner? Living on Vancouver Island we have some great logging roads and single track close to home, something I have been taking advantage of as much as possible. Even more recently I have been out to the local MX track and soon realized that the dirt is calling me even more. So with that all said here is a look at the latest from the ‘MOTO the Movie series’, with ‘MOTO 5′. Here is a bit about the movie from its creators:
“Tag along with upcoming star Cooper Webb as he escapes to the exclusive Chaney Ranch to reflect on his first season as a pro; watch Tyler Bereman hone his bike skills in the Washingon Dunes and SoCal hills; see how Adam Cianciarulo shadows Ryan Villopoto in hopes of becoming one of the greats; go on a sand-blasting, soul-searching journey into the desert with X-Games superstar Ronnie Renner; watch Zach Osborne train to be one of the most diverse MX and off-road riders on the planet; follow Taylor Robert, Kyle Redmond, and Cody Wedd as they push each others’ ability to the limit on the wildest off-road freeride mission ever captured; get a whip lesson from Jimmy Decotis and Tom Parsons; wake up to lightning-filled skies with Blake Baggett as he annihilates Glen Helen all to himself; travel to the bottom of Australia with Josh Cachia and see what it’s like to ride without rules!”
Although the over the top Monster logos and overly ‘hype’ soundtrack aren’t particularly my thing the riding and cinematography look incredible, stoked for the full length set to release Nov. 19th.
