Bombtrack Beyond +

I wish I could take my Beyond + to loops and trails at Pacific North West. Tuscany is awesome, but Beyond + have to go to some wild places!

Know Before You Go

” It doesn’t matter if you have made thousands of good calls – all it takes is one bad call and that is one too many. Some days the mountains are screaming GET OUT OF HERE and some days they are saying come on in – it’s time to party.” – Jeremy Jones

Do you know when to back off and when it’s good to go? The Know Before You Go avalanche awareness program will get you started down the path of learning the language of the mountains and becoming a better and safer rider.

The Utah Avalanche Center and the Colorado Avalanche Information Center have teamed up with Avalanche Canada, Backcountry Access, the American Avalanche Association, the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education, the National Avalanche Center, Sherpas Cinema, Red Bull Media House, Brainfarm, and others to bring you this beta which is unlike any other PSA you are likely to see.

Rab® Autumn/Winter ’15 Trailer

rab-logo

Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works. It’s this down to earth, honest approach that still informs the design and testing process linking us firmly to that modest beginning in 1980’s Sheffield. Those same qualities of innovation, integrity and function have endured, remaining at the heart of the Rab® brand today.
