It’s Not As Good As Hurley – id10t

id10t along with Operation Zulu were (for my money) two of the most influential videos of the late 90s. This was well before POV action cameras like GoPro had hit the market.

It is great that PeakUK have shared this online. The question is will Riot publish Operation Zulu on line?

Reader’s Rides 2015 – Elliott Davidson

Name: Elliott Davidson (http://www.elliottdavidson.ie/)

Location: Nottingham

I am a canoe slalom athlete I paddle internationally for Ireland on the U23 & Senior team. I’m based in Nottingham, UK. I’m a full time athlete and train on the national white water course twice a day 6 days a week. I love anything kayaking related so when I’m not doing slalom I hit the river in my plastic boat. Although I prefer it when there’s a clock on it, but hey I might make it to Sickline eventually.

Sweet Protection Bushwhacker 2015

I am a huge fan of Sweet Protection and have tested the Bushwhacker MTB helmet to destruction! In this edit Tracy Moseley outlines the key features that she likes in the Bushwhacker. As this is the new 2015 version the adjustment system relies an Occigrip dial rather than the adjustment system seen previously. Will this be seen in future whitewater helmet line ups?

Astral Green Jacket Comparison


I have been using the Astral Green Jacket as my main PFD for well over a year now and I love it. The features and its low profile make it ideal for a range of water based activities.
