  • Blackline: New Bamhill adventure video from Madeira

    While we were looking for a place to start the bike season, we found something interesting in the Atlantic Ocean. Madeira is more than just an island, and destination for tourists, which are transported from sight to sight. The Portuguese flower island, with an area of approximately 750km² is not large, but it has everything to offer a mountain bikers heart is looking for.

    Bamhill_MadeiraBamhill_Madeira_downhill

    From desert-like and free burned landscapes over rocky, rooty and flowy trails to very narrow, jungle-like single trails everybody finds his favorite. Via Shuttle you can enjoy the Trail-diversity of the island very well. Above Jardim do Mar you find the Redline, the Blackline and the Fox Trail – build by Bikulture.

    In the northern part of the island, above the capital Funchal, is a downhill slope, and many more single trails or even steep Vertride’s. To the west of Madeira, the trails are getting narrow like a jungle. Furthermore, the North-West has some beautiful viewpoints and natural wonders to offer. Who is not yet convinced, has the opportunity to attend at one of the many Enduro or
    Downhill race.

  • News from Bamhill: Bat Boys – Awakening in Finale Ligure

    Party Hard – Ride Even Harder
    After a boozy night out, the two Bat Boys Bernd & Bam awake on the abandoned NATO base above Finale Ligure. Like bats, they have spent the night upside down. Now it’s time to shake the blood back from the head to the feet and groove back down to civilization.

A long time ago the Romans were busy in buildung numerous paths through the forests sorrounding Finale Ligure. Probably they never thougt, that their work will last so many generations. Old Paths’ transformed into flowy single trails. The companies, which have to do with the bike business, had to merge togetherinto one union, in order to maintain the big trail network. The style of the trails range from soft forest terrain to rocky, almost blocked paths and of course everything in between.[Official Website: Finale Ligure]

  • NEU: Sudpin IV S-Pro

    Sudpin_IV_Gruppe_01

    04/2015 – Es ist soweit!! Wir freuen uns die neue Sudpin IV S-Pro Flat Pedal in den Händen zu halten. Von unseren Pro Team Ridern auf Herz und Niren gestestet, möchten wir euch unser neues “FAIL SAFE” Feature vorstellen.
    Was ist das neue FAIL SAFE System?

    Ein weiterer innovativer Sicherheits- und Qualitätsaspekt aus dem Hause NC-17, denn Sicherheit geht vor!
    Das neue NC-17 Sudpin IV S-Pro Flat Pedal ist die nächste Evolutionsstufe unseres Klassikers und Bestellers Sudpin III S-Pro. Neben der Verdopplung der Tragzahlen stellen wir mit diesem Pedal erstmalig unser neues „FAIL SAFE“ System vor.
    Die Ansprüche an das Material haben sich nicht zuletzt durch immer härtere Bedingungen im MTB Wettkampfsport wie zum Beispiel beim „RedBull Rampage“, an dem unserer Teamfahrer alljährlich teilnehmen, deutlich erhöht. Das „NC-17 FAIL SAFE“ verhindert das selbst bei extremster Beanspruchung im Falle einer Fehlfunktion der Pedalkörper sich von der Achse trennen kann. Auch wenn es unwahrscheinlich ist das unser „FAIL SAFE“ zum Einsatz kommt ist es doch gut zu wissen, dass es da ist.

    Mehr Sicherheit bei gleichbleibendem Gewicht.
    Durch die Überarbeitung des Pedalkörpers konnten wir den Verbau und das zusätzliche Gewicht des „FAIL SAFE“ System ausgleichen. Somit bleibt das Sudpin IV wie auch schon der Vorgänger Sudpin III mit nur 364g eines der leichtesten in dieser Pedal Kategorie

    Die Sudpin IV S-Pro gibt es in den Farben: schwarz, weiß, silber, rot, blau, grün, gold für 98,95 € ab 15.05.2015 in unserem Online-Shop.
