Howies Dyfi Active Shell jacket

My first impressions of the Dyfi Active Shell were focused on the colour and looks; understandable given that I nabbed it from Singletrack for photoshoot dressing-up. It’s a happy looking shell that works as well during everyday wear as it does in the hills. Unlike shells from some other technical clothing companies, the Dyfi is […]

Issue 83: Pivot Les

The Pivot Les (see what they nearly did there?) is partly here to show that a fixed blade fork can be plugged into any hardtail. Okay, the Les isn’t just any hardtail. It’s the first cross-country trail hardtail produced by Arizona suspension masters Pivot Cycles.
