Specialized always has so much stuff on its booth that it’s hard to know where to start. …so we’ll start in the middle… That Robert Egger (Specialized’s creative director) has a lot to answer for. Not only is he behind a lot of the unified look and feel of the brand, he helps develop the […]
Sticky shoe maker Five Ten has gone utterly bonkers this year. Instead of a couple of new models, they’ve been a flood of flat and SPD shoes for every conceivable niche. Here’s a quick peek at what’s new for 2012: Danny MacAskill has a signature shoe! Five Ten have worked with the Scottish trials wünderkind to […]
Chipps made a bet four years ago. Today it was time to reckon up and see if he’d won. It was also the final day of the show. Premier Subscriptions can be bought for £30/year (including the printed mag) – £15/year for digital only or just £2/month if you want to try it out.

Day Two of the Dirt Demo – so far we started with torrential rain today and it’s stayed grey and (actually) chilly all day. However, we still have shot from yesterday’s sunshine to post. There are many bits and piece that don’t fall into regular categories, so we’ll be posting random selections of them as […]
Yep, you heard that Race Face went all a bit wrong for a while earlier this year… well, it’s back and it’s got some new backers and bosses and is cranking out new kit as if nothing happened… A table full of goodies… The Atlas freeride components have been given a tickle, with a new, […]
A brief introduction for our Premier users to what Interbike is about and some choice words from Surly (by which we mean some sweary stuff – so be warned! Keep the volume down if you are at work briefly – we’ve stuck a warning in the video 🙂
Roll up Premier users, here’s a sneaky peek into what’s going to be showing up in stories over the next day or two. The idea is that when we get back from the show, we always download and resize photos, then spend hours writing the stories that you see of the following few days. Here […]
A couple of smaller companies at the more rugged end of things.
