The Great Singletrack Christmas Giveaway – What’s Coming This Week?

by 1

We’ve already given away two prizes this week, but never fear, we have plenty more great prizes to be won.

Yes! PRIZES to be WON by YOU!

It’s very easy to enter – just watch our daily Facebook Live Videos and follow the instructions. But first let’s see what you could be winning this week…

Monday: Maxxis Assegai Tyres

Like a smooth Christmas ‘Best of’ album of tyres.

Designed in conjunction with Greg Minnaar and named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa, this is the newest tyre in the Maxxis range. It’s designed to work well in all sorts of conditions: The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. It brings many of the great bits of several Maxxis tyres into a single collection of rubbery goodness. The tyres will come in 2.50Wide Tread format and for both 27.5 and 29in flavours.

Tuesday: Mudhugger FRX Mudguards

Big and shiny enough to keep you, well, clean and shiny too.

The FRX (Front Race) was designed with the help of World Cup and Enduro World Series riders during 2014. Weighing in at only 80g but measuring 450mm in length the FRX provides awesome mud/spray stopping performance without breaking the bank. With various holes for fitting to different fork braces, the FRX Hugger is suitable for all wheel sizes, 26er, 650B and 29er wheel. It also works on Plus wheels with tyres up to 3 inches wide in a ‘Boost’ fork. For the ultimate protection on your bike add a front Hugger MAX extension (£7.50) to make your bike no home for the mud.

Wednesday: Syncros Tofino Saddle and accessories!

ALL of the accessories!

The top endurance orientated saddle from Syncros. It features carbon rails and a low 170g weight. The V-concept version of the Tofino saddle was developed for riders who tend to sit on the middle to front part of the saddle. These riders tend to be more flexible in the lumbar spine and pelvis and, in general, have a more aggressive riding position with a low rise stem and high seatpost. The cut-out version transfers weight to the bones on either side of the pelvis as opposed to the middle. The Tofino was developed in conjunction with world-renowned bike fit company Gebiomized, this saddle (and its sister the Savona) has been designed to offer the maximum tailored bike fit solution for an off the peg saddle. Cleverly, the saddle is also compatible with a load of nifty integrated accessories, like a saddlebag, GoPro mount or rear fender.

Thursday: Hope Carbon Handlebars

780 of the millimetres…
That’s pure northern fibre for you there, lad/lass…

100% designed, tested and manufactured in Barnoldswick UK by the folks at Hope. Having resisted the lure of getting someone in the Far East to make its bars, Hope knuckled down and created a whole carbon manufacturing and research division in Barnoldswick.
Having been tested for years under some heavy duty riders, the bars are now available. Recommended for Trail and all-mountain use, they come in a 780mm width, with a 20mm rise (and 5up, 7back geometry). Weight is 225g.
And did we mention that they’re made in Lancashire? And you can win them!

Friday: Fibrax Rotors, Finned Pads and cool stuff.

All this – and more. Mugs and stuff not pictured…

Fibrax has quietly been making cool stuff in the UK for the last, well, century or so. And it continues to keep up to date with the latest developments in bike technology. In this giveaway, the winner will get a bike’s worth of Fibrax brake rotors and finned brake pads – to suit their own bike. And that’s in addition to all sorts of cool cable sets, a Fibrax mug and other exclusive goodies.

Saturday: 661 Reset Helmet

Matador Red is our new favourite colour.

The 661 Reset helmet is a very affordable full-face helmet from this well-known protection company. We’ve had one in to review this year and our Andi really liked it. If you’re put off the price of the top-end helmets, this is a great alternative if you’re not a habitual full-face user. For riders that mostly run a trail helmet, but who need an occasional full facer for a week in the mountains, or that trip to Antur Stiniog, then the Reset is a no-brainer. And for riders on a budget, the Reset still offers a ton of safety and adjustability, while still

How do you win?

Each week day (and a few Saturdays too) at around lunchtime, we’ll be coming to you via Facebook Live where we’ll have a close look at that day’s prize to tell you a bit more about it, and reveal the question you’ll need to answer in order to enter the competition. Don’t worry, it will be a nice easy question. Want to be notified when we’re live so you can enter the draw straight away? Then get onto our Facebook Page ASAP!

Too busy at work to tune in for Facebook Live? Don’t worry, each day we’ll be embedding the video into a story, along with all the competition details, on our website so that you have chance to enter the competition until 9am UK time the following day.

The competition will be free to enter, but you do need a Username to do so, which is good, because not only is it free to register, it’s so simple a heavily intoxicated Santa impersonator could do it. So take 15 seconds to get yourself signed up and registered. Every day we’ll give you the chance to win the product we feature that day. Better yet, we’ll also put your name into the prize draw for the Mega Box Of Joy – which will contain one of everything that we give away in the whole lead up to Christmas. That’s going to be one huge box!

As a bonus prize, whoever wins the Mega Box Of Joy will be invited to join us here to our office for a day of coffee, riding, coffee, tea, fish and chips, and maybe even a cheeky beer, as well as collecting your winnings. Because the Mega Box Of Joy is going to be such a monster, entries will only be available to those with a UK delivery address, or to anyone who is prepared to come along to Singletrack Towers and visit us for the day and collect it.

Don’t forget to check in every week day to enter the daily draw, and remember, every time you enter you’re increasing your chances of winning the Mega Box Of Joy – enter every draw and you’ll have 20 chances of winning the big box. Whoop!


Singletrack Editor

Chipps wasn’t around for the dawn of mountain biking in the UK, but he likes to claim that he arrived in time for second breakfast (about the time he shows up for work, then…) starting in the bike trade in 1990 and becoming a full time mountain bike journalist at the start of 1994. Over the subsequent quarter century, he has seen mountain bike culture flourish and diversify and bike technology go from rigid steel frames to fully suspended carbon fibre (and sometimes back to rigid steel as well.)

His riding style is best described as ‘medium, wheels on the ground, trail riding’ though he’s been spotted doing everything from endurance downhill racing to 24 hour cross country racing. He favours mid-travel trail bikes and claims to be wheel-size, gear, brake and tyre agnostic. In fact, his garage spans most bicycle flavours, taking in steel hardtails, carbon trail bikes, even a mountain bike tandem, along with road, touring and gravel/cyclocross bikes.

While he’s happy to chat about bikes all day, his real interest is in the people and places that bikes can introduce you to and he talks as fondly about the trails he’s ridden and riders he’s met as the bikes that took him there.
