I've been using VE paddles for around 3 years now and other competitors such as Werner, Select, Lettmann or AT seem inferior. I think VE have nailed the weight to surface area of the blades which allow you to transfer so much power into each stroke, making these paddles perfect for all disciplines of whitewater kayaking. I've never had any issues with durability either and would easily trust VE in any grade of whitewater. One of my favourite things about VE paddles is the fact that they are custom built to any feather, length or hand you could wish for(there's even a chart to tell you which size would be best for you depending on your height and discipline of paddling!) Also, there is an option to convert the paddles into either 2 or 4 way splits if need be. This is great if you're trying to space save for trips abroad or just as an emergency pair! Combinations of Carbon blades/shaft or Glass blades/shaft are available if you don't want to splash out on full carbon blades or want something a bit more durable.
The award winning Apostle is the only ski I need in my quiver. Rocky Mountain Underground manufactures burly skis for aggressive riders. The UHMW sidewalls are over twice as thick as the industry standard, making the ski resilient to lateral impact and edge blow out. World Cup sintered bases are 2.2 mm deep, making core shots less likely and giving you many more base grinds over the years. The edges themselves are thicker and stronger, so you would have to take a serious hit to ruin this ski in a single impact. And when it comes to performance, the Apostle is versatile enough to handle any conditions you may throw at them.
Having spent Many Many hours of my life doing water sports i have always found it uncomfortable when you get water trapped in your shoes not with these bad boys. they are low profile, grippy and the water just flows out once you step out the water. great shoes and they don't look half bad either.
Like with all Salomon S-Lab kit, this pack is super light weight and very durable. Its exactly what you need when climbing mountains or hills over long distances.
It has multiple options for storing essentials like gels, mobile phone, jacket, poles, nutrition and two elasticated water bottle pockets at the front. And it looks great. Love it!
Definitely my tent to go for mountaineering. Very lightweight as well as compact; this tent is very stronger and well designed for very bad conditions. I tried a lot of tents but this one is definitely my favorite. The ventilation system is so amazing.
I love using Colnago bikes for their durability, design, strength, they are lightweight yet strong enough to take the force of professional racing, sprinting for the finish line or climbing a steep incline. They are brilliant for every form of racing as well. I have had several Colnagos and they have never let me down. The Clx 2.0 is a sloping frame in the mid range of frames, affordable for anyone looking to own a Colnago. Don't think they are to expensive and for the pros only.... they're not. Highly recommended!! I have always used Campagnolo group sets and wheels and once again, although at the higher end of the market, still affordable, reliable, strong, light and well worth the investment. Own a Colnago today, you will not be disappointed!!
