Skate shoe giant DVS has a reputation for mixing things up. They make waterproof shoes for kicking it aprés snow activity, they have a specific fixie brand of shoes (cadence), they even made shoes for wake skating once upon a time and now they’re producing a post-moto line of shoes that can pull double duty on the soles of MTB and BMX riders and you can get em in the Spoke shop now. There’s four shoes in the line, one of them is pretty damn ugly so I’ve saved your eyes and opted not to show it to you but the remaining three should find a place in most wardrobes. All the shoes in the DVS Dirt Collection are machine (and water blaster) washable and come with a wash bag. To aid in the drying they feature removable tongues which allow you to quickly wash, wring out and dry. The tongue pocket allows for easy installation and removal. They also feature an incredibly quick drying foam, the porous nature of the foam allows water and air to flow freely through it which makes the drying process a “snap”. Add to this the inner lining and footbed are made from an anti-microbial material which helps prevent the growth of bacteria and other organisms. It’s worth noting that DVS in New Zealand have already put their money where their shoes are and hooked up BMX (well anything on two wheels) superstar Paul Langlands.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
