Building a shoe that can effortlessly cross from commuting duty to office duty is a difficult task. You have polar opposite interests competing for inclusion. On the one hand, you need the shoes to be stiff to transfer energy to the cranks. On the other, you want shoes that provide all-day comfort and look stylish in an office setting. At Engearment, we toss another wrench in there by using standing desks. So, not only do shoes have to be comfortable enough to wear all day - you have to be able to stand in them all day, too.

They call it the Flipcrown.
One of the reasons we like tubeless mountain bike tires at Engearment is the inherent flat-proofing that comes with it. With some liquid sealant inside, the tire will self-seal most thorns or cactus needle punctures. Road tubeless is coming along as well, but has some engineering issues that come with the much higher pressures and forces of road biking that manufacturers are still working to overcome. In the meantime, the Tannus Tire Aither 1.1 fills in a gap.
'Tis the season to have snow on the brain. But, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy other dalliances. Neil and Ian Provo are two of our favorite backcountry souls. They take phenomenal photographs and produce ... Read More...
