Words: Tom Johnson Photos: Danny Kern It’s midsummer here at High Cascade at the Palmer Snowfield has been action packed! The HCSC Private Parks have migrated North and campers are slashing slush, pressing boxes, spinning jumps, and then hopping right back on the Palmer lift to do it again!

WEND Bike Introduces First Colored Chain Lubricant in the WORLD!

Makers of the first ever "rub-on" chain wax bring six Day-Glo® shades to market.

SPECTRUM header SM

VISTA, Calif. – WEND Bike—makers of the first-ever “rub-on" wax-based lubricant—excitedly introduces the first-ever colored chain lubricant in the world to the cycling market. Utilizing a sophisticated paraffin based formula that includes proprietary friction reducers as well as proven lubricants including Zinc and Teflon™, WEND’s Spectrum collection reveals the bright side of performance and inspires individuality through a collection of colors like cycling’s never seen before.

“Our mission at WEND is to follow suit with the legacy of Wax Research—which means we’re all about creating unconventional formulas that work along with bringing products to market that no one has ever created before,” says company co-founder Ryan Dahl. “This collection isn’t just big for us at WEND, it’s exciting for the entire cycling community and we’re happy to introduce something unique and fun that works even better than it looks.”

Adding fluorescent flair to its existing product lineup, WEND Spectrum is available in six beaming Day-Glo® shades—Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red and Pink.

“I have been hooked on WEND ever since it helped me smash the Belgian Waffle Ride in conditions that would normally leave your chain loud and junky feeling—and now I get to do it with a pink chain!” says gravel slayer Larissa Connors. “Cycling is meant to be as fun as possible, and colored lubricant makes riding bikes even more fun than it was before.”

Introduced in 2015, WEND Bike’s proven lubricants work together to create a chain wax that promotes a quiet, clean, and efficient drivetrain. Extending the benefits of a waxed chain to riders without the hassle of traditional waxing methods, all WEND bike “rub-on” products are applied manually and worked into the links resulting in a ride that’s smooth, quiet and resistant to the elements within minutes of application. In addition to its line of “rub-on” products, WEND also offers factory waxed chains and hot wax kits for the highest quality wax jobs at home.

Our friends over at Team Valoche are at it again!  With another hilarious edit from their cross-country ski team, we can't wait to get back into winter!

Snowboarder Magazine's The Launch 2016 presented by Volcom at Bear Mountain

SNOWBOARDER MAGAZINE'S THE LAUNCH 2016 PRESENTED BY VOLCOM AT BEAR MOUNTAIN

TheLaunch2016_Day1RecapGallery

We are stoked to gain our annual springtime shred stoke from the godly amount of photos Snowboarder Magazine supplies us through their online galleries during The Launch.  This year The Launch was brought back down to Bear Mountain just in time for a spring break filled with grey skies and incredibly strange winds - a day differing from Bear Mountain's daily standard of year round t-shirt laps.  Regardless - spins were spun, flips were flipped, and rails were ridden.

--

Head over to SNOWBOARDERMAG for the gallery and recap of Day 1!  Keep a lookout for snaps of WEND team riders Valentino Guseli and Edward Enyart in the Day 1 gallery!  More to come from WEND team riders Red Gerard, Toby Miller, Seamus O'Connor, and Ryan Wachendorfer later this week!

 

 

Stay tuned for more to come this week . . .
