I’m really stoked on this collaboration that United has going on with UK bluetooth speaker manufacturer, Minirig! I always have a bluetooth speaker with me at the trails, as I’m sure a lot of you also do. Minirig isn’t a manufacturer that I’d heard of before, but after looking over the specs, this little UK made speaker seems super dialed. 15 hours of battery life while on max volume is damn near magical! Give the promo video up above a watch and then check out the specs below for yourself, and if you fancy getting one of these speakers for…
United brought Thomas Hooper back to the spot where it all started for him, Sidley Woods for a riding session, and then sat him down at Two Snakes Tattoo to get a little insight into his process coming up with the graphic wrap he designed for the Prime Mover LTD frame. This dude’s work always amazes me and it’s really cool to see it embellished on a frame. As I’m sure you already know, LTD stands for limited, so hit up your local United dealer after you watch this if you want to lay claim to one.
United has always had a dialed range of soft goods and their new winter line is no different. They have some new long sleeves, thermals and hoodies to keep you warm and looking good, as well as a bunch of new t-shirts and hats to round out the line. Hit up your preferred United dealer or United’s web store to get a hold of them!
United and Bicycle Union’s collaboration frame, the Prime Mover is getting all fancied up with this limited edition wrapped version. BMX and tattoo legend Tom Hooper came up with the graphics for the wrap, and it also comes with one of those sweet Bicycle Union top tube pads and a separate sticker sheet so you can plaster it up just how you want. These things will be available soon with the rest of United’s new product drop! Peep the specs after the jump.
With the introduction of Kye Forte’s signature KF22 last month, I was wondering if the 20″ KL40 would still be a part of United’s line of completes. The release of United’s full 2017 complete range answered that question, and I’m happy that it’s yes. The KL40 is the perfect starter bike for someone looking to get into riding trails. While most completes these days are aimed at the streets, the KL40 is specced with a longer 21″ top tube, trails friendly geometry and United’s aggressive Indirect tyres. Even the two muted colorways it comes in are what you would expect…
Here it is, the promo for Kye Forte’s new signature KF22 complete from United! Kye seriously shreds this thing just as hard as he ever did a 20″. Hit play and check it out for yourself, and if you missed our interview with him about the whole KF22 project, you can get at it HERE.
The 22″ wheel, a lot of us had passed judgment before even seeing one, let alone riding one! I myself know that as soon as I heard of this new stead making a name for itself in our little sport, I had visions of 40 year old men having a midlife crisis riding around the woods on cruiser like machines doing hip hangers and turn bars, but after actually seeing one and riding one, I can personally vouch for their awesomeness. Below is a little Q&A I did with Kye Forte, the man behind United’s new 22″ K22 complete which…
This week’s flashback is a lead into our next post that just so happens to be an interview with none other than Kye Forte himself. Revisit his full throttle part from United’s “This is United” dvd and then check back in a little bit to learn more about Kye’s latest project!
As soon as I saw the graphics on that new United X Bicycle Union Prime Mover frame I thought to myself “that would be a rad shirt.” They apparently also thought so because sure enough they had some Prime Mover shirts printed up! You can pick one up where ever United goods are sold, including straight from their webstore.
Looks like I have another frame to add to the ol’ 2016 Trails Frame Buyers Guide! United and Bicycle Union have a history of collaborating together on some rad stuff, the latest being the new “Prime Mover” frame. Slim tubing, classic geometry, Skeletor on the graphics, and includes a Bicycle Union top tube pad; sounds like a winner to me!
