Latest News About DZR and Biking In General
SAN FRANCISCO (BRAIN) — DZR has introduced two new limited edition shoes: The Reflective and The Valencia. The DZR clipless cycling shoes have variable flex shank technology, a sturdy heel stabilizer and recessed SPD cleat design that transitions from walking to riding.
The bike share programs can be considered a stable and integrated phenomenon of mobility in the cities. The idea of bike sharing was born in Amsterdam, in 1965 and it evolved until 1998 when the first city-scale bike share program was launched in Rennes, France.
Since then, the system spread throughout the world and today, almost all major cities propose a similar solution. Wondering which are the best bike share programs in the world? Find it out in our top 25.
Most cycling shoes are pretty sharp, but they’re also decidedly sporty. As cycling becomes an increasingly popular mode of transportation, shoe manufacturers are offering up more products that pedal well, walk comfortably, and look great.
Outdoor and athletic brands have it out for transition. Right now, the bulk of the innovation happening in the space is aimed at eliminating those times between activities and the rest of life, and despite expansive product lines, companies big and small are producing ultra-versatile jackets and t-shirts that can be worn forever (or so we’re meant to think). By now, you’ve heard all the tag lines: city-to-mountain, backcountry-to-bar — the list goes on. Most of these items are the result of improvements in garment technology and are more like iterations on products seen before. Others are the result of true innovations in design and thinking.
Here's a video from our rider Tyler McCaul. He's testing and working with us for a T-max shoe. We'll be soft launching it in 2018.
You can see the stealthy version of the shoes in the video. Awesome rider, cause testing prototypes is no simple job, shoes are always exploding at the seams, but he always has clear and useful feedback. - Read More On Pink Bike
Simon Silver takes us for a ride Down Puerto Vallarta urban race course. A combination of dirt, stairs, natural and man made, this track looked to be a favorite among the urban races with a finish line in sight of the ocean.
At some point in your bike-riding life, you’ll be climbing a steep hill, or hopping over a pothole, or hitting the road with a faster crew, thinking to yourself, “What is it I’m doing wrong? Why can’t I keep up?”
85% of it is your legs. Ride more, push harder, challenge yourself. You’ll get faster, more skillful. For that last 15% though, your equipment has to be up to snuff. And 10% of that equipment is going to be your pedals. Are they clipless? If not, that right there is going to be the extra ‘umph’ you need to beast over that hill, hop over that obstacle, and keep up with your friends and rivals. If you don’t believe me, try it! My hand to god, if you get back and tell me I’m wrong, I’ll eat my shoes.
“But Maaarrrk, I want to just ride my bike around and not have to wear those silly shoes that I see all the srs bikers clicking and clacking around in all damn day!” Well, duh, you’re on the DZR blog! That’s what these shoes do best! I work on my feet in these sumbitches all day long, and forget I’m even wearing bike shoes until I hop on and ride.
When it comes to clipless pedals, there are a slew of choices; enough to make your head spin if you don’t know exactly what you want. That’s why DZR has tasked me with breaking down the three most common pedals you’ll encounter:...
ArtistCarla Bartow is well known for her woodcut-style illustrations that have been the basis for bike culture posters like the Tweed Ride. Fitting with her artistic style, Carla takes a casual approach to her cycling apparel. But when she started a new job that required a long seven mile commute across town, she began to re-asses her apparel and opted for cleated shoes.
