Kenda Gran Mudda Pro Tire

Early versions of Kenda's Gran Mudda first showed up at Eurobike back in 2019, but it's now in full production and available in 29 x 2.4" or 27.5 x 2.4" options. As the name suggests, it's a mud spike, with tall, square knobs that are designed to dig into loose ground. Each knob has a cut mark on it that helps make it easier to trim them for use in drier conditions when the full height spikes would be overkill.

The Gran Mudda uses Kenda's Advanced Gravity Casing (AGC), which uses a woven aramid material for puncture protection at the top and sides of the tire. The tires use a dual compound design, with a softer rubber on the outside of the knobs over a firmer rubber that provides support.

Weight: 1150 grams for the 27.5" version, and 1250 grams for the 29" option. MSRP: $84.95 USD. More info: kendatire.com

Rite in the Rain Waterproof Notebooks & All-Weather Pen

In today's digital world there's something extra-satisfying about writing things down using a pen and paper. I usually use my phone for taking notes about test bike and products, but since these items showed up I've been enjoying taking the analog route more and more.

Rite in the Rain has been in business since 1916, when they got their start making waterproof notebooks for the timber industry. They're still at over a hundred years later, with a product lineup that includes all sorts of weatherproof writing solutions. Pens, mechanical pencils, notebooks, printer paper, and more are all made in the United States and ready for whatever Mother Nature decides to dish out. The All-Weather Pocket Pen ($12.95 for a 2-pack) is half the size of a regular pen when it's not in use, and the pressurized ink cartridge allows it to work in temperatures from -30F to 250F, and up to 35 feet underwater.

Orange Seal Sealant & VersaValve

Orange Seal now has three different sealant formulas - Regular, Endurance, and Subzero. They've put together a handy infographic to help sort out the differences, but essentially, for the best sealing properties the Regular formula is the way to go, and for the longest lasting sealant Endurance and Subzero are the picks. And if you're planning on an Arctic expedition, that Subzero formula is designed to keep working down to -20F.

The VersaValve tubeless valve stems are available in 32, 48, 60, and 80mm lengths, and each kit comes with two valves, four valve cores, two conical and two rectangular grommets to accommodate different rim profiles, and six different lock nut colors. MSRP: From $23.95 USD.

Ergon SMC Core Saddle

The SMC is aimed at riders who place comfort high on their priority list, whether that's due to back issues, a lack of rear suspension, or simply a preference for a softer, wider saddle over one that's narrower and more race-oriented.

The SMC uses Ergon's 'Core' construction, which has two different shells with different densities of foam between each layer. It's almost like stacking one saddle on top of another, and the idea is that the upper portion will move with your body during pedaling, which helps reduce the amount of sit bone pressure and the overall amount of friction.

There are two different width's, S/M and M/L, and both use chromoly rails. It's not the lightest option at 352 grams for the M/L, but remember, comfort was the overarching goal with this saddle. Interestingly, there's a 220 lb recommended rider weight limit, something to consider depending on how many quarantine pounds you’ve put on.

Smith Shift Mag Sunglasses

Smith's new Shift Mag sunglasses are available in four different frame colors, with four different lens options to choose from, including a photochromic lens that's change from clear to grey depending on the amount of light. The Shifts have a medium fit, large coverage design, a two position nose piece, and grippy Megol rubber on the temples to keep them securely in place.

Along with the one tinted lens, all of the versions come with a second clear lens that can be swapped in and out in a matter of second thanks to Smith's Mag technology. A press on the side of the glasses opens a magnetic latch, and the lens can be switched to match the day's conditions.

MSRP: $259 USD. smithoptics.com

Syncros iS Accessory Mount

A few months ago I wrote a short article bemoaning the lack of affordable tube holders that could be used on the two bolts that many bikes now have underneath their top tubes. It turns out that Syncros had just what I was looking for, a $13 accessory mount that can either be attached underneath a water bottle cage, positioning the tube below the bottom of the bottle, or underneath the top tube once the front portion is cut off. It's simple, effective, and does exactly what it's supposed to.

 I really like my Smith goggles (best I've had), but man their stuff is getting crazy expensive. How are those glasses worth more than my goggles, which came with two lenses and have big elaborate frames with magnets & everything? I'd love some smith lenses for biking, but they need to be like 2000 times better than my $4.50 clear protective glasses.

 @ilovedust: I didn't even think of this.

Glad I'm not alone in my wonder. Goggles seems so much more significant. Also, MTB glasses get scratched and crushed etc more than goggles so I'm far more reluctant to spend proportionaltely more on MTB eyewear. Seriously, my worker protective glasses were $4.50 CAD, making it really hard to rationalize these. Heck, I don't even wear glasses half the ride (up) haha
  • 5 1
 @WasatchEnduro: I have the Tifosi sledge glasses and they’ve been great. Unlike the pair of Smith Attack Mags I had before them. The lenses were great but the attachment to the mag system was flimsy and broke. At $250 as opposed to $60 I’ll just get 4 pairs of tifosis before I spend that again

 I was looking at the Smiths too thinking they looked decent, not too wild or douchy, clear lenses, easy to change lenses apparently. Then boom! How much?! Ha ha!! It’s not the 90’s anymore, where optically correct lenses are hard to come by and require ultra exclusive manufacturing equipment. These should be $100 for what they are. That would still pay everyone along the line fairly and then some. Anyways, I’ll shut up and just won’t buy them I guess.

 @Molesdigmyjumps:

For sure I agree the lens (and frame) quality goes up with brands like Smith and Oakley. I like their products. But I tend to scratch my lenses whilst riding my off road two wheeled contraption so it's a big investment to pay for lenses that are inevitably scratched up a year later. And I haven't crashed yet due to the optics of lesser brands.

 I have multiple helmet’s from this brand as well as some optics, they have superb quality and never was disappointed wit that.

 Tifosi are great for the price and so much more worth it than crappy hardware store protective glasses. I can't believe how many people rave about those 5$ Home Depot specials for riding... They distort my vision to the point of feeling sick. 40$ for nice quality lenses from Tifosi is not a lot considering how much better they are.
  • 2 0
 @BamaBiscuits: I have had a similar experience with attack max and attack mtb from Smith. The part of the lens that attaches to the temple hinges break. Relatedly, the magnets rust if [when] you get them wet. I warrantied a pair without issues after it happened to my first two lenses. After that, I've just been gorilla gluing them back together. I've done this 4 or 5 times now (since all the originals will eventually fail) and I've never had a second issue with one that I've glued, knock on wood. The fit, feel, vision quality of these glasses are great. Too bad they aren't durable, and no way to justify paying retail even without these issues.
  • 2 0
 @Jordansemailaddress: good points though. I used to associate Smith with lower-priced but still competent gear, but now I guess they need to play in the price range of the Oakleys of the world. I can't really see any technology that is included in these glasses that wasn't also available 20 years ago and with more molding and manufacturing options the prices should be the same...300% inflation? nah

 I bought some $40 polychromatic rock bros riding glasses on amazon. I can confirm they are indeed polychromatic and change color as they should. I don't understand the huge cost, nor would I be willing to fork out $260 for some glasses that in all likelihood i will loose or scratch the shit out of.

 Chromapop really is legit. I have used my wife's bender glasses and they aren't on par with my Smith's at all. Same goes for my ski goggles. I don't ride somewhere that you get a ton of lens scratches, so I imagine I will be able to get a decade out of my Smith's. Plus, I can just swap out the lenses and keep the frames if I ever need to.

IDK, for me it is worth it. Could I ride with cheaper glasses? Yeah. But the Smith Wildcats are really good enough that I can justify the price.

 Smith, and just about all other sunglasses companies, are owned by two large multinational companies. They all share technology and stuff between them so they're all pretty good glasses, but mostly they're priced the way they are because, well, f*** you. That's why. See those other ones on the shelf next to them? Also owned by Luxottica, also cost $11 to manufacture overseas, and also have the same 2000% markup. If you don't like the pricing on the Smiths then buy them instead.

There are very few sunglasses manufacturers that are independent and sell for a reasonable cost. Tifosi is one. The problem is that since Luxottica and Safilo basically own all sunglass companies, they also own all patents, so it's really hard for a new company to come in and target a similar technology without getting sued. For that reason I specifically refuse to buy Luxottica/Safilo glasses and only support small, honestly-priced sunglass manufacturers.
  • 1 0
 @ungod: Safilo is 10 times smaller than Luxottica. I am not saying you are wrong about pricing, but Safilo does much less shady crap than Luxottica. I wish that Smith was still owned by the Smith family though. My wife is from Sun Valley and her family knows them. Regardless, I still really like my Smith products and will continue to purchase from them.

 Checking the Orange Seal infographic, I was wondering if Pinkbike has taken a poll of how often people refresh sealant?

The 30-45 day lifespan for the regular sealant is certainly a good marketing move if some consumers follow it.

A study of how long different sealants actually remain viable would be interesting as well...

 I only add it if the tyre doesn't hold air for some reason. Otherwise I don't care since I never rely on the sealant for tears or punctures.

 Usually 6-9weeks for myself. Just keep refilling the sealant until the tires dead on tread

 Is it seriously 30-45 days??? I just checked all my bikes after winter storage and 3 out of 4 didn't even need a top up. I use the Endurance formula, FWIW, but it seems to be lasting at least a year in variable New England conditions.

 Too many variables. Some tires have more permeable sidewalls than others. Tire pressure and ambient temperature surely have their own effects. And then the amount you ride, and the number of punctures that the tires have to seal up, will also affect how long it lasts. Lastly, the sealant seems to gradually form a latex film on the inside of the tire that decreases the tire permeability, so the more times you've topped a tire up, the slower it dries out. As for myself, I usually use a thin zip tie as a dipstick thru the valve every 3 months, and top it up if it's dry or nearly so.

 I never understood why cutting tire knobs is a thing.
What kind of person goes to town on their mud tire they spent like £60 on with a pair of pliers to dedicate half an hour to irreversibly change it into a different tire that they could have just bought instead/in addition?
And if there is no such intermediate tire, then why does a brand not just manufacture one and sell that?
  • 4 0
 I get the confusion. Cutting knobs isn't very common, but can be useful for dialing in a tire for the course. Mud (spikes) tires are really the only ones that do it, and they are very niche. Most people I agree don't want/need a mud-specific tire, and if they do, it is more than likely the need for a cut-spike (the cut version of a mud spike). Brands do manufacture and sell specific cut-spikes (aka the Shorty), but it too, is a small niche market. Hitting both niche markets with one tire has been the norm for most manufacturers for years. I hope that helps!

 FWIW I've never had a flat on my fatbike, tubeless with stans, with hundreds of miles far below -20. Part of that is the snowy trails are very gentle on tires (my 7 year old Husker Du's are in fabulous condition) and my rims (fatback carbon footprint) have a very tight bead. I've spun many miles at 2.5-3 psi and never burped.

 In coming butthurt comments about glasses prices and how their $5 safety glasses from Home Depot are just as good. We get it, glasses are expensive. No, your safety glasses do not have the same performance as top end glasses. Also, no you dont have to purchase these and there are 1000 other companies with prices all across the spectrum that you can peruse to your hearts desire.
  • 4 2
 But top end glasses have performance on par with $70 glasses.

I said 'on par' not 'equal' so the 3x+ cost over comparable glasses is just up to the rider whether it's worth that much more to them.

My glasses and goggles are used hard and get scratched regularly so it's hard to see what 3x+ more is buying.
