Redfox Wireless Products

July 15, 2015

At Giantnerd we love cycling and other outdoor sports, but we also have a passion for music.  Many of us believe sports and music go hand in hand, and that music can really help you push yourself to perform better as an athlete.  While at the Vail Mountain Games this year, our purchaser ran into the owner of Redfox Wireless, and we were very intrigued by their product selection.  We decided that we enjoy listening to music while we exercise and compete, so we figured most of you would as well.  

Shortly after the Vail Mountain Games, we decided to place an order and try some of the Redfox product line out.  Their flagship product is the Edge Bluetooth Wireless Headphone system, so we figured that would be a great place to start.  Having used lots of different Bluetooth headphones, our staff was a little skeptical, but we thought, "Hey, if it's good enough for Olympic athletes and was ranked as the Best Headphones by Runner's World Magazine, they may be worth a try".  Well, all I can say is we weren't disappointed, so much so that some of our staff members literally work with them on all day now.  These things are really awesome, you can even answer all of your phone calls at the touch of a button, and be easily heard with the built in speaker.  They have awesome sweat protection to, because they were actually designed by athletes for athletes, and you know, all athletes do sweat. 

     

After a great trial of the headphones, we decided to test some of their other products.  Next on the list was the Redfox Rover Bluetooth Speaker.  This speaker easily connects, via Bluetooth, to your phone or iPod and is extremely portable.  It even comes with a mount to attach it to your seatpost, so you can enjoy quality sound wherever you go.  The durable rubber coating and waterproof protection really puts this thing over the top, as no one likes a speaker they have to baby and never really get tot use.

We have been thrilled with how the new Redfox gear has been performing, and highly recommend it.  If you have been looking for a great Bluetooth system that is ready for all of your workouts, Redfox is the ticket.  Check our new selection of Redfox Products here, and find your perfect system today.

 

Adventure Cycling

July 01, 2015

This past weekend, Justin and myself decided to take our first swing at an adventure cycling trip.  So, we built up an Illimitate and a Avventura, ordered some racks and bags, and headed West.  It was simple to pick a route, and all you need to do is find a Forest Service Road made of dirt or gravel, and you are in business.  This was our first real test of the new Adventure Disc Bikes, as well as our first adventure cycling trip, so we didn't quite know what to expect.

Justin and I are experienced backpackers, so we had all the gear we needed and were very familiar with all the National Forest and Wilderness area regulations.  After ordering two Topeak Explorer 29er Tubular Racks, a Topeak MTX TrunkBag DXP,  a Topeak MTX TrunkBag EXP, an Axiom Journey DLX Lowrider, and an Axiom Monsoon Aero DLX 35 Panniers, we were all ready to go.  With the bikes packed up and looking adventure ready, we headed West on I-70 toward Silverthorne to US 9.  After a scenic drive, we hit Ute Pass Road, where we planned to enter National Forest space and start riding.  It was now time to park the car and see what these new Adventure Disc Bikes are all about!

 

 Full of energy and excitement, we hit the gravel began to climb.  It was shocking how easy it was to ride with this weight on the bikes, and all I could think was how much easier this was than backpacking.  With the sun beating down on us, we continued to climb through ...
