MTB Weekly
Hey there!
this week I take a look at the all new AXS wireless system from SRAM, which strikes a nice balance between technology and being out of the way to let you enjoy the ride. I also look at the journey of top female athletes and how they are opening the sport up for more women. We also travel to New Zealand and check out some tips to take your significant other riding with you.
As always, if you like MTBW, hit the FWD button in your mailbox and send it to someone who might enjoy it as well!
Happy reading 🤙

🎽 Making Mountain Biking a Sport for Everyone
It’s great to see more and more women joining the world of mountain biking. This interest is in part fueled by female athletes that have paved the way and shown others that this sport is truly for everyone.
This short film talks to Kialani Hines, Vaea Verbeeck, Miranda Miller, Micayla Gatto and more about what motivates them in the world of competitive mountain biking. It’s also a homage to how awesome Whistler and British Columbia are!
🗺 Guaranteed Adventure: New Zealand, One Van, Four Bikes and No Plan
They say adventure starts when things go wrong. And if that’s the case, buying a heavily used van in New Zealand is a guaranteed adventure!
You don’t need to plan way in advance, you don’t need to go to a remote place, you don’t need clear objectives. Four members of the Freehub Mag crew explored the South Island of New Zealand and realized they are on an adventure. So go take your friends, pack a van, or whatever and set out on an adventure of your own.

🤖 SRAM introduces its fully wireless system
How much tech should be on a bikes? This is a pretty heated topic. And now, there’s more reason than ever to get heated. SRAM just announced its fully wireless system that includes a dropper post and rear derailleur. I actually think that pushing the tech in bikes is a good thing - after all this is what mountain biking has always done. The trick is for the tech to get out of the way and complement the ride, not define it. I think SRAM has got something really good here and I can’t wait to try it out.
