We’re proud to announce that for the 2018 Red Hook Crit season Knog will be officially supporting local Melbourne weapons, Hunter Bros Cycling.

This is the first time we’ve had the opportunity to back an all-out-Aussie team for the Red Hook Crit series and we’re pretty pumped up about it.

For those of you familiar with the local Melbourne race scene, you’ll probably be aware of Hal and Ray Hunter – two thirds of Hunter Bros Cycling. They’re a tough, hardworking team - probably the most dedicated riders we know.

Why Hunter Bros Cycling? Like Knog, they’re cyclists but also creatives. They stand out, rather than fit in. They crave the buzz of the city, but pine for going off-road into the bush. Our products complement these passions and their love for the outdoors.

We’ll be following Hunter Bros Cycling throughout the 2018 season as they push themselves to the absolute limits training and competing in the Red Hook crit series. Their ultimate goal: a podium. 

We’ll keep you in the loop, regularly posting updates on HB’s progress, their gruelling training sessions, interviews with the riders, Instagram takeovers, and a possible product collab or two. It all leads up to that very first race in Brooklyn. 

Stay tuned.

PWR wins Design & Innovation Award

30 January 2018 12:22:00 pm AEDT

knog pwr mod light system

 

WINNER OF THE DESIGN & INNOVATION AWARD 2018

Not your average bike light, the PWR Modular Light from Australian brand Knog is a clever bit of kit that shows how far flexibility can take nighttime illumination. At the heart of the design is a battery (available in five different capacities) that also serves a charging port for your smartphone and the like via its USB port. Once you’ve chosen the battery, four different light heads are available with outputs up to 1,800 lumen and with six mounts for helmets and bars – the PWR Modular Light system can comfortably be set up to meet any circumstances. An app will soon be launched that controls the brightness and therefore allows you to optimise running time depending on your specific needs. Regardless of which set you begin with, the Knog PWR system is a high-quality light system that will keep step with developments going into the future. And, compared to the current options, it’s simply unparalleled in terms of its flexibility

Tuscany Road Ride by Carlo Bonetti

23 November 2017 1:00:24 pm AEDT

Tuscany Road had long been marked on the calendar as a bench test for my first true long distance ride in solitude and self-sufficiency. The goal was to complete the 600km of the first edition of TR, brother of the most famous Tuscany Trail, within 40 hours, the Audax limit time for this type of randonnée brevets.

Personal choice, as the event has no maximum time and the only rule is to follow the GPS track provided. Gait, break and any overnight stays are at your own discretion, so total freedom to interpret your challenge. Since I'm going to spend the night in the saddle, I got Knog's PWR lights up to keep my ride safe.

Departure scheduled for 8:00 on Saturday 23rd September 2017 from the magnificent Piazza degli Aranci in Massa.

20/600 km - Vestito Pass is the first passage of the Apuan Alps at 1,100mt to be overcome immediately after leaving Massa. At the top, before going down to Fornoli, you cross a gallery overlooking Carrara's marble quarries.

170/600 - After meeting Robin on the road, a Belgian guy who accompanied me about a dozen kilometers after Pistoia, I reach a Florence invaded by tourists.

260/600 km - San Giminiano. After shooting for almost an hour and a half looking for a place to spend the night, I find a mobile home available at the campsite. It's 23.30, three hours of sleep and then wake up and start again.

360/600 km - A slight mist envelops Siena early in the morning, after a quick passage in the center of the city of Palio is Val d'Orcia time.

Buonconvento, San Quirico d'Orcia and Pienza pass through fast, a steady climb up and down that never lets you pace. Radicofani is there, waiting for me, but not without making me suffer.

510 / 600km - Sorano. The village you don't expect, the true surprise of this Tuscany Road, suddenly sprouted in the mist as I descended from Castell'Ottieri accompanied by a slight rain.

600 / 600km - Arriving at the end of the first Tuscany Road edition in Capalbio Scalo when the clock marks at 22:40. I'm very happy with the 578km with 8,700 meters of elevation gain in 38h42 '.

AVOID THE SCYTHE: 10 BIKE SAFETY TIPS TO STAY ALIVE

16 October 2017 2:58:58 pm AEDT

Cycling is great/bonza/tops/lush/’tastic/wicked/well good. If you’re reading this, you probably agree but let’s just revel in it for a moment. It’s keeps you fit, is green and clean, and gives you a healthy shot of adrenalin meaning your brain is firing at full tilt at the end of a ride. And mmmn, endorphins. 

That being said, there are a plethora of hazards that come with cycling, especially in busy urban areas. In Australia, cycling accidents are on the rise and the majority of these happen during morning and afternoon rush hours.  

Here are some tips to help not get dead. Read on…

 

1. Protect your noggin:

Helmets are the most important piece of cycling safety equipment - they don’t cost much, and they could save your life. 

You’ll want to make sure your ears sit in the middle of the V shape of the straps, the front of the helmet sits two fingers width above your eyebrows, and just one finger can fit between your chin and the strap when the strap is done up. Ask a shop attendant for help if you’re unsure about fitting.

2. Wear reflective clothing:

It’s a good idea to optimise visibility when cycling. Wearing a reflective vest or backpack is a better look than being smeared across the road because a driver didn’t see you. This is especially important in rural areas, at night, and times of low visibility (fog, rain, snow).

If you don’t want to walk around all day with a reflective backpack, you can get a backpack cover to just use while cycling. 

3. Get lit:

You want people to see your fresh new wheels, right? You also want them to see you, especially at night. Cyclists should also have front and rear bike lights when cycling at night or when visibility is poor.

Some lights are designed to help you be seen by other road users, and some are designed to help you see where you’re going (headlights). This isn’t an ad. We don’t care if you buy Knog lights, JUST BUY LIGHTS!

4. Kit your bike out with safety gear:

There’s a whole heap of equipment that can be fitted to your bike. Some useful items are:

  • - Pedal reflectors to enhance visibility.
  • Bells to warn pedestrians.
  • - Pump and tool.
  • - Clip/strap in pedals if you’re using cycle cleats.
  • - Rear-view mirrors.
  • - Chain guards.
  • - First aid kit. These are easy to lug around, and you can be the hero if someone gets hurt.

 

5. Wear the right gear:

Along with visible clothes, you should be wearing covered shoes and clothing that won’t catch onto the chain or other parts of the bike. Tuck your shoelaces in as well, and wear waterproof clothing in bad weather.

6. Bring your phone:

When shit hits the fan, having a phone with you can get you out of some serious strife. Plus, it’s a good way to get in contact with emergency services if you or someone else gets in trouble.

7. Check yo'self :

Before going out on your bike, make sure you do a pre-start check. Ensure your tyres, chain, brakes, lights, spokes, and pedals are all working. If you need a hand, then ask a mate or your friendly local bike mechanic for assistance.


8. Cycle with your mates:

Cycle in groups when possible. You’ll be more visible as a pack of cyclists, and you’ll have friends around who can look after you if you're new to cycling.

9. Maintain your bike/gear:

Keep your bike looking and feeling the business. Bikes need to be serviced and maintained every few months. If you’re not sure what’s up, ask your new bff the bike mechanic.

10. Learn the rules:

Some simple road safety advice is to learn and follow the road rules.

Often accidents happen because people don’t know how to respond in situations involving cyclists and cars. Road rules are safety guidelines for motorists and cyclists alike, so learn them and follow them before heading out onto the road.
