Kali Protectives Launches New Viva BMX/DJ helmet

Product Summary

The Viva is the best helmet we’ve ever created that no one will ever give a shit about, but that’s ok. We designed this helmet for us. We wanted a helmet that was as comfortable and low profile as a non-
certified skate helmet, but integrated all of the top tier safety technologies from our motocross line. The result is the Viva, the most technologically advanced BMX/Dirt Jump helmet ever made (for whatever that’s worth). It’s about the same size as a skate helmet, super light, and uses a layer of low density foam in conjunction with multi density geometrically shaped foam to dissipate a broad range of impacts – sort of like a crumple zone for your head. We’ve in-molded this unique EPS cocktail into a durable dent resistant ABS shell, with a bottom polycarbonate wrap, and garnished the interior with a pad set designed to reduce sweat drippage.

Product Features

- Low profile design to mimic non certified helmet look and fit

- Polycarbonate wrap to extend foam life

- Durable dent resistant ABS Shell

- Moisture wicking padset

- Extra padset included for sizing

- Adjustable Straps

Retail Highlights

- Retail price is $50 USD

- Meets CPSC and EN1078 Standards

- Available in 3 sizes: Small, Medium, & Large

- Comes in 3 Colorways: Black, Green, & White


- COMPOSITE FUSION: Unlike standard construction helmets where the foam is glued into a shell, we inject the EPS liner directly into the shell. The advantage is that it eliminates the gap between the shell and foam, which reduces the number of impacts the brain is subjected to in a crash. Rather than two impacts (ground to shell, shell to foam), there is only one impact with a


- COMPOSITE FUSION 3: We’ve improved on our original in molding technology by adding multi density triangular pyramids throughout the EPS liner, to better dissipate energy laterally. This allows us to reduce the size of the shell, and use a lighter density


Transition Bikes Announces It's Very First Kids Bike, The Ripcord

Ferndale, WA - May 6th, 2015 - Designed for use by an average size and age range of riders from 8 - 12 years old, this 24" wheel, 9 speed geared machine is ready to go out of the box without a single upgrade. Utilizing a 26" air sprung fork and a standard size rear air shock, offering 100mm of front and rear travel the suspension can be dialed in perfectly for lighter weight riders within this age range. With geometry complimentary to the quick progression of young riders, The Ripcord can be used as a neighborhood explorer but really shines when taken to the trails. Its 67 degree head tube angle and short 381mm chainstays make it a capable and nimble bike both climbing and descending. A simple 1 x 9 drivetrain is used to eliminate the complexity of learning double shifting, and an e*thirteen LG1 chain retention device assuring an optimum ride.
"We wanted to build a kid's bike that provided the same killer riding experience as the rest of our line, and the last thing we wanted to do was create a product that required immediate upgrades due to sub-standard components. The young riders these days pick mountain biking up so quickly they can easily outgrow their equipment, and we wanted to be sure our bike was going to go the distance. The Ripcord is meant to do that and much more." - Transition Bikes Marketing manager Lars Sternberg
Parental testimony-


"It's been so cool to enjoy real trails with my son. The Ripcord's versatility enables us to go out and have fun together on real mountain bike trails, without compromise. I've been so pleasantly surprised to witness how the Ripcord immediately made my son a more confident rider. He hits jumps, drops, and rough sections now that he wouldn't have dreamed of before." - Matt Thompson / Momentum Trail Concepts


Rider testimony-


"It's a really fun bike, and that's what I like about it. I like riding downhill on it a lot a lot because I get to go really fast. It was the first time I went over a bunch of rocks and now it's actually kind of easy because I just pretend they don't exist. It was easy to figure out the gears and I climb hills a lot now and am getting used to the feeling. I like pedaling uphill and looking for a good downhill part where I can not pull the brakes at all and catch a lot of air!" - Cash Thompson
If you've got an aspiring young mountain biker in the house, and looking for a great bike that will provide them some of the best smiles per miles value then look no further, the Ripcord is here.

The folks at Transition Bikes are at it again trying to get your hard earned money from you. This time in the form of a kids do-it-all shredder bike that helps small persons progress to new levels. This video features the all new 24" wheeled full suspension kids bike the Ripcord and features father and son duo Doug and Carter Russell showing you why you should never compromise with your equipment.
