Minato Sato Ares Bykes Pivotal

minato_saddle

Big news to start the week here on Flatmattersonline!

Flatland specific seats are a rare thing due to cost of the mould to make a seat, so this morning I was stoked to see Ares Bykes are releasing a Minato Sato signature pivotal. The seat looks like the classic KHE Watanabe especially the underneath section which is all so important for grabbing and comfort. Flatland Fuel are taking pre orders right now.

Quest BMX enter the Flatland Pedal Market!

Quest BMX just entered the flatland pedal market, here’s what Danny Sirkin over at Quest BMX HQ had to say about their new pedal.

“These are compact flatland-specific pedals that have chromoly axles and ball bearings. The name comes from the main road I used to ride, as a kid, when going back and forth to school. That same road connected me to all of my flatland friends, back in the day. While these may look similar to the Moto pedals, which are awesome, they do have different features and dimensions, plus they’re lighter! The best part is that the price is significantly lower! Less than half the price!”

These are available now at www.questbmx.com and next week at www.flatlandfuel.com

Introducing the IGI Dry Climate Cap

igi

Dub just hit me with some exciting product news that may change the peg game…

“Introducing IGI DRY CLIMATE CAP…IGI is proud to introduce a new idea to Flatland. It seems griptape and knurling just aren’t the ideal for our shoes and hands in a sport where repetition is key to success. Here at IGI, we’ve been looking for a new kind of grip, this technology is pricy and might not be cost effective for now, but this type of finish will outlast any type of knurling or griptape without destroying your hands or shoes. Tested and approved by Benjamin Hudson and Jean William Prévost for use in dryer, dustier climates such as Chile, California or even Beijing. These caps will keep your foot where it should be, mid-pivot when riding a dusty environment. Just keep a pair of these in your toolbox for use when necessary. A few pairs are available, but we are not looking to make sales for now, when it becomes more affordable to make this we will put em up for sale, contact us if you might be interested in them. DM, PM or send us a message at info@igibmx.com. igi #igotit photo by @DominicSalehPictures”.
