Action cameras and the brand GoPro have just about become synonymous at this point, but they certainly are not the only option to capture your adventures.  One new competitor that is working their way onto the scene is the Canada-based Waspcam.  Waspcam action cameras have set themselves up with a product that can seriously rival the powerhouse GoPro, or at the least provide another option for active people looking for cameras. With their slogan “Prove It,” Waspcam is aiming to provide cameras for everyone; from the weekend warrior all the way to the professionals.  And with that goal, the first thing that most will notice about the Waspcams is their price point.  They have three main cameras (with different packages available for two of them) all at […]

Every so often, we get a fresh motorcycle product that does something completely new.  That’s the case with Vololights license plate lights and the Vololights module.  Vololights illuminate on their own during any type of deceleration, even if the brakes are left untouched.  The goal is to increase following distances and to help prevent rear end collisions by drivers who are not paying close enough attention to the motorcycle in front of them.

Here in the Midwest, the snow pack is pretty disappointing so far and even non-existent in some areas.  We got spoiled from last year’s amazing snow totals.  It was the best snowmobile riding that we have had in recent years.  In contrast, this year there are many sleds that still have yet to hit the trails and we are already half way through the season.  But with that said, there is still some riding to be had! There are still places where we can bring our sleds to ride, or you might even be one of the lucky ones to have enough snow to ride on where you live.  In either case, you are most likely not going to find premium riding conditions.  The trails are getting beat down […]

Yes, you can spend a small fortune and get a premium helmet with all of the bells and whistles.  But then again, you can spend a lot less and still get a premium helmet that checks all of the boxes that you need from a helmet.  GMAX helmets have set their sights on becoming the top choice in the latter category. There are many value conscious riders out there that look for the gear that will give them the most bang for their buck.  Often these are beginner or casual riders, but a growing number of experienced riders are joining in on the value hunt as well with the prices of machines and other gear on the rise in recent years.  A GMAX helmet can provide all […]
