Remember the old Blackburn Mammoth pump? This was one of the first mini pumps optimized for mountain biking and it was a heck of a product when we purchased it over a decade ago the during the infancy of Mtbr.com. Well the brand has gone through a lot of transition and we are happy to report that it is going through a renaissance as they’ve redesigned a lot of their products (including the Mammoth pump) and Blackburn is doing more to support riders and mountain biking.
We’re testing a bunch of new Blackburn products now so stay tuned for updates. Meanwhile, check in to see what they’re up to.
Designed with Blackburn’s spirit of adventure ethos as primary driver, the company’s Out There website is a portal to tales from two iconic cycling routes, the Pacific Coast Highway and the Great Divide. Each route serves as blank canvas for the Blackburn ambassadors — nicknamed “Rangers” — who document the adventures they have along the way, then share them on this new website.
Whether tackling rugged off road passes or roughing it through the soaking rains of the Pacific Northwest, these experiences are truly about getting out into the world and exploring by bicycle. The new website also includes lots of useful hints and entertaining anecdotes to help you plan your own “Out There” adventure.
