  • What’s your favourite lightweight overnight pack? Ours is the Levity 45 by @ospreyaustralia | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • Hitting the high ground just as a severe storm cell approaches may be foolish but I was glad I went lightweight for this overnighter. After shooting this, we made a hasty b-line to our camp spot and hunkered down, thanks to the @ospreyaustralia for the Levity 40l, ultra-light pack. | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • Are you whinging about this hot and humid weather in Sydney? We’d highly recommend you go and get Frankd! | 📸 @richardmcgibbon |@frankdmtbapparel
  • Taking the men’s and women’s @frankdmtbapparel out for a spin. A full review of these awesome jerseys coming soon!🤟 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The Airborne 15 MTB pack from @uswesports is a cut above other packs with its unique cross over harness system. (No dancing monkeys were harmed in the making of this post) | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The women’s mid height Trail socks from @injinji are super-comfy, supportive and provide a blister free solution. What more could you ask for from a sock? Read the full review on our website, link in profile, 😊 | Photo 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The @7protection Project Knee pads are for racers and riders looking for lightweight, hard shell protection with a little extra coverage. | Photo 📸 @richardmcgibbon | #kneeprotection #mtblifestyle #7protection #bodyarmour #livetoride
  • When the load gets too heavy to shoulder, the @ospreyaustralia Transporter Wheeled Duffel Series rolling prowess feels like first-class treatment. Highly weatherproof TPU coated-nylon provide incredible water resistance while internal & external organisation pockets, compression straps, and padded grab handles make hauling, tossing or dragging these packs easier.

  • In near 100% humidity and 35 degree heat, we were incredibly thankful to be testing the @frankdmtbapparel jerseys. The men’s “Blue Wheeler” and women’s “Tori” both have mesh side panels, designed just for a day like today. 🥵👍 | Photo credit: 📸 @richardmcgibbon | #mtblife #mtbgear #activelifestyle #mtblifestyle
  • We all need a little hope in our lives. 🥰 #hope #hopehubs #hopetech #sheffield
  • Here’s to thinking back to the week that’s just gone and to the weekend ahead. Let the great outdoors wash away all of your concerns and stresses that may have come before. Nature is the great leveller, so why not let it into your lives and level your body and mind this weekend. Give in to the awesomeness of the universe and be one with it. Enjoy it, cherish it and protect it. Now go have some fun! 😊 📸 @richardmcgibbon
