Kali Protectives MX Helmets

For the past two months Motostrano has been secrety selling a new line of helmets put out by local SF Bay area clan Kali Protectives. Call it "test selling", maybe. The good people at Kali kindly visited our showroom recently to introduce the helmet to us and we were intrigued, evnetually leading us to let the products into our catalog. Actually, our first impression of the helmet was something a lot like "Holy shit! that is light!"

Yet another MX helmet on the market you say? Not really, but yea, a little. But these do stand out, both technically and graphically. Super light weight and feature packed. The EPS liner of the Kali helmets are sprayed into the helmet shell, rather than made outside the shell and glued in as other helmets. This creates a lighter and stronger helmet, more solid. 

The Kali Aatma helmets are very vented and have all the usual higher end features as far as removable liners and so forth. Priced at $299.00.  They say "From the dreams of riders to the scratch pads of aerospace engineers, revolutionary Composite Fusion™ technology is introduced with the Kali AATMA helmet. Weighing in at 1200 grams (*), the AATMA represents one of the lightest, most durable and best fitting motocross helmets imaginable.UNIVERSAL SELLING POINTS Fiberglass Shell with Composite Fusion EPS Liner. Integrated Airflow System. Antibacterial, removable, washable liner. Meets or exceeds AMA, FIM, CCS, Formula-USA racing standards"

The Kali Mantra helmet is a step down and a great value for the buck. They say "Kali MANTRA Helmet is our most elemental helmet, featuring an ABS shell for overall toughness and impact resistance. The MANTRA Helmet is both feature and graphic rich, providing a new reference in head protection.Product Features: • ABS Shell with EPS Liner • Integrated Airflow System • Breakaway visor design • Antibacterial, removable, washable liner • Safety certifications include ECE22.05, DOT (FMVSS 218) • Meets or exceeds AMA, FIM, CCS, Formula-USA racing standards"

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
