The only name in packrafts as far as we are concerned. Alpacka has been setting the standard since they invented the category many years ago. As Jason says, "if you are racing in a boat other than Alpacka - you aren't really racing...."

"Picky bars are delicious and easy on my stomach, which is a tricky combination to solve while riding/ racing, actually. Sometimes, nerves and the monotony of food is hard to deal with, so good snacks are important to keep me fueled and even boost morale:). I wholeheartedly value what the founders have done with their experience as pro athletes, testing everything and creating food for performance needs."
In adventure racing and everyday life with kids, we use Nite Ize every single day. From gear ties that have fixed our bikes and backpacks in a pinch to using their lights to light up our bikes on night rides to keeping our kids and dogs entertained on all of our family missions. We love their products and we love sharing them at all our races!
We are so incredibly happy to be apart of the Amavara family. Their sunscreens are the best we have ever tried. Not only does it work in all elements, but it also works to protect the environment by using reef safe ingredients that doesn’t harm where we love to play.

Hands down the best electrolyte product we have ever used. Taking in enough salt during hot and hard trainings and races is key to being able to keep going. As endurance racers who race around the world testing ourselves physically and emotionally, we know salt is key.
