The sturdy, no-nonsense brother-in-law of our now famous Speed Strap, the Mettle Cycling Slow Strap combines all the convenience of the Leisure Strap with a modular system that gives the maximum level of stability when carrying your camera on the bike. We developed the Slow Strap to meet the demands of adventure riding when shooting quick and from the hip wasn’t as important as keeping the camera totally locked down.
Even cooler, this new system is 2 pieces, allowing for you to remove the stabilizing strap, converting the Slow Strap into a Leisure Strap! 3 points of contact ensure no shifting or rotating while utilizing your camera’s existing harnesses - no attachment to the tripod mount (this voids some warranties and can ruin your camera body).
Offered only in our Rasta color way.
Activated Charcoal is proven to absorb 1000x its own mass in toxins, bacteria, dirt, and oil from the skin. This key ingredient is supremely antibacterial and anti-fungal; bringing only the best for your sensitive bits.
Best on black chamois and just fine for colors, this black riding cream left no permanent stains during our testing while being vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free, and oh so pleasant smelling (Teakwood).
A 4oz jar is available as well as our “Brevet” size for air travel and bike-packing… or if you have a fear of commitment.
We knew this idea had legs when it was first devised riding across Northern Idaho. 6 months and many formulations later, we’ve perfected a new chamois cream with advantages beyond the highest expectations. The charcoal is so effective it took many formulations to even keep the fragrance present.

Friday 6/21 - Come celebrate the longest day of the year with a bunch of silly hooligans, bring your lights and a smile, and prepare for a nice cafe social where the coffee is donated by Breadwinner and the snacks are on us… all before the morning rush hour.
ALL HAIL GULONVARG - The traits of Gulonvarg are an amalgamated fantasy; reflective of Mettle’s collective squad. Able to cooperate as a small horde and calculate the next move like a pack of wolves; quiet until prodded; capable of trampling creatures much larger than itself…Fangs for blood. Horns for perseverance. Strength in unity…
