The Sea Otter Classic is in full swing and attendees are enjoying their time racing bikes, hanging out, and talking to exhibitors. The feedback loop of products depends on the end-user and Sea Otter is a great conduit for that to happen.

At Sea Otter, the food trucks were busy churning out some tasty food for the attendees.

Most racers are enjoying themselves and are happy to be racing again. Sea Otter isn’t allowed to use water due to a shortage ban currently going on so the courses for downhill, dual slalom, and others make it much harder to build and maintain. Racers are making the most of it but the courses are a bit rougher than normal but hey that’s why we have suspension.

In the Sea Otter sun, you need sunglasses and there are plenty available at the venue including some stylish offerings from Spy Optic. They had their Monolith sunglasses front and center for consumers to purchase along with other traditional sunnies.

Alchemy’s 2022 Arktos features an all-new flip chip modification that now offers the ability to transform the Arktos from a capable, playful down-country bike with a steeper, more maneuverable geometry to a wickedly fast enduro machine. In addition, the flip chip modification makes it incredibly easy to convert the Arktos from a 29” bike to a mixed-wheel arrangement, further expanding the Arktos’ already impressive versatility.

Alchemy also launched their new gravel bike, the Rogue.
