Kali is loading up the truck and headed to Outerbike in Bentonville, AR. If you don't already know, Outerbike is a series of bike demo events to beat all bike demo events. We will be hitting up the one later this month in Arkansas, setting up our tent, loaning out some lids and generally taking in all that is Bentonville. We have heard, read and seen the pictures and it appears there are some amazing two-wheeled adventures happening down there, but we decided to reach out a local expert, prior to arriving, to get the download. In the process we learn...

Jordie Lunn was not just some epic mountain bike stunt rider, YouTube star, podium worthy athlete or an Instagram doubleclick, for us at Kali Jordie Lunn was family.  The news of his loss is devastating to everyone here. He has been a member of the extended Kali family for years and we have been following his career for much longer than that. "Jordie was easy to be around," said Brad Waldron, Kali founder. "He never made you feel like he didn’t have time for you even at Crankworx, his biggest stage." As with all our athletes, we much preferred to see his smiling...

We think it is safe to say that Matt MacDuff is most famous for his heartbreaking 2016 crash on his 40-foot Loop of Doom. If you haven’t heard about the Loop of Doom or Matt’s attempt to ride the behemoth, you should totally get your googles on and check it out. It seems like just yesterday when things didn’t go Matt’s way on the big loop, but it has actually been 3 and half years, so we were stoked when Matt dropped a new video, Matt MacDuff, Revenge, last month on YouTube. “Matt is intense,” said Brad Waldron, boss and resident...
