Mutt // RS-13 // Retro Custom Style From The Summit To The Shops






Mutt Motorcycles would like to introduce you to its newest 125cc masterpiece to be born in Brum, the stylish RS-13 // 125. It takes in the classic Mutt stylistic approach; a retro aesthetic touch twinned with a riding experience like no other 125cc on the market. The 125cc air-cooled single cylinder engine is the ultimate companion to weave you through the busy urban jungle all the way to the highest peaks with precision and style.

Chief mechanic Benny Thomas waxes lyrical on his newest creation: ‘’Mutt is about the classic bare bones, no frills ride. The RS-13 is indeed just the bones. We took our tried and tested rolling chassis and added some super wide Continental tyres, cut the rear of the frame nice and short with a stumpy little rear mudguard and put a hand made diamond stitched seat to park your ass on. A hand finished short fat mudguard was put up front and a set of street smart Renthal bars bolted on. We wanted the bike to have a real garage built vibe about it so we took a tank, stripped it back to bare metal and painted that wide black stripe on. Each tank is hand done, the scotch brite finish is different on each bike and that's what I really dig about this little thumper, there are no two RS-13's the same.”

With an affordable cost of £3,495 (+OTR) the RS-13 is truly customisable and original with each one having its own individually hand-finished petrol tank. The tank is brushed and clear-coated to prevent rusting, before a stark black stripe is applied with an overlay of the Mutt logo, making each one as individual and trail blazing as it’s rider. This is the latest in a line of powerful engines from a brand who have built up a cult following thanks to their attitude, level of customisation and affordable quality of their products.

Mutt machines are already owned by a wide array of motorcycle lovers including Tom Hardy (Actor), Reggie Yates (Entertainer / Documentarian), James May (The Grand Tour/Presenter) Skin (Musician/Skunk Anansie), Ben Ransom (Rugby), Iwan Thomas (Athlete), Rob Halliday (Musician/The Prodigy) and Lee Malia (Musician/Bring Me The Horizon).

The RS-13 is a bike for the adventurers, the dreamers and the explorers. Mutt deliver again with a Retro Styled 125 which refuses to compromise on performance in any locale, so jump on and let the RS-13 take you everywhere - from the summit to the shops.

Saucony Life on the Run: White Noise Collection






For Summer 2018, performance running brand Saucony is launching its Life on the Run: White Noise Collection. 

The new range takes inspiration from the mind-clearing effects of a good run and celebrates the way exercise, and running specifically, can help you break through the stresses and strains of modern life and help regain emotional and psychological balance.
EMEA Product Line Manager Isabel Gerhaeuser said “The distinctive speckled pattern on the upper of every shoe of the collection is a physical representation of white noise, and the coloured midsoles reference the clarity of thought that running brings.
As a company of runners, we all recognise the power of a lunchtime run to reinvigorate the soul and reset the mind before the working afternoon begins. This line is inspired by that process”.
The White Noise collection spans the most popular styles in the Saucony technical line. Every model is packed with the same running shoe technology as the regular models, including Saucony’s exclusive EVERUN midsole - providing continuous cushioning from the start to the end of the run. 
Leading the line is the new Ride ISO, Saucony’s best-selling running shoe, which for the first time includes the ISOFIT upper technology previously only utilised in top-end models. ISOFIT wraps around the foot ensuring great fit as the laces are pulled, whatever your foot shape.
The line also features the brand’s latest development, FORMFIT, which reduces pressure on the foot every time it hits the ground.  FORMFIT is three adaptable layers of foam which cradle the foot whilst putting the Topsole cushioning as close to the foot as possible for maximum pressure dispersion.
Dr Ben Martynoga, a British Neuroscientist explains that the feeling of escape from running is one proven from research rather than simply from anecdotes from millions of runners around the world.
“New studies present clear evidence that aerobic exercise such as running can trigger heightened activity within parts of the brain responsible for our ability to pay attention, to get away from distractions, to give us clarity of mind and to help us get out of the noise of daily life.”
The Life on the Run White Noise collection consists of eight styles, including the award-winning Triumph ISO, Hurricane ISO, Guide ISO and Kinvara 9.
The line is available from selected retailers around Europe and is priced from €120 - €160 (£100 - £140).

The line is available now at selected retailers
