2010 has started in style for Tribal Zine, we’re on our back wheel and kicking hard! After reinforcing our partnership with the world’s No. 1 trials magazine, Trial Mag, taking over the bicycle part of the magazine (the next issue will be amazing!), we entered into a partnership with Spain’s No. 1 trials forum, Trials-Riders, which has allowed us to launch a Spanish version of Tribal Zine, with the young Alvaro Lopez, a true trial hero, in charge. Now we’re pleased to announce another new partnership… Tribal Zine are now associated with the world leader in trials, the K-124, who have been leading the discipline for ten years now with their innovative new parts and bikes and their team of superhuman riders! Tribal Zine will now take part on the promotions of the group’s brands (Koxx, Yaabaa, Try-All, Nowar) and of their online shop K-124 House, managed by Maxime Gallard, will whom we have already undertaken some big projects (K-124 Days 2009). Tribal Zine will therefore follow closely the news and developments from the discipline’s world leader: their new products, which are always at the highest level of innovation, their dream team their events, promotions etc... This ambitious partnership will allow us to launch some new projects, one of which we are particularly excited about and which should be unveiled this week.

Of course, your trials webzine will continue its partnerships with the companies that have supported us throughout 2009, helping us to become what we are today. At their head, Ozonys and their online shop Sphère Bike, who also deal in Inspired, Trialtech, ViZ, Fans, Neon and Because, specialists in 26” and 20” competition bikes and more recently 24”! Ozonys have imposed themselves as one of the leaders in competition trials in less than four years and have just put their new range of bikes (the new Cannibals and Curves), which is one of the most accomplished ranges of the year, on the market. The future looks good for our second partner. Trialprod is our third partner for 2010. This shop, which has become very popular in France thanks to their seriousness and their impressive catalogue, intend to step things up this year and will lend us all of their support. At the same time we will be associated with the Singapore trials brand that is proving to be one of the more popular brands of the moment, Rockman Bikes. We will also continue our association with Thibault Marriaux, who launched this year the TMS-Bikevision team and developed one of the most innovative bikes on the market, the magnificent Evo 3. Thibaut has some surprises for us in 2010, with the arrival in the coming months of the Evo 3’s little brother, the Twenty, and a 100% street model, the Combo!

PNG - 290.2 kb So Tribal Zine is supported by the best and in turn promises you the best for 2010! We will be bringing you all of the news and developments that show that our sport is growing and growing and gaining more and more media attention. We’d like to thank all of our partners for 2010 for their support and confidence, especially Dominique Hermance, who logs on every day to check out the news! And thanks also to all of you who help to keep you “by riders for riders” site going by sending us your news, videos and photos from all four corners of the world. And to all the riders who stop bay for your daily dose of trials!

A look back at K-124 Days 2009...

Last year, K-124 Days and Tribal Zine worked together during the K-124 Days festival 2009: Tribal Zine were the official media for the festival and allowed you to follow the events live online from the K-124 House in Paris and from Buthiers. We then brought you THE video of the event, brilliantly edited by Marcus Gelhard. Get ready for more of the same for K-124 Days 2010. Tribal Zine will once again be at the heart of the event bringing you all of the news and media, as they happen!

The ninth K-124 Days; more impressive than ever…

PNG - 370.3 kb The 2009 season got off to a great start, with a particularly intense K-124 Days. Spectators were able to attend one of the most difficult and passionate competitions ever organised. For those o you who couldn’t make it, Tribal Zine, with the support of K-124 brought you day-to-day coverage of the event, with the first images of the future Sky 26”, which were officially unveiled at the festival (Presentation of the 2009 Sky 26") and then, the day after the competitions, a best of photo album and a sneak preview of the results (K-124 Days 2009 – Round 1 & The K-124 Days 2009 final).

Tribal Zine also brought you THE official K-124 Days video, filmed with three cameras (Marcus Gelhard, Nicolas Ollier and Nicolas Marsac) fitted with steadycam equipment, that allowed you to watcha and rewatch the highlights of the weekend! To watch it again, click here! It was a great HD multicamera video that allowed us to relive this amazing weekend of trials in all of its intensity and from all angles! It included the first footage of the famous Paris street session, led this year by Benito Ros. From there its straight to Buthiers for the K-124 Days festival proper, with some magnificent footage and some dynamic and professional editing. Between the footage of the two competitions, the two superhuman riders Vincent Hermance and Gilles Coustellier gave us their thoughts on the Super Elite sections, which were of an unprecedented level of difficulty, told us about their bikes (the first Sky prototypes), and admitted to feeling stress during comps, like any other human being… It’s 18 minutes of pure trials pleasure, to be watched and rewatched, preferable in HD! Here are a few images from what has been hailed as one of the best videos of the year…
