Porter @ Crankworx

Here's a video of Porter at Whistler for Crankworx this year...we took a little mission down Crank It Up and "cranked" out this clip for you. Enjoy!


Introducing "The Porter"...

Based on all the inquiries we're getting about this bike, we're re-posting the sneak peek. Can't stress how important it will be to talk to your local shop if you want one of these...just a small handful will be produced!

Now for the moment you have all been waiting for...details on the slopestyle bike! "The Porter" is about as close to an exact replica to the complete bike that Eric Porter rides. We most all the same parts he uses on his own bike. Yes, it's expensive! But like good wine and fast cars, most of the finer things in life are expensive.

This bike rocks. The pics don't do it justice at all!

I'll caution ya'll that we ordered VERY limited quantities of these. If you want one, talk to your local dealer. These are part of our 2010 line, so we'll be getting them into stock in the Fall.

Summer Of Shred: CALI

Here it is, the complete Cali Roadtrip episode from Summer Of Shred. This shows how Wilson came to join the Haro family -- by not only tazering himself to get down to SoCal, but by working and riding super hard to "win" his first Steel Reserve frame from Phil. Porter and Blake are also featured in this clip, and Jill has a cameo at the end, too!


Phil in Africa...adiridas Mashatu + Capetown

You may have read the stories in the magazines about these trips...here are the video clips to go with them! Phil absolutely SLAYS IT in the Capetown clip...check 'em out!


Porter Fun Check

Hey check out my fun check at VitalMTB! In case you don't know what that is, it's a term we invented! We were going to do a bike check, but then since I've got all this other great we figured we'd throw it in there too. Enjoy!



Porter and I are up in Whistler right now for Crankworx and it is pretty much the best thing ever! We got our hands on an HD POV camera and did some runs down the mountain. Stay tuned for a clip (with regular HD footage mixed in) from our session! Here are a few screenshots from my POV to tide you over. I mostly followed Porter, but for these shots, I turned the camera sideways and we jumped bar-to-bar down a section of "Crank It Up".

Porter shralping:

Look Ma, no hands!


Haro Team At Crankworx Colorado

Here is a video clip that we put together with the Haro team at Crankworx Colorado. Brian Miller was absolutely on fire every time I pointed the camera at him...expect big things from this kid, he is an absolute slayer!

Doesn't this want to make you ride your bike? Eric Porter shredding on his Extreme X7 somewhere in Utah.

Bike Check

Pinkbike is working on a bikecheck on the new Porter bike, in the meantime they posted a few photos of it from Crankworx Colorado. Everyone seems pretty pumped on it in the comments!

Also found this rad photo of my Haro teammate Brian Miller tailwhipping off a drop in his run.

Sorry for all the links, but I figured it's better than just stealing the photos off their site!


Garrett Rose wins 2009 Jr Expert Mountain Cross National Championship!

Congrats to Haro's Garrett Rose! He took a convincing win aboard his Haro Shift R5 at the US National MTB Championships held at Sol Vista, CO July 17-19. Garrett's win earns him the title of US National Champion in the Junior Expert Mountain Cross class and the coveted Stars-n-Stripes National Championship jersey.

"My National Championship race was extremely fun and almost felt like slow motion at times," says Garrett. "It feels awesome to be one of the fastest Jr Expert men in the USA. I look forward to racing more and someday soon becoming a Pro".

At just 15 years old, Garrett is quickly moving up the ranks in the mountain cross classes, leaving his competition in the dust.

He's got one heck of a future ahead of him!
