This week we sat down with Jordan Paul, one of our sponsored athletes, to learn a bit more about who he is and why he does what he does. These interviews are especially fun for us, because it gives us a chance to really get to know riders from around the world who are competing at all different levels and have very different stories. Jordan is no exception.
One of the questions that we get asked most often is which bearing type is the best choice for a rider’s bike. When faced with the choice of standard, FSS, or FSS with CX Seal, many riders simply aren’t sure what is going to work best for them. So, we wanted to sort out some of the confusion, and help you better understand how each of our bearing types will benefit you so that you can make an informed decision.
Cycling performance goes far beyond just rolling resistance. Understand all of the variables that go into resistance loss and how you can fix them to make yourself a faster cyclist.
Mark Kransz, one of Hawk Racing’s sponsored athletes for 2019, raced to two third place finishes at the 2019 Polar Roll in Ishpeming, Michigan. Despite a blizzard and an ice storm that left the trails in challenging condition, Mark persevered and pulled out a third place finish in the XC event as well as the snow bike enduro.

As the new year continues to march on, we here at Hawk Racing find ourselves deep in preparations for all of the new things coming in 2019. This year will be bringing quite a bit of change around Hawk Racing. Some of it you will see, some of it you won’t. However, even the unseen things bring benefits to you. As our company grows and bring on new staff, we are able to expand into programs and areas that we otherwise, frankly, just didn’t have the time and energy to take care of in a manner that our customers would deserve. This new year allows just such exciting new changes. Our new web design is more appealing, user-friendly, and lays the groundwork for some really exciting things to come.
Gone are the days when ceramic bearings were a technology limited to the pro peloton. As more and more of the cycling masses look to advanced technology formerly seen in use only by the pros, the question arises of where the hard-earned money of the average cyclist should be spent. What technologies will get them the largest gains for their money. Similarly, what upgrades are more about the name than the performance. Ceramic bearings are all the rage, but does their performance really live up to their hype?
