Matix

Clym­bers, here’s what we’ve got lined up for you today:

OTZShoes: In 1991, hunters dis­cov­ered the remains of a man who had been frozen for thou­sands of years. He was still wear­ing shoes. OTZShoes was born from the desire to recre­ate the ice­man’s footwear incor­po­rat­ing today’s trend, com­fort, and tech­nol­o­gy. Click through for styles for both women and men.

Matix: Time­less styling and qual­i­ty fab­rics don’t mean a thing if your clothes dis­in­te­grate when you scor­pi­on on the con­crete. Matix (pro­nounced “matt-icks”) durable, skate-inspired, fash­ion-for­ward gar­ments wel­come repeat­ed hard spills. Click through for Matix men’s apparel.

VAUDE: Head­quar­tered in south­ern Ger­many, VAUDE (pro­nounced “vah-day”) has its sites set on becom­ing Europe’s most envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly out­door brand. For­get leder­ho­sen, this green-mind­ed Ger­man brand spe­cial­izes in tech­ni­cal gear for moun­tain and bike sports. Check out our selec­tion of VAUDE cycling accessories.

SABRE: Influ­enced by every­thing from 50s clas­sics to 80s surf and skate, SABRE has a deep respect for roots and a sol­id intu­ition for the up and com­ing. Their inspi­ra­tion is bor­rowed from many places with one goal in mind: to inspire trends, not fol­low them.

Gre­go­ry: When you look at the suc­cess of Gre­go­ry today, it’s hard to imag­ine that founder Wayne Gre­go­ry first oper­at­ed the huge­ly suc­cess­ful com­pa­ny with lit­tle more than a sewing machine and a Volk­swa­gen van. Way to par­ty on, Wayne. Gre­go­ry packs have defined qual­i­ty, com­fort, and fit for the past 30 years. Be part of the excel­lent tra­di­tion today with Gre­go­ry packs, on sale at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Cycling Acces­sories: Cycling is about expe­ri­enc­ing the sim­ple things in life. A few sim­ple acces­sories can make the expe­ri­ence that much bet­ter. Upgrade your next ride with acces­sories from Giro, Crank Broth­ers, PDW, and more.

Hydra­Pak: Oak­land-based Hydra­pak spe­cial­izes in hydra­tion sys­tems for cyclists. The com­pa­ny’s research and devel­op­ment team works with pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes and com­muters alike to dial in the per­fect hydra­tion sys­tem for any­one on two wheels.

Free­hub Mag­a­zine: A bi-annu­al print pub­li­ca­tion, Free­hub Mag­a­zine is the pre­em­i­nent jour­nal for all things moun­tain bik­ing. Don’t order it just for your­self.

Argen­tine Explor­er: Did you know? Whether you’re look­ing for a dis­trac­tion or some triv­ia to impress your friends with today, you’ll want to start by research­ing the name Fran­cis­co Moreno. Born in Buenos Aires on May 31 (that’s today!), 1852, Moreno was a sci­en­tist and anthro­pol­o­gist who became one of the most famous explor­ers in Argen­tine his­to­ry. He’s sort of a Christo­pher Colum­bus meets Charles Dar­win meets Indi­ana Jones. Among many things, a nat­ur­al his­to­ry muse­um, a town, and the biggest glac­i­er in the coun­try bear his name. Moreno is per­haps most remem­bered for his adven­tures explor­ing remote regions of Patag­o­nia. On one of these mis­sions, he escaped cap­tiv­i­ty by an iso­lat­ed tribe just one day before he was to be exe­cut­ed by them.

Hap­py Tues­day, Clym­bers. Hope­ful­ly your mood this week is a lit­tle less gloomy than the Port­land skies have been after this past gor­geous, teas­ing week­end.

In the mean­time, we’ve got some great lifestyle appar­el and audio equip­ment on the dock­et to help get you through your next rainy day. Find bliss through the bleak-sky blues while wear­ing a com­fort­able hoody from Impe­r­i­al Motion and rock­ing out with a pair of Skull­can­dy head­phones. Or shake your fist at the weath­er in total defi­ance while wear­ing a pair of sun­glass­es and a sweet new watch by Vestal.

Rasp­ber­ry Mon­key Brain: Did you know? We’re excit­ed to have Skull­can­dy on the menu today at The Clymb but the orig­i­nal skull can­dy is of course brains. Deli­cious, deli­cious brains. But unless you’re a zom­bie, you have to actu­al­ly pre­pare the dish. Remem­ber that scene in Indi­ana Jones and the Tem­ple of Doom where Indy and com­pa­ny are served chilled mon­key brains in bowls made from the ani­mals’ decap­i­tat­ed heads? Accord­ing to Jonathan Deutsch, Ph.D., in his book, They Eat That? A cul­tur­al Ency­clo­pe­dia of Weird and Exot­ic Food from Around the World, eat­ing mon­key brains straight from the skull like that is based pure­ly on leg­end and if done in actu­al­i­ty could result in seri­ous health risks. Brain requires more for prepa­ra­tion than a saw and a spoon. For one, it needs to be cleaned before being ingest­ed. Deutsch rec­om­mends bathing the meat three times: first in cold water with a small amount of vine­gar, sec­ond in a cold water bath and third with salt­wa­ter. The cast of Tem­ple of Doom of course did­n’t have to stom­ach any actu­al pri­mate tis­sue when tak­ing a taste. Prop­mas­ters used cus­tard and rasp­ber­ry sauce to make their dish.

Ever won­der what pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes tune up to keep calm when sur­round­ed by the inevitable stoke right before drop­ping from a heli­copter to ski down a 50 degree pitch? Or what Olympic ski­er Jen Hudak plays before she makes her grace­ful ascent into a half-pipe?  Or maybe, you just need some new music ideas for the new pair of Skull­can­dy head­phones that you just bought from The Clymb.

Check out some favorites from the Skull­can­dy team riders.

It seems I may have been a bit pre­ma­ture (per­haps to get the week­end here soon­er?) in yes­ter­day’s blog when I teased that our final GEIGERRIG event of 2011 would be this Wednesday.

It’s actu­al­ly today.

This is a good thing because that means you can get your hands on their inno­v­a­tive, spray-action hydra­tion packs that much soon­er. I did get every­thing else right, though: Their spray-action, bite-don’t-suck valves mean that you can hydrate more fre­quent­ly and effec­tive­ly. It also makes clean­ing off gear, cuts and scrapes, and sweaty brows a breeze. Shar­ing is also sim­ple and clean, with no wor­ry of germ or food trans­fer­ence should you want to share a drink with your pet or run­ning partner.

If you missed out on our pre­vi­ous GEIGERRIG event, now’s the per­fect time to cor­rect that. This will be our last GEIGERRIG event of 2011, so don’t sleep on this one. Get your GEIGERRIG at exclu­sive Clymb mem­ber pric­ing of up to 50% off here.

Every GEIGERRIG pack comes with a SKULLCANDY MOUNTAIN PASSPORT, filled with dis­count pass­es to some of the best resorts in the U.S. and Cana­da. Sim­ply reg­is­ter the code inside your pass­port at the GEIGERRIG site and then redeem the pass­es at one of the par­tic­i­pat­ing resorts. In most cas­es, using one pass pays for the pack. In every case, using more than one pass makes you a profit.

Of course, we could­n’t offer up such a great deal with­out fea­tur­ing the ultra hot head­phones and ear­buds from Skull­can­dy that are like med­i­cine for your ears. Score those and Skull­can­dy tees/sweatshirt at up to 50% off, here.

Don’t for­get: if you pick up an exclu­sive The Clymb tee, your entire order ships for free. Stop by Face­book or Twit­ter if you have any ques­tions or you need an invite to shop The Clymb.

Check out the GEIGERRIG pre­sen­ta­tion at this year’s Out­door Retail­er show:

No stranger to The Clymb, Skull­can­dy makes some of the slick­est, high-qual­i­ty ear­buds and head­phones on the mar­ket. We’re offer­ing up a selec­tion of both at up to 60% off. Seri­ous­ly, check out the styles. There are some new ones we’ve not fea­tured before.

And just in time to spend it on the great brands above, lat­er today we’ll be announc­ing the two win­ners of our pho­to con­test. Mem­bers were encour­aged to share pho­tos of their Clymb gear in action this past July 4th week­end. We’ll be giv­ing away two $50 cred­its to The Clymb at 5pm EST today.
