About ACRE Hydration Packs and Riding Apparel
The ACRE Trail Systemâ„¢ is the culmination of a life spent in the wild. It's about couch surfing our way across five continents, car camping at the base of the ski lift in January, or a weeklong bivy trip in the snow covered backcountry of Colorado. Our idea of "the wild" is a way of life that may seem familiar to some. It's these experiences that drive us to create gear that enables maximum enjoyment by minimizing the negative effects that come along with exposure to the elements. ACRE is driven to provide gear to get you farther, faster and back. Enjoy the ride, no matter the conditions.

    That is a great set of shots and descriptions. A personal story, tales of adventures, and typical Dave Trumpore photo eye candy. This is the good stuff and unique to Vital. I'm all for seeing pictures and videos of races, fast riders, steezy style, and big lines, but the bike life is seldom covered, especially as eloquently as this. More of this, please. I love it.

    haha, @pininator we had all had one or two too many and had been messing about doing tricks on the minibike for the camera for quite some time before that shot, hence the bleeding. However, Joey had no clue he was getting covered in beer on this one and it's just one take, spur of the moment goofing around.
