Why cant mountain bike movies be more like this? It makes 'Roam' etc... look like a mbuk free dvd production. Life cycles, follow me and speed kings were great but to be honest the production levels of this snowboard movie piss all over anything biking wise. But its all just opinions at the end of the day! Enjoy this teaser...

New for 2010

>> Saturday, 16 January 2010

Evening all,
So the 2010 Setup Clothing website is finally online SetupClothing.com.

New clothing includes some nice new designs printed onto some "rite nice" t-shirts made by B&C Europe.
We also got some new stuff in the Superfit t-shirt range and some awesome new comfy hoodies in 3 bold colours.

Website wise we are all networked up with FaceSpaceTube:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Setup-Clothing/428910150656?ref=mf
http://www.myspace.com/setupclothing
http://www.youtube.com/user/setupindustries

Decided to give Twatter a miss as its a bit gay and I highly doubt anyone really wants valuable information such as: "Setup Clothing is eating a Digestive", "Setup Clothing is sat looking at a computer screen" etc...

Also on the new webber, we have a little gallery of some choice photo's from the past few years (thanks to various crew members!).

Stuff is still moving and being sorted, so we will hopefully have a few more members of the Setup family before the spring + some more prints and the return of the Premium Hooded Sweatshirt when our supplier pulls its finger out.

Thanks everyone for the support in the past 12 months, here's to a good 2010!

Cheers & Good Riding!

Ralph Wachter @ DirtGarden Jam

>> Sunday, 27 September 2009






Some words from Ralph Wachter:

First of all i have to mention that Nikki and his girlfriend did an awesome job in organizing the annual dirtgarden jam.
The jumps were in a perfect condition and they ve also build a satellite dish to give the course a new spicy twist.
Riders from all over Austria, two Czech dudes as well as Amir Kabbani and some other guys from good old germany showed up and presented their moves. Matthias competed in the pro class whereas i only competed in the amateur class. My goal was i to finish last as i'm much more of a trail rider than going for big moves. Unfortunately one of my opponents crashed and i showed more tricks than planned i missed my goal. Matthias went big on the course and unveiled some nice moves on the big line.
in the end Amir Kabbani won pro ahead of Nikki Leitner and Andi Brewi. the best trick award went to one of the Czech riders showing a smooth tailwhip to barspin.
