A few weeks ago the german “Rad Race” crew and a fleet of our ARISE– and HOOK Gravelbikes made their way onto the mystic island of Iceland.

As Iceland brings with it a lot of challenges, these are best illustrated with photos, as there are simply not enough words to express this cold and hostile environment. Luckily the journey was accompanied by outdoor photographer Lars Schneider, and the images he came back with make you almost feel the freezing temperatures, see the steep mountains to be climbed, and the rough gravel to be negotiated. But above all its the breathtaking landscapes that will be most remembered and inspire us to one day take a journey there ourselves.
