The biggest event of its kind in Scotland, with the Adidas Rotating Climbing Wall, AfterShokz Marathon Challenge, a 10K race and SCROPS branded cycle tracks, it's a great day out for anyone with an interest in anything sport-related.
Friday morning we set out for Glasgow, to exhibit at the Scottish Cycling Running and Outdoor Pursuits Show. A great opportunity to showcase the Hedkayse | ONE and introduce the imminent launch of Hedkayse | UNIQUE but also the perfect opportunity to explore the latest tech and innovation on the scene.
Over 100 exhibitors in one hall for 2 days, these were the ones that stood out for us. Although given the time we could have easily doubled this list!
A well known, globally established brand retailing cycle apparel and working with some of the world’s top cyclists. Endura was at SCROPS with their custom brand Endura.Me. Giving cyclists the opportunity to design and personalise race jerseys and bib shorts with literally anything from team colours to their favourite piece of artwork, this is the innovation that cycling apparel was crying out for. Designed online and produced here in the UK the range is easily accessible and perfect to ensure you stand out from the crowd.
On our radar for a while having bumped into them at previous retail and trade shows, it was great to see their product development and innovation continues. This weekend they were not only retailing their current product The L-Bow Rear Bike Light, a great piece of kit created to encourage vehicles to pass your bicycle at a safe distance by drastically improving visibility, road presence and therefore safety, but also creating awareness of their latest Kickstarter campaign due to go live for the L-Bow MK11. L-Bow MK11 will improve on weight, luminosity and be more user-friendly. Head over to their website to sign up and keep in touch with their progress and be the first to back their MK11 L-Bow.
Edible exhibits are always popular and it's not easy to stand out from the crowd but RAWVELO definitely achieved that with their totally natural, organic, vegan range of energy bars, gels and hydration drinks. Dishing out samples to the eagerly awaiting public they were constantly busy. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a sustainable source of energy that tastes amazing too...Especially the walnut brownie bar containing only 7 all-natural ingredients and all the endurance fuel required for even the toughest run or ride!
Also supplying incredible eats were Veloforte.cc
, two very different brands but both worth investing time and appetite into!
It would be rude not to write about our neighbours for the weekend! Cool Bikes, simple stand manned by two cool guys selling Marins "Made for Fun" concept with a range of bikes suitable for riding rugged trails to entering your first race, taking your commute home, backpacking to remote campsites, or just exploring the neighbourhood bike paths. If you're considering a new bike they are definitely worth a look.
You couldn't fail to miss these guys with rows of people wrapped from toe to thigh in what looked like inflatable trousers, REBOOTS recovery products, take the regeneration of athletes to the next level and provide them with the support to achieve their goals. Not an off the cuff purchase but a serious investment for those of you looking to elevate your training to the next level.

Runderwear solve a problem that is the bane of many runner’s lives - chafing! Started by two gents who met at Loughborough University with a passion for running, they soon realised that whilst technical outwear for runners existed there was no such underwear. Underwear continues to be their core focus but as the range expands the ethos to provide runners with the ultimate comfort and eliminate chafing continues.
Genuinely an incredible day for anyone with a passion for anything active. Check out the SCROPS
website for more information and make sure you're first in line for next years tickets!
