Now that's what I call TESTING!

Posted in Rated or Slated by Matt Ward on Mon 25 Jan '10


You know MST, a few pairs of shoes here and there, we like to take our time over these things. The guys at like to test things with a little more gusto it seems. Goodness knows how many pairs of shoes hit the trails on this little test, but it was a lot!


Stephan and his merry band of grippies hit the woods and mountains to test out some of the very best offerings for 2010, ready for a nice big mag feature in the February edition of German online, off-road mag Trail Magazin...

(UPDATE: Gripmaster tells me it was 92 pairs!!!)

    cheers, gripmaster
