The G9 also connects to the user’s smartphone via Bluetooth and can also be connected to an on-board GPS navigator and MP3 player via 3.5mm socket.

      ActionGear TV Episode 16 with Team Garwood

      ActionGear TV Episode 16 with Team Garwood

      Written By Elzette

      

       

      The day Kevin and little Nicky walked into the ActionGear.TV studio, the entire team was inspired from the get-go. Nicky was wearing the biggest smile and greeted each one of us with a huge hug and a lot of love. The Garwood team is made up of Kevin and Nicholas, a father and disabled son triathlete team.

      When Nicholas was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a baby, Kevin took on his son’s disability and stopped taking part in any kind of sport – quit his job and stayed home to take care of his son he loved more than life itself. But after watching a video of an American dad who took part in races with his disabled son, Kevin got a new sense of hope in giving Nicky more in life. He showed Nicholas the video and saw his face light up.

       

      At first Kevin started training slowly. “I started out on a mountain bike but was so unfit everyone had to stop and wait for me.” Their first official race together was the 702 Walk the Talk before they tackled the Dome to Dome 40km cycle race. But one of the biggest feats must be completing the Iron Man in 2013! Kevin also tells us how Nicky would encourage him to go “faster, faster” and is one of the best motivators to have on these races. “I just love his attitude, he wants to change the world,” Kevin says proudly.

       

       

      Currently they are training for the France Challenge Vichy and Challenge Roth and we can’t wait to follow their career closely in 2015! The sky is the limit with Team Garwood. Check out their interview with us and why not give them some support on their Facebook page.

      Over the past decade Karen has travelled to over 30 countries and have stood on the tallest mountains. She mostly travels alone and is notorious for getting emotional when peaking a mountain. She also founded "Soap Kidz" which is an organisation that assists children by bringing them closer to nature and is an activist for all things litter-free and natural.

      Karen chats to us about some of her funny stories and why she feels so emotionally attached to the mountains as well as its people.

      ActionGear TV Episode 13 With James Pitman

      Written By Elzette

      James Pitman had a colourful life thus far from receiving two degrees to driving a truck with friends from Cape Town to London. He even quit his prestigious job to travel India for 8months. But the one adventure that has to be told is the fact that he flew 44 days around the world in a man made aircraft. What a crazy feat!

      He speaks to us about the challenges and what drove him to some of his adventures. He says he's busy researching the appropriate balance between work and play - can't wait for him to send us the recipe.
