The BMC Enduro Racing Team was formed in the beginning of 2014. Since then, they have taken the Enduro trails by storm and won no less than nine races in

Bliss Protection has been founded 2006 by Matthias Ascherl and his crew. The guys at Bliss - all of them are enthusiastic mountain bikers, skiers and snowboarders - were not satisfied with the current body armor on the market. Every product was - or even still is - too bulky and made you look like Robo-Cop. It was time to do something new, something different, something better! Bliss Protection is known as a riders brand and the mentality that comes along within. Consequently thinking outside the box is the daily grid at Bliss. They want thinner, more flexible, lighter and even more breathable protection, so they can ride longer and have more fun and comfort. There was nothing in the shops you can buy so far, so Ascherl and his crew started their own protection company.
