If you’ve seen a runner or cyclist out in complete darkness with a glowing chest harness, you already know Noxgear. Or at least, you’ve seen them. The concept was created in Dayton, OH by two engineers, Simon Curran and Tom Walters. The idea actually stemmed from a night time game of Ultimate Frisbee, but eventually led to a completely new take on the safety vest.

Episode 51: Simon Curran and Tom Walters were high-level engineers developing top-secret projects for the US Government. They tell their story (and all of its twists and turns) about how Noxgear came to be, and why it means so much to them.

Episode 50: CoachOB, OBrien Forbes joins us this week in studio to talk about his family lineage, being a coach, a psychologist, and what it means to be tough. Rule #5’s need not apply.

Episode 49: Adam McNeill and his brother Mason decided to start their own custom apparel line a few years ago. Hear about their path as entrepreneurs and learn what they think makes Be Free Ride Bikes different. Also, we have big news for all of the Pebbles…
