Road to the Olympic Games 2012 in London

Maximilian Levy at UCI Track World Championships 2012
What’s good people?
A lot of cycling going on at the moment. First week of the Tour de France 2012 is over and besides a lot of crashes it is a exciting event. I’m curious about the next two weeks.
Right after the Tour the Olympic Games 2012 in London will start. This year the Games open with the road cycling events on 28th of july. But much more interesting are the Track Championships starting 2nd of august. A lot germany rider will compete and some of them will sport the AURORA Velcro straps in their races. They found them at the KEIRIN cycling cafe in Berlin and the good people at KEIRIN provided them with several pairs to check them out. In the last two years they tested and approved them in several competitions.
I’m really looking forward to see Maximilian Levy again in a thrilling battle against Chris Hoy.
In April Maximilian Levy reached the 2nd place in the Keirin Finals just centimeters after Chris Hoy at the UCI Track World Championships in Melbourne.

Good Luck!

Sebastian

Hej,
hope you are doing well, just want to drop some lines for you to keep you up to date.
The small celebration raffle for AURORAs 1000th facebook like was a success and I found 3 lucky winners. Thanks for all who joined the raffle.

Today and yesterday I visited The Good Will Out sneaker store in cologne, it’s probably the best in Germany. It was kind of a camp out for the Asics Gel Lyte III x WOEI “Cervidae”. Pretty awesome sneaker. Really nice craftmanship and detailing on this one. Check these pictures on SneakerBobs Blog.
I met some really nice people around the store and besides some rain and stuff, it was great.
One of them also got a small label, it’s called Starship Clothing, check it out!

Another thing I would like to share with you are my plans to visit Paris for some days around the 07. july to 11. july. I’m meeting up with Joey Dodd from Australia, you might know him from one of my favorite shirts: AURORA “The Chase” black / “The Chase” white.
Really curious about this awesome city and of course about meeting him. If you are from Paris maybe drop a line and maybe we can meet up aswell for a ride or a beer.

After this I really would like to make short trip to London. Never been there, but really want to take the chance and get there in july/august. So if you are from London and have some space to sleep for 3-4 days, it would be really awesome.

Kind of a pretty personal posting this time, but I hope you don’t mind. There are news on new gear aswell. The cut&sew Zippers and Pants are arriving in the next days and also the new 5 Panel Colorway is in production. I hope to release these pieces along with some more stuff around August/September.
Besides this, i’m prototyping on a large Messenger Bag and also a new Velcro Strap version – the V3.
Not sure when these products will be released, but you will notice. Promised!

Thanks a lot for your time.

Sebastian

AURORA for good people.

Hide in the urban jungle – AURORA Compact Messenger Bag – Camo Edition

AURORA Compact Messenger Bag Camouflage
Here we go again.
Why not putting up another version of our Compact Messenger Bag, the Black Version received a lot positive feedback so far. So here is the AURORA Compact Messenger Bag “Flecktarn” (“Spotted Camouflage”) version which will help you to survive and hide in the urban jungle.
I’m still really proud of this product, because it took a lot time and effort to develop the construction, pattern and features of the bag. It features the best insights I discovered while using several bags the last years.
Perfect for everyday use, commuting, short trips and also for carrying larger and bulky goods. It is really tough and versatile, but it’s still a compact Bag.
Besides your daily essentials it takes your DIN A4 writing pad, iPad and also a Macbook (Air 11″/13″ or Pro 13″).
AURORA Compact Messenger Bag Camouflage
To make it something special and stand out from the crowd, i’ve added a lot features you just rarely find on other bags. The Strap System on the flap is pretty unique and very useful. With the included Straps you can securely fasten Bike Polo Mallets, a Mailing Tube, Golf Clubs, a sleeping bag, your wet bike gear after a shower and much more. If you need some more space you can also lengthen the snap buckles on the flap with the additional Straps and put some larger stuff in.

AURORA Compact Messenger Bag

AURORA Compact Messenger Bag
Hej,
as mentioned some days ago, i’m happy to finally introduce the AURORA Compact Messenger Bag to you.
I’m really proud of this release, because it took a lot time and effort to develop the construction, pattern and features of the bag. After years of using/owning several messenger bags/backpacks, researching and 1,5 years testing the first prototype, I had many ideas and saw a lot problems to face. I think I solved most of them really good and i’m really happy with this one.
For me it is perfect for everyday use, commuting, short trips and also for carrying larger and bulky goods. It is really tough and versatile, but it’s still a compact Bag.
Besides your daily essentials it takes your DIN A4 writing pad, iPad and also a Macbook (Air 11″/13″ or Pro 13″).
