Cranked is a regular magazine, but it certainly isn’t normal.
Since its first issue, Cranked has blazed a path of its own among some otherwise struggling MTB print titles. How? Because Cranked means quality. And its editor, Seb, is all about getting things just right.
The magazine is about getting out there, exploring the world of mountain biking and perfectly capturing the stories of its people, places and events. That might sound like any other magazine, but there are few rivals when it comes to quality and attention to detail.
For the cover price of £13 (including postage to the UK), Cranked is also exceptionally good value. How’s that? Well, when you flick through its heavy pages and marvel at its beautiful photography then dip into its carefully crafted writing, you begin to realise just how much time and effort has gone into its every aspect.
If you are all about gravity and sends, Shredder is probably more your thing. If its adventure, insight and trail culture, get Cranked.
We are very proud to now be stockists.
Cranked Issue 20
This is what Seb Rogers, founder and editor of Cranked, has to say about Issue 20.
“Cranked 20 is our ‘pushing boundaries’ issue. Dan Milner heads off to the reclusive kingdom of Bhutan and discovers an almost unknown enduro paradise (but at a price). Meanwhile, Huw Oliver discovers a new way to link up ancient Scottish trails on the west coast, and Ryan Stuart and Ben Haggar brave oceans of ice and unpredictable weather in Greenland. Jo Burt’s got a bee in his bonnet about shotgun etiquette (not what you’re thinking), Cass Gilbert chops up an old steel frame and comes up with something entirely unexpected, editor Seb goes back to school to banish his metalwork demons, Pete Scullion spits his dummy out above a Norwegian fjord and we talk to a whole bunch of riders about their favourite four wheeled companion. It’ll get you thinking. And riding.”
