It’s Twins for Trail Genius!


We  just delivered a pair of identical, custom-painted, IGH, Belt-drive Northpaw goodness to Jason and Chris at Trail Genius. The builds were identical except for the frame size:

  • Schlick Northpaw Frame/Fork with Paragon Sliding Dropouts
  • Alfine 8 IGH
  • Hope FatSno 135mm Front Hub
  • Gates CarbonDrive Belt System
  • Marge Lite Rims
  • Thomson Seatpost, Stem and Seat Collar
  • Avid BB7 Brakes
  • 45NRTH Husker Du Tires
  • Miscellaneous other goodies.

If you are not familiar with Trail Genius, here is a bit about what they do.

Trail Documentation
The Genius Crew shows up onsite and rides the trail system while capturing video and gps data.

Map Creation
Trail Genius creates a custom printable electronic map file with embedded trial profiles, stats, legend, and header with graphics.

Video/GPS Sync & Encoding
Trail Genius does all post processing required for interface integration. This includes: file in/out point cleanup, video encoding, GPS data file formatting, video/GPS synchronizing, and map interface linking.

Interactive Online Map Interface
This is the creation of the interactive map using the actual trails of the system. The trails will become hyperlinks to display stats and other trail information. Clicking a trail will activate the dashboard which plays the trail video, elevation profile, and global location.

Look for the twin Northpaws lurking and working on a trail near you!
