Alpkit Brukit - Stove

Apr 212019

We are all familiar with the fantastic Jetboil mini stove and its world reliability. Say hello to the challenger the Alpkit Brukit, sporting all the features of the Jetboil at a fraction of the cost..


Available for £45.00 from Alpkit


Ditch the flask of stewed tea and make a fresh brew on the trail. Or go further with hot soup or nutritious one-pot wonder. When you’ve got a checkpoint to make, painstakingly assembling your cooking system isn’t always an option.

Brukit was built on the basis that sometimes you just really need to boil water or make food quickly. It’s efficient, fast, and simple.

An integrated system for fast boil times. A built-in heat exchanger and windshield minimises heat loss so your fuel goes that bit further.

All the Brukit’s bits can be stored inside its own pot, including a 100 g canister, so you have minimal components to juggle. The built-in Piezo ignitor makes lighting the Brukit faff-free; detachable rubberized handles and a neoprene cosy can be left on during cooking for easy handling. The included pan support makes the Brukit compatible with other pans too. Gas canister not included.

Heat it and eat it: it’s that simple!

Mar 112019

7" Navi X720   - Vendors Website

Big display, rugged body
WiFi, Internet and multimedia
The X720 is a universal navi for real adventure riding and travelling. It is a combination of a navigation (with route planning directly on the map while riding) and communication device / tablet (diary, draw notes, check and upload photos). Moreover, using the integrated WiFi you can connect to the internet and browse the web for important information (weather, trip planning etc) or check the e-mail.

Of course you can also install any "street navigation" (iGo, TomTom, etc.) into this device and use them simultaneously - you can choose which navi to use at the start.

This device is suitable for RoadBook (e-RoadBook) with TripMaster for rally races. You don't need any other device - the screen is like an A5 roadbook and you can control the road-book and trip-master from your handlebars using RemoteJOY









Main features

displays two maps on one screen with info panels
fast dual-core processor 2.1GHz
WiFi and Internet (web browser) for your connection with the 'world'

It is no problem to have two maps on this huge display area (big overview and small detail) together with 3 big info panels. It is also an ideal size for e-Roadbook (1cm bigger than standard A5 paper roadbook).

The MicroReflective technology is based on a special layer which reflects a part of the sun light so when the sun is shining directly on your display - you can still read it.

Internet, WiFi, Multimedia (texts, photos, movies, music)
This device is not just about navigation, on a real adventure trip around the world you will appreciate its ability to work as a diary (you can connect an external keyboard), let the locals draw the right way on the display, check the photos or movies from your camera.

Connection to the internet using WiFi allows you to send photos or the diary directly from the trip, check the e-mail or plan the next part of the trip (info, weather forecast) etc.

Rugged body and holder on silent-blocks
The body is custom made for tough conditions. All parts are water-proof and dust-proof (connectors, repro, buttons).

The aluminium holder is surrounds the entire body so it is well protected. The navi is fixed with two rubber bands - still flexible but fixed in the right position. The electronics inside the device are protected against vibrations using two plates (base plate and holder) with four rubber silent-blocks.
