While we may still be in 2012, it is the time of year when most (if not all) gear manufacturers release their newest lines of racewear to the general public. Particular colorways and styles have trickled out on the professional racers and in magazine photos, but some new ideas are kept somewhat under wraps until the time is right. Rather than let their creations leak out in a simple press release, One Industries rented K1 Speed in Carlsbad and opened the doors to the media for a proper introduction. Who could say no to free go-karts, lunch, and gear?

The latest trend in motocross gear is thin, minimalistic apparel. Gloves with little-to-no padding, jerseys with sublimated graphics and logos, and even boots designed to vent more and weigh less than the conventional offerings. Lost in the weight shavings spree are pants, still clad in bulky TPR patches and heavy stretch panels. Until now, that is. The elite brands have begun to re-tool their pants by doing away with massive rubber areas, but none have gone to the lengths of One Industries and their “Vapor” line. First seen on Jason Anderson at the San Diego Supercross, the pants are created from a boardshort material, feature Velcro closures and adjustments, and weigh in at less than one pound. The patent-pending design is One’s signature product for 2013, aimed at dedicated racers searching for any advantage on the track.

One also displayed the rest of their 2013 collection, including the Defcon line, the Gamma helmet, and new casual clothing, which is a hit around the TW offices. Check our photos from the day and head to to see the rest of what the San Diego crew has in store.

7890459074 63be2140af Famous World Cup goalkeeper visits K1 Speed
Jorge Campos, pictured here with Patricio Jourdain at K1 Speed Carlsbad, was one of the most notable Mexican players of the 1990s. Campos was a particularly eccentric player, known for his constant play outside the penalty area, his acrobatic style in goal, and his attire. His strength in goal was his leaping ability and speed, which made him able to overcome his relatively low height of 1.68 m (5 ft 6 in).

Born in Acapulco, Mexico, Campos also made for an effective striker, an example of rare versatility in football. At times, he would start a game in goal, and transfer upfield later in the match, mostly at the club level. His trademark, self-designed bright kits contributed to his popularity.

On the international stage, Campos started for Mexico in the 1994 and 1998 World Cups as the first choice goalkeeper, and went on to collect 130 caps for his country.

At the 1999 New Year’s Cup in Hong Kong, in which Mexico was invited as well as Egypt and Bulgaria, Campos’ father was kidnapped back home and Campos returned to Mexico to attend to the matter. Campos was invited several times to play with the Rest of the World Team against clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Milan.

His last game with Mexico was in 2004 when they played a friendly against Tecos.
