Another $3,000 slated for Kijabe this year thanks to Hell's Gate Grips

The Hell's Gate Grips just keep on giving. Trail One Components is excited to send another $3,000 this year to help build and maintain the fantastic singletrack trail network in Kijabe, Kenya. 

This gift was made possible from the proceeds of our Hell's Gate Grips. We set aside $1 for every Trail One product and periodically donate the funds to deserving trail networks.

This $3,000 pledge will bring our total Kijabe donations to $8,000 since 2022.

Trail One and the Kijabe Forest Trust have helped fund two full-time trail workers, James and Essau (aka Biggie), who are hard at work creating a world-class trail network. Kijabe hosted it's annual enduro event on March 9th & 10th.

Kijabe sits on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, on an incline that covers 2,500 vertical feet from top to bottom and includes several different types of terrain over 50,000 acres of MTB paradise. Kijabe Mountain Biking has developed more than 70 trails in the area, and the trails are open to riders of all skill levels.

Trail One co-founder Brian Kennedy visited Kijabe in December of 2017 and had a blast with the locals. The classic BKXC video "The Mountain Bike Safari" is where Brian first rode Hell's Gate National Park and realized Hell's Gate was a perfect name for Trail One's first set of grips.
