Sea Level to South Pole by Bike (2020/21)

McMurdo South Pole highway We are supporting bike adventurer Damian Drobyk in a ground breaking attempt on the longest unsupported cycle ride to the South Pole. The route starts at sea level at the famous McMurdo Antarctic research station in the summer of 2020/21 and will take around 30 days to cross the Ross Ice Shelf, and up to the South Pole 1000km away, at 3000m altitude. With temperatures down to -30oC (-22oF) Damian will be relying on his KOVEA gear to keep him fed, hydrated and motivated all the way to the most remote spot on the planet.

The expedition will highlight the role of bicycles in reducing carbon dioxide emission, as well as highlighting the imminent threat of rising sea level if we, collectively, fail to reduce emissions as a matter of urgency.

Mark Hines  Dr. Mark Hines: 1000 mile Iditarod Trail Invitational

The 1000-mile (1600-km) Iditarod Trail Invitational held in March 2020 is one of the toughest extreme cold races in the world.  As the trail is mainly beneath fresh snow, the going can be difficult and it is easy to get lost in deep snowdrifts and soft powder.  In some areas wind speeds can be over 100 mph, with relative temperatures below -100F (-75C).  On the sea ice over Norton Sound on the Bering Sea, open water becomes a real hazard.   On March 1st 2020, Mark started the race together with 7 other foot racers, plus 17 cyclists, aiming to sled-haul from Anchorage to Nome.

Mark will be using the reliable and well tested KOVEA Booster+1 expedition stove for snow melting in the most extreme temperatures and conditions.

Dr. Hines is a highly respected arctic ultra-marathon runner, writer and physiologist. His academic research into physiology in extreme environments underpins his unique approach to efficient long distance travel on foot.  For further details about his work, writing and adventures, visit: www.drmarkhines.com,   FaceBook page, Twitter feed & YouTube channel.

Slowriders in Botswana with KOVEA Booster+1

Corinne & Oliver Beccarelli are "The Slow Riders" undertaking the ultimate overland expedition from Switzerland to South Africa and back. Their chosen vehicle is the virtually indestructable Ural Sportsman motorbike and side car which has so far survived thousands of miles of rough roads. Their stove is equally indestructable KOVEA Booster+1 expedition stove which they are running on petrol/gasoline which they pick up on the road. Some of the available fuel is of low quality, but with regular maintenance their Booster+1 keeps on delivering morning coffee and dinner in idyllic places along the way.

Mt Blackburn Kite Surfing Expedition, Alaska   

Flying Over Base CampKOVEA and MercatorGear supported the innovative and daring German expedition to make the first ever kite-assisted attempt on America's 5th highest mountain, the remote 4,996m Mt Blackburn, Alaska. Temperatures at the glacier base camp were regularly below minus 20oC (-4oF), and the team relied on the KOVEA Booster+1 expedition stoves to melt snow for every drop of water required over the three week period.

At high altitude camps where conditions were more extreme, the guys also used KOVEA Alpine Pot Wide for rapid water boiling and the KOVEA Spider for light weight, low temperature / high altitude usage.

  All our camping gas stoves and lanterns are strictly regulated under the European Gas Appliances Directive (GAD) as incorporated into domestic laws. The GAD specifies that gas appliances must be tested according to safety standards defined by a European technical standard “CEN EN 521: 2006 Specifications for dedicated liquefied petroleum gas appliances - Portable vapour pressure liquefied petroleum gas appliances”.

KOVEA engineers work hard to design products which exceed these strict European safety standards by a significant margin.
