Squamish BC is famous for its Loam. It's also home to LoamLab, a niche MTB components brand that started life with a single product to solve a problem. That problem was a broken 5th metacarpal hand bone caused by clipping a tree at speed. The Counterpunch was born, a cleverly designed bar-end that provides built-in impact protection for your 5th digit, and some lock-on grips soon followed showcasing more out-of-the-box thinking. It's still early days for LoamLab but we get excited whenever there is talk of a new product.
