The FIRST RELIC RECOVERY season is definitely in full swing now! We're starting to see teaser videos from teams claiming full ciphers in a minute and change, and we know those times are only going to go down as the season progresses.  This game is going to be a ton of fun to watch for sure.
New 5mm Hex Bore Nubs

You know us, we like to play nice with everybody in FIRST Tech Challenge.  With REV's 5mm hex ecosystem becoming a little more common, we started with Stealth Wheels earlier in the year.  Now, we're adding Nubs!

These Nubs will allow you to drive anything with the familiar 16mm hole spacing using a 5mm hex shaft.  Whether it's gears, sprockets, compliant wheels, or something else, we've got you covered now.

5mm Hex Bore Nubs are available in single-boss and double-boss versions to suit your application, and they're in stock now.
Black Soft Tiles Available For Practice

Y'all really love to practice!  Demand for the gray Soft Tiles used on competition fields has outstripped the supply nationwide, and more will be arriving late this month.

In the meantime, we have secured a supply of black Soft Tiles.  These are not legal for official FIRST Tech Challenge tournaments, but they are suitable for practice fields in your shop. They are available in packs of 36, enough for a full field.

Protip: For best results with sensing tape lines, you should be calibrating your robot on each new field anyway.  Sensor readings will obviously be different with these darker tiles, but ambient lighting conditions and wear on tiles will also affect these readings.
