How to Choose a Bike

Sold as a frame or a complete bike, a bicycle is much more than a tool to get you from A to B. It’s an investment in your good health. It’s a means of exploration and an instrument of freedom. A custom bicycle can even be an expression of who you are. How you use your bicycle is entirely up to you. The real magic of a bicycle, however, is that it makes the destination less important than the journey itself.

Mountain Bikes
Mountain bikes are a heavier and designed to tackle more rugged terrain. The first mountain bikes were just repurposed cruiser bikes, but these days, mountain bikes are designed for very specific purposes. Divided into XC, downhill, freeride, and all-mountain, there’s a bike for every type of dirt worshipper. Shop Mountain Bikes

Road Bikes
From race-day rockets to commuters with fenders and lights, road bikes are designed for use on the road. A steel townie or a touring bike isn’t going to win any races, but a high-tech carbon fiber or titanium race bike may be overkill for the casual commuter. Skinny wheels and tires make these bikes faster and more aerodynamic than mountain bikes. Shop Road Bikes
Cyclocross
Cyclocross bikes are designed to provide maximum pedaling efficiency when the terrain varies between light singletrack, doubletrack fire roads, and pavement. Aside from the obvious differences in tires and brakes, cyclocross bikes use a less aggressive geometry than their road cousins for greater stability off road. Cyclecross Bikes

How to Buy an Alpine Touring Ski

Skin to the Summit & Shred the Stash

You’ve decided to leave the crowds at the resort and hit the skin track. An alpine touring ski balances easy handling, floatation, and weight to give you the most versatile platform for earning your turns on the way up and shredding trees, powder, and chutes all the way down. An AT ski is a powerful addition to your quiver and due to its ability to handle a variety of conditions and terrain, it might serve as both your resort and backcountry ski.

Weight:

When you’re earning your turns, every ounce counts. An AT ski is usually heavier than a rando or Nordic ski and significantly lighter than a powder or big-mountain freeride ski. Wood or composite materials help shave weight where it counts

Camber & Shape:

Like an all-mountain ski, you can expect a blend of camber underfoot and tip-and-tail rocker or early rise to add a touch of surfy maneuverability for tight terrain.

Other Features:

Tip and tail grommets for skin attachments, a snow-shedding topsheet treatment, or an ultralight core—it’s all about a balance of uphill speed and downhill performance.
