I always have issues with troy lee stuff for sizing. 32 in the moto shorts is good but for these I went with a 34. The 32 fit but were a little on the tight side for my liking. They were not as thick as the moto shorts but will get the job done. They are well articulated though and provide enough room in the knees to have pads on without any issues.

I love how thick these shorts are. They hold up well should you lay the bike down or clip a few branches here and there. I have serious issue with sizing for Troy Lee stuff and these shorts are the only ones that seem to fit how I like them to. I doubt you'd want these for anything other than resort or shuttling but maybe a day or two when it's on the colder side. FYI the black shorts in the pic are last years. The pockets on them now have welded zips like the other shorts pictured which is a nicer touch and easier to use.

I'm not overly impressed with the jacket but it does not disappoint either. It's adequate and honestly I like the camo print. Here are my two gripes. 1: Its got a left zipper....and 2: I wish it had the cinch strings on both sides of the jacket instead of just the left. When you cinch is the jacket then pulls towards that side a little bit. Both not deal breakers but again not perfect. I got this to bike in the rain and it will handle that with no problems.

Picked this up for a recent trip to Moab and very stoked on it. Previously I'd just had all my stuff in random bins, sort of organized but a pain when what I needed was in the bottom of the bin. This has solved that problem. Easier to transport, well made, and thought out. I like that you remove the lower part of the legs and place it on a table or tailgate if you don't need it to be as high off the ground. The divider section on the inside is also zippered so you could you use larger storage if you don't want to use the compartments that they provide. I wish it was just a touch bigger otherwise it'd be 5 stars. Maybe in the future two sizes will be available.

Not sure why the unsavory reviews on this product. It's made extremely well from high quality materials. If you want a headset that you don't have to fuss with and can service the bearings this one is great. There's a reason you see them on so many bikes out there.

I get this shirt every year. The large is a great fit. I do wish the opening on the sleeves for your hands was just a bit bigger. Have to unbutton then button again when taking on or off. Also keep it out of the dryer. I've found that the material pills up when dried. Just let it air dry which doesn't take that long due to the material and it will stay looking fresh for a long time.

This board rides great right out of the box. Wheels are smooth and spin forever. I don't bomb hills personally so I cant comment on how it rides for that but its amazing for sidewalk surfing and mellow coasting. Mine came with silver trucks and black wheels. The Walnut deck is super nice looking. Ive also rode the bamboo version which has a little more spring in it if that's your thing. Pretty sure you wont be bummed on either one so pick the one you like the look of better.

I picked this up for my girlfriend( I ride the DOA and this is the woman's version of it) Shes 5'6 and got the 150. It's stiffer than her last board which makes for predictability in chop and great at high speeds. A little stiff for her when buttering but that's not what she wanted the board for and if you're going that route just size down. She loves how the ride carves and is not hooky like traditional cambered boards can be.

I love this board so much I got it in two sizes, one for park/groomers and one for chunder and pow. Very predictable when turning and just the right flex to hold an edge at speed but still able to butter and press when you want to play around. For the $$ this board is pretty hard to beat.

The Prizm series lenses are pretty amazing. The contrast they provide lets you see every bump or change int eh terrain. Ive got the Jade and the Rose lenses myself and use the jade for sunny to party cloudy and the rose for overcast and nosy days. As with Oakley stuff they are excellent at keeping the fogging down as well.

They come with 2 sets of lenses and the second set is great for biking in shaded forests or around dusk. I feel like they buy me another 15-30 minutes of daylight compared to riding with no glasses at all. Fit is good but that's personal preference from the reviews. They stay put on your face as well while being active.

Ive used these for about a week now and don't have any complaints. The sound is what you'd expect from this model (price point) of headphones, not going to blow you away but doesn't disappoint either. The range at least in my house is about 20 ft and that's going through two walls so results may vary. The ear pieces that came stock appear to be identical to what comes on most of the skull candy earbuds, so if they fit you chances are these will as well. Pretty light weight as well and they have not fallen out of my ears yet.
