Cody's Bio

Skiing pow, shredding with friends, seeing new places, finding challenges and being outdoors is what gets me out of bed in the morning.

Like the compact size for plenty of tools. Feels like a quality build with good materials. Only complaint would be the stiff rubber band like thing that holds it all together. Once you lose that the tools will be loose and all over the place. Overall though, quality little tool

In the loose Tahoe moondust and sand these tires seem to rip. Quick stopping power and solid grip through the loose stuff. And despite the heavy tread, they still roll uphill quite fast. Upon the first ride I even managed to get some PR's on some uphills. So they ain't too slow. A great tire.

Fit: True to size

Seems like a waste to spend a boat load of cash on shoes when you could save those benjamins for actual bike upgrades, that's why I got these bike kicks and they seem to work great. Stiff enough, light enough, comfortable and hold me in. Essentially they do what they're supposed to do for a great price.

Usually light brings up feelings of weakness. But this hardened aluminum shovel is nails tough and sharp as a knife. When it's in your hand it feels great and feels like it could move a bunch of snow in a hurry. Which is what you want when those precious seconds matter right?

Tested by the SAFE AS clinic girls, this was the fastest assembling probe of the lot. Super easy and snaps to place in an instant. The carbon means it's not adding weight to your pack and stiff enough to penetrate the most hardened of debris fields. Great measuring marks along the side as a bonus and rugged handle as well. Digging it a ton.

I'm just beginning to use the S1 and can't say enough good things about it. It's faster digitally than a slow as mollasses Barryavox, more intuitive that and BCA and modifiable for an expert or simple to use for a complete beginner. Tested it's signal strength with electronics versus the BCA and had more problems with the BCA than the S1, something that I thought would have had the reverse outcome initially. Very impressed with this beacon.

Lightweight yet super strong. Heavy duty sharp blade, extendable and easy to use handle and the bonus saw which although isn't great for digging pits, is immaculate for cutting the occasional tree that needs to be lit for a fire or pushed out the way of our snowmobile pinned against it. Love it.

I've used this skins over and over for years and while they totally make the grade, there is some downsides. Cutting, sizing and applying them to your skis in the field is quicker and easier than any skin I've ever used. They're durable as hell and can grind over rocks, stomps and all sorts of flotsam with no worry about tears or destruction. The downside to these skins is that the glue isn't the best, they're relatively heavy and they don't climb the steeps as well as others. Since I mainly use mine with my Rocker 2 and Guardian set up, the weight doesn't bother me, nor does the loss of grip on super steep skins bother me because I'm not seeking either of those options with my set-up. The only thing that is hard to deal with is the relative weakness of the glue in wet conditions. I find mine start peeling off sooner than others which causes lots of scraping and in the jacket heating. But otherwise, for a durable, quick, simple and easy set up, they are great skins.
