Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Diamondback really nailed it with this bike. At 30 lbs it climbs like a champ, especially in climb mode on the shock, but it really shines on the way down. This bike is very confidence inspiring, always begging you to take the more gnarly line down. It's also very playful, easy to pop up into a manual down the trail or over roots and rocks. Really fun to blast off of rocks and roots using them like a jump as well. The spec is hard to beat on this bike, so you won't have to swap anything. I absolutely love this bike, I'll be riding it all summer on everything from XC trails to full on bikeparks and DH trails. Also check out what Pinkbike had to say about the bike -

I really can't believe this bike comes spec'd as well as it does at this price, Fox suspension front and back, Race Face narrow wide chainring, Crank Brothers dropper post, and still the same frame as the Pro build!!!

Fit: True to size

I really like these running shoes, there are a lot of cool features built in to make it better. My favorite one is the pods on either side of the arch; I have bad ankles and these help prevent me from rolling my ankles while running. I also like the round heel which gives a better angle when your heel hits the ground. Really good traction too for scrambling up rocks and stuff.

These sandals are super comfy, look great, and seem to last a long time. I've been running them for a year now with minimal signs of wear, and no problems! I wear size 11.5 shoes, and got size 12 since there are no half sizes. They fit perfect.

One of my favorite tires for the last few years. Very versatile, works great in a lot of situations, wears well, rolls pretty fast, and is all around pretty predictable. I recommend the 2.35 size with DTC for pretty much everyone, a wider tire will be more fun to ride, plus the DTC gives you much better cornering with the stick-e rubber on the side knobs and still rolling fast with the harder compound in the center.

Great helmet
5 5

I got this for my son, who was close to a year old at the time. He grew to love the helmet quickly, it seems to fit him comfortably and he doesn't try to take it off. He's 18 months old now and it still fits him, with room to grow, so it's nice that it will last a while even with how fast he's growing!

These are my new favorite shorts for trail rides. Compared to a lot of the other Sombrio shorts I've had, these are a little slimmer fitting, and a little bit shorter length. They feel light and comfy like you are wearing a board short, but more technical with build in vents and stuff. They are definitely thinner material than most Sombrio shorts from the last few years, but for trail rides that is a good thing. The zippers also work nice and don't seem to want to catch on anything, and the fly/waistband attachment is velcro with snap buttons and is simple and won't pop open. Really happy with these shorts!

Really comfortable jersey, I use it riding xc, dh, and moto. I often find myself running it with the sleeves pushed up my arms when it's warm, and the cuffs haven't stretched out which is nice. Looks pretty good too. I posted a link to a photo below. They also make matching pants if you wanna go for the factory race look or for riding moto!

Like it says above in the bottom line, you won't know how you lived without this pump. I don't leave home without it on a ride. It's super light and compact but it's basically a floor pump when it comes to inflating your tires. Don't even think twice, buy this pump. I paid full retail for it would would happily do it again if I ever lost it, it's that good. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!!
