Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
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.

I wore these all winter and didn't have any issues with my feet getting wet! Really warm, especially for how light they are. Probably less than half the weight of my old Sorel's, with better traction.

Definitely go up a half size when ordering, they are tight fitting, which helps for athletic activities in the boots but could also restrict blood flow a bit. That being said, a half size up should be perfect!

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!

I'm not sure on the weight, but I do own the jacket and love it. It's not a super light packable jacket, but it is pretty waterproof and keeps you warm. It's pretty durable for riding in as well, I think it would be really hard to rip, and it's nice to not have the hood since it's designed for riding in anyway.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't see why not. Check on contour.com in the forums, someone from the company will answer your question quickly, if there isn't already an answer!

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!!

Good pack
5 5

I like this pack, it's well designed, simple, holds the basics and is bulletproof. I've been using this pack all season and it's still in great shape, it's very well built. It's just big enough to hold your water, food, a couple tools and a jacket, and then you can strap your helmet and pads to the outside if you are climbing something first. I choose this pack a lot of the time because if I have a bigger one I am likely to fill it up, and then I'll have a bigger heavier pack than I would like.

I love this brace, I honestly feel like it has saved me from serious neck injuries. I think in the next few years it will just be a standard piece of equipment people wear when they go riding just like kneepads are now. It is really comfortable and customizable so you can fit it to your body, and only takes one ride to get used to it. After that you don't even think twice about having it on, and you actually start to feel vulnerable to neck injury without it. The price isn't even a factor either when you compare it to the thought of a serious neck injury or paralysis, for me it's no question. If I need a full face helmet to hit something, then I also need a Leatt brace.
