STICKY!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are a lot better than the stock grips my bike came with. I have larger hands and my stock grips were too thin. These feel like they have a little more girth to them. They also have a bit more squish and are a lot stickier than my old grips. Easy installation. And the anodized blue gives some bling. Gotta love the anodized colors that have been on mt. bike parts since the early 90's. ;)

Woosh!

I like this water bottle. It has a nice little valve that doesn't leak even when open. You have to suck on it or squirt it for the water to come out. Has a nice WOOSH of water flow into your thirsty face when you squeeze it. No plastic taste either. Only downside to these type of bottles it the nozzle can fill up with dirt.

Pretty Dang Awesome!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got these for my sons bike. He is riding an older Specialized that my wife used to ride. He was feeling kinda bummed that his dad and Uncle had "cooler" bikes with "cooler" pedals and his feet were slipping off the 90's era pedals that came stock on the bike. Now he has plenty of grip and is having a blast! Super light, durable and tons of traction pins. Only thing I would say I don't love about them is they don't have any concave to them. But still awesome and a decent price too.

I like these shorts a whole bunch. They are nice and stretchy so I am not restricted from doing enduro moves on my bike and dance moves off the bike. They have some nice ventilation on the thighs for when things heat up. They have two nice pockets with zippers so your keys don't fall out on the trail. I do wish they had a side or cargo pocket or maybe a rear butt pocket for carrying a bit more goodies off the trail but I still give these a 5 star rating.

I ordered these thinking they were the same inseam as my Fox Ranger 12 inch. They are at least 2-3 inches longer and hang over my knee when trying to pedal. Although they stretch nice it pulls a bit while pedaling. For a day of riding chairlifts these would work great but not for long climbs and trail riding. Also the material is very heavy and thick. I could see these getting pretty hot creating some extreme swass. The pockets are also pretty much useless. The back pockets are too shallow to fit a basic wallet. And the hand pockets up front are shallow with no zippers allowing your stuff to scatter along the trail. The side cargo pockets are closed by two small velcro closures which may or may not open up while riding but I wouldn't trust my car keys in them. Construction seems quality though. Just not for me.

Perfect Helmet For The Kids
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been taking my kids to the bike park and trail riding more and they are getting more aggressive. My 7 year old took a bad fall to the face and I decided he needed a full face. This helmet is super light and not too hot. I got the small and it fits my 7 year old and 4 year old sons.

A little small.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These pads work great. Slim fitting enough to go under a long or 2/4 length jersey. I bought an XL and they are just a little snug on my arms. They have seemed to stretch out just a bit though. Also the area of protection seems small. It could be a bit wider and longer as far as the actual padded area goes.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I am 6'3" and have bigger legs and arms. I am noticing that most XL and even XXL elbow pads only go up to about a 14 inch bicep with the biggest being around 16 inch max. I thought these would stretch and they did but not enough. No I don't lift bro, but these were too tight. Also they will only protect you from scraping your skin. They are super thin so if you slam hard plan on feeling some pain. I know there are a lot of guys out there with with big legs and arms riding bikes. I feel like XL and XXL pads should fit like an XL and XXL. I had to send these back. I will probably order the 661 rage pads and if they are too tight I will have to cut the stretchy backing and just use the velcro straps. I guess its time to start a pad company for dudes with more than skin and bones on their arms and legs. All current pads are made for roadies.
