Personally, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't spring for the best when your head is involved. I have several POC protection products but the one I wear every ride is the POC Trabec Race. The XL-XXL fits my head perfectly, it has plenty of venting and allows me to mount a light or my GoPRO to it without complication. If the visor was a little more adjustable it would be 6 stars. Very durable. when I got it only the white and orange were available but I have come to appreciate the colors. I get asked about this helmet on almost every ride.

These gloves are great for protecting the digits. Only issue I have is there is a couple of panels on the outside edge of the hand that are put together with some kind of adhesive that is coming loose on my right hand. Other than that, I would highly recommend!

I got this shirt after seeing a buddy eat it on some rocks and we used everything in my first aid kit to patch up his shoulder. This shirt protects you shoulders an sternum pretty well. I would give it a perfect 5 star rating if it had just a bit of protection for your back/spine. I've worm it in 105 degree humid Missouri wilderness and although the shirt is very tight it's not too hot for the benefit. It's helped me on several occasions that I graze a tree with my shoulder slaloming through wooded single track. It's not going to keep you out of a figure 8 if you pound into something with you collar bone but it helps with the milder hits. I don't do downhill but I can't imagine this is going to do much for you in a 35 mph butt over bars calamity.

I upgraded the stock spring shock on my Rockhopper with this fork and all I can say is that although it was some serious coin, it certainly resulted in putting a huge smile on my face. Downhills are not nearly as brutal and the tracking on a corner is amazing. I cut 5 minutes off my previous best lap at my favorite local trail after putting this fork on my bike. The Terralogics is simply psychic when you pedal. After setting the sag at 100psi and dialing it in, Terralogics is set to about 5 clicks out right now which gives me just the right amount of low speed plush and incredible climbing pedal when you drop the front end from 120 to 95mm of travel. The Kashima coating and black color looks amazing on my bike (Finally a NON-White Fox on my local trail and I own it!). The 15mm axle is super rigid. I can't say enough good things about this fork. Simply fantastic for aggressive XC and All mountain. If you have the coin and the need, buy immediately.

I have 3 or 4 Oakley Jersey's and love them. They are durable, cool in the 100F heat with the mesh sides, long enough so your buds don't have to follow a plumber down the trail and the integrated glasses wipe keeps your specs sweat free. The sizes are pretty true with plenty of room for elbow pads and light xc/mountain armour.

I replaced the stock bars on my Rockhopper with these wide bars. I'm not a tall guy but have pretty broad shoulders and the 540mm wide set just wasn't doing it. Not to mention that with the addition of a Garmin 800 and the Command Post lever for my seat, things were pretty crowded in the cockpt area. These bars cured all issues. I thought I would cut them down a little but like them just the way they are!

I bought these shoes for when I ride the more technical trails and the ability to bail or easily put a foot down gives me a little more confidence than clipless. These shoes plus my Dark cycle Arachnids are such a phenomenal combo that they are almost as good as clipless with the only shortfall being the slight difference in the sole rigidity you get in a clipless shoe. However, I can wear these to and from the trail and not sound like a horse in the process.
