George Pointon's Bio

I was born in Hawaii and primarily grew up in San Diego during the booming skateboard era. I've skated with Tony Hawk, jumped out of airplanes, swam with sharks, and taught hundreds of people how to snowboard at some of the best resorts in the country. When I'm not seeking an adrenaline rush I like to immerse myself in a great book, meditate over a strategic game of Go, or play some relaxing riffs on the guitar.

These things saved my riding. I was getting terrible blisters on my stock grips and switched to these things hoping they would aid. After riding with these grips I haven't got anything even close to a blister. Superb grip and shock dampening. Also with the flashy colors you can get a pretty sweet look going if you're into that. For how much they cost, it's at least worth a try if you're looking to give another grip a shot.

Insane value for the price. Comes with a pressure gauge, great locking mechanism, and smart design. Can't speak for other types of tires but for any mountain bike rider this is really all you need to make adjustments. Yes like other reviewers have said you probably have to do more pumps to get the same amount of air out as other pumps but honestly it's not even close to being a big deal.

This is the perfect item for any dog owner looking to not chokeout their pup. I have a dog who loves to send it and this is a great harness to keep the lil dude under control when excited before our trail runs or mountain bike adventures. It's also a great harness for taking a chill walk. I've tried about 5 different harness's with my dog, most of which were more expensive, and this one is a clear winner. Minimalist design gives support where needed and gets the heck out of the way where it's not. No pit rub or other issues. Thing is also build like a tank to last a lifetime. Again can not emphasize how great this harness is. I would only caution you to really make sure you get the sizing right first before ordering.

I would stay away from these things like the plague if you have a remotely wider foot. The fit is long and narrow. Can't really say more since I couldn't test them out due to fit issues (bought both 11 and 10.5, neither worked).

I was pretty terrified of throwing my brand new uber expensive bike on this thing at first. Especially since this rack is a the same price of a lot of other bike racks that hold two bikes while this holds three. I kept wondering what the catch is. After driving all over SLC with this thing I must say that I'm very pleased and rather impressed. My only gripe is that the part of the frame that inserts into the hitch doesn't sit flush. It would be a bit more comforting to have the hitch insert fully push in when bolted instead of having about an inch of hang. I'm sure it's still structurally sound but it is something that is always in the back of our minds now. I would also recommend grabbing the locking system available (make sure to select the 3 person one).

Awesome shorts! So awesome that I ended up buying another pair after my first. they are great for riding or everyday use. I actually plan to replace most of my shorts with different pairs of these due to how much I like them. They are a bit stretchy, very lightweight, and durable.

This lid gets the triple S review score. It is extremely comfortable fitting with adjustments available if needed. Great lock design that holds the helmet snug even in the most extreme downhill conditions. Took a pretty hard slam the other day and had no noticeable complaints from the helmet in an impact scenario. It also helps that the color variants are pretty stylish. You also get mips protection for a fraction of the price of a smith forefront for example. Great helmet at a great price.

These shoes are great for hiking (lightweight/solid sole/good toe protection). However they would be pretty average at best if it wasn't for the great water drainage and dry system. I take these things out whenever I take my dog with me. Fear not if there is a river they want to traverse. Just jump right in with these guys and you will go from fully wet to dry in minutes. If you are looking for a hiking shoe that can also handle wet terrain give these a shot!

I recently got super into MTB. I realized pretty quickly that I needed a pack to hold valuables and keep me hydrated over longer rides. I tried 6 different packs from several brands and ended up going with the osprey for a few reasons. First the Air Back system does a great job of keeping you cool during the rides by providing great airflow. Second, the pack has just the right amount of space and pocket design to hold exactly what you would need out on the trail (snacks/phone/parktool). Also has the added benefit of being able to hold downhill knee pads so you don't have to pedal with them on the ride up. Lastly, the magnetic bite valve holder secures the hydration tube to your chest so it's not bouncing all around during the ride. Fantastic pack for the money!
