I bought these snowboarding pants for my girlfriend and so far, so good. She loves the length and baggieness (not too much, but enough) that allows her to ride with no restrictions. They're Burton, so they fit right.

Have to ever wanted the high-end carbon layup but with the work horse GX Eagle group-set? This bike is unique because it combines these two features.

I'm 6'0" and went with a large, the fit is just about perfect for me. The SB5.5 was my first Yeti and it will certainly not be my last. The bike has a suppleness when climbing that is hard to explain. The only way I can think of describing it is that the rear wheel seems to find contact with the back side of bumps and maintains contact with ground. This allows for amazing rear wheel traction when things get loose/chunky. I almost always climb with the DPX2 shock wide open because I feel the bike doesn't need a pedal platform in the shock to stay supportive.

Once the bike is pointed downhill things get pretty exciting - The switch infinity likes to be run pretty deep in it's travel. I set mine up with almost 40% sag. The amazing part of this is that I use all the travel regularly but there is absolutely ZERO feeling of the bike bottoming out.

I ride this bike everywhere from casual lunch laps to testing myself on Enduro stages. Overall this bikes make me want to ride more... it's that good!

Picky Bars Oatmeal has been a huge game changer for me. Created by professional athletes for athletes, this oatmeal is packed with protein and is gluten-free, organic, and vegan. You won't find any weird sh*t lurking in this oatmeal — just wholesome ingredients like rolled oats, dates, chia seeds, almond, and cacao powder. The best part is this oatmeal keeps me full till lunch, it's delicious, and take fewer than 60 seconds to prepare.

I bought the Ruby liner for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves them. Her opinion: these liners are well thought out with lots of elements to support a comfortable day riding; low profile waistband, non-rubberized leg cuffs, soft fabric, and a comfortable chamois that doesn't feel like a diaper. Worn under a set of baggies for the long day out in the saddle, the Ruby Liner is comfortable and required no fidgeting or ‘breaking in’, as sometimes a new set of liners may need. Fit is true to size. These are my new faves!

I didn't realize how much the wind affected my vision until I got these sunglasses. They block almost all the wind while still having enough ventilation to not fog up. I like how high the center section is. It stays out of your vision really well when you are head down and looking out the top of the lens. Also, they look rad!

I have owned Shimano DX's, AM 45, MT200's, and now the ME7's. The fit on these is on point. Great heal cup retention, roomy toe box, and a snug forefoot when you ratchet it down. The sole is nice and stiff and the cleat is recessed enough to not smack the ground when walking around. This also means that they have great lateral contact points with my HT T1 pedals.
