Omar Muhyar's Bio

As a lover of all four seasons, you'll find me enjoying smooth and twisty singletrack when the sun is shining. During the winter, my time is spent spinning countless laps at Brighton, hopefully pillaging pow stashes in the trees.

Used this as a replacement tire for a cheap road bike sitting around the garage. It's really a nice tire for the price and would serve as a great set of training tires, seeing they're a bit heavier than a lot of tires on the market. Nice and grippy with pretty low rolling resistance. Not sure about durability- will have to update as time goes on.

Love these for their insanely flexible feel and highly breathable design. They look pretty cool as well with their colorful tree graphics. I even crashed this week (it was more of a slide out), leaving my knuckles nice and bloody, but these didn't even rip, which is impressive considering how light and thin they are.

Love these things for hiking and running up the steep, rock-infested trails here along the Wasatch Range of Northern Utah. They're insanely grippy and flexible straight from the box- no breaking in needed. I just did some sketchy scrambling up exposed rocks in Ferguson Canyon this past weekend and these performed admirably in gripping to the rock outcroppings without slipping out.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Bought these in medium and ended up returning them, as they were a bit stiffer than I expected. Now, don't get me wrong, they're still easy to pedal in, but I'm just seeking more of a minimalist/XC-style knee pad that's much thinner and even easier to bend. I might have to look for more of a knee sleeve with just a touch of padding, but these would do the trick for all-mountain and enduro riders.

Looks nice and stealthy in the black color and does its job in covering your tubeless valves from flinging rocks and getting bent on the trail. The textured exterior makes it easy to screw on and off, even if it's a bit wet outside. Overall, it's one of those small items for your favorite trail bike that makes a difference in protecting your investment, as well as making it look cool.

It's a solid water bottle holder that looks cool in the blue color I grabbed for my Bronson. The alloy construction makes it heavier than its carbon or plastic competitors, but it's much cheaper. The extra weight isn't a big deal to riders who don't count every last gram. My bottle sits securely and doesn't bounce around, so it does its job admirably.

Love this pack for everyday trail rides and longer outings, due to its 3-liter reservoir and plentiful storage for all your tools, snacks, and extra layers when you're riding in the backcountry. There's even a tool roll, so you can keep your repair essentials handy inside the pack.

It sits low on your back, making it inherently more stable, as it places all the water where your center of gravity lies, as to not disturb your balance while tackling switchbacks and technical rock gardens.

The reservoir has a nifty little button for dislodging the tube without spilling its entire contents, so you can keep the hose routed through the pack and empty the entire reservoir after riding. The only thing I'd change is the hose is a touch too long- it would be perfect if CamelBak trimmed off like 4 inches of hose length.

Absolutely love the Candy 3s. Running them on my Santa Cruz Bronson and they feel really good for the type of trail riding I do here in Northern Utah. Not only that, but they're of much higher quality than the cheaper Candy 1s, meaning they're much more likely to last throughout an entire season of aggressive riding, versus the cheaper Candy 1s, which will certainly blow up after a summer's worth of thrashing 'em on the trail.

Another thing I like with the Candy 3s is the resounding click I hear and feel while clipping in, which gives you a nice tactile sensation that's confidence inspiring before plunging into a technical stretch of trail. The cheaper version of these pedals (e.g. Candy 1) felt much more vague underfoot, as the plastic platform doesn't feel as stable or secure as the aluminum body found on these pedals.

It's hard for me to write a detailed review on these shoes, as the right one wouldn't come unbuckled straight from the box- most likely resulting from someone in the assembly process closing them too tightly. The buckle was jammed up firmly against the rubberized upper portion of the ankle strap, preventing it from coming free while trying to undo the buckle's release mechanism. I had to return the shoes, which sucked because they looked really promising for trail riding here in Utah with their rugged Vibram sole.

This jammed buckle is a major design flaw with Giro mountain bike shoes, as my previous pair of Privateers experienced this same thing, albeit due to my own error of overtightening of the shoes, causing the buckle to jam up against the rubber tab atop the strap. Bottom line is Giro needs to shave down the width of the rubber atop the strap, so the buckle doesn't jam up against it, thereby preventing it from releasing properly.

I've been upgrading my wardrobe for summer, as I barely have any tees or button-ups and this shirt sparked my interest, due to its outdoors iconography in the form of a fun print. One thing to note, Hippy Tree button-ups and wovens run a bit larger than I'm used to. I previously returned a medium, due to it feeling boxier and baggier than I'd like.

For this shirt I purchased a small and it's much better, though it could use a bit of length to be perfect. For this reason I docked one star, seeing Hippy Tree's fit is a bit inconsistent (I wear a medium in their tees) and boxy. Just wish it was a little more tailored, so I could wear a proper medium length.

Love these kicks, but I've only worn them for a few days, meaning I'll have to see how long they last. They're extremely lightweight, meaning you'll barely even notice you're wearing them. Reef's Swellular traction is really good and gives these an edge over other lightweight trainers with EVA outsoles. Feel like they'll remain cool and comfortable when it heats up in summertime, due to the all-mesh uppers. One thing to note, the arch support is really pronounced and takes getting used to if you have flat feet like myself. Otherwise, solid kicks for summertime wear and lounging.

Absolutely love this tee. It's subtle, yet looks really good and feels really good with its super-soft cotton fabric. Like all Burton shirts, it tends to run a bit longer. I ordered a small when I usually rock a medium.

This DWR spray will keep your jacket and pant's face fabric from wetting out, which sucks when it's raining non-stop or snowing like crazy on a powder day. Wetting out doesn't actually get you wet if you're wearing a waterproof jacket, but it will cause the cold and clammy feel, as you're holding onto all that residual moisture. This treatment will bead off moisture brilliantly, thus keeping your gear from soaking up all that water!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using the Techwash for years and was eager to pick up the softshell variant for a newly acquired Black Diamond soft shell, so I bought this duo pack. Techwash is an absolute must if you own Gore-Tex or any other high-end waterproof gear, as it renews the garment's water repellency by washing away all the nasty oil, dirt, and grit that gets pulverized into the face fabric and membrane over time, especially when you're skiing and snowboarding.

Pro tip for using the Techwash: always dry your Gore-Tex on a low tumble setting, just make sure it doesn't get overly hot and start to melt. The heat will not only dry your jacket and snow pants quickly, but it physically reinvigorates the DWR finish, so it keeps repelling water off the face fabric.

Picked this up as a gift for my girlfriend before she went on a hiking trip to Southern California, which has been experiencing their rainy season this past month or so. Have to say, the jacket looks great and seems to bead off water with minimal effort, at least with my sink spray test at home! The hood neatly tucks into the collar if you don't like wearing it and features two different cinch points for securing it in heavy winds. It's rather minimalist in nature, but does an admirable job for being such a lightweight rain/wind shell.

Bought these goggles for a friend's 30th birthday, which we threw up in Grand Targhee, Wyoming. He was riding with really old, haggard goggles, so this pair was a gigantic upgrade. I picked up the Whiteout/Chromapop Everyday/Red Mirror, as it seemed like the best do-it-all option out there, if you're not one to regularly change out lenses. I rode a few laps with the goggles just to get a sense of their visibility, as compared with my standard Vice. Have to say the Chromapop makes a big difference- it's like turning the TV onto 1080p for the first time after looking through Standard Definition lenses! Overall, this Chromapop Everyday is good for mixed sun/clouds through socked-in/stormy conditions. Wouldn't really use them for super-bright, bluebird conditions, but everything else they're really pretty damn excellent.

Other reviewers have complained it's a bit long and although that's true, you can always fold it up to half its size, then slip it over your head to get twice the thickness for extra warmth. The fleece portion is great for cutting the cold breeze on the chairlift and the other portion of this Buff is super breathable, so it's less likely to freeze up in the cold. Overall, I'm satisfied with this thing after using it for the past couple of weeks here in Northern Utah.
