Mandatory Gear in any Mountain Bike Pack

There are certain things that you must carry in your backpack every time you leave the trail head. PowerLinks are one of them; just like water, a rain shell, a pump, an extra tube, and a multi-tool.

Unless you like getting stranded, throw one in now and forget about it until it ends up saving you an epic hike out.
