Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You cant go wrong with these goggles, best mtb goggles I have owned. The optics are great, great peripheral view. Work well on sunny days and overcast. Haven't had them fog up, even on rainy days and days when I am working up a sweat. Will be using these for awhile!

Awesome Shorts
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great shorts with tons of features. The zippered pockets are great, and there is even a pass attachment in one of them. They are a great length, fit well over knee pads and allow movement, and the fabric is water resistant and breathes well on hot days as well.

I love long socks for biking. These are a perfect length that provides some extra shin protection. They are soft and comfy and breathe well. My only minor complaint is that they have pilled a bit. Otherwise awesome socks that match my Yeti Bike!

These are great fitting shorts. The camo is great, and yes the ones you will get will have purple zippers. I was actually pleasantly surprised and loved the contrast between the camo and bright purple. The fit is loose without being too baggy , and the fabric breathes great. Material is a bit thinner than other shorts I have so will have to see how they handle a crash !

Burly Downhill Shorts
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I sprung for some of these after a gnarly hip check crashed left me with a nasty hematoma on my hip. The hip pads on these have helped me out on a couple crashes since then and overall the shorts are great. The fit is good, great length just over the top of the knee pads, while still maintaining a nice fit. the material in the seat is great. Only downfall is they can be a bit hot on warm days, but it is something you sacrifice for a bit more protection. The colors are also awesome I have blue camo print from last year and now the mellow yellow as well.

I just put this saddle on my free ride bike and its been great thus far. I don't do a ton of climbing on that bike, but when I do this saddle has been super comfy while still being light. Its great on the downhill and keeps me comfortable on long days of riding

These are my go to gloves for hot weather downhill mountain biking. They are light, flexible, and have great grip. For days I am going a bit more crazy I wear my gloves with a bit more protection, but otherwise these are great overall! I have average sized hands for a woman in the palm, but very long fingers so I went up to a medium and the size is great.

My Norrona Problem is now a Bike one too
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As if I didn't have a major Norrona gore tex problem in the winter, they just had to also make amazing mountain bike shorts. These shorts are great. The black is really more of a grey, and the fabric is tough yet breathable. I am 5 foot 7 135 with muscular legs and although my waist could fit in a small , I have to go medium in order to accommodate thighs and rear. The waist tabs are therefore very useful! The fit is loose without being overly baggy and the length is great. Will probably get more colors, a girl can never have too many mountain bike outfits!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this bike so I could have a somewhat trail bike to go with my down hill bikes, and have not been disappointed. The thing screams downhill and can handle any line, but is still light and nimble on the uphill. I am 5 foot 7 , 135 and bought a medium. Probably could get away with a size small, but I have abnormally long arms and have always felt more comfortable on a medium frame. Will post some pics once it stops snowing in Utah:)

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I have a father who is a mad scientist who never buys himself clothing. When my mother asked that I buy him some good shorts for walking and the gym that were inexpensive and versatile, I went with these. They are light and breathable and very comfortable. My father is a bit of a picky human, but loves these. He loves he mid thigh length, the only gripe he has is that they are sans pockets. Otherwise, he has already asked for the another color as a fathers day gift!. The run true to size, my father is 5 foot 8, 145 slender with a 31 inch waist and the medium fits perfect.

I put this more all-mountain cassette on a more downhill oriented bike at the suggestion of a buddy that uses it on his bike. He said it would make any pedaling uphill easier, I chose the 11X32 and so far its been great. It's been on my bike a couple weeks and no complaints thus far. May upgrade at some point, but for now it is working well and weight is not a huge issue.

Put this on top of my Nissan Xterra, fit well on the factory rails and crossbars. Its not the most low profile rack, but have found it to have little noise and drag. Its been perfect for camping trips and canyoneering trips so that now we can fit more people in the car and put the gear on top!!
