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!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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:)

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!!

SO FAR SO GOOD
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had been gettting some wrist and hand pain after long days of riding, and a friend recommended that I try some carbon bars to reduce noise , chatter, and vibration. I put these on Davinci Wilson DH bike and have noticed quite a difference in exertion in my hands and vibration in hands, forearms, and chest (yes this matters for ladies). My only gripe thus far is that I am having trouble finding the perfect fit in terms of tightening. I was told not to tighten carbon bars to tight as they can ruin the bar, but then almost crashed when my handlebars shifted in my hands off a jump. I have since adjusted and am trying to find the perfect level of tightening. Otherwise, quality bar, feels tough and light.

Got the other color YAY FOR NEON LEOPARD

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Reviewing my favorite bike shorts once more as I had to get the neon blue yellow leopard. Same awesome fit and breeziness. Fabric is thin, did rip a small hole on a slide out, but for that I have my Latin mother who can fix anything via needle and thread. More importantly, they match my "do epic SH$&" socks, who could ask for anything more?

Great Grippy Bike Shoes
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This was my first real pair of biking shoes, as I had been using hiking shoes or trail runners for a bit. I can definitely tell the difference with the grippy rubber that keeps me on my pedals. They are stiff through the heel to arch of the foot enough to pedal, without being uncomfortable to walk in or to ride in all day. Sizing is true to size , I wear a 6.5-7 women's and went for the 7 in men's. Durability wise doing well.

Great shorts, have last years sizing

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the black and turqoise in these from last year. I am 5 foot 6 135 and usually between a small and medium due to larger thighs and bum. Found the sizing to be very odd in these when I bought a medium and am now relieved to hear of the sizing issue! I still wear them they stretched a bit with wear but are still tight in rear and legs while waist is fine (however being Latina I am quite accustomed to this type of issue haha) They are currently more of my

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

These were part of my brother's graduation present. He is not a huge guy but definitely does some weight lifting, so we did a size Xl for his 15 inch biceps. He has worn them a couple times, likes the fit and that they are not super hot on warm days here in Utah. He has yet to take a major fall on them but they seem pretty sturdy without being overly cumbersome.
