Here's what others have to say...

5 5

The Radarlock XL's fit much better than the old Radar XL's (I own both) and the lens swapping feature is excellent. I can remove and replace the lens almost without touching the surface and putting fingerprints all over it, and it doesn't give me a nervous breakdown thinking I'll break the frame like the old design did (for the record, the frame has yet to break on my old Radar XL's and I have swapped lenses plenty of times). As for the photochromic lens, I'm satisfied but not over the moon about it. I mostly wear these mountain biking, and it seems like the brim of my helmet keeps the lens from fully converting to its darkest tint, even in bright Moab sunlight. If Oakley had included a dark tint spare lens, like Black or Red Iridium, these sunglasses would be perfect. My only other complaint is that while the smaller, more rounded lens performs slightly better and looks sportier, it loses a bit of the square Terminator style I love about the Radar XL. Bottom line, I'm still giving these five stars for function and fit.

Just my opinion, of course. I originally bought the Nomad to use dirt biking, and found it too small to fit all my gear. The Apex, on the other hand, fits my tool kit (about the size of a travel bath kit), spare tube (way bigger than an MTB tube), pump, first aid/emergency kit, 40ft. of 8mm static line, a waterproof shell, a long-sleeve wool baselayer, food, sunglasses and 100oz. of water. If/when I get a GPS or PLB, it'll fit in there too, no problem. The bladder system is great, thanks to the center divider that keeps it flatter than a straight tubular bladder, and I love the quick-disconnect feature for filling up. While the full pack weighs at least 15lbs, I don't find it uncomfortable on 4-5hr. rides. I suppose if I were on some sort of epic long-distance ride, I might use it for mountain biking, but honestly I can't see myself needing this much room for anything day-to-day. Maybe commuting, if you have a small laptop with its own sleeve. Hard to call too much space a negative feature, though, so five stars it is. I am very pleased with this pack so far, and would recommend it if you need a LOT of room for mountain biking.

Better than the Flux, has Q.C. issues
4 5

Bottom line, this helmet should have been called the Flux 2. It has the same great fit and looks even better, it's lighter, with updated padding and more vents. Mine came with the Detox 1 system (same as the Flux), not the Detox 2. Fine by me, but they are advertising Detox 2 so someone needs to check on that. Had to lace the straps through the system as well, so you might have to do that. Overall I am pleased, I've owned a Flux for years and it was time to upgrade. I got the Striker as a gift, so I don't have anything to say on the price difference.

I have the non-TNT version mounted to Stan's Flow rims, front and rear. No problems mounting whatsoever. Great tire for hard, dry conditions, deals with rocks and roots (again, dry) very well, and seems like a reasonably long-lasting compound (few trips to Moab with no need for new tires). Unfortunately, as a rear tire, the Saguaro suffers due to the linked center tread line, which wears down to a solid stripe. While it probably decreases rolling resistance and increases longevity, it definitely hurts traction when climbing. I've been looking for something similar without the linked center tread, and so far been unable to find it...and when I do, it'll probably wear out too quickly. I like this tire overall, and I'd recommend it to anyone as a front tire.

The Flux fits great (on me), looks money, sits lower than Bell and Giro XC-style helmets, and has way bigger vents than most MTB helmets. My only gripes would be that the huge front vents tend to scoop in the occasional bug, and the rear fit system eventually gets tired out after 3 or 4 seasons of heavy (2-3x per week all spring, summer and fall) use. Everything else is top notch. Love this helmet and will definitely buy another if this one takes a bad hit.
