Flare you should own

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Was really surprised at how much I liked the fit of these shorts. Super soft with just enough compression to keep the leg grippers in place. The wide elastic waist is okay, I need to put in some longer rides before I can give a solid thumbs up. The chamois is good and seems to have the padding in the right places. This is a great quality short with a fun

Something fresh

Thank you Fox Racing for producing this jersey (and shorts). This jersey is defiantly not a shrink and pink it, it is made for us ladies. The hem only has silicone in the back half, no elastic so the jersey lays flat and stays where it should. The sleeves are a little long for my liking, but are comfortable. This paired with the shorts is a statement, you won't be missed when you are on the trails!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been waiting for this version of the Olympus to be available, primary for the Vibram sole and it was well worth the wait. Hands down this has been one of the best trail shoe soles I have run it. I have run on hard packed snow, crunchy ice, dirt and pavement and the grip has been great in all other conditions. The only con that I have found with the shoe is there isn't enough height in the toe box so I had to remove the insole to get the height I like. Great shoe, would highly recommend it.

I started wearing Brooks Cascadia at version 2 and stopped wearing them around version 7, a friend convinced me that the 10's had gone back to being that go to type of shoe... they were right! The change in material in the uppers make them feel a little snug (they don't stretch out), the sole is fantastic, grippy yet not too aggressive. i put in a lot of miles on the trail, the few miles I do hit pavement they perform fine. This is the shoe I recommend to new trail runners, mine look well "loved"having covered many miles in the Grand Canyon and in the Wasatch Mountains and they just keep going.
