Kayla Weiser's Bio

I grew up in the mountains of Utah and Colorado, and have found myself unable to leave it. During the winter when not in school, I am all in skiing. I have been telemarking for 11 years now, and won't be stopping any time soon! I enjoy mostly Big Mountain, BC, and park. Outside of skiing, I also dig rock climbing, whitewater paddling, paddleboarding, camping, hiking- pretty much anything outdoors. I love getting out with my boyfriend, and our year-old Newfie, Camber.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked up a pair of these to replace some shredded manufacturers grips on my Juliana, and I do admit I am quite pleased. They are pretty comfortable- not super cushy, but comfortable for a full day of riding. Good and grippy without being obnoxious. I went on a trip and forgot my gloves so I had to roll bare-handed with these, and they worked great (I definitely would have been miserable with my old grips). Super easy to install, I like that they've got the locking rings. The fun colors are an added plus too!

These are pretty neat socks. True to size, they stay in place, nice low cut, and keep their shape after washing. The ventilation is nice too! Not much else to say about them- if you're looking for a good solid low sock, I would definitely recommend them!

Grippy Goodness

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I finally got turned on to platforms, and picked these up- couldn't have asked for anything more! They are nice and wide, and super grippy paired with my Five Tens. They are pretty beefy too- definitely not the lightest chunks, but they won't break prematurely. Just make sure you don't take one to the shin!
All in all, great pedal for the price point. And the fun colors are bomb too.

Once I finally got into mountain biking last year, I learned rather quickly that it wasn't very forgiving... Bone bruise to the elbow, plenty of blood- it was time to step up the game and invest in a good pair of elbow pads. I had purchased the VPD Air knee pads prior, and LOVED how low profile and comfortable they were. These are the same! The fit is again on point- I went by the sizing chart and measured in between a S and M, and got the smaller so I didn't run into the slip issue. As of yet, no issue with them sliding down, though it's a minor struggle to pull them on (definitely worth it though). In the end, they look good, they feel good, and they WORK!

I can't express how stoked I am on these. I've taken a few too many spills without protection, and I'm getting a little sick of the bruising and blood... Feeling way better now! I LOVE the design- not bulky and easy to fit under shorts, the padding is awesome and easy to mold- I'm not a fan of the hard plastic. The neoprene anti-slip padding actually WORKS too, so long as you get the sizing right! These bad boys stay in place for a full day of riding. They're OK for pedaling, if you're on a ride that has a mix of up n' down.
As far as sizing goes, I strongly recommend checking the sizing chart- I found that to be very accurate (I just used a string to measure and put it up against a ruler). I was in between a S and M, and went with the smaller size so I didn't have any issues of slip.
All in all, if you need some pads- look no further! Ladies or gents, these are the bomb dot com.

I'm a big fan of POC, and I'm digging these shorts! They're accurate in saying that they're a little baggy but not so much that you're swimming in them. I fit comfortably in an XS in their spandies, and picked up the same size in these- they fit well in the waist, almost a little tight but I feel the S would be too roomy- for reference, I wear a 25 in jeans. I am fairly athletically built- between my big ol' quads and the smaller waist, I can't use the hand pockets too well (although this seems to be a common issue with the POC shorts, my bf has the same problem on his Trail Vent Shorts).
The material is great- super durable (I've taken a handful of good spills and no sign of wear or tear). I like the length as well- comfortably fit over knee pads, but not too long for my short stature!

Great selection of colors if you want to spice up your bike, or if you just need to replace some shredded grips. Super easy to swap out, fits like a charm, and the clamp keeps out of the way with being on the inside, so you can use the full grip. There's nothing super special about these, but they're a great basic replacement grip for your ride!

I got these for my man, and they seem to do the trick. He used to have the basic POC full-finger gloves, which worked great as a basic glove but didn't offer too much protection and tore pretty easily. In come the Simi Gloves- great padding without being absurdly bulky (especially on the outter palm area), and the openings on the fingers are great to allow for more dexterity. Super solid velcro closure too, so you don't have to worry about these bad boys going anywhere. Plus, they're really sticky too! Sizing seems pretty standard, he typically wears a size L in ski/bike gloves, and the Large works really well in these. All in all, they're holding up really well after a couple months of riding, definitely would recommend for a good basic lightly padded glove!

I got these for my man, who used to have the Flow shorts before tearing them to shreds in a nasty fall. The Trail Vent shorts have the same fit- he wears a 31 in pants, and the 30s fit great with the tab adjustments. The vents are pretty sweet, great for the hot days on the bike. The only complaint he has is on the pockets- they are silly small. When on the body, he can't easily get his hands in and out, they're way tight. Only slight design flaw, other than that- they're super!

I got this to replace my boyfriend's crunched mtb helmet. He took a fall on his Trabec Race MIPS helmet (POC0131)- hands down swear by the MIPS now, it WORKS! He wanted a more BMX style helmet, and this is the one. The fit is on point- true to the size chart and other POC helmets. Another plus is how the helmet sits on your head- seems to cradle your head for good protection, especially in the back. The open vents are awesome, allow for easy airflow. All in all, another great model by POC- great for bikes, skate, anything that requires noggin protection!

I'm a lady, so needless to say I have quite a few bathroom goods that I carry with me during travel. This kit carries it all, and still closes without trouble. I just traveled to Japan for a couple of weeks and was living out of a suitcase, and this kit made it much easier. It has one mesh pocket inside on the lid, and then one pocket on the exterior front for your toothbrush. Love Dakine products- super durable, and very good looking. All in all, the best bathroom bag I've found so far- definitely would recommend!

Pro Bars are by far my number one. After choking down plenty of bars found in my pocket, no need to go back after finding the Meal Bar! The taste is far superior- doesn't taste processed, you feel like you're actually eating real food. If you need a good snack for a day of activities, this is it- gets you some good calories and it doesn't make you miserable. Easy to throw in your jacket pocket, pack, purse, etc. I've enjoyed every flavor I've tried so far, but I will say that the Superfood Slam and Oatmeal Raisin are the current favs...

My dad is a pretty serious mountain biker, and busted his helmet at the end of riding season. He's always been a fan of Bell- their fit and overall design- so I decided to give him an upgrade and get him in a MIPS helmet. The fit is right on, it's super airy! The only complaint so far is that it doesn't have a visor, but that's easy enough to deal with by wearing a visor underneath if you really want the shade protection. I am a firm believer in the MIPS tech- recently saved my bf from a wicked concussion earlier this year. Definitely would recommend it to ANYONE and everyone looking for a new helmet!

I teamed up with my fam to get this badboy for my 8 year old sister, who has really been wanting a "real" mountain bike. And she basically fell in love at first sight on Christmas, so I think we did good. Overall it seems like a great entry-level mountain bike - fully equipped with gears, two brakes, and some suspension as well. Great basic bike- it is pretty heavy, but for just some basic exploring and getting to know bikes, this is a perfect fit. Will update once the snows stop and she gets a chance to put it to the test on the trails!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got into mountain biking this year, and after some chilly days and some bloody arms, I figured it was time to get a long sleeve jersey. I love the POC line and settled on the Brass Green in this top. I am a lady, so I bought the Small- good size, a little bit roomy which is what I prefer especially for biking.
The material is soft- not as 'rough' as on the Flow Jersey. It is still thick enough to provide warmth and protection against the trails and branches. Still breathes well enough too, don't feel like I'm wearing a trashbag.
All in all, great jersey. Good color too- goes with my Hella Yella bike!
