Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was really only looking for a shin guard so my pedal didn't get jammed into my shin when not paying attention when shifting... but these are more than adequate with the flexibility and durability that you would want in a knee/shin guard. These are soft, fairly lightweight. There is a hidden plastic piece in the knee that makes that area much more durable than I expected. I ordered a size small but if you're a girl, expect that you're going to have to strap them down or sew the straps since they don't come in a size xs. These run smaller than the POC pads & seem to be the best fit for smaller people. Overall these stayed put and are comfortable to pedal around in.

The only downfall is that when it rained on me today, these pads smelled like hockey gear since they absorb your mtn bike odor & sweat. Kinda made me want to loose my lunch.

Although my arms are super tiny, I ordered these in a size small and with the help of my sewing machine (to make a dart at the top) these fit great. I'm 5'3" and 110lbs with normal non-michelle-obama looking arms. These are flexible, light grey in color and stay put. There is no plastic reinforcement in these and there is a 2 in section of skin that shows on my forearm and glove. Fox can you please make these in an XS for the ladies then i could give this a 5 star review?!

I also crashed pretty hard on these last weekend and they kept my elbows from being ripped off.

I've tried on my fair share of helmets and the inside fit on this thing is so perfect. There is a full inside cage system that makes sure your helmet is sitting correctly on your head. This helmet runs true to size. The breathability is comparable to other helmets I own, but lets be honest here- you're going to sweat your ass off biking so why not look good / better with this on your head.

Sock it up and pay the price for these! (see what I did there) I like super lightweight socks with no cushion & these hold up to long runs, hikes or even mountain bike rides. The colors get a little crazytown but I'll wear anything that keeps my feet happy. I wear a size 6 women's shoe & the small fit my feet fine.

I would like to take the last 5 seconds of my review to straight up lie to you and say that the red and yellow colors will make you run faster.

I am very picky when it comes to gloves. The size, the quality, heck everything matters when you're biking long distance. This glove is great considering I tear through them about 3 per season. There is a hook and loop strap around the wrist and a pull tab in by the middle finger (looks like a web) to get these off after a long ride. The gel seems good (out of the box), we will see how long it lasts. I traditionally wear a size 6 in gloves and the small fit me great. These were a tad loose compared to my last pair. but I wouldn't want to go a size smaller for fear of swelling.

OK i know the euros are much tinier than the 'mericans. BUT this ran much smaller than expected. I purchased this as a gift for my dad and it was a size too small. He normally wears a L but had to go for an XL (but then returned it again for an XXL because he didn't like his belly showing through the neon green fabric)

If you're normally a L , I would suggest going up 1 size.


This top is basic and does the job. Always a fan of Castelli. This product does not disappoint!

I purchased this pack for day trips while mountain biking. It has lots of pockets and adjustable straps so it can fit any type of person. It has a solid waist strap that stays put while biking yet allows for lots of movement and standard adjustable shoulder straps. The amount of pockets and nooks in this pack is a bit ridiculous. Personally I like lower profile packs but this one had the best fit. I usually have with me a raincoat, tools, full water bladder, spare tubes and snacks and there is always more room. My only gripe is that my stock bladder leaks when I sit it down so I had to swap it out with a camelbak - now I'm happy.

This shoe is lightweight and very breathable and have made my long runs more enjoyable. I found this shoe very stable in the heel as well as kept my foot in place with the high lacing. I have never worn New Balance before and found that the sizing ran about a half a size too small. But then again I have a wide foot so maybe thats why I had to size up.

This Crank Brothers Multi 17 Tool was harder to get out of the packaging than it was to use. Lots of options on this tool including a chain tool (I wasn't expecting that) This works great and hopefully helps me out when its needed on the trail.
