Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

WOW! I never really thought too much about spending money on socks. I would buy the bulk pack, usually at some discount store and wear them out and toss them. I was gifted a pair of the Pursuits 7, and I was hooked! My feet are comfortable no matter the activity. I have MTB all day long, sat by the fire and lounged around, comfortable all day, No Smell, thanks Merino!! Sock drawer has been overtaken by the Switwick line. I wear a size 9 and the Mediums are the sweetspot for me!

Great helmet, great fit, great look, great ventilation. I didn't really know it was on until I was done with my ride. I've always hated how road helmets sit so high??? My go-to and I'm glad I found it. Love POC, I ride their snow line and couldn't be happier!!!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wow! I climbed on this BIG bike and it just felt huge, it felt long, (with a wheelbase of 1,260 millimeters for the XL and I was a little intimidated. It took me a few minutes to get a feel, and after playing around a bit, quickly got a feel for it and man you can tell it wants to rip. After reading reviews of other riders that said it "just wants to go fast". I was riding in Wasatch Mountains on a trail with 1000 elevation ascent and a playful , semi-technical fast descent. The way up was nothing special as expected, but wasn't as bad as I would have thought. It was like walking a dog that is pulling on the leash the whole time. Down, the Megatower just owned it, I was able to maneuver when it was technical, able to really lean into turns, while feeling very comfortable and centered. I was able to pick a line, and felt like the bike took care of the rest! Kickass, super fun, super long, and down right killer on the way down!

Swapping over to the 1X took me a minute and was skeptical that I would be losing gears. Hearing the buzz out and about coming from some trusted riders decided to look it and pick out a ring. The quality is there, look and feel are dialed. I can feel a considerable difference in my strokes and the feeling of using my energy more efficiently. Don't think about it, I'm hooked!

I have always been skeptical of throwing some knee pads on. I didn't want them to get in the way of my riding. I put these on and the feel and the fit was there! I started pedaling thinking I am going to have to constantly adjust throughout my ride. The G Form's killed it for me, I didn't have to adjust the whole ride. They gave me enough flexibility to pedal, the inner elastic did not rub me raw or any discomfort. I'm 6' 220 and have muscular stocky legs, the XL's fit amazing!

This short-travel Yeti trail bike is amazing! Yeti's for me in the past have been too long for me, I have always felt like I'm on top of a limo. I got on this and instantly felt like playing around and wanted to be a free-thinking park commando. With the 120mm in the front and just 100mm in the rear, it rallies on the descent and is efficient on the uphill. A 29er with clearance up to 2.4 the SB100 can shred it up and down and playful on everything in-between. I had the Schwalbe-Magic Mary Addix's on which were and are amazing! I would definitely feel comfortable on any terrain, going up, going down, getting super techy with the SB100, and from what Yeti is saying this is a bike that fills a lot of the gaps between their lines!

I was skeptical of the price tag on this and the quality that I might be getting. I can tell you that the quality was definitely there! For a fraction of the cost of the widely used Garmin and Wahoo's that saturate the market, I found that the ease of use and straightforward functions of the 410 was nice. The one-click setup using their app was fast and easy. The time from start-up to pedal was there, I was never waiting on the computer. Pinpoint accuracy with the GPS functioning was in line and matched up with competitors. The newly improved app was great and packed with info. Able to sync with my Strava without any issues. For the price, obviously doesn't have some of the bells and whistles as the more expensive computers, but if you are looking for the computer to pack you full of data and info on your rides without breaking your bank, or just getting into biking this is a no-brainer!

i have had the opportunity to ride on these tires a few times on different bikes and on different terrain. I probably don't push these tires to the max, but they will hold their own going into any burm, and I felt like I had to brake less and less the more I trusted the tire. They really just want to push it more and more to dig in and trust the nasty nobs. I would definitely put these on my personal bike and will be my next set to pick up! If you are looking to try a new grippy and rippy tire these are it!!!

I've put a lot of different helmets on this year, and I will go ahead and agree with a few reviews already posted. The fit was right M/XL, the weight (didn't even know it was on when I started pedaling) The vent system is spot on with 20, all in all, I loved it, I would recommend to my friends, and it is what I am going with moving forward, thanks Shred!

I had a riot on the Spartan 27.5! A Big Travel Bike (165mm) that climbed really well for me. Climbing technically it was rad, seemed like the harder I pushed it the better it was. It was playful, I could get over the front of it, all around it was really solid. I felt confident, the response was there, could have used less dampening, but all around sweet bike, the price point is good, the bike lives up to its name!

I recently had the opportunity to take these out for a spin. Unfortunately, the trip I wanted to use them for was canceled, To be continued on my review. You can tell the quality is there and they are comfortable and lite to wear and put on.

I love these when I am on the trail running. As I got used to the different lenses, both rock in the situations they were made for, Platinum lense for the sunny days, and the Rose lense for cloudy or flat light days, also sweet dawn/early evenings. These glasses are classified “medium fit/large coverage.” They have a significant wrap to them which ensures a large visual field that remains unobstructed by the lack of frames. Solid purchase and I'm happy I did.
