Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love the extra sense of protection of my Dropframe Pro helmet. Luckily (knock on wood) I haven't had any major impacts, but I have no doubt it would do its job to keep my noggin safe. As seen in other reviews, it does run a little snug, so if you're close to in-between sizes I would recommend sizing up. I am a medium in most other helmets and went with the large. It breathes fairly well, I've had to take it off a few times when climbing in the hot sun. BUT the nice thing is you can hang it on your bars by the ear protection loops. Sunglasses fit fine with the ear pads and I have run goggles with it on some dusty bike park days and they integrate fantastic with no sliding of the strap (I use the Smith Squad MTB). ALSO I get lots of compliments on how cool the helmet is on the trail!

The fit on these shorts is great, not too baggy and not too skinny. The padded liner breathes well and is comfy on long rides. I have two complaints however. The padded liner has some stitching coming apart after 6 uses. The shorts also are pilling pretty bad on the front after a few rides. They have not came in contact with anything abrasive so that is pretty disappointing. For the price, I would look at something different for sure.

Comfortable and everything stays put

This little pack kicks butt! I purchased this so I could carry extra water and supplies for going on rides with my dog, but it has now replaced my frame bag and is my daily bike pack. The zipper pulls are very glove friendly and it has enough space for anything I could need on a daily ride. As stated in other reviews, the water bottles are a little tricky to get out when riding, but once I got used to it I have had no problems. You just have to dial the fit of the straps with the water bottles in the holsters before you go riding. The only negative thing I really have to say about this pack is it isn’t very waterproof. I got caught in a HEAVY rainstorm and it leaked thru the zippers. Luckily I prepared for rain and had my electronics in a baggie. My favorite part of this bag is how well it stays put and how reasonably unnoticeable it is. I ride a fully rigid bike so I get hammered around a lot on the trails here in Colorado, but never have I once lost my water bottles or felt like the contents of my pack are rattling apart. There is a reason my whole quiver of packs is Osprey.

Easy to install and great function

My gearhead Jacob was awesome with helping me make sure this fit my bike and answering questions I had about included hardware. I was very pleased with how easy this dropper was to install, I had it all hooked up and ready to go in 20 mins. I have put almost 100 miles of use on it so far with zero issues. The action is super smooth, even with it getting caked in mud during this wet spring. I am running this on a second generation Surly Karate Monkey.

Super comfortable and super durable!

These shorts are insanely comfortable due to their lightweight stretchable material. I have ran these for the last two months of riding and only washed them twice haha. They do a good job of wicking away moisture and stink. I’ve also taken a dip into the river with them on and was pumped at how fast they dried. There are two nice upper pockets, one featuring an iPhone sized Velcro pocket, and one nice zipper pocket on the thigh. One thing I really like is that I’m kind of inbetween sizes, but there is a nice velcro synch on the waste that eliminates the need for a belt. After two months of heavy use they’re showing zero signs of wear and tear!

This helmet ROCKS! I ride a fully rigid hardtail MTB and I purchased this helmet specifically because it uses a BOA system to really dial in the fit as most of the time I am riding I am bouncing and rattling all over the place . Put it on, spin the BOA dial until the helmet is snug and BOOM, I’m stylin’ and safe all day long! It just stays in place! Really light weight and breathable as well. The removable visor is a very nice touch as well. I’m not very into bright and flashy helmets, so the earthy tones of the green really speak to me. I would say it fits true to size.
