Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Before purchasing this rack I read plenty of reviews and noticed that there was one big issue with the rear wheel tray’s fastener not staying in, thus the wheel tray would fall off. Yakima did recalls for this and “fixed” the issue but some people still claimed to have issues.

The rack’s design and functionality met my needs and I saw a simple solution to the problem at hand. I just replaced the stock fastener with a bolt and nylock nut and this rack has been a workhorse ever since. I needed a rack that would allow me constant and quick access to my hatchback without having to lower or swing a rack out of the way, and I needed something that could carry my full-suspension mtb, bmx, or road bike.

This rack is certainly not without flaws, but it is sturdy and with a simple modification gets the job done. If you want something of equal or greater value, the Rocky Mounts is probably a better option considering that the Yakima isn’t 100% trustworthy out of the box. I just happened to get a great deal on this and it has worked well for me. I give it 4 stars because I never actually gave it the chance to fail on me before replacing the component, so the rack may have worked fine on it’s own, but would be contrary to nearly every bad review I read across the internet.

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

After deciding to travel to a bike park to do some downhill a few times, I made the call to get a full-face. I’ve never owned one before and was fully prepared for it to be uncomfortable, hot, and hinder my line of sight. After doing my research this brand seemed to have some quality features and appearances that the others in its price range didn’t have. I spent 2 full days riding the Angel Fire Bike Park in New Mexico and this helmet was incredible. I honestly never really noticed it once I started riding, and even wanted to leave it on on the lift ride up to keep my head out of sun. Needless to say, I was really impressed with how comfortable it was after two days of 9:00-4:00 riding in the sun. On my journey I saw many other $100 helmets and they just didn’t have the same quality of aesthetic design nor did they seem to have as high-quality features or components.
If you’re looking to get into the full-face game, this is a good place to start!
