Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm new to the Swiftwick club and loving it. These socks stay put and don't give you sweaty feet at the gym, hiking, running, at the office, whatever. I was in much need of a sock upgrade and am glad I decided to try Swiftwicks.

They run true to size. I'm a US Women's Size 5.5-6 foot, and the Size Small socks fit great. No bunching up, not loose, and not too tight.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave these as a gift to my brother, who rides 5-6 times a week. Here's what he had to say:

Excellent shorts! They have a nice stretch, 2 regular pockets, and 2 zippered pockets. They also have a nice silicon band around the waist that helps keep your shorts up when you are flying high speed through brake bumps, roots, and rocks. The zipper pockets can fit a phone, but the regular pockets are angled and placed perfectly were your phone won’t fall out.

In warm weather, they are well vented and don’t retain heat, so you feel cool. The fabric holds up well to trees and crashes too.

For fit, I have a 32” waist and am 6'2" and the mediums fit perfectly.

Road bikes have had electronic shifting for years now and it's about time us dirt shredders got some of the technology. Zero wires! True wireless electronic shifting is a dream! This made for the easiest setup on a new bike you could ever have. The shifting is so smooth and the battery lasts a good amount of time. The battery is removable, small, and you can buy extras if you need to. The remote is programmable and doesn’t have the long lever throw that a cable lever would. I placed this on my SB130 and it just worked! The derailleur shifts great, even under torque while also being almost silent. Lastly, the derailleur will move out of harm's way if you do end up laying your bike on its side. If you are looking to put AXS on your trail or enduro bike, X01 is the best option. It is a little more rugged than the XX1 version. Once you go wireless, you will never go back.

Excellent fork with an unlimited amount of adjustments (LSR, HSR, LSC, HSC). It will take you a little longer to get this forked tuned for your perfect fit because of the number of adjustments available but once you do you will never have a better riding fork. The small bump and berm compliance is extraordinary. Brake bumps and roots are eaten up and you don’t lose traction. Over rocky terrain, it feels to have the right amount of dampness but needs to be ridden aggressively.

The range of this cassette is unbelievable. Eagle 12 speed is the way to go on any XC, Trail, or Enduro bike if you want to be able to climb the steepest terrain with ease and have great reliability. The X01 cassette is worth the cost difference versus the GX. It is lighter, made with more durable materials, and constructed better.

The stopping power and adjustability on the Code brakes are excellent. There are several different adjustments you can make to ensure you get the perfect fit for how you ride or what conditions you are riding in. Easily make you more confident because you know you can stop faster or apply the brakes when you need to. I’d suggest these brakes for any enduro or DH rig.
