I love the Fox Racing Ascent glove for cross country riding because it manages sweat and heat well and the leather palm gets OUTSTANDING grip. Like, really one of the best gloves I've ever used.

Unfortunately there's a big BUT. They palms started to stiffen and crinkle up after 4-5 washes. The packaging actually says not to wash them, but not sure how that's going to work after dusty 6 hour rides.

So the bottom line is that I desperately want these to work, and maybe I'm just washing them wrong, but I wouldn't buy another pair.

Having been a die-hard lycra user for decades, I've reluctantly switched over to baggies with briefs this year and have been pretty thrilled with the performance.

The POC Resistance Enduro Boxer performs well enough for extended cross country rides, but is comfortable enough for riding the lifts all day and then hanging out at the bar. It find myself digging for these in the drawer.

I had no idea what a difference the right dropper remote would make until I tried the Wolf Tooth Components Remote. In rough terrain when you need to drop or raise the post while maintaining full control, the right remote makes all of the difference. I'll never get another bike without it. Such a phenomenal piece of equipment that I never would have guessed I needed.

The Continental Race King tires are great for xc racing when you want to roll fast. I've used them for Leadville the last couple of years, and they were great except when I smashed into a rock when they weren't quite inflated enough, which led to a series of flats. But when you have the setup dialed, the Race King is a great tire made for KOMs.

When you're spending a cars-worth of hard-earned cash on your dream bike, it's worth taking the time to get the details right. I was psyched to get the all black details to complement my Fox Fork and Santa Cruz Tall Boy. Best of all, the magical mechanics behind Competitive Cyclist flawlessly added the decals during the build process for no extra charge.

The Fox Racing Ranger Cargo shorts are great for all purpose mountain bike riding. They are lighweight enough for cross country riding while at the same time being stylish and durable enough for riding the lifts and pointing the bike downhill. I like that the cargo pocket is large enough to easily fit a phone and wallet.

It seems like an oxymoron, but the Competitive Cyclist Interview Full Zip Hoodie is cool enough to wear almost anywhere while at the same time keeping you toasty and warm. The interior is incredibly soft and well insulated. As you'd expect for Competitive Cyclist, the fit is on the slimmer side without being overly "race fit," so it's great for ... well ... all of us really.

The Yeti Rambler 18oz is the perfect size for taking your every day coffee or tea with you when you're running out the door in a hurry. It's also small enough to stow in a pack to have a refreshing warm break during backcountry skiing. Anytime you need to keep something hot or cold, the Rambler is the perfect choice. And since it's Yeti, it's durable and will perform.

For some reason, I'm inexplicably, irrationally drawn to certain beefy, manly outdoor cooking gear -- gas grills, cast iron, Yeti Coolers, and ... large thermoses. The Yeti Rambler Bottle 36oz more than fits this bill and then performs up to standard. Great for soup, tea, or coffee on cold mornings or beer, wine, lemonade or just ice cold water in the peak of summer.

I gave the Yeti Rambler Bottle as a gift to an avid elk hunter and have heard nothing but good things.
