I think this is a good tool. I can't say I absolutely love it but it looks nice and is very functional as a do it all tool. My wife carries one of the smaller synchros tools and we love that particular one, has just about all you need in a slightly smaller package.

Great pump for the price. Works very well on road tires and pretty well on mountain bike tires. It's not super high volume so it does take quite a few pumps to a bike tire up to pressure. Good size for leaving in your vehicle all year. My only gripe is that I wish the PSI only went up to 120 or so, it would make dialing in your mountain bike pressures a lot easier. I can't remember exactly but the gauge seemed to almost go up to 200 or something...

Sometimes it can be hard to find googles with clear lenses that you like. These are perfect! My wife and I use them for mt. biking and dirt biking and I also use them for snowmobiling. For the price they are terrific and they fit well. If they get scratched up after a season or two they are inexpensive enough that you don't have to feel bad about buying new ones or new lenses. They are medium sized I would say. Not big like a lot of modern ski goggles but not super small either. Would work well for a small to medium face.

These socks are exactly what I look for in a bike sock. Black, simple and affordable. They come up just over your ankle and are very durable. I have a few pairs of these and they show no signs of wearing out after a full season. Two thumbs up!

I love Dakine bike gear and this shirt is no different. I generally wear ym clothes on the larger side so I ordered this in a size larger and it fits great! I'm 5' 8", 160 lbs and had ordered a medium previously and it was just a bit too tight for my liking. Great bike shirt for a great price!

I’ll start by saying that for all but new style full size trucks I think that this is the best designed tailgate pad out. The notches for bikes are perfect for quickly and easily keeping bikes in place and the soft material on the underside of the pad is great for not scratching your truck. However, I’ve had two of them now and they seem to completely fall apart after about two seasons. The black quickly fades to grey within the first year and then the fabric/straps starts to deteriorate the second. I do tend to leave the pad on all summer long but still I think it should hold up better than that. Secondly, if you have a newer generation full size truck with a thicker tailgate this pad fits very awkwardly. I’m going to give the Dakine DLX a try this time around and see how that goes. Raceface needs a redesign with some longer lasting materials and a thicker top pad for modern tailgates and they’ll have a 5 star product. Just my two cents.

I love these helmets, I've had a few of them now. They look cool, fit well and most importantly keep you safe! I have the Bell Full-9 now too (which is a $400) helmet and it may be a touch lighter but I honestly don't think it's any better than the Disciple. I'd say if you're looking for a full face and find a color you like in the Giro Disciple, get one!

This pump is awesome, a total game changer. We dirt bike and mountain bike and the only pressure we need to go up to is 30 so why have a pump that goes up to 120 and makes it difficult to dial in your pressures. You can dial in you tires pressures exactly how you want them. The only negatives I would say is that the pump is quite large if you are always going to have one in your vehicle and that the camo is a bit obnoxious, I wish they would also make a black one. But for mountain biking this pump is the best out.

I have tried on quite a few different pairs of knee pads over the years and keep coming back to these. For shuttling and days at the bike park these are great. They fit very well and don't cost a fortune. I would say if you do a lot of pedaling wearing knee pads I would look for a pair that is a bit lighter and more breathable but for shuttles and days on the chair lift these are great.

This is a great duffel, especially for the price. Is at as nice as it's north face and patagonia counterparts.. no, but it also costs significantly less. I use it as my main bag for my bike gear in the summer and for my ski/snowboard gear in the winter. It's very waterproof and is the perfect size for my needs. As a travel bag i would probably want something with a few more compartments. 5 stars for what it is.
