Dissent socks have been my sock of choice for a few years now. They are a MTB specific compression sock. They fit great look great and your feet never get those annoying hot spots in long events.
Italian produced Canadian designed quality.
I love this seat bag there is more than enough room for extra layers, tools, snacks, and a thermos. The roll top closure makes it almost completely waterproof. I fell brought overflow on a river on this trip and had dry clothes and an extra jacket to put on disputed my bike being nearly submerged in icy river water.
Some of the best socks on the market, very comfortable and a nice fit designed for biking. They have a great range to suit all riders the Rad design really pops as you can see. My number one choice when it comes to socks for any sport, which designs do you like best?
I have used Ikons for a few years now in all conditions and love them. When it is greasy or wet I lower the pressure for a bigger foot print. I run them between 20 and 25 psi.<br />
They accelerate fast and have a consistent feel when turning and don't give out when you are working them. Like in this picture where I came in way to hot on a small berm on day six of the trans rockies ST6 2014.<br />
I use the 2.2 versions that weigh 590 grams. I put them on tubeless even though they are not the tubeless ready ones and they have never let me down. <br />
I use them front and rear. They are a great xc and marathon tyre where you wont be left behind if the conditions change mid race.
I like this bike because it is very very agile (with the right stem ect...) it's fairly light to say its a full suspention. But a massive downfall for this bike is the rear sus the ROCKSHOX MONARCH 2.1 is not a good shock at all it doesn't have the lock-out/hill climb mode which if you are a passionate trail rider you would want
