I've been using VE paddles for around 3 years now and other competitors such as Werner, Select, Lettmann or AT seem inferior. I think VE have nailed the weight to surface area of the blades which allow you to transfer so much power into each stroke, making these paddles perfect for all disciplines of whitewater kayaking. I've never had any issues with durability either and would easily trust VE in any grade of whitewater. One of my favourite things about VE paddles is the fact that they are custom built to any feather, length or hand you could wish for(there's even a chart to tell you which size would be best for you depending on your height and discipline of paddling!) Also, there is an option to convert the paddles into either 2 or 4 way splits if need be. This is great if you're trying to space save for trips abroad or just as an emergency pair! Combinations of Carbon blades/shaft or Glass blades/shaft are available if you don't want to splash out on full carbon blades or want something a bit more durable.
What an experience riding this thing for the day! Dangerous, fast, poppy, rail control, peanut butter kind of stuff... Wow! A lot of board for a cheap price. This thing is like lightning, as always with bataleon the triple base is incredible. Rails were a breeze. Control in the air off big kickers was a challenge. This board compliments an all mountain board really well for a rail day in the park or anything that requires quick, snappy turns.
I've had this watch for about 4 years now, and it feels almost like new. These watches last for a long time, and surprisingly stay in wicked condition. My G-Shock is white and the color hasn't faded whatsoever. Since these watches are waterproof, it's basically on my wrist all summer wherever I go. You can wear it for almost anything, and I even wear it to play tennis! Very stylish of course, but also very useful. The reason this watch is so good for activities like hiking is because it so lightweight and sporty, but you also don't need to be worried about damaging it since it's so durable. Standard timing features, backlit display, and hard rubber material that's very scratch resistant. Going to be getting a black one soon too!
Extremely light and comfortable boots. Everything you are looking for from a high performance perspective. Speed is a critical part of the game and with the F50 Adizeros you can gain the competitive edge on your opponents. I highly recommend them for any player in the game of soccer.
Unfortunately this bike was stolen from me, but it served as a catalyst to get me into cycling. It's a great intro bike to get you out on the roads and give you a real feel of just how awesome it can be to spend an afternoon of freedom cycling. I highly recommend this bike to anyone looking to spend less then $1K.
Last season was the first year I used these goggles. All I have to say is absolutely insane....Not only is the style impossible to beat, but the quality is very high end. The lenses are absolutely massive, so vision is the best it possibly could be. Ventilation is also stellar, so these goggles never fog up. The lenses are interchangeable, so if you want a different colour, you can just swap them out for something else. I have had Spy sunglasses in the past, so I know the quality, and I was happy to know their ski goggles are on par. Highly recommend these goggles to up your game as the performance is top notch.
All Babolat racquets are shoulders above their current competitors. Many of the top tennis players in the world are currently using these sticks. If you go to a national junior tournament you will notice all the top up and coming juniors are using these racquets as well. I have used various Babolat racquets throughout my playing career and have found all of them to be exceptional. The Pure Storm is by far my favourite. It provides me the perfect balance of power and control. With chronic shoulder issues the Pure Storm provides me the edge I need on court without extra stress on my shoulder, thus I can enjoy long, intense practice sessions without lingering pain afterwards. I highly recommend this product for tennis players who are looking for a bit more control than the average racquet.
I have been on skis since I was a little kid, but there was a span of 5-6 years where I did next to nothing. I recently got back into it last season, and I needed a set up to get me back into the swing of things. These Head skis got the job done! Since at the start of the season I was basically a beginner again, these worked out great. I did improve towards the end of the season so I will be looking for a more advanced set up next year, but happy with my purchase on these nevertheless. If you are a beginner and looking for something simple to start, I highly recommend.
Like most shoes, I usually go with Nike. The Lunarswift 4's are no exception and are top notch. I have used these from everything to long distance running, to cross training, to tough hikes. There are a slip in model, with laces covering the outside, so your feet are more than secure and stable throughout. Very narrow fit almost like a glove, and extremely lightweight for fast movement. Great quality too, have lasted me for almost 2 years. Great shoe if you want something versatile and high quality for a variety of activities.
These are simply great golf shoes. Very comfortable and awesome traction. I have been playing with them for a few years and the durability is there as well. Good for all weather, and even heavy rain too.
These are wicked headphones. I was originally sold on the whole Beats trend, however when I got the headphones I was surprised how good the quality actually was. Maybe not up to Bose standards, but very good regardless. Beats definitely wins in the style category, and the quick remote on the aux cord is great for convenience. These are over the ear headphones, and not noise cancelling. The only downfall I would say is that other people can hear the music you're playing sometimes if your volume is substantially high. Other than that, these are great headphones for low movement activities. I lift weights with them on all the time, and they work great!
