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 bike! Norco has done justice by producing a bike that is a killer on both trails and gravity. This bike is extremely capable, comfortable, and is an amazingly smooth ride. Not only that, but it turns heads in the MTB Park! I definitely recommend this for riders that are looking for a bike that does it all!
The RC PRO range from Scott is race fit comfortable and breathable. I use this line of kit in all races and all conditions and just add an under jersey when I need to. I has a waterproof race radio pocket in the centre pocket that can be used for a phone or whatever you choose. The are just the right length. I wear a medium and am pretty lean but the grippers hold the shorts in a good place with no saggy bits. The jerseys arms are also a good length, I have found other brands arms too short and after them ride up they become uncomfortable but you wont have this problem with this kit. I also has some reflective features on for those caught out riding home at dusk moments.
My scott genius 710 has a carbon front triangle and 150mm travel front and rear. The 700 series is the 650b or 27.5 wheel size depending on your name preference.<br />
It comes with XT gears and anchors. It has the 3 stage lockout switch so it climbs like an xc bike as well as being uber plush on the way down.<br />
When the race season is over this is the only bike I use. It gets my having fun on burlier trails and long adventure rides. You can get the lighter tuned model that weighs in at 24lbs for a med with 150mm as well but I think the 710 bike is great value for the spec and its capability.
I use the Camelbak racebak on longer training days and some races. The vest that holds the bladder goes under your race jersey. It stays in a great position and it never becomes an issue. It can hold up to 2 litres of my go to hydration mix Alete, its a natural product that has everything you need and nothing you don't. The bladder comes with a long pipe that I have been meaning to to shorten so the mouth piece is in a better place for me. Great product to have in the tool kit for the training day or race that suits it.
Well with the dark nights just around the corner it was time to get some off road lights. Looked through many of the top brands selections but the price point was just out of my budget. <br />
Stumbled upon this light on eBay for just £14, figured at that price it would be worth a shot. Glad i gave it ago because its great! For the price you get a lot for your money, the light itself is only able to fit onto your bars or the head strap supplied. It certainly produces enough light on the high setting to let you go full blast on your favourite trail. With the low setting and the flash its handy for on the road too.
This bike is amazing! I'm short in height, and I've managed to find a bike that is truly nimble to ride on, fits like a glove, and eats trails like there is no tomorrow! Trek, you've done yourself justice.<br />
She features 29er wheels, 120mm front- and back-suspension (Fox Float 32), and shin-shredding pedals.
I love riding in these shorts because it's a great Aussie brand that aligns to our local conditions! They are extremely comfortable, durable, and good for all day rides.<br />
They feature a back-pocket and front-pocket to stash your keys and possible a mobile phone into; the back pocket means a lower risk of smashing your screen too. <br />
Dharco stands for 'Downhill Australian Riders Company', and they make some pretty sweet and affordable stuff!
