G-Form Knee and Shin Pads Review

When the trail turns truly tough and technical, body protection is a must (unless you enjoy picking at scabs for weeks). But many traditional hard-shell pads are just so uncomfortable that it makes wearing them a real chore. And when wearing protection is a chore, fewer people are inclined to do it, which means more injuries are occurring than necessary.
Enter G-Form pads.

RockShox Domain Dual Crown R Fork Review

Looking for an affordable dual-crown freeride fork for your gravity rig? Look no further than the RockShox Domain Dual Crown R.
The single-crown Domain R is a long-time favorite fork of freeriders, but RockShox recently decided to offer it in this dual crown configuration as well. While the increase in travel afforded by the bigger fork is one reason, increased durability and longevity is a factor too. Read on for more specifics.

Testing MTB Gear on the Road this Summer: Jamis 650b, Yakima Doubledown, Pearl Izumi Gear, and More

As anyone who has ridden with me knows: I am not easy on my bike gear. It’s not that I’m abusive or anything… I try to take care of what I own so that it will last as long as possible. However, I actually use my gear–and on a regular basis… and for extended periods of time. I expect it to perform, and perform well.
So what’s even more demanding than testing gear on my average weekly rides? Answer: heading out on the road and riding in the Rocky Mountains for two months–day in and day out–that’s what! Without further ado, here are a few of the pieces of gear that I have in for review that are fixing to be royally punished as I travel the nation and ride hundreds of miles (if not well over a thousand–we’ll see how much my legs protest) of challenging singletrack this summer.
