New Helmets and Clothing From IXS - Pond Beaver 2021
I really like the ratchet on mine when used for trail rides, I can undo it a click or two when climbing or if my head swells on a hot day and then cinch it up at the top before dropping in. It's light enough and vented well enough that I don't take it off when climbing or just cruising along.

New Helmets and Clothing From IXS - Pond Beaver 2021
I have the non-mips Trigger FF and that's what I bought it for, it works a treat! I get some funny looks rocking the glasses and full face setup on trail rides but with modern AM/Enduro bikes being mini-dh bikes it certainly feels safer when coming back down.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Time Do You Spend Setting Up Your Suspension?
I feel like they needed a "I take it to a tuning professional" option for each question.

Video: Urge BP Releases a New Lightweight Full Face Helmet for Enduro Racing
I've done a similar thing but got the IXS Trigger FF, it's another good option in the lightweight but vented full face category.

Bike Check: Comparing Norco Factory Racing's Sight Enduro Setups
I read that as the opposite, they would normally run XLs for racing but these bikes are their 'play' bikes so they downsized for more playfulness.

Video: ReTyre is a Modular Tyre That Lets You Zip on the Tread You Need
Could see this being useful for longer distance bike packing or touring. You're going to hit different terrain but swapping normal tires may not be always feasible or convenient. Run your slicks for most of it but zip on some gravel tires for the 2 days of gravel on some alpine trails?

XL Banshee Phantom

$2800 CAD
Parting ways with my trusty Banshee. This is a down country bike, it's got a solid part spec and will party hard on the way down while not being a pig to get back up. It'll do 50km+ singletrack days, quick laps of your local loop and save your bacon when you get in over your head down that one chute you've always looked at and never ridden. Highlights: Pike RCT3 140mm fork Carbon Roval Traverse Fatty SL wheels, these are lightweight and 30mm internal width Guide RSC brakes with carbon lever upgrade Carbon Race Face next bar 1x11 X01 drive train Reverb stealth with 1x lever Downcountry geometry: 67ish head angle, 75ish seat angle, 480ish reach (all are approximate due to a longer travel fork than what's on the geo chart, it's 68 HA, 75.5SA, 485 reach with a 120mm fork, See here for a full geo chart: 2.6 x 29 Butcher/Forekaster front/rear tires with plenty of clearance for mud Brand new Ergon saddle Condition: It's been ridden and loved, there are some rub marks on the cranks, non-drive chainstay, the odd nick or scratch in the anodizing (yes, it's an anodized frame, no paint chips or flaking powdercoat here). See pictures for a better look. Let me know if you want better photos of a particular area. There are no marks on the stanchions or shock shaft and the suspension has been regularly serviced, it works nicely. The wheels are straight and true, the pivots have been replaced with enduro bearings, it has a King headset. The tires still have plenty of life in them, they are set up tubeless. It doesn't come with pedals Sizing: It's an XL, will likely fit riders 5'10" and up, I'm 5'11" (181cm) and it fits me nicely, there is some seat post showing and it's running a 60mm step currently. Sale info: Buyer pays shipping, may be willing to meet depending on location etc. Let me know if you have any questions.

Review: 2020 Norco Sight C1 - Bigger, Burlier & Better
@DHhack: If you look at the size chart for the Sight it only goes up to 6'3", at just under 6'4" the XL is borderline too small for you still. Maybe they'll make an XXL one day?
