Whitefish, Proven Here - Video
The wife is from MT - we head up there at least once a year. Backcountry trail riding is all-time in Montana. Huge climbs and endless scenery. And bears. Watch out for bears.

Troy Lee Designs A2 Helmet - First Look
I've listened to an interview with Troy himself - he very-genuinely tried to create a product that provided what he felt was better than MIPS when developing their new SE4 and said they just couldn't, so they went with MIPS, which obviously is carrying through all of their product. People love to pose resistance to all things new and different. Helmet tech will always be controversial, but I have no reason to believe Troy isn't trying his best to provide what he feels are the best safety products - he said it himself - speeds are higher, risks are greater and he's trying to recognize that.

Trading Motos for Mountain Bikes with Darren Berrecloth and Ricky Brabec - Video
@scott-townes: read what I wrote again - I'm agreeing with you and saying exactly that. Moto is the sport, not the motorcycles themselves. But seriously, who cares.

Trading Motos for Mountain Bikes with Darren Berrecloth and Ricky Brabec - Video
@jimmythehat: I'm with you - the mtb community calls them "motos". People that actually ride / race off-road motorcycles call them dirt bikes or, as I call them, motorcycles (go figure) - we call the-sport-of-motocross, "moto". Not the motorcycles. But whatever - at least the tone of this is positive. Both sports can mix and its ok!

AVS Racing Handguards - Review
I've always thought these could possibly be a good idea at times. I ride a lot of tight trails and with 785mm bars, I'm slamming my hands all the time. These may help. But i come from moto, so what do I know. These aren't that big of a deal to stir up so much PB controversy.

Shimano XT Di2 Drivetrain - First Ride
I'm not surprised to see a ton of negative feedback on this - resistance to change is human nature. But, come on. In my opinion, I do think that some engineering genius out there needs to innovated the drivetrain space and come up with something way better than derailleurs and cassettes, no question. I do think its dumb that we are running a stack of cogs that weight a good pound (in most cases) and even-worse, we are using a mechanical switch and cable to move them. But I still think this is exciting. My XT8000 1x11 setup is good and gave me no issues this season, other than a lot of barrel-adjustments to fine-tune. If I can get responsive, abrupt and solid shifting, I am open-minded and into it. Adding up all the parts I need, is still pricey and a bit ridiculous - that's my downer, but it is never cheap enough.

Ridden And Rated - Six Helmets
Is the "ventilation and cooling factor" subjective? I ask this because the Troy Lee A1 is the coolest (in terms of temperature and general ventilation) that I've ever worn. Back to back with my Bell Super, it isn't even close. The Super feels like I'm wearing an oven. Big fan of the Troy Lee - great fit, looks and ventilation, in my opinion.

Style for Miles: O'Neal Element FR Gear 2017
I don't know how Oneal is one of the longest-lasting moto gear companies. They've NEVER been known for innovating any trend in any category, and their stuff always looks so-so at best. As a designer this always blows me away - study your competition, look around, take influence, make it your own, and create something great. Their design has looked the same for 10 years. Seriously.

Giro Switchblade Helmet - First Look: Crankworx Whistler 2016
Bell used to make an open face moto helmet called the Mag4 which this looks a LOT like (without the chin bar). I like the idea of this. It all depends on where you ride and how you ride, but I am easily riding stuff where I am 15-25mph+ in big rock gardens. A major crash would be a joke with my AM / Trail helmet (TLD A1, which I really do like by the way). But coverage of mtb helmets is pretty meager. This is a tough category to nail in my opinion - so many people are worried about heat (totally understandable), how they look, etc, but protection level doesn't always seem to be a the forefront in a consumer's mind. Overall, a nice step forward.

Troy Brosnan's and Jared Graves' Specialized S-Works Stumpjumpers - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
I really like reading articles about detailed bike setup - seems like there isn't much of this and wish there was. I know an elite pro typically has a really unique setup, but it is interesting none the less. That said, neither of their setups sound all that odd or unusual. Dig it.
