Round Up: The World Cup Race Bikes of Aaron Gwin
Interesting that during his entire professional career it appears he's only ever been on Fox suspension

SRAM & Commencal Muc-Off Team Part Ways After 5 Years
@TheBrosCloset: That seems very likely. The team already has E13 backing the team for a chainguides, they might use E13 cranks and cassette with a TRP derailleur and brakes.

Review: 6 of the Best New Pedal-Friendly Knee Pads
Generally the knee/shin combo pads are not very pedal friendly, but you do have some options. Ion makes a kpact knee/shin with level 2 protection, Bliss makes team knee/shin, but its level 2 protection only on the knee and some EVA foam on the shin. Bliss also makes an ARG COMP knee/shin pad which has better shin protection, but are probably the least pedal-friendly option. Sweet Protection makes a knee/shin combo pad with good protection too. POC makes a VPD 2.0 knee/shin as well. Personally, I would use a dedicated knee pad and combine it with a dedicated shin pad. There are some BMX shin guards but most of them are just high density foam pads that don't carry a CE rating, if that matters to you. Scott makes a grenade evo shin pad that has D3O pad in it, and 661 makes a COMP AM shin pad with a CE level 1 rating. I'm sure there are more options, I haven't looked too far into them. Good luck!

Review: 6 of the Best New Pedal-Friendly Knee Pads
@diogocamacho: Depends on the sponsor. I know the Madison Saracen and Cube DH team use Bliss protection as their sponsors, and are likely running one of their ARG back protectors. Added benefit of those ones are they have level 2 back protection and are pretty slim. I think the GT team uses an alpinestars paragon vest, which has level 1 back protection. Commencal used to use the IXS carve upper. I know the specialized team uses the fox D3O back protector with an older roost guard in the front. In general, most pros aren’t wearing much for chest protection other than maybe some foam padding, or maybe custom kits with pads under them.
