Maxxis, Schwalbe and Kenda Roll Out New Tires - Eurobike 2017
Just did a weekend d of tire testing. The hellcat was awful but the Honey badger was epic. Can't wait for it to come in a 2.6. The butcher 2.6 from specialized was also fantastic, but I'm usually one to go for a heavier casing when possible. Cushcore arrived today. Time for more testing!

Kate Courtney's Specialized Epic - Val di Sole World Cup 2017
Those wheel decals are custom from Stikrd.com We originally made her some to match the frame and then made her the Merica Eagle ones after she won at Nationals. I didn't think she was going to put them on her race bike but she loved them! Looking good!

POC Brings SPIN Helmet Technology to Mountain Biking
Seems logical. Makes sense for snow. How does that do with holding heat? Seems like that could be a pretty warm helmet to ride in as those pads hold heat. Thoughts?

Kali Interceptor Helmet - Review
You are totally right. That looks nuts. BUT after riding at least 50 times with it I NEVER noticed it. I actually had no idea until you pointed it out. Super comfy, not a concern

Kali Interceptor Helmet - Review
@sspiff: The guy who got Cs. Every time! They guy with Cs was probably out studying and building bridges while the guy with As lived in the school library pouring over textbooks with no real world knowledge. Look at all the best people in history... generally poor academic records.

Kali Interceptor Helmet - Review
Glad you asked! In my independent testing, I have found the following, among many other things: Kali: Lightest weight. LDL is awesome, but could be bigger to allow greater range of movement. I love the MAYA most, but the interceptor is great too. 6D: Bulky. More mass = more momentum and force in a crash, resulting in more force against the brain. Also, the elastic hourglass pieces wind up in a crash and snap back. This "rebound" is actually the most dangerous element of a concussive crash. They do an awesome job with their "shear-off" visor bolts, eliminating risks of a visor catching on an obstacle. Leatt: Similar to Kali LDL with their "turbine" bits. Unfortunately the plastic spikes that hold them in are painful in a crash. They are awesome and share tons of testing data with full transparency. MIPS: The biggest joke around. Doesn't work in real world test. A cheap gimmick that can be added to almost any helmet for cheap and allow companies to charge $25 more per helmet. It doesn't work. A play on your fears for CASH. Heres why: 1.To work, the rubber bands between the liner and the helmet would cause the rebound concern, even IF they worked. 2. For the bands to engage, the inner liner has to stay put while the helmet rotates. To do this, it has to be fixed to the head by being either SUPER uncomfortably tight, or stuck to... say... a test dummy head. 3. The bands are so soft and have so much free play, that to do much of anything your helmet would have to slide half way down your face before they actually do anything effective. Yes, we can argue. Ive ridden them all, taken them apart, built my own testing rig with accelerometers, etc etc. If you want to make an argument, make it a fact based educated one please. Regardless of all, I'm glad concussions are getting attention and companies are making an effort. P.S. YES I RIDE FOR KALI. And I question and challenge them every day. The minute I don't think they are the safest option, I will leave them. So far 9 years strong with them.
