The winner of the Dainese Prize Pack is Pinkbike user rsbsc. Congratulations rsbsc
Prize Details: Dainese has completely eliminated the concept of segmentation by discipline. MTB protectors and apparel are created not just for enduro, trail or all-mountain biking, but to guarantee maximum freedom of movement even during longer rides, in total safety. This approach is based on greater lightness, breathability and comfort when pedaling. Garments and protectors are designed for long rides, ensuring maximum freedom of movement on the saddle, from the steepest slopes to the most technical, uneven descents. Inspired by natural auxetics, the Auxagon technology gives rise to protectors made to pedal, which offer both freedom when pedaling and safety downhill. Dainese expanded the Trail Skins family and brought the Auxagon technology to a whole range of mountain bike protectors. The Trail Skins range is divided into Pro, Air and Lite. The Trail Skins Air line focuses on lightness and breathability, optimizing the structure of protectors to maximize ventilation and contain overall weight. It features a protective shirt with integrated back-protector, protective shorts, knee and elbow guards.
The prize pack includes: • Trail Skins Air Vest • Trail Skins Air Knee Guards • Trail Skins Shorts

Prize Details: Be the first to wear the unique Rootage EVO from ALPINA! The German brand ALPINA has more than 40 years of experience in the field of helmets, goggles and sports glasses. The new jet helmet will not be on the market until spring 2021, but you can already win it now! Not half, not completely and yet: perfect. The jet helmet Rootage EVO offers more protection than a normal enduro helmet, but is lighter and more variable than a full-face helmet. The three-quarter helmet is the golden mean.
Whether on the trail, freeriding or with the E-Fully in the bike park. The Rootage EVO is a good choice. The helmet construction pulled over the ears offers significantly more safety, especially on side impacts. In addition, the EPP, a multi-density material used on the ears, which does not lose its protective effect after smaller impacts, is also used in the rear area of the helmet. This also makes it possible to wear a neck brace. The fixed shield directs the air into the helmet‘s large ventilation ducts and thus cools the head. The Rootage EVO is the first bike jet helmet with size adjustment system. Protection, comfort and flow are guaranteed with the Rootage EVO.
Bigger, lighter, better, RAM. The new enduro glasses from ALPINA are a visual highlight and fit perfectly to the Rootage EVO. The unique design, the modern style and the lightness in both design and weight make the ALPINA RAM more than just a pair of performance glasses. The RAM is available in a half frame and full frame version as well with the photochromatic Varioflex technology.
The prize pack includes: • Rootage EVO helmet • RAM Sports glasses • MSRP: €259.90 // Approx $300 USD

The winner of the Öhlins Rear Shock is Pinkbike userkrissboo. Congratulationskrissboo
Prize Details: The Öhlins rear shock line up, from the coil-sprung TTX22m to our latest air-sprung addition; the TTX1Air, are all based on our twin-tube damper technology (TTX). One of the key elements of damping, is to ultimately keep control over fluid pressures and its dynamics, this is where TTX technology performs best, with multiple valves and adjusters maintaining controlled oil flow. The Öhlins' detailed design has been developed and refined over decades, for fast pressure build-up and a smoother response keeping pressure balanced over the piston. It's well-engineered design makes the damper more sensitive and minimizes adjustment needs to deliver superior rear wheel traction and control - smoothing out the trail and supporting your momentum. Öhlins have been refining and winning races with TTX-technology since 1993 when Nigel Mansell won an Indy car race using it. It can now found in our suspension for MX, MotoGP, Snowmobiles and Rally cars to mention a few.
High performing TTX-damping is included in all our rear shocks, it's your choice between a lighter air spring or a calm and controlled coil-sprung model. To find if TTX1Air, TTX2Air or TTX22m (incl spring) best suit your ride check out our Performance Suspension Guide; simply select your bike, enter your weight, preferred sag to see which shocks best fit your bike as well as our a recommended spring / air pressure set up.
Prize Details: We’re stoked to offer the newly-launched Spectral 29 CF 8.0 to one very lucky Pinkbike reader in this year’s Advent Calendar.

Replaceable thread inserts for the linkage bolts, for example, make the frame impervious to mechanical ‘accidents’ while double-sealed frame bearings keep things running smooth, even in the most brutal conditions. The Spectral 29 CF 8.0 is spec’d up, ready to shred. Bumps are ably handled by a Fox 36 Performance Elite fork and Fox DPX2 Performance Elite rear shock combo.
