Video: Road Rage

10.20.2013 //

The premise is simple: go downhill fast. What makes this competition a bit more interesting, however, is that this isn’t a downhill mountain bike race; Red Bull’s Road Rage is a race down Colorado’s Guanella Pass–and it’s all asphalt. BMX bike, road bike, mountain bike–as long as it has two functioning brakes, you can race it in Road Rage.

Knee pads don’t just have to be part of the freerider’s costume. Before trying Troy Lee Designs’ 5400 Knee Guards, I didn’t expect them to be so versatile.

However, I was pleasantly surprised to find they never needed to leave my knees.

Preview: Mavic Notch Helmet

10.17.2013 //

Making a good helmet these days is no simple task–that’s particularly true of enduro lids, which need to be light and breathe well, yet also need to offer a bit more coverage than your garden-variety, Swiss Cheese replica cross-country helmet. The Notch is Mavic’s recent addition to the market. Here are some thoughts after stinking this one up in Sedona.

Before we arrived at Snowmass we spoke a few times on the phone with one of the marketers. With a modest tone, She said, “we only have a few trails”. What she neglected to say is that one of the current three trails is worth riding 100 times over again.
