Tested: LifeProof Bike and Bar Mount

Smart phones are unbelievably cool chunks of mobile technology. The question is this: How do you actually mount them to your bike? It’s hard, after all, to partake of all that awesome when the thing is slumbering away in the depths of your jersey pocket or hydration pack.

Tested: Troy Lee Designs SE Gloves

06.18.2015

You put a glove on your hand and it…well, it covers your hand doesn’t it? I mean, when a glove walks into a job interview, it kind of knows what it’s signing up for. It’s a straightforward sort of gig...and yet some gloves still manage to suck mightily.

Palmer’s Picks: Specialized Ambush Helmet

06.17.2015

It took some time, but Specialized has finally put its hat in the extended coverage ring, literally. I wondered how the Ambush would stack up against lids from brands like Poc, Troy Lee Designs, Bell and Giro–you know, companies who's primary business is helmets.

Tested: Bell Super 2R

05.21.2015

Bell's Super 2R is supposed to be two helmets in one: unsnap a couple of buckles and it transforms from full-face helmet to cross-country lid. Sounds impressive. How does it actually pan out on the trail?

Alpinestars Paragon Knee Guard Review

04.30.2015

Knee pads seem to come in two flavors these days: stormtrooper hardshell and minimalist knee condom. Alpinestars Paragon fit comfortably within the latter niche. The Paragon, however, offers more protection than you might guess.

Kali Maya Review | Trail Test

04.08.2015

Review: Dakine Split Roller 100L

03.13.2015

I've lost track of all the cities I've towed the Dakine Split Roller through, but I can tell you this-when it comes to packing a godawful lot of gear and humping it from terminal to terminal without herniating a disc, it's hard to beat Dakine's old standby.

Review: 7mesh Revelation Jacket

01.29.2015

7mesh's Revelation is a case study in rugged, minimalism. It's a no-frills rain jacket that sheds water like a champ, holds up to abuse and breathes well. Just don't expect a ton of bells and whistles.
