Preview: Race Face Agent Winter Shorts

Not all shorts are equal when it comes to winter. Race Face’s new Agent Winter Shorts bring a few new features to the table.

All accessories

Tested: POC Joint VPD Air


The POC Joint VPD Air knee pads are a lightweight pad designed for cross country and trail riders looking for some skin saving protection.

Thule T2 Pro – Interbike 2015


The new Thule T2 Pro builds on the illustrious pedigree of the hitch-mounted platform rack launched in 2005.

Tested: Osprey Escapist 32


Bikepacking is pretty damn cool. Extending out rime in the outdoors so that we move beyond the brief, impersonal rip through the countryside? I’m all for that. The gear that'd let you extend your stay, however, has been lacking. That’s where the Osprey Escapist series comes in.

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.

New Montaro Rounds Out Giro’s Helmet Line


Giro's new Montaro full-coverage helmet touts breathability and safety features.

Tested: Bontrager Lithos Helmet


The Lithos has been kicking around the helmet world for a while now, but this latest model differs greatly from past versions.

Tested: Bontrager Ion 700 R USB Headlight


You don’t expect a whole hell of a lot from a light that fits into a tube the size of a lipstick case, but Bontrager’s Ion 700 R USB headlight packs a punch despite its diminutive size.

First Look: GoPro HERO4 Session


GoPro just announced it’s new camera, the HERO4 Session, and it's the smallest, lightest, GoPro yet.

Tested: Troy Lee Designs SE Gloves


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


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.

Leatt Airflex Knee Pads | Trail Tested


With a name like "Airflex," I was hesitant to put much trust in these lightweight pads from Leatt.

Magura celebrates 40th year in USA with Sedona shredfest


Magura marks the 40th anniversary of USA operations with its annual media camp in Sedona, Arizona, letting Brian Lopes and Shaun Palmer loose on the trails.

Tested: Bell Super 2R


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


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.

Sea Otter Classic: Product Gallery


The Sea Otter Classic represents the start of the race season in North America, and serves as a venue for brands to show their latest wares to thousands of consumers roaming the aisles of the outdoor festival.

First Impressions: Lezyne Mini GPS


The Lezyne Mini GPS is the smallest stand alone GPS unit we've seen, but the California-based brand has big goals. Lezyne recently announced the release of three new computers in an effort to grab a piece of the global positioning pie.

Kali Maya Review | Trail Test


At $99, the feature-packed Maya is one of the least-expensive all-mountain lids available, so I put it to the test to see if it’s worth one of your hard-earned benjamins.

Gear: Taipei Cycle Show


The Taipei Cycle show wrapped this past Saturday, with brands displaying a host of products that hint at trends to come, either at next month’s Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California, or later this year.

Preview: Troy Lee Designs T-Bone Knee Pads


The trend over the past half decade has been to make leg armor more pedaling-friendly, by ditching the hard-shell and using lighter, better-ventilated materials. The T-Bones follow suit. Here are our first impressions.
