News: Single-Ringin’ It Gets a Boost


OneUp Components' new 42-tooth cog just might make ditching the front derailleur a feasible, and affordable, option for the masses. Here's the story.

Preview: Lezyne CNC Rod & BB/Cassette Tool


While no one ever intends to over-tighten their bottom bracket or cassette lock ring, these sorts of things happen to the best of us. Thus, I was excited to get my hands on Lezyne's CNC-Rod, which provides the more ham-fisted amongst us with a bit of extra leverage.

Tested: Race Face Charge Leg Guards


I used to think body armor was for park rats and professional freeriders. I wouldn’t be caught in the stuff anywhere outside of a lift-accessed resort. Sporting pads on a trail ride? It was, to my way of thinking, a bit like slapping a “Tap Out” mixed martial arts bumper sticker on your pick up or, getting “No Fear” tattooed on your neck or riding a unicycle in public—all just desperate cries for attention.

News: Drift Unveils New Ghost-S POV Camera


Drift Innovation unveiled the Ghost-S today—their latest and “most powerful” action sports camera to date. What does “most powerful” actually mean? In this case, better battery life, improved low-light performance, higher quality video and a ton of new features. Here are the details.

Tested: Shimano Winter Shoes


If you are a mountain biking junkie, winter riding doesn’t have to mean losing your toes. Not with the Shimano MW81 at least.

Tested: Mavic Notch Helmet


At 320 grams, the Mavic lid comes in right where you’d expect, based on the amount of coverage it offers.

Long-Term Test: Kind Shock LEV


Regardless of where the post is in its travel, it is rock solid. there is zero squish, and I didn’t notice any fore-aft or side-to-side play, even after countless miles in the saddle.

Tested: Specialized EMT Pro MTB


Specialized packed an impressive amount of tools into a lightweight (104 grams) and compact package. While we had one particular gripe with the tool, it's a smart package on the whole. Here's why.

Tested: Giro Chamber Shoes


The Chamber has a skate-inspired, street shoe aesthetic,which looks great but also provides function.

Tested: M.U.L.E.® NV™


I’ve grown accustomed to wobbling down the trail like a mobile Quasimodo and have never really sought out a more compact hydration pack. Until recently, that is. This year’s Bible of Bike Tests Trail/All Mountain test loop starts and ends out of our front door.Running my great haversack of a hydration pack is a bit of overkill. This CamelBak M.U.L.E. NV was the perfect option.

Tested: Topeak Joe Blow Ace Floor Pump


A bicycle floor pump that works well for seating mountain-bike tubeless tires and high-pressure road bike tires.

Long-Term Test: Five Ten Impact High


The world may have gravitated towards lighter, sleeker, sexier shoes (and Five Ten, itself, will soon offer that flavor of Impact), but I’m stuck on these clunky, sticky moon boots. They’ll rot off of my feet before I give them up. Here's why...

Tested: Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch


The Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch is a lightweight, breezy and comfortable SPD-compatible shoe that's ideal for riders looking to spend a lot of time on their bike...or even carrying it.

Tested: Kali Protectives Aazis Knee Guards


Kali was one of the first companies to offer a soft knee-guard that could truly be pedaled in all day without feeling like you’d strapped some kind of semi-fashionable torture device to your knee. How do they fare against the latest crop of pads? Here's the review.

Tested: Specialized Air Tool MTB Floor Pump


Specialized's Air Tool MTB floor pump delivers serious blasts of air that quickly fill tires. Enough air to (as advertised) seat tubeless tires? Sometimes. We'd still recommend an air compressor for that job. For all others, however, the sturdy and stable Air Tool excels.

Gallery: Eurobike Tradeshow


The fall tradeshow season kicked off with the Eurobike show, held last week in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Fourteen massive halls housed booth after booth of shiny, new bikes and eye -candy components produced by the smallest and largest companies in the industry, and nearly every brand in between.

News: Smith Introduces Its First Ever Cycling Helmet


Smith borrows technology from its snow helmets to offer the radically different Forefront all-mountain bike helmet.

Preview: Mission Workshop Acre-Series Trail Pack


We recently had a chance to get up close and personal with Mission Workshop's upcoming Acre Series Trail Pack. Here's a quick rundown on both the pack and Mission Workshop's very cool testing protocol.

Tested: Chromag Scarab Pedals


These are definitely not another pair of catalogue pedals. Designed from the ground up by Chromag's head brain, Ian Ritz, the Scarab is a high-end option for the discerning flat pedal rider.

Tested: Giro Feature


It’s only natural that a helmet dubbed the ‘Feature’ should have plenty of them. But at first glance, that doesn’t exactly appear to be the case.
