The Good: i got it cheap, very grippy
The Bad: Very unpredictableOverall Review: I bought two of these things back in the day when i used to race XC a little. While this tire climbs really well, when corning its very unpredictable, meaning i could never get the hang of when it would break free. I eventually got so sick of them i gave them away to someone.
The Good: Similar cornering knobs to the highroller, with center treads that climb better
The Bad: none thus farOverall Review: Corners similar to the highroller, so it pairs up as a rear trail tire with the highroller real well. Climbs well, and is fairly fast rolling. I have not run this tire in the front, thus far, but i like the highroller up there too much anyway.
The Good: Rolls fast, climbs well in the dry
The Bad: wears quick, doesnt climb well in the wetOverall Review: This tire is pretty sweet as a dry XC tire or rear slalom tire, wire the knobs wear fairly quickly, its a fast rolling, quick accelerating tire that you can find pretty cheap
The Good: Corners real well
The Bad: expensive, can't ever find them on sale, as a trail tire it doesnt climb too wellOverall Review: What can be said about the high roller, a tire that has been out for a long time? Everything, this tire is awesome! Square profile, hooks up in the wet and dry equally well, and is fast rolling as well. Tons of people shy away from this tire because of the drift zone that it has, but this is one of the most predictable tires ive ever ridden meaning that once youre used to it.... its amazing.
The Good: Cheap, ok as a rear tire
The Bad: doesnt climb too well, ive had the cornering knobs rip off.. not get worn out... tare off the sidewallOverall Review: I bought two pairs of these things back in the day. 2 2.5 DH casing, and 2 2.35 foldable. I never run these guys in the front, as it is pretty sketchy. The foldable ones are ok, but ive had the corning knobs rip right off the sidewall. Additionally the tire really struggles to climb when its remotely damp. The drift is pretty predictable though, but it doesnt corning too great though. The 2.5 i will pretty much as a dick around tire on my dh bike. There would be very, very limited applications of when i would use these when racing.
The Good: Fits Real Well, lightweight, simple coloring
The Bad: Collects sweat real bad, but i think that every helmet is going to have thatOverall Review: Plain and simple, this helmet is sick. Fits real well, completely around your head. The visor doesnt pop every two off like other trail helmets, and to top everything off, the helmet is pretty light as well. I would definitely recommend this helmet for anyone rides more than a couple of times a week
The Good: Dual straps // Venting // Side Padding
The Bad: Bulky // Bunching // ChafingOverall Review: by Noah Sears To pad or not to pad, that is the question. All-mountain riders seem to come in three varieties in terms of safety equipment; those who (except for a helmet) forego it altogether, full-time knee-padders, and fully-armored warriors ready for battle or perhaps expecting to hit the dirt at some point on their ride. I'm the in the first camp, unless I'm at a resort, I'm largely unprotected. Given my preference for pad-free riding (a preference that admittedly bites me in the ass from time to time), when the conditions do call for knee pads I'm pretty picky about what I strap on. I want something that Read More »
