Kenda K-Rad Tire



The Good: Durable, look good & priced fair.

The Bad: Can't complain at all.

Overall Review: I use these tires as my street tires. They're grippy & I like them. Alot. Can't beat them for the price.

Black Market Bikes Killswitch Frame

“Worth it!!!”


The Good: Love the hammer link design. Easily accessible shock mounts & linkage area. Stylish. Easy to throw around & extremely functional.

The Bad: Could use a little more travel or another area to mount a slightly bigger shock. Was told I need a medium, but would like to have checked out a large to see how it feels. Needs adjustable drop outs w/a tensioner.

Overall Review: Handles everything you throw at it like a champ. Responsive & stylish. I can't complain. I've put it to the test & couldn't be happier. Great looking & great riding. Highly suggested.

Deity Fantom 31.8 Stem

“Hands down, best stem EVER!!!”


The Good: Well machined & designed, the Fantom stem does the job incredibly & securely, while still being extremely stylish, attractive & light. As with all the Deity Components, their quality, craftsmanship & look is impeccable. Don't be afraid to put on your devil horns & tear up the trails with this. Products designed by riders for riders.

The Bad: No complaints...

Overall Review: I rely on this stem for everything from dirt jumps to freeride & slalom trails & couldn't ask for more. Durable, functional, stylish & reasonably priced, the Fantom is hands down the best stem I've ever owned......

Deity Decoy 2.5 Flat Pedal

“Bullet proof & sticky!!!”


The Good: Low profile, light, durable & extremely sticky, the Decoy 2.5's are hands down the best flats I've ever trusted my feet to. Well designed, sticky & stylish, they more than do the job they were asked for...

The Bad: Like I've stated before about Deity products, I can't find fault in anything this company makes. Solid, no complaints.

Overall Review: Low profile, stylish, light, adjustable & affordable, Deity pulls out the stops on yet another stellar product. I've owned several pair for all my bikes & I have no regrets. Get some!

Deity Emblem DJ Saddle Saddle

“Good looking, takes a beating & keeps on seating...”


The Good: Durable & stylish, this railed saddle has long outlasted any of the competitors I previously used. Not that I sit on it much, but when I do, it's there for me. Gotta love the big emblem on the right cheek.

The Bad: I really haven't got anything bad to say about it. It's held up so far.

Overall Review: I've had a number of saddles over the years & none have outlasted the Deity Emblem. When it's time to get a new one, it will definitely be a Deity.

SixSixOne Kyle Strait Knee Pads

“Work well but need some adjustments...”


The Good: Fit well out of the box. Very comfortable, durable & stylish.

The Bad: Run a little big, get next size down for them to stay on a little more snug. Straps stretch after a short while, seems sooner than most pads. Bulky. Do not even try to fit them under jeans. Also, you have to take your shoes off to put them on until they get stretched...

Overall Review: These pads have saved me more times than I can count & the impact area holds up well, so I trust them. But, they could definitely use some remodeling. If the size chart says to get a large, get a medium. I've got big thighs & calves & I've had to fold sew the straps a time or two so they stay tight. For the price, they could use some adjustable straps to make them last a little longer or so you could loosen them enough to slide them over your shoes w/o destroying the elasticity. Aside from that, I'd buy them again...

SixSixOne Veggie Knee Guards

“Fit under jeans well & works....”


The Good: Low profile, durable, fit under jeans well & definitely saved me a time or two.

The Bad: Like to slide a little after a while. Straps stretch easily, had to fold sew them a few times to keep them tight.

Overall Review: Worth the price but could use a little remodeling to help them stay tight longer....

SixSixOne Comp Glove

“Sad they were discontinued.... :(”


The Good: I bought 2 pairs of these gloves 2+ yrs ago. Between riding in them 3+ times a week, wrecking, building trails or doing trail maintenance in them, atleast that much a week, & occasionally using them for work gloves (i'M A FRAMER...), I couldn't ask for a better glove. They have hands down outlasted any pair of gloves I've EVER owned.

The Bad: Could've used a little more padding in the palms. In all reality I don't have anything bad to say.

Overall Review: 2 pair, lasted me over 2 years under heavy, almost daily riding of jump trails, freeriding, wrecks, plus tons of trail building & trail maintenance. Was looking to by 6 more pair the other day but none in my size anywhere. Sad to see them not offered anymore. :( Enough said!

Fox Racing Launch Knee/Shin Guard

“Work well for what they are...”


The Good: Protects & fits well.

The Bad: Shin guard section is a little to long.

Overall Review: Tolerable knee & shin protection at a fair price. Could use a little better fit on the shin guard length.

Titec DH Team Short

“Tough & stylish...”


The Good: Heavy duty, tough, stylish & comfortable, Fit ok. Definitely worth the price. Side pockets keep your goodies out of your way well. I filled mine with removable, stiff padding.

The Bad: Could use a little more ventilation & some light padding in spots. A little hot in summer & the adjustment belt needs some modifying.

Overall Review: Purchased from Jensen for a extremely fair price & well worth it.
