I much prefer the DD's on my D3 over any other system I've tried (most on the market) Easy to get on and off, even with gloves.

I never open it fully, just extend it til the button and hold the strap along the chin bar when I take the helmet on and off. When I put it on, it's just a matter...more

Well, we had it on some protos, there was a confidence feeling with it, despite having issues, maybe years of being trained a certain way. Semenuk did mention he'd like to have it for backyard riding when he takes his lid off over and over, but in the end, they all told us not to go that...more

We saw enough impacts there over the years, to make it something to think about...with no issues on overall helmet safety.

We came to the decision that for this type of helmet-was not the right system. We had it on early protos-but the Athletes did not want it on a competition helmet, very vocal about it. We had a different visor and completely different padding system as well, but the athletes were adamant about...more

Pretty psyched there is a little collarbone helper. I can't imagine ever landing on that spot, so might as well make it give a bit more for the ol' clavicle.

makes sense... but I think for non bike park scenarios, it'll cost way more as natural trails can be made pretty much next to nothing with volunteer labor from the trail orgs or rogue builders.

When the ROBOTS take over, they will not be kind to people who cut out roots. They won't be kind to anyone, actually, because they plan to kill all humans, but they'll be extra kill-y and unkind to people who cut out roots.

Coming from the pnw flow trails were always jump trails. It wasn't until I took my bike with me on some midwest trips that I learned what a poorly designed mess some flow trails could be.

Really I think we need to change the wording when it comes to trails. Jump...more

Sure, a machine built trail costs more than a volunteer built trail. But if you're a ski area/bike park that is trying to monetize land by getting more people riding it, than a machine built trail will generally pay for itself faster. As for equipment rentals, you're looking at around $1000/week for a mini X or skid steer, but the real expense is in the expertise to build with that equipment.
