So, I want to buy a Scout. That video has me convinced. It will match my TR Scout nicely...

That awkward moment when you realize you're horribly out of touch but have an assignment due the next day...

Reply to Enough of that RAW bullshit, where is great cinematography? 12/4/2017 2:00 AM

I don't personally understand this argument, as there is so much content out there, it doesn't matter. Every season there are tens of team videos ranging from raw to super polished. It's all there, something for everyone. Budget is a big factor too, ... more »

Just here to clarify that the PGRT schedule is Windrock, TN; Port Angeles, WA; Mountain Creek, NJ; Tamarac, ID; Snow Shoe, WV (Champs); Windham,NY; Mammoth, CA. Likely the best scheduling we've seen in recent memory, with a dedicated crew of race promoters ... more »

Saw this when I woke up. Kirt keeps it real, all day, all year.

Wow...that's a hoarding mess of a very illegal and expensive nature. Shame if that all goes to waste - at least if it all get scrapped it goes back into the cycle (sorry, bad pun). Wonder if someone could could ask to take them on a charity project as ... more »

Mini Review Time! Worth noting, this was not a long term review, but I was riding the same tracks I’ve been riding forever over, and over, and over again so any differences are immediately noticeable. I didn’t shuttle lap, all the riding I did was trail ... more »

As Ice said, of that list, the TMacs. Not on your list, but my top pick is DMR's Vaults.

Queenstown, after it's rained. Rotorua when it's dry. Flip those scenarios and you end up with some of the wildest conditions imaginable. I also nominate my home turf of New England during the mid-summer, when it's that golden inbetween.

I willingly wear camo crocs, so I think these shades will compliment my exceptional style off the bike.

Purchased! Big coverage and a strong selection of spare lenses was a strong selling point.

Ah, 10-4. My misunderstanding. Coffee wasn't running strong enough this morning!

That's a quirky article. Sounds like GR was supposed to be an easy walk of a pet project (in the buyer's mind), but as we all know, working with BLM and local government is one of Dante's levels. While it would be impressive and exciting to see this ... more »

100% eh? I'll put in some research time! Great feedback, thanks!

Reply to Dope Shades 11/14/2017 7:10 AM

I went this route over the summer. They worked just fine. Problem is, the bridge was unpadded, same with the ear hooks, so they moved around a bit...but for $5 they worked exactly as they needed to for like 3 months!

Noted. Glad that feedback ended with newer is better performing, even if it doesn't look as good! haha

Reply to Helmets 11/13/2017 8:13 PM

Yes. Rotational impact is a huge factor when it comes to eating shit. 6D's system has elastomers between the EVA liner and the hanging suspension (the part that is MIPS in TLD) to create a third part of the puzzle, basically little mini airbags which ... more »

@grinch solid feedback. I won't get prescription lenses, but I'll have a look at those. Julbo was a suggestion earlier in the Autumn from a buddy, but your specific model suggestion is really helpful.
