Every 30 days we award the Top User Reviewer with a little prize. This month Jenson USA pitched in a $100 gift card! Vital MTB members WhiteBreadGravity and Carraig042 battled it by each writing several great reviews, and in the end WhiteBreadGravity won out earning the Top Reviewer spot. Here's a recap of his best:

Five Ten Line King Shoes - "The Line Kings are very versatile shoes if you want them to be; I've used them for nearly every kind of biking just to see if I could. They're best suited to the casual and gravity-oriented rider, who is wary of stubbing his toes on the trail. Seriously, these things have like 3/4 of an inch of just padding. 510 might be using us as guinea pigs for their prototype bullet proof bike shoes. I gladly support the United States bike-mounted police force..." - Read more»

Spy Klutch Goggles - "Motocross and mountain biking goggles are an interesting market. Goggles aren't exactly a vessel for aggressive innovation, and in a sport where aggressive innovation is the core of it all, it can be hard to lose sight of what needs to be done. Goggles are an area designated for refinement, and in the case of Spy goggles I have seen awareness of this. Their goggles are simplistic. I have run their Klutch and Whip models trough the paces in rainy and sloppy conditions, as well as bone dry and sandstorm-threatened conditions. The minimalism is indeed valid..." - Read more»

Giant Glory Frame - "After three years of riding this bike, and knowing it has been surpassed by it's 27.5 wheeled and carbon counterpart, I can say that this bike will remain valid for a long time. The steeper Glories remained on the trails for a long time, and I still see them often. I think Giant aimed for a bike that fit any type of downhill rider, and if you're not new then you know how many different types there are. Giant hit the mark too, creating a gravity platform that is cozy and relaxed, but prepared to attack steep terrain. If you're looking for a used bike, pay attention to the Glories. They are refined machines, and will take care of you." - Read more»

Troy Lee Designs Moto Shorts - "The outer material of these baggies is a very heavy fabric that very visibly explains the shorts' friction-fighting properties. Ever rub sandpaper on sandpaper? Me neither, but I assume you get two smooth surfaces fast. The black yoke you can see on the front of the shorts is where the comfort magic happens, and where the flexibility comes from. The inner material is sort of an inner-net, like what you find in swim trunks. However this net is meant to let the South breathe, and to isolate your pale thunder thighs from the gritty and harsh world out there. And it does a great job. My thunder thighs never once felt uncomfortable in the two years they've been hiding in these shorts..." - Read more»
