Rapid Review: Giro Remedy Full Face Helmet

I’ve had this helmet for a few years now and thought I’d write a review of it. Pros: Good deal for the money. Tons of graphics variety. Uses a buckle instead of a d-loop. Cons: At 1000+ grams, it’s kind of heavy. Definitely feel it in the neck after a day of riding. Not quite sure the ventilation is that good. I haven’t used a lot of other...

Review: XPEDO FaceOff 13 Flat Pedals

Is there really that much that can go into a pedal? I find these top 10 pedal lists interesting as I doubt for the average person there would be any discernible¬†¬†difference at the level we’re talking about (high end high quality brands). The immediate factors include price, weight, and thickness. So with that said I went for what visually looks unique and the...

Review: G-Form Knee Pads

Earlier in the year I took a jump and didn’t land it properly – resulting in a severe laceration (as documented in this prior post), and ever since then I’ve taken padding and armor more seriously (prior to that I didn’t really care about the odd scrapes and bruises). My first order of business was getting the Troy Lee Designs Lopes Knee...

Review: Troy Lee Designs Elbow/Forearm Guard EG 5550

After my recent spill where I ended up in the ER with some stitches I had this crazy thought – maybe padding might be a good idea! After reading a lot of reviews on Amazon, JensonUSA.com, and BackCountry.com, I decided to go with the TLD EG 5550 elbow/forearm guards and the KG 5450 knee/shin guard. In short, the EG 5550 is an excellent choice. I’m...
