GEAR: EDITOR’S PICKS
The Editor’s Picks are select pieces of gear that we’ve tested over time.
The Race Face Chute is made from Storm Lite Fabric, which is DWR treated 10,000mm; 5,000g/ m2. 3-ply, soft hand Polyester fabric. It’s laminated to a water-proof breathable membrane which is backed by lightweight mesh, and fully seam sealed to keep water out. The Moving Comfort Rebound Racer offers great support for the girls! Our tester is a DD and she found this sports bra to be one of the more comfortable bras she’s tried. With hook and loop adjustable straps, it’s also easy to adjust for the perfect fit.
The Specialized Rumor Expert is a comfortable bike to ride for long distances. The Rumor is solid on technical downhill trails and it was easy to get up to speed on both the downhills and the uphills. The Specialized Rumor is also easy to throw around on tight corners and berms. Rand Momentum is a fairly new lubricant to the scene. It claims to be eco-friendly and it acts as a cleaning agent as well as a lubricator and protector against the elements. With it’s sleek lines and unobstructed vision, the Ryders Eyewear VIA is one of the more stylish pairs of riding glasses on the market. The VIA also comes with photochromic lenses which quickly adjust between sunlight and shade, perfect for riding on the trails.
