SPECIALIZED AMBUSH COMP HELMET
Enduro shell on a budget
We tested the Ambush helmet a couple years back and were more than pleased
with how it performed. The Ambush Comp is a similar design at a lower price point.
This lid has a generous vent pattern to allow for good cooling and still provide impact
protection. Specialized uses its Mindset 360 fit system on the inside and extended
coverage on the back for more protection. This helmet retails for $120, comes in six
different colors and can be found at your local shop or at www.specialized.com.
One seriously nice pump
Every garage needs a good floor pump,
and Silca makes some nice pumps. The
SuperPista has been around a long time
and has evolved with the times. The pump
is all aluminum, including internals, with a
brass check valve. Silca claims this pump
is accurate up to 2 percent. The pump
comes with a dried beechwood handle and
retails for $235. This pump has a lifetime
warranty and can be found at
GIRO TERRADURO SHOES
Wear them anywhere
With the growth of enduro and all-mountain riding, companies have responded
with burlier gear. The Giro Terraduro shoe is made for just about every type of
riding, with a stiff sole that feels like an XC shoe and tacky Vibram outsole that will
grip studded pedals. These shoes use a micro-adjust buckle and have a snug fit.
Giro has the retail set at $180 with three different color options. Head over to your
local shop or www.giro.com to order a pair.
