A little extra something: Dainese’s
Trailknit Pro Armor tee serves as a base
layer with added protection. The Pro Armor
tee has all the benefits of an under-shirt,
such as muscle compression, while also
offering integrated back and shoulder protection. Dainese’s Trailknit Pro Armor tee is
super lightweight and sells for $190.
Second generation: Dainese’s Trail Skin
2 knee guards were built as a complete
redesign of their previous Trail Skin pads.
The new guards feature a more ergonomic
fit, improved breathability and micro-ad-justable elastic bands. The Trail Skin 2s
meet European standards for impact protection and sell for $85.
Downhill-ready: Dainese’s Rhyolite 2
safety jacket was built to protect a rider’s
elbows, shoulders, back, chest and ribs.
The jacket uses Fexagon protection that
moves with the rider and breathes easily.
The sleeves are removable, and the entire
jacket can be fit under a loose-fitting jersey. Dainese’s Rhyolite jacket can be purchased for $300.
New and improved: Five Ten’s best-selling flat pedal shoe has long been their
Freerider. The new Freerider Pro takes
what previously made them such a great
shoe and incorporates so much more. This
new shoe features a synthetic upper that
allows it to resist water, breathe easier
and dry faster. The toe box and midsole
received EVA cushioning for protection
and comfort. And last but not least, the
Freerider Pros use Five Ten’s famous
Stealth S1 rubber soles. The new and
improved Freerider Pros can be yours for
Danny’s new favorite shoe: In sports,
such as football or basketball, players
often dream of having their own line of
shoes. YouTube star and professional trials rider Danny MacAskill had that
dream come true when he developed a
brand-new shoe with Five Ten, called the
MacAskill. The MacAskills use Stealth
S1 rubber soles and suede leather packaged in a casual look. The MacAskills are
designed to be stiff enough for riding while
also being flexible enough for walking
around. These new urban cruiser shoes
can be yours for $130.
These dudes are fast: Specialized’s
enduro racers Curtis Keene (right) and
Jared Graves (left) took a moment to sign
autographs for their fans.
Long live “The Chainsaw”: Devinci honored the late Steve Smith by displaying his
race rig at their booth. Every scratch and
wear mark was proudly shown.
Look closely: Brett Rheeder nailed
his first of two runs, quickly putting
him into the lead. If you look closely,
you’ll find Rheeder hanging upside
down over Whistler Village with no
hands on his bike.
