Hey There . what about MTB Apparel/Protection Products from Alpinestars ?
Well I started riding BMX Race when I was 6….Back in the day… 12 years ago… you weren’t able to get kid MX or Mtb Gear that easily in Germany. Leading to me riding in Hard Shell Knights Armor a good two sizes too big with an XS males Jersey tucked over the armor and into my trousers. It was a ridiculous sight that much I can promise you.
I went from Rocking gym shorts and a water bottle on frame to cotton cargo pants courtesy of Old Navy and a dakin backpack w/ water blatter … that lasted about 2 years and then went back to some Nike/ Adidas Gym shorts and kept the daikin backpack… never looked back.If I’m riding in the winter, I’ll wear a Nike underarmor type top and bottom, if I need a coat. I’ve got a nice ol’ waterproof Northface that I traded for (6 oranges and a pair of beat up vintage velcro’s … college man…). I’ve got some old elbow and forearm, knee and shin protective gear that is good for taking on the zombie apocalypse, and a pair of riding gloves with knuckle protectors (they are so old I don’t even see the brand anymore), in the event you get into it with a tree. I wouldn’t mind updating the of the protective gear, but I’m not down with dropping more than a hondo on riding gear.
Back in the 90’s I wore a full V-TOP body armour for DH. Was made in Quebec and super protective… and horribly hot!
Hey everyone, could you please go check out are new MTB channel! Me and my friends are trying to start it up so i sub would be appreciated!
Im poor only gloves and trashy full face.
fox ranger are comfortable but they last about a week.
Hi from France !
Thanks very much…beautiful girl showing us very good stuffs…perfect video
Bought the ranger gloves and they are just terrible
I have permanent abrasion scars from Roach pads circa 2000. That’s just from trying them on and walking around the bike shop….
Did fox fix their seams tearing on their velcro gloves?
Nice Cap 👌👌😜😜
Mountain biking is the new golf; it’s a doctors sport. Don’t disgrace the trails with your sub-$3000 bike and regular clothes. Stay at home plebs
nice little video
That Jacket is 280$ is there something that I’m missing about it? Like 280$!?
280 bucks for a rain jacket? Damn and i thought Patagonia was expensive
sucks the leopard shirt is only womens 🙁
Got a sweet Fox rain gear from 1999. Blue pants with matching pullover jacket. Still rock it today
Back in the day…. Mid 00’s: full face, moto gloves, jeans, moto Knee protection, hiking shoes.
Meh gear at silly prices.
Those stuff almost the same feature every year and yet it’s costly than bike gear.
Yeah I’d never run a bum bag like that, I have one but my water bottle is on the bike and my other gear goes in the bag
"9 years ago"… try 29 years ago. You thought 9 years ago was bad, buy yourself a time machine.
Is there a knee + shin pad combo that anyone recommends? I use knee pads and lizard skin shin pads. Looking to get one pad that covers both
I was teaching a couple how to snowboard and the husband had previously broken his back when he fell over hiking due to carrying a bottle in a bumbag similar to that
Let’s see. Bought some pads for my booty on clearance at REI. Bought my shorts for $15 from Costco. Paid $8 for a long sleeve running shirt from Kohl’s. Baby, I’m set!
Pond beaver eh?
Reminds me of an ex….
Imagine paying the same for a shorts as for an helmet… that’s crazy
I know it’s only a quick overview, but oftentimes it’s the only opportunity for us to actually seeing the details of the products before purchase. I’d like to see closeup detail of the inside of every helmet, which i consider retarded that it’s not present on manufacturers website. How the vents are organised, if there are any channels front to back, how the rear loop is mounted and adjusted, does it wrap around forehead, what’s the spacing if it does. Mips is an obstruction but it’s still possible to show some details or present mips free helmet only. Same with pads, details details, how they form while standing, how shorts rest on them, catch or not, maybe 3/4 or full trousers too. So many opportunities to make videos like this desirable and sure, long lasting hits for people to watch in years to come as the apparel, pads helmets are not yet a yearly occurance.
I’m a big fan of hard shell + padding in my knee and elbow pads. After falling directly onto rocks with my knee and shins, and only being mildly bruised on one knee rather than having broken bones, I’m glad I had more than just foam.
the duffel and fanny pack are the same price
Baggy nylon jackets and short shorts
Thought for a minute i was watching QVC 🙄
I love Chapetta. She’s great!!!
US dollars again? Pink bike has officially sold out to the American audience. Disappointing.
If you like that RaceFace duffle bag, look instead into the ‘Kokotat Dirt Bag Gear Bag’. Same features and same price but much larger at 90L. It’s built for whitewater kayakers and their wet, heavy gear so it should handle mtn bikers gear without a hitch. Prime example how everything in mtn biking is priced out of this world.
Can someone please tell me why “biking” shorts cost so much??
Nice video and cool products !!
The "Bumbags" are nice the only reason I don’t use one is when I am doing my superman’s over the bars I like the back protection a backpack offers even if its only the bladder full of water it helps soften my landings , working on it though !
Thanks for the gear review.
Any chance of reviewing the BUDS MTB Travel Bag please? They say it’s the only MTB travel bag that leaves the rear wheel, handlebars and seat in place (front wheel ONLY item removed) … which sounds awesome if the protection is good.
lol, jacket for 279$, are they serious?) ill better buy jacket from decathlon for 20$ and will be happier
What makes those gloves women’s specific? I didn’t know mens and women’s hands were different shapes…
The mtb accessory market is full of overpriced garbage for gullible fucking idiots lol
Am I the only one who doesn’t like this girl?
why is all this stuff so… so … expensive…
Where can I find you at
That RF duffle is asinine..
Why no paid promotion disclaimer? I thought that was a no no.
Roach shorts, hockey jersey, raceface indy pads, and 5.10 impact pros.
