GEAR OF THE WEEK

Sweet Protection | Trailblazer MIPS

The bike craze during the pandemic has more people out on singletrack and dirt paths, which is a very good thing. And a reliable helmet is mandatory gear. Built with a four-piece shell that makes it stronger and MIPS technology which lessens the chance of a concussion by better distributing impact, this is a brain bucket you can count on. Plus, the adjustable visor and plenty of ventilation make it comfortable on the ride.
