Making lemonade

Nature shots, gear-shots, and an ass.

Random is random:

I usually have control in this particular drop, but boy did I nearly fuck this one up. Pants changed..

Seeing wild horses in the nature is a rare sight in these parts, but nonetheless that's what I saw on a recent ride. Awesome!

I use my experience with rings (ahem) when I install additional progression-rings for my BOS VIP'R 2 shock. The end-stroke is too harsh, and I hope this can make things better.

Trailside rear-shock switch, this trail demanded a good end stroke-support; Off with the VIP'R2 ...in with the trusty Vivid Air.

Tightening my spokes on my "belowed" e13 wheels. I hope that they implode into dark matter, that way I have an excuse to buy some other hoops.

Random! Redrum!

So got a few random shots dialed in, some very new, some a few weeks old, check it out:

Forget all about Rampage, the local trail got everything you need to make you own carved line of "insanity"..(the drop is in the lower left corner)

Martin on his new YT Jeffsy. Its being tested for air-compatibility ; ) From what we hear its a good bike.
(click to enlarge)

Jan about to hit the new platform drop. We are still testing its limits, but landing it outside the added constructed transition is definitely possible.

Karl on his GT, eating a bit of air. (and dirt later on)
(click to enlarge)

Tom on his now BOS-equipped Capra. And wide rims.

So that's all for now.

Shoe fetish

So...it has come to this: I am an unofficial sponsor of FiveTen I guess.

(I could do the same with my personal collection of 428 toy-trains, but they hang on my wall in my bedroom and living room, and it would take me a lot of time to pull them all down just to show them of.)

Review: 100% Aircraft Helmet

Finally got a lot of riding with my 100% aircraft helmet, and thought I would do a review.
This is the new helmet from 100%, the Aircraft. Claimed to be the most ventilated helmet on the market. This helmet is litteret with vents (25 vents actually), uses aerospace carbon and the air-intake ports at the mouth are huge, this, coupled with its low weight (1006 grams) made me go for this model. And looks like 100% vent all in, even the d-buckle is made out of titanium to keep the weight low. Only drawback; its also one of the most expensive helmets out there. So is it worth the money? Take a look:

The Aircraft helmet features an aerospace Carbon/Kevlar composite shell, and packed with 25 vents.

This helmet is just beautiful, pics does not make the architecture justice. Here you see the rear exhaust ports.

I'm not a fan of the d-buckle system, its okay, but I would have preferred a different system, like, say a magnetic system. Btw the D-buckle is made out of titanium, hell, even the hardware is made out of alu.

The air-intake at the mouth is huge. And one of the selling points for me.

Ive been using this helmet on extremely hot days in the bikepark, and its surprisingly cool and comfortable considering its a fullface helmet. The mouth port is big, and takes in a lot of air, and I really like that. The helmet is lightweight and non-intrusive with my Leatt Brace. You don't think about the helmet, and that's awesome.

This is definitely a helmet I would recommend, Its a bit more expensive, but worth it imo.

The Good:
-Very ventilated
-Very comfortable
-Use it for sessions as well
-Huge air-intake at the mouth

The Bad:
-Im not a fan of the d-buckle system

Score: 5/6
