Endura’s MT500 helmet is their flagship offering and part of their MT500 trail performance lineup, where a no-compromise on features, comfort and safety is sought after for this helmet. Endura chose to divert from the path of MIPS and chose to incorporate the relatively new Koroyd technology to improve the safety of the MT500 helmet to a more ambitious level.

As budget GPS units have to compete with smartphones, they need some features to add value. The Bryton Rider 330 has a battery life of 36 hours, can follow GPS routes and supports ANT+ to do so. It’s small and with 54grams not that heavy to carry around. The Bryton Rider 330 has been on my bike for the past year for most of my rides and accumulated 4452km of on- and off-road riding. It’s still going still going strong, but there are a few caveats you should know of.

You might shout to get hikers out of the way or just blast right past them. But there’s also a politer way, a way that the next time he sees a mountain biker, he doesn’t poke a stick in your front wheel.

A high-volume pump that comes with a digital pressure gauge is rarely seen on mini pumps. The Lezyne Digital Alloy Drive should be a quick, accurate and portable pump for those inconvenient moments during your mountain bike rides. Making sure that you continue your ride in no time with optimum tire pressures. With the classic Lezyne Alloy Drive as base for this digital version, the bar is set high.

Crankbrothers pedals are well known for their mud shedding capabilities, but also have a bad reputation in terms of reliability. That is why, since 2016, they have introduced new bearings and seals for all pedals. So, in order to check if it’s actually is an improvement, it was time for a long-term review. So after almost 4300km, 2 visits to a bike park and 6 XC races, its time to look back and see how well they managed.

Having a cool drink during summer is something that you can achieve with ice, but insulated bottles keep your drink cool for longer. Camelbak Podium Chill claims to keep your drink cool twice as long as a regular bottle, but can it deliver and how much cooler is your drink?
