D3 CARBON MIPS

Is it the bike that wins

the race, or the rider?

Turns out it might be the

helmet – the Troy Lee

Rampages and Olympic

medals than any other.

When British saloon-car racer John Aley devised the roll bar in 1964 to save drivers’ lives in serious crashes, he probably never

imagined it being used to protect mountain bikes in long-haul transit – but that’s exactly what inspired the patented Db Roll

Cage in this bike bag. Capable of accommodating any size of mountain bike, the aluminium frame combined with an otherwise

soft-bag structure makes it surprisingly light, and, when not in use, it folds up to 35 per cent of its full size. douchebags.com

FULL-9 FUSION MIPS

Bell Helmets may have

a slightly amusing name,

but the brand takes its

work seriously. This fullface

fibreglass cranium

case is the MTB variant

of its award-winning

Moto-9 motocross shell.

TRUST PERFORMANCE

MESSAGE FORK

FORK TO THE FUTURE

Suspension so smooth you can ride

the mountain drinking a cup of tea

Dave Weagle is kind of a big deal in mountainbiking

circles. He’s the mad professor behind

the most successful rear suspension in downhill

competition history – the DW-link – and now

he has done the same for front forks, replacing

telescopic suspension with a trailing multi-link

(that’s the arm you can see behind the fork) that

delivers insane stability and cushioning. The only

shock is the price: £2,500. trustperformance.com

100% AIRCRAFT

CARBON MIPS

A fancy name that

describes exactly what

it is: a tough shell built

from an aerospace mix

of carbon and Kevlar,

with 25 airflow channels

to keep your noggin cool.
