Choose Your Bike
Make the Most of Every Mile
Whether it’s your very first MTB or an addition to the stable, outfitting yourself and your bike with the right cycling apparel and accessories makes it easy to jump on and tear up the trails. Explore our recommendations for indispensable new bike gear for any riding conditions.
Safety first, fun second. Look, it’s actually pretty safe out there, but you never know what’s around the next bend. Modern helmets are more protective and comfortable than ever and are styled to fit every rider’s personal preferences. Also, it’s good to replace your helmet every 3-5 years to ensure it works as designed when you need it.
Wind-burned hands don’t make our list of great riding memories. Protect your paws from sun, wind, and snow with the right gloves. Bar mitts warm your hands and stave off winter conditions without impairing your movement, so you can stay outside without catching a chill. Lightweight gloves can guard you from calluses while staying breathable.
Don’t let a little mud get you down. Keep the trail out of your eyes with quality eyewear. Sunny conditions, especially in the snow, can be hard on your eyes, so make sure to wear UV rated sunglasses on your next ride. A stylish pair of spectacles can improve your adventures, not to mention keep you looking great.
Designed for off-road adventures, mountain shoes feature durable construction and extra tread for hiking over rocks, loose dirt, and wet roots. Shoes with clip-in functionality increase pedaling efficiency and prevent your feet from slipping around on the pedals while covering aggressive terrain.
Staying hydrated is key to a successful ride so don't forget to pack plenty of water. Whether you prefer to carry the water on your bike or haul it on your back, you can find the hydration gear you need for your next trail adventure. We have a great selection of water bottles, bottle cages, hydration packs and systems, and more.
