Fresh Gear: 75 Hot Picks for the Spring Season
Now that spring's officially arrived, we're getting geared up for the changes. Snow is melting off the mountains, singeletrack and hiking trails will muddy and then dry out, rivers will rise, crags will warm, and even the most neglected back roads will be open and rider-ready.
It's time to hang up the skis, stow the snowboards and shift gears—check out the tried-and-true cycling gear we've compiled for mountain bikers, roadies and commuters; maybe invest in a feather-light (less than six ounces!) climbing helmet; test drive a new pair of trail shoes, or pick up healthy (delicious!) vegan energy chews. We've hand-picked 75 great pieces of running, mountain biking, climbing, hiking, road biking, surfing, bike commuting and paddling gear for your spring and summer enjoyment.
Of course, not everyone's feeling spring fever quite yet. For all the mountain people who are still socked in by snow, we've got a battery of fitness gear to help you iron out the kinks of a long winter—yoga clothes and equipment, water- and sweatproof custom-fit earphones, fitness monitoring gadgets and suspension trainers, to name a few.
