Goldentyre Tires & Mouse

November 16, 2014 // 61,117 Comments

By Kevin Novello While in Romania I had an opportunity to try the Goldentyre GT216 90/90-21 front tire, GT216X 140-80/18 rear tire, and Goldentyre 120x bib mousse. The terrain we tested them in varied from dry, rocky cart roads, slick greasy trails, rock and root laced single track, and of course several steep hills that varied from loose gravel to rocks and roots. It was a great environment for testing these tires. The GT216X 140-80/18 rear tire has a softer compound designed to handle extreme [Read More...]

Zowa Goggles

By Kevin Novello Did you happen to notice the funky-looking goggles that we used with the Beta test? Those are the new Visor Goggles by Zowa and they are an interesting idea. The top fits over the helmet just below the visor while the base of goggles rest in the traditional location below your eyes and along the bridge of your nose.

In terms of performance, the Task lights up the trail and offers three settings that range from super bright to less bright and then a flashing mode. I used the [Read More...]

Enduro Spec Suspension

I am at a point where I don’t see myself getting any faster.  I am not the type of seasoned veteran like  Jeff Pasqua or Mike Lafferty that can meet and beat the speed of the younger throttle jockeys.  Still, I like to do well.  So rather than relying on twisting the throttle beyond my comfort zone, I need to employ all of the available options that help me ride to my potential.  In addition to improved fitness and efficient technique, a good suspension tuner is about the best investment [Read More...]

Vee Rubber VRM 300 Tackee GNCC

August 12, 2014 // 55,363 Comments

We are always on the hunt for an alternative to the Bridgestone M59/Pirelli MT 16 combination that work so well here in New England.  The rest of the country has a wide variety of tires and combinations to choose from but in New England, not so much.  Brian DeVries of LDA racing sells the Vee Rubber tire and offered up a pair of the VRM 300 Tackee GNCC for testing, feeling that the Tackee was a viable  alternative for handling the rocks and roots of the region. The Tackee line is a dual [Read More...]
