A Brutally Honest Certified Helmet Buyers Guide

Over the last few years there has been a quite a noticeable increase in helmet use at the trails. In the early to mid 2000s it was pretty rare to see someone rocking a helmet.

Zak Earley Bell Edit

I used to love going to the Dew Tours and seeing Zak riding amongst the all the trick ferrets. While everyone else’s only concern was spinning their bikes around as many times as possible Zak would be boosting to the moon and gettin’ it sideways.
