Jawbreaker Prizm Trail
More than meets the eye
Oakley has been in business making hi-tech eyewear for over 40 years and every year we look forward to seeing their newest creations. This year, it’s the Jawbreaker Prizm Trail that caught our eye. The Jawbreaker is designed with large air-ports strategically place around the lens to ensure plenty of air flow which will help stop “lens fogging”. Oakley added their Switchlock lens technology to the Prizm which makes swapping out lenses a breeze. If you need to make changes with the earsock lengths, they got that covered as well. Just flip up the earsock latch and slide the arm, that’s it. The Jawbreaker is also loaded with the Prizm lens, which helps maximize the light transmission which ensures better contrast and enhances visibility. The Jawbreaker is available in several different frame colors and you have five different lenses to choose from. Jawbreaker’s retail for $210 and you can pick them up here at www.oakley.com.
SPECIALIZED AMBUSH COMP HELMET
Enduro shell on a budget
We tested the Ambush helmet a couple years back and were more than pleased with how it performed. The Ambush Comp is a similar design at a lower price point. This lid has a generous vent pattern to allow for good cooling and still provide impact protection. Specialized uses its Mindset 360 fit system on the inside and extended coverage on the back for more protection. This helmet retails for $120, comes in six different colors and can be found at your local shop or at www.specialized.com.
GIRO TERRADURO SHOES
Wear them anywhere
With the growth of enduro and all-mountain riding, companies have responded with burlier gear. The Giro Terraduro shoe is made for just about every type of riding, with a stiff sole that feels like an XC shoe and tacky Vibram outsole that will grip studded pedals. These shoes use a micro-adjust buckle and have a snug fit. Giro has the retail set at $180 with three different color options. Head over to your local shop or www.giro.com to order a pair.
SILCA SUPERPISTA FLOOR PUMP
One seriously nice pump
Every garage needs a good floor pump, and Silca makes some nice pumps. The SuperPista has been around a long time and has evolved with the times. The pump is all aluminum, including internals, with a brass check valve. Silca claims this pump is accurate up to 2 percent. The pump comes with a dried beechwood handle and retails for $235. This pump has a lifetime warranty and can be found at www.silca.cc.
