Oakley DRT5 Helmet
The Oakley helmet caught our attention, mostly because of the unorthodox eyewear storage system. Naturally being the eyewear monsters that they are, Oakley couldn’t design a helmet without a unique optics storage solution. It’s an interesting lid that features MIPS technology, a BOA closure system and a ribbed silicone sweat strip that goes across the wearer’s forehead. We hope to get one for review in the near future.
Smith Wildcat Glassgle
Part sunglass, part goggle, the new Wildcat features some oversized lenses for high-speed rippers, or your neighbor’s annual 80’s party. These shades offer more protection from debris and wind when the shredding gets rowdy.
An Italian brand with a long history in off-road motorcycle technology, Fantic has taken their passion for two-wheeled racing and is bringing it to the eMTB world. They will have several models available from 140 to 180mm of travel that are made in the same Italian factory that makes their dirt bikes. The brand has big plans for 2019 so stay tuned!
Pivot Firebird 29
The Firebird 29 wasn’t new for the show, but that didn’t stop us from taking a nice longing glance at this beast. It was looking mighty fine in this desert tan color scheme. We’re definitely looking forward to riding our Firebird 29 test rig back home.
