Gear Review: HMK Action 2 Jacket

February 5, 2016 |

If falling down your ramp after you load your sled or riding in tight trees are your main sources of entertainment, you’re going to need to wrap yourself in something that can sustain these continuous horrible beatings. The first thing I noticed about the HMK Action 2 Jacket is how … Read More

509 Tactical Helmet Review

January 6, 2016 |

They say “only protect the brain you want to keep”, so I better wrap mine up real good, ’cause I only got one out of the deal.   Sledding has become a high fashion sport as of late and we are all guilty of buying that new Skinz bumper or … Read More

Ski-Doo T3: Is bigger really better?

June 25, 2015 |

In 2014/2015 I was lucky enough to ride a Ski-Doo 163” T3 from No Limits Motorsports in Squamish. I was planning on riding my 2014 Ski-Doo 154” XM for the season, but a last minute decision from all the hype of the new design was not to be missed! It … Read More

FXR Ranger and the Mono Suit Debate

March 26, 2015 | 4

There aren’t too many riders willing to toss convention to the wind and rock a mono, so those that do tend to stand out from the crowd. Were they dropped as babies? Do they have a passion for the colour purple? Do they suffer from some debilitating personality defect in which popular opinion fails to register? OR… is it possible that they are the enlightened few who have figured out how beat the system? Hmmm.Read More

Gear Review: Motorfist Trophy Pant

February 23, 2015 |

If you fellas put away an XL double-double in the morning like I tend to do, you’ll be happy for the convenience of the waterproof front-zip that zips down to the bottom, meaning that you don’t have to undo or reach under your jacket, or even unbuckle your backpack waist start to unzip your fly to take a leak. Sorry girls, not much help for you here.Read More

509 Freeride Glove Test — Good for crackin’ beers and digging out stuck guys

January 14, 2015 |

Last year I purchased a new sled, and being sick of having either banged up knees or wearing knee pads under my bibs (which I personally hate), I decided to add some Skinz console knee pads to my new rig. I have to say that I am really happy with … Read More
