Motorfist Alpha Boot Review: First Impression on Snow

December 28, 2017 |

One other factor of the Motorfist Alpha Boot that impressed me is the size. The boots are low-profile, which is great because they don’t get caught up in footwells or feel clunky. And they feel quite light! I don’t want a bunch of weight dragging me down when I’m frantically hopping around trying desperately not to pile my sled into an old-growth Doug fir, so that’s a big plus for me.Read More

Klim F5 Helmet Review: First Impression on Snow

December 17, 2017 |

I read a little bit about the Klim F5 Helmet before I had the chance to try it out for myself for the first time. Klim is known to be a leader in product quality, but they aren’t relying on their brand reputation to push F5 Helmet sales. What Klim … Read More

FXR Elevation Dry-Link 2 PC Lite Monosuit Review: First Impression

December 3, 2017 |

The Elevation Dry-Link is called a monosuit, but it isn’t really. It’s two pieces (jacket and bibs) that zip fully together to form one. And from what I’ve seen so far with one day under my belt (haha), you kind of get the best of both worlds.Read More

Reviews: 2017 Snow Bike and Sled Films

October 18, 2017 |

The production value of this year’s 2017 snow bike and sled films is catching up with the riding, which has been pushing the limits of our sport on-screen for years. We have young guns pushing their ability to the brink. There are veterans finding new places to explore and new ways to get there. And we’re seeing more variety of terrain, riding styles and locations than ever before.Read More

Mammut Barryvox S & Barryvox Avalanche Transceiver Video Review

September 8, 2017 |

Some key improvements include an increased 70m search strip width, which can improve search times. Also, the interface on both transceivers has been completely redesigned to help simplifying searching technique in a rescue scenario. Combined, these improvements should drastically affect search and rescue times.Read More

Gear Review: FXR Elevation Down Jacket

February 26, 2017 |

The Elevation Down is puffy and thick for plenty of warmth, just as you’d expect. But it’s also got a few unexpected features that are worth talking about.Read More

Gear Review: TOBE Privus Monosuit

February 7, 2017 |

Opinions on monosuits are fairly polarized. People seem to either love them or hate them. But those in the latter camp are usually just that: haters who have never actually tried one. Those that have can agree that monosuits are pretty great, but the fact remains that not all are created equal. It’s time to take a look at TOBE Privus monosuit to see how it stacks up.Read More

Gear Review: FXR Attack Lite Glove

February 1, 2017 |

A thin glove is what you need for riding in the mountains. Sure, those wool-stuffed leather gauntlets that go all the way up to your elbow are nice when you’re gassing up at -30°C in Edmonton.Read More

Gear Review: 509 Carbon Fiber Altitude helmet with Fidlock

January 31, 2017 |

The Carbon Fiber Altitude helmet is 509’s top-of-the-line dome protector for 2016/17 and is available in enough color options to match up to any outerwear you may already own. As expected from a premier line of helmets, the Altitude is lightweight and strong; weighing in at just 2.9 pounds, the Carbon Fiber helmet meets or exceeds DOT and ECE 2205 certification standards.Read More
