The 2FO Roost Clip brings a casual, relaxed vibe with all the right DNA to get sendy on the bike.

Recon 2.0 Mountain Bike Shoes

Inspired by S-Works Recon, with Body Geometry comfort and efficiency, Recon 2.0 puts all that performance within easy reach. To create traction off the bike in wet or dry, gravel or dirt, we’ve covered the nylon outsole with our SlipNot compound. If the traction's needed in the wet, you can also rest easy knowing the XPEL mesh used through the Recon 2.0 won’t get bogged down with water and will dry exceptionally quickly. No more wet shoes the morning after a wet ride. Buy here!

Continental Lightweight Trail MTB Tires. For the skilled, acceleration addicted XC/tailer racer.

Cut to the chase with the lightest, fastest trail tire combination from Continental. The Cross King tread pattern rolls race fast in the center but start biting as soon as you bank into a turn. The 2.2 carcass keeps weight to a minimum for maximum acceleration, slots into skinny clearance framers and cuts through the dirtiest conditions for impressive bite however wet the trail gets. There is still enough volume to carry speed through rubble and bumps and the ProTection carcass will shrug off the sharpest rocks for dependable day after day speed.

Stumpjumper Expert

With the all-new Stumpjumper Expert, we've bottled up that "new bike day" feeling and put it into a radical new trail bike so agile, so lively, so in-tune with the trail, that it feels like an extension of your body. Levitate up the climbs. Decimate the descents. The Stumpjumper Expert is going to make you rethink how a trail bike should ride. Buy here!

Stumpjumper EVO Alloy Comp

Let's get something clear, the Stumpjumper EVO Alloy isn't a "normal" trail bike. It's built to get gnarly, plain and simple. Featuring the same all-new design as its carbon brethren—including an adjustable head tube angle, 150mm of performance tuned travel, the adaptability of S-Sizing, and SWAT™ Door integration—in a lightweight yet tough M5 Alloy chassis, you're going to be able to bomb down trails that you thought you couldn't touch without a full-blown DH rig.

Spec’d with a no-fuss SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, bomber 30mm-wide alloy wheels, and plush Fox FLOAT Performance suspension, there’s no question the Stumpjumper EVO Comp Alloy is dressed to shred.

Epic EVO Comp

Lightweight yet stiff. Capable yet efficient. Fun yet focused. Hell, if Goldilocks ever wanted to drop you, our money’s on her picking an Epic EVO Comp to do the job.

While the Epic EVO sees a seemingly modest 20-millimeter increase in suspension travel up front over its Epic stablemate and just 6-millimeters out back, we’ve worked overtime to make sure it’s been implemented in a way that’ll have you saying ‘Whoa!’ as soon as you hit your first stretch of singletrack.

Keeping the Epic EVO Comp just right is a well-balanced component mix featuring powerful four-piston SRAM G2 RS brakes, an X-Fusion Manic dropper, and RockShox SID Select fork.

Apparel

The All-New Giro Latch Shoe

Go fast, get loose and stay in control with Giro’s all-new Latch Shoe. A patent-pending, slow-rebound Mute Foam midsole cuts out the trail chatter that can bounce you off the pedals and cause fatigue while an innovative new Tack Rubber and Gamma tread pattern combine to deliver superior grip. With a fast-drying microfiber upper and durable Rockprint reinforcement, the Latch has gone on a diet and is over 100 grams lighter than Giro’s previous top-of-the-line flat pedal shoe. The result is your best connection to the trail ever. Learn more about the Latch Shoe through the link HERE
