Ensuring your ready for the trails starts with you. Of course you need a trail worthy bike to sail you down those rocky rooty descents, but you also need to armour yourself up just in case that spider web of roots are just a little too slippery.
Californian dirt brand, Six Six One and TWC didn’t get off to a good start of the year after they shared a sexist marketing advertisement for their MTB knee pads. However, having liaised with them over the past few months and seeing their active efforts to rectify this primitive “sex sells” method of marketing, we’ve been pleasantly pleased with their progress.
While there have been many similar offences caused by other cycling brands, we’re all too happy to report that times are changing… slowly, but surely. So with apologies made, changes seen, we’re happy to let bygones be bygones and focus on what’s really important… bikes!
So without further adieu, we trail tested the new Evo AM helmet and Recon knee pads on the trails of Wales.
