Gear

Omne Air Spin

The helmet that inspires the will for more. Whether on the morning commute or a long weekend ride, the Omne Air SPIN pushes you to go farther. Optimal liner density and thicker core protection zones provide ideal all-round protection for everyday use. The ventilation channels and low weight – inspired by our award-winning road cycling helmets the Octal and the Ventral – deliver optimum comfort and functionality on longer rides. It incorporates SPIN, POC’s patent-pending silicone pad technology. And by taking a whole helmet approach to the creation of the Omne Air SPIN it delivers superior levels of comfort, fit and performance.

Check Out The Helmet


Bontrager Pro Quick Cleat Saddle Bag

Since it’s not the most exciting piece of gear we use, Nick discusses his saddle bag preference. The Bontrager Pro Quick Cleat Seat Pack is for riders on-the-go. The Quick Cleat attachment system makes it easy to switch packs from bike to bike or take your essentials with you after rides end. Built with durable nylon to handle road grime from awesome adventures, its lightweight construction cradles your essentials through your favorite rides.
