It only makes sense. You’ll be wearing a pack anyway, so why not integrate spine protection? And, while you’re at it, how about hydration? Thankfully, you can have them all at once with the Poc VPD 2. 0 Spine Pack 25. Generally speaking, there are two types of body armor: soft, flexible armor that’s designed to be comfortable and hard-shell armor that’s designed to absorb huge impacts. As logic would dictate, the soft stuff doesn’t protect as well and the hard stuff isn’t as comfortable. Well, now there’s a third kind of armor-POC’s VPD. As far as we can tell, it’s magic. VPD is a soft, flexible foam material that conforms to the contours of your body. However, in the event of an impact, it hardens instantly to provide the protection of a hard shell. It truly is the best of both worlds. Not only that, but VPD is a true multi-impact armor, so the protection level during your 20th crash is the same as it was during your first. This is especially important because a fall can often involve several impacts. You don’t want your protection level to drop off over the course of a fall, because that last hit might be the hardest. VPD is lightweight, soft, and flexible, so it’s some of the most comfortable armor that we’ve tried. Another reason that VPD is so comfortable is efficient airflow. POC riddles its VPD material with vents to allow air to flow freely in and out to keep your skin dry and cool, so you don’t roast in the heat of the summer and get that nasty, clammy feeling under your pads. The 25 liter backpack is built with all-mountain or freeriders in mind. The helmet pouch fits a full-face. The pack is fully hydration-compatible. A heavy duty elastic waistband keeps things stable while keeping it comfortable. Organization is made easy with a waist band pocket, a padded pocket for your phone or MP3 player, and low-profile elastic mesh pockets. the sturdy, ergonomically shaped shoulder straps are fully adjustable to allow you to dial in a cu…

If you’ve been looking for the fastest wheel on the planet, you’ve found it. The Reynolds RZR 92 boasts the lowest drag values, the highest levels of stability and handling, and the lowest weight of any 80+mm wheel on the market. In fact, compared to its closest 80mm rival, paired with a rear disc wheel, the RZR 92 saves 20 watts — translating to a roughly 23 second advantage over the length of an Ironman course. Now, we’re going to be forward — the complexity of the RZR design is deep, but we’ll walk through it together. To start, we need to understand the prevalent ideology in aerodynamic wheel design, and to do so, we need to understand drag. What is it? Simply put, it’s the restraining force that acts on the wheel when its direction of motion is counter to the free stream of airflow. Now, airflow near the surface of a wheel is turbulent by nature, and when it comes close to the rim surface, it becomes a turbulent boundary layer. This is the start of two kinds of drag, skin friction and pressure drag. Currently, wheel makers are attempting to harness the turbulent layer, reattaching it at the rear section of the rim. The reasoning behind this is that the system reduces pressure drag, but in return, the wheel sees gains in skin friction. However, this is viewed as a positive trade off, as skin friction has around a ten-fold lower drag value than pressure drag. To maximize this turbulent system, we’ve been seeing engineers create a constant, rounded edge at the spoke face. For those attempting it, it’s been viewed as a leap forward in design. However, Reynolds finds it to be counterintuitive. We’ll explain. You see, the science of aerodynamics has developed almost as a case of supply and demand. As aviation technology develops, engineers are forced to develop more efficient airfoil designs, and these designs take the shape of what’s called a NACA profile — think of a stretched out tear drop shape. In recent years, though, some wheel designers have started t…
