Great for chilly to downright cold days on the hill. This sleeve can pull up over your ears if necessary and tuck under a helmet or hat, giving you a full seal from the outside. Merino is soft, light, wicks moisture, and always warm. This is my 4th Airhole, and 2nd Merino. It's a "gotta have" when it gets cold.
Just purchased a pair of these in red. I?ve had them out riding a dozen times so far, and they have not disappointed. Oaley Westends are very comfortable, warm when you want them to be, dry, and have the just right amount of pockets. The XL?s on a 35-36 waist allow me to tighten the adjustable waist tabs to get the right fit while rocking a pair of lightweight crash pads. Like their jackets, they have everything you need, and nothing you don't. I?ve noticed these Oaks don't have the bulk\weight of the ?number? brand pants that I own, even without the 3 in 1 liners. I've ridden an Oakley jacket for a couple of years, and now the Oakley pants have made a fan out of me as well.
Great binders!! Matched them with a Capita Black Snowboard of Death for a week in Breckenridge. The combo was very light, and the binders were stiff as promised for hard charging all mountain riding. A comfortable ankle strap is complimented by a toe strap that actually stays where you put it. On hill adjustments were a snap. And a good buckle\ratchet design got me hooked in and out quick and easy.
All in all, the FLUX SF45 is a great 2 strap binding that that has both the stiffness and comfort I was looking for. Well done.
Simply amazing stick!! The first time out, it felt I had been riding it forever. It did everything I asked, and I had instant confidence in it. The Mountain Twin has the hybrid rocker camber combination that most makers have put into their lines this year. Made famous in 2009/10 by the Rossi Angus, the technology just works. The rocker tips float in pow, and the traditional camber helps you enter and hold a line in the turns. What does this board have over the other rocker \camber boards: it's a true twin, and it has the Jones version of Mervins Magnetraction. Rather than pronounced bumps, this board has what looks more like little waves. A nice compromise, these subtle little waves give you that little bit extra when cutting through the ice or maneuvering crud. The see-through top sheet and limited graphics are awesome, and the board rides as good as it looks. If you are fortunate enough to find one, buy it quick.....
This might sound like a rep in sheep's clothing, but it's not. These binders are the best Ive used so far.
Ive had a long enough career to ride different models of Neidecker, Burton, Drake, Union, Flow's, K2s, and Rossi's. All make very good products, but for me the Ever's are the best to date. Weight, design, feel, and responsiveness is spot on. Note, I ride all mountain, so I cant comment on how Evers perform in the park. Thats for another reviewer.
I liked the 2010s so much, I bought some 2011s. Their newest addition is even lighter and easier to use than last year's model. Improvements to the front end include a single inside adjuster (big toe), and minimalist double strap, making them even lighter, and easier to set up. It literally took me about a minute per boot. After the first day riding, I tightened each ankle and toe strap one more notch; thats it. The high back is right in the middle in terms of stiffness in the Auto line. Bit of give side to side, stiff on your heels. The new tool free forward lean adjusters eliminated the need to tighten down the high back screws every couple times out (found out replacing lost pieces on the 2010's). The new ankle strap is cushy and secure. The Auto cable works flawlessly, with no pressure points anywhere. The set comes with a couple of spare ladders, and both standard and offset disks. Ive got size 11 boots, and had no problem fitting them into a Large.
The Ever's are the lightest and most responsive bindings I've ridden. I really dont feel like I have binders on. No pressure points, no bulk, just response when you need it. With the 2011 Evers, now both my boards, (a 157 traditional camber, and a 159 hybrid rocker camber) have Evers. Sweet.
Holy S%$%. The thing absolutely wreaked. I couldn't tell if they were stored in cat urine, or formaldehyde! Once through the wash took care of the odor. As for riding, we'll see. The thing is so thin it can't be good for much more than hidin' your ugly mug.
I have a couple of their other products, and like them allot. If I was lookin' around now, Id definitely put the cash into a something different.
These are the sickest boots I have ever put on! I normally wear 11.5's, but with a pair T1 11's heated up, they fit me like a glove. The footprint is easily a size smaller than many of the others out there, so no toe drag. The inside BOA rocks. Click it open for walking around or on the lift, and crank 'em down when you hit it.
Not new to 686, and was expecting alot. The pillow seems perfect for the cold weather; good insulation, and good fit without the sumo look. Should be toasty for those mid winter rides up the hill.
