As fun as riding is, it can be a chore sometimes. The more you ride, the more it seems like you’re dedicating bigger and bigger chunks of time to keeping your bike and gear cherry. Air filters always need cleaning, oil needs changing, gear needs washing, and last we checked, spokes don’t tighten themselves—the maintenance never ends! However there are ways to streamline the process so you can spend less time prepping and more time shredding. Here are three products from Fly Racing that help.
First off we’ve got the Universal Jersey, which, as the name implies, will perform in a variety of situations—with its clean styling, it’ll match just about any pair of pants you have. Rip a jersey and can’t find the exact replacement anywhere? Land shoulder-first in the mud on the first lap of practice on an overwatered track? Your buddy forget his jersey? The Universal is the no-hassle answer to all these problems and more. Think of it as the Nirvana album, Nevermind, that you know you have stashed in your truck, only it’s a jersey you keep tucked in your gear bag—whether it’s your go-to choice or a backup, it works flawlessly every time and always leaves you smiling. And at just $29.95 you’ll have money left for gate fees.
Next up is the Goggle Garage. If you’re a caveman you use the inside of your helmet for goggle storage. Sure it saves space, but it doesn’t protect your goggles from the dirt and debris floating around in your gear bag, which means lenses must be cleaned inside and out every time you roll up to the track, or worse yet, replaced because they’re all scratched up. Do yourself a favor and take a step off your pre-ride checklist with the Goggle Garage. There’s room for five googles and plenty of accessories like lenses, lens cleaner, and tear offs, so a fully stocked Garage should last you a few rides.
Finally, there’s the Kinetic Pro Cold Weather helmet. How many times have you worn that thin, ridiculous mask inside your helmet in an attempt to keep warm? Not only does it make you look like an amateur bank robber, but it comes with its own set of problems—it throws off the fit of your expensive lid, moisture from your breath forms a cold, wet spot, and in some cases it can even make your goggles fog up. And if you forget you’re wearing it they can cause some pretty serious confusion at the drive-thru too. Stop the madness by donning a helmet that’s made specifically for cold weather. No more freezing your face off, no more wasting time getting extra items together in an attempt to combat the cold, and thanks to the adjustable breath deflector, no more getting whacked in the nose with frozen roost missiles. It’s DOT and ECE approved, and at $139.95 it even offers up a bit of protection for your wallet.
