John’s Summer Shred Pack Product Reviews

Once the high country melts here in Santa Fe, it’s singletrack 24/7 in the Land of Enchantment. Santa Fe is a MTB town with trails accessible right from your front door. Because of this accessibility, I put a lot of miles on my gear in our summer season. I wanted to offer a quick rundown of some of my favorite new accessories and apparel items I’ve enjoyed over the past few months…

Ben Frederick’s “Love your Brain” Fundraiser and Jersey Pre-Order

Earlier this fall we featured Fergus Tanaka’s touching story about Ben Frederick‘s fundraiser with Love your Brain, a non-profit organization that advocates for traumatic brain injury relief and recovery. Ben is also raffling off one of his custom Ritchey Swiss Cross frames. We’re bumping this today in hopes of elevating Ben’s raffle and getting more eyes on this project. The raffle runs through the end of this year and tickets for the frame and other prizes can be purchased from Ben’s website. Check out some more photos below!

Not All Shorts Need To Cover Your Knees: The Ornot Mission Shorts Are Amazing!

Have you tried looking for shorts recently, only to be bummed that they all look like they came from a surf shop in the 90s. Baggy, long, parachute-looking shorts are a bummer. In my attempt to find a MUSA, quick-drying, durable short I found the Ornot Mission Shorts and they quickly replaced my old go-to shorts. Sure, an 8.5″ inseam might not look like modern MTB apparel but I’d argue that’s a good thing. Shorts are short for a reason. Otherwise, they’d be called “Longs”.

These shorts feel great on a road, gravel, or MTB and even off the bike. They’re made in the Bay Area from 95% recycled nylon, feature four pockets, one of which has a zipper for extra security, and are gusseted to withstand wear and tear from the rigors of cycling…

The Ornot Mission Shorts are back in stock at Ornot with a retail of $108.

ORNOT’s Long Sleeve Trail Shirt

I’ve been wearing the short sleeve version of this shirt for a few weeks now and my only complaint is it wasn’t a long sleeve! I love long sleeve shirts for summer riding since the material wicks sweat and keeps the sun off my arms. Luckily, today ORNOT announced the long sleeve trail shirt, which is made in the USA, made from recycled yarn, is climate neutral, and gives 1% for the planet. These shirts are in stock now for $60.

ORNOT’s Short Sleeve Trail Shirt Uses Polartec Power Dry Fabric

With warmer months on the way, it’ll soon be time to leave the jacket at home and confidently roll out your door with a short sleeve tee shirt on. For those looking for a more casual look on the trail this year, check out ORNOT’s Short Sleeve Trail Shirt, made from Polartec Power Dry Fabric, in this new coyote color. Now, before you huff and puff about a $50 shirt, know that these shirts are made from Polartec’s nicest fabric that features a material called X-static that keeps your clothes smelling fresh even after a few rides. I’ve been riding in it this week and am very impressed. That’s coming from someone who only wears merino wool shirts, year-round. This shirt will be in heavy rotation this year!

This ain’t your normal synthetic fabric that stinks to high heaven after just a short pedal. These shirts are sewn in San Francisco and are in stock now at ORNOT.
