Bell Helmets Super 2R MIPS-Equipped

True all-mountain performance is all about adaptability. It’s about being prepared to tackle any off-road challenge with confidence, comfort and style. With its game-changing removable chin-bar, the Super 2R is two helmets in one. Remove and stow the chin-bar in your pack or on your rack on long climbs, then lock it in place when you’re ready to rip more aggressive terrain. It’s a quick and easy 1-2-3 set-up. Add in Overbrow Ventilation, TAG fit system and a new breakaway camera mount, and you have everything you need to conquer all-mountain terrain. MIPS technology adds extra protection for your noggin. MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, which is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. All tech talk aside, what we found extraordinary about this helmet is how comfortable it is, and its ease of use. The fit dialed in *just right* and it is remarkably light for how sturdy and secure it feels. The chin-bar is a snap (literally!) to put on and take off, and the design and production quality is clearly top-notch.

A Beer Worth Earning: Saint Archer Pale Ale

beer_210266Saint Archer is a San Diego brewery combining California extreme sports culture with California capitalism. Founded way back in 2013, Saint Archer has partnered with a number of snowboarding, surfing, and skateboarding athletes to promote their brewery.  An estimated three million dollars has funded an aggressive expansion of its distribution footprint throughout California and beyond. It’s even rumored to in discussions to be acquired by corporate beer giant MillerCoors. Lost in all the buzz is one simple thing:  Saint Archer actually brews some really good beer. A great example of this is their Pale Ale. There’s nothing complicated about this Pale Ale and that’s why it works so well. With fresh, vibrant grapefruit peel flavors from the hops standing front and center upon a crisp dry, neutral malt, it’s a Pale Ale hop heads will appreciate, while others will simply find thirst quenching. Maybe it isn’t the marketing, but the beer itself that’s causing Saint Archer to sweep this state. — Derrick Peterman
