Birzman Velocity Apogee MTB Mini Pump Black, 180mm
Description: The Birzman Velocity Apogee MTB Mini Pump may be small, but it packs a portable punch that most other pack-sized or frame-mounted pumps can't. It features the same CNC-machined aluminum construction as Birzman's full-sized floor pumps, with a polished finish and grippy details on the bottom and the handle. The extendable QR Hose slides into the barrel and extends quickly with a single pump, and the twisting Snap-It Apogee makes the Velocity quickly and easily compatible with both Schrader and Presta valves. The Velocity also features Birzman's Air Lock design, which means it works as a shock pump so you can adjust your fork while you're on the trail. The included bracket makes for easy frame mounting.

Lizard Skins DSP Grip 30.3mm Blue, One Size
Description: Lock-on grips rewrote the book on attaching mountain bike grips to handlebars, but they have drawbacks. One of which is weight, the other is unequal pinching from the clamps. And, in this day and age of fragile carbon bars, that can create serious problems down the road. Lizard Skins, however, have addressed those issues with the DSP 30. 3mm Grip. They use a unique tape technology to securely attach the ultra-light DSP grip to handlebars. It takes a matter of seconds to apply the tape and slide the grips on, the only thing you need is window cleaner that's used much like the classic hairspray approach. And, like hairspray, you do need to wait for it to dry before riding. Lizard Skins attachment isn't the only innovative feature of the DSP grips. Their exclusive DuraSoft Polymer provides an unmatched level of shock absorption and control. The Lizard Skins DSP 30. 3mm Grips come in eight colors and are 130mm wide.

The helmet's flexible frame meets CPSC requirements for noodle saving courtesy of a series of EPS foam bars. Those bars are connected with flexible material that's light enough to fold the helmet up for easy storage but tough enough to keep it together under impact.

Giro Selector Helmet White/Silver, S/M - Men's
Description: When Giro looked to up its aero game, it didn't just paste new stickers onto its Advantage helmet. It looked at the data and redesigned it to create the Giro Selector. This helmet is now a standard in the professional peloton and should be a part of your aero kit as well. Giro used wind tunnel testing to sculpt a shape that works with your position on the bike to lessen the drag coefficient. On the front end, you'll notice the eye shield. Not only does this minimize tear-inducing wind in your eyes, it also smooths the leading surface so that the air moves over it faster. An added benefit is that the shield also acts to block out excess wind noise. Two vents help direct the air through the helmet and out the back vents to cool your head. For those who prefer sunglasses, however, the shield is removable. On the other end, the tail of the Selector helmet is closed on the underside and comes in two lengths, 10mm and 45mm. Each is designed to work with your body position and the choice depends on how low your shoulders and arms are. The helmet should sit low and close to your back when you are in an aero position. To secure the Selector, Giro uses the Roc Loc TT system. Different from the older Roc Loc 5 system, the TT uses a spring leaf system to apply even tension to the front and back of your head in order to secure the helmet. The body of the helmet is an EPS-injected molded liner with the Giro SL Roll Cage system and a polycarbonate shell.

Brooks England B17 Standard Saddle - Men's Apple Green, One Size
Description: Urban cycling (like cycling in general, to be fair) is all about blending form with function, and nobody does that better than Brooks England. Its B17 Standard Men's Saddle is the epitome of this design philosophy, and Brooks has been making it for over 100 years, so it's not surprising that the company has the B17 pretty much dialed. The full-grain leather cover helps keep the saddle from overheating on warm days, and is designed to conform slowly to your anatomy over long periods of riding, so you'll end up with a nearly custom fit after a few months. The B17's steel rails are strong and absorb road vibrations, and the saddle's wide tail and abrupt taper help provide a solid pedaling platform while eliminating rubbing and discomfort.
