    Club Ride Jack Flannel shirt

    Not just another plaid shirt, the Jack Flannel ($90) was built for mountain biking, with wicking, quick-drying fabric, a zippered media pocket, reflective accents, and snap buttons that are easy to open up when things get warm on the trail. But we like it because it doubles as barwear.

    POC Trabec Race helmet

    MIPS technology is revolutionizing helmets. Upon impact, a small pin breaks, releasing the inner shell to cradle your noggin' from potential harm. The MIPS in POC's Trabec ($180) Race mountain-bike helmet is one reason to love it. The other reasons: 16 huge vents for airflow, an oversize visor to block sun and rain, and a stylish design available in a handful of colors.

    Crank Brothers Multi-19 multitool

    There are fancier multitools out there, but the 19 ($33), which has just about everything you need to keep your mountain bike rolling down the trail, including a stainless-steel chain breaker and tools that work with most disc brakes, remains our favorite.

    Upright Cyclist Damen jacket

    Thanks to the PrimaLoft One insulation quilted into its water-repellent nylon shell, the Damen ($250) is toasty enough for the coldest bike commute and spiffy enough for a bite to eat or happy-hour drink on the way home.
