Brandon Semenuk is only 26 but has already won three Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour gold medals and started a film company called Revel Co. When he's not on the road competing, Semenuk is often back home on his five-acre property in Whistler where he has a 30-jump bike park. That's where we caught up with him to ask about his essential, non-bike, everyday gear.

The Space Brace ankle braces are the most important piece of equipment I use for riding. Without them, my ankles would be destroyed and I wouldn’t be on my bike as much as I’d like to.
