This was the year that old things got a revamp. Everything with which we were familiar got even better, and we’d even argue that some products have seen the addition of revolutionary details. Often it’s the smallest tweaks that make the greatest impact, with new materials, new technologies, and brand new approaches and perspectives to common problems that elevate decent products to new highs. Some of the products awarded below are just so damn good at doing what they do that they simplify our lives as riders. Others are just so desirable to touch, or boast innovative features that make our riding safer or more comfortable. Then there’s the rise in sustainable manufacturing practices, which gives us peace of mind when it comes to riding and the future of the environment.
