Stay Safe This Mountain Bike Season with Backcountry

The weather is warming up and the days are getting longer, which means mountain bike season is here. To fully enjoy the trails this year, safety should be priority number one — for you and your bike. The most obvious piece of safety equipment is the helmet, but if you've ever crashed in, or dropped yours, you need to replace it. Luckily, Backcountry has the new POC Kortal Race MIPS Helmet in stock. It features everything you could possibly need in a helmet and is adjustable and designed to seamlessly fit with your favorite pair of sunglasses. But in addition to keeping your head safe, keeping your bike safe on the way to the trails is important as well. The Thule T2 Pro XT Hitch Rack makes bike transportation easy and dependable. It has room for two bikes, so you can pick up your buddy and hit the trail.
