Curious to know what your fellow mountain bikers have been doing to upgrade their rides lately? Well, you’re in luck. We’ve compiled the Top 5 MTB Products for the month of October. Read on to find out how you might want to spend that extra little bit of cash that’s been burning a hole in your pocket!
Night riding season is upon us, so it makes perfect sense that one of our best selling products for the month of October is related to lights. Mounting a light properly to your helmet can be a tricky affair. Sometimes it’s not tight enough and the light bobbles up and down. Sometimes it’s slightly off center and throws the beam off to the side of where you’re actually headed. And sometimes, there just simply isn’t a way to get a light on top of your head in the first place. NiteRider has an excellent solution that works perfectly with their Lumina and Mako lights. The NiteRider Lumina and Mako Helmet Mount features an extra wide base so that it sits stably on your helmet. There are two straps, one on each side, to ensure that you can attach your light firmly and not have to worry about your light starting to wander from one side to the other. With this mount, you’ll have no problems blasting down your favorite trail at any time of the night.
Wait, this is one of the top selling products? Believe it or not, the SRAM Eagle Rear Derailleur Chain Gap Adjustment Gauge deserves its spot on this list. Why though? Well, SRAM developed one of the best drivetrains in the world, but it’s only going to perform like it’s the best if it’s adjusted correctly. Have you noticed that your SRAM Eagle drivetrain is shifting a little clunkier than when you first installed it? Maybe your downshifts are a little slow or you feel your chain catching on higher cogs on the cassette? There’s a good chance that the B-screw on your derailleur needs some sort of adjustment. You shouldn’t just go fiddling about without one of these tools, however. It tells you exactly how much to dial in that B-screw for a perfect shift every time. And at only six bucks, are you really going to try to just eyeball something like this? It is well worth the money.
Yes, that’s right, another maintenance product is one of our best sellers. It just goes to show that our amazing customers love to take care of their bikes. It’s always a great idea to service your suspension regularly to maintain its buttery smoothness and the Rockshox Suspension Oil is here to do just like that for your Lyrik, Pike, or Yari. The 4 oz. bottle is the perfect amount to perform a lower leg service on any of these forks. The best part about it? There’s no guessing if it’s right weight oil for any of those forks. Just buy the bottle and know that you’re good to go!
SRAM Eagle, what’s not to love about it? Well, maybe it’s not the cheapest option. Thankfully, SunRace was one of the first companies to come out with a cassette that’s completely compatible with SRAM’s Eagle groupset at a lower price. To complement this cost savings cassette, we’ve created the SRAM GX Eagle and SunRace Cassette bundle. It’s certainly one of the best ways to make your way into 12-speed bliss. To make things even better and easier for people to convert, the SunRace cassette fits on Shimano freehub bodies. Don’t feel like spending money to make the swap for an XD driver or new wheelset? SunRace has you covered.
I think it’s difficult to dispute Fox as the leader in mountain bike suspension and the new 2019 Float 36 with a GRIP2 damper helps Fox maintain this position. It has loads of adjustments (4 way high- and low-speed for compression and rebound) for any trail condition that you might encounter and it’s stout enough to take anything you throw at it. It comes in a variety of different models to cater to your kind of bike, so you don’t have to worry about compatibility issues. At its longest travel, the 36 comes in at a monstrous 180mm travel for 27.5 and 170mm for 29ers, so you know that this fork is ready to throw down. This drool-worthy fork should absolutely be at the top of your list when considering your next bike upgrade.
So there they are! Our top selling products for the month of October made this list for good reason. Whether you’re getting your bike ready and set up for some winter riding, or just simply looking to bring your bike up to date with some seriously high-performance products, none of these top sellers will leave you asking for more....at least until next month.
