ORBO's Top 5 Staff Picks
The iXS Flow Evo+ knee pads are a great all-rounder. We have used them for Enduro races, DH runs, and trail rides in Australia and all over the World. They are comfortable, lightweight, and offer great protection. What more could you ask for?
The Granite Stash tool tucks neatly away in your steerer tube. It is pretty straightforward to fit using just a couple of Allen keys. It features an 8-piece Multi-tool: 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, T25, Flathead / Spoke key: 0, 1, 2, 3 with valve core removing function. Everything you need to get you out of trouble if problems arise out on the trail. Available in a Road/Gravel and MTB version.
The Burgtec Shimano Direct Mount Chainring comes in a variety of colours and sizes to suit your needs. It is the perfect way to customize your ride and add some bling! The narrow/wide design will keep your chain on in the roughest conditions. Don't have Shimano cranks? Don't worry it also comes in Sram, Hope, and Race Face versions.
The Spank Split Stem does everything a stem needs to. It looks good, is strong, lightweight, and comes in a variety of colours. We like to use the 35mm version on our Enduro and DH bikes but it is also available in a 31.8mm version. Match it up with the Spank Spike bars for the ultimate cockpit setup.
We believe the Exaform 860i dropper is the best value for money/performance dropper on the market. It features a small amount of suspension at the top of the stroke making it perfect for hardtails, commuters, or anyone looking for a little more comfort. Made by KS (KindShock suspension) and featuring everything you'd expect from a high-end dropper, at a great price and, backed by our local, Australian service centre for warranty and servicing. You can't go past this one!
