Red, steep, bumpy, good. Mountain Bike gear test in Sedona

Arizona’s red desert hills proved a perfect cure for cabin fever this week. For three days, I rolled trails in the Sedona area under the guise of testing a new helmet from Bell, the Super model, as well as a Giant 29er bike, new Crank Brothers pedals, and more. Watch for a full review of the Super helmet, an enduro-focused lid with a built-in GoPro mount, next week. For now, here are a few shots from the Sedona action. —T.C. Worley
