Why We Created This Guide
wBW was founded in 2000 on the premise that somebody needed to assess the gear that riders rely on to keep them safe. Since then, the industry has continued to grow and mature, integrating technology and new safety advances into their gear. At the same time, the rise of ecommerce and the direct-to-consumer model means that many riders are ordering their gear sight unseen.
Our hope is that this guide will help riders learn more about the gear that they are investing in, as well as find curated recommendations based on our team's experiences and judgement on the best of what's out there right now. Learn more about our team.
wBW is funded by our audience. Our reviews and articles may contain affiliate links that earn us a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking them.
