Who the heck is Jeremy

Jeremy is a hardcore mountain biking web designer, and editor of www.Mudtrail.co.uk. He’ll be testing cycle gear for us and hopefully not annoying the ramblers. He also works in the outdoor industry to earn enough to keep him in brake pads. Jeremy’s opinion is his own and not influenced by GWA.

Specialized – Tactic MTB Helmet

After head-butting the opposite bank of a dry, slippery and sudden left turn I needed to replace my cycle helmet. Surprisingly I was feeling no ill effects except for a scuffed forehead which gave me confidence that Specialized can protect my valuable noggin so I rushed out to the local bike shop for another.
