Small gear details can make a huge difference. The more you ride - the more you need your special thing that makes you feel ready. We asked some of the great riders what they can’t do without when they’re out on the mountains.

I always pack a pair of soft knee pads whenever I set out to go freeriding and I know jumps and drops are involved. Not for knee protection but more for my face and teeth, that always seem to meet my knee caps whenever I have picked a not steep enough landing. Combined with a mouthguard for the heaviest lines one becomes a superhero that can send it off of anything regardless of how steep the landing is beneath. After using them for a few winters I am now so used to them that I feel naked and my knees get cold without them, so they are always with me on the road!
