Lucky for you, we here at The Out Of Collective have put together a little End Of Summer Skier Checklist for you to go over, as warmer days start to wind down, and help get you ready for winter!

It’s Batman vs Superman & It’s Shift vs Duke PT

Adam Jaber September 6, 2022

There’s Batman vs Superman & There’s Shift vs Duke I have to tell you when I first picked this title, it seemed like a stretch. But the more I think about it there’s a clear common thread, the movie sucked and so do these binding options. Now that’s not to say that there aren’t plenty of positives, but the negatives have been so blatant that some of them even have their own nickname. Shift vs Duke PT is one of the most talked about head-to-head match ups in skiing. The Marker Duke is touted as a burly more aggressive solution, […]

Ode to a Chairlift

Charlie Walker August 7, 2022

Ode to a Chairlift Gotta Get Up To Get Down Every year we lose another one. One of the greats. A piece of history that made us who we are. Yes, that’s right, I am talking about chairlifts. Each year, it’s out with the old and in with the new. Not saying it’s wrong entirely. And it’s not that I don’t get it. But, change isn’t always better, and change is hard. This summer, Vail alone will be installing 19 new chairlifts across 14 resorts in the name of “enhancing the guest experience”. However, don’t let them fool you for […]

Summer Skiing’s Shangri La – Portillo, Chile

Charlie Walker July 12, 2022

Summer Skiing’s Shangri La – Portillo, Chile When it comes to the world of sport, each has its holy cathedral to which pilgrims seasonally migrate. Football has the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. Baseball has the ivy of Wrigley and the Green Monster at Fenway. And as spring blooms, golfers and fans alike flock to the abundant azaleas of Amen Corner at Augusta. For us skiers, our hallowed halls take a more natural form. The mountains are where we not only commune with sport but with nature. While winter peaks and resorts across the globe are plentiful and posh, as […]

Review: OneUp Components 240mm v2 Dropper Post

Adam Jaber June 19, 2022

An OOC REVIEW: The Longest Dropper of its Day   Two months into running OneUp Components’ 240mm dropper post, I’ve concluded many things, one of which is obvious…it’s big. It’s time to answer the age-old question; is bigger better. The Post – OneUp Components Dropper Post v2 (240mm) The Highlights – Retail $229.50 (Lever add-on available for $59.50) Okay, so why does someone need a 240mm dropper post? If you use the word “need” loosely, it’s because most seatposts at full-drop still have a somewhat significant amount of seat post showing. This one, however, is FULLY out of your way. […]

REVIEW: Redshift Sports New Suspension Stem

Adam Jaber June 11, 2022

An OOC REVIEW: A Fresh Take on Suspension Products. For about a year now, I’ve been running Redshift Sports’ New Suspension stem. I never thought I’d need such a thing, but was I wrong? The Stem – Redshift Sports ShockStop/ShockStop Pro- $149/$249 U.S The Highlights Okay, so hear me out on this one, Bing Bongs. Why would you want suspension in your stem? There are suspension forks for gravel bikes or even super-light XC Bikes, so why do you need just 20mm of *bounce*? Well, because it makes the ride incredibly smooth, without adding much weight, or a need for […]

An OOC REVIEW: What’s the deal with Tecnica’s new Hiking shoe? The last two months, I’ve made a conscious effort to go on more hikes, in different terrain, mostly for the testing of the Tecnica Magma S Mid shoe. I’m lucky enough to have some really varied terrain right outside my door for this kind of thing, so with that said, let’s get into the details. The Shoe – Tecnica Magma S Mid Shoe, $190 U.S   The Highlights – There are a lot of things to like in this shoe. By description, this is a shoe designed to “hike, […]
