So girls, go grab a set of Fox gear for yourself… and quit cross-dressing!

FACTORY EFFEX GRIP DONUTS

APPLICATION: Bikes with grips

STYLES: Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, KTM, skull, iron cross and spider web designs

PRICE: $4.95

Just the other day, Swap got pulled over for poaching the toll road. Luckily, he had a set of these trick-looking Factory Effects grip donuts with him, which he gave to the nice police officer in exchange for letting him go. But little did the cop know, the donuts that Swap gave him were designed for preventing blisters and looking flashy, not eating. Quick thinking, boss!

WINEX BULLSEYE HELMET

COLORS: Wide variety of colors & graphics available

SIZES: XS-XXL

PRICE: $89.99 to $99 (as shown)

When this helmet from Winex showed up at the TransWorld offices, the first thing we noticed was the cool paint job, which includes a big target painted on the back. For you fast guys out there, this might be a very appropriate design, since the competition is probably gunning for you. And if you aren’t a fast guy and are getting lapped, the target could also be a great way to confuse the real fast riders!

FOX GIRLS TWILIGHT TANK

COLORS: Black, cocoa, red, green, white, pink

SIZES: XS-XL

PRICE: $20

For the scoop on this product, we decided to just get Taylor’s input: “I really like wearing my Fox twilight shirt. It feels great, it fits me well, and I think that the logo is something that girls will really like. Plus, it is great to see such stylish girls’ clothing coming from a motorbike company.” There you have it, folks. Motorbikes.

FMF TRUCKER HATS

SIZES: One size fits all

PRICE: $12.00

FMF is one of the best exhaust companies in the industry, and this reflects onto every one of their products. For example, these trucker hats are lightweight modifications designed to provide noticeable visual gains up top, better all-around power and possibly improved response in your low-end region. But no matter what the performance gains are, either of these hats will make you look way better than stock.

J&S PROFORMANCE PRO STAND

APPLICATION: All MX bikes

PRICE: $29.95

Have you ever seen a need for something, and asked,

“Why doesn’t anyone make one of these?” Well, that is the thought process that J&S Proformance used when developing their new Pro Stand. On one side, the stand is a normal triangle used to hold your ride up. Flip it over, and the Pro Stand is used to lay your bike over (via the built-in grip insert tube) for tasks such as changing clutch plates and washing the bike. Why didn’t you think of that?
