screw the pooch on their 2018 gear? I wear Fox gear, but their color ways are pretty awful this year. Same for TLD. Not sure what the hell they were thinking.

It seems Troy Lee's designer(s) drop a hit of acid before sitting down and designing their gear. The last couple of years designs have been nothing short of hideous. They need a serious reset.

TLD has the cleanest gear on the market. They also have some of the busiest gear on the market. A little something for everyone, like most brands.

You gotta swing big if you want to go for home runs. I was obsessed with this set when it came out. Thought it was flawless. Not so great by today's standards. Photo

Damn I remember this exact set of gear, think it was around 2005.

I don't know what is wrong with Fox but the last two years have been really bad(especially 2018). 2015 and 2016 was decent.

But this is very subjective. I'm sure that there are lots of people that think Fox looks amazing.

Gear started looking like shit when this industry started using the term "Colorways"

Women don't even use that term.

I haven't been a fan of Fox since I got passed over for a job and they never called me back after two interviews. Garbage.

Yea fox really messed up this years gear line and I don't know if this true but i thought I read some were on here that fox is releaseing a new gear line inbetween 180 and 360 soon does anyone know if this true or not

I don’t understand why it has to be one extreme or the other every year. Some people like bright colors, some people like toned down colors. Some people like a mix. It’s not that hard to do all 3 within your line of gear. Fox has red, black, yellow and a couple colors that I haven’t seen ANYONE in this year Pro or Amateur. And the Polka Dots from TLD are just the most awful thing I’ve seen in MX gear.

Looks like its a trend in the XXI century, first half of the decade gear is cool, second half it sucks.

Its better than anything with cats on it.

I was thinking of buying the TLD polka dot gear just to be funny. Maybe a young, stylish guy could get away with it but a chunky guy in his mid forties wearing it - it would look like a clown suit.

How does "colorways" differ from just "colors"?

The 04-06 or 07 Thor and fox stuff was my favorite of all time. Chad reeds bandana looking gear and RC's orange gear was sweet. JS yellow/ green was bad ass also. Can't forget the KW no fear stuff. What a great time for MX gear!

Fox has been rather average since maybe 2012 or 2013. I have always worn Fox gear, but went to Shift the last couple sets of gear I got since they are owned by Fox and since I had a Fox helmet and goggles (I'm picky about my gear and don't really like to mix and match brands) I am not a big fan of the 2018 Shift gear.

If I had to do over again I probably would have gone with Alpinestars gear, at least something not too crazy. Astars is a little out there at times.

How do you feel about the term "kit" when referring to riding gear, and the obsession to make sure it appears "on point" for Instagram photos?

Fox & tld’s gear is still better than what thor has been releasing lately. Cats & ugly ass simplistic designs

Thats funny - I agree. I like that term as much as I like "on point". I want to impose a state tax to anyone who uses it.

The Prime fit gear is pretty clean if you ask me. Yes it's simple colorwise but that makes me like it even more.

Yeah Colorways is a big Nike term. I think it's dumb. Why can't they just call it a color scheme? They need a really cool hipster doofuss term to really get them to sell.

Like; Spectral Prismatic Variation, or Optical Wavelength Length Differential

So, what else should they call a combination of colours?
