Braaaaaaaap!!

Awesome for GEICO to be back with Shift, and awesome that Shift's marketing guy is named JT Fox. How could he not work in the MX apparel industry with a name like that?

Really curious to see if they end up switching to Fox boots, goggles, and helmets.

Also, anyone else notice the "Lab" logo? Does that mean the possibility of switching between Shift and Fox in a similar manner as Kenny?

Safe to assume Christian Craig will also be in Shift gear?

The new Shift gear shown in the release photos have the 6D logo, and riders are all shown with a 6D, so I am assuming that sponsor remains. I wonder about boots though.

They will be in 6D helmets, 100% goggles, Shift gear and Alpinestars boots for the remainder of 2018...2019 could look a lil different...

Wearing 100% goggles over the top of Alpinestars goggles.

I remember Canard tried wearing 2 pairs of googles at once for a mud race.

ML meant Astars boots lol.

Haha I knew that's what he meant. Figured I'd give him some crap for it though.

Hey, Trey was definitely on to something even if it looked weird

Sweet. That Alias gear was dog-ugly from day one. I remember when they ditched Fox for Alias in a blatant move to give the Geico logo more real estate on the jersey.

5/14/2018 3:26 PM

Nothing but black and whites? Am I alone hoping there will be more colors? Very basic, like iron on labels.

Will McAdoo be lining up this weekend, or is he not even back riding yet? Haven't heard a lot about the kid recently.

No, I think they’re good on the head to toe.

Alpinestars boots traditionally can go with any gear, they are a boot company that now makes gear. 6D Helmets can go with any gear. 100% goggles go with any gear.

Now if you wore Alpinestars gear and Fox boots it would be weird. Lol
