    yes

    Les Arcs is a fantastic place for riding, some of the best singletrack I’ve ever ridden is there.

    Where did you stay?

    yes, with an alfine

    no idea how wide… they are standard dialled bikes pablo escobars if that helps

    XC helmet and goggles! No no no no… NO!

    oh here we go… sorry but function over form for me, works really well, personally dislike using a full-face for most stuff

    anyway, it’s all XC 😉

    xc helmet and goggles – yes! think i might give it a try soon.

    i’ve started wearing goggles with my xc lid.

    find glasses slip too much and you still get dust behind the lens. just stick the goggles on top on the up. and two sets of goggles (clear and tinted) are cheaper (generally) than sports glasses.

    im gonna be trying OTG goggles wiv my Hex

    GF was skiing powder there 2 weekends ago – amazing

    Hi Ash,

    I personaly like the idea of goggles and xc lid 🙂

    Being a well controlled cyclist in the DH manner, do I realy
    need to invest in a full face for the trails that trail addiction
    ride?

    I dont feel the need to have one in the uk on the steep stuff.

    Your thoughts?

    Wicked pics, I cant wait.

    What Guy said 🙂 (he should know, he was overtaken by an Alpine at La Thuile last summer ;-))

    The Alpine is outstandingly good on 95% of Les Arcs trails, i.e. on all but the very bumpiest of trails (the ones that are that rocky that you can’t pick a line through them)

    On anything that is anywhere near smooth, I personally way prefer a decent hardtail to a susser… much more reactive out of the corners, and generally more lively-feeling (easier to manual/bunny hop, etc). Need decent volume tyres mind.

    yeah yeah 😉

    Ash, go for a pisspot helmet and goggles. That’ll really get em talking!

    I love Les Arcs trails.

    Hmmmm, only problem I have is a dodgy back, long rides on my Alpine get my back stiffening up.

    don’t sit down! stand up and use your legs as your rear suspension.

    Oh I do that, got big wheels and tyres I can use of my Bullit too. Just don’t want to miss out on riding on holiday cos me backs knackered! I’m very tempted though as I had be thinking about it and your pics have started to sway me again.
