It's hard to find a mountain bike enthusiast who doesn't like to know what the latest gear and equipment is, so here we've decided to find out the exact models of helmets, goggles, gloves and cycling shoes used by the best mountain bikers.

What equipment is used by the top mountain bike professionals

Obviously World Cup riders are committed to their team and personal sponsors, so the choice of equipment has these constraints, yet it is interesting to see how each rider chooses the models that work best for them without sticking to what you would expect. For example, many prefer road helmets to mountain bike helmets.
