The legendary Boba Fett -- a genetic clone of his father Jango Fett has long been a legend in the galaxy. At a young age, he suffered the loss of his father at the hands of expert swordsman Mace Windu which sparked in him an undeniable desire for revenge. As an orphan, Boba Fett grew up in the galaxy’s criminal underworld, later training Aurra Sing -- a ruthless bounty hunter and mentor. Throughout his life and over years of training Boba developed a reputation as the galaxy’s deadliest bounty hunter. In contracts for both empire and the criminal underworld, he proved his strength and determination. Enough to take home the yellow jersey? Who knows?
As one of the most interesting and iconic characters of the series, it’s hard to forget Chewy. Beyond his distinguishable stature and full body of hair, Chewy is most well known for his loyalty and service to his captain and friend Han Solo. Together, and with the help of other rebels, the duo helped the Alliance defeat the Galactic Empire and restore freedom in the galaxy. While Chewy’s skills aboard the Millennium Falcon are more than legendary, he doesn't look too shabby with his Bikepack or Fatbike set up.
As you already know, the wise and extremely powerful Jedi Master Yoda is a small, green, humanoid alien who served as the Grandmaster of the Jedi Order. His endless wisdom and mentor-like role in the series importantly guides many of the characters along their path to happiness and unlocking immortality. Without Yoda, it’s difficult to envision the state of the galaxy. It just so happens the only bike made to fit is a tricycle. Suits him well.
As the elite squad of marines under the direction of the Emperor, Stormtroopers guard the Empire from periods of war, civil unrest, and insurrection. Often traveling in collective groups of varying sizes, their armor and training help them adapt to operational missions and environments all over the Galaxy. Already fitted with a proper helmet, this trooper looks more than ready for his time trial.
While there are a vast array of battle vehicles and ships featured throughout the series, the Ti-re Fighter is truly one of a kind. Aa s staple of the imperial fleet, these single-pilot ships designed for agile and face-paced maneuvers became the base model for the rest of the TIE fighter fleet of ships to come. It just so happens we've got one that's even faster and quieter with carbon wheels.
Built from a variety of civilian and military models, the Speeder Bike is exactly as it sounds -- fast.

As an avid mountain biker, it can seem that the quest to find the perfect brake can be a never-ending task. Too much bite sends you over the bars. Too little, and you’ll find yourself at the bottom of the cliff. Well, I think I may have found the perfect brake and it’s a bit out of the ordinary... In my opinion, the Hayes Dominions are the best mountain bike brake on the market.
