With a carbon and glass fibre sole, DMT have combined the respective lightness and stiffness of these materials to make an ultra-rigid, ultra-light shoe. A smart closure system and a 1 strap system make this an easy to use and feature full product.

"The colour of these jackets is a bit weird - I think it is the fabric as the colours are quite muted and not at all vibrant like in the photos. Great jacket / jersey that fits snuggly and you'll keep going back to time again.
Also, the 'hood' thing in the collar is a bit weird. They should just give up on it and make the collar more snug."

"Most 'lobster' gloves for some unknown reason have a 2+2 fingure configuration. Clearly not designed by cyclists! These gloves however have a far more useful 3+1 configuration, leaving the index finger alone to operate road or MTB STI's, just the way you want to. Try these then the other lobster gloves and you'll see what I mean - these ones work!
Sadly, however, the fit wasn;t great for me so I went for some standard finger Gore gloves instead."

Be the UCI World Champion with the 'original air-flow design' Aireators, the sock that kicked off the air-flow rage years ago.

"This PRO microfibre tape is very poor. Unless you really want a leather look, avoid this like the plague. I am known for being a bit of a ninja at bar tape wrapping, but this stuff...it's terrible, it's very hard to get a good finish. It has no stretch, it cannot be revesered (as the glue damages the top coat) and it has absolutely no give or softness. Buy the PRO digital or Gel instead - it is much better."

"You'd have to have the legs of a giraffe to wear these - skinny and long. Why are they sooooo looooooong? If you are a normal human you'll end up wearing these with a crumpled up amount of lycra at your ankles.
And why such a lack of scotchlite reflective piping - these will be worn on dark winter days right?
A disappointing product."

"You'd have to be on the Atkins diet to fit these properly! Extremely tight at the waist but flappy and extremely wide at the knees....what on earth were Craft thinking when they made these. Avoid."

Just like the Boomer, but only rechargeable. Plug it into any USB 2.0 device. Takes around 2-4 hours fo fully charge. Boomer rear is Boomer's front charming younger brother.

"It's not easy to work out which mode this is in, and if I'm not mistaken it has swithed off on me once or twice. Don't rely on it as your only light!! It is super bright and the USB charging is handy."
