These Shimano XT pedals are designed to take the rigours of off-road competition whilst also being perfect for cross country trail riding. Beautifully constructed, they are lightweight, high-performing and have an easy entry/exit system.

Designed for your day long adventures, Fondos and mile eating training rides the Isadore bib shorts utilise the very best fabrics and chamois. After hours in the saddle you'll still barely know they're there.

"These have a dark purple panel on them which I bet you are not expecting. Not as 'matte' as marketing leads you to believe. Shame otherwise a good product."

"The socks are waterproof and there is a clever waterproof seal (the Hydrostop) on the inside to stop water running down your leg into the sock...BUT...the inner seal isn't bonded to the waterproof sock membrane so the water gets in anyway and fills up inside the sock. A HUGE oversight by the manufacturers, so quite simply I do not recommend them."
Cons: terrible design error

"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."

"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."
Cons: Low Quality
