In line with the formulation used in their energy drinks, Torq Gels have a blend of Maltodextrin, a long chain complex carbohydrate and Fructose (fruit sugar) in a 2:1 ratio for maximum carbohydrate absorption.

"The MINIMA S is the new MINIMA. The difference is very simply a slightly more refined fit around the arm area. There is a new seam in the elbow joint which allows the arm fitting to be slightly closer without being restrictive."

"Wiggle Staff Review
Product presentation, look and feel is awesome. Excellent build quality and styling. The integration this watch has to the web is excellent. Once you have the software downloaded (easy) you can monitor your distance / pace / route on a map and numerous other things. This watch is all about keeping it simple and quick to review your running 'career'. You'll get info like - fastest 10km and longest run popping up which all helps to keep you motivated and improving. The menu interface system is concise and super easy to understand, with a big clear display to show you exactly the info you want to see. Connect with others via the NIKE+ site and see how fast your 10K time is compared to everyone else in London (or something similar).
This isn't like a conventional running watch which has 'normal watch' features as standard - so expect a few omissions; No alarm clock, no configurable countdown timer (you need to configure this using your computer), no dual time - so if your running abroad you'll need to reset your watch.
To get the most out of this watch you will need use the NIKE foot sensor - this needs to be mounted in the sole of you shoe for best accuracy. The simple solution is buy a NIKE sneaker with a sensor cavity already integrated into the foot bed. I only run ASICS so I used a dremmel to hack a cavity into my shoe. Not pretty but it works a treat! There are aftermarket systems which allow you to strap the sensor to your laces - but I was conscious of how this would effect the orientation of the sensor and therefore the accuracy of data returned.
The accuracy of this watch whilst running is very questionable. Having run six marathons (PB: 3'09) I have become familiar with my pace, the real time 'pace' readout simply is not accurate. Once a mile is completed, the watch calculates the average pace and displays this, which reassures you that you are not running incredibly off pace.
This watch can struggle to find GPS reception. So choice one leave without a signal and use foot sensor only. Or option two stand around shaking your legs pretending to stretch while you watch finds the signal. I'm impatient so wait for a few minutes then get going. Sometimes the watch finds a signal - sometimes it doesn't.
(I run in London parks, urban and towpath environments.)
Summary - very cool concept, very cool web integration, awesome motivator, gutted that GPS reception is not more robust.
I am fairly certain their will be a firmware update to this watch which will improve the GPS reception and I can't wait until its sorted!"
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, excellent online connectivity
Cons: Expensive, gps reception frustrating.

Identical in technical specification to the Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling team, ASV is the ultimate apparel for racing and elite level athletes. Light and aerodynamic, the ASV Bib Short combines branded, highly technical fabrics and refined striking graphics.
 

Comparison with DHB Aeron Pro bib

Could you tell me how these compare to the DHB Aeron pro bibs and whether they are offered as a replacement or an upgrade?

Specifically, I'm interested to know whether the seat pad is of a higher quality.
Staff Answer
Official Supplier
The ASV bib shorts are the same specification as the Professional WigleHonda team team kit. They are designed to be lightweight and suitable for the demands of elite racing conditions. The CyTech Elastic Interface Endurance HD pad is low bulk and High Density suitable for longer efforts in the saddle, for those with a lean body and familiar to many hours in the saddle.

The Aeron pro Bib shorts feature Toray's - Fieldsensor fabric, this fabric is designed to rapidly move moisture. The CyTech Elastic Interface Tour Air pad is suitable for medium to long efforts in the saddle, and has greater comfort hand feel, it feels more volumous or spongy.

The above is a guide - everyone has different tolerances and experience to comfort in the saddle. Some people prefer a high density pad (ASV) and some people are more comfortable with a marginally softer pad (Aeron Pro).

This garment is cut to form fit against the body. It's designed for lean physiques. If you are normal or athletic build go for L. If you are bigger built choose XL.

If you are lean (low body fat build) go for M. Because your height is actually in the L specification, the M jersey will be shorter than intended.

The Mono Waterproof Overtrouser offers you rain protection for your legs and feature an adjustable tailored fit for minimal bulk.
 

Inside leg length part 2

Exactly how is it possible for the Mono and Minima trousers to be the same length, when the Mono has a regular/short/long option that the Minima never had? Is the difference in length that insignificant?
Staff Answer
Official Supplier
The mono waterproof over trouser does have different inseam/leg length leg measurements compared to the minima product. This product was specifically created to offer more choice to the customer and the varying body sizes (compared to Minima - where tall slim customers were unhappy with the shorter/average leg length).

WiggleJoe, has answered before all the information was with him. On occasions size charts do not reach the content team in time and we apologise for the lack of clarity here.

Queer sizing

Need help! Am standing at 172cm

Waist, pretty small at 26/27inches
Hips, around 29/30 inches

Reasonably long thighs at 37cm inseam(to kneecap)

XS or S!
I'd love longer shorts, hate them sitting in the middle portion of my thighs =(
Staff Answer
Official Supplier
I am 5'7" (170cm) with a 31" waist, I wear size small Aeron Pro and the bib length comes to the bottom of my quad muscle. (the bottom part of this muscle is visible)

You are 2cm taller and much slimmer than I. You have the choice to go for a better fit around the waist and backside (XS), but the shorts will slightly slightly higher up than they appear on me. Or chose Small to get a bit more thigh coverage and a lesser fit around the backside (not good).

Due to your slimness I would recommend XS.

This is a minimal construction, lightweight, waterproof and breathable jacket. Once the jacket is stuffed into it's own zip pocket. It can then be stowed in your jersey back pocket.
