Warm breathable Knee warmers with Castelli's advanced Nano silicone treatment for fantastic water resistance. NanoFlex fabric behaves just like Thermoflex fabric in dry conditions, but provides unbelievable water repellency when it starts to rain.

The Centaur black/red brake calipers retain all the technical and performance characteristics of the 2011 version and has been created based on a special treatment for the finish of certain parts that make the components sportier and more aggressive.

The brightest and best looking rear light on the market! This powerful rear light has the same family genes as the popular TL610, but really packs a punch.

ZERO is the new electrolyte drink from High5; it's virtually calorie free (1.4 cal per 100ml) and has a light refreshing taste.
 

Does it contain any artificial sweetners?

Yes. I suggest you have a look for Nuun.

 WhiteEye Front Light

The White Eye plugs into your Joystick and will double your light output to 480 Lumens on MaXx setting.
 

Where is this designed to clip to? With the orientation of the clip as it is it would sure point out to the side of the bike when attached to the bars

It clips on top of the joystick, piggy backing.

Presumably it halves the battery life of the light it runs off?

As this plugs into the back of another Exposure light with a Smart Port, it must reduce that light's running time? If used with a 240 lumens light, it would halve its life I assume?

Encased in a tough CNC machined casing and fully waterproof. It uses the same Seoul P4 LED as the Joystick MaXx-2, but in red.
 

Does this light come with a long cable for a bike mounted front light, or a short cable for a helmet mounted joystick? Or both?
