 Castelli Isterico Vest
Castelli Isterico Vest
Core warmth on Autumn/Winter training rides. The Isterico Vest features weatherproof WINDSTOPPER X-Fast front and side panels with a lighter ventilating rear panel. The close anatomic fit and high collar seal out the elements on wet, windswept routes.

" This pump has a neat pressure gage on it which does work, and it is solidly built. However, the pump action is quite difficult and energy sapping compared with my Lezyne mini drive. The pump is also quite heavy for a mini-pump. Not the first choice for taking on the trails for these reasons, but a useful back-up. "
Pros: Rugged
Cons: heavy, difficult action

" Like one or two other reviewers, I'd had problems using the otherwise excellent Lezyne mini drive pump to inflate presta inner tubes. The problem is that when unscrewing the hose of the pump it tends to unscrew the inner part of the presta valve at the same time - releasing all the air in the tube in one gush. This little vale adapter stops all this nonsense. By screwing on to the presta valve, it allows you to use the Schraeder end of the pump hose, thus solving the problem. At this price it is a no brainer. "
Pros: Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight

" I've got the racing jackets for road biking with the persimmon lense which is very good in low light, so I was interested to see how the Prism compared for mountain biking. Took them on a late afternoon/evening ride today so tested them in both daylight and darkness with bike lights. They feel similar to the persimmon lense, but the difference is on the trails - especially in rooty woodland - the lense really does make the roots stand out so you notice them before you hit them, allowing you to anticipate obstacles and choose a better line. They also come with a set of clear lenses, but not sure I'll use them over the Prism for night riding. Only niggle with these was that the frames rattled a bit out of the box. Finally pin pointed this to the silver "O" matter pieces on the arms. Changed them for the black "O"s supplied and no rattling! "

" I purchased these shoes to eliminate medial shin pain and they did the job immediately. They provide far superior stability, comfort and protection on uneven and rocky surfaces. They look fantastic and the Gore Tex membrane keeps feet dry in rain and mud.
If I have one quibble it is with the U-shaped ankle support which gave my left foot a terrible blister by biting into it during a 10k+ run. I recommend doing shorter runs initially to wear them in properly.

The Wahoo ELEMNT is a real game changer. With integrated GPS and so many features, it shouldn't be this easy to use. Just download the free ELEMNT app, pair with your smartphone in seconds and you're ready to ride.
 

Can you upload GPX files to Elemnt?

I'm looking for a cycling computer which I can upload GPX routes to and follow them. Is this possible with the Elemnt GPS? If so, does it give turn by turn directions? Or does it simply display the route on a map, showing your current location?

Which is the secondary lens for these?

Do these come with the persimon or clear lens as secondary?
If clear lens, is it possible to have it changed for persimon, as with the Road Prizms?

It should be written in the product spec what is included one could think..
I have just purchased this product and it IS supplied with both the prism lense (as pictured) and a clear set of lenses - perfect for MTB in day and then night conditions!
