Great inexpensive wetsuit
Posted27 August 2016
wheezyboy
Country : United Kingdom
"I got this to replace the entry-level wet suit I've been using for OW swimming for 4-5 years. This was an immediate improvement - greater flexibility for arm rotation and the buoyancy is excellent. Still adjusting when it comes to removing it in transition - it's a bit of a struggle to get it over teh ankles, but I suspect it's just a question of practice."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, High Quality

Great cushioning ideal for long rides

"Excellent level of cushioning. These make long rides much more comfortable on the wrists and palms. The magnets are a great idea - no more faffing around looking for the stray glove in the drawer."

Ideal for early spring open water swimming

Country : United Kingdom
"These won't stop your toes from freezing in the coldest water, but they certainly delay the onset for a good 30 mins. Also very useful on rocky surfaces - surprising robust. I do find they get a little flappy in the toes after a while, though, but am otherwise very happy with them."
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Lightweight, Rugged

Effective, but not particularly robust
Posted13 February 2016
wheezyboy
"Keeps the wind and the rain out very nicely, but really only suited to racing or uninterrupted rides and not for the constant stop-start of your average commute. Mine developed a hole pretty quickly in the toe cap from stopping at lights and having to unclip from pedals and put my foot down."
Pros: Attractive, Lightweight
Cons: Wears Out Easily

"Pleasantly surprised by how comfortable these are. I've worn them on 50 mile rides with no problem. I'm not sure they'd cope with anything much longer, though, but they are perfectly good for day-to-day riding. Sizing is correct and they look smart too."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value

Keeps the chill off first thing
Posted14 August 2015
wheezyboy
"Light weight and snug fit without being too tight helps to maintain performance. Fits easily into a back pocket when you don't need it any more and will also handle light showers pretty well. Quite resilient too - survived a tumble on its first outing completely unscathed when my jersey and shorts were shredded. Only slight issue is accessing anything you've stored in you jersey rear pockets underneath. As other reviewers of Sportful products advise, always go a size larger than normal."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, Lightweight, Rugged

Light weight and highly effective

"A .little bit fiddly to fit, but the online video is much better than the written instructions so I didn't have too many problems putting this together. You can also adjust the length of each guard depending on which tip you decide to fix. I love the way the rear guard is also designed to offer maximum protection to the front mech. Very reasonably priced too and adds very little weight to the bike. Will fit any standard size road bike."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: written instructions could be clearer.

Fairly cheap pair of goggles for everyday use
Posted23 November 2014

"Okay for everyday use, but find teh straps often need adjusting usually at the beginning of every swim. Fit not quite as good as some of the pricier Aqua Sphere goggles. You get what you pay for."
Pros: Attractive, Adjustable, Lightweight
Cons: needs frequent adjustments

Nice flavour - does the job
Posted16 August 2014

"Easily digestible while on the move and less foil in wrapper than some (matters when you have fillings in your molars). Cheaper alternative to High 5, SIS etc. so good to see Wiggle come up with a fuss-free, reasonably priced competitor. Lack of variety could get a bit dull on long rides, so I mix these up with High 5 gels. Maybe Wiggle could sell a pack of 50% blackcurrant, 50% orange gels."
Pros: Lightweight, good value
Cons: lack of variety

Any good for preventing nipple rash?!

Top 1000 Contributor
I've used it against jogger's nipple on short distances in the heat and it's worked really well. Not tested it on a long run. It won't damage the fabric of your top.

Is the Fantasy Pink clour really pink, or is it red?

On the picture it looks red?

I just need a cheap swimming cap with a bright colour, for open water swimming.

Cool weather padded waist tight suited to Autumn training rides. (dhb Vaeon - previously dhb PACE)
 

small waist, long legs - which size?

I'm 6' 1" with a 32" waist and 33" inside leg. Will a size Medium be long enough?
Best answer

Top 1000 Contributor
Yes, I'm the same size of you except my waist is 32". The leg size is ideal. But I found the waist too big and these tend to sag unattractively when I'm off the bike.
