"I tried this product on Campag 11 speed. Whilst the chain seems to stretch this link does not and causes issues in the drive train where I could feel each time it crossed the cassette. I took the link off and the problem resolved itself."

"Where I live you don't get the freezing cold winters of Europe but you still need a winter jacket to keep the chill off. This jacket is excellent for that. It keeps the wind off back, front and arms whilst still allowing your body to breath. It doesn't make you too hot. The only suggestion is if you are on the cusp of a larger size take the large size, to allow for clothing underneath."

"I brought these as a replacement for the original nylon jockey wheels on my Campag Chorus derailleur. Firstly, I ordered thinking there were a pair, then I read the product desciption and thought they were individual, so I ordered another. For your information they come as a pair. Then I took them for a ride. I met at my mates place wearing my new white shoes and new jockey wheels. What do you think he noticed first, yep the jockey wheels. They are slightly noisier but I have noticed that less gunk collects on the wheels and therefore is not transferred to the chain. The gear changes feel smoother too."

"I brought these shoes to replace Shimano R132's. The first thing I noticed was the wider toe box. The shimano shoe comes to a point where this shoe has a wider toe box for the wider foot. Then the SBS closure is adjustable on both sides. First the standard buckle but on the other side the strap is adjustable again for the wider foot. The final adjustment is the multiple adjustment of the cleat position. After setting up the shoe I put them on. What a difference. An arch support puts your foot in the right position removing the need for many who like me use cleat shims to set the foot up right. Then I rode on them. I will never return to Shimano. On the long rides they are comfortable, they are mega stiff, they fit your foot well on the pedal. I couldn't believe the difference. Even if I'm not professional, I feel faster in this shoes. Well Done Northwave."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit, as above

"I purchased this to get a down loadable HRM where I can monitor my efforts. The initial setup was simple, then the online hookup was simple. The HRM is easy to use however I have a couple of problems with it. My Garmin products allow you to install a program on your own computer to monitor your training. This product only allows an online version. There are more features on the online version (calorie monitoring) however to get full functionality you need to pay US$120 per year. Also you need to make sure that the contact pads are very wet on the chest otherwise it loses the signal. As your training progresses it gets better but when training in cold weather it can miss out for some time. Pretty good package but could be slightly better for the price."
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: loses signal easily, download functionality

"I have flat feet and have run on Asics for a couple of years now. This is the first time I have purchased the Kayano. It will not be the last. The heel cushion is molded to fit around the Achilles and the arch support straightens the foot. Plenty of cushion for landing on the sole as well. I have been running on these shoes for two weeks now and would totally recommend for those that role in or with flat feet."

Is this the correct link for 11 speed Campagnolo? Thank you.

It is but I don't recommend. Get yourself a campag tool and put in a link.

I've heard these jackets come up up small. How do they compare with the Night Vision range, where Large fits me perfectly?

Slightly small especially in the arms and shoulders. If you are broad or have big arms go a larger size.

Is this product waterproof - i.e.can it be used while swimming?

Yes, the heart rate strap is water resistant to 30m and the watch 100m however it doesn't guarantee hr signal when under water.
