The ultimate in aerodynamic cycle wear, this is the speed suit to aspire to. Crammed full of cutting edge technologies to make it the sleekest, fastest and lightest, this suit is nearly totally seamless for a fantastic riding experience.
"This is a high end skin suit, that should only be worn during time trials. It is designed to be very tight and if you size correctly it is exactly that - I am writing this review with this in mind. Ignore any sizing advice re how tall you are and go purely on chest an then waist measurements (in that order). I'm 6'3" with a 98cm chest, if I were to use the height sizing I'd be in the XXL range, instead I went for a Large, based on the chest measurements, and it fits me exactly as a skinsuit should.
It is very comfortable during a TT, the legs and arms don't slip at all and you should not have to adjust anything once you are in the start house.
I can't comment on the durability of this skinsuit, however it does appear to be well made - time will tell I guess.
I can't stress enough, this is a pro level skinsuit and needs to be very tight to be of any advantage."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
Cons: Limited Color Choices

dhb Windproof Windtex Headband
Enhanced thermal protection from cold wind for your head.
"This headband works well, blocks the wind and keeps your ears warm. The issue I have with it is that it is slightly too big for my head (I take a medium helmet) and I find that it will slip while I am riding.
The range of colours is great and if they offered different sizes I'd be giving this 5 stars."
"This liner glove works well as a liner under another (in my case wind proof) glove. the fabric is probably a bit too thin for my liking as I do get cold hands, but it will probably be ok for most people.
The fit is in line with most other glove manufacturers so no need to go up or down a size from what you currently have."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Good Fit
Cons: too thin

"I bought this wheel bag for my disc as I wanted a padded bag and didn't want to pay close to A$100 for a wheel bag with the manufacturer's logos all over it. I am very impressed with the padding and internal skewer pocket. The only criticism I have of it is that the handles are very close together meaning that it is a bit awkward to handle when the zipper is undone - this is a minor issue though.
"I used to use old tyres on my indoor trainer. I then bought this tyre out of curiosity and what a difference it made!!! There is no longer any squeaking with each pedal revolution and no fragments of tyre peeling off onto the floor. Absolutely essential for a smooth and quieter trainer experience."
"I bought these clip-on bars for my road bike. They are easy to set up and offer adjustable pad and bar lengths. The material of clip-ons won't impact on your performance, only the position they put you in. The bars can put you in a very aero position and offer great value for money."
