The new Zonda clincher wheel has undergone a significant transformation that immediately translates into a very interesting numerical fact: 1555 grams of weight, which means 60 grams less than the 2009 version.
"I have been riding on these wheels for over 18 months now and must say that they have exceeded my expectations on all counts. They roll exceptionally well and are very smooth. I wouldn't waste my money on more expensive wheels unless money wasnt an issue of course. Spend the money on top end race tyres instead and you will be getting all the performance a weekend warrior will ever need. They look the goods too. Fulcrum 3's are the other way to go, they're made by campag and use the same rim i hear and are the same price if u want same performance but different look."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Versatile

Finchdean Bib Cycling Shorts
The Finchdean range - top performance kit which looks good and feels great
"I thought I would try a pair as the reviews were good and the price seemed good value. The chamois is very good but i feel the lycra as is not as good as some of the other pairs i have used (but then again those pairs were $50 more). Maybe these have to do with the sizing as i feel i could've gone down a size. But having said that for the price they are pretty good but seem to be missing a little something in terms of quality like no silicon leg grippers and the feel and support of the lycra. Will you get better for the money? Probably not, but if quality is your main concern you're going to have to pay for it."
"I have had a set of these tyres for just over a year now and they are still going. When I bought them I was sceptical about the mileage i was going to get but have done around 4000km's and i think i will get a little more. They are a little susceptible to getting cut up and puncturing in the wet but otherwise very good for a race tyre. I have 3 punctures in all that time. pretty good if ask me for a race tyre and lets be honest not getting punctures requires more luck than anything else. They roll great, decent weight, ride well and grip well and you can pump them up to 140 psi for racing. Shop around as prices can very and you often find them on special."

Hunston Windtex Headband
The Hunston range - warm and windproof whatever the weather
"The Headband certainly does the job of stopping the wind but the wind buffeting against the material can get a bit noisy as the material is a little thin. Thin material doesn't mean cheap, it just means it is the windtex material but has no lining but this makes it fit under the helmet well. Would be a little better if they put a lining inside the headband to make it a little more comfortable and a little warmer and this would help dampen the noise from the wind. If you ride in really cold weather I would suggest something else but for milder winters or mid season its not too bad as it stops the wind but doesn't get too hot"
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Not Enough Features

Heritage Cycling Cap
Seen on the heads of cyclists all over the world, The Campagnolo cycling cap has become an icon in it's own right. With a traditional cotton build and Campagnolo heritage styling, The Heritage cap is a timeless piece for passionate riders.
"This is now my second campag cap and as usual from campag, it's good quality. I got the white which can look a little weathered after a while but thats the way a cap should look in my opinion and the white is the best looking colour. The cap settles (in shape) once it's been worn for a while and with a few washes. I wear this cap under the helmet on my winter rides and it does a good job of keeping my head warm enough on all but the coldest mornings. The wiggle price makes the otherwise expensive australian store prices much more to my liking."
