As the benchmark in mid level bibshorts, the Velocissimo Due leads the way in styling, function and quality. An everyday short that stands up against competition way above its cost.

"was looking for something to go off road and chose these after looking at several models. Have to say I am very happy with these, the quality and fit is top. But they are a little narrow around the toe area, I wouldnt have noticed this before, but coming at them from Newtons and five fingers which allow for more of a toe spread. But apart from that they are very comfortable and grippy over various surfaces, not so bad on tarmac either."

Keep your feet warm without the hassle of a full shoecover. Made from super-durable neoprene, Castelli toecovers slip easily over the front of your shoe and are held in place by the cleats.

"These are a good pair of tights to wear for running and cycling, easy wash. Good yarn weave and stretch.
But they shouldn't really be called compression , don't really fit the bill. Weave of fabric isn't up to providing any real noticeable effect even though I picked a size smaller."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Low Quality, not compression

"This has to be the best thing since chocolate milkshake! I drink this during all training sessions, provides good electrolyte and sodium replacement, dissolves well in water, you can adjust concentrations and now there are some more flavours as well.
Supplemented with energy gels there no better alternative.

Zero the new great tasting electrolyte drink from High5, now comes with a caffeine kick (65mg) - about the same as a mild cup of coffee.
 

do these contain artificial sweeteners?

specifically the caffeine ones I was interested in but really do not like the taste or side effects of sweeteners. please advise if you have any with caffeine but without sweeteners.
Many thanks
