"Fitted to my synapse last year. Front went on and seemed ok. Rear a real struggle to get right and rubbed most of time. Took them off in the spring and the rear snapped at the bonding tape point. The problem is that are limited choice alternatives as bike does not have fitting points."
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Poor Fit

"Can't really say I'm impressed. It's expensive for such a small amount. Have applied it 3 times now after 4 hour rides. Drive chain was noisy today albeit It was humid. Can't say it's better than cheaper other dry lube products. Also I don't understand the need for the light. Why not make product better value and ditch to light."
Pros: nice size bottle for traveling
Cons: Expensive

"Running two pairs on sep bikes. Great look and design.
They have all started to delaminate (split)in some form or another.
They last a season before showing signs of cracking, albeit I m still running a pair after two years.
So this is my third set and I have ridden them all year at weekends and on rollers. Been all over Europe and just back from Italy which included steep mountain gravel roads. Not had a slip in wet or dry and stunningly NEVER a single puncher. A fact I find really hard to believe. Never used a tyre lever in anger ! Fantastic

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Rugged, Lightweight, Good Fit

The Aeron cycling shorts pack an amazing feature set at a very competitive price: premium Italian stretch fabric and refined fit furnished with the ‘Race LT’ CyTech Elastic Interface cycle pad. An excellent value cycling short without compromise.

"I have a few different bikes road & mtb so like to have gear to suit each one. I have bought from this manufacturer over the years and they are fantastic value and quality. These shorts were a real surprise good fit albeit at first they seem slightly small but feel of real quality. Unfortunately the brand will never command the wow of high end big names which come at a huge price difference. But for return on your £ they represent massive value for money ."
Pros: Great Value, High Quality

"Looks very nice in its case & comes with a certificate having been calibrated. But I thought I would test product on a non critical allen bolt. The results were different each time but, the general result was over tightening because the wrench did not indicate that it had reached the desired setting and you keep cranking away ! ."
Cons: does not work !

It wasn't long after the original Aireator were introduced before athletes were calling for a shorter version. Speede answered the call with a 1" StayFast cuff.

"Bought the team bottle for my sis and two smoked ones for myself.
Looks good & does the job. Think the screw top is a little over engineered and therefore it could be a bit lighter. The opener is fine and does not spurt fluid when you reach down to open. Fits firmly in cage. The 750 ml size makes sense for summer use.

red white logo

So.... with the white stripe and different colour logo is it just the zx that is either red or white or the whole ultremo statement??
Thanks
The zx element stays white in all cases.
