Had Pearl Izumi Octanes (silver with the BOA system) prior to these shoes. I really like the adjustability you get with these shoes. You can tighten any of the velcro straps to get the shoe tighter over the toes or top of the instep. The micro adjustable buckle is easy to reach down while your riding and make small adjustments to the heel area. Carbon baseplate has stood up well to any scrapes or pedal mishaps. Very lightweight and stiff - toebox is wider than most high end shoes (which I love, having a wide foot). Ventilation is not an issue (though my Octanes were a little better). Definitely use some Smartfeet inserts to alleviate "hotspots", I've got the yellow ones and they are great!
I've got the CS200CAD from two years ago and it still works just as well as when I pulled it out of the box. This is a great cycling computer (mine is mounted on my stem) The wireless speed and cadence sensors are really great, they don't slide around because of the rubber feet Polar designed. The heart rate strap is really comfortable and with the occasional cleaning doesn't get dingy. Get one, you'll thank yourself. Speed reading is within .5 of the police radar signs on the roadside, very accurate.
Great little tool for all sorts of rides. I don't like carrying a ton of tools and this is a good compromise of tools vs. weight. Who is going to do major repairs while on a ride (if I blow a spoke or chain my ride is done and I'll limp back or call someone) Everybody needs to carry one of these tools.
Rode in the Atmos before this. When the Ionos first came out I tried it on and it looked huge on my head. But as I wore my Atmos more and more started noticing the two pressure points on my forehead more and more so decided to give the Ionos a try. No pressure points, tons of ventilation, the look grew on me too. Great Helmet! It rocks glasses really well, no slipping out of the vents when off your face. Plus it came with a really great winter pad to keep your head warm without having to wear a hat, great fall and spring time alternative.
These tires have great grip with low rolling resistance. Gotten lots of use, probably over 2000 miles and still going strong. Tires are always easy to unmount/mount on the wheel. If you like these consider the 4000S.
