Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These eyeshades are great! I wanted to replace my glasses with something you wouldn't see on everyone else in the peloton. I was first a little hesitant because I thought they would fog or just be too hot. After a season racing with these in California I had no such problems. My only complaint is that the lens is a bit too dark and I had to switch to sunglasses with a lighter lens for later day crits and foggy rides. So I wish Oakley made some replacement lenses. Otherwise A+

First of all, I probably should have read the product description in more detail because the product I received was the red anodized color (not the depicted silver color). However, color wasn't a huge issue for me. So I slapped this on my bike, and haven't regretted it yet. I can say this was a solid upgrade from the Sram GXP Team BB.

This was a great helmet! I bought this helmet for the 2014 racing season. I loved for the early year cold weather crits. It even seemed to be pretty comfortable in hotter conditions like at collegiate nationals this year. I'm positive that it saved me some watts. However, I believe the most overlooked feature of these helmets are their ability to protect. I crashed into a car recently, and this helmet took the majority of the damage and completely saved me. Thank you giro for great engineering, and I will definitely buy another!

Fit: True to size

I first purchased these shoes after hearing numerous recommendations from teammates on my cycling team. Initially they fit well, and I found that the the instep was very accommodating to my low instep. However, after racing and training in them for about 1000 miles I find that the toe box is too narrow for my foot. The outside of my foot would really hurt after any serious climbing. I can say that they were fairly stiff but not overly so and looked crazy cool in highlighter yellow.
