I have written about the matching knee guards, and those were not impressive. These things are really no good, at least for me. I have worn them on a couple of rides, and thought they would give me some protection in the rocks and cactus here, but without the bulk of my full Raceface armor. They are fairly comfortable, but sadly, on all the rocky and bumpy downhill sections I rode, they would slip down my arm within minutes with any sweat. I tried tightening them up so much they were uncomfortable, and even then they would still slip, leaving the elbows unprotected. These are maybe a good buy if your riding is gentle, but anything even a little bit technical, and these are just a waste of money. I just wonder if I can get my money back if they are used?

I bought these to try and have something a little less bulky than the full-on Raceface armor I have been using. Here in S AZ. the rocks and cactus leave a lot of cuts, scrapes and piercings, but now the hotter weather is here the Raceface stuff is a little too cumbersome. I have used these a couple of times, and they just seem to be not very effective, and a little uncomfortable with the straps rubbing and chafing when sweating. I took one endo wearing them, and landed on my right knee, but it was slow and altho I did not get any injury apart from some scratches, I am not sure a speedier dismount would prove them as effective. I think they would slip fairly easily. I am not sure I want to find out!

Got this as a handy garage kit. I am not a full-on mechanic, but do a lot of my own repairs, maintenance and replacement, and this kit is easy to use, falls to hand when it needs to, and, with the addition of a small ratchet arm, has most of what I need for ongoing work on the bike. The quality seems good, and I have had no problems after several months of use.

This is my first 'moden' helmet since I started riding many many years ago, and after a few years hiatus I felt the time had come to get something effective. The terrain here in S AZ. dictates a sensible helmet investment. The fit is good, even over my long hair, pony tail no prob, cool in the AZ heat, and the faceplant I made a couple of weeks ago would normally have given me some face rash, but this thing did a fine job of taking the brunt. Full marks for that!

So far so good. Had these for 3 weeks and getting used to clipless again. I am very impressed by the ease of use, even tho there have been a couple of painful falls as a result of being clipped in. These are thankfully getting less and less as familiarity with the system becomes more second-nature. Perseverance is the key as these pedals are a great balance between being clipped in and still having enough of a platform to 'feel' the pedal, without it being too much. Lightweight is always good, and these fit that remit. I really notice the clearance in the rocky terrain here from the platforms I was using before, and hits are much fewer, although getting more as I become used to the limits! Not sure on durability yet, but no problems so far.
