Cuts down on debris flinging up. I got the orange and it's nice and bright. It does not come with zip-ties and there is no packaging. I had to trim a piece off that would be used to hang it on a hook in the store. I can appreciate the minimal impact type of design but am not a huge fan of all the instructions, details, and wording just printed on the underside.

Great Stem, Great Color
It's tough to beat Deity hard parts when it comes to fit and finish. These bars are no different! I paired this bar with their Copperhead 35mm stem and haven't had a problem so far. They feel stiff and solid and the paint seems to be holding on tight after installing all the controls. The 787 feels a tad wide but they are marked to cut down to different widths. I might try that down the road after a few more rides.

The grips themselves are great and offer a comfortable and solid feel under my gloves. They don't tear up my hands if I'm just going out for a parking lot session on break, either. I only have a gripe with the single lock-on system. The inner tube is tapered slightly at the bar end to facilitate a better mount and allow the grip to cover the bar end. However, I have a problem with one side coming loose constantly and starting to twist. I'm sure I'll eventually get enough LocTite to hold it in place one of these days.

Fit: Runs small

I wear a L in almost everything but I returned the L for an XL and it was much more comfortable. Torso, arm length, and waist was okay but it was tight across the shoulders. Otherwise, it's a basic flannel. Great for when you need another layer don't count on it to be the warmest one.

Great fit, easy to snug laces, and loads of traction. I've always been a fan of Adidas shoes so having an outdoor shoe that uses Gore-Tex and their Boost sole checks almost all the boxes for me. The Conti outsole is sticky and is the same tread pattern as their Trail King tire so that just adds a cool factor to it (unless it starts to wear just as fast as the tires do).

Fit: True to size

Great jacket, it's handled the rainy and windy weekends at the track very well. The hood is large enough to fit over a beanie and that's very welcome. There have been minimal feathers coming out so either that's been worked on or it's going to happen a little farther down the road. So far, so good!

Love the jacket but I'm right on the cusp of L/XL, if I did it again I would size up to an XL. I'm typically a L across all brands but this is a bit tight in the shoulders.

Otherwise, it's a great shirt/jacket. It takes the bite out of chilly wind pretty well and it's almost too warm if I head out on the trail bike for a pedal.

I had to return my first one under warranty since a seam in the armpit popped after a week and was starting to unravel down the side. The second appears to be holding up so far! The fit is good and offers plenty of room for heavier shirts and hoodies underneath it. The pockets are soft and the zipper and additional buttons are solid!
