Very thin and light, but works incredibly well. My go-to setup for winter riding. On extra cold days, wearing a mesh summer layer underneath is a neat trick. This creates and extra layer of air pockets and improves the insulation considerably. I have washed it at least 20 times at this point and it's kept up really well. No tearing or piling of the soft inner layer at all.

Yes, they are uber-expensive. But oh so incredibly warm. If you plan to ride in freezing conditions, this is just the way to go. The new Assos pad is better than S5, and the compression on these is perfect. The best part is that the mid-section portion is designed incredibly well to insulate your crotch and kidneys from the cold and the wind and that makes a ton of difference.

Switched to this crank and chainset from BB30(PF30 actually) Hollowgram SI and Spidering because of astonishingly bad creak issues with Cannondale's bottom bracket solution. Just got tired of having to take everything apart and re-grease/re-locktite the cups and bearings to keep things running smoothly. So I went to this and Kogel bearings adapters and I could not be more pleased. A great way to run Shimano's 24mm standard on BB30 frames. The crank is super stiff, the weight is competitively low, and the chainrings make front shifting THAT much better. Even though Spiderings are renowned for their stiffness, Dura-Ace is just better. Not to mention being able to swap every imaginable combination of tooth sizes on the same crank and spider is a great thing to have.
