Review: POC Resistance Strong shorts

New closing system:

These shorts use 2 buttons instead of one button through a hole.

The pockets are smaller than in the trail vent shorts, a small wallet or keys will fit perfectly.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Zip pocket at leg works well as phone pocket
  • light weight
  • True to size fit
  • good breathability, the short is made of a thin material in the thigh and front area, and with SuperFabric on the sides. these shorts are a huge improvement in terms of cooling over the trail vent shorts.
  • perfect with knee pads

    As you can see the Cat s 50 phone hits perfectly inside the pocket.
  • good adjustment & sizing, the sizing is perfect for me, I am 32 in waist and 26 in the hips, and I use the adjustment straps to the max both on the Poc Trail vent and Resistance shorts.
  • smooth YKK zippers

    the material with stripes is the stretch material
  • The VPD padding does not compromise comfort.
  • strong threads/stitching

Cons:

  • the VPD padding could be wider and longer.
  • only 2 colour choices
  • And of course white will look dirty

.

Conclusion

Because of the fit, comfort, and protection, I recommend these shorts.

These shorts are one of the best shorts you can get.

In my opinion, these 2016 shorts are the best shorts for use.

Review:Sigma BC 8.12 ATS & Sigma BC 5.12 cycling computer

28491780981_0de10ce4e9_b

Pros:

  • easy to use one button design
  • its small but shows the most important things, if you only want simple computer this is nice
  • easy to see

Cons:

  • Falls off too easily, if some branches hit it , it will fall off, this is caused by the turn in the mounting system.

It is not waterproof, The button is not sealed so water comes when you ride in rain or wash your bike.So I let the computer dry out in the window in hot summer, it took about 2 days, and it worked fine after this.I took off the plastic screen cover and reglued it with glue all around to make for a better seal against water.

  • a few days later the screen was dead, it slowly came back but was very faded.
  • spoke mounted magnet’s locking mechanism starts to get undone sometimes, maybe because of stones hitting it.
  • Flimsy button, it moves in all directions.
  • no USB port, must a Sigma Docking stationdc
  • the BC 5.12 computer uses wire, but the problem is the wire can break if you get ti stuck in some branches or something similar, so I go for the wireless, instead.

Conclusion:

because it’s not waterproof and falls off too easily, I can’t recommend this product.

I will probably upgrade to a high-end cycling computer some day.

Review: 2016 POC Resistance Strong Gloves

 

Pros:

  •  no more twisted strap, like on 2015 Index DH glove
  • more air flow than the DH index glove provided by the holes in the palm
  • I stay cool even in 25 deg. Celsius
  • comfortable
  • true to size, I have 21cm knuckle size, and the medium fits me perfectly.I went from Index DH gloves in large which was a bit too bit too big, to this glove, and I don’t regret it.
  • Durable ceramic-coated SuperFabric® with abrasion resistant properties

Cons:

  • Because of the holes on the palm, the durability suffers when you get something (pedal pins for example) stuck in the holes you can tear the fabric, but this is also caused by the fabric’s weakness.but if you do it can easily be fixed if you got some sewing skills.
  • the triple dots on the fingers wear off fast because they are glued on.

    Holes got bigger.
  • the glue holding the Velcro to the rubber strap failed of some pairs of gloves.

Verdict: Recommended, because of the protection and ventilation they provide.

If you want Gloves with protective padding, and good air flow/ventilation these gloves are the best gloves you can get,But if you want longer lasting palm to get the Index DH glove instead,but it will of course not be as cool as the Resistance glove, but the durability of the palm must be improved.

I still use my Index DH gloves in size L, for colder days,I wear them over the Resistance gloves in size M, which works well.
