2015 Mavic Crossmax Jersey long & short sleaves

I have not crash tested it yet:-), but I assume its quite durable.

the sizes are about 1 cm difference each way, so I can use International medium and International large.

Pros

  • very comfortable against your skin soft and stretches, much more comfortable than a normal cotton t shirt., quite smooth.
  • stretches so easy to take on & off elbow pads when wearing the jersey
  • will fit every type of body armor, I use POC VPD Air elbow pads
  • excellent fit
  • the collar could be a bit higher in the front.

Cons

  • the size label  in the rear/ neck is not comfortable against your skin
  • size label in the neck is uncomfortable
  • The yellow jersey attract bees

Because I can use base layer and jersey but still feel cold in this area, use use a buff but I pull the jersey down fro the rear and on the sleeves so I get full coverage in the neck-chest area.

as you can see there is no issue wearing the Poc VPD AIR elbow pads underneath.

 

Conclusion:

good fitting and comfy jersey,so I recommend it

Review:BBB BSD-04 Anatomic Race-Black saddle- Uncomfortable

ncathis saddle has more cons than pros, it’s basicly butt torture for me.

the plastic on the sides and the plastic part that hold the rails will be pushed into your buttcheaks and will hurt when sitting on it.

i felt the saddle right where my butt bones/ischial tuberosities.

its very unconfortable saddle, the onyl reason i fot the saddle is because hte bontrager ssr saddle on my 3900 broke.

i now sue a Bontrager race RL wich flexes more and is thinenr btu still cmfortable.

Pros:

  • pretty durable
  • the front plate under the saddle did not breake
  • no screws popped out.
  • the grip,but can’t say how long it lasts becuase i got a new saddle as soon as i could

 

2015 Swix RaceX base layer jersey high neck

I got this underwear jersey in medium.

Pros

  • very comfortable against the skin
  • the sleeves are long and go past he wrist so your gloves go over them, witch is perfect for me as a rider.The wrist area of the sleeve can fit 2 of my hands but still leave room, when fully stretched.
  • it stretches in all directions so when you get bigger muscles it will still fit,as you can wearing padding underneath is not a issue, or if you are muscular it won’t be a issue either,but I wear the pads over the base layer,so you don’t have to take off the base layer to take off the pads,

  • no seams in the armpit, so its very confortable.
  • Strong propper seams( with cheaper underwear from other brands i had issue with hte thred breaking the first time i got it on, but not with these.

cons:

  • none so far.

 

Verdict:

Recommended well made base layer that will fit many shapes of bodies and is very comfortable,wit seams in the right places.

REVIEW: Rapid Racer Products Enduro Guard 200mm/large

it protects you and the fork from the most of the mud and dirt and stones, but if its very muddy and its splashing mud from every direction or other riders it does not help much with seal guard.32732697525_afef6fc554_o

but the seal guard I have used it almost 7 months, and its still going strong, evo but the guy in the store tried to mount one white guard on one of my other bikes and it snapped(according to him).

enduro guard large green mounted on a FOX Evo29” no matter the size of  of the travel i think you should get size large, more protection the better, unless its a small kids bike.

As you can see the seal guard don’t help much, the featured picture shows it even better, as the seal is covered with snow.

Official site: http://www.rapidracerproducts.com/EnduroGuard.htm

 

 

Verdict:

Give light protection against mud or gravel in your face, but does not catch every thing in bad weather, my goggles will still get wet wit mud.

You will definitely need a bigger & longer fender/mud guard if you plan do do a mud bath.

Review: POC Joint VPD Air Elbow pads

most of the elbow or knee pads I see on the market are not up to my standards,they are made as bad as the Bliss Arg knee and elbow pads.

the pad is cut so it bends easier and is more comfortable, but when I crashed one time and the pads squeezed my skin so it was red few days,but that not really a big issue

Pros:

  • easy and fast to take them on and off
  • the right materials used so they will be durable and wont wear out
  • very comfortable,not as hot as the bliss arg or similar pads.
  • they did not wear out just in weeks like the 2015 Bliss Arg.
  • light weight
  • not as bulky as bliss arg or 661 r similar designs,so you won’t look liek a robot wearing a jersey.
  • stay in place when you crash

Cons:

  •  upper strap is needed in my opinion,it will hold the pads in place more securely.
  • only one strap,but this should not be a issue if you got the right size.But if you hit something backwards and it gets hooked on the upper side it can pull the pad off.

my experience with these pads was so good that I now got Joint VPD 2.0 Shins & Joint VPD 2.0 DH Long Knee

Verdict:

Get the Joint VPD 2.0 Elbow or Joint VPD 2.0 Elbow or  instead,which I have done.

men etui/futeral er ikke det samme,ikke innpakningen heller Jeg har brukt brillene i mer enn (husker ikek nøyaktig)2 år i varmt vær syklet i kalde og varme dager, ingen tind har knekt , det følger med et futeral med blrillepose, men det stemmer ikke,men den har 4 glass brilene sitter på min nase ok,men problemet at jeg får fluer somkrasjer i panna mi rett i øynene.men formen på panna har jo mye å si ,de kan kansje for deg og ikke meg.

 

det som ikke er bra

  • ikke Photocromatisk linse på gsport sin side stod det at det er det. men lenger ned sto det at det følger med 4 glass.
  • Den svarte lakken flasser av

IMG_20150805_194404

  •  gummi strømpa på brille armene faller av og limen smelter, gummien revner så brillene blir ekkle å ha på seg når dette skjer. jeg måtyte vaske vekk limen
  • 599,- prisen er for høy
  • bare et farge valg
  • bare en størrrelse

Den svarte lakken farler av, og smelte så man får svarte merker på huden. gummi strømpa på brille armene faller av limen smelter, det sklir av, gummien revener. så brillene blir ekle å ha på seg når dette skjer.

det som er bra

  • futteral/etui og brillepose
  • brille glassene er i en pose for å ungå riper.
    du får kjøpt disse brillene hos gsport, intersport eller på nett på

https://www.gsport.no Konklusjon jeg ambefaler ikke disse brillene http://www.gsport.no/produkt/214315/c4-sportsbrille-re-2-7 noen vil vite mer om c4 komponenter http://www.terrengsykkel.no/ubb/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1126977&page=2

Review: Bontrager evoke 2015 mountainbike glove

i purschased these in size Large,they fit well,but shimano the shimano gloves i had were size Medium

i have used these gloves for mtb.

there is a womens version in light blue only difference is the color realy.

afther few days of riding:

natural and confortable fit.

inForm design reduses the  fatigue,but not as mutch as gloves with gel inserts but gel inserts have a big con they wear out fastcan feel the stiching but still confortable.

afhter few days the bontrager logos start to wear off.

pros:

  • Excellent brake lever feel
  • the bontrager logos on the fingers give you extra grip
  • Simple pull-on design makes it easy to take them on and off
  • very breathable in the heat
  • decent price

cons: 

  • no touch screen support o nthe fingertips
  • afther few months the sides of the fingers ripped apart.
  • the gloves will rip apart easier because of no strong material on the fingertips
