I bought these as a replacement to my old Northwave shoes which I LOVE!!! The quality in these is outstanding and I love everything about them. The sizing is the issue as your can see from the size chart they are 1 size off normal euro sizes but thats NBD its the width. My old Northwaves were a fairly wide shoe which I liked but these are even wider and with the new way they have attached the strap (that are extra long) you can't tighten them down enough to keep your heal tight in the cup. I love these shoes just wish they were a little tighter.
I first found this short in my BMC kit but I absolutely love it. It is one of the most comfortable shorts I have found. I am 162, 6-1, waist 32 and I wear the large comfortably if you want super tight maybe go down to a medium the straps stretch just fine not like castelli. I have 3 of these kits now the jersey I wear is a Medium.
This helmet actually made my head cold the first time I wore it the vents really do the job well! Haven't crashed with it so I can't testify for it intended use. I got mine using credit card points so price wasn't an issue. Shop for a deal online 230 is really a lot for a helmet even a nice one like this.
I liked these shorts for the most part. I am 175ish and 6'1" and the XL is the way to go. the chamois is great the fit is good on these they are really comfortable. EXCEPT..... they have NO leg grippers and they legs ride up and bunch at the crotch after a while and then they start to rub in the wrong place. I ended up sadly sending them back. I absolutely love my other Castelli shorts though so I will just have to try another style.
I am 6'2" 180 and the Large fit great. These are some of my favorite bibs. The only complaint I can make up about them is that the padding actually takes some time to break in but the fabric is wonderful and the fit is really great. They seem durable so far I have had 2 pair and loved both I am thinking of ordering a second.
I actually was able to get a hold of this work of art. It is amazing the amount of air that is filtered through this helmet. It's like an AC for your head while you are riding. It comes with a winter insert to keep some of the air out in the winter and keep you from freezing and also comes with an extra set of pads so you have extra when the first wear out. I have not herd any wind noise that others have complained of and I have not had to test it crashing ability yet. All around it is fantastic but to pay over $200 for a helmet is a little nuts (I used credit card points) I would wait until they come down personally but it you got the extra cash go for it.
So I bought these for my wife thinking they would be pretty sexy on her. She usually wears a medium in all the other shorts she has, so thats what I ordered. I just got the medium and there is no way she will fit in these. She's going to need like a large or XL. But I'm not gonna tell her that and get hit ;-)
Just be sure you order a size or 2 bigger than you usually get these run super small.
