Does this fit the same as the Corsa model?
I'm almost 5'4", weigh 115 lbs, and wear an XS. Keep in mind that this is a race fit and it's supposed to be skin tight. It fits me perfectly in the chest (32" chest), arm cuffs, and belly area.
The photo shows a solid purple jersey, but the actual jersey is very thin and somewhat see through so it does not look like the photo exactly. I could see my bib underneath... Still a nice jersey though. The material is very soft and is not a waffle pattern so hopefully the UPF 50 rating is correct.
I have tried other women's gloves (Pearl Izumi and Louis Garneau), but these are by far the best gloves I have purchased due to comfort and build quality. I know these gloves will last me for more than a year of hard riding. I like that they have 2 pull tabs on the fingers so they come off easily. They do not hurt my "hand web" and the pittards are incredibly soft and absorb a lot of shock. They're also great for wiping away your snot if your nose runs constantly.
How to wash: I wash them in the washing machine and lay them out to dry. They dry very quickly (within a day usually)
my first thought was "wow a shoe that matches my bike!" as i have a pink Orbea Diva so i just had to purchase this shoe.
so far i've only been on 3 rides with it (30-50 miles+ each) and it was fairly comfortable. i have a hard time finding shoes because i have a bunion on my right foot, but this fits okay (perfect on my left foot). the SuperNatural Fit Kit is great since everyone has different needs when it comes to arch support.
in terms of performance, this shoe is very stiff and i saw an improvement in climbing as my old shoes were carbon fiber composites not full carbon fiber. some of the guys couldn't keep up with me on the hills. it must be the shoes :).
my only complaint is the tongue rides up pretty high on my foot and it gave me a blister so make sure you wear these shoes with higher socks than the no-show ones!
