My wife is on her second or third pair of these. Needless to say, she likes them a lot. She only runs indoors and gets 3-4 months out of a pair(600-800miles). She wears a 7.5B in most other shoes but wears an 8 in these, so they may run a touch small.
Has anyone used both the HI Persimmon and the regular Persimmon? I'm looking for something to use mostly for mtb' ing in the woods where conditions can range from very sunny to very shady.
The 50oz capacity is perfect for about 90min. The pocket has room for a phone, keys or a few gels. It is very tiny. You will not fit anything that you don't have to have. This reservoir doesn't have the quick connect like the bigger ones do, but the fill port is the same.
You probably need levers to get yout tire off. What if you get two flats in one ride with only one extra tube. You're going to have to patch one of them. Stick on patches are much easier to use than glue on patches on the side of the road or in the woods. Good idea, Park, to sell them together.
I definitely should have bought several pairs of these. Great moisture and temperature management, not to mention, great cushion where you need it.
Last year I mostly wore a pair of Windstopper sofr it yet, but it fits really well and packs down really small. t shell uninsulated gloves with a pair of Outlast liners . They worked ok at best. These have substantially more insulation than the previous combo. I'm optimistic that they will work well. Will update later.
These were the first Ergon grips I tried. I do in fact have pretty large hands. I wear XL and even XXL gloves, so I tried the large size grips. They were fine riding on flat, open bike paths etc, but riding on single track trails, I felt like I was wearing mittens or something. I don't think it really matters how big your hands are, these just are not designed with bike handling in mind. If you intend any off road, technical use, try a different model like the GS1 or GX1. If you just plan on cruising around the neighborhood and such, these will be fine.
Do regular patch kits work on the latex material?
