Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently demo'd this light (with the helmet mount) during the 25 Hours of Frog Hollow race in Southern Utah. During the race we experienced all kinds of weather conditions -- wind, rain, hail, etc. This was the first time I've used the light, but found it very easy to set up and use. The helmet mount holds the light firmly, but I found it to be easily adjustable while hammering on the bike. The light itself seems attractive and durable in it's CNC machined casing, yet efficiently packaged and lightweight.

Using the light, I knocked out a few one-hour-ish laps on a single charge (used on "low" for the uphills, "high" on the super-fun, ripping downhill), and it still had life. The lower part of the course was pretty technical with plenty of rock slabs and gotchas (exposure, jagged rocks, desert fauna, etc), but I was able to make out the features clearly and maintain lap times consistent with daytime.

At this point, I have not yet tried the TAP technology, but plan to do so in short order given lack of daylight. I plan to post a follow-up once I've had more time with the product.

That said, I'm pretty stoked about my initial impressions.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

While always lightweight with strong tread patterns, the achilles heel of Schwalbe tires has long been the sidewall. The snakeskin sidewall on this tire has proven itself durable, yet preserving a lightweight package. I'd strongly recommend as a front tire, but typically prefer a more rounded, less chunky profile for our buff Park City trail system.

These are my go to grips, and have been for years (in different versions of course.) Why? They're comfortable as the subtle contour fills the void in your palm. So when you go for epic rides, you suffer less fatigue. Secondly, the end cap is slightly larger than the grip, providing additional leverage to pull against, and a comfortable reminder of the limits of the bar.

For those racing MTB and running 10-speed SRAM, this is your cassette. It's nearly 60 grams lighter than the XG-1080, and its skeletal design minimizes debris clogging the cassette.

The downside is obviously the price, as its not inexpensive. If it wasn't being used for race purposes, I'd probably opt for the XG-1080. Four stars for that reason.

The fine folks at Arundel nailed it with this cork tape. I've used it on numerous bikes, and it holds up well, all the while providing just enough comfort but a good feel for the bar. And the packaging provides all too humorous (but very true) instructions for installation.

Basic and functional. And the price is right too! The sleeves are longer than short, stopping just shy of the elbow, and it has a generous front zipper so you can air out on the steamier days. It has a one-zipper back pocket across the lower back, but the pocket is subdivided in two - 2/3 width, and 1/3, so you can separate items within the pocket.

Athletic (not Euro) cut once again from Mavic. super comfy without too much extra.
