Here's what others have to say...

5 5

I recently purchased this pack upgrading from a smaller volume Osprey. First off, after years of riding with Camelbak packs...a friend suggested I try Osprey. I really like their packs.

This pack has just enough bells and whistles to make it really useful. The access to the innards is made simple by a couple well placed zippers. The 3 compartments make it really easy to carry everything I need for 2 hr, 4 hr, and all day rides. The main compartment (where the water reservoir is contained) is big enough for extra clothes. I use the left side secondary compartment for tools, CO2, pump and tube (for a spare). The right side secondary compartment is just the right size for food, etc. The helmet dock on the exterior of the pack is very useful.

Bottom line, love it.

Holy Venting, Batman!

I finally got a new lid. After years of riding in Giro helmets, I saw the POC Octal at Interbike last year and was pretty impressed. When I got a chance to buy one, I bit the bullet.... Initial impressions are favorable. Two words: Air.flow.

Pros:
Lightweight (very light), fit is great (I have a 5 7/8 size head and the medium fits great), no pressure points at all, great color (blue), not "ugly" as has been described in some corners of the review world.

Cons:
Retention system isn't that adjustable compared to Giro/Bell. The yoke system doesn't allow for that much adjust-ability. The upside, for me, is that right out of the box the fit worked fine. The second problem is that the back of the helmet (just behind the ears) interferes with the arms of sunglasses....I've found that the arms of my Tifosi glasses bend downward which keeps them clear of that part of the helmet.

All in all...fairly happy with it.

Once you choose your frame (ex. Black/Red, XS), a second pull down menu will appear:

select your package - click here to select your parts kit

After you select your parts kit (please read through the copy for compatibility) click on:

configure bike

This will give you a complete list of parts.

If you have any other questions, call/chat with the Customer Solutions team for BIKE and they can help place the order for you.

Deceptively Warm and BRIGHT!

I bought these gloves for an upcoming CX race to see how they'd perform. I wore them on a 1 hr ride in moderate temps (55 deg). First off, the fit is great. I bought a size small and the gloves fit...well, like a glove. The fingers aren't bulky and are just the perfect length on all four fingers/thumb. Secondly, the material is minimal for the warmth provided....still am shaking my head about it. Third, Fluoro....fluoro is the new black. Very visible...visible is good.

Solid Product

I just bought these knee warmers and have these initial impressions.

I've owned a number of brands of knee warmers (Assos, Pearl Azumi, Giordana, Castelli) and these are a real solid product for the price. Sugoi, unfortunately, isn't on a lot of peoples radar but they should be...they make pretty nice stuff at a good price.

The details on these warmers (seams, length, grippers) work well. My inseam is about 28 inches and at mid thigh, the bottom of the warmer hits just below my calf. What I like about the bottom of the warmer is that it fits tight around my lower leg. The seams, although minimal, are flat lock-ish and are sewn with knee bend articulation in mind. The thigh grippers keep the warmers up. Everything about this product is simple...it's a knee warmer....not "tube sock" simple but just enough frills.

The weight of the material is just thick enough to work well in the 50 deg (and warmer) range coupled with your favorite embrocation (my choice is either Mad Alchemy Warming Pre-Ride Oil or DZs Nuts medium heat) and you're good to go.

I bought the A.I.R. 9 in August (size Small) and cobbled together as a SS: 32x20T drivetrain (EThirteen guidering/Surly cog), Fox Float CTD fork (100mm travel), Shimano XT brakes, Shimano XT crank set (revived for this purpose), XT hubs laced to WTB rims (TL), SRAM 9 speed chain, Easton EA70 stem, Niner carbon bars/seat post, Selle Italia saddle, ESI chunky grips, XTR pedals and finally GEAX Saguaro tires.

I'd not previously ridden a carbon bike (other than my road bike) so I was really psyched the first time I took it on the trail. Very stiff (climbing), responsive handling (cornering), and overall comfortable in the saddle. At 5'-7"ish, the fit on the size small was spot on (saddle a touch forward from center with a 90mm stem). The carbon bits (bar/seat post) made riding in the saddle a pleasure.
