Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have to wonder what other kind of glove that folks are using in these reviews that they think are warmer than these. These gloves are not too heavy, but for the weight they are very warm. The upper fabric is pretty tough and does not breath well. This is noticeable. The lowers are beefy and padded (not too many like that these days). That said, for the warmer days I'd go for the Index Air, or the 100% Celium (my choice). However, for days when the temps are 70s or less, I like the protection these give. I both appreciate the palm padding and the knuckle padding. Recently in Park City, my right hand made good contact with a tree at speed (damn those pesky wide bars). The pinky and ring knuckles were OK. It tweaked my shoulder and I didn't even notice till later. If it weren't for the padding in the knuckle I'm sure I would have been even more hurt. That said, I have two seasons on the gloves and they're wearing very well.

It gets hot here in Tahoe. These gloves are perfect. In the light colors (mine are white and green) they have a minimal very cool fit. They protect my hands from both the sun and my grips and are very comfortable.

I bought this helmet for my son who is finally large enough for a size small adult helmet. The helmet was on sale, so why not go with one that offers this kind of protection. He raves about how light and cool it is (both literally and figuratively). He's very happy with it and I'm happy knowing that it offers advanced protection.

What makes this shirt great is the technical fabrics with which its produced. It is a great middleweight piece of gear. In a dark color it is pretty warm on a sunny day, but on cooler days it both keeps you dry and cool, and without direct sunlight does a good job up to 80 degrees.

These shorts have more of a freeride cut with a length that will come down for most below the knee. They're comfortable with low profile knee pads. The side vents are great and downright necessary on warm days. There are lots of vented pockets too. Some could be bigger but I leave them open on warm days as well. The high back won't have you showing your crack either.

After purchasing a bike with a slacker seat tube and a different stock seat, I was finishing long rides feeling like I'd been kicked in the nuts. It took me some time to figure out what was going on as it would take some time for the discomfort to settle in. That said, once I figured out what was going on, I replaced the stock seat with this one and have not looked back. Its been a huge difference. Not only has this seat been more kind to my sit bones, but it also has not left me with that gutted feeling.

Like all Selle Italia seats, workmanship is beautiful as well.
