Stitching ripped. Do not buy.
So...The camo speaks to me. Puts me in my element. lmao. Quality Jersey, 3 pockets and a zipper side pocket for your electronics- a key feature for me ever since my iPhone went flying on a descent and smashed wit the sound of a dozen light bulbs... 3 back pockets, the usual drill, a steal at less than $40.00. I own 3...
I jumped on the sale...perfect for high 40s to 50s riding. I paid attention to the sizing chart and these fit perfectly. Good compression. I'm 5'10" and went with the XXL, spec'd at 36" for the waist, my size... The fit is race, the leg grippers stay where I put them. Happy so far, I've ridden a century with them and a few 40-60 milers. Comfort is good.
Very comfortable fabric. Breathes well. Paired with a short sleeve jersey I'm good for sunny high 40s through the 50s. With a windbreaker easily good down to the 30s. It's 35 in NYC right now and I'm heading out, with this base layer on.
Attaches simply and quickly. No magnets, pair automatically with my Garmin 510. Great sensors. 2000 miles so far.
Just an FYI...Fizik's 2015 Version of this saddle has a Kevlar reinforcement layer that renders it impervious to tearing!!!! Should be released shortly...
This is BS...multiple entries of this same device on this site. The "Map bundle" version has bad reviews here...they should be combined here. Seems as though this unit isn't living up to expectation for many folks...
Who actually manufactures these saddles? The same people that manufacture the Kurve for Fizik?
Head sizes please?
It's already done it's job. I just bought the damned thing less than 2 months ago and I smashed my Calabasa against the pavement today. The shell and foam buckled and delaminated but my head is in one piece!!!!
Thank you Kask for preventing additional loss of my already sorry IQ.
Great cleat, my first clipless experience. Frankly, everyone psyched me out about falling with these. So much drama over nothing!
I became instantly acclimated.
Then again on my first trip I went over the Brooklyn Bridge on a Saturday morning with gobs of crowds of people...I must have had to clip in and out at least 100 time each way...So, I gotta a lot of practice done on my first day with them.
A flick of the ankle, without even thinking about it, and I'm out. If I spaz out in some mud or on ice I pop right out as well.
1000 miles since November.
Some people talk about popping out with these when pulling through the pedal upstroke...I don't think you'd ever have that problem if you're feet have been properly aligned via cleat position/fitting.
Does what they should and they're cheap.
And comfortable. The chamois is understated but definitely does the job, it's nice not to feel like I'm wearing a pair of Depends... I don't know why there are gripes here regarding construction, no one has offered up any description of damage/tears, etc.. The stitching looks more than adequate upon inspection.
A good fit for me in large. I'm 5'10" @ 205#, my thighs measure 23" around.
You can't do better for $45.00
What's not to like? Great price, comfortable, merino wool, I like the hooks for over the thumb.
The material is stiff, and the wind blows right up yer knickers. Annoying to say the least; they make that "swishing," sound like bad 70's corduroys whilst one pedals as well. So, good well made shorts, I can see how they may appeal to some, but too bulky and cumbersome for my type of riding which is definitely more on the road side of things...
I love them...most excellent gloves, they do a superb job of laying down my knuckle hair and conserving at least 15 watts or so...
(Perfect fit in large for my 9" around hands...quite warm as well for a thin glove...I was out in 40~ today with some headwind, hands were cozy...)
Edit...I've reduced my rating to 2 stars because they've ripped at the stich between my fingers. I'm returning for an exchange and we'll see where it goes from there.
and...now one star. Hole wore through the palm, only 3000 miles on the gloves...
You have a sleestack ridge on top of yer head. I have Dinosaur dna or something and I got a bit of a ridge running down the centerline of my calabasa. I put the helmet on and it kinda teetered on my ridge no matter what...it felt irksome, bothered me...I think the strap system is real lightweight as well, as in...for this kind of money, meaning full retail, a more robust, rapid to adjust, strap system would be nice... the "comfort," pads are real cheapo as well....
You can fit a lot of stuff, nice heavy-duty zippers and it's out of the way under the top tube.
You'd be hard pressed to find a better product than Revelate's bags...
Oh man...this sucks, because this is an amazingly comfortable saddle...Mine cracked, I've only put in 500 miles on this saddle.
I've attached a picture. I'm returning the saddle for a refund. I've inquired with Fizik to see if they know of this issue. I mean, right here on comp cyclist are three reviews all stating the same issue.
Really, it's too bad my ass has never been this happy. The comfort is sublime. excellent shock absorption; goes a long way towards mitigating what comes up through the post.
Far more comfortable than the many conventional offerings I've tried...
No good. I wear glasses. I slapped it on, fits well, etc.. but when exhaling the air vented right up under my eyes and fogged my lenses. Useless.
