I have a pretty big Asian head so its very hard to find a low profile helmet that fits me well. I came from using a Specialized Echelon and this helmet looks 110% better. When considering helmet upgrades, I had my eyes on the S-Works Prevail and the Giro Aeon but both looked ridiculously bulbous on my head (I wear a size large for both helmets). The Prevail looked slightly better than the Aeon but it was bulbous all the same. The Lazer Genesis has a great low profile on my head and don't feel embarrassed about walking around with a helmet anymore. My only complaint is the weight, which is definitely a lot more than most higher end helmets. I guess you could argue that their unique buckle system is partially to blame. The other option would be to get the Helium which is slightly lighter than the Genesis but is more bulbous in appearance due to the fact that Lazer wanted to have larger vents on the helmet. In then end, I went with the Genesis because the ventilation was pretty much the same between the two; the Genesis clearly wins on aesthetics between the two.
I have problems with blood circulation in my feet, so the minute my feet cold they will stay cold (or even go numb) for most of the ride. These solved that problem perfectly without causing excessive heat to build up inside the cover. Make sure you follow the sizing chart when buying these. I wear an EU43 which falls into their 'Large' category. I didn't think my feet would be labeled as 'Large' and thought the chart might be wrong so I ended up sizing down to a 'Medium' which was a big mistake. I ended up having to send back my pair in exchange for a 'Large'. They also have the possibility of causing irritation on the back of your heel where the zipper is. I've had the problem a couple times but usually I can find a spot where the zipper won't bother me.
Great tool that everyone should have. I used to just use my multi-tool for any bike tinker that I needed to do. If you've ever used a multi-tool you know how much of a pain they are to use. Now that I have this tool tinkering on my bike is that much faster and easier. I'm more inclined to dial in my bike just right because its easy. Before I would just leave things as they were because it was too much of a hassle. Solid tool!
No complaints about these socks! Pure white with two 'Endura' logos on each sock cuff. They wick great, are pretty thin, and come pretty cheaply for bike specific socks. My only complaint is that they should be an inch or two taller! Either way, I'll keep buying these!
