MatchMaker

The ENVE computer mount is a nice little gadget for your Strava hunting computer, IF you use the ENVE road stem. Installation was easy, and I like the dead-ahead mounting of my Garmin Edge 510. What I don't like; the extra long bolts supplied that allow you to mount this to your ENVE stem should be titanium, like the ones you take out.

Speed and Ventilation

In my past experiences with helmets speed has always come with a sacrifice in comfort and ventilation. After three months of use I can now say the Protone has blown that preconceived notion. The most notable difference compared to other aero products is the forehead ventilation and padding system, you can actually feel the air coming in! In addition, I found the multi-axis fit system to be very helpful when customizing contact points.
The only draw back I found was the limited size range, although I fit a small to a medium in most brands and the medium Protone fits me well.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

When I pick a bike I always want something that will offer me something new. New components, drive-train, carbon advancements, etc. New is fun and watching the bike industry make changes is exciting like watching new F1 or Rally Car advancements. But, there are some things that shouldn't change.
A bike should still ride like a bike; Climbing, descending, cornering, accelerating. It may seem cliche to say it, but there is a formula that works and it should be predictable.

I took my first ride on the Empire on 'The Empire Pass,' where most grades range from 15-20%. The Empire exceeded my expectations on climbing/comfort and was like on a train-on-rails descending a road I should probably go slower on.
