This base layer is not for the faint of heart! It is a seriously warm piece! It fits snug, vents well, has the advantage of being a half zip and most importantly it does what it says! It keeps you warm and the wind out. I save this one for the coldest of rides. If it ever goes on sale I am stocking up! Worth its weight in gold!

These gloves do a fantastic job in the wind and the 40+ degree temps. The only reason I am giving them 3 stars instead of 5 is because they run small. I used the size chart, My fingers are snug to the point that I probably should have returned them, but too lazy and or cheap. if you are near the size edge, size up. I wish they would just get the sizing righ,t as returns are pricey!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

When I first tried these on I was instantly offended by the seams, so much so that I was hesitant to ride in them and considered sending them back. But I though, hey these are Assos, no way they could screw up a sock that bad. So I tried it. I have to say the sock was supremely comfortable in my cycling shoe, never noticed the seam, and no after cycling marks either. My only real complaint is that for the price of these nice WARM socks, they are pretty short! I would have appreciated and extra 1-3 inches of cuff especially at the $$$ they charge. Hence the 4 stars. Cool colors by the way, but too bad no PINK!

This sock is the best! Cute, warm (36+ degrees) and great length for knickers or thighs to give you a little extra warmth. My only comment would be that compared to other Assos socks these seem a bit large, but not worth sending back for smaller size. I would just order down a size next time.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This Jacket is being returned for a couple of reasons. First it runs really small. I am always a small and this one fits like an xsmall, esp through the chest and is a bit short waisted as well. It this were the only issue I would exchange it, but the fabric for the front and the sleeves is kind of scuba suit feel and is just too bulky and stiff for my liking. The arms are especially uncomfortable and have diagonal seams running at the bend in your arm. The back however is Hi-Vis well vented material. Its like a winter jacket on the front and summer weight on the back. Too much $$ to take a chance on test driving it and hoping I like it. So returning it untried.

i loved this jersey as soon as I opened the package and tried it on! Great color Scheme (red/blk), really nice material and workmanship. But it runs big. I am normally a sm, so tried to exchange for xsm. Sadly it is permanently out of stock:( wish companies paid more attention to their size charts. Frustrating to have to pay return shipping based on company inaccurate info.

I was so excited to find this jacket in Pink, so I was pretty disappointed when I tried it on. The fit is ....well..frumpy. I ordered a size sm, my normal size, and it is quite roomy. If I had gone by their size chart I should have ordered med! The rear pockets have so much excess material that it sags and bags below the hem line. It would be a great commuter jacket, but not liking it for everyday road rides. This one has to go back:( the fabric is really nice and the overall workmanship are good.

This vest would get 5 stars IF I could get into my jersey pockets! I find it very cumbersome to access my jersey pockets whether on the fly or stopped, as the vest only zips down from the top, and has no rear pockets or rear access to your pockets. Trying to peel it up with long fingered or winter gloves is trying at best. Because of that I tend to save this vest for short rides only when digging for a snack is not an issue. Other then that, the fit, wind resistance and comfort are great. Now back to the drawing board to find a better desinged vest!

i was so taken aback by the taste of this product...and not in a good way! It had the consistency of warm puréed figs/prunes, which personally I find highly offensive! I ordered the Orange flavor..and I think I had my mouth watered up for something, anything..other then prunes! Once you get past the taste, you realize the individual serving size is huge, more then you probably want to swig down in one effort. Did it work? Well I didn't bonk, so I have to give it some credit in the fuel department. But that's the only nice thing I can say about it!

I read the reviews before ordering two of these sweatbands, one in each color. Unlike some of the other reviews, I liked this band in terms of performance. I had no sweat in my eyes whatsoever. The band was soaking wet upon completion of my ride, so it did it's job. In terms of comfort, I found it a bit snug an scratchy, but I have a lot of hair. I guess I am spoiled by the soft winter castelli headbands. I am Keeping both of them and overall they work as stated. They get 3 stars for their tight scratchy fit, but I would give them 5 stars for their wicking ability.

As seat bags go, this one is beautiful. Well constructed, minimal profile w a very clean tailored look about it. I have the dual w the red piping.. Matches my bike perfectly and does not detract from the bikes racy profile. It's a tight fit around the seat rails, and would have liked a bit more Velcro strap to work with, but it stays in place even over tough roads. Very tight fit inside, if u intend to carry two tubes, levers and air. I personally could only fit one in there comfortably w all the other necessities. All in all, love the bag. If you pack the kitchen sink, perhaps not the right choice for you. If your bike has to look good and u are conservative w your necessities it's perfect!

law816083644wrote a question about on May 10, 2014

This is the second pair of body paint 2.0 shorts I have tried. Both of them had the same defect. THe front edge of the chamois is rolling up/doubling over. I thought the first pair was just a fluke, but didn't even try on the new ones, they came straight out of the bag like this. Has anyone else had this issue. I really want to like these, but not willing to fight w the chamois. Hate to order a third pair only to find its just how they are made?

I can't quite figure out the "bio" portion of the bibs from the description printed. Can someone provide a detailed description of how this system works. Is there a zipper that goes all the way around? How hard is it to reattach the shorts to the bibs? I am hesitant about its ease of use. Thinking it might still be faster to strip off the jersey? Also can anyone comment on the mile range and wickability of the chamois? Thanks!

I guess its called Niterider for a reason.....its good for riding at night. I find it to be totally useless during the day. The strobe and solid pattern are all but invisible in daylight. I have seen several tailights out there with super bright LED in the middle of the day, only wish I could have caught up w them to find out what model/brand they were using. The first one I ordered was defective and I sent it back, I should have left it at that. Probably a great light for the dark, as advertised, but have not tried it in that venue. THe clip is secure, and the on off operation is simple.

I own a gazillion skull caps/ ear warmers that work on some level, but fail on some level... THen I tried this one. It is absolutely, hands down perfect. It is warm, lightweight, stays in place over my ears and has a ponytail slice in the back which works perfectly. Soooo comfy, you don't even know its there (except that your ears are no longer frozen!). Eliminates the forehead marks and is thin enough to allow me to wear a skull cap over it if the temps are in the lower 40's. I will be buying an additional one in another color. It is one of those don't leave home w/out it pieces for me.
