First impressions after a few rides. I normally wear Sidi Dominator 44 mega and the Lake 44 wides are an identical fit. The shoe did not get wet after stepping down multiple times in wet snow ( unlike my sidi's) and were warm when pedaling. However, my feet did get cold (17F) on the down hill sections (which were pretty long, face got frosty too). I think some chemical toe warmers will help this next time. But each time I started pedaling back uphill they warmed up. The lacing system is awesome, I was initially worried about this. They are not bulky and are super comfy, I basically do not know they are there. I tried the Sidi Diablo's and did not like them. Would highly recommend the lakes for cold/wet trail riding in the snow.
I didn't want to spend nearly 2X as much on a 1500 or 2000 lumen light and decided to try the 500 lumen version. After a few rides in the snow at night (fat bike) I am super impressed with how bright it is. Granted the reflective surface of the snow probably helps quite a bit so I am looking forward to summer to test out how it does in a more light absorbing environment. With that said, I feel like I can rally pretty much everything at speed and not hold back because of limited vision. I have the light mounted on my helmet with the included mount and keep the battery in the back of my shirt. I have a long torso and the cord is just long enough and does not hinder movement. It is so light that I don't even know its there. I wish it came with a tether for the cord on the back of my helmet but I just rigged it with a zip tie. Have not truly tested battery life yet but am happy with my purchase.
In the picture there is a cadence sensor and heart rate monitor...but in the sidebar it specifically says no HRM. Is this the bundle version?
