This is a great fitting, lightweight helmet. I've worn it on super hot days on high-mileage rides and never once felt overheated with it on. I definitely feel the chill through the vents on cooler days.
I really like the easy Roc Loc adjustment on this helmet - feels a little flimsy but it's fine as long as you're careful with it.
This jersey is perfect for those chilly, brisk days. I love the bright blue and the incredible softness inside. I normally wear a small in non-cycling clothing but was a little worried the medium Castelli might be too small. It was a perfect fit with still enough room for a thin layer underneath. I'd actually give this 4.5 stars if I could, because the zipper is scratchy if I fully zip it up for windier days. I wish there was an extra bit of fabric to protect the chin but I just end up leaving the zipper a little lower.
This was my first pair of clipless shoes and I am very impressed with the fit. I was able to try them on in person, so I didn't have a problem with size of the pair I ordered. For a mountain bike shoe though, it doesn't seem extremely durable - it seems to get scuffed fairly easily (got the silver/charcoal version). Hopefully it'll last a while since I only use it on the road.
If you get the right size, it's very comfortable and light and also looks sporty and feminine at the same time. Not clunky at all. I typically wear a size 8 in athletic shoes and size 40 works well for me.
I have heard good things about Pearl Izumi and these shorts don't disappoint. I got these online without finding lots of reviews so thought I'd post one up.
I had a pair of Pearl Izumi tights and wanted to get a pair of shorts that could be worn around town after a ride. These are great! I ordered a Medium because it was the only size available at the time, but the liner fits very comfortably. The chamois is thinner but I felt fine after a 30 mile ride. Normally I wear a small for tights but I like medium for regular shorts.
The baggy shorts themselves ended up looking a bit larger but the fabric is soft enough that it doesn't make it too bad. Although I don't use them, there is a nice touch with the belt loops. I tightened them from the inside a couple of notches. Since the outer shorts were looser, I thought the pockets were too baggy. It would be great if the pockets had a button or zippers to keep things secure while riding.
These are great for the price. I'd say I am between a small and a medium but I have no regrets from going with the larger size.a
