Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use DNDs almost every day for commuting, road riding, and some dirt shredding. Giro labels these as dirt gloves, but they're amazing all-rounders. Whether I'm in the drops, or on risers, I absolutely love the barfeel of the DNDs.

The gloves obviously don't have any velcro, so they look super clean, but that means they take a bit of a beating taking them on and off. I've had some quality issues with the gloves coming unstitched (mainly in the lycra expansion panel). But the feel, looks, and cost keeps me coming back for more pairs in more colors. These gloves fit me fairly snug, so I size up one size from my other Giro gloves.

I love the brighter colors and use them for extra visibility during my commutes during the winter and fall. Despite their lightness, I've found they keep me warm down to the mid to lower 40s, but anything lower than that and I'm struggling to keep warm.

Bottom line: These are winners for whatever bike I'm taking out, in almost every condition.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Riding in the Southern US, it's easy to overlook winter pieces like 3/4 bibs. But they're easily one of the most versatile pieces of kit I have. When my old performance bike 3/4 tights failed, I knew it was time to step it up. I've ridden Giro Helmets, gloves, & shoes for years, so I decided to take a chance on their bibs too.

The fit on these is incredible. They're supportive, but not restrictive. The CyTech chamois is a dream, and the Roubaix fabric keeps me cozy down to lower 30s (I tend to ride quite hot).

I love how the minimal branding looks good with all my kits, and yet I could wear it on a trail ride, and not look like a complete dork on my daily commutes either. The reflective hits on the back of each calf are unobtrusive but provide amazing passive visibility when you need it.

Highly recommend these bibs. Some of the most comfortable I've ever worn.

Wow. I always wondered what all Oakley techno-jargon meant-- to boil it down these glasses kick ass. These Flak Jacks are so light and they fit my head perfectly. The XLJ lens gives me the extra coverage I need when I'm riding my bike. That hydrophobic coating on the lens makes water and other gunk bead up and fly away. I'm throwing my Smith Sliders in the effing garbage can.
