Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I ordered the Red and Dark Blue jersey. On the pictures the red and dark blue jerseys have black sleeves but upon arrival they're grey. Also, the Dark Blue jersey shows a white zipper but the one I received is red.

Overall, the jersey feels good against the skin. It'll probably do well in the summer. Fit is 'regular' - runs large compared to traditional castelli garments so no need to size up. The raw sleeves are a nice touch. The rear pockets are basic and they'll hold up if you stuff them.

This is a really nice, lightweight bottle cage. Unfortunately, it's just way too tight (that's what she said). Inserting and removing my Camelbak Podium water bottles requires a lot of force and would be uncomfortable while riding. So I will be returning these post haste!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this to replace my Trasparente Due jersey and it hasn't disappointed.

The Trasparente Due jersey has windstopper on the chest but not the arms. This jersey has full windstopper, chest and arms, and the difference is tremendous - it really adds to the versatility. It enables me to wear this down into the high 40s without getting cold. If I add a Fawesome vest on top I can comfortably get into the mid 40s. I would grab a jacket below 43-44F.

Fit is European Slim fit. The jacket feels weird when not on the bike but 'clicks in' when you start riding.

There are a few things I don't like. The cuffs are supposed to lie flat so the edges look unfinished/raw. I'm concerned how this will wear after a few seasons. Secondly, I wish the pockets were a bit larger.

Overall, this jacket is awesome. I would definitely recommend.

These are okay but they lack protection against abrasion at the toe and heel. After looking at my riding shoes the toe has a lot of scuffs and has worn down a bit. So I opted to return these since it would most likely lead to ripping.

These bibs make a very good base for fall/winter/spring riding. You can pair these with knee warmers during chilly fall and spring rides and leg warmers during winter rides. I'd say these are good with leg warmers until 45F. Anything below and I'd recommend bib tights.

Not much to say about quality and material - it's Assos. Fit is similar to the t.equipe s7 bib shorts.

I've been using this helmet for a few months now and it's working really well. There are a few points to mention though:


1. I find that more sweat rolls down into my eyes and down my nose with this helmet in hot weather.

2. As mentioned previously, there are issues with sunglasses. The ends hitting the rear adjustable part and nowhere to place them securely.


Overall, the helmet is great. The ventilation is good and it doesn't weigh too much. If Kask can work on the two points above then it would be a really exceptional helmet.

This is really good helmet. On sale for $79 was a steal.

Previously, I had a Giro Savant and that thing always reminded me that it was on my head. The Air Attack is a different story. The helmet is light to begin with but with the retention system it sometimes feels as if you're not wearing a helmet at all - it's a great feeling. Venting is fine, I'm not sure how well it'll do in the summer. Note, as far as I can tell there's no way to "dock" sunglasses onto the helmet.

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

I thought these were good based on all the reviews but they just don't cut it for me. The wind stopper fabric works and it works very well. It is nicely placed around the thigh and knee area.

However, the lack of wind protection around the crotch is quite the disappointment. The wind seems to just pass through the fabric at this part of the bib. On my ride with these it literally felt like my members were exposed. A bit of a shame really. I'll probably see if CC will allow me to return them.

This is a fantastic summer jersey. It's very light weight and breathes nicely. Top quality fabrics and styling is great.

My only gripe:
I also purchased a small and will agree with the previous reviewer that it is too long in the back. Additionally, I find that the pockets are just a bit too roomy - if you like to stuff your pockets with bars, gels, spare tubes, etc. you'll find that everything will fit. However, if you generally carry less stuff it tends to move around.
