Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Helmet is relatively light, sits on the head OK. Be sure to take note of the shape of the opening as the medium fits my head very snugly and would tighten during exercise. Overall I liked the helmet but the padding wore out and back of head retention broke after 1 season (maybe 160 hours?) of riding. Side note: There is a red tail hawk nearby that likes the shape of this helmet and I found that a bit concerning.

I had the prior year's extreme tech plus MTB shoes. I liked them for longer races as my feet did not get hot spots but they were heavier than my SIDI DRACO's. These new northwave's are awesome. I love them and they helped me to my best Leadville 100 time. The only downside is that they don't do well, like all light carbon shoes, in hike-a-bike scenarios. They are chewed up on the bottoms after only one race with hike-a-bike. The new adjusters are a major plus but use a logic a bit different than a BOA or the sidi wire adjusters.

This is my saddle of choice for ultra-endurance racing. I have switched all my bikes to ergon saddles as these work well for long rides and races. This is the best on the market. I do not go numb on these saddles. Get the proper size for your body and you too will be a believer. They break in a bit over time (200 miles or so) I find that they're well damped and do not have the bendy saddle feel. +1 bike = order another ergon pro carbon.

better when your hands are not covered in dirt but they are tasty. I think they taste better during exercise than just sitting around the house getting fat. They are not as good when paired with mud/cow dung on the flint hills of Kansas. I prefer the Orange flavor.

Raced the DK200 with this on the top tube of my Specialized Crux. IT stayed put for the length of the race which was WET, Muddy, and generally hell. This held one tube, a vial of chain lube, a tire lever, 1 PRO bar fuel, and 2 gu gels. It was at max capacity in this scenario but worked like a champ. I'm keeping this guy around. I was careful to tighten and fully engage the velcro straps prior to the start of the race. Around mile 150 it did rotate about 5 degrees but at this point It was soaked and not falling off so I did not care.

Not great on the gravel road racing side. IT worked and I never dropped anything (I did not use the CO2 option!) as a result of this piece. I was not fond of the mounting hardware as it was a bit finicky. The mount itself feels flimsy. The instructions were OK. Again, it did not damage my carbon rails but the rubber buffers were chewed up at the end of 200 miles. I would not recommend this for gravel racers looking to hold more water bottles, but I would not discount this for a tri bike with alloy seat rails.
