5th and 6th (I bought two) Rockymounts racks I've owned so far and they've all been flawless. With these, the 12mm adapter is a bit hard to fit to the rack but once it's there, it's very much there. THe've been solid so far at (unsafe speed) mph for prolong times on road trips.

I wore these on a photo shoot and automatically fell in [heart] with them. I'm a solid sock person who likes 'em race fit, like my kits. The materialization makes a lot of sense for the way our feet work on the bike with the right types of textures and thicknesses (or thinnessesses) in the right places. TLA.

I've used these several times throughout the winter and as they do their job nicely. The fit is great over Giro's Empire SLX shoes, but I could see where it could get tricky if you were to pull these over any three strap or BOA shoe.

One thing to note is that they don't have a cutout for the heel. It's unknown as to whether they intend for you to cut them out yourself based on your heel pad position or not. Otherwise they start to wear naturally.

I'll split this between my experience and my wifes.

I have a little over 300 miles on these tires and after years of riding cotton tires (Veloflex / Vittorias) they've taken a bit to get used to. On descents and aggressively around tight turns they tend to drift a tiny bit more than what I'm comfortable with, but it's something that I'm slowly getting used to after spending some time with them on GMR / GRR / Mt. Baldy.

From a durability and longevity standpoint my wife has been on these for the last year and a half with no sign of punctures or cuts, even when they're long in the tooth. She's arguably as aggressive as I am on the descents and hasn't complained about grip around the turns.

This is my second Synth Mips helmet and most likely not my last. From both a comfort and wind-noise standpoint it's a great helmet, all protective features aside. The ratchet system is flawless and the straps are pretty on par with the higher end helmets in the industry.

My only drawback is that they're slightly bulbous on narrower heads like mine.

These are great accompanied with knee warmers on days that you're not comfortable committing to full bibs due to varying conditions. If I were to tag suggested mileage to the chammy I would say it's worth about 50-60miles of comfort. The Windstopper material is pretty stiff and takes a bit to get on over the legs depending on how you prefer your sizing. Once they're on they're perfectly snug and provide a nice shield from the wind on chilly descents.

I'm one of those people who prefer neutral water temperatures for and bought these to use during the winter time when the cold air tends to cool water below what I consider drinkable. I've also used similar bottles for their intended use of keeping liquids cool in the heat and they're very reliable under both conditions.

I purchased this as a kit with some gore windstopper bibs as cool weather kit and i have Ø regrets. The fit is perfect, just a hair roomier than average race cut jersey that allows for a baselayer underneath. The design and production are both super clean with easy to access pocket height.

In the past I've ran a merino beanie over a standard cycling cap and I was looking to replace that 'system' with something better. The Giro cap fit the bill (no puns). Everything about this cap is top notch from the fit to the material quality. I'm looking forward to using this cap over the coming winter.

The half size is nice and efficient, saving you grief if you're the type of person who unzips and re-zips their jacket on rides. Without the excess of material there's not as much to get snagged in zippers or get odd bunches under the collar.
