Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After putting a decent amount of miles on my new chanring, I can say that I'm an oval fan for life! I have always tended to be a "masher" on my pedals and sometimes struggle to find a good rhythm during long climbs. The oval design has really helped me smooth out my pedal stroke and gain some efficiency while going uphill. I was skeptical of the oval making my pedal rotations feel strange but I don't notice any difference from my normal round chainring.

As far as quality goes, I can tell that its a well-made product that will last me a long time. It also doesn't hurt that Absolute Black offers it in some awesome colors so you can bling out your bike!

My stock saddle on my mountain bike was causing me to go numb in the legs pretty quickly into my ride. The discomfort was bad enough to cause me to cut my rides short. I replaced it with the Blaster and I haven't felt any numbness even deep into a long day in the bike. Very happy with it and would reccomend it to anybody expierencing discomfort while on the bike.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been super impressed with these shoes so far. I have been using the Freerider Canvas shoes by Five Ten for the past few years and while they were good, I was looking for something a bit more performance-based rather than a glorified skate shoe. The Freerider Pros are a slimmed down, stiffer version which is great for someone looking to pedals uphill as much as descend without clipless pedals. The soles have that grip that I've come to love with passed FIve Ten shoes as well.

Super stoked on these glasses. I thought my Smith ski goggles made it easy to swap lenses but these are even easier. Essentially the arms clip on and off of the lens so you can swap them in seconds. No more struggling with glasses lenses and smudging them right before a ride. Great fit and mesh great with my POC helmet.
