This is a stunning looking stem and is super light. Yes it is very expensive however the quality feels remarkable. This was more of an impulse buy, but i do not regret it at all. I have this pair up with an Enve M7 bar and the combo as been a killer.

This carbon bar is beautiful, the quality is obvious from the moment you opened the box; i got this pair with a 35 mm Enve stem set up on my Nomad V4. i was concern about the rigidity of the bar, nevertheless i decided to give it a go. i got this to replace a Santa Cruz carbon bar and i could tell immediately that this bar is more rigid but in a good way. i feel turning is a little more precise, even though the bar is more rigid than my previous one my hands feel less fatigue and the sweep on this bar also feels more comfortable. What made my purchasing decision a go was that i found out that Enve has a crash replacement that i feel is more than fair; over all super happy with my new bar stem combo.

My reverb starting acting up a little bit and i decided to do the 200 hrs maintenance. After it came back the lever activation was never the same, got bleed it and the problem persisted. It would go down and it would not return up, it would get stuck in the middle or simply refuse to dropped! I almost pull the trigger on a fox transfer but i got the remote sustain lever thinking if the dropper still doesnt work i could still use it with the fox transfer. Well well it sure works!!!! the lever is machine beautifully, the texture on the lever feels great and the activation feels immediate. The dropper drops and pops in an instant, i feel like i have a new dropper, you do lose the speed control but i dont care i rather have reliability. I have been using it it in temps from 29 F to 40F and it simply works. Should had done this from the very beginning when i got my bike!!

This is actually my second pair of aggressor 2.3. I bought it to replaces a DHR II that I thought roll to slow. I have it in the rear pair to a DHF 2.5 on my Nomad V and I have been extremely happy. It only gives some in cornering grip which you will notice if push it to the edge; is really good on climbs. For me the trade is fair and I am more than happy with it .

Original review 4/2018, i gave it 4 stars:
I had great experience with Dainese products and I bought these to replace my Six Six One Rage Hard Knee Guard. They were good but had to adjust a couple of times during 2 hour rides and were hot in the summer; however protection wise they were solid. I have used the trail skins twice on two 10 miles rides. the first one had some substantial climbing and the second one was mostly flat with a few punchy climbs. Total number of adjustments = ZERO! So comfortable you forget you have them on. The only thing i notice on the first ride was that of the labels flapping around inside, i cutted them and the second ride was absolutely perfect. i have soccer quads and was at the max sizing of the mediums. I took a chance on the size and it was worth it. At first i thought they are to small but once you stretch them the Velcro and silicon keeps them in place. Make sure the strap is properly place other wise it will be itchy. The only reason i took off a star is because after the second ride a couple of the stitches on one of the straps came loose. I have not taken a spill on them, but i did slam hard my knee on concrete to see how they did, and you feel the contact but there is no pain transferring from the knee. Great comfort and so breathable, may be not the best for temps bellow 40 F or so. Will update on durability.

UPDATE 10/8/2018

I fixed the stitches that came off and have not have a problem since with them. I have managed to tested them a few times and they offer great protection even on enduro types trails, the side protection on this helps a lot. They still stay in place and are so breathable, they have stretched a little bit which made glad i went with the medium size. Only on heavy duty bike park days i dont wear them, besides that they are money! up dated too 5 stars.

I have use it a few times plus a few times in the gym. I breaths great, very well built. I have the black one with a green logo and it looks awesome. I runs a little on the small size, so add a size if you little this on the baggy size. If it was not so expensive it will stock up on this jersey, great colors.

Chain,Shimano XT CS-M8000 Cassette, Shimano XT RD-M8000 Rear Derailleurr) to convert my baby (2016 Santa Cruz Heckler) to a 1 x 11. After a 100 miles the shifter still working great. I could not be happier; all done at a very reasonable price. My only regret is that i did not changed sooner to a 1 x11

I bought this after Shae( She is great) from the bike dept at backcountry recommend it as part of the parts ( Race Face Narrow Wide Chainring, Shimano CN-HG600 11-Speed Chain,Shimano XT CS-M8000 Cassette, Shimano XT SL-M8000 RapidFire Trigger) to convert my baby (2016 Santa Cruz Heckler) to a 1 x 11. After a 100 miles the the derailleur is still smooth and is tougher that it looks. I had a couple of bad crashes that had me fearing the worst, however it is still going. I could not be happier; all done at a very reasonable price. My only regret is that i did not changed sooner to a 1 x11

After a 100 miles the cassette is doing great. I got the 11-42 with a 32T chain ring and so far i can climb anything here in Jersey. The cassette is on the heavy but that was not a concern for me. I could not be happier; all done at a very reasonable price. My only regret is that i did not changed sooner to a 1 x11

After a 100 miles I have not dropped my chain, some of those mile have been at bike park (mountain Creek NJ) which as some very rocky terrain. It looks good and performs like a champ, could not be happier; all done at a very reasonable price. My only regret is that i did not changed sooner to a 1 x11
