Aqua Sphere Kayenne Goggles
With its unique, oversized lens design, the Kayenne combines expanded 4-point vision with superior hydrodynamics thanks to its low-profile micro-frame. This combination makes the Kayenne a perfect choice for a competition, in a pool or open water.

" I've got 2 pairs of these, 1 tinted and 1 clear and have used them a lot in training and races. The fit is great - letting no water in - and the strap adjusting system is solid and much better than the usual speedo type system. Visibility is also very good with these. Had a number of people ask me where I got these from as they also look good. Very good if you do a lot of open water swimming/triathlon. "
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Good Fit

" So I'm not massive right. I prefer to say 'well built'. As an ex-rugby player I do carry a bit more meat up top than most cyclists but despite buying an XXL I could barely get the thing on. My wife described it as 'pornographic'. Pretty sure you could see my lunch through it. Anyway - great top - but I'd say only for the hardcore cyclists who are small enough to get it on without losing circulation or self-respect! "
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight

" First thoughts on getting the trainer out of the box is that it feels of high quality. The tacx is very sturdy and well manufactured. Assembly was a bit fiddly I seem to remember, but once assembled its a doddle to pop the bike in and out for use. You can fold it away easily enough or keep it setup. I currently have my tt bike locked in it so it is also serving as a good stand in the garage!
I've used this for one a bit winters now - and would recommend it. It is quiet running, easy to use and has a decent spread of functionality. I've linked up the cadence sensor and HRM monitor so use it's full range of functions. I mostly train on the wattage setting for intervals but it also has a gradient setting. The other good thing is that it keeps my totals even when I unplug the computer - glad to see nearly 1000m on the clock...perhaps I should actually go outside! "
Pros: High Quality, good build quality, high level of functionality

A great pair of socks makes a big difference in foot comfort. Castelli have constructed the main foot part of the sock in Air Mesh to enhance breathability and given it a central foot band for support.

" Bought these just before Christmas and been very pleased with them. They are ver comfortable and helped alleviate some rubbing I used to get from my shoes (tri shoes with just a single velcro strap).
I bought the red ones and they look great.
I bought the large/x-large ones - am a size 10.5 UK and they fit fine although don't have much more stretch in them. Pretty sure that they would be fine for anyone between a size 9 and an 11. "

" Bought on of these and then another as I was so impressed with it. I had lost a bottle in a race using a different type of bottle holder - not had a problem with this one.
I use this with the Camelbak podium bottle and it fits perfectly - no rattling and the bottle never pops out. "
Pros: Durable, Good Fit, High Quality

" Had these for about a month now - only used them whilst on the turbo but they are very comfortable. Padding is good and they are a comfortable fit.
I took a Large - I'm 6'2", about 87kg and a 33 waist. I am a bit bigger on the chest than the normal cyclist and thought they would be uncomfortable to begin with but they have been absolutely great.
Black and white look really - although the missus says I look like a badger. "
Pros: Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Value

Does anyone know if a Garmin HR strap works with this product? Thanks!

My garmin one didn't (the one that came with my forerunner) so I bought a polar one instead that works fine with it. Guess it depends on your type of heartrate moitor type.
