" I have tried for a long time to find a comfortable saddle which is relatively light. The TI Endurance has been the answer. It is well made with titanium undercarriage and the cover seems to be hard wearing. Extremely good value compared to other far more expensive saddles which have not been comfortable. The only down side is the graphics which appear to be garish and could be more refined. "
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight
Cons: Limited Color Choices, cheap graphics

" Before ordering this jersey I took note of the previous reviews regarding sizing ie, the sizes are a tight fit and to order the next size up. My normal fit is Large but I ordered an Extra Large and it fits perfectly.
The jersey is ideal for this time of year with a fleecy lining - just enough to keep out the Springtime chills. The full length zip makes for easy access and removal. The jersey has 4 back pockets, one with a zip for your valuables - a nice touch.
Quality and appearance are both very good for the price charged and I cannot think that some of the more expensive jersey could perform any better than the dhb. Definitely exceptional value for money. "
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit, zipped back pocket
Cons: order the next size up

" I am more than pleased with the dhb Pace Roubaix Tight with pad. The quality of the fabric and its performance during the cold weather has been outstanding. Fit is exceptional and the pad does everything I would expect from this manufacturer. I'm told the appearance is also great and they feel very comfortable. The tights would still be very good value at double the price. An improvement would be to put more/larger reflective strips at the bottom of the legs near the ankle. "
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: add reflective strips at the bottom of the legs

" The tyre is everything I hoped for. The small flints on the Norfolk roads are a big problem but since fitting these tyres I have not had a puncture. The fitting was relatively easy. The grip in wet weather is superb and generally the tyres have good rolling properties. You cannot beat this tyre for reliability and durability. Ideal for winter, training or leisure cycling. "
Pros: Durable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality, Rugged

" Completely satisfied with the jersey - second time round.
Followed the size chart for my chest size but when the jersey arrived it was too small - asked for 'large' (according the chart) but should have asked for XLarge. Perhaps the size chart should be amended.
The appearance, value and quality of finished cannot be faulted. On odd occasions the jersey seems to get a little sticky.
Would recommend to buy but go for the size larger than that shown on chart. "
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight, difficult to find better

What season can I wear?

I want to buy a jersey for winter like thermo jersey.
Is it for winter or spring / fall ?
The fleecy lining is ideal for this time of year (Springtime). Would recommend a base layer if used in winter/colder temperatures.
