"The airflow through the helmet is not as good as the MET Estro it replaced. Even with a much cooler summer than usual I could feel the difference.
The sweat pad over the forehead part is quite thin and wears quickly and comes loose.
The winding adjuster is good, makes fitting easy when you swap between a cap on the commute in and bare head on the ride home.
Lastly, as it finishes at a point in the middle at the front I am forever having to adjust it get it to sit straight. It only needs to be a fraction off and it looks like you are wearing it at an angle, a point my gf just loves to point out."
Pros: Great Value, High Quality
Cons: Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit

Summer Short Finger Cycling Gloves
Technical Summer gloves with a tailored race fit and advanced Assos fabrics for hot weather performance. The shock absorbing padded palm provides cushioning on long rides and the velcro-less construction slips on and off with ease.
"Fabric seems too thick for the purpose given some of the competition out there. Feels like there would be too much friction and they would impede leg movement a little. May get softer with more use and washing?
Anyway, I returned these pants as they were too small in the thighs at the correct waist measurement.
"Bought these gloves for below 0 degree commuting. Was hoping to be able to use the glove with no inner glove. Unfortunately not windproof enough to handle below zero temps without a cotton inner glove.
On the upside the glove did very well keeping my hands dry on a rainy commute home last week.
They seem to take about average time to dry when compared to other winter gloves i have tried.
in summary - very good 0 to 8 degree waterproof glove. Not windproof enough to be used by itself below zero."
Pump holder is no good. You are better off getting the plain bottle cage and using the holder than comes with the pump.
This holder relies purely on doing the strap up really tight to prevent the pump moving/rattling. With the holder supplied with the pump you 'snap' the pump into the holder and the strap is just there as additional insurance."
Pros: Great Value
Cons: Poor Quality, Unadjustable, Low Quality, Poor Fit
