" I've used every Ultraboost to date for a variety of running/triathlon distances and I can confidently say these are the best version yet.
The knit feels softer yet the new fibres do a better job of securing your foot. The cage is again rigid (vs the softer '19 version) which again keeps your foot planted in the upper ad prevents any movement when pushing off or landing.
The boost and torsion bar work well together and offer a soft ride coupled wtth a spring you need, especially over shorter distances.
Whilst it may have become a fashion icon, the Ultraboost is still a running shoe at heart and I'll certainly be rocking up the miles in this latest version.

" This jacket has excelled during the winter months, keeping out the windchill and a considerable amount of the British rain. Its a really good slim fit, I opted for a small and wear it just with a base layer underneath. The hood has been designed to be worn whilst running and I can testify it stays in place should you need it.
Best of all, unlike alot of running jackets, it doesn't rustle when you run!
Love this jacket! "

" I bought the Machina based on the impressive reviews of both its ride and inbuilt metrics; neither have disappointed.
Its perfect for smashing out long distance training runs whilst light enough for when you want to pick up the pace. It's also nimble when you're doing interval training, which is impressive given the soft ride that the HOVR cushioning provides.
Its USP is the built in run pod which gives you all the data you could really need, including some that I haven't had available on 3rd party devices i.e. ground contact time and foot angle.
Really looking forwarding to running in the Machinas over the coming months.

" I bought this jacket to wear to and from events/training but have actually started to wear it during the winter months. With a tee or baselayer underneath, its perfect for cold frosty morning runs, its high collar keeping the chill out. The different panels allow for breathability in all the hotspot areas so that you don't overheat.
Overall, a well made garment that looks just as good casually as it does out on a run.

Fast, incredibly well specced Speed Machine

Country : United Kingdom

Interest : Triathlete

Gender : Male

" Having ridden previous Vitus TT bikes, I was excited to see Vitus release the Auro, so much so that I chose it over Felt and Q Roo as my new race bike for 2019.
The first thing that ticked the right boxes for me was the value for money in the set up; Zipp finishing kit, Prime deep section wheels & a 105 drivetrain.
Unlike many other builds where I've needed to replace the heavy cheap wheels and cockpit, this was race ready out of the box. At 9.6kg, its light enough for my longer distance triathlons where hills occur more frequently while the 11-30 chainset gives me enough either end for flats or inclines.
On the road, it feels planted especially in the wet and bends with little effect from side winds giving you confidence to get your head down and push the power.
I'd highly recommend this bike for anyone looking for a race bike out of the box or an extremely well priced bike to upgrade. 10/10

" I was always a fan of the adidas Supernova so when they upgraded it to the Solarboost last year, I didn't think twice about buying. The new Solarboost 19 is even better, more comfortable, increased stability at the heel and super responsive under foot thanks to the 'boost' material. The knit has also been upgraded especially around the toe box which you can really feel when picking up the pace or going up steps/inclines. I opted for the orange colourway which is super bright, perfect for night running!
For anyone searching for Supernova, here it is in a new and improved form!

How do I connect this to the valve

I have a presta valve which I assumed this would fit, but I cant seem to figure out how to attach the pump to the valve, it only seems to have the thread for a schrader valve. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
Staff Answer
Best answer
Twist the pump valve clockwise and it will loosen, allowing it to extend out from the pump. Then just screw onto the presta valve on your tyre.
