3mm Stretch Neoprene toe cover removes the chill factor on dry, cooler Spring/Autumn rides. Easy to fit and remove, great on it's own or layered under a lightweight overshoe for extra protection.

" Found this to be a good set of lights. Compared it to a similar Planet Bike one and found the front and rear lights overall brighter.
Only slight issue is that the fit for the front light on a standard handle bar is very snug. Not a lot of room for adjustment. The attachment needs a little more diameter. "
Pros: Great Value, Adjustable

The sizing guide was spot on; I'm 5'9" or 175cm with 34" waist
Would definitely recommend.

" Size guide was realtively accurate taking into consideration other reviews who mentioned concern with length. 178cm height and 86cm waist, weight 77 kgs. So on the chart I was in the Medium range. As others have said the length was a little short, so I opted for the Large size. Also the fit around the waist in the large is snug so figure a medium would have been too tight.
Overall the fit is comfortable with room to put another layer underneath for those extra cold rides. The sleeves could be considered slightly long for my size, but figure it will cover the gloves and not be a big issue.
The quality was great - zipper works well, neck cover is good "
Pros: Comfortable, Good Fit

 Schwalbe Durano Plus Performance Folding Road Tyre
Schwalbe Durano Plus Performance Folding Road Tyre
The Schwalbe Durano Plus offers maximum puncture protection for race bikes. This lightweight tyre features their SmartGuard belt that offers a unique level of protection for racing tyres. It's also their most puncture protected road tyre.
 

Is this the same as the Durano Plus Tyre ?

Hi

How does this tyre compare to the Durano Plus Tyre (http://www.schwalbe.com/en/road-reader/durano-plus.html) ? Does the 'performance' description correspond to any differences ? Or is it just a newer model ?

Fit compared to DHB Vaeon Reflex Bib Tight

Hi

How does the fit compare to the Reflex bib tight ? I previous purchased a Medium in the Vaeon Reflex padded bib tight as I'm 34" waist and 5'9" height, which is a great fit.

I notice in the comments it's suggested to go up a size due to the thigh wind proofing so interested to know if the fits the same as the other DHB bib tights ?

167cm (5'7"); 38-39" Chest (96-99cm) and 73-75 kg - Correct size is?

I would like to know correct size (not in the position to try them prior or the additional costs for return). Are these a comfort, slim or relax fit and will these accommodate small changes in weight and chest growth.
I would go for the medium size. It's a comfort fit, although the sizing guide from DHB says slim. The only consideration is waist size since the Large, which i chose is snug on the waist as expected with the silicone grippers and i'm on the upper end of the medium size range, using their chart.
