3T Arx LTD Stealth Stem 3T Arx LTD Stealth Stem
Satin black is cool. Many of today's top-shelf bikes are designed with a menacing mix of gloss and satin black. To upgrade one of these race-bred rigs with bright, shouty components would defeat the purpose. To hang your handlebar on anything less than the 3T ARX LTD Stealth Stem would be nothing short of sacrilege. The 3T ARX LTD Stealth stem is a perfect match for any 3T handlebars, but they've also made a nod to the practical by making it perfectly compatible with other manufacturers' bars. This is possible because particular attention has been paid to the design of the clamp. Recognizing that modern steerer tubes and handlebars are often made from delicate composite materials, the ARX clamp interface is specifically intended to clamp the handlebar and steerer securely for even the most rugged, Roubaix-like conditions, but gently enough so to ensure that none of the clamped material is compromised. How secure-but-gentle is it' So much so that it's passed the rigorous CEN certification standards test. 3T designs their products from the inside out rather than the outside in. That means that they make use of the natural characteristics of the material in their designs. Composite materials have a grain, like wood, so they're stronger in one plane than another. The key to building strong, light structures using composite material is to tailor the grain of the fibers to line up along the load path. That's why the ARX LTD Stealth stem sports that impossibly sexy unidirectional carbon look rather than a more typical woven appearance.

3T ARX LTD Stem 3T ARX LTD Stem
The ARX LTD Stem is the only stem in 3T's road line made from carbon fiber. While we're not sure why the Team stem didn't get the same treatment, the end result is that the ARX LTD drops an additional 7g of claimed weight compared to the closest alloy competitor in the Italian manufacturer's component armada. The LTD model's carbon construction also means that it's the stiffest stem in 3T's line, so you'll be that much more efficient when you're hammering out of the saddle and every watt lost to a flexing front end is one less you have to cover moves or launch your own attack. Compared to the improved power transfer, the stem's minimal weight savings are, well, minimal; however, when you've already trimmed the maximum grams from your frame, wheels, and drivetrain, dropping minimal weight in the cockpit may be what pushes your non-UCI-legal ride under the coveted 14lb mark. If your quest to drop weight has also led you to a carbon handlebar, then rest assured that the wide spacing of the ARX LTD's faceplate clamp splays the bolts out nice and wide. This diffuses the clamping force across a wider area so that less torque is needed for a secure fit and the torque you do wrench into the titanium bolts isn't concentrated on a narrow spot on the bar. The light texturing inside the clamping area also helps to achieve a firm fit with less torque, and it reduces the risk of carbon-on-carbon creaks and pops when you're using carbon bars.

3T DiffLock LTD Seatpost - 0 Offset 3T DiffLock LTD Seatpost - 0 Offset
By replacing the heavier alloy head found on the lower-tier models in its family, 3T slims the DiffLock LTD Seatpost with 0 Offset down by a claimed 5 to 35g, depending on which model you're comparing it to. While calling aluminum heavy and celebrating such apparently trivial weight losses may seem a bit hyperbolic, the DiffLock LTD Seatpost represents one of the final, incremental upgrades toward lighter machine that an XC or enduro racer can take. One feature that the LTD shares with its heavier cousins is 3T's DiffLock adjustment system. DiffLock involves a series of interlocking splines that let you precisely dial your saddle angle in half-degree increments for a position as customizable as the seatpost is lightweight. It also requires minimal torque force, so your saddle is easy to adjust with a classic multi-tool. Since sliding it fore and aft won't alter the saddle angle, you can use the DiffLock's full range without worrying that adjustments will affect your preferred setup.

A seatpost is a pretty utilitarian component, but it still has to do its job well without creating issues. 3T's DiffLock Pro 0 Offset Seatpost gets it done with a tough aluminum alloy construction, zero-offset design, and 3T's unique DiffLock clamping mechanism. DiffLock's interlocking splines hold your saddle rails precisely to within half a degree for perfect alignment, and require minimum torquing force, so your saddle is easy to adjust, even mid-ride. Sliding it fore and aft won't alter the saddle angle, either, so you can utilize the DiffLock's full range without worrying that adjustments will affect your riding.

3T Ionic 25 LTD Seatpost 3T Ionic 25 LTD Seatpost
The 3T Ionic 25 LTD seatpost combines 3T's top-notch high modulus carbon fiber with a 25mm offset for light weight, vibration absorption, and a neutral seat position. Constructed from alloy and carbon, this Ionic 25 LTD features 3T's high modulus carbon for the seatpost itself. It is designed using 3T's Clean Sheet design, which means that the way it is formed makes optimal use of the carbon weave sheets and their individualized properties. High modulus carbon fiber has a higher strength to weight ratio than standard carbon, yet it still functions to dampen vibration from rough roads. Placed on top of the carbon post is 3T's proprietary Difflock seat clamp. Unlike most clamps that require extreme flexibility and a creative technique to loosen two bolts and properly adjust the saddle, the Difflock features a single bolt. The saddle is easily adjustable for both angle and fore-aft position with the turn of a single hex bolt.

3T Stylus 0 LTD Seatpost 3T Stylus 0 LTD Seatpost
The zero setback of 3T's Stylus 0 LTD Seatpost may lack the compliant comfort of the 25mm setback version, but its uncompromising position moves your hips up -- much closer to centered on the bottom bracket. This means you can harness your engine's power more efficiently while sitting in the saddle's more comfortable cradle rather than up on the far less forgiving nose. Some cyclists may prefer to maximize comfort and stability with a setback post, but if pure power is your game, then zero setback is the only option. Both the post and the clamping plate are monocoque, high-modulus carbon fiber, which puts weight loss above all else -- including cost -- in order to maximize on the watts you're pouring into the road. All told, its claimed weight of 150g for a 31. 6 x 280mm model brings the Stylus 0 LTD in at just 75% of the Stylus Team's weight, making it the lightest model in 3T's line. The two carbon pieces are joined with the new Stylus clamping system, which secures the saddle with two bolts situated just inside of either saddle rail. This design more effectively distributes load pressure, which is a must for clamping carbon to carbon -- especially if you're clamping carbon rails. Despite its all-comers ease of use, we do recommend using a torque wrench tuned at or below the max suggested torque of 10Nm while tightening the Stylus 0 LTD's twin bolts. This tolerance is relatively high for any cockpit component, and we're especially impressed given that -- unlike the carbon post and alloy clamp of the Team model or the Pro model's all alloy construction -- the LTD pits carbon against carbon. That high tolerance speaks volumes about not only 3T's carbon fiber expertise but the confidence the Italian company has in the durability of its high-modulus carbon fiber, which is unique to the LTD model.

The sleek design provides a solid, lightweight base for mounting your saddle, and it's built with the attention to minute details that 3T is known for. The Stylus 0 Pro Seatpost's shaft is constructed from a lightweight and durable shot-peened aluminum. Long a staple material choice among professional cyclists for its durability, aluminum also provides low weight and smooth riding characteristics. Atop the post, 3T adds its refined 2-bolt alloy head. This new finned clamping interface is where the post really shines, as 3T spent considerable time getting both the look and functionality just right. The alloy head features a rearward 'swoosh' that was modeled after the classic single-bolt designs of the good old days, keeping that traditional aesthetic alive. The two clamping bolts were placed on either side of the saddle-support cradle, resulting in a secure, stable clamping interface that's easy to adjust. The zero setback model accommodates all the puncheurs who prefer an aggressive positioning in favor of being set back, allowing them to easily get forward on the saddle and down in an aerodynamic position.

3T Vola Pro Alloy Aerobars 3T Vola Pro Alloy Aerobars
An award-winning bar, the new 3T Vola Pro Alloy Aerobar is ideal for triathletes and time-trialists who don't feel the need for a full carbon bar, at three times the price. Durability, adjustability, and comfort set this bar apart from the crowd. For added strength and durability, the Vola was built from hydroformed aluminum. Hydroforming is a process whereby high pressure fluid pushes room-temperature materials into a mold. This process allows for complex shapes as well as an increased stiffness to weight ratio that is otherwise not achievable with a more standard die-cut process. It creates a unibody design that allows the bullhorns to be shaped to accommodate your hands comfortably. The bars themselves are 42cm wide. They include alloy extensions that have been shaped to clear the wrists. To securely and comfortably support your forearms, the neoprene elbow pads sit atop composite carbon fiber cradles. The bars are adjustable in several directions to customize your fit. The cradle width moves from 226 to 292mm. The reach of the extensions is adjustable from 20-70mm and the rise features 10, 10, and 30mm spacers to maximize out at 87mm in height. The 3T Vola Pro Alloy Aerobars work with a 31. 8mm stem.

Campagnolo Athena Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes Campagnolo Athena Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes
As cyclists, we tend to make considerable sacrifices in pursuit of lower weight, but trading safety for weight just seems boneheaded to us. That's why we're pleased that Campagnolo is now offering dual pivot calipers in the front and rear on the Athena Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes. They do gain a few grams over a dual/single set, but the extra stopping power may mean the difference between a close call and a bad end to a ride. Dual-pivot brakes have a greater lever length on both sides, so they produce more power on the wheel's braking track. Previous setups have used dual-pivot up front but a single-pivot model in the back. Two dual-pivot brakes means that you've got maximum stopping power for maximum safety. This is further complemented by the forged skeleton design, which was and remains focused on stopping power, ease of use, and lightness. Its strength is due to the fact that no part of its body is machined. The Athena brakes don't have the orbital adjustment of the Chorus, Record, and Super Record branded brakes, and they weigh a claimed 19 grams more than the heaviest of those three. Other than that, they enjoy all of the functionality of Campy's other brakes, including the special compound brake pads and the safety tab that keeps them in place. The tab is in the back half of the shoe and is released with a little leverage from a small, common screwdriver.

Campagnolo Carbon Brake Pad - 2-Pack Campagnolo Carbon Brake Pad - 2-Pack
Though we all have our own partisan affiliations when it comes to components, it's hard to argue against the supremacy of Campagnolo wheels. The bearings, the iconic branding, the reliability of Italian-built carbon--virtually every wheel wish list reserves a top-three spot for carbon hoops from Vicenza. If you're among the fortunate few to own a pair, then you owe it to yourself to protect them with Campagnolo's Carbon Brake Pad Set. The pads are made with a blend of compounds designed to interact with Campagnolo's brake tracks, contributing to more confident stopping power on all of the Italian brand's carbon rims but having even greater effect when paired with the 3Diamant brake track found on the latest generation of Bora 35 and 50 wheelsets. Campagnolo claims that these gains manifest in both dry and wet conditions. That's great on paper, but what really matters is what it does on the road. To prove this point, we present exhibit 16--as in, stage 16 of the 2014 Giro. Nairito staged a pink-jersey coup on this stage with a daredevil descent of the Stelvio in snowy, wet conditions so severe that they caused confusion about stage neutralization among the other teams. When he made his move, the diminutive Colombian had the confidence of Bora 35s and Campy's Carbon Brake Pads underneath him, ensuring he'd have responsive braking so he could carry speed into corners and consolidate his lead as much as possible on the descent. If you're on Campy wheels, running ho-hum generics or--worse--alloy-specific pads is the equivalent of assembling all of the internal ingredients for a proper ruben and then sandwiching it between sourdough--that is, if using sourdough instead of marbled rye entailed a risk of catastrophic wheel failure.

Campagnolo H11 AFS Rotor Campagnolo H11 AFS Rotor
Pivotal in the brute stopping force of Campagnolo's Ergopower H11 Disc Brakes, the H11 AFS Rotor maintains thermal resistance during lengthy descents and high-octane scenarios where disc brakes are pushed to the absolute limit. The inner-aluminum spider helps with heat dissipation, meaning you'll feel confident braking on extended descents where other rotors get overly hot and lose braking power. Backing Campy's claims of superior braking, the H11 Rotor stops reliably to 800 watts without suffering damage, such as melted alloy and reduced rotor thickness. This is especially impressive when you realize one of the major competitors suffered damage at only 650 watts of force, showcasing the H11's ability to effectively disperse heat without warping or bending. Seeing the front takes the brunt of stopping force, the front rotor is only available in a 160-millimeter version, whereas you can choose between a 140 and 160-millimeter rear. Because disc brakes are inherently more dangerous in high-speed crashes, Campy designed the H11 Rotor with a smooth perimeter that reduces the chance of slicing open your body in the event of a nasty crash. To ensure safety, Campy employed a Swiss lab to simulate the H11 Rotor versus the competition when pushing against a skin-like model with high force. Results showed the competitor's wavy rotors sliced through the simulated tissue, whereas the H11 didn't leave a cut inflicted upon the model. Although still controversial in professional racing, disc brakes can be implemented in a safe fashion, with Campagnolo leading the charge in developing smooth rotors that lessen the chance of crash-induced cuts and nasty incisions.

Campagnolo Record 11 Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes Campagnolo Record 11 Skeleton Dual-Pivot Brakes
If we've ever had any complaint with Campagnolo's Record 11 Skeleton Brakes, it's that they were only dual-pivot in the front. There is a slight trade-off for weight, and some will claim that the extra stopping power of a dual-pivot rear brake is unnecessary, but the extra stopping power of two dual-pivot brakes is something that, if you ever need it, you'll definitely be glad to have.

Its strength is due to the fact that nothing on this brake is machined. The ball-bearing pivots and snappy spring give them a nice feel from the lever, and the lightness is a result of the skeleton design as well as a full complement of titanium bolts, nuts, and hardware. The Campagnolo Super Record 11 Skeleton Dual Pivot Brakes have a reach of 40-50mm.

Cane Creek 40-Series Headset Cane Creek 40-Series Headset
With Cane Creek's 40-Series Headset, you don't have to worry that spending less will equate to getting less performance. It's the working class headset that offers serious durability and smooth performance, rivaling their 110-Series Headset. Part of the money you save if due to the fact that they sell it only in Black, though Cane Creek makes sure that it gets a good polished finish before it sees the ano tank. Where the 110 headset has cups machined from 7075 T6 aluminum, this 40-Series Headset is crafted from 6061 T6 alloy. The functional difference is one of a few grams, with the higher tech alloy of the 110 headset allowing a lighter overall part. This 40-Series Headset spins on Cane Creek's black oxide bearings. The races and balls start out as 52100 steel and are then given an acid bath to make them more corrosion resistant, while still being porous enough to retain grease. They are angular contact bearings (ACB), which resist both axial and radial loads equally well. The cartridges are sealed with what Cane Creek likes to call a Split Lip Seal, which has two contact seals per side to better keep out contaminants and hold in grease. To augment the seals on the cartridge bearings, Cane Creek adds face seals to the crown race and top assembly. So what if the bearings aren't stainless -- grease kept in and muddy goop kept out keeps 'em running like new for a long time. In the event that you might wreck the bearings through normal use or abuse, you should know that all the internal parts in this 40-Series Headset are compatible with their top-of-the-line 110-Series Headset. So you could always upgrade to the 110 headset's stainless steel bearings. The Clip-Seal in the upper assembly holds all the parts together, including the compression ring. This makes assembly a cinch, since there are no loose parts to misplace or install backwards. The Cane Creek 40-Series Headset is polished and anodized Black. Cane Creek adds laser etched graphics including their Skink lo...

Cane Creek Thudbuster ST Seatpost Cane Creek Thudbuster ST Seatpost
Gravel bikes are fast becoming favorite toys in the Competitive office, and--as with our pure road and off-road bikes--we like to ride them fast. That means that we spend a lot of time hovering over the saddle in order to keep pedaling through rougher sections of poorly graded b-roads, but Cane Creek's Thudbuster ST Seatpost addresses those things that go bump on the bike. The Thudbuster's short travel isn't noticeable while spinning on smooth tarmac, but when the going gets gravelly its 1. 3in of four-bar travel kick in to keep rough terrain from kicking back. It effectively smooths the ride so you can stay planted in the saddle while pedaling across gravel, and the added cushion effectively expands the list of terrain types that a gravel bike can tackle.

Cane Creek ZS49/EC49 AngleSet Tapered Headset Kit Cane Creek ZS49/EC49 AngleSet Tapered Headset Kit
For those who obsess about steering feel and how it affects the ride experience, there is Angleset. Cane Creek created it so that you could change your effective head tube angle in order to get exactly what you want in terms of how your bike feels and performs under certain trail conditions. This AngleSet 1. 5" Tapered Headset Kit - ZS49/EC49 is designed to fit bike frames with a straight 1. 5" headtube -- 49mm ID on top and bottom. The external lower cup offers room for the oversize crown race of a 1. 5" tapered fork as well. How does it work' It's simple really. The upper cup on Cane Creek's ZS49/EC49 Angleset Headset is available in three versions (included) -- . 5, 1. 0, and 1. 5. They have offset bearing bores (relative to the press-fit skirt) and can be installed forwards or backwards, yielding a total available angle range of 3 based from the centerline of the headtube. This means that if you're bike has a head tube angle of 68 this headset will allow you to make angular changes down to 66. 5 or up to 69. 5 or between those marks, depending on which of the three cups you install. Both upper and lower bearings are housed in gimbals that self-adjust for the angular correction so that your headset gets a perfect, clunk-free fit when you set it up. The benefit of the Angleset is that you can customize the steering feel of your bike exactly to your liking. Like their top-of-the-line 110 series headsets, the Angleset cups and gimbal parts are machine from 7075-T6 aluminum. They use Cane Creek's black oxide bearings.

Challenge Strada Tubular Tire Challenge Strada Tubular Tire
There's no denying that experiencing a great tubular tire is a wonderful experience. You won't believe that your bike could be so smooth and fast. So if you're going to make the switch to tubulars, do yourself a favor and wrap some Challenge Strada Tubular Tires around your hoops, because Challenge simply does it right. For the casing of the Strada, Challenge used its handmade, highly puncture-resistant, and lightweight SuperPoly material. With its 300 threads per inch (TPI), you receive a remarkably supple ride that you'll feel the first time out. On top of the casing, Challenge added a belt of corespun polyester, made by twisting fibers around a central filament core, creating one yarn from multiple strands. As a result, the material is between 40 and 50% stronger than typically spun materials, while retaining a similar, if not lower, overall weight. This layer is what Challenge calls its PPS (Puncture Protection System), and it's specifically made from the tightly woven polyester material to preserve the casing's supple feel. The 25mm-wide profile was then wrapped with the popular Paris Roubaix herringbone tread pattern, a design that continues to be one of Challenge's most versatile for a variety of road surfaces. This low-profile pattern perfectly blends speed and grip. The tread was applied using Challenge's proven hand-glued methods, which involves mounting and then inflating the casing on a wheel. Only then does Challenge carefully glue on the tread layer. As a result, the tread isn't put under tension when you inflate the tire on your wheel, and that lack of tension leads to lower rolling-resistance, added grip, and increased comfort. The Challenge Strada Tubular Tire weighs approximately 285 grams each, comes in the colors Black/black and Black/tan, and in the 700c x 25mm size.

Building on a reputation for bombproof reliability, the Inset 2 Headset retains Chris King's storied quality and precision with a new design to meet the needs of frames that use a semi-integrated headset. The main difference between the Inset 2 and the well-known NoThreadset is that the Inset 2's bearings sit inside the head tube instead of being housed in cups on either side of it. The big bonus of the Inset 2 is that all those riders with frames requiring a semi-integrated headset can now get in on the Chris King train of awesomeness. The Inset 2 Headset also utilizes Chris King's new GripLock compression ring assembly in its top bearing for a safe and secure headset fit. The Inset 2 is compatible with tapered fork steerer tubes and can be adapted to pair with straight 1 1/8-inch steerer tubes by using a Devo baseplate (sold separately).

Chris King InSet 3 Tapered Headset with Griplock Chris King InSet 3 Tapered Headset with Griplock
Chris King is a smart guy. Firstly, he invented the sealed bearing headset that would become the industry standard for excellence. Secondly, he listened to the industry when it shouted out loud that bearings could be inside the head tube if one wanted them there. This Chris King InSet 3 Tapered Headset w/ GripLock is evidence that even when you don't want to do something, you can still do it with style and grace when you need to. This isn't a full InSet headset -- it's what Chris King calls a "Mixed Tapered" headset. It has a 1-1/8" InSet (semi-integrated) upper cup and an external (traditional) 1. 5" lower cup. The 1. 5" lower bearing assembly is plenty strong and extremely durable -- it's not going to get notchy or disintegrate any time soon. The external lower is also good because if you have a favorite fork that happens to have a 1-1/8" steerer you can still install it, albeit with a reducer base plate. Chris King's GripLock upper bearing cap uses a new compression design. This assembly replaces the older style, one-piece bearing cap that contained the O-ring. Instead, GripLock uses a split compression ring to center the steerer tube in the upper bearing, and when you preload the assembly, the split ring provides additional surface area against the steerer for a more secure and safer interface, especially on carbon fiber steerer tubes. The upper bearing assembly is super clean-looking because of its low profile. It also allows the frame designers the ability to increase the headtube length without raising the handlebar height. A longer headtube allows for greater steerer support and more surface area for the top and down tubes, both things that make the bike stronger as a whole. The Chris King InSet 3 Tapered HeadSet comes with King's regular 10-year warranty. It's available in Black, Navy, Red, and Silver. It fits frames with tapered 1-1/8 to 1. 5" (44 to 49mm ID) head tubes and forks that have a tapered 1-1/8 to 1. 5" steerer. It can be used with straight 1...

Chris King Inset 5 Headset Chris King Inset 5 Headset
If you've got a bike frame with a 49mm ID head tube, it will accept a fork with a 1. 5" steerer tube. But it also leaves you plenty of opportunity for use with other steerer tube dimensions as long as you use the right headset. This Chris King InSet Model 5 Headset will allow you to mate a fork with a 1-1/8 to 1. 5" tapered steerer to your bike. And since it uses King's low-stack InSet top cup, you can get your stem a bit lower if you like (a good thing for smaller riders on long travel bikes). This Model 5 Headset benefits from Chris King's GripLock upper bearing cap. This assembly replaces the older style, one-piece bearing cap that contained the O-ring. Instead, GripLock uses a split ring to center the steerer tube in the upper bearing, and when you preload the assembly, the split ring provides additional surface area against the steerer for a more secure and safer interface, especially on carbon fiber steerer tubes. We'd consider this to be a mixed headset because the upper bearing cup contains the bearing within the head tube. In contrast, the lower bearing cup houses the bearing outside of the head tube. We're big fans of tapered steerer tubes because of the perfect balance between light weight and steering stiffness. The traditional lower cup allows the larger 1. 5" bottom bearing, giving you precise steering and a bulletproof system, not to mention that the fork can be built with a stronger, stiffer crown. The Chris King InSet Model 5 Headset is available in eight polished-to-perfection anodized colors -- Black, Navy, Red, and Silver. The base plate can be exchanged for one that fits 1-1/8" straight steerers (sold separately).

Easton EC90 Setback Seatpost Easton EC90 Setback Seatpost
Light isn't good enough anymore. While the Easton EC90 Setback Seatpost is certainly one of the lightest posts on the market, it's also designed to last. To be direct, it's designed to be both tough and light. Increasing the toughness doesn't begin with overbuilding it but instead, recognizing the enemy of longevity -- impatient bike mechanics (you or your local shop rat). It happens when someone slams a seatpost clamp shut rather than taking the time to back off the fine-adjust nut on the opposite side of the clamp lever. When you overzealously clamp a carbon seatpost, you risk overloading the "pinch" zone at the back of the post, where the seat tube is cut to allow it to flex and clamp the seatpost. Too much clamp force narrows the focus of the clamp on this one area. To avoid any possibility of mashing your EC90 Carbon Seatpost, Easton came up with what it calls Relief Area Design, RAD for short, and you'll see it deployed on the brand's seatposts as well as steerer tubes on their forks. RAD works by simply eliminating material at the zone where that imbalanced force would normally pinch (this is the flat edge you see on the back of the seatpost). This helps to spread the clamping load more broadly across the circumference of the tube. Easton's EC90 carbon is of course their top grade, and the material is even used on both the upper and lower plates of the clamp assembly where it attaches to the seat rails. While "full carbon" posts are increasingly common, Easton uses a very stable, two-bolt clamp design that echos one of the most venerable posts ever made, the Thomson. Both rely on long clamp zones and highly adjustable through-bolts. The Easton EC90 Setback Seatpost has a uni-directional Matte Carbon finish. It is 350mm in length and comes in 27. 2, 30. 9, and 31. 6mm diameters.

Easton EC90 Zero Offset Seatpost Easton EC90 Zero Offset Seatpost
With composite technology continually being pushed to the limits, we're always on the verge of the next component boasting a 'lighter and more aerodynamic' design than was previously thought possible. And while we're all for these attributes that seemingly dominate our current world of cycling, we're equally concerned with the durability of these featherweight products. This couldn't be more true for cockpit componentry, and it seems that Easton is right on track with this way of thinking. With its new EC90 Zero Offset Seatpost, Easton hit the drawing board with a focus on low weight and durability. In fact, it's the lightest post in Easton's lineup (200g in a 31. 6mm), but with a few exclusive technological innovations, it's also one of the strongest due. Easton built the EC90 carbon post with both its Relief-Area Design (RAD) and TaperWall technology. TaperWall is a manufacturing technique that applies more carbon to the wall surfaces of the post, where stiffness is paramount. Meanwhile, less material is applied to areas requiring more compliance. For the EC90, this means that you get a thinner aft portion of the post, which creates a more compliant, comfortable ride quality. However, the thicker sides provide an enhanced level of rigidity and a strong resistance to torsional flex. The RAD technology works directly with the TaperWall, essentially flattening the rear section of the post. In addition to this eliminating unnecessary weight, RAD prevents the gouging and scoring that often occurs on round posts from the binder bolt/clamp assembly. In addition to the post itself, Easton's top grade EC90 carbon material is also used on both the upper and lower halves of the clamp assembly. This all-carbon system securely encloses your saddle's rails using a hidden two-bolt design. Not only are fine-tune adjustments made easy, but you also retain a clean aesthetic and solid aerodynamics with the two 4mm clamping bolts staying tucked away and out of view. The Ea...

The SRX3 Saddle occupies the entry-level space in that line, featuring the same shape as its pricier siblings paired with a mix of more affordable materials. If you're looking to branch into a different saddle shape for your road bike or are trying to outfit a 'cross bike with a saddle designed to accommodate the variety of positions you'll occupy throughout a race, the SRX3 is a practical investment. The SRX3 is constructed with a blend of common materials that include CroMo steel rails and a fiberglass composite shell, but the AirCell padding atop the saddle is less common. Proprietary to Ergon, AirCell features layers of tiny air pockets that absorb harsh road vibrations and provide support whether you're mashing on grass or spinning along your favorite road loop. Additional support comes in the form of the slight upturn at the rear of the SRX3, included to make it easier for riders to push back into the saddle and send an added burst of power to the pedals while climbing or grinding through a sandpit. The saddle anticipates quick dismounts at barriers and ahead of run-ups, and its overall flat topography was designed to make the process as smooth as possible.

Fabric Cell Elite Saddle Fabric Cell Elite Saddle
We'll say it: Fabric's Cell Elite Saddle doesn't look much like most of the saddles on Competitive Cyclist. It it gel' Is it squishy' Both were questions we had when we first took a look at it, and we can answer that yes, it is somewhat squishy, but no, it's not made of gel. We can also say that like everything newcomer Fabric has given us thus far, the Cell Elite delivers striking modern aesthetics and simple functionality that belies its accessible price. Grab one now if your commuter saddle isn't cutting it and see what we're so excited about. Fabric built the Cell Elite for commuters, correctly assuming that their needs are different than those of recreational and competitive cyclists. Commuters generally occupy a more upright position, so Fabric shaped the Cell Elite to a more forgiving 155mm width to accommodate that distinction. Cell cushioning--that squishy material that so surprises cyclists long accustomed to rigid race shelves--uses air spring technology to add support and relief without absorbing every last bit of energy you're trying to put in the pedals. Fabric borrowed the tech from the running industry, so if you pound pavement when you're not on your bike, you'll understand the springy feeling Fabric hopes to achieve in the Cell Elite. Solid steel rails, a durable nylon shell, and a waterproof rubber cover round out this worthwhile investment in your commuting setup.

Fabric Line Race Saddle Fabric Line Race Saddle
A relatively new player in the saddle game, UK-based Fabric has been seriously impressing us with its budget-minded saddles as of late. Built with clean lines and efficient materials, the saddles don't look or feel like the cheaper option; instead, they're well-executed, practical designs. Each of the five saddle families the company makes is constructed with a different purpose in mind, with the Line saddles entrusted with the goal of improving long-ride comfort. Slim and lithe, the Line Race Saddle comes with a pressure relief channel along its entire 270mm body that aims to reduce numbness and improve circulation on long days. You don't have to exclusively spend more than six hours in the saddle for every ride to experience the effects of poor bloodflow and inefficient weight distribution out on the roads. Whether you ride an hour a week or are logging as many miles as you can fit in, the Line Race's blend of subtle foam cushioning atop a nylon base helps to limit road chatter and reduce fatigue for however long you're outside. Calling the Line Race's nylon base "flexible" may give the wrong impression, but it's a relative comparison we're aiming to make. Next to some of the masochistic carbon race shelves we've seen, the Line Race is undeniably flexible, but it doesn't yield so much to your body movements as to inhibit your efficiency or power transfer. The saddle itself sits atop hollow titanium alloy rails, which lend impressive strength and the promise of durability to the setup without adding much weight, and a waterproof microfiber cover wraps around the entire saddle. Soft and supple, the cover protects the saddle's internals from the elements while providing a smooth interface between itself and your bib shorts.

Fabric Scoop Pro Saddle Fabric Scoop Pro Saddle
The Fabric Scoop Pro saddle is simple. It's lightweight and it's tough. The Scoop comes in four varieties: Elite, Race, Pro, and Ultimate. The Scoop Pro starts with carbon fiber rails and a nylon base. Fabric says its Scoop Saddle is "designed for everyone," and that's exactly what it is. Like many of today's bicycle saddles, the Scoop is designed to work with road, mountain, or cyclocross bikes. Unlike many of today's saddles, however, the Scoop gives you options for fit, feel, and style. You can choose between two different base materials for the Scoop saddle: nylon or carbon fiber. The Scoop Pro comes with a flexible nylon base. This base is both lightweight and comfortable. The Scoop also offers three different rail material options. The Pro model comes with Fabric's 9mm oval carbon fiber rails, which are both the lightest and stiffest in the line. The Scoop saddle comes in three different shapes, which vary in curvature from tip to tail. The three shapes are Flat, Shallow, and Radius. Which saddle you choose depends on which saddle is most comfortable for your body type. All of Fabric's Scoop saddles feature dense polyurethane foam for cushioning and a waterproof microfiber shell fabric, which is available in either white or black.

Fabric Scoop Race Saddle Fabric Scoop Race Saddle
Replacing your stock saddle certainly can mean investing a significant amount of money, but it doesn't have to. We commend brands like UK-based Fabric for crafting saddles out of affordable materials that are accessible to a range of self-sponsored cyclists. The brand's Scoop line fits this description aptly, and Fabric fittingly makes it in three different shapes to accommodate different riding styles. If you're racing, the Scoop Flat has the aggressive profile you're looking for to pair with your slammed frame geometry. If being in an "aero" position no longer holds much appeal for you, the Scoop Shallow encourages a more natural body position in the saddle as you duck into your drops and onto your hoods over the course of a ride. And if you're commuting and favor comfort and practicality over speed, the Scoop Radius' upright orientation is ideal. While each saddle's shaping varies significantly, Fabric keeps construction the same throughout, using a nylon base engineered to flex so that you don't feel every pebble or piece of road grit you ride over. The forgiving nylon sits atop hollow titanium-alloy rails, which manage to be both durable and light without nudging the saddle's price to extreme heights. Though Fabric favors minimal designs for the Flat and the Shallow models, both come with the same foam cushioning as their more forgiving sibling, the Radius. The padding adds some long-ride comfort and helps to absorb road noise, but Fabric demonstrates restraint when using it to make sure you won't feel as though you're perched atop a pillow. Finally, a loyal waterproof microfiber cover protects the internals from the often cruel elements, equipping the Scoop to become a fixture on your frame for the rides, races, and commutes to come.

Fabric Tri Race Saddle Fabric Tri Race Saddle
Clean, modern aesthetics and refreshingly affordable prices: UK-based newcomer Fabric hasn't taken long to attract well-deserved attention from the glossies for its saddles' functionality, and we're thrilled to see the brand getting its due. For 2017, it expanded its line of tri-specific saddles to include three different rail materials to accommodate everyone from novice triathletes to dedicated semi-pros. The Tri Race Saddle caters to those somewhere in the middle of the above categories. It's built on durable, lightweight titanium rails, features Fabric's signature waterproof microfiber cover, and comes shaped to complement tri and TT bike geometry. Aside from rail material, and subsequently weight, nothing separates each of the saddles in Fabric's Tri line. A short, wide shape better supports your nether regions in the flatter, stretched-out body position in which tri and TT bikes situate riders, and Fabric thoughtfully includes features like a bike hanger and rear bottle mount to help streamline transition area setups and race day hydration. The Race comes with a nylon base that allows for comfort-enhancing flex, to which Fabric fuses foam padding and a microfiber cover, creating an extremely light saddle that feels like one streamlined piece.

FSA K-Force Light Stem FSA K-Force Light Stem
For some components, 'lightweight' and 'carbon' can be dirty words. In the early 2000's weight-weenie craze, the peloton suffered under the malleable malfeasance of poorly designed, lightweight cockpits. Well, those days are finally past us, in part, because of pristine designs like the FSA K-Force Light Stem having taught the cycling world a very important lesson--innovate or don't bother. The K-Force Light Stem does just that by using a total carbon and titanium construction that offers up rigidity, style, and massive weight savings. FSA's K-Force Light Stem features a 100% monocoque carbon fiber body construction. This design achieves an equilibrium between weight-savings and ride quality without sacrificing on either polarity. The K-Force Light provides a stiff and direct platform to the bars, while weighing in around an astoundingly low 150g. And while most weight-shaving stems feel more malleable than rigid, the K-Force's design avoids the wet-noodle-zeitgeist by eliminating any steel or alloy from the stem. You heard that right. The K-Force Light uses only titanium hardware to secure to the steer tube and to attach the carbon faceplate. The FSA K-Force Light Stem is available in four sizes from 100 to 130mm. Please note that this stem is only compatible with 1-1/8in steer tubes and 31. 8mm clamp diameter bars.

FSA's SL-K Stem was constructed to provide rigid support for the handlebars, feeling similar in both weight and stiffness to carbon and titanium with a precise, CNC-machined aluminum construction. To guarantee rigidity, FSA 3D-forged the aluminum stem body. This process starts with one ingot of aluminum that is bored out and shaped internally. This improves the aluminum's grain structure and eliminates the use of welds for drastically reduced weight. The benefits to you are a heightened stiffness, with weight comparable to carbon fiber, at a considerably lower cost. To maintain the flow of weight savings, the SL-K uses a carbon fiber face plate with chrome-moly hardware. The SL-K features a 40mm fork-clamp stack height with a 6 degree rise. FSA has included clamp-to-clamp model graphics that run inverse of each other to keep the aesthetic unchanged whether you slam the stem or run positive rise. It is only compatible with 1-1/8in steerer tubes and 31. 8mm clamp diameter handlebars.

Garmin Vector 2 Power Meter Pedals Garmin Vector 2 Power Meter Pedals
They say good things come to those who wait, and in the case of the Garmin Vector 2 Power Meter Pedals, it's true. If you're looking to get more out of your training than just seeing where you stack up against competitors on apps, it's probably time to make the jump to a power meter, and after a few new upgrades for this year, now's a great time to choose the Vector pedals.One of the major highlights of the Vector 2 as a system is its ability to measure power coming through each leg independently. Some systems take one leg and double it to reach an overall power output, but most people have a dominant leg, and the Vector 2 will force you to confront a weaker side that could be slowing you down. Garmin's over-achieving design won't let you get away with much during a ride: it knows exactly how much time you spend in and out of the saddle, where you drive power through to the pedals, as well as which part of your pedal stroke is the most powerful, and it will tell you all of that using its interactive Garmin Connect platform, which stores all of your ride data and helps you make sense of the numbers. As the Vector 2 is a pedal-mounted system, you don't have to dread swapping it from your road bike to your mountain rig on a regular basis. In fact, sharing it amongst your quiver of bikes is encouraged. The whole system takes just a few minutes to install, so you can make a quick change before a ride without condemning yourself to an afternoon in the garage. Use the Vector 2 with either Look Keo or Garmin Vector 3-bolt cleats, and know quickly when the device has synced and is ready to go using the new LED indicator light.

Garmin Vector 2S Power Meter Pedals Garmin Vector 2S Power Meter Pedals
The Garmin Vector 2S Power Meter Pedals bring some new features to the table and provide powerful data tracking in an affordable, easy to install, and bike interchangeable format. With the Vector 2S, Garmin throws away the old washers found on the Vector S pedal pods and opted for a new, more user-friendly design that clamps over the pedal spindle. The Vector 2S pods also feature a new flashing LED system to provide information on pairing status and let you know when the battery is getting low. The Vector 2S still measures watts with a pod attached to the left pedal spindle, capturing power information as it transfers from the pedal into the crank arm. The sensor monitors tiny changes in the pedal spindle curve as force is applied to the pedal, and the data is transferred wirelessly via ANT+ technology to the head unit. You can see your power during rides and also download the data for analysis once you get home. The Vector 2S also has the option to upgrade and convert to a dual-sensing system with the Garmin Vector 2S Upgrade Pedal for additional data features such as left/right balance and pedal efficiency dynamics. The pedal itself has a lightweight composite body with a stainless steel wear plate to increase durability and provide a wide platform, reducing the chances of pressure points distracting from your ride. The adjustable tension binding also lets you customize the force required to twist the cleat out of the pedal and is compatible with Garmin Vector and Look Keo three-bolt cleats. The whole system runs on a standard 2032 coin cell battery located in the pedal pod for a claimed 175 hours of ride time per battery. When time's up, the batteries are easily replaceable with a quick trip to the grocery store and a twist of the battery cap. The Garmin Vector 2S Power Meter Pedals are available with standard pedal pods to fit crank arms 12mm to 15mm thick and up to 44mm wide or large pedal pods to fit crank arms 15mm to 18mm thick and up to 44mm wide.

With readings from both pedals, the upgraded Vector 2S system is able to provide data on left/right power balance as well as dynamics that include assessment of where you generate power in each pedal stroke, where you apply force on the pedal, and how much time you spend sitting and standing while riding. This lets you analyze and fine tune your pedal stroke to address any imbalances for a potentially smoother, more powerful ride. As with the sensor-less pedal it replaces, the 2S Upgrade Pedal has a lightweight composite body with a stainless steel wear plate to increase durability and provide a wide platform for the cleat, reducing the chances of uncomfortable pressure points. The adjustable tension binding lets you customize the force required to twist the cleat out of the pedal, and the engagement system is compatible with the included Garmin Vector cleats and the ubiquitous Look Keo three-bolt cleats.

ISM PN 1.1 Saddle ISM PN 1.1 Saddle
The restrictions set by governing bodies on saddle placement has led to a cohort of time trialists and triathletes spending countless miles perched precariously and uncomfortably on the narrow tip of traditional road saddles, trying to eek the most power out of a flat time trial course. This position is fast, but may be putting unhealthy pressure on sensitive nerves and tissues. ISM addresses this issue with the ISM PN 1. 1 Saddle and its signature split fork, stocky-nosed design. The PN 1. 1 may look a bit alien next to a regular saddle, but it's built for comfort and function in a time trial position. Based on ISM's line-topping Attack saddle, the PN 1. 1 features a blunted nose and cutout split to provide a more supportive platform than traditional pointy-nosed saddles, even when you're scooted up on the rivet to squeeze out those few extra watts. This saddle provides a bit more padding than the Attack to counter the minimal chamois found in most triathlon-specifc shorts, and the unique split design reduces pressure on soft tissue and nerves to increase overall comfort and reduce numbness. The ISM PN 1. 1 features an extra narrow, 110mm rear width to provide riders of all types with a variety of positioning options out on the road. This profile allows you to scoot back on the saddle to tackle a climb, perch on the nose to power through a flat section, and change positions as needed without any worries related to thigh and hamstring clearance. The result is less chafing, less numbness, and more fun on every ride.

At first glance, this saddle looks a bit odd with its blunt nose and split legs at the front, but rest assured that it's designed with your comfort in mind. ISM categorizes the PR 2. 0 as a Performance Recreation saddle, meaning it'll be right at home in a local race or chauffeuring you to the next stop on that wine country century. It features a bit more padding than ISM's race models to give day-long comfort in the saddle for whatever ride the day brings. For those of you looking to test the waters in a local triathlon, the ISM PR 2. 0 Saddle has some added features to lower the bar of entry. The extra padding will counter the thinner chamois found in most triathlon-specific shorts to keep you comfy during the bike leg, and a rear transition hook makes it easier to get your bike situated on the transition area rack whether you're setting it up before a race or coming in to T2.

Pedal industry underdog iSSi has been attracting far more attention for its designs off the trails, but here at Competitive, we're equally excited about road options like the Carbon Road Pedal. While the ability to match the color with our frame is awfully enticing, iSSi's fresh approach and solid designs are what's truly responsible for winning us over. Minnesota-based iSSi crafts the entire body of the pedal out of carbon fiber, giving it lightness and rigidity befitting a pedal that will grace its fair share of weight-conscious frames. Anticipating the wear that pedals see through varied road conditions, iSSi coated the chromoly spindle with an ED treatment to boost its longevity and keep corrosion at bay, and it reinforced the cleat-pedal interface with a stainless steel plate. iSSi's innovative split-cleat design gives you the ability to choose between three different float options: 0, 4. 5, and 7 degrees. Since the pedals are easy to remove, this design allows you to swap them between bikes then adjust float based on your preference for a given discipline. As with its mountain pedals, the cartridge bearings are all brushed and completely sealed on the Carbon Road, and the pedal accommodates for spring tension adjustability to make sure standing out of the saddle to attack doesn't result in an accidental ejection.

With a narrower bottom than the original Keo design, the Keo 2 Max offers superb cornering clearance so you can dive into that last turn of a crit with total confidence. Creating a more durable pedal than the original version, Look placed a stainless steel wear plate at the center of the carbon body.

This reduces friction and decreases play. Stack height is a low 17. 3mm.

The chromoly spindle by no means makes the pedals heavyweights, though; with a claimed weight of just 110g per pedal, the Carbon CR enjoys a 100g reduction per pair compared to look models with a traditional, coiled steel spring. The secret is the Blade, a leaf spring that tensions the engagement mechanism without needing help from a lump of metal. Plus, it's carbon. And who needs an excuse to add more carbon parts to their bikes' The more traditional cyclists in the field might question the longevity of what is, essentially, just a bendy bit of carbon fiber. We did when first exposed to the design, too. But once we gave it the eyeball test, we were satisfied enough to throw everything we have into it. And by "eyeball test," we mean we saw the carbon Blade leaf spring in action with our own eyeballs beneath the likes of Sagan and Greipel. If those two powerhouses can't break the damned thing, than we don't stand a chance. While the carbon fiber blade is what creates the buzz, the rest is extremely tech-forward as well. The carbon fiber body is wider than the previous version, which was itself 17% wider than the original Keo. The platform increases from 62mm to 64mm, a move that bumps the surface area up to 700mm2. Despite that sprint-friendly platform, the cornering clearance is actually better because the extra width is on the top of the new pedal rather than the bottom. Cornering clearance is further improved by a reduced stack height, down from 15. 7mm in the previous model to 13mm. That doesn't s...

Look Cycle Keo Blade Carbon Ti Road Pedals Look Cycle Keo Blade Carbon Ti Road Pedals
A few years back, we were speaking with an American moto, mountain, and components pioneer who shall remain nameless to protect his identity. He commented that, in time, just about everything will be made of carbon fiber--even bottom bracket spindles. The carbon bottom bracket of the future isn't here just yet, but the steel spring might be on the way out, indicating that the pan-carbonium future may be near. Case in point: Look Cycle has figured out a way to use a carbon fiber leaf spring to replace the spring in its top model, the Look Keo Blade Carbon Ti Road Pedals. As a top-tier model, this pedal has everything: Carbon fiber body, titanium axle, stainless steel wear plate, and a carbon leaf spring (the titular Blade) that flexes against the retention plate to hold the cleat in place. The combination of materials (Hello titanium!) and design helps make the pedal crazy light without costing it any durability--with the big weight savings coming by eliminating the heavy, coiled steel spring that tensions traditional pedals. We admit that the lugged-frame, Reynolds 531 traditionalists at the CC office had initial fears that the blade presents an obvious weak spot; however, we've found that it'd take some serious work to accidentally disengage the blade or break it. And we're not alone. Pedals equipped with Look's carbon Blade leaf spring have become conspicuous in head-on bike-throw photos of sprint finishes under the likes of Sagan and Greipel. Those mythical figures have yet to break the Blades, so we mortals don't stand much of a chance. It'd take a literal hammer blow to just the right spot, and we prefer to confine our bike-related hammering to the figurative realm. The materials and engagement aren't the only sign of the future being upon us. This pedal's platform is wider than the previous Keo, which was itself 17% wider than its predecessor. This ups the surface area from 402mm2 to a Gorilla-approved 700mm2, providing a more generous base for the huge wa...

Look Cycle Keo Classic 3 Road Pedals Look Cycle Keo Classic 3 Road Pedals
Every ride only truly starts when you clip in, and the Look Cycle Keo Classic 3 Road Pedals are the first model that many of us ever clipped into. The Keo Classic 3's appeal lies primarily in two criteria. First, their simple, functional construction privileges durable reliability over the flash and bling of carbon and titanium. Second, they're also a helluva lot less painful to pick up than the brand's $400 Blade options. They're a touch heavier than the Carbon Ti Blade Pedals, sure, but that weight penalty only amounts to around 50g per pedal. The most stalwart gram counters may flinch at that, the Keo Classic 3's blend of reliability, proven design, and affordability make it a common sight on the bikes of cyclists of all experience levels. In addition to the material differences, the Keo Classic 3 also differs from Look's top-tier Blade models at the engagement mechanism. Where the Blades that the likes of Sagan and Greipel ride feature a leaf spring design, the Classic 3 is tensioned by an appropriately classic coil spring. The synthetic pedal body and chromoly spindle are no doubt slightly heavier than the Blade Carbon Ti's carbon fiber and titanium, but we suspect the steel spring is primarily responsible for the weight difference. That spring is also responsible for the pedals' variable tension. Where the Blade pedals are only available in fixed resistance, the Classic 3 lets you dial the Newton meters to fit your personal preference--even if that preference changes over the years. Despite those differences, the Classic 3 does still say "Look Cycle" on it, and that means it's subject to the same obscenely excessive testing protocol that the French brand's flagship models suffer through. To wit: 2 million cycles at 100rpm with a load of 90kg, a protocol that outpaces standard industry specifications. According to Look, this simulates a 1,700-watt spring at 100rpm for 333 hours. Like with its more expensive stablemates, the Classic 3 survives this abuse co...

Look Cycle Keo Dual Mode Essential Power Meter Pedals Look Cycle Keo Dual Mode Essential Power Meter Pedals
From stem-gazing professionals to weekend warriors, power data has become a must for virtually any cyclist who takes their training seriously. Installing and maintaining a power meter can also be a huge pain in the ass. Look Cycles takes care of that with its Keo Dual Mode Essential Power Meter Pedals, a pedal-based power system that any cyclist can install and that recharges so you don't have to mail it in to the manufacturer to have the battery changed. And since installation is as easy as swapping pedals, the Keo Power Meter Pedals are a one-meter solution that follows you from crit sled to climbing bike to TT machine. Compared to the Regular Power Meter Pedals, the Essential model featured here takes power info from a single side. This makes it both lighter and less expensive, though it does mean that the data gathered may be less accurate than if it were reading power from both pedals simultaneously. The power meter-equipped pedal's spindle incorporates a transmitter pod, which broadcasts data collected by eight strain gauges tucked inside the pedal's axle. This design measures power output at a claimed accuracy of +/-2%, putting it in the same percentage range as most other power meters. In addition to gathering power data, the Keo Power Meter Pedals also read cadence and determine pedaling efficiency by looking for dead spots and pedal rotation consistency, helping the aspirational racer address the hobgoblins of pedal stroke mechanics. In a world where marginal gains matter, being able to analyze your pedal stroke and correct inefficiencies is an easy way to gain a few precious watts, which could in turn be the difference between an inconspicuous mid-pack finish and raising your arms in the podium photo. Aesthetically, the Keo Power Meter Pedal mimics the standard Keo very closely, with an injected carbon pedal body, a wide platform for a confident connection, and a protective stainless steel plate. The pedal does take on a slightly beefier side profil...

The sound of clipping in marks the passage from a leisurely enthusiast to that of a dedicated, life-long cyclist. For many of us, Look pedals were the first ones we clipped into. Look's fantastic Keo Sprint packs a ton of value for the road clipless set and if you are looking for some pedals that won't break the bank, "look" no further. Their simple, functional construction privileges durable reliability over the flash and bling of carbon and titanium. They're also way less expensive than the Carbon Ti Blade Pedals, sure, there is a weight penalty of about 50g per pedal but the Keo Sprint's blend of reliability, proven design, and affordability make it a no brainer if you are pedal shopping.In addition to the material differences, the Keo Sprints differ from Look's top-tier Blade models at the engagement mechanism. Where the Blades that the likes of Sagan and Greipel ride feature a leaf spring design, the Sprints are tensioned by a coil spring. The dual-injected pedal body and chromoly spindle are no doubt slightly heavier than the Blade Carbon Ti's carbon fiber and titanium, but we suspect the steel spring is primarily responsible for the weight difference. That spring is also responsible for the pedals' variable tension. Where the Blade pedals are only available in fixed resistance, the Sprint lets you dial the Newton meters to fit your personal preference--even if that preference changes as you progress.Like with its more expensive stablemates, the Sprints use a similar design of a tapered spindle and bearings and in this case it is a blend of a roller bearing (inboard) and a needle bearing cartridge (outboard, in the tapered end). This allows Look engineers the ability to keep stack height low enough so you can rock through the corners.

Mavic Carbon Rim Brake Pad Mavic Carbon Rim Brake Pad
The one common thread between wheel manufacturers seems to be that they all incorporate their signature colors in their carbon-specific brake pads. For Mavic, this obviously means that the Carbon Rim Brake Pads are bright yellow. Mavic's insistence on innovation over the years means that it produces a dizzying array of rim braking surfaces, so we'll break it down for you here: If you ride the Cosmic Ultimate; Cosmic Carbone 40 Tubular, Clincher, or Elite; or the Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Tubular or Clincher, then you'll want the Standard brake pads. If you've taken the plunge on the sexy new CXR Ultimate 80 or 60 Tubular Wheelsets, then you'll want the CXR brake pads. The difference between the two pad types is that the CXR pads are thinner and longer because the new CXR rims themselves are wider. Either way, though, be sure to never use normal pads or Exalith brake pads on your carbon wheels, as they will destroy the rims, void the warranty, and put you at risk. If you have any questions about pad/rim compatibility, give us a shout and we'll help you sort it out. Finally, note that the CXR Ultimate 60 Clincher Wheels have an Exalith II braking surface, which is aluminum, not carbon on, so the rims will eat these pads alive.

You've read the phrase "use with recommended brake pads" many times. If you have the Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLR, Cosmic Carbone SLE, R-Sys SLR, or Ksyrium SLR rims, the Standard Exalith II Brake Pads are exactly what is recommended. If you're looking for spare stoppers for the CXR Ultimate 60 Clincher wheels, then you'll want the CXR Exalith II pads, which are longer and skinnier than the Standard pads to account for the CXR's wider rim. Wither way, the wheels use an Exalith coating to improve stopping power and minimize wear to the braking surface. While a standard brake pad will be demolished by this coating, the Exalith II pads are hard enough to take advantage of the increased stopping potential of Exalith II. This means longer life for your pads. Please note that the CXR pads included here are only for use with the CXR Ultimate 60 Clincher wheels. The CXR 60 Clinchers have an Exalith II brake track, while the CXR 80 Tubular and CXR 60 Tubular wheels have carbon brake tracks, which will be chewed up by the super-hard Exalith II brake pads, voiding warranty and damaging the rims.

Michelin Power Competition Tire - Clincher Michelin Power Competition Tire - Clincher
A few years after the introduction of its Pro4 tire line, Michelin is attracting attention for the arrival of Pro4's successor, the Power Competition Tire. Power took its time getting here, evolving from Michelin's moto GP tires of the same name, but it looks to have been worth the wait. The entire Power line boasts quantifiable gains compared to its aging predecessor -- delivering improvements in rolling resistance, puncture protection, and grip -- and each different model is built using a slightly different formula to suit it best to its specific discipline. In the case of the Competition, this entails a focus on lower rolling resistance, dependable puncture protection, supple grip for hard cornering, and -- of course -- competition-grade speed. After extensive testing against the Pro4 Service Course tires, Michelin's everyday training tire, the Competition was found to provide a 10-watt improvement in performance, equating to significant time gains at speed. (We'd be remiss if we didn't note that the comparison was between a racing-specific tire and an everyday training tire.) Michelin doesn't give detailed information about the Competition's composition, but we do know that it uses resin-reinforced rubber known as Race Compound to construct the Competition, giving it rolling resistance improvements and improved durability that justify a slightly heavier weight.

PowerTap P1 Power Meter Pedals PowerTap P1 Power Meter Pedals
Freedom to measure power data from any bike you've got stashed in the garage is a valuable thing, and until now, it wasn't an option available from PowerTap. The P1 Power Meter Pedals represent a huge step forward for the brand's versatility, measuring power entirely from one mechanism contained in the pedals. If you're looking for data on your output on the roads but decide to step up your XC training midway through the season for a fall race, just swap out the P1 pedals to whichever machine you choose in the same way you'd switch any other pair of pedals. Another benefit of having power measured directly from the pedals is the ability to collect data from each leg. Everyone has a dominant side, and knowing which half of your body works harder during a ride can be extremely beneficial. Once you have the P1 pedals set up, they'll pair easily with your existing head unit, as PowerTap wisely made them compatible with ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart, and to move them between bikes, you won't need any special tools beyond what you'd use to change out a normal set of pedals. PowerTap does deliver the setup with its own cleats and hardware, which you should stick to using exclusively with the pedals to make sure the interface works the way it should, and you can plan on the battery keeping the system running for about 60 hours of pedal-mashing, berm-rallying ride time.

PowerTap P1S Power Meter Pedal PowerTap P1S Power Meter Pedal
Given the ever evolving options in frameset aerodynamics, tire clearance, gram reduction, brake standards, and our own dogged adherence to the n+1 rule, we often find ourselves with a variety of different options in the stable. Climbing bikes, crit sleds, TT rockets, gravel adventurers--every bike serves its own unique purpose. This creates two big issues: equipping them all with power meters and explaining each acquisition to dubious significant others. The easily transferable PowerTap P1S Power Meter Pedals address the first issue. You're on your own with the second. The P1S is similar to the more expensive P1 Pedals, but it measures power in the left pedal, only, making it one of the most economical options for power measurement. This obviously appeals to the self-sponsored racer, and that appeal is only heightened when you consider that swapping them out to another bike is exactly as easy as swapping out a regular set of pedals--all you need is a pedal wrench and a little bit of grease. In contrast to pedal-based power meters that gather data with pods dangling from the crank arms, the P1S pedals contain the entire mechanism for gathering information within the pedal body itself. Power data is determined with the use of 40 individual measurements of angular velocity per pedal rotation for precise measurements of both round and oval/non-round chainring setups. These pedals feature ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart connectivity to seamlessly pair with your head unit or other compatible device for data viewing and file tracking. The pedals come with a pair of PowerTap's proprietary cleats. They look similar to several popular competitor's cleats, but they aren't. When it comes to the cleat/pedal interface, we don't like to risk the obvious safety hazards of unpredictable or sloppy engagement, so we don't recommend trying to force cleats into pedals that they aren't built for. In all cases, we strongly suggest sticking with the manufacturer's recommendation.

Profile Design Aeria T2 AL Aerobar Profile Design Aeria T2 AL Aerobar
Profile Design introduced an aluminum version of its Aeria aerobars with the Aeria T2 Alloy, and they look and perform much like their lighter counterparts, with a notably lower price. While you won't get any of the road-dampening, weight-saving benefits of carbon, you'll get almost all of the other features of the Aeria T2 carbon with the aluminum version. Time-trialists now have another UCI-approved, 3:1 ratio option to choose from that offers effective aerodynamic positioning with plenty of maneuverability. The Aeria Alloy's basebar, extensions, and brackets are all made with 6061-T6 hydroformed aluminum, with zero drop throughout. The extensions are narrower than other similar offerings from Profile Design, yet have a shorter reach to keep them easy to control. Profile Design uses a patent-pending integrated bracket to secure the extensions while joining the brackets and wing together for a sleek design that hopes to create more longevity for bolts that aren't left exposed to the elements. Like the carbon version, the Aeria T2 aerobars are fully compatible with Di2 integration so you'll have fewer distractions while you're racing and less drag in the wind. The performance-oriented design of the T2 keeps these aerobars aggressive, but Profile Design includes aluminum S-Bend extensions with an adjustment range of 200-300mm so that you still have options for low hand placement. If you end up wanting to adapt the shape of the bars later, the extensions can be swapped out for any of Profile Design's other carbon or aluminum options.As with most of Profile Design's aerobar options, customization is encouraged throughout the Aeria, with included risers that can give you the highest stack of any Profile Design model, taking the bars from 55mm to 153mm to add comfort when you need it. The cushioned armrests offer 30mm of adjustment as well, and altogether, these aerobars will add about 850g to your frame.

Profile Design Aeria T4 Profile Design Aeria T4
If your taste is more to a traditional bend aerobar, but you want the fastest, most adjustable bar available, Profile Designs Aeria T4 may just fit the bill. This full carbon aerobar is an award winning design that delights bike fitters with 8 bolts and seemingly infinitely movable arm rests and extensions. The UCI 3:1 ratio rule segregated aerobars into two categories for several years: those that were compliant and good for time trialists and cyclists, and those that weren't, and were only fit for triathletes who don't fall under UCI regulations. Fitters didn't have optimal choices for athletes, and often riders were relegated to a sub-par aerodynamic position. Not only does the Aeria T2 fulfill the UCI 3:1 ratio requirement, they are shorter and more streamlined which give you better control while climbing in the bull-horns. Profile Designs molded the basebar from a from high-modulus carbon fiber which provides optimal strength to weight ratio. Using this material, rather than aluminum, allowed Profile to optimize the shape to create the least amount of drag that was still compliant to UCI 3:1. If you look closer you'll see how the series of tapered points, from the center to the shoulder and then again from the brake caliper to the shoulder, form a series of airfoil-like designs that cut through the air. The bar is designed for internal cable routing and is Di2 compatible, which further lends to its clean, wind-cheating profile. The patent-pending J4 brackets connect to the bars in a simple fashion so that you won't struggle with not having enough hands for installation. While they champ down the extensions, they simultaneously attach to the base bar. The entire system features only 8-marine grade bolts that control the adjustment for six different points. The armrest clamps are narrower than Profile's other versions, which also minimizes the surface that comes in contact with the wind. Stack height moves from 55 to 135mm making it the highest ...

Profile Design Prosvet Carbon Basebar Profile Design Prosvet Carbon Basebar
Plenty of innovation happens inside and outside of UCI regulations, so deciding which side is best to be on comes down to what type of racing you'll be doing. With Profile Design's Prosvet Carbon Basebar, you won't be UCI-legal, but for plenty of triathlons, that's not a requirement. These bars strive to provide riders with an option that's aggressively aerodynamic while still controllable. The Prosvet looks similar to Profile Design's Svet Zero basebars, but in exceeding the 3:1 ratio, it has a few key differences. Made from multi-directional carbon fiber to absorb road vibration and provide a stiff racing platform, the Prosvet has a more aggressive -20mm drop compared to the Svet Zero, orienting you farther forward, with brake extensions that include upturned rather than straight ends to allow for a wider variety of hand positions. The slim wings on the tops of the Prosvet are deeper than the similarly-shaped Svet Zero's, which helps create less drag but also provides stability and comfort while you're climbing a hill or riding back into transition -- a nice practical extra that shows Profile Design didn't focus on speed at the expense of maneuverability with this model.The Prosvet is compatible with a wide variety of extensions, and fits on 31. 8mm diameter handlebars. To keep your racing bike looking clean, the bars come pre-slotted for use with Di2 components, and will only add about 200-220g to your frame depending on which width you choose.

Profile Design Svet R Carbon Basebar Profile Design Svet R Carbon Basebar
Given their solitary, no-draft nature, we wouldn't disagree if someone claimed that properly dialed bike fit is more important for triathlons and time trials than any other cycling discipline. With the exception of the occasional (prolonged) pass, a triathlete or TT specialist is in the wind 100% of the time, so the customizable fit of kit like Profile Design's Svet R Carbon Basebar is the only respite from the dragging grip of the wind. The Svet R's Two-Way Fit design is, like most features with such involved names, actually a simple mechanic to help bring stack height into the sweet spot for any cyclist's ideal aerodynamic position. The bar can be installed with the wings angle down, slamming the stack with a 20mm drop to the brake extensions that maintains a tucked position while navigating tricky corners on the brake levers. Alternatively, the Svet R can be flipped to provide 20mm of stack for more upright stability when you're not stretched out on the aerobars. Either way, the aerobars themselves clip in at the same spot, level with your stem clamp. The brake extensions themselves are flat, and the lack of an additional rise helps to maintain an aggressive posture even while you're not on the aerobars. Cable routing is internal, eliminating telltale ridges under bar tape that can throw off your grip while catching wind. The basebar's carbon fiber construction orients the fibers to accommodate the load bearing requirements for different areas, keeping material to a minimum while maintaining a structural integrity that, with proper torque on the stem mounting hardware, will stand up to virtually any in-saddle abuse you can pour onto it -- all while weighing around a claimed 90g less than the top competing alloy models.

Profile Design Svet Zero Carbon Basebar Profile Design Svet Zero Carbon Basebar
Developing a set of base bars that offer the least possible amount of wind resistance while maintaining a UCI-legal 3:1 ratio is a goal that requires a good deal of fine-tuning. Profile Design took its time a few years ago with the Svet Zero Carbon Basebar, and has since not felt compelled to change its sleek, customizable design that's well suited for use in UCI-sanctioned races and triathlons. Multi-directional carbon fiber construction keeps the weight of these base bars low, at between 200g and 210g, depending on which size you end up with. It also serves to help absorb road vibrations while providing plenty of stiffness for racing. By designing the Svet Zero with a true zero drop, Profile Design ensures you'll stay in a low, aerodynamic position even while riding out of the saddle, an objective that's helped further by the overall forward orientation of the bars. The flat, wing-shaped tops of the bars were included to slice through wind, but also provide a comfortable place to rest your palms when you're recovering or climbing. Profile Design paid attention to comfort when creating the straight brake extensions as well, delivering another relatively natural position to ride in -- a nice option when you're looking at investing in aggressive aerobars. If you're worried about what cables would do to a clean-looking set of base bars like these, set your mind at ease with the knowledge that they come pre-slotted and ready to be used with Di2 components. The Svet Zero is compatible with 31. 8mm handlebars, and it works with a variety of extension options.

Profile Design T1+ Carbon Aerobars Profile Design T1+ Carbon Aerobars
Profile Design continues to push the boundaries of aerobars, even though it effectively invented them decades ago. The T1+ Carbon Aerobars have been selected as the official aerobar of the Ironman Triathlon, and given that they include a carbon fiber construction and Profile's brand new F-35 armrests and J4 brackets, it's no wonder why.Profile Design constructed the T1+ Carbon bars from a unidirectional carbon fiber. Why unidirectional' Well, compared to a woven carbon fiber, unidirectional carbon is oriented as it sounds, with one direction, or on one axis. Compared to woven layups, unidirectional fibers provide higher levels of rigidity, while also improving the characteristic of vibration dampening. The Viper bars use an anatomic ski-bend with 0mm of drop in order to minimize discomfort at the wrist. The handlebar clamps, made from forged 6061-T6 aluminum, tighten to the bars separately from the extensions. These clamps are separate from the armrests, so you're able to first determine the width that you're comfortable riding with. Afterwards, you set the length of the extensions, and then adjust the armrests to your desired position. And since the armrest clamp is round and clamps onto a round tube, you're able to adjust the cant of the armrests. Essentially, this provides some height adjustment, while also allowing you the opportunity to have the armrests tilted either inward or outward. For those who prefer a narrow position, having the armrests tilted upward toward the stem provides a secure feeling. The armrest clamps, known as J4 brackets, are also able to be moved fore and aft on the extensions themselves.J4 brackets allow you to set the 16mm-thick F-35 anatomic armrests at two different widths, as well as to adjust the angle of the rests and to set three fore and aft positions. People who prefer a wider position often like to rotate the rests so that they're cradling and guiding their forearm in the direction of the extension. The J4 iteration of bra...

Profile Design T2 Wing Base Bar Profile Design T2 Wing Base Bar
With the option of buying your base bar and extensions as a kit-of-parts, riders of all levels and budgets are now able to fully customize their triathlon or time trial bike. The Profile Designs T2 Wing Base Bar gives you the same wind-cheating shape as a carbon bar, only in a more economical aluminum version. This 6061 aluminum wing profile was designed to mimic the wing shape of the carbon Viper Wing base bar. It's a flat bar, meaning that there's zero drop from the top to the bullhorns. In addition, the bar between the center clamp area and the bullhorns has been flattened (in line with the UCI 3:1 ratio) minimizing the profile of the bar in the wind. In terms of comfort, the T2 features a shape that's easy to rest your hands on between efforts. Additionally, the reach to the bullhorns is 157mm. This allows you to position your hands on the bullhorns, much as you would on brake hoods, for either climbing or out-of-the-saddle riding. The ends of the horns were designed for plug-style bar-end brake levers. There are also cut-outs in the side, so you're able to thread cables through the bar and then out the back. Likewise, there are also cut-outs for older clamp-style brake levers where you have to run the cable externally. The Profile Design T2 Wing Base Bar is compatible with a 31. 8mm stem. It's available in a 40, 42, and 44cm width (measured center-to-center) and in the color Black. Please note that this bar weighs in around 250 to 265 grams depending your selected width.

Profile Design T2+ Clip-On TT Bars Profile Design T2+ Clip-On TT Bars
For years, the ski-bend aero bar was everything. Luckily, people weren't satisfied. Eventually, racers were cutting off the ends of their ski-bend bars, which led to a straight bar being tested in the tunnel. Aero, when parallel or nearly parallel to the ground, yes. The resulting position was more like a bullet. It worked for some, but for most it was too low. So, with a subtle S-bend, Profile Design's T2+ Clip-On TT Bars are the solution. Your hands are still low and "aggressive," but the difference in height between your armrests and the end of the extensions is minimized to enhance comfort. The big difference between using a ski-bend and an S-bend is that the S-bend, ironically, is more like how skiers hold their poles when fully tucked -- your wrists are bent and your hands are tilted down. The 335mm S-bend extensions are made of 6061 aluminum and are mated to the same clamps and hardware found on the T1 aero bars. The handlebar clamps, made from forged 6061 aluminum, tighten to the bars separately from the extensions. These clamps are separate from the armrests. So, you're able to first determine the appropriate width, and then set the length of the extensions and angle of the armrests. And since the armrest clamp is round on a round tube, you're able to adjust the cant of the armrests. Accordingly, this provides some height adjustment, as well as allowing you the opportunity to have the armrests tilted inward or outward. For those who like a narrow position, having the armrests tilted upward toward the stem provides a secure feeling. And for those who prefer a wide position, we recommend that you lower the armrests and tilt them outward. The armrest clamps, known as J2 Brackets, are also able to be moved fore and aft on the extensions themselves. J2 brackets allow the user to set the F-19 armrests at two different widths, three fore/aft positions, and to adjust the angle of the rests. Included with the F-19 armrests are 12mm spacers that allow a higher r...

Profile Design T2+ Cobra Carbon Clip-On TT Bar Profile Design T2+ Cobra Carbon Clip-On TT Bar
Profile Design is a veritable one-stop shop for customizing your time trial or triathlon position. In addition to several base bars, they also have over a half dozen extensions to choose from. The T2+ Carbon Clip-On TT Bars are one of the more popular extension shapes for anyone who needs to maximum hand positions and comfort. Rather than a gradual upward ski-bend curve, the T2+ extensions jog downward, running almost parallel to the ground. This allows your wrists to align with your forearms, while also permitting your hands to comfortably wrap around the underside of the bars. This bend has been popularized by professional cyclists and triathletes, as it's more aggressive than the traditional ski-bend design -- the position creates a low frontal profile. The drop in the bars allows your hands to wrap around them for extra stability during hard intervals. The T2+ extensions were constructed from a multi-directional, multi-layered carbon fiber that places an emphasis on strength and durability rather than stiffness and low-weight. Additionally,the bars feature internal drilling if you choose to run bar-end shifters. Profile Design mated the T2+ extension with its J4 bracket. With this bracket, the armrests are set back 20mm from the center of the base bar, and they're reversible for a more forward armrest position. It's also compatible with aftermarket risers in order to elevate the armrest while maintaining a desired wrist angle. Even better, it's not difficult to adjust. In fact, it's all done with a single bolt. The T2+ bars are finished with Profile's F-35, EVA molded armrests. These are adjustable for width and reach ,which allows you to position them exactly where you need them. The Profile Design T2+ Carbon Clip-On TT Bars fit both 31. 8mm and 26. 0mm base bars (with the included shim). Additionally, they're available in one size and in the color Black.

Profile Design Vertex Saddle - Chromoly Rail Profile Design Vertex Saddle - Chromoly Rail
When you're racing a time trial or a triathlon, you know body position is crucial to not fatiguing too early. Body position can be heavily impacted by your saddle, which is why Profile Design engineered its Vertex Saddle line specifically for riding these disciplines. The Chromoly Rail version includes lightweight, responsive chromoly steel rails, and was designed with a seat tube angle of 75 to 80 degrees in mind. Foam is injected to pair with a composite shell to create a shape that's most anatomically efficient for riders who are stretched out over their aerobars for long periods of time, and the Vertex is built with a strategic cutout in the middle to relieve pressure and provide ventilation while you race. Over the top of the shell, an anti-slip microfiber cover keeps things feeling soft, while Profile Design kept the durometer high enough to make sure you get the support and longevity you need out of this event-specific saddle. The Vertex will add about 310g to your frame, and its clamp diameter measures 7mm.

This saddle uses rails made with titanium to absorb road shock for a more comfortable ride, and it adds less weight to your frame while remaining just as strong compared to the Vertex Chromoly saddles in this line. Profile Design uses injected foam paired with a composite shell to create a shape that's most beneficial for riders stretched out over aerobars, and this model of the Vertex includes a cutout in the middle of the saddle to aid in pressure relief and ventilation. An anti-slip microfiber cover is stretched over the shell to keep the saddle feeling smooth, not abrasive, against your skin, and the saddle's firmness ensures it will keep its shape and provide consistent support over its lifetime. Weighing in at around 285g, the Vertex Titanium includes a 7mm clamp zone.

Otherwise, the injected foam in the composite shell follows the same shape designed to maximize efficiency for riders in a more forward position as the other Vertex saddles. This saddle was also designed with the same seat tube angles, 75 and 80 degrees, in mind as its siblings, and is made with a microfiber cover for added softness close to the skin.

To improve upon an already solid tire, Schwalbe started with triple compound rubber, adding Snakebite and Sidewall protection that teams with a liquid, tubeless sealant to retain air pressure over time and help resist punctures. The firm center strip improves the rolling resistance by a claimed ten percent while softer shoulders grip the tarmac for control while cornering at high speeds. Schwalbe's MicroSkin construction adds durability to the Pro One, helping the tire resist ill-intentioned debris on the roads so you get through your race flat-free, while the tubeless construction allows you to race with the tires at lower air pressure and eliminates friction between the tube and tire that can slow you down.

Selle Italia Flite Tekno Flow Saddle Selle Italia Flite Tekno Flow Saddle
The Flite Tekno Flow Saddle is an updated take on Selle Italia's classic silhouette. It incorporates 30% carbon fiber in its shell, Selle Italia's CarboKeramic rails, and some generous padding for a platform that cushions bumps and absorbs road noise without bouncing you down the road as you pedal. It's also got a comically low claimed weight of just 125g, 45g less than the next lightest model in the Flite line.

Selle Italia Iron Flow S Saddle Selle Italia Iron Flow S Saddle
Selle Italia has been making saddles by hand in Italy for over a century, so when the brand decided to develop a line specifically for triathlon, we weren't surprised to see it come up with innovative designs built to address key, tri-specific concerns. Made with a durable Fibra-Tek cover and Titanium 316 rails, the Iron Flow S Saddle is the slimmer option within the Iron Flow line, built for those with narrower hips and sit bones. Selle Italia begins by addressing concerns of discomfort with a generous cut-out in the middle of the Iron Flow. As with the Italian company's road models, this improves circulation and relieves pressure on sensitive areas. The tri-specific Iron Flow also takes the cut-out one step further by leaving the nose split and bridging the gap with rubber in an open honeycomb pattern. This helps facilitate airflow so you can finish your bike leg chafe-free in dry shorts. The shape of the saddle itself addresses chafing as well, with the nose retaining vertical sides and a dramatically tapered shape for more thigh clearance while pedaling. The weight of the Iron Flow is low overall, at a claimed 265g, and Selle Italia engineers were careful to keep it that way when adding extra padding. They chose to build up just the rear of the saddle with cushioning, which tilts hips forward for lower back support and more leverage on aerobars. The saddle helps you maintain your position so you can focus on squinting at the ages written on the calves of riders you're passing or who are passing you. Past the rear, the saddle's body extends in a shape reminiscent of the spoiler on a sports car to further improve aerodynamics -- hopefully gaining you precious seconds heading into T2.

Selle Italia Iron Tekno Flow L Saddle Selle Italia Iron Tekno Flow L Saddle
Selle Italia brings decades of expertise making saddles by hand to the world of triathlon with its Iron Tekno Flow L Saddle. With eye-catching honeycomb flair and a hit of Italian tricolor, the Iron Tekno line offers triathletes an innovative, functional design that separates itself from the more traditional tri saddles on the market. If you've used Selle's idmatch fit guide and have found you need a saddle that accommodates wider sit bones, the wider Flow L design is the Iron Tekno model for you. The patented construction process Selle Italia uses in its CarboKeramic rails involves fusing carbon fiber with a ceramic particle-infused resin, creating a material that Selle engineers credit with being both stronger and lighter than carbon alone. A Fibra-Tek cover is stretched over the saddle's full carbon body and light padding, the latter of which is strategically placed to add comfort without bulk. Instead of just relying on materials for comfort, Selle shaped the saddle itself to provide more comfort in the places triathletes need it. The Tekno Flow features better clearance between the saddle and inner thighs to prevent chafing and a layer of honeycombed rubber between the rails to facilitate airflow and dry your chamois as quickly as possible out of T1. Selle placed heavy emphasis on making sure the Iron Tekno line would be both efficient and comfortable for riders spending an extended amount of time on aerobars. At 145mm, the saddle's widest point has an upturned shape with padding to add support and keep hips rotated forward. The saddle tapers into an aerodynamically shaped nose, and the carbon construction helps keep the overall weight lower than most tri saddles at a claimed 210g.

Selle SMP Avant Saddle Selle SMP Avant Saddle
Though Selle SMP has been making saddles in Italy since just after WWII, the brand inexplicably christened the Avant Saddle with a French word. The choice is doubly confusing given that "avant" translates to "before" when the saddle's recommended use situates it closer to the "behind" side of things. Semantic nitpicking disappears once you're actually atop the Avant, though, as it presents a wide, generously padded (by Selle SMP's standards) face to your derriere. Maybe the saddle's confusing title is meant to stress that it puts comfort ahead of any other criteria. The Avant is built with wide sit bones in mind, and Selle SMP recommends it for men whose waists range from 34 to 39in and women in the 32 to 37in range. Strategic cutouts and a the iconic, drooping nose help ensure that the soft tissues between sit bones don't suffer. This is especially apparent when sitting forward on the saddle to drive a high pace on the flats. The embroidered branding on the full-leather (black) or blemish-free synthetic (colored) cover adds a touch of Italian elegance--though, to be fair, we've just come to expect this from Selle SMP.

Selle SMP Blaster Saddle Selle SMP Blaster Saddle
We're used to seeing pressure-relieving cutouts on road saddles, and Selle SMP understands that trail riders might want the comfort of its signature cutout channel too. The Selle SMP Blaster Saddle blends the company's renowned pressure-relieving design and a durable nylon/carbon composite shell for a resulting versatility to span both road and mountain applications. Like the all-rounder Stratos and Dynamic, the Blaster is best suited for cyclists with average-width pelvises, as it features a moderate profile and a fairly minimal amount of padding. At the nose, there's the characteristic "beak" shape designed to provide a flat base while sitting that minimizes pressure. Down the center, SMP's pronounced central channel further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The back of the saddle is raised for an enhanced seated pedaling position, where body weight is divided between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity region. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the coccyx while riding over rough surfaces.

Selle SMP Composit 70th Anniversary Limited Edition Saddle Selle SMP Composit 70th Anniversary Limited Edition Saddle
Selle SMP is turning 70 the way any dedicated cyclist would like to: by maintain a trim, lightweight, padding-free, race-focused body. Case in point: the Composit 70th Anniversary Limited Edition Saddle, which maintains the same sleek profile as the standard Composit but with a few celebratory additions that range from the material to the aesthetic. Despite those changes, the saddle still features SMP's signature drooping nose, a design that may first inspire quizzical looks but, after riding it, often ends up inspiring zealous devotion. But the special edition additions: The material elements include handpainted plating underneath, which is secured with a special run of bolts produced by a high-end Italian machinist outfit. The aesthetic touches are accents to the tune of the Italian tricolor. Somewhere between the two, the on-tone stitching across the saddle's face is made from a soft, luxurious yarn. It's a pleasant embellishment that adds a touch of functional grip. Aesthetics and form also meet in the saddle's cover, which is either real leather (black) or synthetic microfiber (white). The Composit is similar to Selle SMP's wider Forma, but it's designed for smaller waists and body types--think more along the lines of Il Pirata than the Lion King. That means the Composit, as mentioned above, eschews padding altogether, making it the lightest of the Anniversary line and recommending it for cyclists who want to feel as much of the road as possible. The saddle's "beak" shape provides a flat base to support the ischium while alleviating pressure on the genitals, regardless of how slammed your stem is. The Composit also features SMP's pronounced central channel, which further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The raised tail helps coach the hips into a forward rotation for more efficient pedaling, a position that also keeps body weight divided between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity region.

The wide-bodied Drakon Saddle is part of SMP's 70th Anniversary Edition collection, which adds a few celebratory embellishments to the already impressive SMP aesthetics. These include SMP's usual tricolor treatment--albeit a bit more stylized--a hand-painted base plate, and details embroidered with a special edition, softer yarn. New looks aside, the 70th Anniversary Drakon is functionally the same as the standard model. It's the widest of the Anniversary saddles, so it's ideally suited to wide hips--SMP summarizes the size recommendation as bib shorts sizes medium through X-large. It's also got a standard amount of padding, which is notable considering that many of SMP's saddles eschew padding altogether in pursuit of lightweight racing stats. As with its skinnier stablemates, the Drakon features a drop beak-shaped nose to relieve pressure on soft tissue regions. This design also means that when you ride, it's easier to roll forward and keep a flat back. The tail kicks up to encourage that hip rotation, and the length of the saddle is bifurcated by a generous cutout, which adds yet more pressure relief to the most important point of bike/cyclist contact.

The Dynamic 70th Anniversary Limited Edition Saddle is functionally equivalent to the standard Dynamic--it does, however, feature a splash of Italian flair in the form of tricolor details, special graphics, so-soft embroidery across its face, and a hand-painted baseplate secured with bolts machined at a boutique shop in Italy. Given that Selle SMP's saddles are already about as hand-crafted and Italian it gets, these special embellishments make the 70th anniversary Dynamic Italianissimo. [Oh dear, oh dear - Ed] Despite the updated graphics, the celebratory Dynamic is essentially the same saddle Dynamic fans know and love. It keeps padding to a minimum, so it doesn't feel like a throw pillow wrapped on your seatpost, bouncing you down the road during sustained efforts while seated. At the nose, the characteristic "beak" shape provides relief to cyclists across the spectrum of stem slamming, but the flat central section and raised tail keep ischial support on-point while coaching your hips into a more efficient angle of attack on the pedals. A pronounced central channel finishes the roster of comfort-focused features, ensuring that a lack of padding doesn't mean sensitive tissues take a beating. Though it's minimal, the saddle does still feature some foam elastomer padding, which is wrapped in either leather (black) or synthetic microfiber (white). Its durable nylon/carbon composite shell rides on stainless steel rails, ensuring a secure perch that's equal to virtually any cycling discipline.

Selle SMP Glider 70th Anniversary Limited Edition Saddle Selle SMP Glider 70th Anniversary Limited Edition Saddle
Over the past 70 years, Selle SMP has gradually developed one of the most--if not the most--signature saddle profiles in the industry. To celebrate those seven decades, SMP is releasing a batch of 70th Anniversary Edition Glider Saddles, which feature some special branding and aesthetic embellishments that set them apart from the brand's already impeccably tailored fare. These include tricolor highlights--which are, admittedly, nothing new for Selle SMP--and a hand-painted plate underneath that's secured with bolts made by an Italian machinist. Those details don't affect how the saddle rides, of course, but they are indicative of the engineering and careful design that SMP dumps into all of its saddles. The Glider is based on the Stratos model, but it's built for slightly wider hips than its versatile parent saddle. As with all SMP saddles, the Glider features a drop beak-shaped nose which relieves pressure from soft tissue regions. This design also means that when you ride, it's easier to roll forward and keep a flat back.

But, looks are deceiving, and once you try it, the Glider saddle may just end up being your favorite saddle. They aren't the lightest saddle on the market, but they have been developed and produced after careful consideration of how the body actually interfaces with the bike, and if you are going to spend countless hours in the saddle, comfort trumps weight. The Glider, as with all SMP saddles, features a drop beak-shaped nose which relieves pressure from soft tissue regions. This design also means that when you ride, it's easier to roll forward and keep a flat back. The paddle (widest part of the saddle) has been slightly elevated so that you have something to push on when you climb or take off in the break away. The center of the 136mm wide saddle features a wide cut out which eliminates pressure in the perineal zone. It also keeps all your "bits" from getting crushed. That "highly technical" term is being used all inclusive of the male and female anatomy. The saddle is built upon traditional steel rails and a nylon/carbon fiber composite shell. You won't need to worry about your saddle being able to handle daily grind-fests without collapsing. Additionally, the padding is a foamed elastomer so that it holds its shape. The cover in black is leather and microfiber in the red and white styles. The Selle SMP Glider Saddle is 136mm x 266mm and comes in Red, White, or Black.

The bridge contributes to the calipers' enhanced modulation and more fluid, linear behavior across the braking curve, working in tandem with the levers to provide responsive stopping power whether you need to lightly temper your speed or pull up quickly to miss a crash. On the aesthetics side, Shimano subtly reduced the gap between each arm to create sleeker lines that align with the rest of the groupset's classy styling.

Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9110 Direct Mount Brake Calipers Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9110 Direct Mount Brake Calipers
A brake's primary job is to stop, so we typically consider any technology that makes it better at that an upgrade. Shimano's Dura-Ace BR-9110 Direct Mount Brake Calipers do just that, widening the window for modulation and increasing total stopping power. Those properties amount to a great big plus in our book of braking, and the fact that they also don't add any weight by doing so adds yet another plus. In fact, they actually lose weight compared to single-bolt calipers because the direct-mount design requires less material in the brake caliper and the frame, eliminating overall weight despite the addition of a second bolt. Tolerances are also improved all around: the caliper can sit closer to the frame and tire clearance is increased. A lower profile is especially useful in back as it lets the brake hide from the wind more effectively, but better tire clearance benefits both front and rear by accommodating the trend of growing tires. We're currently seeing 25mm as the standard, but we wouldn't be surprised if that bumped up to 28mm in the coming years.

Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 OT-SP41 Polymer-Coated Derailleur Cable Set Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 OT-SP41 Polymer-Coated Derailleur Cable Set
Though the Shimano's Dura-Ace R9100 groupset is a marked departure from its predecessor, the R9000, the accompanying Dura-Ace R9100 OT-SP41 Polymer-Coated Derailleur Cable Set is largely unchanged: The stainless cables are still polymer-coated and the housing is still lubed with silicone. No surprise here, since Shimano spent all of its R&D time on far more important things like shifting, redesigning the hood shape, and increasing crankset efficiency. And what a job the Japanese brand did. Some of us are inclined to call Dura-Ace R9100 the best mechanical shifting ever. That admittedly gets the Italian fetishists up in arms, but even they admit there's a clean efficiency to it that never gets old. Until the cables do. The bike lets you know when it's time to replace your cables by getting sloppy on the cassette. Listen to it, and tidy-up your shifting--the new Dura-Ace is definitely worth it.

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Groupset Shimano Ultegra 6800 Groupset
Ultegra has long been the workhorse group in Shimano's road lineup. But there is also beauty in strength, functionality, and fortitude. Shimano did not just rename the 6700 tier, however. Instead, just as the Dura-Ace groupset was completely redesigned for the 9000 series, so too has the Ultegra 6800 line been given a similar makeover so that it mimics the 11-speed functionality and aesthetics of its older sibling. Beginning with the most visible and noticed portion of the groupset, the ST-6800 levers feature a refined hood shape. They borrow the look and feel of Dura-Ace 9000, which, in turn, borrow their aesthetics from the venerable Di2 levers. The new design allows for improved grip and comfort, combined with crisper shifting. The hoods are molded from a dual-compound rubber composite. Below the hoods you'll find a sleek carbon lever with a more exaggerated outward curve than on the 6700. This makes for a more pronounced interaction with your hands from either the hoods or drops. Ten millimeters of reach adjustment for the levers accommodates a large variety of hand sizes and shapes. Although the redesign of the shifters is eye-catching, Shimano's "Rider-Tuned" philosophy is what gives the newly redesigned Ultegra such a solid rider experience. "Rider-Tuned" is the philosophy of providing added touches throughout the group, such as a shortened lever stroke. This shortened lever stroke increases the speed with which your shift moves up or down the chainrings and cassette. Moving through the drivetrain, the redesign of the front derailleur matches the new shorter stroke lever action of the shifters. To achieve this, Shimano had to revise the actuation ratio and pull yet another page from the Dura-Ace manual. The derailleur body was given a more heightened profile, with the leverage point at the top of the body. This creates a larger pull arm with more leverage, which strengthens the pull and eases the actuation, and thus lessens the shift stroke. In a simi...

Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur
The trickle down of Dura-Ace 9100 technology to Ultegra R8000 11-speed drivetrains continues with the FD-R8000 front derailleur. Shimano redesigned it to have a lighter shift action, increased frame and tire clearance, and to work better with chain lines seen on road bikes with disc brakes and shorter chainstays. Everything we love about the Dura-Ace mechanical front derailleur has carried over to the new Ultegra version. The derailleurs longer arms, which house the cable anchor bolt and debuted on the Ultegra 6800 and Dura Ace 9000 front derailleurs, allow for a lighter shift as the anchor point gives the cable increased leverage. Word is this design was born when Shimano challenged its engineers to make a mechanical version of Ultegra and Dura-Ace that performed well enough and was still able to hold its own against its electronic siblings, particularly the front derailleurs. The design worked well, but the industry trend towards wider tires and disc brakes pushed the rear end spacing out to 135 or 142mm. Cable routing was more particular with the longer arm derailleurs. Shimano even sent a guide with each derailleur to gauge which way to run the cable to the anchor bolt, but the evolving rear hub spacing made this an untenable solution. To address this, Shimano engineered a new design that increases the clearance between the front derailleur and rear tire and increases shifting responsiveness with more flexible cable routing. The FD-R8000 also includes a cable tension setting adjustment at the derailleur for a more precise and ease setup. The more compact design doesn't come at a sacrifice of shift feel. Shimano claims that the new link construction matches the force curve of the hand more naturally to reduce effort at the end of shifting. The shift throw is reduced and the effort required to throw the chain to the big ring, even (or especially) while you're exhausted and trying to bridge up, is reduced. The FD-R8000 Front Derailleur is constructed from a ...

Shimano Ultegra RD-R8000 Rear Derailleur Shimano Ultegra RD-R8000 Rear Derailleur
Shimano has used Shadow technology for years on its mountain bike rear derailleurs. It allows for a lower profile and places the derailleur further inboard, keeping them out of harm's way and allowing a better chain path off the top jockey wheel in relation to the cassette. Shimano's R9100 group is the first time we saw this technology carried over to the road side, and we're happy to see its inclusion on the Ultegra RD-R8000 rear derailleur. The RD-8000 is the crowning jewel on the new Ultegra group, and if you are building up or updating a bike, you really can't do wrong with this group. The additional range afforded by the longer cage opens up the Ultegra group to adventure bikes and brings the precision, durability, and value to the masses. Additionally, if you just want to add a wider range to your Dura-Ace steed, adding the long cage Ultegra derailleur and cassette is all you need to spin perfect circles up long mountain passes. The shifting is impeccable, the durability is immaculate and the performance gap to Dura-Ace is about a tire width's margin in a bunch sprint. The change to an aluminum cage and some other minor hardware details are all that separate the Ultegra R8000 version from the Dura-Ace 9100 unit. Two cage lengths are available with cassette ranges from 11-30t (short) and 11-34t (long). Given a few design tweaks, the R8000 rear derailleur works best when paired with R8000 or R9100 levers, and it's a perfect addition to a full Ultegra bike or those running Dura Ace who want to run a bigger cassette. Another advantage of the Shadow design is the more linear path of the derailleur when shifting, which allowed the engineers at Shimano to create a shifter with a shorter throw resulting in more precise and quicker shifts--even with the larger cassette ranges we're beginning ride on everything from tarmac to gravel. We are happy to see Shimano continuing with a barrel adjuster at the derailleur. Road shifters don't have adjusters at the levers lik...

SRAM Force 22 Groupset SRAM Force 22 Groupset
When SRAM's Red groupset was released in a 22-speed version, it was only a matter of time before that technology started to trickle down to the more cost conscious offerings. And we're happy to report that the SRAM Force 22 Groupset has the same crisp shifting and sublime ergonomics that make Red so drool-worthy, without the top-of-the-line price tag. The big story here is SRAM's "True 22" drivetrain system, which was based around the idea that one should be able to use every gear in their drivetrain. The front derailleur is a key component in achieving this, as it's been graced with Yaw technology, which allows it to pivot as it shifts, which moves the cage out of the chain's path when the drivetrain is cross chained. The rear derailleur has a redesigned B-knuckle, which adds clearance for 28t cassettes. As ever, both are controlled by SRAM's double tap shifting, which has a light shifting feel and precise gear changes. The crankset retains a similar form to the 10-speed version, but the chainrings have been enhanced for delay-free gear changes, even under power. It's a similar story when considering the cassette. Beyond adding another gear, the tooth profiles and gear spread have been carefully considered for lightning-fast shifts. The carbon fiber crank arms are highly efficient, and turn a super-stiff 24mm aluminum spindle. The brakes remain unchanged, and still produce gobs of clamping force thanks to the dual-pivot design. This kit includes an English threaded bottom bracket. The SRAM Force 22 Groupset is available in three crank lengths, from 170mm, to 175mm, with either a compact 50/34, or standard 53/39 chainring configuration, and either an 11-25, or 11-28 cassette.

SRAM Force22 Shift/Hydraulic Rim Brake SRAM Force22 Shift/Hydraulic Rim Brake
If you're longing for the superb stopping power of SRAM's Red hydraulic systems, but finding it hard to scrape together the dough, the SRAM Force 22 Hydraulic Road Rim Brakes are virtually identical but for the use of stainless steel hardware bits instead of the titanium used on Red. Otherwise, all the same performance awaits via the carbon levers, redesigned lever housings, and all the other details that make the new SRAM road hydraulic brakes so amazing. To reboot its original road and cyclocross hydraulic braking systems -- which were already ahead of their time -- SRAM pulled apart every molecule of their anatomy to find room for improvements. The lever body, housing the reservoir and master cylinder, was reconfigured for more efficient internal spacing while at the same time boosting strength and stiffness, resulting in solid, consistent performance, regardless of braking or weather conditions. The master cylinder piston itself was also completely revamped, receiving an all-new bore design and new seals, after being subjected to thousands upon thousands of testing hours in every temperature and performance setting imaginable. The goal was absolute reliability, and the new system delivers. SRAM was far from finished with updates, however. The new higher-capacity fluid bladder -- the part of the system designed to maintain braking feel and consistency in compensation for pad wear -- was also redesigned to improve fluid flow, so your brakes feel as great brand new as they do after a season of racing. At the rim, where the action happens, the smooth action of the powerful caliper translates into incredible confidence and control, allowing you to push harder and let the reins fly looser than they ever have. Opening wide enough to accommodate even the widest rims on the market (such as Zipp's Firecrest rims), the brakes are easily installed with SRAM's Connectamajig, allowing simple, clean hose connection without the hassle you would think would be necessary.

The SRAM Red Aero Link Brake Caliper Set positions the Red braking experience apart from the herd with reduced weight and higher braking power. As the name implies, it also has a sleek front profile that boast increased aerodynamics over its Red predecessors and current cousins in the Force and Rival families. The Red calipers utilize SRAM's patented AeroLink arm, hinging on a tiny pivot joint that hides behind the svelte calipers and multiplies braking power and modulation without increasing required lever squeeze force. This unique innovation allowed SRAM to significantly reduce the caliper's frontal area, evident in the simplified cable routing and single arm in comparison to the former dual-arm triangular structure still found in the Force and Rival calipers. In addition to the reduction in front surface area, SRAM attended to every detail of the caliper to ensure maximum aerodynamic efficiency. From the spring adjusters to the cable clamp to the caliper's overall face, no detail was overlooked in its potential to reduce drag. This attention to detail is apparent in tiny details such as SRAM's redesign of the oft-overlooked shaping of each caliper's two-position barrel adjuster, which now takes on a shark fin profile to literally slice through the wind. SRAM accounts for in-ride brake adjustability with an easy to access four-position indexed release lever that makes quick positioning changes a breeze but sits stealthily out of the wind when fully locked.

The past few years have been a tidal wave of generational change and innovation. It's safe to suggest that no company better embodies that than the imaginative product designers at SRAM, and no product better embodies that than SRAM's Red eTap HRD Shift and Brake Kit. Wireless electronic shifting' Check. Hydraulic disc brakes' Check. SRAM's typical zeal in approach R&D' Check. Obviously, the eTap HRD system won't be the final say in road gruppo technology, but we have a hard time imagining where the industry can go from here. Which is why we continue to trust SRAM's relentless pursuit of innovation. We first saw the seeds of this innovation on brakes like the new Guide and reworked Code series, with the eTap HRD levers importing features like Contact Point Adjustment and a healthy body of anti-heat design elements from their mountain bike counterparts. With new features comes a new model name: gone is yesterday's HydroR; here to stay is HydroHC. Contact Point Adjustment dials the amount of grab you have to put on the levers before the pads dig in to the rotors. If you like a light touch, you can dial them light; if you tend to throttle the hoods during hard efforts, maybe allowing a little leeway for incidental lever pull would be a good move. Either way, you can adjust the levers to match your style--and each other--without manually fiddling with the calipers and pads. The heat dissipation tech hinges primarily on four features: heat shield, insulated aluminum pistons, and a wider pad pocket. Of these, the stainless steel heat shields are the most notable, as they insulate the fluid from the pads, providing an extra layer of thanks-but-no-thanks that helps prevent fade during long periods of braking. All of these features were first implemented in the Guide, Level, and Code redesigns, so they've already proven their mettle in the emergency braking moments that often define off-road. At the heart of it all, SRAM's proprietary Airea communication protocol cr...

SRAM Road Disc Organic Brake Pad SRAM Road Disc Organic Brake Pad
The benefits of SRAM's Organic Road Disc Brake Pads include gains in the same areas that initially attracted us to disc brakes: engagement immediately translates to stopping power and there's virtually no breaking-in period. They also address concerns about overheating brakes by redirect heat into the rotor, not the caliper, which keeps the hydraulic oil cool and maintains consistency during long periods of continual braking. If you're coming to disc brakes from carbon rim brakes, then you'll be familiar with these pads' tendency to wear more quickly than sintered pads ' they are, after all, made from organic materials bonded with resin for a build that's similar to carbon-specific rim brake pads. Braking power also benefits from an occasional sanding to remove the glaze-like finish that builds up over time, but the extra attention to detail means more responsive braking for those moments when the alternative is a taco'd fork. Finally, we should note that some of SRAM's mountain bike calipers--the Level Ultimate and Level TM models--also use these pads, so classifying them as road-only is a bit limiting. But c'est la vie in an industry of ever changing standards.

SwissStop FlashPro Black Prince Brake Pad - 4-Pack SwissStop FlashPro Black Prince Brake Pad - 4-Pack
Going fast is only fun if you can stop when you need to, so good brake pads are indispensable if you want to push the pace. Carbon rims can complicate the equation a little bit, but the SwissStop FlashPro Black Prince Brake Pads make life simple and safe. Designed specifically for carbon rims, the Black Prince rubber compound provides excellent grip and modulation that'll make your braking feel just as strong as it does on aluminum rims. The FlashPro has deep grooves and a pronounced front edge to squeegee away water for all-weather grip, and is designed to be compatible with Shimano and SRAM calipers. The pads are deeper, too, which allows for more wear and a correspondingly longer life.

Swapping brake pads when changing between carbon and aluminum rims can be a hassle if you just want to get out the door or get a flat and then have to worry about braking function the rest of the race with that aluminum neutral wheel. The SwissStop FlashPro Yellow King Brake Pat Set takes away these worries and let you focus on the ride, whatever rim type you choose. The Yellow King was designed primarily for use with carbon rims and provides some of the best stopping power across both dry and wet conditions, with the additional bonus of being quiet and durable to boot. While all that performance is great on its own, what really sets the Yellow King Brake Pad Set apart from its competitors is the ability to move from carbon to aluminum rims while still providing awesome braking functionality. You'll want to check the pads for any aluminum debris and clean them up before throwing the carbon rims back on though just to make sure there aren't any bits that could dig into the carbon.

SwissStop RacePro BXP Brake Pad - 2-Pack SwissStop RacePro BXP Brake Pad - 2-Pack
The simple story of SwissStop's new RacePro Blue Extreme Performance (BXP) Brake Pads for alloy surfaces is that they deliver more power with less required lever force, in both wet and dry conditions. SwissStop's parent company, Rex Articoli, is a specialist in technical rubber compounds. And several years ago, it invested in new machinery and materials in order to further develop and refine the BXP compound for alloy surfaces. The goal was simple: Provide greater power and modulation, while maintaining durability and limiting brake squeal. Now, a few years later, the proof is in the testing. To go from 60 to 0 km/h in dry conditions, BXP Pads required only 35 meters. That's eight fewer than its GHP II Pads, and much fewer than the competition. When 180 Newtons (N) of force were exerted on the brake lever, BXP Pads produced 800N of braking force -- a 200N improvement over GHP II. Additionally, the response of BXP is more linear, meaning that there's no sudden grabbing. From pad engagement to wheel lockout, the harder you squeeze, the more you slow. The SwissStop RacePro BXP Brake Pads come in a complete set of four pads, and are designed to be used with Campagnolo brakes. For Shimano/SRAM, choose the FlashPro BXP Pads.

Given its niche dominance, the unrivaled effectiveness of its product, and the devoted following that it enjoys, we don't think it's a stretch to suggest that SwissStop is the Campagnolo of brake pads. The comparison is especially appropriate in the case of the RacePro Original Black Brake Pads for Campagnolo calipers. Superior stopping power, low pad-wear rates, linear brake response, and a smooth, quiet engagement--these pads are the baseline for what we expect from the genre. As with any precision-designed piece of riding gear, the RacePro Original pads have a highly specific recommended use. The compound's density is tailored for aluminum rims--carbon junkies need not apply--and they're designed to mount only on Campagnolo brake calipers from model years 2000-2010. The pads are made by Rex Articoli SA, a Swiss company whose 70 years of experience in technical compounds has made them the go-to for stopping expertise. If you're riding pads with a wheel manufacturer's label on them, then changes are good that they're actually a SwissStop model. Please note that the RacePro Original pads aren't compatible with 2011 and newer Campagnolo brakes. One order includes 4 brake pads--enough for one bike.

Terry Bicycles Butterfly Carbon Saddle - Women's Terry Bicycles Butterfly Carbon Saddle - Women's
In 1985, upon introducing a women's specific bicycle frame design to the industry, Georgena Terry created a company destined to become a household name among women cyclists throughout the world. True to her passion for cycling gear that specifically addresses the fit and needs of women, she expanded the line to include saddles, the primary touch-point while riding. And while the company has expanded and the line of saddles has grown exponentially, the Butterfly Carbon Saddle retains all of the characteristics embodied in the original Butterfly that is loved the world over. The original women's saddle, the Butterfly, was designed in 1999. While it has gone through revisions over the years, the basic design and profile have remained the same. There are now several versions of the Butterfly each one with unique features. Terry's Butterfly Carbon Saddle was placed on Carbon rails. Unique to the saddle is the oval shape of the rails. They measure 9. 6mm high by 7mm wide. This shape provides extra durability and stiffness. The carbon rails also make it the lightest of all the Butterfly saddles. The base is the same multi-density injection molded foam featured in the entire Butterfly line placing stiffer padding over the paddles and softer foam along the full length channel and cut-out to relieve pressure against soft tissue areas. Additionally, a thin layer of gel is laid over the padding for a little extra comfort during long rides. Covered in real leather with an embossed butterfly pattern, the saddle is sure to turn heads perched on your prized steed. The Terry Butterfly Carbon Saddle measures 262mm long by 155mm wide at the paddle. It weighs 218grams and is available in the color Black.

With a lightweight, tubeless-ready, open tubular casing, the Vittoria Corsa Speed G Plus Tubeless Tire is billed as the world's fastest tubeless tire and features revolutionary graphene technology for an unprecedented mix of low rolling resistance, durability, and all-weather grip. The Corsa Speed G Plus is the culmination of a collaboration between Vittoria and an external company, Directa Plus, to adapt a carbon compound known as grapheme for use in bike tires. The resulting compound is dubbed G plus, and Vittoria claims that its inclusion significantly reduces rolling resistance while increasing the durability Vittoria has long been known for. The inclusion of graphene is credited with enhancing traction, increasing durability, and reducing rolling resistance, and its impressive strength-to-weight ratio keeps the tire well-suited for racing by reducing rotational mass. According to Vittoria, the combination of G Plus and Isogrip compounds creates a tire surfacing that also rolls fast in both dry and wet conditions for confident cornering and handling no matter what nature comes up with when you're battling it out on rolling country roads. Vittoria claims that the elasticity and carbon construction of graphene creates an incredibly durable tire, but for even more reassurance it utilizes a corespun casing to increase the tire's lifespan. With multiple cotton fibers twisted together to create one yarn, core spun casings are significantly more supple than typical casings without adding unnecessary weight to the tire.

Vittoria Latex Road Tube Vittoria Latex Road Tube
You probably don't think about the tubes you put inside your tires, but with Vittoria's Latex Road Tubes, you'll have a slight advantage when it comes to speed. In testing, latex tubes are smooth enough to reduce rolling resistance by a few watts. And while a few watts may not seem like much, when you consider that switching to latex saves nearly 75g, the seemingly innocuous tube starts to make a dent in your results. The lighter tubes mean quicker accelerations and the lower rolling resistance means you'll stay at speed for longer. In addition to being faster, latex tubes are also more elastic to increase puncture resistance. Please note that most major wheel, tire, and tube manufacturers recommend against using latex tubes with carbon clinchers. Carbon brake surfaces tend to heat-up more than alloy, which can cause latex tubes to burst. Always use butyl tubes with carbon clincher rims.

Vredestein Comp Race Tire - Clincher Vredestein Comp Race Tire - Clincher
Rather than taking the time to swap out your tires every time there's a hint of rain or a rough stretch of road on your chosen route, try wrapping your rims in the Vredestein Comp Race Tire before your next several rides or races. Versatile and hardy, the Comp Race was designed to free you from having to tailor your ride around your tire's capabilities, and it's built with a triple compound construction to keep it rolling confidently through everything from a slick, rain-drenched race course to the chip-sealed shoulders on your favorite back roads. Vredestein uses a firmer rubber along the center of the tire to keep enterprising goatheads and broken glass from stealing the air from your tubes and pairs it with softer rubber on the shoulders to give the tires a supple, controlled feel on corners. While you're rolling over ruts and grooves in the roads, the Comp Race's 120 TPI casing will allow you to coast smoothly rather than bounce over inconsistencies, preventing you from losing hard-earned speed. Finally, a woven nylon layer beneath the center tread provides an additional line of defense against road debris, leaving the less-vulnerable sidewalls free to still provide their commendable grip on corners.

Vredestein Freccia Pro Tubular Tricomp Vredestein Freccia Pro Tubular Tricomp
Everybody knows that tubular tires are the business when it comes to ride quality, but since they're decidedly more work than clinchers, you need a reliable set if you're logging training miles on them. So for everyone who rides tubulars well beyond race day, the Vredestein Freccia Pro Tubular Tricomp tire is right up your alley. It uses triple compound rubber, which is specially formulated for wet weather grip, and a reinforced casing that fights punctures, while preserving the buttery smooth ride you're after.Vredestein employs its triple compound rubber placement in the Freccia Tricomp. In case you're wondering what triple compound means, essentially, the center line of the tire is built from a harder rubber compound than the shoulders. And that means that the Freccias are fast rolling and hard wearing. However, the compound employed for the center line wouldn't provide the aggressive cornering grip that's needed from an all-weather training tire, so a softer compound is used in the shoulders to boost cornering grip, and accordingly, cornering confidence. The 220 TPI tubular casing has a relatively high thread count, which helps these tires to roll fast over varying road surfaces. Basically, a higher thread count tire has a more supple casing, so the tire is able to deform with less resistance. The benefit is that instead of bouncing, the tire is able to roll through irregularities in the road surface, so you'll go faster with less energy spent. Adding to the training utility of this tire is a polyamide woven layer underneath the tread, which protects against punctures from the road debris that you'll no doubt encounter. But unlike many other puncture-resistant tires, this layer does not extend into the sidewalls. That allows the sidewall of the tire to deform naturally, which means that you'll get puncture resistance while still enjoying the smooth ride provided by the supple casing.The Vredestein Freccia Pro Tubular Tricomp tire is available in the size ...

Wolf Tooth Components RoadLink Wolf Tooth Components RoadLink
The founders of Wolf Tooth Components in Minneapolis got started with the goal of shaking up the componentry offerings on the market currently using their shared engineering and manufacturing backgrounds. Small parts like the RoadLink define that mission pretty well; the oblong aluminum and steel bit was created specifically to offset the position of a rear derailleur to make space for a wider one-by mountain bike cassette. No, the RoadLink doesn't aim to displace all order in favor of cobbled together Franken-bikes. It only works with road derailleurs, but 9-, 10-, and 11-speed one-by or double drivetrains from the major players are all fair game in terms of compatibility. Whether you want a wider gear range on your racing bike for the upcoming 'cross season or are seeking simplicity for your gravel adventure bike with a few extra granny gears, the RoadLink brings two opposing sides together to result in a win for everyone.

Wolf Tooth Components Tanpan Inline 11-Speed Conversion Wolf Tooth Components Tanpan Inline 11-Speed Conversion
When it comes to gravel grinding and cyclocross racing, we can't stand the feeling of being limited to road drivetrains. Often the hurdling and punchy off-road climbs we tackle are just too much for the small cassettes, leaving us pushing a bike when we wish we were pedaling, or we simply want the increased durability of a mountain-specific derailleur cage. Fortunately the Wolf Tooth Components Tanpan Inline 11-Speed Conversion is there for us, so we can run whatever drivetrain components our hearts desire, without feeling the need to sacrifice our drop bars. The Wolf Tooth Tanpan expands the versatility of your road shifters by amplifying the cable pull, which enables seamless communication between your road shifter and mountain derailleur. In turn, you'll find an ideal setup for converting your gravel, cyclocross, or road bike to a 1x setup, and expanding to a larger cassette to offer you lower gearing for climbing up loose fire roads, or just creating a more relaxed feel. The Inline Tanpan attaches near your shifter with a few simple steps, we recommend attaching the Tanpan near below the stem for easy on-bike access to the barrel adjuster, so you can fine tune your shifting while on the bike, though other placements can be suitable as well. To achieve the best shifting, its recommended that you use a new, 1. 1mm cable with the Wolf Tooth Tanpan.

Zipp Service Course SL Stem Zipp Service Course SL Stem
Zipp's entire Service Course line proves that aluminum still has a place in cycling componentry -- it will never be as light as carbon, sure, but it will never be as expensive either, and that's enough of a reason for us to stand behind it. Zipp strikes an admirable balance between cost, weight, and performance with the Service Course SL Alloy Stem, which features a 3D-forged 7075 aluminum construction to give it a mix of superb strength and stiffness inspired by kit built for the peloton. Both stems in the Service Course line are built in the same tooling, with smooth lines and a newly redesigned faceplate with enough negative space to for easy handlebar orientation. Compared to the pedestrian version, the Service Course SL stem drops some grams with CNC-machining and by replacing the stainless steel Torx bolts with titanium.

Zipp Service Course Stem Zipp Service Course Stem
More recently known for their advances in the world of carbon, the engineering wizards at Zipp have shown they still know and value innovative aluminum componentry with the Service Course line. Zipp continues to impress us with its Service Course Stem, offering a highly functional design that originally addressed the needs of pros and now is available for the rest of us. It provides exceptional stiffness, lightness, and positional flexibility, but it does so at a reasonable price in comparison to more expensive, often heavier stems. Zipp 3D forges the Service Course Stem from 7075 aluminum. This forging process aligns the grain structure of the aluminum, giving the material strength that allows for a thin-walled final structure and smooth shaping that complements today's sculpted carbon frames. Zipp uses durable titanium TORX head bolts on the stem to provide consistent, precise torque readings, and the bolts are more difficult to strip than traditional hex-head bolts when making pre-race adjustments. The Service Course Alloy Stem is offered in a range of seven sizes from 70 to 130mm in 10mm increments. Each length is available in two angle options -- the +/-6 option is ubiquitous these days, but the +/-17 models remind us of a bygone era where stems were dead flat and oh-so pro. It has a 31. 8mm clamp diameter and is a perfect match for Zipp handlebars, and the 1-1/8" steerer clamp has a stack height of 41mm.

Zipp SL Speed Carbon Seatpost Zipp SL Speed Carbon Seatpost
The Zipp SL Speed Seatpost has taken Zipp engineering a step further, and the result is a seatpost that is 48 grams lighter than the Service Course, but with the same durability. The SL Speed features the same adjustable, low-profile clamp system as is popular on the Service Course. It is a two-bolt system that provides adjustment both fore and aft and in the tilt of your saddle. You'll also notice that the lower portion of the clamp is beefier than other seatposts on the market. This provides extra support for those riders who prefer a more rearward position. Meanwhile, the SL Speed uses carbon fiber for the construction of the post, which keeps the weight of the post under 175 grams and also gives you a ride that dampens road vibration and chatter. While many carbon posts feature a low maximum rider weight, the maximum weight for the SL Speed is 300lbs. The saddle sits on carbon and titanium rails for performance longevity and additional vibration dampening.

Zipp SL Speed Carbon Stem Zipp SL Speed Carbon Stem
Zipp doesn't hesitate to extend their craftiness beyond their signature aerodynamic wheels. This SL Speed Carbon Stem is a prime example of Zipp's quest to reshape bike componentry from bottom to top. The most notable aspect of this stem is its ethereal lightness (a mere 123 grams in 100mm length). Being this light, Zipp uses exacting construction standards and some forward thinking to maintain the same top-notch level of performance and durability you'd find on their other go-fast products. The SL Speed Carbon Stem has rearward facing stem bolts, similar to what we've seen on Oval stems in the past. On Zipp's design, the bolts thread directly into a two-piece carbon/titanium faceplate. On the backside, the single-bolt steerer clamp appears standard in every way, but Zipp found, through product testing, that normal fasteners don't always seat properly in their bores when the clamp is torqued to spec onto the fork steerer tube. To alleviate this, they added self-aligning washers to ensure positive contact between the stem and the shoulders of the fasteners. This minute detail is one that allowed Zipp to create the main structure of the SL Speed Stem from 100% carbon fiber, without any co-molded alloy parts. The Zipp SL Speed Carbon Stem uses uni-directional carbon fiber, laminated in such a way as to have incredible torsional stiffness to resist twisting when you're really cranking on the bars in a sprint or uphill. It has a 31. 8mm clamp diameter and is available in six lengths from 70 to 120mm in 10mm increments. The stack height at the steerer clamp is 41mm and the stem is angled at +/- 6 degrees.

Zipp SL Sprint Carbon Stem Zipp SL Sprint Carbon Stem
When you want a stem that won't bow to the pressures of a pack sprint, Zipp has the answer. The Zipp SL Sprint Carbon Stem is the updated version of its highly popular SL145. It is strong enough for the most aggressive pack sprint, yet it is light enough to satisfy the weight-weenie in all of us. Like the SL145, the SL Sprint Carbon Stem has a +/-12 degree angle. What this means is that the effective stem angle is 77. 5 degrees relative to the steerer tube. While this is not parallel to the ground as in a 73 degree stem, it is much more aero than the 80-84 degree angle range provided my most other manufacturers. The stem was created as a complement to the rest of its race-worthy carbon cockpit offerings. Both the stem and faceplate were constructed with unidirectional, hand-wrapped carbon fiber. They were then treated with a clear coat, giving the overall finished stem a lustrous look. The faceplate and steerer tube bolts are titanium, but not just any titanium; Zipp sourced these bolts from the same Italian producer used by the Ducati MotoGP racing program.

Zipp Vuka Alumina Base Bar Zipp Vuka Alumina Base Bar
Knowing that the base bar is the foundation of your cockpit, Zipp engineered its new Vuka Alumina Base Bar to provide the most stable, efficient, and versatile platform available from an aluminum construction. Its sleek and aerodynamic profile lets you dial-in the perfect position by using a variety of clips and extensions. And, in addition to this, its design yields an incredibly durable base that provides an affordable alternative to the full-carbon options. Zipp modeled the Alumina after its VukaBull, using the proven 6066-series aluminum instead of carbon fiber. Compared to the VukaBull, the Alumina weighs in around 40g heavier (250g), and it doesn't feature the same airfoil shape or drop option. However, at roughly one-third of the price, and with only a minimal weight penalty, it provides you with a value-oriented base bar that's still exceptionally versatile. Zipp's engineers made the Alumina as sleek as possible, incorporating internal cable routing and smooth, natural bends that form the five-degree upswept hand grips. Borrowed from the VukaBull, this design promotes a natural wrist position for climbing and sprinting. The bar's wide mounting area provides an array of extension positions, allowing you to find the most optimal fit for your riding style. Zipp also designed the Alumina to be compatible with all current drivetrain systems and plug-in style brake levers. It's optimized for use with the Vuka Alumina Clip, but it's also compatible with the VukaClip and most other clips on the market. The Zipp Vuka Alumina Base Bar is available in a high-polish Black finish. It measures 42cm (outside-to-outside) and has a 31. 8mm clamp diameter.

Zipp's Vuka Bull Carbon Basebar has an illustrious history, even at its relatively young age. Earning both a gold medal in an Olympic time trial as well as a Kona victory, the bar has shown its versatility in two different races on two large stages. The good news is that it's available for the rest of us, too, whether we're self-sponsored amateurs or looking towards a spot in the peloton. Zipp knows that building a TT cockpit starts with a base bar, and it engineered the Vuka Bull to offer an efficient platform with the vibration dampening effects and weight-saving advantages of carbon construction that it's known for. Zipp recently revisited the Vuka Bull design, making slight alterations to its airfoil shape while keeping it fully compliant with all UCI regulations. In terms of shape, the Vuka Bull now features a slightly updated airfoil design, a concave nose, and forward-sweeping arms. An added 10mm of room for lateral adjustment in the wide clamp area allows for an array of extension positions and more freedom when making fit adjustments, ensuring you're able to find the most optimal fit for your riding style. The increased angle of the grips puts the wrists in a natural position for more stability during climbs and sprints, and at a claimed 200g, this basebar won't add excess weight to your ultralight tri or TT setup. The Vuka Bull basebar is compatible with Zipp's Vuka Alumina Clips and Vuka carbon or aluminum extensions.

Zipp Vuka Extensions Zipp Vuka Extensions
Zipp's Vuka Extensions are an integral part of the Zipp aerodynamic bar system, as they were designed to give you the perfect balance of comfort, control, and efficient aerodynamics during your race against the clock. Zipp engineered four styles of the Vuka Extensions, giving you an array of options to completely dial in a custom, aerodynamic fit. The Straight extension puts you in a low, flat-out aerodynamic position, while the Ski-Tip places you in a position built for both speed and long-distance comfort. The new Vuka Race shape was designed after compiling data and feedback from thousands of fit sessions with professional cyclists and triathletes around the world. This 'Race Bend' places the wrists at a natural angle in order to help you comfortably remain in your tucked position. The last option is called the Race Vuka Shift, which features both the innovative race bend and places the shifter directly onto the extension. This shape keeps the shifters close to your hands, meaning that you stay down in your aerodynamic tuck, even when making those crucial shifts. This option is only compatible with SRAM 900 TT, 500 TT, R2C Aero Shifter, and Zipp R2C shifters. Zipp's carbon Vuka Extensions come with an industry-standard 22. 2 mm diameter and are compatible with the new Vuka Alumina Clip, but not the VukaClip or Vukero. All extension styles have a length of 360 mm and utilize internal cable routing. The carbon Race, Straight, and Ski-Tip bends are compatible with all shifting systems. Please note: For guidelines on cutting the Vuka Extensions, please refer to Zipp's instructions provided through its official website. The Zipp Vuka Extensions are constructed from carbon fiber and are available in the following options: Ski, Straight, Vuka Race, and Race Vuka Shift Zipp/SRAM R2C.

In triathlons and time trials, aerodynamics mean everything and even the smallest reductions, saving watts in drag, pay heavy dividends in increased speed. Aero savings can come in both body position, and the shape of the components themselves. Take your aero to the next level with the Zipp Vuka Integrated Aerobar. Made with Zipp's legendary attention to exacting details and impeccable carbon design, this bar is built to match with a standard 31. 8mm road stem and turn your cockpit into an air slicing TT missile.Zipp constructs the bars with the same Exogram technology found in the super-light and strong SRAM Red cranksets to minimize weight while maximizing stiffness and strength. The two things we want most in a cockpit are reliability and efficient power transfer and this bar has both in spades. The clamp hardware and riser kit ensure stable mounting and offers plenty of positions that you, or your bike fitting expert, can dial in to blend comfort and efficiency.This bar is compatible with standard road stems and, with a removable center cap placed in front of the stem, adds 5 percent stiffness to the bar and integrates seamlessly with the airfoil, closely mirroring single-piece bar and stem combinations. For aerodynamics, Zipp utilizes a truncated airfoil shape, somewhat akin to a shortened teardrop, that adheres to the UCI's 3:1 ratio requirement. The bar's Rapid Routing internal cable system further reduces drag by routing housing out of the wind with strategically placed exit ports for ease of installation.The Vuka Integrated Aerobar comes packaged with a base bar, extension clamps, armrest clamps, risers (two each of 5mm, 10mm, 25mm, and 50mm), Vuka armrest pads, Vuka armrest and steel hardware.
