We spent the week watching the tour – and what a tour it has been! When we weren’t watching we were doing our best to keep up with the new products being shown at the tour. We are already looking forward to getting an opportunity to review Specialized’s new Evade and Rudy Project’s Wing 57.
This week was also our opportunity to take a look at Betty Designs Cycling Kit and Easton Cyclings Aero 55. Inviscid Design launched their new Z4 on Wednesday and we made sure to cover all the details of this new BTA setup.
It’s the final week that we can remind you to head over to http://bit.ly/12nj1d9. 110% is giving away 10 sets of their OverDrive Compression Kit (of which we’re huge fans)! There is also a grand prize of more than $1K in summer running gear.
For all of our new followers—welcome! One of our favorite ways to showcase our readers is our Readers’ Rides album on Facebook. You can check it out at http://on.fb.me/12jEqE3. If you would like to have your bike featured in our album just tweet us at @AeroGeeks, Facebook message us, or email us at info@AeroGeeks.com.
This Week’s Posts
1. Giro Air Attack Shield
This may sound backwards but we are actually going to spend the last week of testing with the Air Attack riding a Bell Volt. We want to make sure that the cooling power of the Attack is all we have made it out to be, and the only way to do that is with another helmet.
2. Profile Design Aero HC System
We continue to get asked about the positioning of the computer on the Aero HC. We will make sure to cover this as part of our Final Thoughts article, but the short answer is that those with longer arms will be able to slam the Aero HC forward and get it into an optimum position. We did 70 miles with it this way this weekend and did not have a single issue.
3. WheelBuilder AeroJacket
Final thoughts are coming this week. Is this a product the defines affordable aero – make sure to stay tuned this week to find out.
4. Bontrager Hilo RXL Speed Dial
We published our first thoughts on the Speed Dial this week, make sure to check them out.
5. Specialized S-Works Trivent
Not surprising but these seem to be shoes built from the ground up to ride barefoot. We tried them with socks this past week but just could not get comftorable.
6. Cobb Cycling Gen 2 Saddle
Devon continues to ride the Gen 2 and is finding that now that he has found the correct positioning, the saddle just continues to impress. We may throw it on the road bike this week to get a better idea of the Gen 2’s split personality.
7. Cobb Cycling Max Saddle
Tracy’s thoughts on the Max are coming this week – stay tuned!
8. Cobb Cycling – Rapido Shorts
Both Tracy and Devon have been using the Rapidos for the past few weeks and are ready to share their thoughts – stay tuned!
9. XX2i Optics France1 Pro Racing Kit
100 miles with the France1 kit this week and we continue to be impressed. Yes this is a more budget oriented set of sunglasses, but you get an awful lot for the price. Expect to see our thoughts in about another week.
10. TriRig Omega
The Omega went on our Felt DA this past week and we could not be more excited. In just a few rides we are already seeing it’s combination of strong stopping power combined with an extreme ease of adjustability.
11. Reynolds 72/90 Aero
Last week we received a set of 72/90 Aero wheels from Reynolds. We are extremely familiar with Reynolds Strike wheelset and are looking to see how they up their game with the Aero.
