Whoops – we are a little late with the Week in Review this week. After watching Sarah Haskins and Michael Raelert take the victories at Ironman Miami 70.3 we hung around to watch the age groupers fight off tough conditions to cross the finish line. And after that we called it a day. Even the AeroGeeks need a break once in a while.
With Miami 70.3 coming we knew going in that last week would be a hectic week here at AeroGeeks HQ. We shared our reviews of the Bontrager Ballista and Coeur Sports tri top, tri shorts, and sports bra. We also wrapped up our coverage of Intebike and then kicked off Miami 70.3 week. Be sure to stay tuned all this week for our Miami 70.3 coverage where we check out the Pro rack, take a closer look at Ventum and watched the finishers cross the line.

You can check out our entire collection 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, get us on Instagram, or email us at info@AeroGeeks.com.
Speedplay Adds Walkable Cleats for Zero and Ultra Light Action Pedal Systems
We first saw Speedplays walkable cleats when we shared the Zero Aero system just before Interbike. Meant to both improve traction while walking and provide an aero gain- the walkable cleats were a big win for Speedplay owners. This week Speedplay has announced that when retailers order Speedplay Zero and Ultra Light ActionPedal Systems, they will now be able to choose pedal systems with either the company’s walkable cleats or standard cleats.
SOSNRS Di2 Mounts
For those looking for a better way to mount their Di2 junction boxes, SOSNRS has your answer. SOSNRS has introduced a line of 3D printed Di2 mounts for standard stems, the Felt IA, QR PR6 and P5.
We have not gotten the chance to play with one yet, but anything that gives us a little more security than double sided tape AND cleans up our bike is something the AeroGeeks are going to take a look at. Head on over to http://www.sosnrs.com/products to find out more.
Blaze Laserlight now Available in North America
We are always looking for the products that make us safer when on the road and the Blaze Laserlight looks to do just that. The Blaze works by projecting an image of a bike in front of the bicycle to make cyclists visible when otherwise invisible. Having spent a year analyzing cycling accident reports, the standout piece of data that the Blaze team focused on was that 79% of cyclists involved in an accident were travelling straight ahead when another vehicle maneuvered into them.
The Blaze Laserlight is not just the laser, it is also a white super-bright LED front light that works in flashing and constant modes and at two brightness levels (100 and 300 lumen). The laser itself is a green laser because the human eye is most receptive to light of that wavelength (530nm). And thanks to the unique charging contacts, the Laserlight is fully sealed and waterproof. You could submerge one in up to 1m of water!
Launched via Kickstarter the Blaze Laserlight is available for direct purchase online at blaze.cc as well as select retailers.
