Schwalbe Nobby Nic Addix Speedgrip 29X2.25 /2.35


The Schwalbe Nobby Nic is the ideal all-purpose tire and has been a long-time favorite among trail riders with a need for speed. Perfect for aggressive XC courses but also right at home on an Enduro course, the Schwalbe Nobby Nic features a widely-spaced tall knob pattern to provide plenty of grip while maintaining relatively low rolling resistance. Built around the lightweight and flexible Racing Ralph casing, the Schwalbe Nobby Nic features a more aggressive tread pattern for better traction on fast and loose terrain.With the new Addix Speed compound, Schwalbe’s Nobby Nic Tires deliver unprecedented performance in multiple areas.


  • Addix Speed compound features a perfect combination of rolling speed, grip, durability, and damping
  • Snakeskin offers lasting durability and protection
  • Folding bead with tubeless capabilities
  • Widely-spaced tall knob pattern provide plenty of grip and low rolling resistance

ADDIX SPEED The compound for XC race specialists. It catapults Schwalbe XC tires into a new performance dimension.
ADDIX SPEEDGRIP The universal compound. It definitely has the widest range of use. Perfect for XC, AM and Trail: for the majority of EVO tires there’s a version with ADDIX Speedgrip! It replaces the previous PaceStar compound where a significant, though not the only difference, during extensive use is more mileage and a longer life.
ADDIX SOFT The compound that bridges many disciplines. It’s just as at home in the enduro and downhill world as it is in the demanding discipline of all-mountain and trail riding. It also impresses when used in combination with other ADDIX tires – more speed: Soft on the front, Speedgrip on the back. Or more damping: Ultra Soft on the front, Soft on the back.
ADDIX ULTRA SOFT The compound for hardcore use in enduro and downhill. Sensationally good damping has been further improved over the previous VertStar compound, while at the same time ADDIX Ultrasoft is suitable for all-weather use due to significantly improved low-temperature properties when it comes to grip and damping.

3T Ergonova Team Stealth Carbon Handlebar




This gives riders a color option to match the popular monochrome grey look. Finish is 3T Matte Black, with the logo and Ergonova Team stripe in Gloss Black. While the bar sets a standard of riding comfort appreciated by amateurs and pros alike. The top of the bar is egg-shaped in section the longer radius provides a wider top surface for the hands. The egg shape rolls through 180° at the bend into the forward extension, placing the palms naturally onto the brake hoods and ergonomic drops. The drops flare by 6°, so the width at the brake hoods is 16mm narrower than the bar size. Ergonova Team has constant-thickness carbon-fiber walls and fits most clip-ons.

This 3T version is their entry-level Orbis II C35 clincher wheelset in the range for rim-brakes. While the 25mm wide alloy rims with welded joints support fat, race-weight clincher tires at lower inflation pressures, for more grip and comfort.

3T Discus C35 Team Stealth Wheels




These 25mm wide carbon rims provide a 20% overall weight saving over their entry level Pro model, that’s also 32mm deep with a blunt profile for stable aerodynamic performance at typical angles to the wind. From this particular 3T range the Discus C35 falls inline as the mid-range setup.

Centerlock disc-brake hubs with 24 bladed spokes front and rear offer industry-standard fitment for quality disc-brake setups. The 3T linear+ system optimizes build quality and asymmetric rim drilling reduces difference in spoke tension between drive side and non-drive side.

The Discus hubs have a light-alloy oversize spindle with modular end-caps that can be easily swapped from quick-release to thru-axle as needed; rear width can run 135mm or 142mm to fit the latest CX and gravel-grinder thru-axle framesets. While the wide tire bed provides a really firm base to run the latest, race-weight fatter tires at lower pressures.

  • Quick Release: Alloy lever and nut, steel rod
  • Weight: 1.464 – 1.484kg (+/- 2%)

Linear+ Optimized Build

Linear+ system optimizes all-round build quality. Discus employ straight spokes that run directly from hub to nipple. Spoke ends locate perfectly square in the purpose-designed hubs; and at the nipple end, the holes are angled perfectly in line with the spoke.

Nipples are internal, so holes are no wider than needed to pass the spoke through. This benefits strength, appearance, and aerodynamics. Nipples are screwed on upside-down, bearing on the rim’s internal surface via a cup washer. This distributes the load evenly so spokes can safely be done up tighter.

Compared with traditional wheels built with J–bend spokes, linear+ have;

  • Better load distribution
  • Better spoke alignment
  • Less drag
  • Better durability

Asymmetric Rim

Spoke tensioning is more equal to either side, making a better-performing, more resilient setup with better lateral stiffness. Linear+ ensures that rim drillings are perfectly aligned to meet these demanding mechanical requirements.

Both the 58mm and 32mm rims have an asymmetric structure and double-angled spoke drillings, for a perfectly balanced setup. Additionally, the hubs have double-cross spokes on both sides. Opposite spokes on the same side are perpendicular to each another, so directly opposed. This equalizes spoke load under torque for better power transfer without spoke wind-up, a key benefit when braking is effected at the hub, as well as when accelerating.

Taken together, these measures result in;

  • Reduced dish
  • Reduced L-R spoke-tension difference
  • Greater lateral strength
  • Optimal torque transfer
  • Minimal spoke wind-up when braking and accelerating

discus c35 alloy hubs

Modular Hub Spindles

Discus hubs have a light-alloy, oversize spindle with modular end-caps. The modular end-caps allow you to easily change from quick-release to thru-axle, and back again. You can use your set on several bikes of different configurations:

  • Front: QR 100 mm or TA 15 x 100 mm
  • Rear: QR 135 mm; TA 135 x 12 mm; TA 142 x 12 mm

Advanced Carbon-Fibre Technology

Their mastery of design and manufacture means production of the most advanced rims in the business.

Discus rims are constructed with top-grade fiber, with proprietary resins custom-formulated for each product.

Manufacture involves high-accuracy lamination and high-pressure, low-temperature, long-cycle curing times. Production flow is traced from raw materials to finished product for end-to-end quality assurance.

As a result, C35 rims have;

  • Exceptional strength-to-weight ratio
  • Superb impact resistance
  • Extended service life

3T Ionic 25 Team Stealth Comfort Seatpost




This new innovative design features key details like the sophisticated and robust, exclusive DiffLock saddle clamp. It’s all here due to the placement the seat clamp assembly in line with the seatpost for zero setback. Thankfully the creative bike-parts design crew with 3T thought this through and developed the new Ionic 25 to be a more compact style design. Thus solving those bike fit issues that corollate to not only your seatpost, but your stem handlebar as well.

If your like many athletes seeking outright speed favor this more forward position on the bike. The Ionic 25 is ideal as some frame designers are also specifying a slacker seat tube so riders can set their bike up with an inline post, which is lighter than a setback post. The splined alloy DiffLock coupling is a highly-accurate method of setting saddle angle needing only lightweight clamping by side-mounted bolts. It is especially useful for fine adjustment of saddle setback, which can be done without impacting saddle angle.

They have also fabricated the post out of carbon fiber with a shot-peened, black-anodized finish along with a kick ass graphic design to keep it lighter weight, with the super cool modern looking stripe.

Also for the diameter size options, they provide the two most popular sizes of 27.2mm which I feel is ideal because it helps with a little extra compliance for super bumpy areas out there. While the more versatile Ionic 0 gets a second diameter of 31.6mm as well, with the three lengths of, 280, 350, 420mm.

AEFFECT FOR SALE PRICE $490.00 – 10% off


Race Face Aeffect 29in SL Wheelset



Aeffect SL 29in For Sale/CompetitiveCYCLIST



Wagon wheels have had their detractors from the beginning. “Too flexi,” “wander on climbs,” “don’t track right”—we’ve heard it all. But in the end, they’re just faster than their stunted counterparts, and when it comes to XC speed, fast is fun. Race Face’s Aeffect SL set embodies the speed-first ethos of twenty-niners in a hoop whose design balances width against weight, going a tad wider than traditional XC models without falling victim to the rim-width arms race currently gripping the enduro world.

That’s not to say the Affect rims are tiny, at 24mm, their internal width eclipses the standard external width of cross-country race model from just a few years ago. This Race Face setup will better accommodate slightly larger tires, allowing for higher air volume, lower PSI, increased traction, and an additional layer of cushion for sopping up trail chatter. Since they’re branded Aeffect, you can rest assured that they’re also tough as hell.

The 29in rims are laced to their own Trace hubs. The Trace model doesn’t quite have the lightning-strike engagement of the brand’s new Vault freehub, but that’s just indicative of their different recommended uses. Since it’s featured on an XC model, the Trace hub’s three pawls and 9.2-degree engagement are more than equal to the needs of endurance events and long periods spent at speed. The Vault’s faster engagement is nice if you’re muscling big-travel enduro sleds over stop-and-start rocky cruxes, but the Aeffect SL’s Trace hubs do the trick when low weight and high speed are the order of the day.

Castelli Senza 2 Cycling Jacket – Men’s

Castelli Senza 2 Cycling Jacket Mirage


Castelli Senza 2 Cycling Jacket Review

Senza is all due to you’re loathe to abandon your Perfetto jersey as fall winds down. Similar to the Perfetto’s clean silhouette and incredible ability to shield you from inclement weather while preserving the same freedom of movement as your favorite warm-weather jerseys is enough to make us yearn for cool weather just so we can wear it again. We can’t stop winter’s imminent arrival, but we can deliver the news they created a winter cycling jacket modeled after the Perfetto to see you through the colder months. Sharing the same streamlined silhouette and weather resistance as the Senza, and the Men’s 2 Jacket comes with equipped with a warmer construction to take you comfortably through the cooler winter months.


The 2 main differences between the Senza and the Perfetto, as we mentioned, is in fabric construction. Gore Windstopper X-Fast fabric anchors the jacket, providing resistance to wind, snow, and rain while you’re out on the roads, as well as jacket-level warmth when the temperature drops.



We’d compare the Senza to a softshell, but that would suggest less freedom of movement than it actually has. Breathable Thermoflex panels at the sides give the Senza its stretchy, adaptable shape, ready to follow you as you change positions in the saddle.


Shown above the Senza will easily keep both wheel and road spray at bay by the longer Senza extended back hem, while reflective accents throughout the jacket help you stand out to motorists on dim winter days.

  • Trade your Perfetto for the Senza in time for winter
  • Water- and wind-resistant fabric ideal for cold weather
  • Form-fitting silhouette closely contours the body
  • Extended rear hem protects against wheel spray
  • Three rear pockets provide space for ride fuel
  • Reflective accents enhance visibility to motorists

Castelli Espresso 4 Cycling Jacket Black


Castelli Espresso 4 Cycling Jacket Review

Espresso is key, as winter always arrives, thwarting our autumnal bliss with heavy grey clouds and temperatures that dip far too low for thermal jerseys alone. Around the office, this is the cue for most of us to take out the trainer and resign ourselves to a few months in the basement, but if you’re looking to gain a competitive Espresso edge for your spring season, while the Men’s 4 Jacket will help you do it, as now you can be braver than we are and stay outside.

castelli espresso 4 cycling jacket_mirage

4 stretch panels integrated throughout the body of the jacket keep it moving with you as you shift positions in the saddle, and zippered ventilation openings allow you to add airflow on interval days. Also cut in a jacket silhouette that’s kind for a season of rich holiday meals and hearty food, it was crafted for miles that won’t always feel pleasant. They focused on equipping you to handle frigid temps and mixed precipitation, constructing the jacket with Gore’s venerable Windstopper X-Fast fabric to provide wind and water resistance for hours at a time.

castelli espresso 4_ruby_red

A host of other innovative touches on the Espresso serve to enhance comfort on the bike, especially during a season filled with long, low-intensity base mile efforts. Their CrossWrap wrist closures keep the Espresso  arm cuffs lying flat as you grip the bars, while a double-layered collar seals out especially aggressive gusts. The Espresso zippered vents not only help you stay cool, but serve as extra space to stash ride fuel or cash for the coffee shop, and they work with the three rear and zippered chest pocket to provide you with ample storage space. Finally for the Espresso, is reflective piping along the jacket’s waist enhances your visibility to motorists during winter’s limited daylight hours.

Giordana Sosta Men’s Winter Cycling Protection

Giordana Sosta Shell Winter Jacket Review


Sale Price $311.96 $389.95 20% Off




Sosta designers took inspiration from the Italian word for “pause” when creating its Men’s Sosta Winter Shell, thinking about the times we choose to ride for the sake of riding, rather than for strict splits and goal paces. That type of riding often happens more in the off-season, which is when we’re finished with training schedules and weekend races.


So the Giordana crew know all to well, the rain and wind that accompany the off-season, while exactly the conditions they developed the Sosta to handle. The Sosta’s three-layer polyester/spandex shell comes coated in a water-repellent DWR coating, which blocks rain and strong gusts. Although still allowing the Sosta to remain ample breathable as you warm up.

giordana sosta mens-black


Underneath its efficient shell, the Sosta comes with a merino wool lining, responsible for both insulating and using its natural ability to regulate temperature to keep you dry throughout your ride. Whether you pair the Sosta with a baselayer or thermal jersey, it will consistently ferry moisture to its surface to evaporate so you don’t end up cold and clammy after a tough climb to a gusty summit. Reflective accents help you stand out on dim, late fall roads, and three rear pockets are complemented by a zippered individual pocket to hang onto ride snacks and a view-capturing smartphone. As this is a more relaxed shell, they tailored the Sosta to be an easy layering piece, without giving it a hint of sloppiness. Its slim fit matches an equally clean style we’re unsurprised, but still thrilled to see from the Italian firm.

De Marchi Divisionism Mens Jersey

De Marchi Divisionism Mens Jersey pink

Divisionism Jersey gets it done…


De Marchi sure as hell knows how to craft a garment that mixes classic Italian style with the kind of substantial construction that will see us through countless training rides. While we can’t hope to ever look quite as urbane as Coppi in his mid-century heyday, sans helmet and sipping an espresso in the saddle, De Marchi’s Divisionism gives us hope that we can come close to that division.

De Marchi Divisionism Mens Jersey red

Elegant polka dots and well-placed stripes in classic cycling hues anchor the Divisionism on the platform of stretchy, soft polyester. De Marchi frequently chooses one sumptuous fabric to use throughout a piece rather than crafting each panel out of a different proprietary material, and it trusts this proven construction with the Divisionism. The summer-weight polyester adeptly draws moisture away from your skin as you sweat on sunny days, and a full-length zipper gives you the option to shed extra heat on tough climbs. Clean, subtle cuffs hold the Divisionism sleeve hems in place, while three rear pockets at the back give you space to subtly stash a few CO2 tubes and cash for a Coppi-inspired espresso at the end of your favorite loop.

M5 Uomo Boa Review

The Fizik M5 carries over the same high performance professional level as its Fizik M3 Boa older brother, except it strategically applies the best materials in all the right places for a fraction of the M3 cost. For instance the M5 upper is equipped with a combination of their Microtex Nylon Mesh material and anti-scratch leather, for high comfort and durability. Comfort is further optimized by the Cycling Insole which also reduces weight. The Nylon Carbon reinforced outsole also keeps weight minimal while providing a stiff platform for superior power transfer and acceleration. The M5, features their BIP1 closure system which employs a durable lace and a retention dial. The dial system offers more points of engagement that allow an overall more precise retention and fit. Need we mention the M5 is handmade in Italy?

Performance Bike is no stranger to collaborations..

price: $1698 save 10% weight: 1575 grams

It’s very similar in shape to the Firecrest 303, but without the exact Firecrest profile and without the dimpled surface. Those are laced to DT Swiss 350 straight pull hubs using Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes and come with Zipp skewers. Retail is $1,899 (on sale as of this post for $1,399). Pics and more below.

De Marchi Men’s Corsa Evolution Jersey

De Marchi Corsa Evolution Jersey grey men's




price: $111.00 save 20%


Known for classy Italian style and impeccable quality, the Men’s De Marchi Corsa continues that tradition with muted yet modern flair. Made from a soft multifilament fabric chosen for its airy composition and low weight, the Corsa breathes more efficiently than most nylon/Lycra blends and rapidly transfers moisture away from your skin. In addition to its lightweight and thermo-regulating properties, the Corsa fabric also stretches to wrap and support your upper body and arm muscles while in the cycling position.

De Marchi Corsa Evo Jersey black

The Corsa’s anatomical fit was made possible using their Contour Corsa Fit design as a means to stabilize it while in the cycling position. This is accomplished using pre-shaped fabric panels that closely follow the body while in motion.

De Marchi Corsa Evolution Jersey mens blue


The Corsa is finished with a full-length front zipper for extra ventilation control, three rear-panel pockets to tote along ride necessities, and reflective elements to increase visibility to other road users in low-light conditions.

De Marchi Men’s Sportwool Ibrida Jersey

De Marchi Men's Sportwool Ibrida Jersey




price: $119 save 20%


Brisk early morning rides often call for a bit more fabric, as the De Marchi Men’s Sportwool Jersey is that ideal weight. Made from a soft, comfortable blend of Sportwool, Merino, and nylon microfiber, this top cuts a classic profile as a standalone or layered under a vest or jacket on chillier days.

The Sportwool sits on the more accommodating end of their Contour Fit design spectrum, so it accommodates heavier base layers and body types that don’t adhere to the emaciated climber standard. This is accomplished using pre-shaped Sportwool fabric panels that closely follow the body while in motion without fitting like a painted-on race top. To put the fit in brand-specific perspective, the Sportwool tends to fit about one size larger than their slimmer Leggera line.

The Sportwool is finished with a full-length front zipper for extra ventilation control, three open rear-panel pockets, an additional zippered pocket, and reflective elements to increase visibility to other road users in low-light conditions.

De Marchi Men’s 1972 Holland Jersey

De Marchi Men's 1972 Holland Jersey


De Marchi Classic Men’s Style

price: $132 save 25%


In 1972, the Dutchman Kuiper shocked the world by winning the gold medal in the Munich summer games. Always one to embrace tradition, created the De Marchi 1972 Men’s Cycling Jersey to honor Kuiper’s win and bring a little bit of vintage style back with typical Italian class.

Fittingly, the 1972 embraced wool and its former place as the de facto fabric of cycling for the construction, using a blend of fine-gauge merino wool and synthetic fibers rather than the purely synthetic fabrics we depend upon now. Allowing the 1972 to be lightweight and efficient at managing body temperature, merino easily demonstrates that it still holds ample value today, even in the face of newer, cheaper replacements. Merino is also naturally resistant to odors on the 1972, so you’ll smell fresh as a Dutch tulip — or at least not offensive — when you stop for a jenever and a stroopwafel post-ride.

The 1972, as their known to do, also adds thoughtful touches to set it apart from the rest of the retro pack. These include three slim rear pockets and the flag-inspired pattern at the sleeves, collar, and torso to let everyone know that your cycling affections lie with the land of windmills and Gouda.

Pike RCT3 29+ Boost 160 Fork


Before now RockShox’s flagship enduro model topped out at either 27.5″+ or regular wagon wheels. But now Rockshox have added another 2016 option for those looking for even bigger rubber. The new Rockshox Pike will be available in the top of the line model shown here, and also in the Pike RC and even their more affordable Yari RC. That means all three Pike models levels come in both 27+ and the combined 29-plus versions. Check out details and availability below.

Rockshox Pike RCT3 29+ Boost Fork

While the Pike’s have been available with standard 100mm spacing for 26″ & 27.5″ wheels, these new versions are now Boost only with 110mm spacing, all with 15mm Maxle thru-axles. The new bigger 29+ gets bigger flexibility than the smaller wheeled forks and can be set for 120/130/140/150/160mm travel.

The Yari offers the look, 35mm uppers, and proven tech of the Pike, just with less adjustability and standard alloy lowers to keep the price down. And now it adds the same Boost option for fat tire trail riders.

Availability for the Pike & Yari is essentially said to be within the next month, as they are making their way now through distribution channels. Pricing for the premier RCT3 should be $1110/1160€, with no more details yet on the Yari at the moment.

With Santini’s Zero Impact manufacturing philosophy behind its Men’s CoolZero, Santini’s making an effort to protect what we enjoy so passionately while ensuring that your passage through it is as fast and comfortable as possible, and cool as well.

The Santini synthetic materials on the Jersey incorporate recycled polymers that are harvested and repurposed with an low-energy production process.

Campagnolo Shamal Ultra C17 Alloy Road Wheels Updated

Campagnolo Shamal Ultra-C17 wheelset



Shamal clinchers have ruled the pre-built wheel market for for what seems like ions ago, being the first wheels with all components from one manufacturer, and they’d been some of the first to incorporate several unique solutions like different front and ream rim heights, ceramic bearings, oversized aluminium bladed spokes, and more. But while the recent tubular versions had a solid wide rim bed that worked well with wider modern tires, the clincher versions had remained narrow. Now that has changed with the new Campagnolo Shamal Ultra’s that bring the wheels in line with riders wanting a wider tire profile.

The new Shamal Ultra C17 remain unchanged in most ways versus the previous generation. They keep the same radial 16 spoke front, and G3 21 spoke rear, and carry over the same oversized alloy flange & carbon bodied hubs as the Shamal tubulars that we reviewed last year. They also keep the same style of machined rim that trims weight between spokes while reinforcing the spoke connection. The new wheels do get an upgrade in the micro-adjustable bearing preload lockring that trickles down from the Bora wheel line.

Campagnolo Shamal Ultra C17 aluminum tubeless-road wheels

But the big update comes in the move to the C17 standard for a 17mm internal width. Much like the new Mavic carbon clinchers we just saw, Campy thinks that C17 offers the best balance of providing a stable platform for the recent crop of 25-28mm tires. In fact testing them back to back, Campagnolo says that with the same tires the new wheels are even more aero in either tire width than their predecessors.

The new Shamal Ultra C17s will be available this spring as either a clincher-only, or a tubeless compatible 2-Way Fit wheelset. The clincher version has a claimed weight of 1435g for the pair, while 2-Way Fit takes them up to 1515g.

Merrell All Out Charge Trail Running Shoes

was $119.00 now $58.00

From key reviews there’s nothing really gimmicky about the All Out Charge – it’s not MAX cushion, or a barefoot shoe, it just shows up ready to work. This Merrell model is perfect for everyday training that can tackle most jobs you can throw it’s way. One could be comfortable wearing this shoe up to about 50K, though possibly longer as well.


Merrell All Out Charge Trail Running Shoe spicy orange

With 5mm lugs and a varying “Select-Grip” tread pattern, the All Out Charge provided impressive traction in most running conditions. Given the season, I was able to run the shoe in snow and mud – in addition to the usual rocky trails – and they performed very well. We even spent a few miles on the the treadmill and the ride was smooth and firm there as well.

The Toe Box on the All Out Charge is well rounded and fairly generous. It’s not the widest out there, but the piggys were comfortable and didn’t want for space up front. It locks the heel in solid, giving a comfortable, snug fit everywhere else, also preventing your foot from sliding around inside the shoe.

Also here’s the Purchase Info for the Men’s setup at setup.



  • Merrill HyperWrap 360 Degrees Fit System
  • Mesh upper
  • All Out Charge closure is lacing.
