Light Weight great for Hot weather
May 3, 2012
"This jersey is really designed for hot weather. It has lots of open mesh sections of fabric. The fabric is much like other summer sports jerseys, very light and very porous. The fit is generous as it allows you to wear your chest protector underneath if you choose. I typically wear an XL and sometimes find some manufacturers have European sizing that run tight. This is not the case on this jersey, it is a US XL."

Create your own poetry in motion with Kinetic racewear. Ultra-durable, 840D construction. Kevlar stitched leather heat shield panels on the inside of each leg for durability and heat resistance. Ergonomically shaped knee is generously contoured and designed to accomodate all types of knee braces and guards. Integrated Soft-Flex TPR protective badging is ventilated for increased air flow and cooling. Customizable leg cuff design low-profile stretch cuffs with removable elastic band. Internal pocket located inside the waistband. Adjustable waist belt for maximum fit and adjustability.
"If you are looking for a set of pants for HOT weather and a splash of color then you found the right pants. These pants are light weight yet built with typical double stitching and padding. The weight of the fabric is lighter than other pants I have tried. That plus built in venting should help with hot riding days. Fit of the pant seems great with the adjustment velcro on one side of the waist and a off center buckle on the other. This should eliminate buckle pinch for those of you like myself that don't have washboard abs. Stretch panels in the knee and thigh allow for a lot of room if you are looking to fit a knee brace.
If you are shy about color then you may want to choose the black and grey. The orange is as loud as some pro golfer pants. ;-)"

"I ride to the trail head on the street and wanted pants with pockets to put my reg and stuff in. I bought these pants for the two pockets and am now down to one. After 2 rides one of the pocket zippers would not zip shut. I forced it and the teeth of the zipper were not aligned popped open while shut. The zipper was completely broken on the pocket afterward. I'm now down to one pocket. That's the negative.
Positives: They fit great with the waist band velcro sizing. There is a good amount of range in the waist. the length of my 36 waist was about 32 inches. The over or in the boot option is fine in the boot with the extra material folding without pressure due to it being really thin fabric at that location of the pant. The front zippered venting works really well so cooler mornings followed by hot afternoons allow you to open the vents and enjoy what feels like shorts. Obviously the wide mesh will allow foreign matter in with the vents open.
4 Stars due to the pocket zipper being so hard to close leading to its failure. I would rub some candle wax on the pockets zippers to keep them lubed as they being water proof run really tight and I may have broken the zip due to forcing it. Other than that I really think these are a winner."

"I bought this jacket as a cold weather dual purpose street and trail riding jacket. I wanted something that was weather proof for the colder New England riding months that have unpredictable riding. The jacket fits large and allows for chest protection to be worn underneath without the need to go up one size. The largeness also allows for air circulation so heated moist air can escape. This can also allow cooler air in when you don't want it to. The cinch pulls at the bottom of the jacket help control this. The material is very heavy and strong and easily wards off the thorns of passing brush without ruining the fabric. This obviously makes it pack larger than most jackets so as a warm weather rain jacket it may be too heavy and bulky. The zippers are the weather sealing type and while they block the water they require more effort to open and close. I ride to trail heads on the street where the cooler temps require warmth yet once on the trail I easily overheat so off come the sleeves and into the built in tail pocket they go. The vents open up and the riding vest works great when the temps warm up. The internal pocket for holding my cell phone and other pockets are convenient yet small compared to some adventure styled jackets.
If you are looking for a convertible trail jacket for wet and cold conditions I recommend this jacket."
Sidi Crossfire SRS boots are a high-tech boot that will stand up to the use and abuse and continue to offer superior protection and comfort. It all starts with an understanding of what it takes to develop a boot that has the best form and function and the Sidi Crossfire SRS boots have nailed it. To start, the Crossfire SRS have an external Dual Flex system to allow for fluid movement front and back, but extremely rigid side to side movement. Sidi designed the Crossfire SRS boots realizing riders will be putting these boots through the stresses involved with competitive and aggressive riding by making the high wear parts to be replaceable. The soles on the Sidi Crossfire SRS are the simplest replacement system on the market. With a standard Phillips screw driver the sole comes off for easy replacement. Sidi offers multiple types of soles to match your needs. To continue raising the bar on safety, Sidi uses a composite insole on the Crossfire SRS boots which doesnt deteriorate like a steel shank can. Sidi also includes a removable arch support to match the riders foot type. No rider is the same, which is why Sidi designed the calf of the Crossfire SRS boots to adjust, making the boot fit better for increased protection and comfort. Sidi uses their own Technomicro on the Crossfire SRS boots. Technomicro is a composite microfiber material created from strands that are so fine, each one is less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. The cam-lock buckles on the Sidi Crossfire SRS are independent providing less resistance and better range of motion. The cam-lock buckles are attached to straps with position memory, making adjusting the strap length a one-time thing. The Crossfire SRS boots are lined with a Cambrelle material to keep your feet nice and cozy. Sidi took advantage of their high-tech design to eliminate the need for an inner booty on the Crossfire SRS boots. By eliminating the inner booty the Crossfire SRS boots are able to shave weight and keep a slender body for easier control and better feedback.
"I purchased these boots due to my experience with Sidi shoes/boots in road racing motorcycles and bicycles. The quality and attention to detail make these boots worth the price.
Sliding them on I like how the buckles stay shut yet are easy to open an close. The hinge system makes these boots break in very fast. In my first ride I forgot I had new boots on. One get off in a water crossing tested the boots ability to keep my foot dry. Another success! The rubber contact spots on the boots give them plenty of grip on the bike helping me on my early spring first ride.
I did have problems with the footbed being a bit too narrow. I took the boot to a local ski shop that specializes in boot fitting. They easily fixed the narrow width making these boots fit like slippers.
I can compare these boots to the new Fox Instinct's as I tried both on. The Fox Instinct boots have much more feel allowed through the boot. They do feel like a running shoe wrapped in protection. They feel a little wider than the Sidi's. I question how a boot that allows so much feel through it can protect. The Sidi Crossfire SRS feel like your feet are in a safe compared to the Fox Instinct's lighter softer feeling boot.
I picked the Sidi's due to their SRS system and history with me on lasting a long time. I'm very happy with them after my first all day ride that had me pushing the bike a few times and getting wet."
