Kask Protone helmet, size M - weighs 283g on my scale (versus 240g for my couple season old Catlike Whisper Plus - not Mixino - size L)

Nice helmet, but I need a size L with my giant melon. Thought about Speci's new Prevail II, but I'm not a Speci-guy.

Considered a Mixino, but figured it was time for something completely different.

Salice 006 sunglasses (~28g/ea) are my favorite and have been for a bunch of years.

I like their mirror-like lenses and frameless design for unobstructed vision when I look over my shoulder.

Just bought a replacement pair to go with my red frame and white. Too much? Don't say it.

Pro err fashion weenie stuggle is real.

Not WeightWeenie but...adds to the comfort of a long ride.
My 16 year daughter was in hysterics watching me take this photo
Conversation went...so where do you get chaffing, on your bum crack? What, so you have to touch your bum to put it on?

Thanks @gearjunkie for recommending this product

I can't compare with other chamois creams as this is the only one I've used.
Cost about $35NZ for 500g....so far so good.

The cream is thick and feels neutral when applied.

This product is marketed as being different to other creams in as much as it helps the chamois adhere to your nether regions so there is no movement, which leads to friction and chaffing, between bum and pad. The shorts and contents then glide in beautiful unison on the saddle.

Other creams are designed to offer lubrication between arse & chamois, which may be an inherent problem as the cream dries out and loses it slick charm.

I've used it an a few 3 hour plus rides and it has reduced my discomfort, which usually hits at about 2 hours lasts a few minutes then returns periodically, I tend not to ride for more than 5 hours.
I've found the discomfort still happens at 2 hours but is for a shorter duration and returns less frequently.

Others may have had a different experience...?
