Mavic Comete Ultimate Helmet - black (non mips version)
Image
Honestly the best helmet I have ever had, ventilation seems nice, it is super light, and supposedly pretty aero. The main reason I bought it though was because of its fit, I have a smaller/narrower head shape and most helmets just give that mushroom head look and dont feel comfortable, not this one, I was blown away by its fit and comfort. :D well worth the cost, barely even feels like you are wearing a helmet.

I am thinking about replacing my techlaces with these. Let us know how they work for you.

At this weight you can buy a pair of Gaerne (if the fit is fine for you). Made in Italy and much better quality than Giro. They will not fall apart.

Which gaerne are that light? They must be more like 350

100km in and loving them. Very comfortable (as were the TechLace), don't feel heavy like my Sworks7s and very stiff sole.

Fully recommend :thumbup:

Gaerne? lol In terms of aesthetics these are miles ahead. Not to mention quality of manufacturing, durability etc.

IMHO, Gaerne and Sidi are more robust/sturdier...

Totally :)

The jersey in your link is different to the ones I purchased. The arms on my Spexcel jerseys are a mesh / aero material, blatant copy of Rapha Pro Team Aero jersey.

Not tried the bibs, so please post a review when you get them / have ridden in them.

Cheers

SPEXCEL 2018 NEW Bright Orange Top Quality Short sleeve cycling jersey pro team aero cut with Newest Seamless process road mtb. This particular solid color series . Look what I found on AliExpress
http://s.aliexpress.com/2MJr2aUz
The cargo bibs is not so good . Not so flexible & thread easily broken . However it’s pretty cheap & useable
These two jerseys (white and red):

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3300026 ... 6b23OX2U44

And these bibs finally arrived:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3288006 ... 7416wHI7a6

I have done about 100 km in them. So far so good. Chamois/padding on these Spexcel long travel bibs is excellent, no complaints there.

It doesn't have any sticker/marking where it says from what material are made of, I have some Lidl jerseys, you can buy Vermarc Quick-Step jerseys there, they are 80% polyamide, 20% elastane, so that is like Castelli/Santini, etc., and you can feel that under your fingers, these Spexcel feel somewhat different, or should I say cheaper?

But for that price, really no complaints so far, and I really like chamois/padding, feel is similar to Castelli Progetto X2 Air Seamless padding or Santini C3 padding...

And something more from AliExpress:

Not 16g like advertised:

Both 19 grams, but that is OK.

I'm now removing logos, I want it all in black :)
