Cassette. Finally saw the group in-person on Sunday. It had a power meter.

Carnac Aura helmet:

Very nice helmet (IMHO), with normal price tag...

They have other helmets, Carnac Notus is a copy of Specialized Evade:

https://thefairlyaveragecyclist.wordpress.com/2018/09/

Carnac Kronus Time Trial Helmet also had a good review:

https://road.cc/content/review/229107-c ... ial-helmet

etc...

One more interesting thing that I have read:
I had good fun sourcing those mountainbike helmets on one of my last trips to China for Planet X.

We had found the factory at a show and went to visit to see what their manufacturing processes were like.

The showroom with all the different models in was rammed, and the couple we chose we were told were good. “Bell also choose this model” said the salesperson.

I'm not surprised, maybe it's like with TV panels, 90% of them are from the same factory...

I am always tempted to get one to see what it is all about. Please tell us about its weight, fit and quality of pads and straps after you wear it on a few rides.

Just bought a Silca EOLO pocket bag, to replace an older bag (different manufacturer) I've had for 6 years. I hope this one lasts just as long.

Madone 5, Cobia. I own a lot of Treks.

Just picked up a nice shiny new power meter, just waiting for the frame it's going on to arrive now.
