Product Review: Champion System CS Razor Lite Jersey and Bib Short

Upon my first cycling season using the Champion System gear I was very surprised. I always saw a lot of competitor teams using the gear but had never tried it on myself. When I met up with my SoCalCycling.com Team Manager Frank Sarate for the first time to get my proper fitting kits for the beginning of the season, it was then that I was already very excited to use the Champion System gear. Not only was it comfortable, lightweight, and breathable,but […]

Product Review: Ekoi 999 Helmet

The new 2012 Ekoi 999 cycling helmet has hit the cycling scene with full force. One of many things I love about this helmet is the light weight technology of 220 grams.

Another great feature is that the Ekoi 999 offers is its […]

Product Review: 2012 Cannondale EVO

The SuperSix Hi-Mod has been Cannondale’s flagship bike for several years. However, the engineers at Cannondale worked on the EVO project for some time and have truly come out with the perfect ride. After riding and racing the SuperSix Hi-Mod, which was awesome, I didn’t think they could make the ride of the EVO that much better. But, when you take the technology that is used on the CAAD10 and all of the Cannondale lines that incorporate their carbon technology, […]
