Merry Christmas With SIDI Shot €389.00

The technology and quality behind the Sidi Shot have confirmed it as the top model in the Sidi road cycling collection, even in 2019.

Uppers produced with the special Techpro® microfibre and soles in carbon guarantee a shoe with the highest level of comfort and design.

The “flat” colors are also available for the top model in the mountain bike collection, the MTB Tiger Srs Matt Carbon.

Silca Tattico Bluetooth $120.00

There are other mini-pumps on the market that have a gauge on them but none like TATTICO Bluetooth. Rather than go the traditional route of adding a physical gauge, we partnered with technology giant Bluetooth and put a pressure sensor in the base of this mini-pump. The sensor is activated once it senses pressure then it transmits that data to an app on an Apple or Android device in real time. This innovative use of technology creates a mini-pump that’s just as accurate as most floor pumps.

Selle San Marco Shortfit Carbon FX Wide

The SHORTFIT saddle was created to meet the needs of the most demanding cyclists who, for certain types of training sessions or rides, rotate their bust a lot moving to a position close to the handlebars. The special ergonomic shape of this new saddle features reduced length and ensures proper support in the generous rear section and optimum pressure distribution in the front section.

The long central cutout (Open-Fit) guarantees all-day comfort and support on the whole length of the saddle. This feature improves the blood flow preventing numbness and provides relief from pressure on the perineum. Recommended for individuals with averagely high pelvic rotation and for women bikers.

Shortfit features the side profile of the seating surface with a central depression of more than 5 mm that is similar to a curved line. For this reason, it is listed as Waved saddle. Recommended for individuals with both flat back (retroverted pelvis) and accentuated lumbar arch (anteverted pelvis).

Rail: Carbon Waist – DNA

100%: Cadence Collection S2

100% newest collaboration partner, Cadence Collection, originally emerged in the streets of San Francisco, California, as a unique cycling-apparel brand. Cadence was conceived with the goal of creating pieces that could be multi function: both performing on a ride and also comfortable and stylish for everyday wear.

The same thought process gave birth to the 100% and Cadence Collection S2 sunglass. The ruby-tortoise frames adorn the high performance S2 optics, creating a sunglass equally comfortable hammering an early morning century or relaxing at a friend’s post-ride BBQ.

Key Features on S2:
S2’s laser-etched edging provides the look of a full frame in a rimless cylindrical shield, for 360o visibility and comfort. Other features include:
· Cylindrical shield offers unobstructed view
· 5.5 base ensures superior fit
· Hydroilo lens coating repels oil and water
· Ultra-grip rubber nose and temple tips
· HiPER replacement lens available

S2 Pricing: $185
