The Good: Look good and worked well for 12 weeks
The Bad: Fell apart after 12 weeks - approx 36hrs onlyOverall Review: Wow! got these pedals 12 weeks ago and one fell off. Yep, bearing crapped itself and the pedal actually fell off. I'm sure it would have been a pleasant experience if I was in mid flight, but luckily I was on the flat telling my mates how great they were.... What a joke these are and we all had to laugh... Top price, worst quality part I have bought in 15 years. Took back to shop who said water damaged!! What, so you can't ride with these if it's wet? Pedals had done less than 40hrs and although used in wet conditions, never was it raining or the pedals submerged... Look cool but anyone who can actually Read More »
The Good: Great colors and quality bar. I have the Fuchsia paint series on my wife's DH bike and it pops.
The Bad: The paint chips easily. The first one we received had a scratch. The 2nd one was good, but as we tightened the brakes/shifters it is easily scratches the pain. Make sure you have them in the right position before finally tightening. The first day on the lift, the bars got a bunch of chips and scratches.Overall Review: The look great and perform well. The paint is just not strong enough for DH riding. They will last the season, but most likely I will need to replace next season for cosmetic reasons. We call Chromag and they don't have any touch up paint and suggests to better protect the surface. We will most likely try to find a matching nail polish or automotive paint. If Chromag had a touch up paint, it would greatly help.
The Good: Great fit.
Stays in place and they barely move around.
Super comfortable on long rides.
The Bad: The hard shell layer is a bit too rigid for my liking for lots of pedallingOverall Review: I bought these pads and they are the best light weight knee pads I have ever owned. I pulled the hard shell layer out and I found it made them much more comfortable during long rides. Make sure to measure your legs to get the right size. My 661 and alpine stars pads are all l/xl but I only needed a large in these pads. I've worn these for many 3 hour rides and they are still comfortable time after time. I do tend to pull them down to my ankles on large grinding fire road climbs. The lack of straps is also great. I was a bit skeptical at first but after riding twice a day in Squamish for a week I had no issues with them Read More »
The Good: this gear is made of quality materials. great shoulder pads. I was super impressed by the feel and look of the product. the padding is really light and fits perfectly snug. having the padding removable for washing was the best part, as i like to keep my gear smelling fresh. nothing is worse than sitting next to the guy who smells like a bum camp...
The Bad: the chest pad was way to hot for me. the instant i put it on, i had sweat rolling down from my tits instantly. felt like i was wearing a fur from an arctic caribou across my chest. the spine was a bit better than the front, but not by a whole bunch. and this was on a 65 degree day at the local bike park. getting the shirt off after riding for 6 hours and having the thing dripping with sweat was almost impossible. i was so overheated i almost passed out trying to worm my way out of the thing. it fits tight like its suppose to and trying to remove it without just ripping it apart was a huge challenge. a buddy will be your best bet to get the thing off once its sticky and sweaty.. better be a good pal....
didnt seem to fit well with my atlas neck brace like it claimed. the brace would not sit normally like it did without wearing the shirt. price is a bit steep. but is worth is if it actually holds up for a few years.
The Good: Hard outer shell is on the money for shorts wearers. Fairly comfortable once worn-in. Top of knee protection. Doesn't slip down while pedalling and crashing (so far).
The Bad: Uncomfortable to begin with. A little loose around the top opening, and a little tight on the calf.Overall Review: I'm writing this review in response to 7idp's call for feedback on their products, so it is heavy on suggestions. I'll start out by saying that out of the three knee pads currently still operational in my collection, these are my most preferred - especially when wearing shorts. I also have the Race Face Flank d3o knee/shin - which have been relegated to long pants wearing shuttle/lift days only (after repeated heavy knee impacts/abrasions when they always catch the outer fabric and slide down on otb's wearing shorts), and the Troy Lee KG5450 - which the top elastic has become so loose that they fall down on any small Read More »
The Good: Great fit - Versatile padding - Very secure - Lightweight + Airy - Bombproof
The Bad: No flaws that I can findOverall Review: There really is nothing bad to write about these pads. The versatility is the highlight. Being able to remove or add the thicker padding/plastic cap and make them as lightweight or bomber as you want is simple and ideal. Makes it easy to wash too! And incredibly easy to fit in a small pack. The lack of any straps puts people off but I find they have a tendency to bunch up at the back of the knee, just above the calf, only a little but enough to feel like a strap holding them in place. You can see by the way the material is in the back this is built in to the design. It makes them very comfortable to ride in without Read More »
The Good: Amazing construction
Comfortable and relatively light
The Bad: Absolutely nothingOverall Review: After many positive experiences with Chromag products, I expected nothing less with the Lynx DT. The material used is extremely high quality and the decals looks great. The seat is very comfortable even for AM use and feels very solid. There isn't anything I can find wrong with this amazing product.
