Submitted by Mark a Weekend Warrior from Michigan

Date Reviewed: August 18, 2000

Strengths:    Good looks, good cushy palm padding, terrycloth sweat pad on back of hand. Breathes well for a heavy duty glove.

Weaknesses:    Split the right hand index finger seam 1/2" the first time I used them. It never split any further, even after about 1000 trail miles and many washings.

Bottom Line:   
Good durable gloves have stood up to a full season of use and many amny washes. The padding in the palm is really nice. Overall, seems to be a well built glove, built with quality materials.

Date Reviewed: April 18, 2000

Strengths:    Price, comfort, looks.

Weaknesses:    None that I know of

Bottom Line:   
I was using these for about a month before I lost my trek. No complaints. I bought them because my trek had gel/big molded rubber grips on it. The gloves made a big difference, and Im looking forward to using them with my next bike that doesnt have such annoying grips. They look alright and keep my hands cool. 15$ at sport chalet too, not bad.

cold, easy to get wet. rip easy.


Bottom Line:   
if you live in Canada or a wet area DON'T buy these shoes. they are only good in hot dry places. when riding the water will soke right through and you will be cold.

Submitted by Jeff J. a Weekend Warrior from Castaic, California

Date Reviewed: July 21, 1999

Strengths:    
Great fit for people with feet like a sasquatch (lots of room in the toebox)
Overall snug fit due to additional velcro strap
Easy on and off
Feet don't sweat too much like my old Airwalks


Weaknesses:    
Strap on right shoe is about an inch and a half longer than the right one
One of the lace loops came loose (threads broke)


Bottom Line:   
The shoes fit me great. I'm a size 14 and I have a lot of width in the toe area, so these fit great. I will have the lace loop repaired and the one strap shortened at which time I will be defecating in the tall cotton. I really do like the shoe and will buy them again, but they could tighten the quality control a bit. Very reasonably priced ($79.00) @ Supergo. Good shoe for Big Fellas with big feet! Four Flaming Feces for these puppies.

Date Reviewed: May 8, 1999

Strengths:    
Great fitting, very comfortable shoe.


Bottom Line:   
If you are over six feet tall you know how hard it is to find a good fitting shoe. I tried many brands until I found the Axo. It has a roomy toe box, but not so big as to have your foot swimming around in it like the Euro rockhopper. The sole is just stiff enough
to have good power transfer with enough flex to run in. This is a great shoe for the money.

Date Reviewed: April 24, 1999

Strengths:    
This glove is very thin and light. It is breatheable, cheap, and it covers all of your thumb and most of your forefinger.


Weaknesses:    
I little stingy on the pads, but at least its not so bulky you cant move or get your hand stuck in your pocket


Bottom Line:   
A good, cheap glove. It is high quality, and because it is thicker than the lycra stuff, it will keep you warmer, but because it has proper ventilation, will keep you cool. It absorbs sweat well.

Date Reviewed: January 7, 1999

Bottom Line:   


I love these shoes. Very comfortable and stylish with hard soles for small pedels. I use them in conjunction with my Time ATAC pedles which are incidently fantastic. The cleat portion is very generious accomidating a wide aray of spd and clipless cleats. I say 90% of winning involves the shoes, the rest is how many powerbars you can suck down.
A great product form AXOFIVE FLAMING PIECES OF CRAP
