Strengths:    High quality workmanship, perfect fit, cool (despite the thermoplastic plates), eassy to wear. Stays on place!

Weaknesses:    You've got to follow exaclty the given directions for washing.

Bottom Line:   
This product is just perfect. You forget that you'r wearing armour plates - very comfty.
This works as an underwear (a bit kinky to go ridding only with those), so wear them inside your shorts.
Already test it on a crash, my right leg hit a pointy rock hidden under a bush. The armour worked perfectly, i didn;t ven feel the impact.
Get-it! (i guess this product can even cover a XC racer, as most of their crashes involve slidding on the side on gravel).
A note about Dainese dealer in Greece.
Better check with a online shop! Here the're "offering" those shorts for..130Euros, while i got them from Germany form HiBike for 60! (70 with the posting). If they want to survive they'de better learn....

does hub engagement impact clutch derailleur effectiveness?

I've currently got a 1x9 drivetrain. SRAM X.9 short cage, MRP lopes chain guide, Hope Pro 2 EVO rear hub. It appears to me the derailleur mainly controls the tension on the bottom section of chain. The top section seems to be fairly isolated from the derailleur. Chain play up top is dictated b ... Read More »

Danny Macaskill Freeride Shoes vs impact lows

Anyone use both? I had the old freerides but didn't like them much due to the lack of stiffness in sole, and exposed toe box and flimsy construction. Apparently these were addressed in the macaskills?? I have the impact highs but would like to try something a little less burly without giving up too ... Read More »

Localized swelling at impact site (hip) appeared week later...

First off, I do have an appointment with a physician in a week (earliest available), but wondered if someone could proffer an explanation for my issue in the meantime. I crashed hard in a race two weeks ago, smashing down on my hip and shoulder. Sat stunned for a minute, then got up and rode a lap ... Read More »

Screech on Impact

I'm riding a mostly stock stock 2012 Epic Expert Evo R with a 2013 carbon SL wheelset. When I get some air, not big air, just the kind of jumps you'll find on an XC trail, upon landing there is a screeching sound sometimes. I doubt that it would be from the fork. It doesn't really sound like the b ... Read More »

Shoes like Impact 510 but with thinner soles?

Hi, I have a pair of Impact 510 shoes. I love the traction and stiff feel. Was wondering if anyone makes a similar shoe, traction wise, but with a smaller/thinner sole? The reason I ask is that I feel too high up on the pedal and feel that it makes me top heavy and uneasy. I used to ride in a ... Read More »
