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....

5.10 Impact Low Break-in

New rider here, first post. I'm looking to pick up some shoes more suitable to trail riding than my current beat-up cross trainers. I ordered 5.10 Impact Lows, no one sells them locally here. I sized up some since I have wide feet and these don't come in anything but medium. Even with ... Read More »

Calculating stem rise impact

I'm trying to figure out how to calculate the impact that stem rise and length have on a handlebar position, and I'm wondering if any one can help me with ensure I have the right math.

Pedals for Fiveten Impact Clipless?

I just picked up a pair of Fiveten Impact VXI clipless shoes. The shoes are stiff for pedaling, grippy climbing up rocks, and comfortable for walking. Everything I was looking for except... My XTR Trail pedals only contact the cleats. I tried an old pair of CB Mallets and they made so much con ... Read More »

Spring length impact?

I have a new Santa Cruz V10c and have just ordered a new spring for my Fox shock. The bike came with a 500x3.25 spring and I ordered a ti spring, which came as a 550x3.
