PezCyclingNews’ Tech N Spec section is our take on cycling gear reviews & bicycle equipment technology. We use the gear we test, and test the gear we use, sometimes for months. Over the last 12 years, we’ve reviewed hundreds of products, and have a pretty good understanding of how & why something works the way it does. Or we know who to call to find out. Use our Search, Tags, or navigation arrows (and the Randomizer) to quickly find your way through our compete Tech N Spec library, and if you have a question, email us at Content@PezCyclingNews.com

    saris_glow5_650

    There are a lot of car racks out there, but the Solo Glow from Saris is unique in so many ways. The rack does what it says on the label; it carries one bike and it glows but as PEZ man Jordan Cheyne found out in this extensive test there's a lot more to it than just its hip design.

    14-silca-eolo-large

    Silca have been the benchmark inflation company for decades. Starting in 1917, they’ve made pumps and tools that have been in use for what seems to be the entire time… How many companies in cycling have been around long enough that you don’t remember “back when they started”? PEZ recently checked out their latest instant classic - the Eolo III Co2 Inflation Head.

    cipollini-rb1-650

    While Mario Cipollini’s bicycle brand has been proving itself at the ProTour level of racing for a few years now, they've only recently taken aim at the US market by signing Florida-based Speedbrands LLC as the new US distributor – who offered us a ride on Team Farnese Vino’s Francesco Chicchi’s personal 2013 race bike – the RB1000.

    14-lake-cx300-large

    The new CX300 shoe by Lake Cycling keeps up the product line changes and advances. It may be the perfect warm weather addition as temps (at least in Arizona) are already in the 90’s, and shoe ventilation goes from marketing pitch line to an absolute concern.

    bellwether14-optime650a

    If you haven't noticed, Bellwether Clothing is back, and their newest top-line cycling jersey & bibshorts are worth noticing. A resurgence in their R&D raised our eyebrows a couple years back and after some solid miles in their Optime kit, we remain impressed.

    14-ott-large

    The 2014 Sea Otter classic was another mix of good food, good riding, great gear and better than predicted weather. We snapped a few new bits from companies small & large… Ergon & Velo saddles, Xpedo pedals, Lake shoes, Lezyne tools, Nuun energy drinks, Rolf Prima wheels, and bikes from Divo and Scapin.

    14-velovie-500-large

    VeloVie’s Vitesse 500 checks a lot of race bike boxes: full carbon construct right down to the drops (frame and fork), brand name raw materials, uni-weave exposed skin, and full top line group and wheels. Here's a closer look...

    LookKeoBlade650

    Product Review: A lighter, stronger pedal is what LOOK claimed to have created with the Look Keo Blade 2 - the same pedal used by almost half the professional peloton this year. I quizzed the designer at Look France on the new features and then took them out for a tough 3 month test.

    defeet-assos-650

    As winter hangs on across much of the 49th parallel, DeFeet's Thermeator socks and Assos' Skinfoil Ls baselayer make good sense for a lot of rides ahead. I've had both on test through the winter, so here's my long term review...

    The market for indoor cycling training systems is constantly increasing and evolving, and while most non-trackies are opting for fixed-mount trainers, TruTrainer has reconverted me to the fun of rollers with their top-end quality and ride feel. Pez reviews TruTrainer's Premium cycling rollers.
