    scapin ivor review

    Italy’s Scapin Custom Carbon Ivor has been put through the paces and the results are very good. Refined finish work, a clean and easy build up with tube shapes and detail that push the boundaries of what a lot of people expect in “hand-made custom carbon”, all offered with a Lifetime Warranty from a company with decades in the business.

    SAMSUNG CSC

    Canada has seen a lot of great bike companies emerge over the past two decades, from small builders through to some of the best-known names in the sport. Add to this list the Aquila marquee, based out of Toronto. We took their brand-new Equipe-R for an extended riding and racing test, and found a bike that is light, responsive, and balanced.

    15-giro-savant-large

    Very few have the cycling helmet knowledge to rival Giro. Already known for high safety and performance levels, Giro have partnered with MIPS to add some slippery, concussion mitigating tech to the new Savant.

    15-park-prs-25

    Park Tool has been the industry standard for bike tools and stands for a very long time and for a darn good reason. You’re hard pressed to hit a shop without their stuff doing the daily duties. Their PRS-25 Team Issue stand is an impossible combination of shop-worthy clamp and great stability with the unlikely sidekick of light weight portability…

    SAMSUNG CSC

    Polar was the pioneer in portable heart rate monitors, and their systems have kept improving through the years. Their new V800 is the perfect storm of function, design, software, and usability. I spent the past three months using it intensively, and it is not coming off my wrist any time soon.

    proviz-360-large

    The Proviz Reflect 360 jacket uses a fabric that's as close as I’ve ever been to thinking something might be too visible at night… Oh, and the rest of the details that allow this swatch of material to be considered a jacket are not bad either… And we get their Nightrider Pack cover as well.

    rudyproject-wing57

    Billed as the world's fastest and most aerodynamic Aero-Tri helmet the Rudy Project Wing57 has a big reputation. Our racer in France, Chris Selden recently got his hands on one for this extended test.

    castelli-freeaeroracebibs-650

    Castelli's new Free Aero Race Bibshort has been redesigned from the bottom up, inside out, and top down, and back to front -  it's a brand new bibshort named after their best selling bibshort ever. Early Spring here at PEZ HQ means I've logged a few good rides in 'em and they've impressed enough to warrant a stand alone review.

    fizik-tape650

    The importance of using the correct tape is all too often overlooked. As the primary contact point between rider and bike, the hands on the bars are crucial for control, and the interface between the hands and the handlebar is determined by the characteristics of the tape.

    14-cannondale-SRAM-cx1-larg

    Cannondale’s Super X, SRAM’s CX1 group, American Classic’s Hurricane Disc wheels and Ergon CF3 post / SRX saddle all landed within a short period of time… Cue a mad scramble for tires, bar, stem and you wind up with an exceptionally smooth cross bike that removes any thoughts about shifting...

    14-sarto-energia-0

    Quick. Name the family-owned Italian manufacturer producing pro-race winning frames exclusively in Italy since the 1950’s. Colnago, Pinarello, De Rosa all probably come to mind but Sarto are the family (and brand) still exclusively producing in Italy for more than 50 years and I have their new custom Energia Disc.

    74th Lotto Six Days Vlaanderen  final

    Photo Special: Ed Hood was in Belgium for the Gent '6 Day' and the cyclo-cross in Koksijde, so he was given his orders from PEZ HQ to 'get photos of the bikes' and here are the best pics from the flatlands. Track and Cross, both very different, but the bikes are works of art in their own way.
