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 to quickly discover our complete Tech N Spec library, and if you have a question, email us at Content@PezCyclingNews.com

    interbike16-1-940

    New head gear from Bell, and Lazer. Smart Helmets from Lumos, Sena and Babaali. And sound from Domio. 2016 seems to be the year that smaller and more agile helmet manufacturers all decided it was time to bring cycling head gear into this century…

    eurobike16-velocite-venn507-940a

    PEZ sat down with Victor Major, CEO and the R & D director of Velocite Bikes, to learn more about his new Venn 507 carbon rim and CTL, or Continuous Tangent Layup…we were intrigued… Interesting choice of acronym considering nothing gets tangled up here, I assure you.

    eurobike16-sportful-940

    The name may not be so known in the US, but you've seen it on Alberto Contador for several seasons, and the technical clothing on display at the Sportful apparel booth was a showcase of the latest jackets, jerseys and bibshorts from the Italian brand.

    velocite16-syn940

    When I was asked by PEZ to write a review of the new Velocite Syn I was not particularly receptive to the idea, but not because I don’t like the bike. Because I do like it, in fact I very much like the bike, but the problem that I saw was how to write a review about a bike made by a company that sponsors you to ride their bikes?

    eurobike16-day5-940

    Campagnolo and Bianchi are two top Italian iconic component and bike manufacturers and so a visit to their Eurobike stands was a must. Erin Berard takes a look at the new Campagnolo Potenza Groupset and Zonda wheels. Then there is the beauty of the Bianchi Oltre XR4 CV and Aquila CV TT/Triathlon bikes to drool over.

    The R-EV1 jersey and bibshorts are the newest addition to Alé Bikewear's fast growing line of top quality cycling kit for the road. It's priced at the mid-range, but delivers to a higher level on design, fit and construction - here's a closer look.

    Montebelluna Italy is arguably the world capitol of outdoor shoe making. Northwave have been here for 23 years but the region has a centuries-old history of outdoor footwear design and manufacturing spanning skiing, hiking, climbing and cycling.

    The Eurobike 2016 show floor just keeps on giving, so let's get looking, but please keep the drool to yourselves... Here's the latest cycling apparel from Castelli, powermeters from Quarq, and an all new bike from Sandwich.

    eurobike16-day3-940

    After three full days at Eurobike, it’s hard to look at my current bike, accessories, tools, and clothing without thinking it just might be time for a few (just a few) upgrades... BBB helmets, glasses & pumps, WCup Nutrition, Wahoo's updated Kickr, and Giro shoes & helmets.

    eurobike16-day2-940

    PEZ reports from Day 2 of Eurobike 2016, and another jam-packed day checking out the latest cool gear from Ritchey Logic, Lezyne Engineered Design, Bell Helmets, and Konstructive Cycles.

    PEZ is live & in person from Friedrichshafen, Germany at the 25th Eurobike show, where 1,350 exhibitors from 49 countries fill 65,000 meters (13 halls) with a completely dizzying array of new products and services. Let's roll with American Classic, Sarto bikes, Rudy Project, and some well preserved mud at Scott Bikes.

    cipollini16-nk1k-940

    The newest thoroughbred in the Cipollini stable, the NK1K, arrived in understated shades of grey and silver. Without the splash of fluorescent color that helped define the brand out of the gate, does this signal a more mature model from Super Mario? Let’s go for a ride and find out.

    On the second rest day of the 2016 Tour de France Ed Hood caught up with Bill and Ellen of American Classic. Ed got the full alphabet of wheels from A to Z, plus the low-down on the wheels of top ten Tour stage finisher; Dan McLay and his Fortuneo Vital Concept team.

    ritchey16-streemll-940d

    The Ritchey Streem II carbon handlebar offers innovative shape, design features, and light weight. One of my favorite advantages of the carbon revolution in cycling has been the development of carbon handlebars - which has opened up endless shapes, sizes, designs, and stiffness characteristics that can simply not be had with good ol' aluminum.

    Win Detergent, specifically designed for performance synthetic fabrics, works very well in cutting the dirt, grime and oily residue that bactieria feed on to create that "synthetic clothing stink" that we all loath...

    rudyproject16-traylx940

    Rudy Project has been part of the top tier of cycling eyewear since the late 1980's when cool looking shades first appeared in the pro bunch. Lucky for us Rudy stayed there by maintaining top level tech to their huge line, like the newest release for road cyclists - the Tralyx.

    The Aero Race 5.1 jersey and Inferno bib shorts from Castelli offer light weight, high breathability, and form & fabrics designed to save real watts of energy... they're also damn well suited to a spin class. Here's why...

    Parlee Cycles build a beautiful, custom fabricated and finished tribute to the fastest family on two wheels and the race that is perhaps the most intense combination of speed, endurance, concentration and danger in the world.

    2016-Lazer-Z1-large

    We review the Lazer Z1 +LifeBEAM helmet, a cooperative effort from Lazer and LifeBEAM, two companies that make things for people that go much-much faster than a bicycle… Lazer are at home at 200+ MPH on moto helmets and LifeBEAM’s head gear additions travel around at speeds that start with the word “Mach”, which is fairly quick…

    shanghai16-speedx940

    Lee Rodgers took the weekend off from his usual Lowdowning on bike races and riders to have a look at the new bike offerings at the Shanghai Bike Show. When Lee visits one of these 'happenings' you can't expect a technical blow-by-blow break-down, but you will get the Lee style Lowdown.
