Polar M450 Cycling GPS Computer
Good news. Polar’s data platform FLOW automatically syncs with Strava as of last week! The Polar M450 is the little brother of their V650. Smaller and lighter to race with and syncs data wirelessly with Iphone. Connects with Bluetooth enabled power meters and provides the data set I utilise. Also has a cool automatic LED light if you get caught on the road on dusk without lights.
Nothing beats Japanese quality. I’m no chef but I even know this Tojiro blade means business slicing through post training oranges. Just watch the fingers! Gifted for use at this years Australian RedBull Athlete Summit Master Chef competition.
Terra Kiger 2
Kiger’s main purpose is a trail shoe. But these kicks are my current go to trainer for all running. Multipurpose enough for me to win a number of Ironman 70.3’s racing in them.
Besides lack of grip in the wet my only gripe is the original and best ‘Kiger v1’ is now impossible to find even with “I’m Feeling Lucky” google search. I stocked up on Kiger 2’s (pictured) but don’t get me started on the changes to the third incarnation. Why can’t Nike realise when they have a good thing?
Black Sheep Essentials
I’ve been given my fair share of close to unbearable team bib knicks over my time. **Disclaimer: I’ve never ridden in $$$$$ Assos bibs but if you don’t like the feeling of wearing a nappy riding then read on. Enter Black Sheep Cycling’s newly released essentials line. Subtle tags, no branding and the most comfortable chamois and fit I’ve ridden. Thumbs up.
RedBull 2 Pack Cap Carrier by New Era
Provides piece of mind when travelling with flat brims in luggage. This is New Era’s 2 pack version but for longer adventures also comes in a large carry that squeezes up to seven. For those who really dig their caps.
