Specialized S-Works Power

Well it's certainly not cheap, but it's absolutely brilliant. Soft but firm, comfortable almost like suspension. No run in time required, put it on rode three 100km days in a row and absolutely no issues. Endurance, sprints and hills all no trouble.

Is it worth the spend - well i would not like to have to justify needing to buy it over others but that said i am loving the feel of the saddle.

ION K-Pact Select Knee/Skin MTB Pads my take!

Straight out of the bag these pads were comfortable i wore them in the house for about 3 hours before i even rode and they were comfy!
1st ride at my local was great they were great on the climb top the top and i felt super protected when descending,

The sizing is pretty spot on for me i am a large guy and the sizing chart was correct to my size.

The only cons for and these are both no really a problem
1. They get warm but not outrageously so
2. They are expensive , but sometimes you get what you pay for and so far these are the best Knee pad i have worn

I will buy these again and also would buy from Drift Bikes too! they were easy to deal with and were very prompt with my order!

Specialized S-Works McLaren Tarmac

Posted on
mclaren-sworks-tarmac1 The S-Works McLaren Tarmac is more than just a bike, it’s a partnership in seamless technical collaboration. It’s a tailored experience dedicated to the process of perfection. Developed exclusively with McLaren, no detail has gone untouched. The new Rider-First Engineered Tarmac has created a new standard in bicycle development. Building upon that platform, Specialized and McLaren teamed up to raise the bar of complete bicycle performance. Utilising McLaren’s vast carbon fibre expertise the S-Works McLaren Tarmac frame and fork feature a unique carbon layup schedule that has resulted in a 10% weight savings over the standard S-Works Tarmac. Like the frame, the crankset, custom AeroFly handlebars, and CLX40 carbon tubular wheelset all benefit from a new carbon layup that ensure both complete performance and maximum weight savings. Rounding out the package is a custom colourway, co-developed with McLaren and painted in their exclusive McLaren Special Operations Centre in Woking, Surrey UK – the same location where the $1.2 million McLaren P1 supercar is painted. Only 250 S-Works McLaren Tarmacs are slated for production worldwide and each highly limited bike comes equipped with a pair of custom made S-Works Road Shoes and an S-Works Prevail helmet, both painted to match the frame. Additionally, every S-Works McLaren Tarmac will be built to the individual specifications of the rider based upon the included Body Geometry Fit consultation for a truly personalised experience. The S-Works McLaren Tarmac – a partnership in excellence.
