Product Review: Tioga Spyder Outland

Perhaps the most striking feature about the Tioga Spyder Outland saddle is its seemingly odd design; it is certainly more unconventional than the usual saddle, but positively not less comfortable. For one, no sensible saddle maker strives for discomfort, and, to have something released into the market suggests a breakthrough in design. Could that be the case for this particular saddle? Understanding Tioga’s philosophy behind its design helps shed light on its rationale. Key to it is its belief that padding actually has a limited and inefficient impact on shock absorption. This is down to the understanding that most paddings become compressed when a load is applied. With that in mind, Tioga’s solution to this is to design a dual-material shell with a webbed structure, which has been proven to be more comfortable and forgiving on bumps. Upon testing, it felt similar to having a mini suspension right underneath.

Quad Lock: Quadruple the Security

This actually happened to me not too long ago – I was cycling along the West Coast stretch with my phone securely clipped onto my bike mount, or so I had thought. Moments later, I traversed a particularly rough section of road that had been ravaged by monstrous heavy duty vehicles that frequent this route every morning. In a blink of an eye, my phone had vanished. I had to backtrack, against the traffic

Fulcrum Racing Zero

Wheelsets, some says that they make the most difference in your ride. Do they? This is where we find out about the Fulcrum Racing Zero wheelset. Fulcrum Racing Zero is at the higher end spectrum aluminium road wheelset that Fulcrum they themselves have to offer. Yes it may seem like a pretty hefty sum to pay for a aluminium wheelset. However it does have its merits in the weight department due to the fact that it is actually lighter than some of the carbon wheelset range fulcrum has to offer, coming in only at a weight of approximately 1520 grams. With weight, they too topped it off with an aerodynamic edge despite being a pretty shallow wheelset, it comes with straight pull aero spokes.
