Magura caliper

Magura USA RT8 TT Brake Caliper System

With the amount of technology being poured into tiny innovations in cycling these days, it’s rare to find a real game-changer. As professional auto racing teams know, the quickest, cheapest way to pull better times at the track is to upgrade the brakes. More powerful brakes mean you can brake later. That means you can go faster, longer. Magura RT8 Hydraulic Brake Calipers aren’t scrapping for a tenth of a second. They’re changing the way you race by letting you go fast longer with much more powerful braking, better aerodynamics, and a weight that’s comparable to the lightest mechanical caliper brakes on the market.

Let’s face it, a dependable jacket makes the difference between sitting at home and riding your bike on a rainy day. However, while many jacket makers make claims of waterproofness and breathability, a select few actually exert the time and money to test these claims. Not surprisingly, Castelli is one of these rare breeds, and its new Confronto Jacket proves just what a little obsessive TLC will do.

Ridley X-Ride/Shimano 105 Disc Complete Bike

While carbon fiber has quickly become the material du jour for elite level ‘cross race bikes, there’s still a committed group of racers who prefer to ride aluminum frames. And when your bike handles as well as the Ridley X-Ride/Shimano 105 Disc Complete Bike, it’s easy to see why. The triple butted tubeset yields a ride that’s both spirited, and surprisingly smooth, while the oversized tapered head tube keeps the steering precise when the ruts start getting deep. And with a sensible build kit that’s ready for a season of circuit laps, you’d be forgiven for asking why you need anything fancier.
