**NEW** SPECIALIZED EVADE AERO ROAD HELMET PDF Print E-mail

Specialized has unveiled its new aero road helmet, the Evade, at the Tour de France.

The combination of cooling and aerodynamic improvement over standard road helmets could prove beneficial for triathletes in long, hot events such as the Ironman World Championship and Wildflower.

Specialized’s secret black aero road helmet, worn this spring by Mark Cavendish and Vincenzo Nibali, now has a name, and that name is Evade.

Apparently, the new helmet does quite well at evading aerodynamic drag, saving a claimed 20 watts at 50kph and 10 watts at a slightly more reasonable 40kph. And it does so while keeping a rider’s head cool, according to Specialized.

That’s because the design team spent nearly half their time working on ventilation, explained Specialized aerodynamicist Chris Yu.

Some of the guys in last year’s Tour were just refusing to wear some of the helmets. It was just too hot. So Specialized knew they needed to start with a helmet that can be ridden in the heat and go from there.

Polar RC3 GPS Watch PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 31 October 2012 16:29

RC3_GPSPolar have released their first fully integrated GPS product, called the RC3. Previous Polar watches connected to a separate GPS pod to get GPS information. But the RC3 pulls it into a small and slim package.

It’s slim, easy to use, and accurate. In short, we think Polar has finally made a GPS compatible watch that stands up to a Garmin unit.

Here is a very detailed review of the device.

Here is the technical information on the product.

A note from Wanganui Mountain Bike Club:

Hi All,

The Harakeke MTB park is taking shape and many families are having great fun out there. Fantastic.

Formal signs will go up fairly soon with a detailed map. Paper maps will also be made available at a small cost from selected sites in the area e.g. I-site, Bikeshed, Cyclesport, Orange etc.  Costs are mounting in creating and maintaining the tracks and paying the club access and insurance fees.

We need to become a viable club and the only way to do that is to have a substantial and vibrant membership. Our ‘sweat equity’ is already substantial – in excess of 100hrs per kilometre of track – but we need people to join the club!

Attached are maps, as well as a membership application form.

Your challenge is:
