Bike-Discount reviews ...

We want to know: In our review series we're taking a look behind the product – we're checking out interesting new stuff around the bike, but also take a closer look at things that have been on the market for some time. We want to provide more information than just a product description, look at details and thus enable our customers to make up their own minds. Here it is also not always a matter of achieving an evaluation. It's rather a matter of an authentic description of what the tested product can – or simply cannot – whether it ultimately fulfils the desired requirements, then everyone can decide for himself.

Review

Five Ten Kestrel Pro Boa

The "Pro" in the name already suggests it. What we are dealing with here is one of Five Ten’s top shoes. This is also reflected in the price, it is the most expensive Five Ten shoe in our shop. One of the reasons is the Boa lacing system which does, of course, raise the question of whether you really need it and whether the performance of the shoe justifies the money you are asked to spend.

Pearl Izumi transitional outfit

It's already in the starting blocks: the notorious transitional period. These spring days can be very fickle.

Fox Head Proframe

Many mountain bikers 'sit between the helmets'. What exactly does that mean? Well, a fullface helmet would be the most fitting down the trail, but too heavy and too little ventilated for the times in between.

e*thirteen TRS+

A height-adjustable seat post is a must in enduro, but it also makes sense in other disciplines. That's because it's a big advantage to get the saddle out your way in challenging terrain — in order to have the necessary freedom to drop the saddle and shift your body weight more effectively.
