Fizik unveiled a new lineup of saddles, the 2012 Kurve Saddle Range. Aside from the three unique Kurve line models namely Kurve Bull, Kurve Chameleon and Kurve Snake, a completely new rail design called Mobius is also introduced.

Bull, Chameleon and Snake saddles provide a dynamic interface, involving an entirely new base construction called Re:Flex with a unique layering that makes the shell greatly flexible. A circular rail pattern included in the Mobius unique design lessens pressure points.

Cycling comfort is enhanced by the Wing Flex design that reduces thigh contact on the saddle and improves power transfer. Weighing in at 220g, all of the 2012 Fizik Kurve Saddle models are designed with a subtle branding and animal silhouette detailing on the pad surface in a black color scheme.

Sugoi has released its latest water and wind resistant cycling garment this 2011 called the Majik Shell Jacket. With an incorporated SUGOi’s S3+ Protection fabric, the cycling jacket protects riders even under the harshest conditions during winter.

Constructed with a four-way stretch, the jacket also features a polyester outer face that is laminated to a polyurethane inner, including taped seams all over the garment. No doubt the construction is top-notch but it is not ideal under heavy rain.

While the jacket is breathable, it has a little problem on the sleeves. Its rear vent is not very effective so riders have to regulate temperature using the front zip. On the other hand, the shell jacket is low in bulk and is extraordinary when it comes to offering protection from nasty weather.

Wilier has unveiled a new bike called the 2012 Wilier Zero 7, which uses the new bottom bracket standard developed by FSA and BH. A special elastic film called the SEI Film is sandwiched between carbon layers in the tubes to help reduce vibration without adding much weight.

Wilier’s sponsored race teams will not use the bike so it is not crafted with the dated minimum weight restrictions that the racing’s international governing body imposes. For a medium painted frame, the frame will be very light, in under 800g.

Enhanced in the 2012 Wilier Zero 7 is its impact strength and interlaminate sheer strength. BB386EVO FSA crankset and ZnO / 60 ton Mitsubishi material help Zero 7 achieve combined outstanding stiffness with outstanding vibration damping properties in its very light frame.
