Enhanced low-profile GFX padding works to improve the fit and feel of modern riding footwear. With the GFX Semenuk construction and patterning, we bent our own rules on the less-is-more, technical-yet-clean Dissent design mandate. This was 100% deliberate and calculated. During prototyping, we took a lot of time and care to ensure the much-loved Dissent fit was not compromised by the additional patterning. Even the specific finishing inside of the socks is very calculated and purposeful. The final result might just be one of the best feeling riding socks you will ever wear.

 @Punkmunkey thats why you just use magnets and cloth or cardboard

 Does the plate come in a 27.5 cm square size? I'm really feeling a lot of pressure from my friends to replace my 26cm square plates.
  • 24 1
 They do come in a 27.5 cm square size, and in a "plus" size where the centimeters are actually inches and it's 27.5 inches squared.

Rumor has it that the 27.5 Plus Boost version is also ready for production, but due to the market not being ready to accept it, the production has been delayed about 12 months.

 "Enhances mental and physical performance"
I actually believe it. Problem is it won`t work for me because I have heard of the placebo effect before...

Oh, and because I don`t believe in those bullshit supplements
  • 12 2
 yeah go chug a bunch of what is esencially caffeine pills and tell me more about that placebo effect of yours.
  • 7 0
 enhances mental strength.
Please explain how that should work. And why not every top athlete is using it even w/o being sponsored
  • 2 2
 well every top athlete does use it go see how many coffees they drink in the morning and I can guarantee a very small number will say 0. this thing doesnt give you mental strength just a caffeine high.
  • 6 0
 Caffeine makes you feel less tired and thus more alert. The marketing guys can twist that into "enhanced mental strength"
  • 4 0
 Caffeine is also a diuretic, and constricts the blood vessels in your brain. Not so good for exercise or anything really, unless you really need an addiction (besides PB).
  • 1 0
 Caffeine does increase mental processing speed. But you'll eventually grow a tolerance to it. Pros use a lot of supplements to get as strong as they are. Especially after huge accidents.
  • 2 0
 Sorry to be pedantic on the words from those energy-pills but the only thing actually giving energy is ACTUAL food! Lycra-wearing roadies eat carbs every 30minutes to keep those Glycogen levels up. I love to take a jam sandwich with me on the trails to keep me going. If they're good enough for Graeme Obree, they're good enough for me!
  • 11 2
 That plate looks like a Session...
  • 7 0
 This should have been for April Fools. This has almost everything to enrage a pinkbiker.... Lmfao
  • 4 0
 Does anybody else feel like the industry is "jumping the shark" right now? I sense a backlash brewing against $250 pedals, $500 jackets, $4,000 "entry-level" bikes, and a multitude of opportunities to spend $50 on near useless kit (I'm looking at you MilKit - come on, who among us can't use a pump, pop a bead or unscrew a valve core or cares at all whether you have x or x+5mL sealant in your tires). You can't treat people like they have more money than brains indefinitely... People tend to get mad when they realize that they are being sold up the river.
  • 8 1
 dude come the f*ck on! $270 for flat pedals ?!?! thats insulting. really!!
  • 3 0
 I have a pair of Answer gloves that I've used for a season and look and feel just like they did new. Solid product for $30 and they don't look like anything on the market.

Also-I had to go on the website to fully understand MilKit. If you are going to advertise a new product, at least save me the trouble of having to do work to figure it out. *rolls eyes and opens beer
