Void gear - any good?

Swede, think you were rocking a jersey on IG. Decent stuff?

They would have all gone for it were it not for the policeman. Unsung hero.

I have a pair of Mavic Galibiers which I quite like the styling of, and the soleplate is real stiff (no homo) and the buckles are super secure.

the fit is very different to other 'regular' shoes though - IIRC forums say the toebox is narrower than usual so you have to sometimes size up .5, but even then they might not fit.

yeah i like the aesthetics, quality isnt AMAZING but for the price its fine. i was told to size up as they supposedly fit tight but i reckon i could have stayed with normal size. it fits really well except a bit loose round the waist for me. i should have sent it back to replace but kept it now

my only fear about sizing down would be that it would be too short for me

How accurate is the max speed on Strava?

I've only just started using it and on my first two rides the max speed recorded is higher than the highest point on the graph view of the speed.

Depends if you're using GPS or a speed sensor (where it records how quickly your wheel is spinning via a magnet on a spoke and a speed sensor mounted on the frame).

GPS isn't particulary accurate but provided you've set it up right, the speed sensor is pretty bang on.

phone gps can have momentary blips that cause your speed to jump up massively, recording with your phone isnt the best, but your average speed should be fairly accurate.

That doesn't look too bad, ideally I'm looking for something that fits really close, the majority look like half a Melon perched on the top of your head
