Strengths: Very light upper, with no seams, so good for us T2 runners. Sole is a little firm, but once you get moving it loosens up to provide the cushioned and stable ride. I'm going to use them in my next 10k instead of my asics trainers
Weaknesses: Change the laces. They're pants. Not literally though - that would be foolish. It'll also be interesting to see how long the upper lasts during autumn/winter.
Strengths: Lots of flavours, settle in stomach well and their energy seems to last well into the run / cycle
Weaknesses: Chewy and can be a a bit tough when cold.
Overall: My fav bar. Started eating them a while back occasionally before a tempo run or before races of half marathon or above to good effect. I then started using them before my morning run or cycle, and it's helped me immeasurably - I no longer feel like I want to fall over due to low sugar, chuck up because I've eaten breakfast or feel like I'm carrying a small bowling ball in my stomach. They're a bit chewy for sure, and I don't eat them on the run because of this.
Strengths: Light and responsive (as one would expect from a racer). A smallish amount of cushioning which helps on the longer distances but doesn't distract from the feel of being able to grip the road with your toes. Lovely.
Weaknesses: Harder to find than rocking horse doings.
Overall: Ticks all the boxes, but don't try them if you need support. You won't get it.
Weaknesses: Where do I start? The GPS struggled to link up, and dropped the connection on a regular basis. HRM gave accurate readings when there wasn't any other digital devices (mobile phones, digital TV receivers, other GPS units to name a few culprits) within approx 100 yards, which caused the unit to record a HR rate of 220 BPM. Both of these fundamental problems led to the rest of the functions being pretty useless. Shame really.
Overall: It would probably work OK on a moor or somewhere else equally isolated. However, since I don't have the time, inclination or money to move house, this unit caused nothing but disappointment and frustration. However, if you do live on a moor, and fancy doing a follow-up review, I'll be putting the unit on ebay. Any offers?
