October 2011 Issue

The Gear to Get

Shimano | Dura-Ace PD-7900

Shimano recently redesigned its highest-end pedal--long considered the gold standard--to provide riders with an even wider, more stable platform. $399; bike.shimano.com

Michelin | Protek Max Inner Tubes
Most tubes deflate once punctured, but the self-plugging Protek Max features ridges that compress on one another to snuff holes and prevent flats. $9; michelinbicycletire.com

Smith | PivLock V90 Max
Each pair of these shades comes with three interchangeable lenses for optimal performance in different light conditions. $139; smithoptics.com
