CRONO CR1 CYCLING ROAD SHOES

$500.00

Needing good-looking comfortable shoes to aid your performance?

Italian Craftmanship is central to Chainsmith, and Crono CR1 have many details that leave other cycling shoe specialists behind.

Crono has concentrated the last year on developing the CR1 paying particular attention to their patent MULTI CONTACT SYSTEM that allows close fit for any foot type while ensuring a perfect heel position while riding.

FEATURES

Made of high quality and light weight microfiber which is even more breathable due to the laser made openings; the heel grip is guaranteed by the application of no-slip lining and special reinforcement insert.
Equipped with the new FULL CARBON sole with scale value of 10+ downturn.

After months of testing and refinements R&D CRONO developed the innovative MULTI CONTACT SYSTEM, it hallows the traction of the first closure band distributed the power on 2 carriers. This allow the shoe to adapt much better to the shape of the different type of feet and also working with a closing line on the angle of the heel direction, prevents lifting while riding.

The BOA allows the rider to micro adjust while on the bike, and quick release when off.

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE INSOLE

Maximum stabilization of the foot during pedal, medial arch support to blocks pronation and keep the foot in the neutral position.

Q36.5 ARM WARMER PRE SHAPED

$80.00

Designed with a polyamide-polyester fleece and asymmetrical pattern for performance efficiency

Pre-shape Arm Warmer : Unisex

"We recommend the Q36.5 Arm Warmer. Not only does it provide the perfect amount of warmth for an Australian Winter, the upper arm grip does not grab or mark your arms like other warmers. The comfort is extreme."

The Chainsmith Team.

 
Pre-shape design knee warmer constructed entirely from a ribbed polyester polyamide fleece material. The fabric has excellent thermal characteristics and is extremely soft and flexible for comfort. It has been constructed with polyester on the inner side for the best wicking of moisture and polyamide on the outer side for a more dense and robust surface.

When the rider first wears the knee warmer he or she will notice that the upper end of the tube has been cut along a diagonal axis, finishing higher on the outer side of the thigh and lower on the inner side. This "pre shaping" avoids creating a tourniquet effect on the muscle group and allows for the best circulation. The pre-shaping also offers a more complete thermal protection to the outer, most-exposed, part of the thigh.

Fit is extremely ergonomic thanks to the multi-paneled ‘pre-shape’ cut. Both bottom and top ends of the knee warmer are finished without silicone grippers, employing, in their place, the same treated polyamide-elastane gripper used in the Salopette L1 Essential.

Q36.5 BASE LAYER WARMER FULLY INTEGRATED HERMETIC

$170.00

Feel the chill and need something light to retain your sanity on the bike?

The most extreme exploitation of Karl Mayer seamless knitting technology: zero seams, two gloves, one balaclava, one long sleeve base layer.

This is the answer to your circulation issues. 

Base Layer 4 fully integrated hermetic
The Fully-integrated Hermetic base layer is Q36.5’s most extreme exploitation of the potential of Karl Mayer seamless knitting technology. 1 base layer (slightly denser and more closed pattern than the Base Layer 3), 2 gloves and 1 balaclava are all woven from the same single tube to produce a hermetic deep winter riding environment. Thanks to the Karl Mayer machine’s unique ability to produce a true rip proof mesh and thus an un-hemmed finish you may cut and modify the base layer as you wish, remove the gloves and balaclava, or simply create a slit which allows for these components to be either worn in or folded aside, at no expense to the product’s durability. As with all the other base layers in the range riders (even those already familiar with other seamless base layers) will be able to notice significantly greater elasticity and lower resistance to movement in all directions, given by the Karl Mayer machine’s ability to eliminate seams from all parts of multiples tubes (with the exception of a small joining stitch on the top of either shoulder), unlike other base layers which generally require stitches joining the arm to the body, as well as being hemmed. The ‘honey-comb’ pattern of the knit is deployed in various different densities, along with open-mesh sections, mapping the thermal requirements and regional sweat rates of an athlete’s body. Not only does this allow for the best rider comfort and protection, it also allows for the volume of the product to be significantly reduced where possible.
Weight is 138g (result of the design, not an objective) and is best used above 0°C.

Q36.5 GLOVE TERMICA LONG FINGERED SILVER WARMER

$150.00

Theres no reason for cold extremities with Q36.5

Termico Glove
A Mid-season and Early European Winter glove designed with Q36.5’s proprietary UF Thermal Shell fabric (originally developed for use in our full winter Termica jacket). The laminated, fleece-lined fabric provides excellent waterproofing and thermal qualities.


The glove is cut with same minute attention to comfort and ease-of-movement as the rest of the collection. The pre-shape fit, which can be noted in the way in which even when unworn the glove curls forward in the wrist and thumb-forefinger areas, mimics the riding position of the hand, resulting in minimal tension in the glove’s fabric (and subsequently also the hand within it) while in a riding position. Lateral reflective panels.

Palm padding for nerve protection and Japanese micro-suede inserts.

If you suffer from poor circulation we suggest adding a merino base layered glove for when the winter really sets in.

Q36.5 SNOW CAMO SOCK IN WOOL AND SILK WARMER

$40.00

Plus
Essential for those who prefer that full pedal to the metal thin sock feeling all year round, this is an Avant-garde ultra light winter sock constructed with superior natural thermic merino wool and silk threads. The sock follows the same lightweight density construction techniques of the Ultralight adapted for use in cooler climate conditions: the addition of silk (scarcely used in cycling socks) to the merino wool increases the thermal properties of the fabric while at the same time significantly reducing volume and weight. 37g per pair.

Please note that this wool-silk thread blend will shrink slightly (though not enough to necessitate wearing a larger size than usual). For ultimate zero-crease contoured fit we recommend cold washing the sock before first use.

SUOMY HELMET GUNWIND ANTHRACITE / RED MATT

$289.00

After a good looking helmet made for road racing?

SUOMY : GUN WIND

The GUN WIND modeoffers some of the best technological solutions in Cycling safety and comfort. Made with "in-molding" technique, the helmet has an outer shell made of polycarbonate, meanwhile both inside and outside use polystyrene combined with a reinforcement thermoplastic resin composite. This makes the product more rigid and safe.

The use of a low density polystyrene provides lightness and comfort. This particular research allows a realisation for a natural interspace between the helmet and the head for amazing inner ventilation.

The accurate use of adjustments featured by a closing ratchet at the base of the head make this a very comfortable helmet. With removable and easily washable inner linings the GUNWIND is kept hygenic and in good order. Its designed for both extreme racing, and suitable to the general public for its “easy to use” versatility.

Chainsmith Team note: We have found this helmet perfect for those who have a smaller head and are looking for a close fit. The helmet is light, comfortable and offers very good ventilation.*Note: You can also purchase a plastic cover that fits the external helmet surface to prevent cold and wetness.
