In short – the best i have worn in a race!

This year Team FixIT has been given the possibility to ride with the very best helmets and sports glasses on the market, Etto and Swisseye. The riding equipment is important in a sport like bicycling, where the competition is tight and not only seconds, but hundredths, counts. Glasses which provide a good and clear view as well as an aerodynamic helmet, can make the difference between a victory and the second place. With Swisseye Novena glasses and Etto Scalpel helmets, Team FixIT will be able to perform in the elite division.

Personally, I have used the Swisseye Novena in several races now, and I have never had glasses that are this user friendly. The glasses have 3 sets of exchangeable lenses, so that you always have an optimal view no matter the weather conditions. The lenses are easy to change, and the adjustable nose bridge secures a perfect fit. I have used several glasses before, which have caused trouble in rainy weather due to condensation. This has never been an issue with Novena.

The Etto Scalpel has an ideal shape with aerodynamic properties in addition to excellent ventilation. It has all the functions you would ask for in a good helmet, a.o. shade parking in front and very flexible adjustment solutions. The most important point is the fit, it is well placed on the head at all times, and is by far the most comfortable helmet I have worn.
