She Beest doesn’t only bring style and a new look at kit design, but they do so in a only women’s fashion.

The water bottle is something that does not need reinventing and Fabric new that, so they reimagined the way we mount our bottles to our bikes. This cage-less design is sleek and simple yet elegant at an almost weightless cost. The two 1.5gram studs bolt in right where the standard cage would go and they grab onto the bottle and lock in for a secure ride.

With so many cleaners and care products out there, Carbon Pro had to find a way to separate themselves from the rest of the bunch. They found a way to blend all their products to be eco friendly to the point that all their entire line is 100% biodegradable, non toxic, safe, and cruelty free. All of that while making sure to provide the utmost care and protection for your bike as wellCheck out the entire line of Carbon Pro products at www.carbonpro-sports.com!
