The Second annual CABDA West show brought the latest tech from across the cycling scene to the Del Mar Fairgrounds just north of San Diego California. Featuring more exhibitors, dealers and educational panels, CABDA West left our inner bike geek satisfied.
Italian heritage brand DMT released their top-of-the-line, slipper-like, KR1 shoe early last year. For 2020, a limited edition run of the KR1 features Swarovski crystals atop the breathable mesh exterior. $450 can score you the 510-gram standard version of the KR1, but expect to pay upwards of $100 more for the extra bling.
Read our recent review of the KR1, where we put it up to the test against Specialized’s lightweight 300-gram S-Works Exos.
DMT’s latest release is dubbed the SH1, and aims to deliver similar performance as the KR1 that maintains the KR1’s emphasis on breathability. Priced high at $350, a pair of the SH1’s do deliver about a 20-gram weight savings over the KR1s, hitting the scales at a claimed 490-grams.
