After a year living, training, and racing in Newton’s top neutral racer it’s hard to find fault with a great shoe. For running marathons, these are a trainer shoe to run in.
With the summer in full swing and the rollers and turbo tucked away in a closet, I’ve been venturing outside to brave the vicissitudes of the British weather this season. Fortunately I was lucky enough to have the Endura Helium jacket tucked away in my jersey pocket just in case.
Spring is in the air: the time of renewal, rebirth, and regrowth. Or if you’re a cyclist: of mud, cobblestones, and driving rain. The Spring Classics have begun!
First of all, the basics: the Edge 500 is the successor to the Edge 305, though could perhaps be best seen as a stripped-down, smaller, lighter version of the 705. It really is a remarkable package: light and compact, yet offering 41 options to choose from displayed on up to eight customisable fields per ‘page’, of which there are three available for full customisation.The main point of departure is the lack of GPS mapping; though for me this was of little importance and if this is something you consider essential then you are well-catered for by the new, touch-screen successor to the 705, the Edge 800.
