I am now 2 steps away from returning back to the offroad trails. Just bought this lovely Camelbak hydration pack with capability to carry up to 2 liter of water. I am still in the hunt for a helmet and a pair of cycling shoes.
Power Balance is performance technology that uses holograms embedded with frequencies that react positively with your body’s natural energy field to improve balance, strength, and flexibility. When Power Balance comes in contact with the body's energy field, it resonates at a low-level frequency that improves the flow of energy throughout the body and helps regulate its static energy. Like a tuning fork, Power Balance creates cellular harmony that allows you to perform at your optimum level. The high density Disk acts much like a switch, resonating within your system and turning on your energy field while it clears the pathways so the electro-chemical exchange functions like the well-tuned generator it was designed to be. These sleek styles are crafted from 100% neoprene and feature a comfortable Spandex lining that adds extra softness and stretch. Complete with two Power Balance holograms, the neoprene wristband is a perfect fit for any of the day’s activities. Power Balance Bracelets are worn by professional atheletes around the world...
