T FI.13_S5 Bib Shorts White, XLG - Men's

Regardless of whether you love or hate their fashionista print ad campaigns, you must give full credit to Assos for their role as pioneer in the bike industry. Before Assos' emergence in the late 1990's, the main qualifier to establish the quality of a bib short (made back then by companies like Pearl Izumi and Castelli) was the number of panels it had. It was as simple as simple could be: 4 panels = Weekend Warrior; 6 panels = Quality meets Value; 8 panels = Marvel of Engineering. Assos turned this formula on its head by championing cost-be-damned materials and complicated fabric patterning. They brought us unprecedented style; they brought us unprecedented comfort; they brought justification for unprecedented prices. No bib short in the Assos line was more emblematic of their cost-blind approach than their FI. 13 S2 model, first introduced in 2000. The S2 was priced at $280 at a time when other companies feared breaking the $175 barrier. And despite the gap in cost between the S2 and everything else, it instantly became our best selling bib short -- a trend that stayed constant for 7 years. Why was it so wildly popular? Like any high-quality piece of clothing, it made the wearer look dazzling. But beyond that was its technical attributes: Its elastic interface chamois proved to be a delight for rides of any length; and the cut of panels made them embrace our bodies with perfectly light tension. The fit, in short, was flawless. Given our history with the S2, we were understandably attentive when Assos announced it would be discontinued for a new model, the F. I. 13 S5. With the S5 Assos takes all of the signature qualities of the S2 and benchmarks them higher. The Executive Summary is this: In comparison to the S2, the S5 weighs nearly 20% less and has 20% less volume. According to Assos testing, the S5 puts nearly 25% less pressure on your genital area. The short panels and the chamois are made from fabric 35% more breathable than the S2, while offering nearly ...

Flood: A Novel (Burke Series)

Burke’s newest client is a woman named Flood, who has the face of an angel, the body of a high-priced stripper, and the skills of a professional executioner. She wants Burke to find a monster for her — so she can kill him with her bare hands. In this cauterizing thriller, Andrew Vachss’s renegade private eye teams up with a lethally gifted avenger to follow a child’s murderer through the catacombs of New York, where every alley is blind and the penthouses are as dangerous as the basements. Fearfully knowing, crackling with narrative tension, and written in prose as forceful as a hollow-point slug, Flood is Burke at his deadliest — and Vachss at the peak of his form. “An extraordinary thriller. . . . Vachss never flinches from the horror.” — Washington Post Book World “Burke would eat Spade and Marlowe for breakfast, not even spitting out the bones. [He] is one tough, mean, pray-God-you-don’t-meet-him hombre.” — Boston Herald

Kite (SB-The French List)

Rich and multilayered, with elements of both memoir and fiction, Dominique Eddé’s Kite defies categorization. Beginning in the 1960s and ending in the late ’80s, it is at once a narrative of a passionate, and ultimately tragic, relationship between Mali and Farid and the simultaneous decline of Egyptian-Lebanese society. Densely populated with myriad characters, Kite chronicles the casualties of social conventions, religious divisions and cultural clichés. The differences between East and West are central to the tension of Eddé’s book and share the responsibility for an unavoidable impasse between the lovers. This fragmented narrative—written in several voices that reflect the fragmented lives of those caught up in the madness of war—calls into question an entire way of living and thinking. In lyrical, elegant, original and often startling prose, Eddé weaves together multiple strands—meditating on the nature of language, investigating the concept of the novel, and powerfully depicting the experience of being blind. Deftly evoking the intellectual scene of Beirut in the ’60s, Lebanon’s mountainscapes and the urban settings of Cairo, Paris and London, Kite probes memory with a curious mix of irony and melancholy, ending up in a place beyond hope and despair.

Swimming (Ballantine Reader's Circle)

Twenty years ago, Vivian Silver abandoned her dreams of travel to marry the mysterious Jeb Wheeler, seduced both by his unnerving charm and his acres of untamed New Hampshire land. The hand-built house and swimming pond become the center of the universe for their entire family. Lila, their youngest, is consumed with love for her two older brothers, Aaron and Jack, and remains blind to the simmering tension between them. For beneath the surface of their idyllic setting lies a depth of explosive feeling that none of them can control. Into this heated atmosphere glides Aaron’s girlfriend, Suzanne, whose presence is threatening, exciting; Lila thrills to the ominous quality of Aaron’s absolute adoration for this young woman. Before her visit is over, Suzanne will unleash the forces of rage between Aaron and Jack, compelling one brother to commit an act against the other that can never be taken back.A decade later, living in New York, Lila still searches for Aaron, who disappeared that night, and Suzanne, whose mystique still exerts a hold on her memory.
