Fizik R3B Road Cycling Shoes Review 2018

The new X-ALP Elevate really represents what modern mountain biking is all about. Mountain bikes have progressed and really transformed mountain biking and we needed a shoe that really kept up with the technology in the pace of innovation. The Elevate, like all of X-ALP shoes does two great things: It maintains pedal stiffness where […]

Parlee Altum Disc Review

The rider’s ride. Parlee made a name for itself building bespoke carbon fibre frames in the US when few other brands had even heard of the black stuff. Those bikes still exist today as the cream of Parlee’s crop, but in recent years it has branched into stock models, subcontracted to the Far East, to […]

Vulpine Extrafine Merino Padded Boxers Review

Have you ever had a moment when you wanted to ride your bike, but you didn’t want to wear Lycra bibs, and plain old pants under jeans was just not going to cut it? Us neither, but when that time comes – and it will – you’ll wish you had a pair of merino boxer […]

Waxed canvas with reflective stitching, it’ll […]

Ass Savers Review

Quite apart from being an international superhero organisation obsessed with donkeys in peril, Ass Savers is a Swedish-born company that all but invented the lightweight saddle mudguard in 2014. The idea is unchanged – simply bend into shape then clip onto saddle rails – but it has now been refined to fit carbon-railed saddles and […]

Oakley Crossrange Prizm Glasses Review

If ‘hyperspectral’ sounds cool, it is. The process involves dividing light up into many more bands than the red-greenblue of the human eye, and Oakley has used it to create a lens that filters out ambient light ‘noise’ for greater clarity of vision. The texture of tarmac, for example, appears more pronounced through a Prizm […]

Edco Flüela Wheels Review

The sharp V-shaped cross section of Swiss wheel brand Edco’s new Flüela wheelset appears in direct contradiction to the current thinking that to be aero yet controllable, rims must have blunt profiles. It’s no mistake – Edco says this doesn’t have to be the case and claims to have proven it in a white paper […]
