Wet Ride excels over long distances and in the most extreme weather. It is a thicker, heavier bodied lubricant that is totally waterproof and is made using only premium synthetic oils and water repelling polymers.

"Bought these wheels to replace the ones that were at end of life on my winter bike. Bought them as a package with a set of Schwalbe Durano tyres and tubes at the same price as just the wheels so really can't complain! Done over 500 miles on them with no issues so far."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive

"I was having some issues with the relatively cheap saddle that came with my bike. Without being able to try loads of different saddles I looked at online reviews and forum recommendations and eventually chose the Max Flite Gel Flow saddle. It was immediatly more comfortable and has continued to be so especially on longer rides and all the issues that I had on the old saddle have gone."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality
Cons: Limited Color Choices

"I bought this jacket as a winter outer shell. Its well made a good fit and its so warm! I now cycle with few layers and in fact I have been using it with just a base layer underneath. Its not the cheapest jacket that you will find but as with a lot of things I guess you get what you pay for. The zip off sleeves will also make the jacket a good spring/autumn option."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Versatile, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

"Bought this to fix a light to my Topeak bag. The design is fundamnetally flawed in that as soon as you hit a significant bump the light and clip fall off. I've fixed that problem by using an elastic band round the bottom of the clip but really you shouldn't need to do that."
Cons: Poor Fit
