These Shimano XT pedals are designed to take the rigours of off-road competition whilst also being perfect for cross country trail riding. Beautifully constructed, they are lightweight, high-performing and have an easy entry/exit system.
Designed for your day long adventures, Fondos and mile eating training rides the Isadore bib shorts utilise the very best fabrics and chamois. After hours in the saddle you'll still barely know they're there.
"The socks are waterproof and there is a clever waterproof seal (the Hydrostop) on the inside to stop water running down your leg into the sock...BUT...the inner seal isn't bonded to the waterproof sock membrane so the water gets in anyway and fills up inside the sock. A HUGE oversight by the manufacturers, so quite simply I do not recommend them."
Cons: terrible design error

With a carbon and glass fibre sole, DMT have combined the respective lightness and stiffness of these materials to make an ultra-rigid, ultra-light shoe. A smart closure system and a 1 strap system make this an easy to use and feature full product.
Gore Bike Wear Oxygen Windstopper Softshell Jacket
Windproof and water resistant protection for Autumn/winter conditions. The Oxygen jacket features a Softshell fabric construction with a windstopper membrane for breathable, low bulk windchill defence. Cut for a tight, secure fit in the cycling position.
"The colour of these jackets is a bit weird - I think it is the fabric as the colours are quite muted and not at all vibrant like in the photos. Great jacket / jersey that fits snuggly and you'll keep going back to time again.
Also, the 'hood' thing in the collar is a bit weird. They should just give up on it and make the collar more snug."

Northwave Husky Lobster Full Finger Gloves AW13
Synthetic leather winter gloves with a waterproof and windproof internal membrane. Featuring a Eurotex® insulating membrane to help keep you warm during cold, wet and windy weather conditions.
"Most 'lobster' gloves for some unknown reason have a 2+2 fingure configuration. Clearly not designed by cyclists! These gloves however have a far more useful 3+1 configuration, leaving the index finger alone to operate road or MTB STI's, just the way you want to. Try these then the other lobster gloves and you'll see what I mean - these ones work!
Sadly, however, the fit wasn;t great for me so I went for some standard finger Gore gloves instead."

DeFeet Aireator World Champion Socks
DeFeet socks have stood on the top step of the World Championship podium so many times. This sock celebrates the most beautiful colour combo in cycling: the revered "arc en ciel".
"This PRO microfibre tape is very poor. Unless you really want a leather look, avoid this like the plague. I am known for being a bit of a ninja at bar tape wrapping, but this stuff...it's terrible, it's very hard to get a good finish. It has no stretch, it cannot be revesered (as the glue damages the top coat) and it has absolutely no give or softness. Buy the PRO digital or Gel instead - it is much better."
