Fruit flavoured carbohydrate gel for an instant energy boost whilst on the move. Gentle on the stomach, easy to use and available in a choice of two great tasting flavours, blackcurrant and orange.

Nice flavour - does the job

"Easily digestible while on the move and less foil in wrapper than some (matters when you have fillings in your molars). Cheaper alternative to High 5, SIS etc. so good to see Wiggle come up with a fuss-free, reasonably priced competitor. Lack of variety could get a bit dull on long rides, so I mix these up with High 5 gels. Maybe Wiggle could sell a pack of 50% blackcurrant, 50% orange gels."
Pros: Lightweight, good value
Cons: lack of variety

A lightweight summer sock in Coolmax® mesh, ideal for cycling in hot conditions. The open mesh zones secure high breathability and also make the sock ideal for spinning down at the gym. Low-cut profile for minimal coverage of the ankle.

"I'm size 10 UK (44 European) and I got the large size. It's a little generous, but not so as you'd notice. Nice and light. Unfussy and ideal for summer - not so thin that you feel like you're wearing nothing at all, but no so thick as to make your feet sweat."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Lightweight

"I use this to protect my road bike over the winter. It's probably not robust enough to withstand outdoor storage, but is fine if you're keeping your bike in a garage or side alley. Good size that will fit most bikes easily without being too baggy."
Pros: Great Value, Lightweight, Good Fit

"Ideal on cool autumn and early spring days, but probably a little too thin for winter rides. (It struggled a bit with a 15mph November headwind.) Hugging, aerodynamic design with no sagging at a reasonable price. And looks really good (unlike some earlier dhb designs)."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: suited to 12 degrees c and above.

"Good value pair of bib tights just right for commuting or slightly longer rides. I haven't yet taken them out beyond 2.5 hours yet, but I'm sure they'll be good for 100k rides. Slightly big round the waist, but otherwise sizing is pretty good. (I'm 1m84 with a 32 inch waist and went for the medium.)"

"Light weight very good value shoe. Has a slight plastic feel to it and the Velcro straps are slightly too long, but a comfortable, padded fit and an improvement on the last dhb entry level pair I had which did me well for a good 5 years or so. I like the colours and design too."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: oversized velcro straps

"Don't be put off by the fact that this product was first tried and tested on cows' udders and is at the cheaper end of the market - just think where you're sticking it. It does the job, is ultra smooth and soothing. Have had no chafing even on the longest rides (6-7 hours) since I started using this. Equally good against joggers nipple and won't ruin your shorts. And it smells nice too."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, distinctive packaging!

Black/blue. Vapour is a very light grey. Looks good, though.

Any good for preventing nipple rash?!

I've used it against jogger's nipple on short distances in the heat and it's worked really well. Not tested it on a long run. It won't damage the fabric of your top.

Featuring an ergonomic 3D design for a comfortable and secure fit, Speedo moulded silicone swim caps create a smooth, hydrodynamic outline in the water. Available in a variety of colours, they are ideal for regular training.
 

Is the Fantasy Pink clour really pink, or is it red?

On the picture it looks red?

I just need a cheap swimming cap with a bright colour, for open water swimming.

Cool weather padded waist tight suited to Autumn training rides. (dhb Vaeon - previously dhb PACE)
 

small waist, long legs - which size?

I'm 6' 1" with a 32" waist and 33" inside leg. Will a size Medium be long enough?
Best answer
Top 1000 Contributor
Top 1000 Contributor
Yes, I'm the same size of you except my waist is 32". The leg size is ideal. But I found the waist too big and these tend to sag unattractively when I'm off the bike.
