A lightweight, waterproof and aerodynamic shoe cover that protects against wind and rain. The waterproof stretch fabric gives a tight fit and the rear zipper makes it easy to pull over the shoe.

Effective, but not particularly robust

"Keeps the wind and the rain out very nicely, but really only suited to racing or uninterrupted rides and not for the constant stop-start of your average commute. Mine developed a hole pretty quickly in the toe cap from stopping at lights and having to unclip from pedals and put my foot down."
Pros: Attractive, Lightweight
Cons: Wears Out Easily

"Pleasantly surprised by how comfortable these are. I've worn them on 50 mile rides with no problem. I'm not sure they'd cope with anything much longer, though, but they are perfectly good for day-to-day riding. Sizing is correct and they look smart too."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value

Keeps the chill off first thing

"Light weight and snug fit without being too tight helps to maintain performance. Fits easily into a back pocket when you don't need it any more and will also handle light showers pretty well. Quite resilient too - survived a tumble on its first outing completely unscathed when my jersey and shorts were shredded. Only slight issue is accessing anything you've stored in you jersey rear pockets underneath. As other reviewers of Sportful products advise, always go a size larger than normal."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, Lightweight, Rugged

"A .little bit fiddly to fit, but the online video is much better than the written instructions so I didn't have too many problems putting this together. You can also adjust the length of each guard depending on which tip you decide to fix. I love the way the rear guard is also designed to offer maximum protection to the front mech. Very reasonably priced too and adds very little weight to the bike. Will fit any standard size road bike."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: written instructions could be clearer.

Fairly cheap pair of goggles for everyday use

"Okay for everyday use, but find teh straps often need adjusting usually at the beginning of every swim. Fit not quite as good as some of the pricier Aqua Sphere goggles. You get what you pay for."
Pros: Attractive, Adjustable, Lightweight
Cons: needs frequent adjustments

"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

These are a lightweight summer sock in Coolmax® mesh, ideal for cycling in hot weather. The open mesh zones give high breathability and also make the sock ideal for indoor cycling 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

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

A thick moisturising solution for comfort and reduced friction on endurance road rides. Apply to your seatpad on shorter rides or apply to both your skin and seatpad on epic sportives and stage races.
 

Any good for preventing nipple rash?!

Top 1000 Contributor
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.

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.

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?

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.
