Evoc CC16L

Price: £104.95

We featured the smaller CC10 a few weeks ago, now it’s the turn of the big boy. Capable of swallowing everything you might need for a full day in the hills. The front pocket is neatly compartmentalized for all your spares. Two mesh pockets on the sides are great for easy access snacks.

None so black as the EVOC CC16.

Lazer Phoenix+ helmet

Price: £79.99

Full face protection from the Belgian helmet specialists. The Phoenix+ incorporates plenty of ventilation and weighs in at less than a kilo, despite the fiberglass construction. Best of all it won’t break the bank at less than eighty quid.

Ride Air

Price: £59.99

A convenient, bottle sized air ‘capsule’ that can easily inflate flat tyres or seat a tubeless tyre. It fits in a standard bottle cage if you want to be the hero of the ride and inflate everyone’s tyres. Refil using a standard track pump and use the inbuilt gauge to keep an eye on the pressure.

Knog Mini Blinder

Price: £23.99 each (Twin pack £45.99)

Dinky little rechargeable lights perfect for riding back after the pub. The Blinder uses nine LEDs to light the way and can easily fit around large diameter bars and posts. USB recharging makes them super convenient.

Knog Oi Classic bell

Price: £15.99

The Oi might not save you from a rampant bear but should make you a little easier to hear along the local towpath. The narrow design ensures it doesn’t take up too much vital bar real estate.

Price: £18.99

Heavy duty Hypalon material helps the Mütherload hold your gear in place whilst riding the hardest EWS stages. For the rest of us not riding EWS every weekend, the Mütherload helps keeps the weight off your back and put it back on the bike.
