This week: backpacks, bells, bottled air(!), Blinders, belts, bars and… bits.
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.
Lazer Phoenix+ helmet
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.
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
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.
Backcountry Research Mütherload Strap
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.
Whyte Bikes Grips
New, soft grips from Whyte. Featuring a grippy herringbone pattern and larger diameter end cap so you know how far you can slide your hand. Available soon in loads of colours.
Funn Black Ace carbon handlebar
A full UD carbon handlebar from Funn. The Black Ace is 785mm wide and available in three rises. This mid (15mm rise) bar weighs in at less than 200g and is apparently strong enough for Enduro racing.
Fabric Stratosphere pump
Fabric’s premium pump uses quality parts to create a pump that should last a lifetime. A wooden handle, aluminium body and steel braided hose give the Stratosphere a luxurious feel that will have you looking for more tyres to pump.
Crank Brothers F15
The slim F15 features a removable multitool and chaintool, all held in a magnetic aluminium sleeve. All the normal size allen keys and Torx keys are present. Did we mention the bottle opener on the sleeve?
