Rapha Arm Warmers

A long time in the making, but after several adjustments and revisions, the 2014 version of Rapha’s Arm Warmer is commendably close to perfection. Made from Roubaix fabric, the built-in…

Gaerne G.Chrono Plus road shoes

The G.Chrono Plus shoes sit at the top of the range of Gaerne’s cycling shoes and are pretty feature-packed. The ‘EPS Carbon Fibre Sole’ is incredibly stiff and very thin,…


Lake CX160

Lake’s entry-level shoes might be the heaviest on test, but then they’re also among the few brands that use real hide. The leather uppers are neatly stitched with soft mesh…

Giro Apeckx

Recently marked down £20 to fit into the competitive sub-£100 price bracket and to free up a little space further up Giro’s burgeoning shoe range, the Apeckx represents staggering value.…

Spiuk Brios

For £10 shy of our £100 limit, there’s a lot going on with these Spanish road shoes. Ventilation is generous with channelling throughout the sole to keep feet cool on…

DMT Aries

Unashamedly pitched as a shoe for beginners and touring riders, the Aries is more about comfort than it is competition. The three broad Velcro straps ensure a snug fit though…

Louis Garneau Revo XR3

Comfortable from the first turn of the pedals, with a secure feel thanks to strong Velcro and a decent ratchet, the Revo XR3 shoes both feel and look way more…

Pearl Izumi Select Road

The Select Road shoes come up quite small — more so in length than in width — so you may need to go up a size. Sizing issues aside, the…

Shimano R107

Just like the £50 more expensive R170 that won last year’s big group test, the R107 is a no-nonsense, no-frills shoe that is quite simply brilliant. With an almost identical…

Specialized BG Elite

A well-padded tongue and heel cup lend a real luxury feel to these shoes. The slightly square and narrow toe box takes some breaking in, but is extremely comfortable once…

Northwave Sonic SRS

Malleable, soft leather and a reasonably wide fit made these shoes very comfortable from the off. The heel cups are snug and eliminate any rub or slippage, even when pushing…

Oakley Chainlinks

Oakley Chainlink Sunglasses

Giro Prolight SLX II road shoes

At the heart of the Prolight update is a revised Easton SLX EC 90 sole that, thanks to better triangulation, offers more stiffness across the platform of the shoe. Though…

Castelli Thermoflex kneewarmers

Castelli Thermoflex kneewarmer

You might think it would be easy to make a good kneewarmer. After all it’s little more than a tube of material. But it’s not. Many companies, good ones at…

Assos S7 T.Equipe shorts

With four shorts in the updated Assos range it might be hard to figure out which are best for you, but based on the Equipe we’d say you can’t go…

Gaerne Bora Reflex road shoes

With bright visuals, strong detailing and graphics, the Reflex offers a light, comfortable and well fitting (for this wide-footed tester) shoe. Stiff soled without being punishing, it has a nice…

Rapha Merino Mesh base layer

It’s odd to find an item 
of clothing that performs well across the seasons, yet that’s just what we have here with the 
Merino Mesh. I’ve found that with the…

Assos L1 Insulator gloves

Springtime often leaves you scratching your head as to which glove is best to wear. A ride may start off chilly, warm up, get wet then end 
in sunshine. Our…
