As big fans of the lace-up, and rather expensive, Giro Empire, pulling on the more affordable Apeckx could have gone one of two ways. Fortunately, it went in a very…

We couldn’t have hoped for a more suitable test environment for Lake’s CX145 waterproof cycling shoes than we’ve had this winter. Riding through large puddles and flooded roads normally ensures…

Overshoes don’t have a hard job in life; they just have to keep your feet warm and dry. These ones do just that. A tad pricy, but lightweight, well made…

Spring might be a few months off but there’s already a blossoming romance in the CW office. We have quite simply fallen in love with this jacket. It might not…

Arguably the most versatile in Assos’s range of base layers, the Early Winter works well under a summer jersey — kind of like a set of arm-warmers and baselayer combined…

Make no mistake: Lusso’s Thermal under-helmet head-warmer is very, very warm. Ideal for when the weather really takes a turn for the worse, coverage is good and it works well…

On the face of it the Diluvio is an outstanding winter glove, exceedingly well cut and constructed with a long gauntlet for wrist coverage, palm-gripper and a nose-wipe. What’s not…

Assos Sturmnuss Knicker

Sturmnuss is quite a departure from the norm for the average cyclist and certainly isn’t a regular item you see from Assos. We’re familiar with the concept of a waterproof…

Altura Merino lond sleeve base layer

You expect a merino wool base layer to be warm in winter, but with its particularly heavy-duty feel compared to other merino layers, Altura’s offering must be one of the…

SealSkinz Waterproof Cycle Oversocks

It’s surprising anyone has been able to get any riding in over the holiday period, with so many fallen trees and flooded roads in Surrey and Kent. But with good…

Assos Sturmprinz Rainshell-Evo Jacket

There are two things that spring to mind when you think Assos: top performance and top prices. Unfortunately
