The Syrinx, from 
Czech manufacturer Rubena, is pitched 
as a training tyre so we’ve been pleasantly surprised by its 
wet and dry performance and excellent rolling resistance. The tyres have…


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…

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…

Northwave Sonic SRS
