The wonderful London ‘Cross Summer Series starts in a few weeks… Time to dust off the ‘cross bike, kick the tyres and light the fires!
Our rag-tag group of ‘cross lovers will be there to get their fix of mud & sweat, look out for them twitching from excessive coffee intake and discussing the best way to ‘squeeze a lung back in’.
Here’s a few hot products to make sure you look like you mean business:
Challenge tyres – from £52.99
Handmade in Italy and available in several tread patterns for different conditions Challenge tyres are officially AWESOME! But most importantly each version comes in both tubular & open clincher variants. Just in case you don’t understand the difference between a normal clincher, an open clincher & a tubular here’s a handy link to make sure you can geek-out with the best!
SRAM CX1 components – from £64.99
This is the first groupset intended for ‘cross that uses a 1x set up… The key items here are the thick/thin chainring & the clutch rear mech… Compatible with all 10 & 11 speed SRAM systems all you need is this new rear mecch & a chainring, can you say UPGRADE!?!
Lazer Helium helmet – £149.99
‘Cross is fun but there’s always a good chance you’ll end up on the floor at some point (if not you’re not trying hard enough, right?) so it’s super important to make sure you have a good lid. The Helium from Belgian helmet manufacturer Lazer is light, strong, well vented and can be fitted with an aero lid for cold, wet races.
