Fresh Goods

January 15, 2010

It’s been a slow this week in terms of fresh goods – but here’s what we got in.


Spank Tugg Job Grips
From: RidingHigh

These bright, 145mm grips are extra thin and claim to be extra responsive. What makes them different however, is the fact that they smell! Made with a slightly scented rubber, they are available in 6 fruity flavours – magic black, apple red, grape purple, berry blue, zesty orange and vanilla white. While it sounds good initially – the real test will be how fresh they smell after hours of sweathy, filthy trails. RRP £7.99

Garmin Edge 500
From: Garmin Europe

The Edge 500 is a new GPS from Garmin. It weighs 60g and is the same size as most cycle computers – 4.8 x 6.9 x 2.2cm. It features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver, requires no calibration, can be switched quickly and easily between bikes and connects wirelessly with ANT+™ compatible third-party power metres. Variable features allow it to track speed, distance, time, GPS position, elevation, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent. The Edge 500 can also be wirelessly connected to a Garmin speed/cadence sensor and a Garmin heart-rate monitor. Then, once your ride’s done, you can connect the Edge to your computer with the included USB cable to analyze your performance. RRP: Basic package (Garmin Edge 500, bike mount, ac charger, usb cable, cd manual) £199.00. Deluxe package (Basic with cadence + heart rate monitors) £249.00


DMR Moto Digger Wire
From: Upgrade Bikes

The DMR Moto Digger is a dirt specific tyre for looser, softer conditions. The big volume casing allows lower tyre pressure to be run, giving a wider contact area and increased control. The sharp edged, Motocross style tread blocks are profiled to dig deep and find grip where other tyres lose it. Staggered shoulder blocks that wrap round the tyre, give powerful high speed, low angle cornering. RRP £19.99
