Fresh Goods

March 11, 2011

Let’s cut to the chase. It helps soak up a Friday afternoon and it gives endless opportunities to argue with your mates about the benefits of various new mountain bike products down the pub in the evening. Yep it’s Fresh Goods Friday!

We also have to warn you it’s a little bit sparse in “exciting stuff”. There’s plenty of material to cover your nether regions and there’s lots of ways not to get lost. Hopefully next week we’ll back to the normal “How much?!” and other products that combine both lust and indignation in your hearts.


A Multitude of Shorts from Altura this week. Including some that only the Brits would get.

Apex Short £79.99

The Altura Apex is the where the buck stop for Altura.


• Highly durable multi fabric construction
• Stretch crotch and rear panels for riding comfort
• Removable 6 panel inner short with proGEL insert (available separately)
• Triple popper waist closure and zip fly
• Rear waist adjusters
• Zip leg vents and side pockets

Women’s Quantum 3/4’s£54.99

Women’s specific trail 3/4 with a removable padded liner.

Fatigue Baggy £44.99


•     Hardwearing, soft touch stretch fabric

•     Belt loops and double popper waist

•     Hand, rear and cargo pockets

Semi Dry Baggy Shorts£49.99

Well we guess Gore started the trend with the Alpine shorts all those years ago.

The Semi Dry shorts have dry panels where you need them (on your bum and back of your legs) and more breathable fabric where you don’t need the waterproof panels.
Available in a 3/4’s as well

Women’s Specific Apex as well.


X 2…

New Cicerone Guide to the Lakes by Ian Boydon £12.95

Charge Spoon Saddle £24.99

We like Spoon saddles in the office. Honest comfortable saddles with a nice bit of concave and don’t make you bankrupt.


Naughty Knogster’s expletive-based fingerless gloves.

Nice USB-rechargable lights


The Marketing Guy at Finisterre is permanently “stoked” or “super stoked “. So much so that they had to make a synthetic base layer for him to be stoked in as he was making the wool ones catch on fire (possibly). Anyway, £30.00. Feels dead nice to touch.

Muc Off

Dirty Work Wipes. They are really ace for getting cr*p off anything (probably would get nail varnish off your toes). Smells nice. Good for cleaning up scenes of crimes as well £2.99


We’ve honestly not got the foggiest what any of this stuff does – but both Mark and Chipps love it. More to follow soon.
