Yay! The deluge of deliveries has returned. It’s Friday, it’s fresh and here’s the goods…
Ibis Hakkalügi Disc
Weighing in under a claimed 1150g for even the largest size frame the Hakkalügi now comes with a model equipped for disc brakes (there’s still a canti version for you stick-in-the-muds). The carbon frame features 135mm dropouts so you can choose 29er wheelsets and spacing to allow a 38c tyre too. Pressfit BB and tapered headtube completes the modern spec and compliments the ENVE fork the frameset is equipped with.
Light, fast and lovely. Want!

Pro Atherton DH components
So you’ve watched 4×3 and now you need the gear to emulate your heroes? Help is at hand with this selection of Pro Atherton DH componentry. The saddle has Kevlar and hollow titanium rails, the stems are available in 30mm,50mm and 65mm lengths and are accompanied by a 31.8, 800mm, 20mm rise handlebar (or should that be handle gnar?)
The bars feature handy cut points so you can choose which length you want accurately. Do you want them in Rachel, Dan or Gee?
Atherton Stem: £89.99, Handlebar: £59.99, Saddle: £59.99, Grips:£19.99
Pro Vandeham FR Cockpit
If the Athertons are too much to live up to, or you want a bit more FR than DH, how about a bit of Thomas Vanderham instead? Deck your cockpit out with a 31.8, 800mm, 20mm rise bar, 35mm,50mm, or 65mm stem and matching grips. There’s only one of Thomas though so you can either copy him or choose your own length.
Vanderham Stem: £79.99, Grips: £19.99 and Handlebar: £59.99

Lazer Oasiz Helmet
A nice bright helmet for plenty of pop in photoshoots or more likely videoshoots, given the integral GoPro mount on the top of the helmet. The Lazer Oasiz weighs in at 285g and features the Rollsys retention system and is plenty venty.
Giro Carbide shoes
The Carbide shoe is Giro’s recreational trail shoe that would also cope fine with entry level racing. A synthetic leather upper with three Velcro straps is accompanied by a grippy sole and an antimicrobial footbed that should stop them smelling after use.
Gloworm X1 LED light
Need a dinky light for your helmet? The Gloworm X1 features a Cree XML U3 emitter that throws out a claimed 850 lumens in a tiny package that weighs in at 58g. Waterproof and CNC machined from 6061 alloy with a two-cell battery that should see you right for 2hrs 15min on full beam.

Bell Variant helmet
Claire’s modelling the lovely Bell Variant as she takes safety in the workplace seriously. Our model is the Matte Black/Bright Green colour combo and others are available. The skate-inspired helmet features Bell’s Twin Axis Gear retention system, VPV visor and lots of vents.
Niteye B20 light
The Niteye B-20 comes in red or black, comes with a two-year warranty for the light and a year for all other components, and it is available from www.Niteye.co.uk
General Lee Cogs
Want bigger gears at the back for your 1x drivetrain without spending out on XX1? General Lee cogs replace the top end of a SRAM 1070 cassette giving you a 25/29/34/40 spread.
