It’s here again! A veritable smorgasbord of stuff we’ve been sent this week – it’s feisty, it’s fabulous, it’s Fresh Goods…
Saracen Kili Flyer Carbon
Chipps’ latest playmate is this 2015 Saracen Kili Flyer, in full carbon. The 2014 model has a carbon rear triangle: the new one has gone all the way, saving a total of 600g on the 2014 Flyer.
It’s still 120mm travel, with Saracen’s ‘TRL’ (tuned ride link, acronym fans) single pivot, link driven rear end, same as this year’s model. Lots of lovely internal routing for us to drool over (and mechanics to cry about). This is one of six in the country (oooooh) – they’ll be about in the wild in October.
From Saracen bikes
Price: £3,699 for the Flyer Team (this one), or £1,999 for the X Carbon frameset.
Howies Remember Steve Tee
A t-shirt in memory of Steve Worland. £5 from every one sold will go towards installing a bench near Steve’s favourite trails in Ashton Court near Bristol, and providing a defibrillator.
E Thirteen LG1+ Chainguide
It’s a guide – great at keeping your chain in the right place; useless at rubbing sticks together and helping grannies across the road.
E Thirteen Guide ring
Chainring to go with the guide. Anodising FTW!
EVOC Phone Case
All the German Freeride protection you need for your phone. Efficient and understated…

Jorji’s got some new riding swag from Ion…
SS Electra Tee £37.95
Looking cool, now the weather’s turned and it’s chucking it down. Also good for riding in, according to Jorji.
Ion Ram Set glasses: £81.95
Nova Cargo shorts, for – erm – carrying new cargo?
All from ION products
Genuine Innovations CO2 inflator and mount
A very light, small, push-to-inflate CO2 inflator thing. Just the job to tape under your saddle…
..unless you also get one of these. The X-mount uses nice tiny velcro straps instead. For the neater racer in your life.
Klickfix CamOn! Gopro camera mount
If you’re stuck for places to stick your GoPro camera, this might help. Lots of interesting possibilities without the use of sellotape and swearing.

Low powered bluetooth devices that can detect a special app on your bluetoothed phone, send information backwards and forwards, have a bit of a computery conversation and do lots of exciting stuff (apparently). They can determine range for how far away (up to 70m) or how close (down to 20cm), and They Are The Future (discuss)..
