It’s Friday and a weekend of shralping gnar, shreddin’ trails and hitting the sweet spot is calling; so here’s all that’s box fresh in the Tower of Singletrack this week…
Giro New Road Casual Bike Clothing
Jorji models the very-hard–indeed-to-photograph orange wind jacket, 100% Pertex, also comes in gray.
Chipps models (?) the Mobility Trouser (Tailored) and the Ride Jersey. Jersey also available in “China Blue”. Keks available in “Dark Shadow” or “Dress Blue” only – Chipps gets this colour because he’s “special”.
Included because we like the photo: Mechanic Waterproof Jacket over Merino Polo top
Price Jacket: £199.99
Price Polo Jersey: £99.99
All from: Zyro
Whitenosugar Bamboo Tech Tees
Lovely bamboo t shirts that help fund filming projects and more movies. Soft, quick drying and great for riding in.

Lovely leather goodness for hiding your cards and cash in.
Elements Pocket: £65
Slim Sleeve £59
Elements Travel £99
Elements Sleeve £49
Aircast Wrist Orthosis
Dave’s on a mission to improve his scaphoid and hip bone graft disaster healing times. Off with the old school plastercast and on with the cool vent, wicking and air bag comfort of the Aircast then. Next ultrasound; and lasers!
From: Physio Room
Nathan LED Lights
Bright flashy goodness to help you roam the gloam, and stay safe on the roads, kidz…
Lightbender wraps around your leg and makes it all glowy and visible an’ that.
Lightspur grips to your heel with plastic spiky things and apparently stays put even if you run like a loon (like our Barney, then).
Strobelight clips to clothing or stuff (or hair) and weighs nowt.
All from 2Pure
Chipps is doing something ridiculous and stage-racey next week, so he’ll be eating nothing but this stuff for a few days. We don’t envy his laundrette.
And now… Pumps! Anyone would think we’re doing a grouptest…
