Endura Singletrack II Shorts

This is the second iteration of Endura’s Singletrack short, and the synonymous naming is purely coincidental… That said, I could draw plenty of parallels between our magazine and these shorts were I so inclined. Practical, down-to-earth and sleeker than the average baggy, they have become a very useful bit of everyday kit for me. Construction […]

Gore Bike Wear Fusion Trail

Although these Gore Bike Wear Fusion Trail shorts are in keeping with this year’s ‘TicTac’ fashion colour palette, they also come in brown or black. They’re made of a lightweight matte nylon with a thin Windstopper panel on the back and crotch for spray protection. A couple of side mesh panels aid ventilation and continue […]

Sombrio Birm Queen Shorts

The Birm Queen is a great cross-country short with a flattering, slimmer cut. Though relatively heavy for hot and sunny summer trail riding, discrete mesh-lined and zipped thigh vents add some cooling. The mid-weight fabric does, however, give the feel of an ultra-durable short with a sturdy, ‘built to last, get your money’s worth’ construction; […]

Altura Quantum X Shorts

The velcro waist adjustment on the back draws the spare fabric away from the snag zone and together with the four-way stretchy yoke keeps the waist secure even when hanging off the back of the saddle. Long zipped air vents on the outer thigh allow for increased air flow when the going gets hot without […]

Howies Dyfi Active Shell jacket

My first impressions of the Dyfi Active Shell were focused on the colour and looks; understandable given that I nabbed it from Singletrack for photoshoot dressing-up. It’s a happy looking shell that works as well during everyday wear as it does in the hills. Unlike shells from some other technical clothing companies, the Dyfi is […]

Lake MX331 disco slippers

The first pair of these shoes died a premature death following last year’s Transvesubienne race. Because it was a ‘race’, I wore my new ‘race shoes’ without having really done very much research about what sort of a race it was, and with catastrophic results (for the shoes, anyway). Disco slippers like this are meant […]
