Mucky Nutz Northern Star and Muck Chucker Brake Rotors
From: Mucky Nutz
These two rotors from Mucky Nutz are very lightweight, weighing in at 80g and 82g respectively, however the people at Mucky Nutz claim that the performance has not been hampered by the light weight.

Charge Duster 8
Introduced last year as a UK specific mud plugger, the new Duster 8 once again features a Shimano Alfine hub gear continuing the theme of simplicity and low maintenance. This bike is one of a number of bikes in the range to feature a galvanised frame finish. This finish, due to the nature of the coating, means that each individual frame has a unique look when examined closely and should be one of the most durable on the market. RRP £1249.99
Ragley Logo Seat Clamp
This seat clamp has a nice long lever and a spare plastic bush for when the time comes to replace the original. RRP £9.99
Ragley Skinny Grips
Coming in a variety of colours, if thats the sort of thing you look for, these grips have loads of sticky nodules. The bar end cap is CNC’d as opposed to plastic. RRP £14.99

Speed Stuff Bullit Helmet
The Bullit helmet is made from a strong and lightweight one piece monocoque helmet body. It looked good until we found the additional, rear spoiler attachment that left us bemused. If you like Batman then this will suit you. But if it helps young kids wear helmets then it’s a good addition. It’s certainly one of the “larger vented” offerings of its type. RRP £64.99
IXS Krypton Helmet
More helmets for our forthcoming group test. RRP £82.99
IXS Orion Helmet

The handlebar mount has an adjustable positioning system, so you can connect the clamp to the handlebar and position the lamp over the stem for a direct illumination. The light claims to have between a 4 and 48 hour runtime. RRP £499.99
