Heeeeeeeerrrrreeee’s Johnny! Oh. No, sorry – my mistake.
Johnny’s on holiday somewhere remote with his family and an axe. But it’s Fresh Goods Friday. Yay!
Sony Actioncam and LiveView Remote.
For an upcoming camera grouptest, here’s Sony’s offering. The Actioncam has an 18.9Megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor, a Zeiss lens, GPS and Wifi and all sorts of other bells and whistles, mounts and so forth. Chief among these is the Liveview Remote, which can wirelessly co-ordinate up to 5 cameras and display what they’re seeing on your wrist. Oooh.
Liveview Remote: £129
Lumicycle Explorer Enduro light.
This very neat little puppy can punt 3000 lumens continuously (lesser, more battery conserving outputs are available), but it can also push out a colossal 3500 lumens for a 3 minute burst – presumably for those moments when you have a rock that badly needs melting. It comes in a lovely tin rather like the…
Lumicycle InSight light
Not so much a rear light as Deep Thought with red flashy bits, the InSight promises to ‘revolutionise the cycling industry’. It has an accelerometer which lights up a couple of super-bright CREE lights when you slow down, and is apparently instantly self learning over any terrain – so it can tell, for example, if you’ve just ridden over a bump, or a non-compliant marmot, or you genuinely want to slow down. All hail the approaching vanguard of Our New Robot Overlords.

Sugoi Icon Jacket
Sugoi’s very GREEN waterproof. I could see the Joker wearing this if it got a bit rainy in Gotham City and he was fresh out of poison-gas umbrellas. He’ll have to fight our Jorji for it first, mind. And she’s immune to poison gas! Place your bets…
E*thirteen EX Extended Range cogs
For when you have a burning need to ditch that front mech and chainrings. Or you need to winch up a 45 degree slope with a granny ring, I suppose.
CNP Recovery drink
Closed system, heat exchanger, stove and pot thing. Comes with a neoprene cosy and a built in Piezo ignitor. Just screw on your gas bottle and go!
A high powered gas-stove in lighty light-light titanium for those Everest Expedition tea-boiling moments.
Pot for to go on top of the Koro and other stoves. It’s got a built-in heat exchanger, a neoprene sleeve and is made from hard anodised aluminium. Your Pot Noodle never arrived in such style.

Ion Clash Sunglasses
Jenn looks startled in these Ion sunnies. That label can’t help.
Leatt Body Armour
Leatt Elbow Guard 3DF Airflex
Barney does his special “I can eat apples using my elbows” party trick in these elbow pads. The flexy, rubbery stuff deforms to deflect impacts. The lightweight pads have a 6mm profile, silicone lamination to keep the pad in place and MoistureCool wicking fabric. Much the same as the…
Leatt 3DF Airflex knee guards
The idea is to have a super flexy, comfortable all-day set of pads which will still give you a degree of protection if things go squirrely. If you need something a little more.. burly, you could always try the..
Leatt Knee Guard 3DF Hybrid
These have soft comfortable 3DF foam underneath, with a hard shell for extra protection when that sweet jump goes wrong. Not for if you need to fall to your knees in despair in the office, Barney.
Elbow Guard Airflex: £59.99
Knee Guard Airflex: £75.99
Knee Guard Hybrid: £69.99
Sidewinder Polar Glove
Air Mesh fabric with a fleecy liner and wind-resistant gussets (I had to put that in).
Fox Attack Q4 Short
A nice, YELLOW technical short from Fox. Strategic venting and a detachable liner.
Bionic Trail LT Softshell
The same fabric as the shorts, apparently. Lots of lovely detailing too.
All from Fox
Oooh, somebody’s got lots of travelling in the pipeline! Either that or Jorji needs to hide a body or two until she can find an appropriate metal foundry.
EVOC Terminal bag (the little one)
Ominous sounding name, that…
EVOC World Traveller (the big one)
…and some lightweight threads for sunshine shredding. Anyone would think Jorji was off somewhere hot. Either that or she’s fostering her delusions in the quagmire of The Valley with a sunlamp from Argos.
EVOC bike shorts in sky blue
EVOC 2015 short sleeve mesh jersey in lime
All from Silverfish.
Chipps’ Japanese Box Of Joy
From: The Japan Centre
That’s about it for this week. Time to get out the plastic bags, gaffer tape them to our legs and keep our tootsies nice and dry in the glop. Or just hanging around the office – have a good weekend!
