Fresh Goods Friday 482 – Who wants to test bulletproof goggles?

by 17

We have waterproof, abrasion-proof, shockproof and even bulletproof products in this week’s edition of Fresh Goods Friday. Jump in and bath in xxxx-proof goodies.

Leatt Velocity Goggle

The Velocity goggle from Leatt comes in a huge range of strap designs and lens options, but you probably can’t get this combo as they’re limited edition. Still, they do feature the same cool features and Rose lens that is available.

Officially the lens used in the Velocity are tested to Military Ballistic Impact Standard (MIL-DTL-43511D) so they should give full eye protection from stones, rocks and other debris being thrown up on the trail.

The goggle features a self-draining frame design, dual-density frame for comfort and fit, an over the glasses fit, removable nose guard and a soft carry bag included.

While we won’t be testing the bulletproof claims we will be giving the anti-fog function a whirl.

Amazfit T-Rex Smartwatch

Amazfit T-Rex Smartwatch.

During CES this week, Amazfit launched its first rugged smartwatch with outdoor specific features that are pretty good for mountain bike use. The £105 smartwatch comes with a built-in heart rate monitor, GPS, 1.3in AMOLED display, and a huge number of useful smart features.

With built-in GPS the T-Rex can be used without a smartphone for mapping rides and monitoring speed, heart rate and more, and once synced to your phone the accompanying app can be set to update Strava too.

The rugged waterproof design is designed to military specifications, is waterproof and has tough Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect the display. We’ve already got the full review of the T-Rex here.

All Mountain Style Honeycomb Frame Guard

Extra frame protection.

The last thing you want is to mark and scratch your brand-new frame and the AMX XL frame protection kit is designed just to stop that. XL is a larger size frame kit, but AMS also offers it in XXL and standard sizes to depending on your frame. Unlike some frame protectors, this is a universal fit design and super easy to install.

We have a clear honeycomb version in the office, but AMS also offers plenty of attractive designs to customise and protect your bike.

All Mountain Style

“For those Oh Shit! moments when you flat”

The OS strap is for carrying a tube, C02 cartridge and tire levers to keep you rolling when the trail takes out your tire. AMS makes each strap from a smooth material so that it won’t run and mark your frame, the design is universal AND it doesn’t way all that much either!

Oxford Aqua Evo Bags

22L Aqua Evo

The Oxford Aqua Evo range of backpacks come in different sizes and feature a super lightweight rip-stop material with a roll-top design and compression straps to stop moister making its way inside. Each bag is designed with a waterproof rating of IPX-6.

Oxford has designed the Aqua Evo range to be carried as a backpack and has designed the rear of each back with an Airtech system that improves airflow for comfort and circulation.

While both bags are black there are highly reflective components making them a great choice for commuters.

Oxford Cliqr

The Ulitmate Phone Bike Mount?

Looking for “The Ultimate Phone Bike Mount”? Well, look no further! The Oxford Cliqr system comes in both handlebar mount or forward mount and can be attached to your bike via zip ties or bolt-on clamps.

Each kit comes with the robust, lightweight glass-filled Nylon body with durable stainless steel fixtures and fittings. The very end of the clamp uses a ‘device adaptor’ that fits to your smartphone with strong 3M tape and each kit comes with 2 x adaptors so you can use multiple phones on one bike.

    The AMS frame protectors are great & regularly on offer at Blacks

    LD Mountain Centre in the early-to-mid 1990’s used to have a Persimmon Oakley Eyeshade lense that had been blasted with a shotgun. Sure the mag adverts had the same thing.

    Belinda Carlisle. Oh. God. The cheekbones!

    “Belinda Carlisle. Oh. God. The cheekbones!”

    They don’t make up for the worst voice ever committed to vinyl…

    “it doesn’t way”-hey!

    Yeah, I had one of those Oakley Blade lenses that had been shot gunned. I used to bang them in a frame and wear them down the pub now and then.

    Yep reminded me of the Oakley shotgunned frames from the 90s

    “stop moister making its way inside” hey again!

    Heh. I was going to mention the shotgunned Oakleys that sat in all their display cases around 1993 🙂

    Also, on smartphone mounts, could someone please just make a low-profile adhesive plate with a Garmin quarter turn lug on it? Saves buying into more proprietary clamps. It works really well, but I’ve always had to hack the lugs off of things to then Sugru them to the back of a phone case.

    Belinda Carlisle; fine on mute……

    So, £19 for a rubber strap? You must be ‘avin’ a larf.

    The comments section has become boringly predictable of how much !!! Don,t buy it then
    Berlinda Carlisle might not be you favourite but sweet Jesus of baby nazereth she’s far from the worst singer I’ve ever heard so why say such nonsense ………

    Yeah what is all this belinda can’t sing? Bombing along in my lancia coupe, dial turned to 11 loving it. Shame. On you!

    One comment on cost out of 13 Bud. Chill out, and I won’t be buying, cheers.

    That Amazfit T-Rex looks good for the price.
    Anyone know when and where it’ll be available?
    My TomTom Spark battery is on its way out so looking for an alternative.

    What happened to the mystery box from last week?
