Cycling Kit Reviews

We thought it would be useful to put up a few ideas of the 'kit we like' - nothing else, just the stuff that we use and recommend. Yep, there's loads more out there and reviews all over the place. We also want to promote good kit by brands that you maybe hadn't thought of, and to look at some smaller globally based outfits along the way.

We look at loads of stuff, but if we don't think that it's worthy of at least 4 stars out of 5 then we don't put it on the site. It's only our opinion, but we like to think that we have some taste and a rough idea about good kit in terms of bike porn. Price is also everything, so when we're looking at kit, the price always comes into play.

There's also a few new ebrochures at the foot of this page, so that you can take a brief look at the people that we work with. As we progress the new ebrochures, you'll be able to click straight to their site and buy some great gear :-)

Our lead reviewer as we move forward, will be new brands editor Larisa from Romania, due to her outstanding work for our website globally - well done Larisa! As well as racing both road and mtb, Larisa is a former national sporting champion, having competed internationally as a speed skater, and brings all that athletic prowess and knowledge to her review work. We're really proud of her here at pedalnorth.
