Kit For Heads, Hands & Feet

The most important areas of your kit choices are the head, hands and feet. Often secondary to cyclists, it’s critical to get these items right.

Working across the cycle industry, we’ve lined up a small selection of the best items for you, from Kask and Met helmets in Italy, to Lake Shoes, and GripGrab gloves and accessories. These are in our mind the leading items to put in your own cycle wardrobe.

We’ll be looking at top brands, such as Scicon, Evoc, B&W, Thule, Inno and Yakima, to bring you only the very best choices for your precious bike.

These days, with so much carbon around, we need to take extra care, and frame protection has to be top of the list. That’s we we recommend bike carriers that hold the wheel rather than the frame.

Bristol based Tailfin have totally re-invented Bike Touring, with their unique carbon pannier that doesn’t touch the precious frame. We tested it on France on a long haul, and it really is a game changer.

Anyway, take a look below and get yourself kitted out for your own global cycling trip.
