There’s a real science behind the kit and equipment that cyclists use these days. From new compnds of tyres, refined carbon processes to produce lighter bikes and accessories, fabric tech, and a greater physiological understanding of feet- yes feet! All of this knowledge allows brands to develop products that not only look great, but which also give you performance perfection.
We think that it’s time to dedicate a few articles to this, to give you a better understanding of it all, and to help you to make choices; especially with the costs involved in kitting yourself out these days. This new section of Pedalnorth will bring information and advice on things like fabric technology, mechanical tech, and of course your feet, so that you know what is best for you and why. Let’s get started then.
In order to develo this, we’ll be working with people from leading brands such as Megmeister, Free Flow Technologies, DS Pro Ladies Brand, ALÉ and Lake Shoes, each with their own key areas to pass on advice to you, the consumer.
We’ve put together a great team of experts, to make sure that we give you the best advice and information about the latest developments and how technology in all areas can help you to maximise your cycling. Led by our own Larisa, we’ll be bringing you a series of informative articles and reviews about all aspects of cycle tech.
