Kit for Head, 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.

Style and performance doesn’t stop at cycling jerseys and shorts. It has to cover you from head to toe, and that’s why Larisa and the team want to show you the helmets, gloves, socks and shoes that finish off their cycling wardrobes.

Taking our time to research brands, we only show you the kit that we’d happily use for ourselves, and which gives the best performance – and style 😉 Just ask Larisa!

In the harshest of conditions you need the best of kit. Riding in the Yorkshire Dales in winter can be icy cold and snow bound at times, and these are the conditions for which this overshoe has been designed.

These really are a well thought out and we’ll made glove. Using a one piece, strong and stretchy Tavolara fabric on the back of the hand, with a long pull on tab that’s part of the palm cloth, they’re extremely light and very well fitted.

GripGrab Shark Gloves

Not everyone likes riding with gloves on year round, but since your hands are one of the first things you thrust out to arrest your fall in the event you come off your bike then its far better to trash a pair of gloves than the skin on your hands!

GripGrab Windster Gloves

I like to be warm. There's nothing wrong with this, and these great winter gloves from Danish brand GripGrab do the job extremely well.

GripGrab Roadster Gloves

Danish brand GripGrab doesn’t make a bad glove, or anything else that's not top quality to be frank. These Roadster summer gloves are a good example of what they do produce - great quality gear for the serious cyclist or for the club rider that simply wants to be sure that they gear will perform.

GripGrab Racing Glove

Made with the usual GripGrab attention to detail, they've gone a stage further this year, adding well thought out silicone gel inserts on the inside of the fingers, holding the glove firmly in place as you gain maximum control of the gears and brake levers, and all manner of other devices.

There are some items of cycling gear that often get overlooked, but which are critical when looked at; gloves is one such item. A good pair will keep us warm, dry, protect us in falls, and allow us to use our smart devices whilst wearing them

GripGrab Aero TT Glove

We've spent the summer looking at several gloves from Danish brand GripGrab, and their Aero TT gloves are a real stand out item. There's nothing fancy about GripGrab, they simply design items to do as required, and these gloves fit ... well, like a glove.
