5 cool things from Assos, Giro, Asgard and Flare Clothing
We've been treated to more hot and sunny weather down south this week which pleases us greatly! It's been a week well spent remembering how to ride dusty trails and having a post ride beer rather than taking on the post-ride bike wash. Hello summer, nice to see you and good timing too, we've got new threads on test from Assos, Flare Clothing and Giro, plus an Asgard storage shed for those dusty bikes.
Assos XC MTB gear
More commonly worn by the road half of the off.road.cc/road.cc office, now we've got out own set of premium bike clothing. Assos has just launched a small range of cross-country mountain bike gear for men and for women, which consists of short sleeve zip up jersey's and bib shorts, it's safe to say it's the shorts we are most excited about, we hope they are as comfy as the road.cc team reckon they will be.
Asgard Access E Plus Storage Shed
Having no garage poses a slight problem where bike storage is concerned, we take a look at the Asgard Access E Plus Bike Storage Shed as an alternative to the bikes living in a spare room!
Giro Chamber II SPD Shoes
We told you last week all about the new Giro flat shoes and this week it is the turn of the SPD's. We will be testing the revised Giro Chamber II's which keep the water-resistant reinforced microfiber upper and full Vibram® Megagrip™ rubber outsole and this time includes a 10mm cleat setback and a Tri-Mold construction that optimizes stiffness and flex for each zone of the foot.
