We've just had a load of new Continental tyres drop at the office, plus some Morvelo kit for the colder days and a multi sport watch from Sigma with which we are looking forward to testing the GPS function. There's also some Cush Core for gravel wheels and tyres which we are going to hand over to our main gravel man, Dave plus a neat tool organiser from Lezyne... dig in.
Sigma iD.FREE multisport watch
This multisport watch records six different sports to include cycling, it piqued our interest due to the mapping in conjunction with Komoot, GPS capabilities and the incident alert feature. It's also an activity tracker with the associated app which appears to be pretty popular lately.
Continental Terra gravel tyres
We told you all about Continental entering the gravel bike tyre market back in August this year, soon after we were sent tyres for test. We have the knobblier Terra Trail tyre in 650b x 40c and the faster rolling Terra Speed tyre in 700 x 40c size. We've got a pair of each and both look pretty similar in tread but look closer and you'll see the larger knobs of the Terra Trail marking it out for muddier, rougher conditions.
Morvelo women's winter warmers
Heading into winter (I'm sorry) we've got some women's gear for chillier rides from Morvelo. Here there's a Col women's baselayer, some Stealth Stormshield bib knickers which are fleece backed and have been treated to be water resistant plus one of the brands new loose fit Digger MTB jersey's.
- Digger jersey - £45
- Col Baselayer - £35
- Stealth Stormshield bib knickers - £95
Lezyne Sendit Caddy
Lezyne has sent us a neat solution to keeping your multitool and tyre levers close at hand with that spare tube strapped to your frame. The Sendit Caddy comprises of neoprene pouch with three compartments plus a strap to hold the tube and secure it to your bike. The strap is capable of holding up to one 25g CO2 cartridge and a 29” mountain bike tube, plus a small multi-tool and tire levers.
We are fans of the Cush Core tyre inserts here at off-road.cc, having tested the 'Pro' model recently on 30mm wide mountain bike tyres. We've now got a set in designed specifically for gravel or cyclocross bikes with 700c wheels. The kit fits tyre widths from 33mm to 46mm with inner rim widths of 19mm to 26mm and weighs 110g per insert.
