Another week, another 5 cool things, and this time, we're seeing in kit from Fox, new pedals from Oxford, 7iDP's brand new gloves along with a helmet from Cube. Here's a quick look at what you can expect to be reviewed soon.
7iDP Chill and Project gloves
Last week 7iDP launched a new range of gloves and we were quick to get some in for testing. The brand sent in the top-end Chill and Project models with the former being built especially for those harsh winter conditions with the latter being the no-compromise glove with some added protection.
The chill comes made with a microfleece-backed neoprene back of hand and a Clarino palm. There are reflective graphics to help you be seen at night along with a microfibre thumb panel.
The Project is built with four-way stretch fabric and gets a protective panel built into the knuckle of the ring and pinky finger. Its cuff is adjustable thanks to a strip of hook and loop and there's silicone printing on the fingertips for grip on the brake levers.
Oxford Loam 20 pedals
Oxford's Loam 20 pedals are set to be an affordable but effective pair of pedals. For the modest sum of £30, they come with a nylon body, a Chromoly 9/16" axle, and sealed bearings. Each pedal is kitted with 20 replaceable pins and is claimed to weigh 412g per pair. There's a choice of five different colours too.
Cube MTB Strover helmet
The MTB Strover is Cube's enduro focussed open face helmet. While the helmet comes with 14 vents, an adjustable visor, COOLMAX padding, and a Fidlock buckle, what's really cool about the Strover is the flippable X-Adaptor and X-Lock mounts built into the top and back of the lid. Cube says that it weighs just 317g.
Fox Ranger Jerseys DriRelease jersey
Fresh in from Fox is the Ranger jersey. It promises style and performance on and off of the bike thanks to a soft fabric and relaxed fit. It's also built with Fox's DriRelease moisture-wicking tech that is designed to dry quickly so you can jump off your bike and remain comfy during that mid-ride cake stop.
NiteRider Lumina Max 2000 front light
Closing up this week's 5 cool things is the Lumina Max 2000 from NiteRider. It offers eight power modes with three being flash settings and the other five ranging from Walk mode, up to a full on Boost mode. As for run times, Walk mode can illuminate a trail for up to 21 hours, where as Boost can keep going for 45 minutes, only to be used when you really need it.
The buttons can be locked too, ideal if you're carrying the light loose in a bag and want to save every ounce of the light's battery level. On top, you'll find an eight level battery gauge and the Lumina Max can pair with NiteRider NiteLink and BLE Short Range Wireless devices.
