Scott Stego Plus helmet
Looking like the ultimate enduro open face lid, the Scott Stego Plus helmet isfeature packed. Coming with MIPS, low coverage at the rear, plus their 360 cradle fit system and a spare peak which has an integrated camera mount. It doesn't come cheap but it does come with lots of style.
Garmin Vivoactive 4
Not yet reviwed on off-road.cc are GPS 'wearables', so here we dive in with a Garmin Vivoactive 4. It's a cross over with a GPS watch and lifestyle/activity tracker watch built to track health and fitmess goals as well as track and record bikes rides, walks, hikes, runs and much more. We are intrigued to see how the watch compares to a good old bike mounted GPS. This one is middle of the road with the price in mind. It'll track your activies and sleep and track your heart rate and calories as well as the additional features of 'Garmin Pay', on screen atimated gym workouts, plus connect to your phone for music controls and safety tracking feaures.
Garmin Edge 530
Leading on from our review of the Edge 130 Plus, we've got its bigger brother in on test, the Edge 530. It's got a larger, colour screen for better mapping and it connect to the Trailforks app, meaning we should never be left in the dark about the location of any trail head. There's all the usual workout and training features as well as those new mountian bike dynamics to measure how far you jump on each ride, plus there's incident detection and a bike alarm to tell you if your bikes moves when it shouldn't.
Ruzer Pro Tubeless Repair Kit
New fron Ruzer Pro, a brand specialzing in bike pumps, tools and sunglasses, is their Tubeless Repair kit. A new take on the tubeless bungs in a small light capsule to keep in your back pack or bum bag. It's only 7cm long and comes with 10 bungs and a plugging tool in the case for £18.
Scott Shield glasses
Larger glasses are fashionable at the moment, and for good reason too, they keep lots of muck out grit out of your eyes and vision. The Scott Shield glasses come in with a mssive, frameless design, the coverage looks huge! There are interchangeable lenses, we've got one suitable for dark forests as well as this sunglasses lens and will be taking them out on test soon.
