This week we've got a true mix of kit featuring Schwalbe's brand new gravel tyres, helmets from Rockrider, and Mucky Nutz's fresh frame protection making their way through the office. Nukeproof has also been kind enough to bung us the new 2021 summer collection to put through its paces.
Mucky Nutz Skinz
£20 - £25
Known for the range of eco-friendly mudguards, Mucky Nutz has moved into the frame protection game with three new kits. With prices starting at £20, there are fork, frame and chain, and seatstay kits in a handful of neat designs with both gloss and matt finishes. We've got each of the packs with no design and gloss finishes.
Rockrider MTB ST 500 helmet
Rockrider's MTB ST 500 helmet looks great for the cash, featuring 17 vents and extended coverage, ideal for the rigors of mountain biking. It also comes with removable foam pads inside and a clip for a VlOO light.
Schwalbe G-One R
The G-One R is a fresh addition to Schwalbe's range and it promises to be lighter, roll faster, and offer more grip than the existing G-One. It uses tech that's found on the brand's Pro One range of road tyres with the semi-transparent super-race carcass that's said to be more pliable, resulting in lower rolling resistance. It's aimed at riders who ride light off-road terrain, gravel roads, and tarmac and it's available in 700 x 40mm, and 700 x 45mm.
Matt's been quick enough to review the G-One R already, check out what he thinks here.
Nukeproof 2021 Apparel
£25 - £70
Nukeproof has sent in heaps of kit from the newly released 2021 summer offering with short, and long sleeve jerseys, shorts, gloves, and socks from the Outland and Blackline line-ups. Blackline jerseys come sorted with full mesh backs for extra cooling and a casual cut. Whereas the Outland apparel uses moisture-managing DriRelease tech which, rather than a chemical coating, is built into the threads of the garment.
Forclaz First Aid Kit 100
An incredibly important bit of kit that we never really want to put to the test is the Forclaz First Aid Kit 100. Packed with 41 pieces, it's got all of the bits you'll need to take care of small grazes and wounds in a reasonably small pouch.
