We've got aggressive, e-bike ready rubber in from new tyre brand Wolfpack, plus more pumps and tools from Fabric. There's also a winter weather-proof pack from Dakine make to keep those snacks dry as well as a budget lid with MIPS from Lazer that comes in at just £60. Dig in.....
Dakine Seeker 10L
The Dakine Seeker is a sleek 10l trail pack that also offers weatherproof storage, helmet carry straps and a breakable back panel too. Aimed at autumn/winter riding the tough exterior should keep the rain out, to a certain extent at least, keeping your sarnies dry.
Lazer Chiru MIPS helmet
Budget friendly and with MIPS too, the Lazer Chiru looks to be a great starter helmet. There's Lazer's TS+ retention system with Adjustable Head Basket (cradle) plus deep rear coverage too. We found the recently tested Impala super comfy, will the Chiru be the same?
Fabric CO2 lever kit
made to mount directly to your bike, this CO2 cannister and tyre lever kit is a simple, small piece of kit to attach to your seat tube. Aimed at riders with fixed seat posts and using either Schrader or presta valves, the kit includes: 2 x 16g CO2 cartridge, 2 x Reinforced glass fibre tyre levers, 2 x Durable silicone band to keep it all in place.
Fabric Millibar pump
We've got a big old test of mini pumps on the go and this one from Fabric is the latest in the lineup to be tested. The Millibar is a dual valve pump that will inflate tyres up to 40PSI so best for mountain bikers. There's an integrated, retractable head on a hose which should prevent the user bending of braking valves when pumping, we like the look of this one!
Wolfpack Enduro 27.5 x 2.6" tyre
In addition to the cross-country tyres we have on test from the new brand, Wolfpack, we also have these 27.5 x 2.6" Enduro tyres. It's the most aggressive tyre the brand make and is offered in either a 29er or a 27.5 size with 2.4 or 2.6 options. With the founder and designer a 'compounder' with a history of mixing different rubber compounds and having been responsible for things such as the Continental Black Chill compounds, worked on the Specialized Gripton compound and been the man in charge of the Schwable Addix programme, we were keen to see the tyres he produced when he is let loose under his own stream.
