" It's ok this. I'm a bit disappointed by how much it slops to one side or the other. I somehow expected more from scicon. They done some lovely things before. Velcro fiddly. "

" I bought a pair of these a long time ago and they were a bit shapeless and rolled up easily under bibs.
These new ones are really good; tight fit, slinky, a proper little pad inside. "

" I've bought several light brands over the years. The Exposure range are for me the 'Apple' of the bike light world; great quality and build, simple and sleek design, a bit pricey.
The Sirius is basically everything the first generation Joysticks were - but for a lot less in price.
Niggles? The bar mount is a bit flimsy - I use the Quick Release handlebar mount instead. "
Pros: Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive

" Cheap and by far the best thing is its lightness and way it squashes down really small in the back pocket.
But... it's got an irritating 'raspberry' flapping sound when hitting above 19-20mph. The arm elastic is quite loose and there's no vent in the back. It's quite short too. And the reflective bits won't last a few washes.
Good for short rides or for the first miles on a cold morning. "

" They make the GP4000s tyre - so Conti aren't going to do duff inner tubes. These are reliable and resilient. Great value.
I dig the brightly coloured little valve cap. Not easy to lose when faffing about on a muddy roadside. "

A must-have for urban night riding. The new TL-LD610 is slimmer and brighter than its predecessor, with five LEDs and three modes that maximize your visibility.

" I've always found Cateye stuff a bit lacking in cool. This latest model continues the trend. However, it's bright enough - and that's what really counts.
I bought it for the back of my rack - the fitting is simple and will fit awkward shapes. It's connection to the light itself feels a little vulnerable - but it's holding OKish after a couple of hundred miles.
Good price. "

 Castelli Nanoflex Water Resistant Arm Warmers
Castelli Nanoflex Water Resistant Arm Warmers
Warm breathable Arm warmers with Castelli's advanced Nano silicone treatment for fantastic water resistance. Nano Flex fabric behaves just like Thermoflex fabric in dry conditions, but provides unbelievable water repellency when it starts to rain.

" Bought the white ones for visibility and to look a bit sharper!
I'm as medium as they come - but ordered Large having read other reviews. Turned out to be exactly the right thing to do. Tight fitting but comfortable, all day comfort on a 21hr mini-tour.
The logos are a bit clunky. The waterproofing gave up after about 20mins during heavy rain. And the holier than thou whiteness doesn't last forever.
But, overall, really impressed. "

" I bought this to double-up with my Exposure Joystick for a low-cost bit of night time road riding. Did the job OK.
I'd describe it as a decent commuter light - a cut above the usual piffling LED stuff for just a few quid more.
Surprisingly for Lezyne, I find the build/design a bit below par. The mount is a wee bit cheap and the stubby barrel shape doesn't compliment sleek road bike bars. The run-time is a little short too. "
Pros: Great Value

" You can't deny the value/quality here. I'm no big fan of Nike sportswear - a bit 'yoof' - but this wicks superbly and fits well for cycling [it's not at all a compression - just close fit]. Long in the body - which I like - so no chance of gaps when bent down on the saddle. Feels like it will last well. "

" Just bought another one of these after last one's clip snapped. 3 years service - not bad going? I think the plastic just gave up after all the rattling.
It's a bit unsexy in design: but neat, practical and non-fussy. Solid construction. Watch out for putting mobile phones at the top - where there is an exposed screw. I cracked my screen albeit I stuffed the bag too much.
In mine it holds - just about! - inner tube, chain tool, mini allen key set, 2 x pedro tyre levers, mini inflator, 1 x Co2 canister, mini screwdriver, puncture patches, membership cards, banknote. It's a bit too stuffed with all this: but holds well enough. The tyre levers are a wee bit long for it. "
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight, Rugged

Is this offer UV resistance?

The material quite thick and opaque - so I expect it's pretty good.
