Compact and lightweight tyre levers with a snap-together shape for fitting into your saddle bag or back pocket. Featuring a unique thin-lip for prying and dual groove design to hook into your spokes. Strong enough to remove even the most stubborn tyres.

" When you are fumbling around in your seatpak, a tyre lever which was not as black as midnight, could be beneficial.
How about luminous green? I bought a 12" EP by an obscure bunch of jerks named 'Kraftwerk', which came in a luminous green pressing. It would have been a lot easier to find than these levers!
However it wouldn't have helped at all replacing tyres. These levers work. But "

" My first Goretex uninsulated jacket. Feels and looks great, 5 hour ride in light rain, no obvious problems, tiny bit moist inside but that can be regulated by the amount of clothing you wear underneath,
The zip does feel a bit flimsy, and I think that may be the first part to develop a fault. It is very tempting to wear it on any rainy day even not on a bike, but to conserve the zip life I should try to limit using it to cycling only.
Special mention for the hood. It can be happily used under your bike helmet, and doesn't obviously limit head movement, just a tad. "

" 5 hour ride in light rain, toasty and dry underneath (worn over bib longs). Generous reflective details. The cuffs could do with being adjustable (they are elasticated, but seem to compress my legs too much.
For my personal preference, they could have done with being a tad deeper between the crotch and the waistband, which like the cuffs, is not adjustable although elasticated in two sections. Often feel like they are slipping down and have to hitch them up again. Or perhaps I'm losing weight!
Flimsy af, but ultimately good.
Don't forget they are very translucent! "

" Waterproof and breathable over a 5 hour ride in light rain. Stood in a puddle - dry feet! Nice hi-viz colour, only complaint - the 'non silicone' hydrostop band at the top left me in agony. It was like getting a chinese burn. Possibly with a barrier cream it might be viable; for now I'll have to roll the top over so that the band is on the outside. One star off for this. "

" These are the first cycling glasses I owned since parting with my original Oakleys some 20 years ago. I mainly wanted some eye protection for city commuting, where particles of inappropriate language are easily swept into your eyes. Since the lenses aren't as close to the cheeks as possible, this function hasn't performed perfectly. However the orange lenses work pretty well in poor weather, and seem to enhance the image contrast. Haven't tried the clear lenses yet, and I live in dread of the sunny day when the red mirrored lenses have to come out - wayyy too posey for me. Fairly comfy fit, lens swap is not particularly fiddly, and the fitted case is a nice touch, though too bulky to take out on the road. "

" Wiggle advertise this jacket as Waterproof AND Breathable. Well, it satisfies those two criteria about as well as a colander.
In all fairness though, this is a cheeeep jacket. In other news, it fits my lanky frame pretty well.
If it had a few tiny vents everything would have been hunky dory. "
Pros: Attractive, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Not Enough Features, it sure isn't breathable

Bell have designed the Stratus road bike helmet to be light weight and well ventilated with the same sleek styling as the pro-level Zephyr making it a perfect choice for those long, tough weekend rides.
 

Is the lining removable/replaceable?

Some helmets come supplied with a second lining that can be installed while the original is in the washing machine - what’s supplied?
