Cannondale SystemSix – Beyond Aero:

When the Cannondale SystemSix was launched late last year it ended a long run of speculation about when, and in what form, Cannondale would step into the world of aero bikes. They definitely entered the market with a bang, producing the lowest-drag, most efficient, all-around fastest UCI-legal road bike on the market. Despite this Cannondale have made sure not to limit the SystemSix by calling it an 'aero bike'. As Cannondale themselves put it "The SystemSix makes every rider faster. You can call it free speed, or aerodynamic advantage. We call it the culmination of a system-wide approach to speed, efficiency [...]

Feature – Kinesis Tripster AT

Kinesis drew on years of experience and knowledge gained from their now legendary Tripster ATR in the creation of the Tripster AT, and from the first ride we knew this bike would have no problem living up to its 'All Terrain' name. With a fresh new look and a few tweaks the 2019 model is better than ever. If you're looking for a cutting edge adventure bike with heaps of versatility then look no further. Originally developed as a trans-continental all-road racing bike, the Tripster AT is stunningly quick across all surfaces, and balances this beautifully with comfort and [...]

Bianchi Aria vs. Orbea Gain:

Over the past couple of years we have seen the rise of the e-Bike, with hugely enhanced technology leading to improved motor capability and the elimination of drag, but it's the new age of performance road e-bikes has taken the market by storm. It's not often we are truly stunned by the release of a new bike, but both the Orbea Gain and then the Aria e-Road from Bianchi did just this.  E-Bikes that ride just like a traditional pedal bike, but with the added bonus of pedal assistance e-bike capabilities, seemed too good to be true. At first [...]
