Sprindex is a new system that allows you to adjust the resistance of the coil spring in your rear shock, without the help of tools, which avoids the main problem of coil sprung shock absorbers, that is, the lack of adjustment according to the weight and preferences of the rider. In common springs for shock absorbers, the increments are 50 pounds (in some cases, 25 lb), which does not allow a fine tuning adjustment for intermediate values. Sprindex solves this problem. How it works: the firmness of the spring is determined by its diameter, the number of turns and the type of material. Turning the Sprindex touches the number of active turns (not preload). Here you can find more information on how it differs from preload and why this is not a good parameter for adjusting the shock absorber. Sprindex springs are made of steel and are lighter than OEM springs – they have been designed to be mounted on almost every shock absorber on the market. They can be purchased at stores or directly at sprindex.com at a price of $ 140. Sprindex is a new company, created by the founders of Crankbrothers (Carl Winefordner, Frank Hermansen, Andrew Herrick) along with Richie Schley. Sprindex

With a Gore-Tex fabric and strategically taped seams, Castelli says the jacket is ‘functionally waterproof’ – meaning that they don’t claim it will keep every drop out, but they are promising it will keep you warm and comfortable in a wide range of conditions.

Evans Cycles FWE Rechargeable Light Set (450/50 Lumens) – £45 £26 Conveniently rechargeable using a simple micro-USB lead, these lights simply mount on your seat post and handlebars using silicone straps, making for a simple yet effective set up. The specs aren’t going to trouble very best road lights on the market, but with 450 lumens on the front and 50 at the back, they put out plenty of light to keep you visible on dark commutes. We probably don’t need to make the case for having lights on your bike – aside from it being a legal requirement to have lights when it’s dark, it’s also obviously a good idea for your own safety.

Evans Cycles Giro Prolight Techlace Road Shoe – £349.99 £209 You might have seen these shoes on the feet of legendary climbers like Richie Porte or BikeRadar’s Joe Norledge – the latter of whom cut the velcro straps off of his own pair like Taylor Phinney (though it’s not clear who copied who). When we reviewed them, we found them to be comfortable, ultra-light shoes – our pair came in at just 347g in a size 45. They’re also plenty stiff for racing, and well ventilated too, owing to the minimalist uppers. Buy the Giro Prolight Techlace Road Shoe with a 40% discount from Evans Cycles With its plump 50C tyres, the Genesis Fugio is fit for any terrain. Evans Cycles Genesis Fugio 20 2019 – £1,550 £1,085 Built around a double-butted chromoly frame with a carbon fork, the Genesis Fugio 20 might not be a lightweight gravel racer, but our reviewer said it will ‘roll over anything’ thanks to its massive clearance and 650b x 50mm tyres. The disc brakes are mechanical, but you do get 11-speed SRAM Apex 1, with a 42T chainring up front and a wide 11-42T cassette out back. It could be the only bike you need for riding all the way through the British winter.

Trophy of Nations, the last EWS race of the year in Finale Ligure nations saw the the United States at the top which followed by Sweden and Canada in the Men’s category. In that female category it was French domination, while in the U21 men the Italians had to surrender to the New Zealanders who took the win. Complete Results. [Press Release] – For the first time in the history of the sport UCI jerseys and medals were on offer – and their prestige was reflected in the intensity of the racing on display on Finale’s iconic trails. As riders worked together in teams of three with their fellow country men and women, the sport was turned on its head as personal ambitions were shed in pursuit of national pride. Heartbreak for Team France Five stages high in the Ligurian hills stood between the racers and the podium, and 24 different nationalities battled it out in front of thousands of fans who lined the track to cheer on their home nations. In the men’s competition, the much hyped French Team’s hopes were dashed when Florian Nicolai (Canyon Factory Racing) flatted on the very first stage. Richie Rude led the USA men to victory Team USA put the hammer down straight from the start gate, and the theme was continued throughout the race – they proved untouchable. The winning team of Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox Factory Racing), Shawn Neer ((Yeti/Fox Shox Factory Racing) and Cody Kelley rode into the finish arena to a hero’s welcome securing their place in the history books. Team Sweden put up a valiant fight, with Robin Wallner (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team) Zakarias Blom Johansen (Cube Action Team) and Alexander Kangas rewarded with second place. The podium was completed by Team Canada in third place, featuring Jesse Melamed (Rocky Mountain/Race Face Enduro Team), Remi Gauvin (Rocky Mountain/Race Face Enduro Team) and Rhys Verner (Kona Factory Racing). The perfect end to Isabeau Courdurier’s perfect season In the women’s race the times were tighter – going into the fifth and final stage of the day Team Great Britain led Team France by just under six seconds. However the combination of Isabeau Courdurier (Intense Mavic Cycles), Morgane Charre and Melanie Pugin proved too strong for the Brits, and Katy Winton (Trek Factory Racing), Bex Baraona (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team) and Becky Cook (Orbea Enduro Team) had to settle for second place. Team Canada was comprised of Miranda Miller (Kona Factory Racing), Andreane Lanthier Nadeau (Rocky Mountain/Race Face Enduro Team) and Jennifer McHugh who rode consistently for some well deserved bronze medals. In the U21 competition Team New Zealand blew away the competition, with the combination of Brady Stone, John Richardson (BBCL NZ Arapi Enduro Team) and Nils Heiniger proving unstoppable. Team Italy, (Hannes Alber, Simone Pelissero, Matteo Saccon) delighted their home crowd with a second place finish, with Canada in third after fielding a team of Kasper Woolley, Jacob Tooke and Evan Wall. Team Great Britain was triumphant in the U21 Women – with Harriet Harnden, Ellen Flewitt and Polly Henderson leading from stage one and holding it throughout the race. Team USA (Anna Newkirk, Lauren Bingham and Isabella Naughton) finished in second. There was also an Industry Trophy on offer – with some of the biggest brands in mountain biking out to prove they were the fastest in the business. In the men’s competition Julbo Eyewear fielded an unbeatable team of Jerome Clementz, Fabien Barel and Francois Bailly Maitre. In second place was Ibis Cycles, featuring Lewis Buchanan, Niklas Wallner and Evan Geankoplis. E*13 Urge BP Enduro Team took third with their team of Clement Benoit, Theo Dumas and Baptiste Gaillot. In the women’s Industry Trophy it was the aptly named Les Trois Baguettes (Julie Duvert, Estelle Charles and Morgane Jonnier) who took the win ahead of the Vittoria Team Girls (Alessia Missiaggia, Francesca Luccini, Virginia Cancellieri). In the mixed category Tribe Rocky France-Urge BP scooped the win with their team of Levy Batista, Charlotte Rey and Irenee Menjou. Second place went to Marin Bikes who fielded a team of Matt Jones, Morgane Such and Jonny Ashelford with Team Lapierre in third – Nico Vouilloz, Chloe Gallean and Yannick Pontal.
