Do you remember Space: 1999? For anyone unfamiliar with it (and at the risk of giving away my age) it was a slice of must-watch TV from the late 1970s, set in the distant future of 1999. Each week the crew of Moonbase Alpha would have wild adventures and encouter alien lifeforms as the Moon hurtled through space, having been knocked out of the Earth’s orbit after a nuclear explosion (or some other such hokum). All the main characters wore flared jumpsuits and sported voluminous sideburns. Even the women. It was brilliant.What it wasn’t was very accurate. The future of 1999 happened 20 years ago, and as far as I’m aware we still haven’t established a permanent research station on the Moon, nor built a fleet of star cruisers,…

‘In every other form of wheel-based sport, suspension is used to soak up imperfections in the road surface. Suspension helps vehicles maintain traction when going around corners even on the smoothest roads.’Specialized’s lead product engineer on the Roubaix project, John Cordoba, makes a fair point. It is this ‘smoother is faster’ rationale that the company claims has been the driving force behind its 15 years of research into frame damping. This manifested itself in the ‘Zertz’ inserts of early Roubaix models, and has developed into a full-blown hydraulic suspension unit, the Future Shock 2.0, on this latest version. Specialized S-Works Roubaix Red eTap AXS, £9,500, specialized.com ‘Our sponsored athletes wanted to use suspension in races like the Spring Classics but there were a few issues with the previous…

castelli aero race kit

Aero Race 6.0 jersey £110, Free Aero Race 4 bibshorts £150, saddleback.co.uk The Aero Race jersey and Free Aero Race bibshorts are stalwarts of Castelli’s range, having long been as popular with the weekend warrior as they are with the sponsored pro.Now that the jersey is in its sixth iteration, design updates are understandably minimal, yet are no less important for it. ‘We used CFD analysis to determine fabric placement and seam construction to make the jersey aerodynamically efficient between 30kmh and 55kmh,’ says Richard Mardle, brand director at Castelli’s UK distributor Saddleback.Castelli brand manager Steve Smith likens the bibshorts to the Porsche 911: ‘While each release looks similar, every single component has been changed.’This fourth revision sees the shorts’ panel construction undergo similar CFD analysis to the jersey,…

time osmos 15 shoes

£329, extrauk.co.uk An incredible 100 of the 180 riders at the 2000 Tour de France wore Time shoes. Unfortunately, the French brand soon found itself being muscled out of the market by the big American and Asian companies, and it languished in relative footwear obscurity until 2016. That’s when major ski boot manufacturer Rossignol purchased Time, bringing the necessary money, technology and facilities to allow the company to produce its first new pair of cycling shoes since 2013.The Osmos 15 is a high-end shoe that couples a seamless, one-piece synthetic upper with strategically placed Sensor 2+ padding (made from a specially developed foam material) on the inner sole. The outer sole is full carbon and provides a low stack height with a view to finding the sweet spot between…
