ed's letter

This year’s Tour de France celebrates the 100th anniversary of the yellow jersey – possibly the most iconic item of clothing in the history of sport. To mark the centenary, Tour organiser ASO has come up with a wheeze whereby each of the yellow jerseys handed out at the end of each stage will be emblazoned with a famous image from the past. These include landmarks of the Tour, such as the Col du Tourmalet, the Galibier and the Arc de Triomphe, as well as the Tour’s five-time winners: Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain. What this means is that if Britain’s Chris Froome is leading the GC at the end of Stage 15 this year, he will be awarded a yellow jersey with a picture of Indurain’s…

new dogma, new tricks

When the Dogma 65.1 first made headlines under Bradley Wiggins in 2012, the frame was a curvaceous affair that looked markedly different to its competitors. Its success in races meant that the distinctive design became intertwined with Pinarello’s brand identity, but then the F8 and F10 came along, and the Dogma’s flowing lines were pegged back a bit. In the new F12, though, the curves are back, and those distinctive tube shapes are in evidence once again – or an evolved version of them, anyway. Pinarello’s R&D coordinator, Michele Botteon, says this was key to improving the frame’s aerodynamics and stiffness. ‘It also had the pleasant side-effect of creating a more quintessential Dogma appearance,’ he adds. As the part of the bike that hits the wind first, it follows that most of the…

sportful super giara kit

Jersey £90, bibshorts £115, socks £23, c3products.com Gravel riding started out as an innocent endeavour: riding bikes off the beaten track with a laissez faire attitude. Sportful’s first Giara kit was designed to reflect this, with a forgiving cut and fabrics geared for comfort. But not even gravel riding can escape cyclists’ inherently competitive nature, and demand has grown for more performance-oriented clothing. As a result, the new Super Giara kit channels more of Sportful’s racing pedigree than previous designs. The Super Giara jersey takes several cues from Sportful’s Bodyfit Pro Evo jersey – as worn by Peter Sagan – possessing a much slimmer fit, laser-cut cuffs and panels shaped to suit an aggressive riding position. The typically longer duration of competitive gravel riding has been recognised as well, with the jersey…

rotor modular crankset

Aldhu cranks £225, Aldhu DM 1x chainring £124, Q-ring inner chainring £40, Q-ring outer chainring £99, DM spider £30, Aldhu DM 2x chainring £159, velotechservices.co.uk Despite the recent release of Rotor’s 1x13 groupset, the Spanish brand is really best known as purveyor of cranksets. As such, it has amassed a dizzying array of products: cranks, chainrings, power meters and axles. Compatibility could easily become a problem, but Rotor has cleverly designed each component to work as part of a modular system. Want a direct-mount 1x set-up with a power meter on a 30mm axle? Done. How about spider-mounted 2x Q-rings on a 24mm axle? No problem. It means a rider should be able to assemble a set-up to suit any bike or riding preference. What’s more, they should be able to upgrade…

time xpro10 pedals

£144.99, time-sport.com Just shy of £145 will usually buy you all but the most premium pedals in most brands’ ranges, but in Time’s Xpro series it only gets you on the bottom rung of a ladder that rises to the £400 Xpro15s, in all their ceramic-bearing, titanium-axled glory. That isn’t to say the Xpro10s are entry-level. The axle is hollow steel and the pedal body is carbon composite, as is the blade that provides the spring tension. It means that each pedal weighs a competitively low 113g despite having a claimed 725mm2 contact surface with Time’s proprietary ‘Bioposition’ cleats. They even have a fairing that covers the pedal to help with aerodynamics – not something usually found on the cheapest pedals in a range.…
