ed's letter

It is the curse of monthly magazines. A two-week time lag between sending the finished pages to the printer and the magazine hitting the newsagent shelves means that any predictions we make about upcoming events are almost certainly going to be overturned and rendered bogus in the intervening period. Take last issue. In my Ed’s Letter, I confidently predicted a fifth Tour win for Chris Froome, waxing lyrical about how he would join the pantheon of all-time greats. No sooner had I pushed the big red button that whisks the final pages off to the printer than Froome decides to blow his nose while descending at 65kmh on a TT bike. One gust of wind later and Froome’s Tour chances lie crumpled in a gutter. For the next few days, the talk…

american flyer

Building an aero bike is easy,’ says Bob Parlee, company founder and the RZ7’s lead engineer. ‘But building an aero bike that rides well is a different thing altogether. It’s hard.’ It’s also fair to say Parlee’s task in designing the RZ7 was made harder still by the standard of the bikes preceding it in the American brand’s stable. ‘Parlees are famed for their ride quality so this one had to be no different, despite being more aerodynamically efficient than any road bike we have built before,’ says Parlee. He believes the brand has succeeded in making a bike with a ride quality similar to the Altum – its best-selling bike for the past three years – despite it being 17% more aerodynamic and 7% stiffer. Parlee claims the success of the…

isadore alternative kit

Jersey £125, bibshorts £135, isadore.com With a claim reminiscent of a certain Danish beer company, Isadore is promoting its new Alternative bibshorts as being ‘probably the bibshorts with the lowest environmental impact in the world’. The company’s founders, former WorldTour riders and brothers Martin and Peter Velits, say the statement refelects the fact that Isadore’s Alternative collection is made from recycled material in the Czech Republic. The Alternative jersey, for example, is made from two ‘technical Italian mesh fabrics’ that have been knitted with yarns from recycled fabrics. Its patterned designs were created by artists local to Isadore’s Slovakian HQ and the jersey has been treated with HeiQ, an anti-odour technology that its Swiss developer claims helps the environment by reducing the amount of washing required. The Alternative bibshorts are made from two Italian…

100% s3 sunglasses

£179.99, madison.co.uk Fittingly, 100%’s new S3 sunglasses take inspiration from three models that have come before them. They have the nose bridge and intake vents of the Speedcraft, the rimless lower lens of the S2 and the coverage of the massive Glendale. 100% says the main benefits of this combination are ventilation and an unrestricted field of vision. The lens is scratch-resistant, hydrophobic and oleophobic, so repels oil, dirt and water. What’s more, the HiPER variant shown here boosts contrast so road surfaces stand out and it’s easier to transition from light into shade at speed. This will be useful, as anyone hoping to pull off glasses this bold had better be prepared to ride fast.…
