Wahoo Speedplay Pedals: All You Need To Know

Stu Bowers Tuesday, March 16, 2021 - 12:31 After laying practically dormant for a few years the takeover by Wahoo should see Speedplay re-emerge as a major player in the pedal market £134.99-£379.99 Speedplay founder Richard Bryne is said to have such a passion for bicycle pedals that he has a personal collection of well over 300 pairs, none of which, however, look like the ones he actually designed and created back in the late 1980s. Often referred to as the ‘lollipop pedals’, Speedplay launched in 1991, but the design wasn’t an instant hit. Their form was based entirely on solving the cleat-pedal interface from an engineering standpoint, rather than paying lip service to trends and/or predisposition over how a pedal ‘ought’ to look. Watch: First look at the new Wahoo Speedplay pedals But the pedal’s diminutive size raised questions over whether it could offer sufficient support, compared to the ...

Lazer Sphere Mips Helmet Review

Paul Norman Tuesday, March 16, 2021 - 09:15 The Lazer Sphere Mips brings high-end tech in a mid-priced helmet 4.0 / 5 £119.99 The new Lazer Sphere helmet brings you many of Lazer’s high-end features with a more wallet-friendly £120 price tag. That starts with the Advanced Rollsys adjustment system. Rather than the more typical dial on the rear of the cradle, the fit is changed with a knurled wheel that sits in the top rear of the shell. Image 5 of 5 Image 5 of 5 It’s a feature that Lazer has used extensively on its higher priced helmets like the Z1 and the Genesis, and leads to easy adjustment and a smarter, cleaner look to the rear of the helmet. In the Lazer Sphere it allows the helmet’s shell to make a lower arc at the back of the head, as there’s no need to make space for ...

Cinelli Palio Disc Review

Marc Abbott Tuesday, March 16, 2021 - 09:15 Italian brand’s latest 10-speed racer is near-perfect for pacy springtime riding 4.0 / 5 £1,999 You’ve got to hand it to Italian designers. The newest road bike to hit UK shores from Milanese brand Cinelli – the Palio Disc – appears to be decorated with miiltary-style dazzle-camo… or is it lightning bolts? The truth is even more out-there: this toned down grey version (along with the much more garish yellow/red design available) wears a paintjob based on the clothing and team banners of riders in the Palio di Siena horse races. Yes, twice a year – in the height of the Tuscan summertime – the central square of Siena (yes, the one which also hosts the finish line of Strade Bianche ) is given over to frantic horse races. Where’s the connection with cycling? Your guess is as good as mine. And ...
