A load of new products have landed on our desks over the past couple of weeks, including a great-looking multi-tool from Knog, some simple backup lights from Cateye, the latest winter kit from Briko and a kitbag from Overboard that can be transformed into a rucksack.
Knog Tool 20
The Knog Tool 20 looks good in blue, is pretty small and has a plethora of tools including Allen keys, Phillips head screwdriver, flat head screwdriver, chain tool, bottle opener and more. RRP is £32.99 (US$39).
Cateye Loop lightset
These new LEDs from Cateye are easy to fix – you simply stretch the rubber loop around your bars or seatpost and clip it into place – and offer better side visibility than models costing 10 times as much. RRP is £20 a set.
We wouldn’t advise using them as your only light, but they make excellent back-ups, especially if you run a powerful front light with poor side visibility. The mounting system means you can attach the front light to your head tube if your bars are cluttered.
Briko jacket and tights
This Racing Jacket from Briko looks like it’ll be just the ticket for hitting the road in cold, windy and wet conditions. While the colours might not be to everyone’s taste (it’s also available in black/yellow and black/orange), it’s waterproof, windproof and has a high-viz strip on the rear. RRP is €170 (approx £150/$240).
A perfect pairing for the jacket are these Thermofit bibs with a Comfort Stretch pad, a CoolMax antibacterial pad and some useful high viz bits on the ankle area. RRP TBC.
OverBoard 90l Adventure Duffel Bag
This Adventure Duffel Bag from OverBoard is made from water-resistant PVC tarpaulin, so it should be just the thing for wet race weekends and lugging muddy kit around.
It can be transformed from a holdall into a rucksack using the straps provided, adding a bit of versatility, and compression straps and internal pockets help keep all your gear in place. Price is £49.99.
