>>> Buyer’s guide to winter tyres

40% less rolling resistance, better grip, improved puncture resistance and better wear. Amazing properties for a new tyre, but these are advantages claimed for Vittoria’s new Corsa, which incorporates wonder material graphene into the tyre’s structure. We’ve tested them and been impressed.

Topeak Micro Rocket AL minipump

Small enough to pack and forget, the Micro Rocket will still get you home

Small enough to pack and forget, the Micro Rocket will still get you home

>>> Buyer’s guide to minipumps

Although a CO2 inflator will get you back on the road quickly if you do get a flat, what do you do if you run out of gas? It’s useful to have a backup pump. The Topeak is mini enough to fit in a saddle pack and light enough not to notice, but still efficient enough to get a tyre up to get-you-home pressure. A better option than a walk home.

Rapha Shadow short sleeved jersey

Rapha's Shadow kit is waterproof, breathable and very light

Rapha’s Shadow kit is waterproof, breathable and very light

>>> Better than Castelli’s Gabba? Wet weather racing jackets on test

Technical race kit is getting ever more sophisticated and Rapha’s entry – as developed for Team Sky – has a lot to recommend it, albeit at an eye-watering price. It’s made from a very light fabric which is waterproof treated, so it’s resistant to the rain and windproof without getting too hot. But it still manages the trick of being stretchy and breathable, so you won’t end up drenched from the inside out either.

Price: £220.00
