There is a huge array of fitness products being marketed to cyclists. Some are boundary pushing, others simply add to their already saturated category. 

Ever curious, there is always something new which we’re testing out and seeing whether or not it works for us. From energy drinks, gels and supplements to training equipment, recovery aids and kit - there is a lot to experiment with!
