Our top picks

Vitus Razor VR Sora

This bike is one of our strongest recommendations for its price point. The 9-speed drivetrain gives the same wide range as an 11-speed system, so you'll be covered for all the same climbs and descents. 

.

The disc brakes are mechanical, but the TRP Spyres are a notably good model, being easier to prevent rubbing than with hydraulics. Bear in mind that the stock pads and brake housing aren't the best – upgrading these will see a step change in their performance.

4iiii Precision 105 R7000 Powermeter (opens in new tab)

One of the cheapest and easiest ways of getting power meter readings from a Shimano equipped bike is through a left hand power crank. If you have a couple of bikes, getting two of these would save you faff over one set of power pedals – and the price would be comparable too.

Endura Pro SL PrimaLoft Gilet II

It’s incredible how much of a difference keeping your core warm makes. For days with a big swing in temperatures, the insulated and windproof baffles will keep you toasty in the cold, but can be packed down into a jersey pocket when the sun comes out.

Garmin Edge 530 (opens in new tab)

Arguably the best value Garmin headunit out there. Matching the size of the 830, it treads the balance between visibility of the screen and not being too big. 

The main area where it differs from the higher tier headunits is that it doesn’t have a touchscreen, but considering how much cheaper it is, that’s not a bad trade at all.

dhb Dorica Road Shoe (opens in new tab)

Laces are making something of a come-back for their range of adjustability and bombproof simplicity – to replace a lace is far easier than mending a Boa dial or Velcro strap. The simple construction also means more money can be invested in other parts of the shoe, such as the sole.

Smith Flywheel ChromaPop Sunglasses

More than just a trend, large sunglasses do provide so tangible benefits. Pros use them to aid their poker face on long and challenging climbs, while everyday rides can appreciate how much more effective they are at keeping grit and flies from getting into your eyes.

Rondo Hvrt CF 2 road bike

On the face of it, this might look like just another carbon aero bike, but the Hvrt CF 2 has a pretty neat trick up its sleeve. Although the clearances for 700c wheels go up to just 30mm, swap in a set of 650b hoops and you can be rolling with 47mm.

It's essentially two bikes in one – an aero road bike and a capable gravel bike. The Shimano 105 groupset lends itself pretty neatly to either discipline with its powerful hydraulic disc brakes and smooth shifting. However the gearing is definitely more road oriented, so you might want to swap out the chainrings and cassette.

UK: View deal at Sigma Sports | £3,699.00 £2,959.00 (opens in new tab)


Fuji Jari Carbon 1.1 Gravel Bike

Equipped with Shimano’s excellent 2x11 GRX groupset, the hydraulic disc brakes deliver assured stopping, while the jumps between the gears are kept relatively tight. The DT Swiss G1800 wheels may lack some of the bells and whistles of the higher tier options, but they are pretty bombproof nevertheless.

With all the bottle bosses you could possible dream of bedecking the down tube, seat tube and fork legs, the Jari is more than ready for a multiday trip

UK: View deal at Wiggle | £3,499.99 £2,619.99 (opens in new tab)

Vitus Vitesse EVO CR eTap

We were really impressed by Vitus' updated Vitesse frame when we had one in on test. Lightweight and responsive, it punched well above its modest price tag. This build comes with SRAM's Rival AXS 12-speed electronic shifting groupset and hydraulic disc brakes.

UK: View deal at Wiggle | £3,199.99 £2,879.99 (opens in new tab)



Co-op Cycles REV 12 Kids' Balance Bike

A balance bike is a much better first ride than anything with stabilisers, as it gets kids used to the sensation of staying upright on two wheels – making the transition to cranks and pedals much quicker and easier.

This model is designed for children aged 2+ and weighing less than 60 lbs.

USA: View deal at REI | $139.00 $110.93 (opens in new tab)

Public Bikes R18 Drop Bar

The R18 represents a tasteful elision of classic styling and functionality with modern ease of use. 

The frame is a robust chromoly/4130 steel with easy-to-access external cable routing and cheap-to-maintain rim brakes. Topping things off are the silver polished alloy fenders.

But of the modern, the integrated shift-brake levers make changing gear the breeze we've come to expect –and while the A-headset might not light up your ride on a day-to-day basis, you will be thankful should you wish to adjust the stack height or swap in a different stem.

USA: View deal at Mike's Bikes | $1,100.00 $999.99 (opens in new tab)

Fuji Jari 1.3 Gravel Bike

Bedecked in a plethora of mounts – and with fully mechanical SRAM shifting – this is a gravel bike suited to the rigours of long distance bikepacking. 

The way that robust simplicity lends itself to trailside fixability can be a much more desirable feature than the flashiness of electronic and hydraulic equivalents. 

USA: View deal at Wiggle | $2,095.00 $1,605.00 (opens in new tab)

UK: View deal at Wiggle | £1,649.99 £1,234.99 (opens in new tab)



Orbea Gain M20 e-bike

The Orbea Gain is part of that new bread of e-bikes with smaller batteries and motors. At first glance, it's almost indistinguishable from its non-electric cousins and the level of assistance is intended to complement your ride, rather than detract from your effort. 

The idea is more to level the playing field with those who have more time for training – opening up longer rides and bigger climbs and generally exploring further.

Castelli Transition 2 Jacket

Designed, as the name would suggest, for the transitional seasons between full summer and deep winter, this jacket is designed to provide some resistance from cold winds, but without the full on bulk of a dedicated winter jacket.

Castelli Free Protect Race Bib Short - Men's

There are two conflicting demands when it comes to race shorts. On the one hand, you want something that is lightweight, cool and comfortable, but on the other, you want something that will offer a bit of protection should you accidently end up pushing past your limits.

By working with pro riders like Chris Froome, that’s just what Castelli has done – created a short which has high enough performance for racing, but is still robust enough to withstand a crash.

UK: View item at Wiggle | Was £200.00, now £99.00 (opens in new tab)

GORE Wear C5 GORE-TEX Active Jacket (opens in new tab)

dhb Classic Thermal Bib Tights

dhb's clothing range continues to impress us with its blend of quality and relatively low cost. At this price point, you don't get the benefits of the highly technical fabrics and chamois more expensive models can offer – but you do get a stretchy, fleece-lined set of tights with a temperature rating of down to 41°F (5°C) in a package that's designed for rides up to three hours in length.

Combining a water-resistant outer with a fleece-backed lining, this will quickly become your go to jersey with its versatile application.

dhb Aeron Lab Featherlight Short Sleeve Jersey - men's

Designed for challenging mountain conditions where you can go from sweating in the full sun, grinding slowing uphill, to blasting down the other side at high speed and in the rain.

At 95g in a size medium, it isn’t much heavier than Castelli’s indoor specific jersey at 81g. But even then, it is SPF 50 rated, has been given a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment, the tight weave offers some wind resistance, while still being breathable and wicking.
