Here is our pick of the new arrivals in the office this week, all ready for testing, including bar end lights and Reynolds 531 tee shirts

NeilPryde Nazaré SL

New Zealand bike brand NeilPryde says that its Nazaré SL aero bike is everything a state of the art superbike should be, citing its light weight, speed and comfort. Our test bike comes kitted out with Shimano Dura-Ace and Fulcrum Racing Quattro Carbon wheelset. We’ll be seeing how it measures up.

Cateye Orb bar end lights

We’ll be replacing our bar ends with these lights which have just come in for test. They are made of alloy and run on a couple of coin cells and offer flashing and constant modes, to up your visibility on dark commutes, or just the average winter training ride.

Northwave Flash Arctic GTX cycling shoes

These full-on winter cycling shoes from Northwave come with a high ankle cuff and an integrated Goretex waterproof breathable membrane. They sit on Northwave’s carbon reinforced plastic sole.
