Tech of the Week: a titanium Ribble, aero helmets and…Fustle

What's new in the world of cycling tech over the last seven days

Fustle, a new brand from Northern Ireland

The Fustle Causeway GR1 is a gravel bike with plenty of MTB influence.

It might have an odd sounding name but Fustle has launched and launched with a bang with one of the most progressive gravel bikes to date. Stemming from the brain of Alastair Beckett, a man with extensive experience of MTB design, the new Causeway GR1 is a bike designed to be fun and capable off-road. Back that up with a multitude of customisation options and Fustle might have hit the ground running.
