This week's round-up of releases starts with Aurum's Magma Essentia. Aurum is the brain child of Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso and the Essentia is designed to offer the characteristics of its flagship Magma at a keener price point. The ex-WorldTour pro theme continues with Le Col's collaborative collection with Fabian Cancellara, which celebrates his 15-year career in the shape of jerseys, bib shorts and even a pair of socks.

With Cycling Weekly's inaugural Gravel Week drawing to a close it's fitting that we've products here from Restrap and Tailfin, two British brands that have embraced gravel riding: both the Bumper Bar and the V-Mount packs should pique the interest of any cyclist who likes to take the path less ridden.
