This week we have two tyres to discuss. First up there's Schwalbe's latest gravel offering the G-One RS. It's built with speed in mind and is being raced at this month's Unbound. Then there's Pirelli's P Race Zero 150° tyres, which celebrate the venerable Italian brand's cycling heritage. The new rubber is released a 150 years after Pirelli's founding in 1872 and some 127 years after its 'Tipo Milano' tyre was raced at the 1895 edition of Milano-Cremona-Brescia-Milano.

We also have not one, but two, folding bike stories both with environmental overtones: Hummingbird's Flax model is the first folding bike made using flax fibre, while Gocycle have launched an initiative to make it's G4 folding e-bike more accessible.
