LINE SPEED Lyne AMP 30 Wheelset | RRP R5 499 Non-Boost and R5 749 Boost | lynecomponents.com Laced with 32 Triple Butted Pillar PSR TB2016 spokes to Lyne JB01 hubs, made by Chosen, Lyne’s AMP 30 wheels are constructed from light but durable 6066 Alloy. With an internal width of 30mm they are available in 29 or 27.5 models and are designed with trail riding in mind. We would bang the wider is better drum again, but you know the story by now. If you don’t believe us, read our tyre review on p84. Plus, with QR and thru axle compatibility with the simple switch of an end-cap, they’re the perfect upgrade for virtually any bike, old or new. At the price, they could be a second wheelset for trail riding and training if you want to spare your carbon wheels. LOW LIGHT SAFETY Bontrager Circuit and Rally MIPS Helmets | RRP R2 599 Circuit and R2 399 Rally | trekbikes.com With the sun setting earlier and rising later, autumn is the time of dusk, if not dark, rides, so remaining visible on the roads is essential to your safety. Even if you’re just nipping along a short stretch of tar on your way to the mountain or Spruit, a set of flashing lights are essential. Bontrager’s Circuit and Rally MIPS helmets not only include the rotational force dissipating MIPS technology, they are also compatible with their Blendr magnetic mounts. The mounts allow you to attach Bontrager Daytime Running Lights (DRL) to your helmet via GoPro compatible mounts, ensuring you’ll remain visible to motorists while out riding. OPTICAL MONITORING Wahoo Tickr Fit Heart Rate Armband | RRP R1 299 | buycycle.co.za Wahoo’s Tickr Fit is a heart rate armband designed to replace your chest strap heart rate monitor. The band should be worn on your forearm, just below the elbow, and connects to Wahoo devices as well as fitness apps, bike computers and smart watches via Bluetooth and ANT+. It features an optical heart rate monitor, like the kind seen in many smart watches, and has a rechargeable battery with a run time of up to 30 hours. For cross training it’s important to note that the Tickr Fit is water-resistant (IPX7/up to 1 metre immersion) and will transmit/save heart rate data if worn while swimming. UNCHAIN YOUR WALLET KMC 12 SP X12-1 TI-N | RRP R757.95 | kmcchain.com Yes we love the bling of Eagle’s gold sheen, but when it comes to replacing components our wallets might not be quite as happy – especially with muddy winter riding ahead. Fortunately, KMC have a budget-friendly solution in the shape of their 12-speed titanium-nitride coated, SRAM compatible chain. Featuring a “Double X Bridge shape”, which KMC say provides smooth shifting and low friction rolling, it might just keep your wheels turning when conditions get rough in the wetter months. RAIN RAIN, COME AGAIN Endura Single Track Jacket II | RRP TBA | endurasport.com For those days when it rains properly but you still want to hit the trails, the Endura Single Track Jacket II is the perfect companion. With a relaxed cut, so you can wear it over a trail top or something a little thicker, a rollaway hood and a tail to prevent water creeping down your… bibs, the Single Track Jacket II was designed with wet UK riding in mind. Not only is it wind and waterproof but it also features under-arm vents for those muggy but wet autumn and spring days. gotta have it | MTB | 35 LINE SPEED Lyne AMP 30 Wheelset | RRP R5 499 Non-Boost and R5 749 Boost | lynecomponents.com Laced with 32 Triple Butted Pillar PSR TB2016 spokes to Lyne JB01 hubs, made by Chosen, Lyne’s AMP 30 wheels are constructed from light but durable 6066 Alloy.
