With the unseasonably high temperatures and sunny days of late, it is hard to imagine the colder conditions that we will all soon be dealing with.

The Boy Scout motto is ‘Be Prepared’ and although our days of woggles and badges are long in the past, we feel it is a fine ethos to live by.

We sat down with the latest industry catalogues and picked out the best accessories that we felt would ready your bike for winter.


Deda Squalo Bar Tape - This all weather tape provides a good degree of cushioning whilst having a rough non slip texture, perfect for riding in wet conditions in gloves

Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Folding tyres -  The great value tyres come with the usual excellent Vittoria riding performance. They have a effective tread pattern for riding in the rain and the 25c size adds a level of comfort . The larger size also means you can run them at a slightly lower pressure, improving grip without risking pinch flats.

BBB Slim Guards - In our opinion the simplest and easiest to use guards on the market. Once the discreet brackets are mounted behind the brake calipers , installation or removal is as simple as opening your Quick release  skewers.

Lezyne Femto - Even if you already own a rear light the Femto is so small and compact you,re likely to leave it on your bike all year (I know we do). As the saying goes the most effective light is the one you have with you.


Whether your converting your summer ride to winter duties, or have a designated bike,
