You’ll hopefully have got the idea of road.cc Recommends by now. Essentially, it’s the place where we group all of the very best-performing products that we’ve reviewed – the crème de la crème if you like – not simply stuff that’s scored well, but those items we think stand out as special. In short, it’s a one-stop-shop for cycling excellence.
We update road.cc Recommends monthly, and we’ve added 11 products from all those we review in March, including two bikes: one from Wilier and one from Orro. The Wilier Filante is a high-end aero road bike currently being ridden by the Total Direct Énergie team – and it’s gorgeous, frankly.

The Orro Terra C GRX800 is the updated version of a bike that we reviewed last year, now with cable routing that enters the frame at the top of the head tube. It’s a sporty bike and an absolute blast to ride. Complete bikes start at £1,800.
We have clothing from Pearl Izumi, Craft and DexShell, along with another offering from Orro: the Pyro Line Aquazero Bibtights. With a Cytech pad and water repellent treatment, these impressed us massively. It has been a good month for Orro!
On the components and accessories side of things, new entries in road.cc Recommends include tyres from Vittoria, panniers from Oxford, and mudguards from SKS. The one thing that they all have in common is their superb performance,

A beauty. It almost looks as good as my Raleigh Banana.
Yeah - I just think of Boyle's when gas laws come up

Heresy! Boris would never lie to anyone. Ever.
It's almost like privatising the railroads makes as much sense as trying to privatise the roads, or emergency services..
