Hindsight Edge Sport Glasses

£199

Now these are some innovative glasses for both commuter safety and a performance advantage in racing thanks to its unique patented lens technology for “unparalleled situational awareness”. Developed with Olympic medallist Callum Skinner, the Edge Sport sunnies feature a two-part angled lens with semi-transparent mirrors for seeing forwards and backwards with just a shift of focus, rather than turning your head. It’s a True-Mirror lens which means objects should also be exactly as far as they look. Stuart Kerton has been testing these rear cycling glasses and his verdict will be up on the site soon…

£169.96

The L8 bib shorts feature the new 3D WAS chamois researched and developed in-house at Megmeister. Foam has been replaced by a warp knitted suspension system which Megmeister says is designed to improve pressure distribution in the saddle as well as maintaining dampening qualities over time.

Anna has been hooked on bikes ever since her youthful beginnings at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit. As an avid road and track racer, she reached the heady heights of a ProCyclingStats profile before leaving for university. Having now completed an MA in Multimedia Journalism, she’s hoping to add some (more successful) results. Although her greatest wish is for the broader acceptance of wearing funky cycling socks over the top of leg warmers.
