    Lazer's new Vento road helmet is fast and comfortable. Accept no compromises.

    Aerodynamics has probably been the defining trait of road cycling ever since Greg LeMond beat Laurent Fignon on the final stage of the Tour de France in 1989. Going faster stopped simply being about beating the wind, it became about cheating the wind, and that's progressed from just time trails onto road stages, with road racers everywhere trying to figure out how to get a few seconds faster - or save a few watts - anywhere they can.  Lazer's new Vento road helmet follows that lead, designed to be fastest at a 15 degree angle in a sprint position it's Lazer's fastest road helmet ever and currently on the heads of Team Jumbo Visma in the pro peloton.  You might think that a helmet this fast would be warm, right? Well no, actually. With 13 vents, the Vento uses Lazer's Venturi Effect Ventilation System to draw cool air through the front of the helmet and channel warm air out the rear.  One other innovation on the Vento  is the new ScrollSys retention

    Joeffrey Maluski highlights plastic waste and pollution on Plastiqu'Adour expedition

    When it comes to highlighting the climate emergency, our friend Joffrey Maluski could have chosen to superglue himself to a busy road… but instead, he had the infinitely more sensible idea of building a raft out of 600 plastic bottles.He then grabbed his Genesis Vagabond and towed the raft from Biarritz to Tarbes, with the idea of launching the vessel along the Adour river and paddling the route back to Anglet.

    Pyrenees C2C x BAC

    A ride of 750km to take in 27 cols and every iconic Pyrenees climb on a coast-to-coast route – that sounds like a recipe for adventure to us! It’s exactly the trip that Aaron and the British Adventure Collective crew were inspired to take on earlier this year. Aboard an assortment of Datums and Croix de Fers, the quartet set off from the sea near Biarritz, with seven days of riding in store before reaching the coast just outside of Perpignan. We join Aaron as he recollects a particularly steep slope in the Basque Country, where he picks up the story of his adventure.

    Introducing: Our first E-bikes

    With our first E-bikes now in the wild, we thought it was time we gave an in depth look at the new Genesis Smithfield and Columbia Road models. You may recognise the classic styling from the original namesakes but with the addition of Shimano’s exceptional STEPS motors, these are an entirely new proposition. Designed by our experienced team here in Britain, we’ve kept cues that made the Smithfield and Columbia Road such great bikes to look at.
