Matt Recommends

Throughout the year we will be bringing you recommendations from Matt, leaning on his many years of experience in the bike industry,

Chain, chain, chain

Fleetwood Mac could have been talking about the SRAM Eagle XX1 chain when they wrote "I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain"

The SRAM HARD CHROME chain has four times the elongation (wear) resistance to our other chains. This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. Push pin strength and ultimate strength are equivalent to our current chains. The HARD CHROME chain lasts longer and is just as strong.

These chains are one of the best upgrades you can make to a SRAM drivetrain. The chains last on average 3 times as long justifying the higher price. And they come in fun colours!

Cold Feet

Shimano's boots are built with weatherproof membranes like Gore-Tex, keeping your feet dry and toasty, The snug, high-ankle design with neoprene cuffs provides superior insulation and keeps the wind at bay. The boots are surprisingly lightweight and flexible, allowing for good power transfer and comfortable pedaling.

Wool socks are nature's miracle fabric for warmth and moisture management. They wick away sweat and trap insulating air, keeping your feet dry and comfortable all ride long.
