1. Bianchi Aria 105 Disc Road Bike
Alongside the super smooth-shifting Shimano 105 groupset, Shimano's BR-RS505 hydraulic disc brakes offer sublime stopping power and excellent modulation. The Fulcrum Racing 618 Disc Brake Wheels continue the celeste theme, with colour coordinated decals, while the Vittoria Rubino Tyres provide fantastic levels of grip, whether that's in the dry or wet.
2. Gore Wear C5 Shakedry 1985 Jacket
Gore Wear took the cycling world by storm when it first released this garment and it continues to be a firm favourite amongst cyclists who are looking for protection against the elements, namely rain. Yes, we are talking about Gore Wear's Shakedry Jacket range. As part of this illustrious range, the Gore Wear C5 Gore-Tex Shakedry 1985 Jacket boasts Gore-Tex water and windproof credentials and pairs these with Shakedry technology, which literally allows you to shake the moisture off the outer layer of the jacket.
A comfortable cut improves the range of movement on the bike and allows for layering underneath the jacket. Fit is further enhanced with the addition of a reinforced hem, which allows for easier closure of the zip. The front zip has a 2-way design, meaning regulating body temperature and accessing your jersey pockets is a simple task. Reflective detailing ensures visibility on the road is never compromised, while the 116-gram weight (in the large size) and lightweight construction makes folding the jacket down into a rear jersey pocket a breeze.
3. Oakley Aro 5 MIPS Limited Edition Helmet
Used by the likes of Team Dimension Data and Mark Cavendish, the Oakley Aro 5 MIPS Limited Edition Helmet is the perfect lid for keeping you safe and looking the part out on the road. MIPS technology has been widely adopted by the cycling helmet industry and for good reason. The technology sits between the shell and the lining and acts to dissipate rotational forces, should you be involved in an accident. Alongside MIPS the EPS foam construction further boosts the Aro 5's safety credentials, while the use of a Boa FS1-1 360 degree fit system allows you to dial your fit in.
In a limited edition polished black colourway, the helmet has integrated eyewear docks, allowing you to securely carry your sunglasses should you not wish to wear them. A drag reducing design comes with carefully placed vents to keep your head cool. Comfort and cooling are further enhanced with the X-Static brow pad that wicks away moisture.
4. Castelli Gabba 3 Short Sleeve Jersey
Inspired by former professional cyclist Gabriel Rasch and designed, produced and refined by Castelli, the Gabba has long been the benchmark for wet weather protection. Now in its third generation, the Castelli Gabba 3 Short Sleeve Jersey is water repellent, windproof and incredibly breathable, it's no wonder it is still a favourite cycling jersey amongst pro riders.
A Gore Windstopper X-Lite Plus fabric has been put to good effect, protecting you from the wind and rain, while Nano Flex has been incorporated under the arms to help regulate moisture. On the rear the storm-flap features a reflective logo, catching wheel spray and keeping you seen out on the road. Three rear pockets allow you to carry all your ride essentials, while the full-length YKK Vision zipper comes equipped with a wind flap to add a further degree of protection.
5. Giro Empire SLX Road Shoes
Lace-up and look sharp with the Giro Empire SLX Road Shoes. Weighing a mere 175 grams, this is one performance-focused pair of cycling shoes. From laying down the power through the Easton EC90 SLX2 high-modulus carbon sole to enjoying the breathability offered by the Evofibre SL upper, the Empire SLX is the ideal choice for those looking to make the most of every watt they produce. A KDL Techno sport lace-up design and Lace Garage both hold the foot securely in the shoe and prevent the laces from interfering with your drivetrain.
A SuperNatural Fit Kit footbed features adjustable arch support to offer a solid platform for optimum power delivery. The X-Static Antimicrobial fibre nature of the footbed improves hygiene and reduces odour build-up. Available for a limited time only with free VEL cleats, there is no excuse not to clip in and get riding with this shoe and cleat combo.
