Get Cross!

Get Cross!

There’s a portion of the cycling community quietly pleased with the way the weather is taking a turn for the worst at the moment. The slipping away of summer marks the start of the cyclocross season, which for more and more people every year means the racing season has begun. If you’re delving into the world of ‘cross for the first time this year and are at sixes and sevens about where to start, we’ve put together a few products that will help you get kitted out and prepped for the sludge.

It’s a peculiar sport, one like any other, involving ill suited equipment and terrain conditions that even the most hardy off-road rider would think twice about. But, there’s the pull. The racing is intense yet short, the races excepting of all skills and fitness levels, suiting riders from all different cycling backgrounds. The right kit however can make all the difference due to the unpredictable nature of the courses. You’ll hear of PSI obsessions, racers ruminating on tread profiles and, of course, the increasingly tiresome disc vs canti debate, however, by just choosing the right pair of shoes or gloves you can keep focus on the important things, like staying upright.

The early season might bring the sun, but fast forward to a frozen sunday on a school field in any given county and you’ll be pleased for the skull cap and embrocation to keep the chill away. Have a look below, fill in the gaps in your kit bag, and get your remounts dialled in.
