Even if you don't ride like Spartacus, you can ride inspired by him in the next iteration of the GORE Fabian Cancellara Collection of jerseys, bibshorts, socks and gloves. Here's a much closer look at the streamlined and updated collection.

Gear Break: MAAP Cap, Tubolito, Campagnolo Bora Ultra WTO, Lizard Skins, KASK, DHB Mitts & Chamois Butt’r
A very full bag of gear: MAAP x New Era Prime rain cap, new Tubolito gravel tubes, Campagnolo Bora Ultra WTO wheels, Lizard Skins new 4.6mm V2 DSP tape, KASK new urban cycling helmets, the new DHB Aeron mitts and Chamois Butt’r launches 2021 ambassador team.
A super-full 'Gear Break' this week: PEZ looks at the Himiway Escape E-Bike and veloToze shoe covers. Plus Everything PRIMAL, Introducing Roval Rapide C38 wheels, Selle San Marco: Ride around, ride a Ground, Pirelli P ZERO RACE SL tubular tires arrive at Giro d’Italia and more Walz map caps.
PEZ reviews high visibility cycling clothing including the Specialized HyprViz jersey, bibshorts, long gloves, and over-socks. Some die hard roadies eschew hi-viz kit because it's not perceived as very pro and fluorescent yellow is more often associated with commuters rather than racers. But this new gear from the Big S might change your mind...
Another mixed bag of gear: Life Time and Rudy Project customized helmet design tested by Pez, Endura women’s Pro SL EGM bibshort, Zipp 353 NSW tubeless disc brake wheelset, Reddiyo dynamic training platform, MAAP x Suplest EDGE+ Road Pro shoes and Mips launches redesigned brand website.
This week we have a very varied selection of new kit: Pirelli P ZERO race tires, tested by PEZ's Chuck Peña, MyVeloFit launches A.I. powered bike fit tool, KOM Cycling's rocker plate for your home trainer, get your hands on the new 2021 EF Education-Nippo clothing, the ABUS Pedelec 2.0 - the next-gen micromobility helmet and SockGuy releases 38 new sock designs for Spring 2021.
Some of us - no, most of us - can be pretty obsessive over our numbers and getting the results into Strava and filling that Trophy Case is really important. But there are alternatives worth examining and one of these is Open Road, an attractive proposition that simply aims to replicate the real life experience of cycling in beautiful surroundings.
Another mixed bag of gear: Wahoo TICKR X heart rate monitor, Sena Rumba street-style helmet with audio, connectivity, and protection, Flite Boost Kit Carbonio Superflow 'MVDP Edition' saddle, Jack Wolfskin ideal layers for spring & summer biking, KOM Cycling indoor media display cycling desk and Qhubeka 'Bicycles Change Lives' jersey by Assos available for pre-order.
After a new bike, new shoes are right up there to make you feel like you can conquer the world. If you're looking at the best that different manufacturers have to offer (and want to channel your favorite pro rider), then have a look at the new Shimano S-PHYRE RC902 top tier road cycling shoe.
