It's summer, which means that we've optimistically included short sleeve jerseys...

New product round up: Saggle, Mondraker, Dare2b, Foska and THE

The Heinz Tomato Sauce jersey
Foska: 0845 310 0120

It was probably only a matter of time before Foska followed up on the firm catalogue favourite Marmite branded jersey.
For lovers of a bit of sauce, Foska now offers a Heinz Tomato Ketchup design, printed with fade free ink onto the company’s signature Collmax and Respire fabric jersey.
Sporting a three-quarter length zip, three deep rear pockets and an extended dropped tail, the saucy number will retail for £49.95.
Foska also supplies a Fullers London Pride and Pukka Pie jersey design for beer and food lovers.

THE Thirty3 helmet
Silverfish: 01752 843882

Also in stock with Silverfish, THE’s Thirty3 full face helmet has passed all the key protective gear tests with flying colours.
Retailing at £169, the lightweight Thirty3 is based around a glass fibre shell construction, packing 18 air vents into the chassis, as well as a rear-exit ventilation system.
Other features include an EVA impact-foam chin bar liner, removable cheek pads, all of which are washable and a stainless steel grill guard.
What’s more, Silverfish will supply a protective carry case and spare visor with each unit sold. Eight different designs are to be available.
For those on a bit more of a budget, THE’s Point 5 Full Face helmet in four designs comes in at £89.95.

The Saggle

Direct to retail:

Tools don’t come much simpler or straightforward than the Saggle. With multiple scales for fork travel ranging 100mm through 160mm, the saggle quickly measures a suspension fork’s sag.
Made in the UK, the tool is gentle on stanchions and compact so it won’t weigh down your tool kit. All a rider or mechanic need do is reset their o-ring prior to taking a measurement.
Saggle is interested in selling via retailers on a direct sales basis, so if you think the tool could be useful to your customers or mechanic, get in touch on

Mondraker Foxy XR/RR
Silverfish: 01752 843882

Due to land with Silverfish in June, Mondraker’s eye-catching Foxy line will be made up of the R Carbon at £4,399, the RR Carbon at £4,999.99 and top level XR carbon at £5,999.99. The frameset will also land at the same time and retail for £2,699.
Utilising Mondraker’s forward geometry, which does away with traditional a traditional cockpit in favour of a short 30mm stem, Mondraker has refined the design with the prior 10mm unit attracting criticism solely because of its looks. Mondraker can supply the 10mm stems should a rider prefer.
The Zero suspension system on which the foxy is built is the label’s own version of a virtual pivot point, with the shock attached at the upper and lower links, which when in use, compress from both the top and bottom.

Dare2b AEP collection
Moore Large: 01332 274200

Having performed well last year, Dare2b has continued its partnership with former Tour de France winner Oscar Pereiro.
The new range boasts anti-bacterial odour control properties, designed to provide comfort on those long climbs. There’s also carefully woven in stretch fabrics with ‘Body next to skin’ technology, as well as wind and waterproof membranes to keep the rider comfortable.
In addition to these features, each piece is cut based on the riding position for optimal performance, along with stretch mesh venting zones, cleverly articulated sleeve designs and long backs with scooped elasticated hems that include a gel gripper tape. The tights in the range include an exclusive new and improved AEP gel pad that is bigger than before.
The 17 piece men’s and womanwear collection is now in stock with Moore Large.
