A new rear light from Hope and a book designed to help riders brush up on their MTB expertise

NEW PRODUCTS: Hope’s Vision District 3 and MTB Skills Manual

Vision District 3 rear light
01282 851200

Hope has further progressed its lighting range with the introduction of the District 3 rear safety light.

At 84 lumens on high, the wide beam covers 270 degrees of visibility ensuring the cyclist is seen from both the rear and sides. Three red CREE XR-LEDs emit light on five settings, from steady to flashing and various power outputs, meaning burn time can be as long as 104 hours per three hour charge. As with all other Hope products, the District 3 is CNC machined in Barnoldswick and designed to shed the heat generated. The neat QR bayonet fixing securely attaches the lamp to the mount.

At only £16.99, you’ll probably not find a more comprehensive guide out there to the basics of MTBing. Covering techniques across various disciplines, as well as bike tech, maintenance and more, Clive Forth’s 202-page paperback has the beginner’s FAQs covered from A to Z.

MTB academy founder Forth and photographer Frazer Waller fill the pages with step-by-step photographs and tips to trail riding, downhill, street, marathon, enduro, freeride, cross country and much more.

The trade can get hold of copies via A&C Black as above or via murwin@acblack.com.
