Vittoria Corsa Speed Road Tyre (£49.99)

Using Graphene+, a revolutionary substance that is only 1 atom thick but 200 times harder than steel and the lightest material known to man, the already excellent Corsa has been improved.

When tested against the standard Corsa, the Corsa G+ was found to have 19% less rolling resistance. It's Intelligent Tyre System (ITS) ensures you are fully equipped for the riding conditions.

When the road is straight, the compound will be at its hardest, ensuring minimal rolling resistance. During braking, acceleration or cornering, the compound becomes softer for maximum grip.

Features:

  • Performance road clincher with Graphene+
  • Provides uncompromising speed, grip and durability
  • Intelligent Tyre System (ITS) provides the perfect amount of grip to reduce rolling resistance
  • Weight: 235g (700x23c)

Sram XX1 Eagle 12 Speed Groupset Including Crankset (£979)

Sram XX1 Eagle 12 Speed Groupset.png

SRAM X01 Eagle GXP Chainset - 175mm Black (£329)

The new XX1 crankset is a completely re-engineered design, employing proprietary Carbon Tuned lay-up technology. Built tough, to handle aggressive lines, the new XX1 Eagle is the strongest, stiffest, lightest crankset available.

Rear Derailer (£189)

The larger, 14 tooth X-Sync lower pulley allows 10 to 50 tooth cassette capacity in this compact design and adds to the smooth pedalling. The new Type-3 Roller Bearing Clutch features a smoother torque curve for a quieter, more consistent operation and feel. The Cage Lock has been moved back, protecting it from trail debris. A redesigned, robust mounting system further improves the derailleurs performance and overall durability.

XX1 Eagle Cassette (£319)

Designed for use with the XD driver body, this 12 speed, 10 to 50 tooth cassette offers an optimal 500% gear range at a lighter weight than 2x systems. It carries with it the X-Dome architecture, which independent tests have concluded, yields the strongest cassettes on the market. New shifting characteristics improve both inboard and outboard shifting, as well as chain retention.

Sram XX1 Eagle Chain - 126 Links (£59)

The engineering inside this new chain design makes it possible to achieve a gear range previously found only in 2-chainring drivetrains. The chain links have a smooth radius, with no sharp edges or chamfers, which yield a significant reduction in noise, friction and wear on chainrings and cassette cogs. Hard chrome technology extends the chain's optimal performance life and a Titanium Nitride coating on the Gold and Black models decreases corrosion and further reduces friction.

Sram X01 Eagle Trigger 12 Speed Shifter (£105)

New mechanism creates a smoother and more precise shifting system with exceptional reliability and the forged aluminum trigger is designed to take a beating. The setup is customisable via the adjustable pull lever and MatchMaker™ X.

Carbon Wheel Testing

Sunshine, mid week day, Lake District opportunity: quite a combination.

We grabbed this chance with both hands and took our trusty 29er up north - equipped with its latest Sixth Element wheels: 30mm wide XC rims laced to Hope Pro 2 Evo Hubs.

Parking at Staveley (just north of Kendal Cumbria ) the four hour loop started easily enough with a fire road climb, turning into a moorland crossing. With the recent dry weather this had little of the bogginess of winter and spring time rides,  and was a joy to climb. Needless the say, the Carbon 29ers shod with the trusty combination of Hutchinson Toro 2.1  on the front and Onza Canis 2.25 on the rear (tubeless, naturally) lapped up the terrain.

Once over the other side of the hill and down to the Sadgill road we headed north up on to Harter Fell - this is where it got rocky!

While some hike-a bike was needed on this segment, the view over the tops was well worth it. And then the decent, whilst needing extreme care (and some carrying), was simply fabulous. Then it was on rocky, grassy banks to Kentmere, up past the wood (west of the church and houses) on a rocky trail and down the west side of the River Kent valley through Croft Head, before the final easy trip along the road back to Staveley and for tea and cake at Wilf's .

A varied, testing work out for these 30mm wide XC rims.
