class="wp-caption-text"><span class="caption-copy"><i class="icon-arrow icon-camera-circle"></i> The Rapha Explore jacket uses Gore-Tex’s Active three-layer hardshell material.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Russell Burton / Immediate Media</i></span></div>
<p>A hardshell jacket is typically made with a woven outer fabric. That makes it less stretchy than a softshell, which is usually made from a knitted fabric.</p>
<p>“The extra stretch in a softshell can be utilised to ensure comfort and performance in close-fit garments, so is particularly good for road products,” says Ian Young, product manager at Endura. “This soft outer also means the products tend to be quieter when riding.”</p>
<p>Young points out that there’s not a strict definition of what constitutes a hardshell or a softshell jacket, though. “With the evolution of various waterproof and windproof fabrics over the past few years, the line between soft and hard shell is not as clear as it once may have been,” he says.</p>
<p>Both soft and hardshells will have a membrane layer sandwiched within the jacket’s structure that provides wind and rain resistance, while letting water vapour out so you don’t get too clammy when you work up a sweat.</p>
<p>That used to sit between outer and inner fabric layers – a three-layer fabric. More recently, 2.5-layer and 2-layer laminates have become an option. Here, the inner layer, inside the membrane, is reduced or absent. That leads to a lighter-weight structure that can be made more breathable.</p>
<p>And Gore has turned that around with its Shakedry fabrics, where the membrane is on the outside of the jacket. This gives excellent breathability in a lightweight jacket, a permanently water-repellent outer surface and, as its name says, the ability to shake off surface water. Originally rigid, the latest Shakedry fabrics include stretch too.</p>

<p>The blurring of hardshell and softshell categories is evident too in the latest generation of the Castelli Gabba, the archetypal softshell jacket used by pro cyclists for racing in poor weather.</p>
<p>Whereas in 2010 the original Gabba wasn’t too water-resistant, to ensure enough breathability, in the fourth generation launched in 2019, Castelli has used a new Gore-Tex Infinium fabric that ups water resistance.</p>
<p>Because of the brushed inner surface of softshell fabrics, taping the seams inside isn’t possible, but Castelli has taped the outside of the seams on the shoulders of the latest <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/castelli-2020-gabba-perfetto/">Gabba RoS</a>, adding a little more water resistance.</p>

<p>Hardshell jackets will typically provide more resistance to prolonged rain though, so they’re a good bet if you’re expecting to be out in a downpour. That’s usually helped by manufacturers taping the seams on the inside of the jacket, as the stitching in an untaped seam can let in rain over time.</p>
<p>“They’re perfect for when it’s going to be raining all day and you need to keep the core warm and dry. Rapha’s most advanced hardshell fabric is Gore-Tex Shakedry. It’s super-lightweight, fully waterproof and the most breathable waterproof fabric on the market,” says Harry Osborn, product designer at Rapha.</p>
<p>With less weight, a hardshell is generally better for a lightweight shell, says Endura’s Young. “But they require more careful layering underneath for maximum comfort,” he cautions.</p>
<p>A hardshell is likely to be more packable too. “The 2-layer Exoshell20ST fabric used in Endura’s best-selling Adrenaline Race Cape sits somewhere in between soft and hardshell – a lightweight mesh is bonded to protect the membrane, creating a waterproof, breathable shell with enough stretch to be worn in a close fit, and it packs small enough to be stashed in a jersey back pocket or keep you dry in heavy rain,” he says.</p>
<p>“The only downside of this fabric is that it can be relatively fragile, so would not last long in a trail rider’s wardrobe!”</p>

surface.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Russell Burton / Immediate Media</i></span></div>
<p>Anne Weir, fabric specialist at Gore, stresses the importance of breathability for comfort when riding. It allows heat to escape, due to evaporation from the outer surface of the jacket, and also helps keep the layers you’re wearing inside drier. Gore has a whole range of fabrics designed for activities such as cycling, where you’re working hard and likely to be generating significant heat and sweat.</p>
<p>The company uses a machine to measure how resistant its laminates are to water-vapour loss and its <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-gore-tex-shakedry-cycling-rain-jackets/">Gore-Tex Shakedry</a>, Active and Infinium fabrics all rate as extremely breathable. The former two would classify as hardshell fabrics, while Infinium is a non-waterproof (but water-resistant) softshell fabric.</p>
<p>But whereas Shakedry and Active fabrics are very thin, the Infinium softshell fabric adds a fleecy inner surface. This increases its warmth, so you’ll feel comfortable with fewer layers underneath.</p>
<p>So there’s a balance between feeling comfortably warm when cycling and breathability. In warmer, wet conditions a thin hardshell jacket is likely to be a better option, whereas in cooler, damp conditions you’re likely to feel more comfortable in a softshell jacket.</p>
<h3>Softshells offer increased breathability</h3>

<p>Brands tend to mix the fabrics they use in their softshell garments. This provides maximum breathability for comfort when riding at tempo, says Osborn, as in the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/clothing/jackets-and-vests/jackets/rapha-pro-team-winter-jacket-review/">Rapha Pro Team Winter jacket</a>.</p>
<p>Gore’s Weir confirms that emphasis on comfort and breathability in softshell garments. “Many of the Gore-Tex Infinium and Windstopper styles are also made to fit closer to the body in a ‘form fit’ design,” she says.</p>
<p>“Many have air-permeable fabrics in places where an airflow allows for heat to escape, many styles have partial taping, just to give some light rain protection where it’s needed for that end use, and although these styles will provide a high level of protection against wind chill and light rain, they are not built for prolonged rain.</p>
<p>“You may still be wet but comfortable. But reaching for your Gore-Tex waterproof in those heavier and prolonged rain conditions would give more protection and a prolonged feeling of comfort.”</p>
<p>Both Weir and Osborn point out that there’s no reason not to wear a more water-resistant hardshell and a warm softshell together if you’re riding in weather that’s both wet and cold.</p>

<p>All three of our experts concur that it’s not about choosing between a hardshell and a softshell, it’s about selecting the right clothing for the conditions in which you’ll be riding.</p>
<p>Weir points out that many cyclists will wear a hardshell jacket even in dry conditions, as they’re breathable, light and easy to pack, while other riders will choose an Infinium softshell in the rain for its form fit, freedom of movement and thermal regulation.</p>
<p>“Prioritise the various product and fabric attributes: waterproofing, windproofing, breathability, fit, features, weight, pack size, price, etc and look for the product which ticks the most important boxes for the conditions and type of riding you plan to use it for,” says Young.</p>

However, <a href="https://osf.io/preprints/sportrxiv/k6bh8/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">a new study from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado</a> suggests that’s not always the case.</p>
<p>In an analysis of the measurable advantages of cycling shoes and <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/flat-or-clipless-pedals-which-is-right-for-you/" rel="noopener">clipless pedals</a> used by competitive and recreational road cyclists, researchers found no hard evidence that a super-stiff sole is a winning choice for sprinting.</p>

<p>Sports scientists measured the mechanical power outputs, velocities, and cadences of 19 healthy male cyclists during a series of 50m flat-out sprints.</p>
<p>The riders trialled three shoes, all with identical uppers, that were attached to soles with very different grades of stiffness – the most flexible shoe used injection-moulded soles, the second set a carbon-fibre/fibreglass blend and the stiffest shoe featured a full carbon fibre sole.</p>
<p>All of the cyclists rode outdoors on a paved asphalt road with a steady, uphill gradient (4.9 per cent) and used the same clipless pedals throughout all tests.</p>

<p>No difference was detected between the three shoe soles.</p>
<p>Measurements for average and peak power, average and peak cadence, maximal sprint velocity, acceleration and crank torque were almost identical throughout.</p>
<p>“We found no difference in performance between less stiff and stiffer road cycling shoe soles during short uphill sprints in recreational/competitive cyclists,” concluded lead researcher Rodger Kram.</p>
<p>According to their research, the stiffest cycling shoe soles, when compared both to a moderately stiff and the least stiff road cycling shoe offered by a “well-known manufacturer” showed no performance benefits in:</p>
<ul><li>50m average and peak one-second power</li>
<li>Average and peak change in velocity</li>
<li>Maximum velocity</li>
<li>Peak acceleration</li>
<li>Peak torque</li>
</ul><p>The researchers also expressed surprise at the uniformity of findings through the short sprints.</p>
<h2>Does this mean flexible shoes are just as fast as stiff shoes?</h2>

points.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Reuben Bakker-Dyos / Immediate Media</i></span></div>
<p>Before you cancel your order for those stylish stiff-soled Giros and opt for your old-school plimsolls, it’s worth remembering that this is also only one trial, among a small group of trained riders focused upon ‘longitudinal sole stiffness’ and its impact upon a few seconds of all-out sprinting.</p>
<p>Over longer time periods, differences in sole stiffness might produce benefits. Some bike-fitting specialists agree.</p>
<p>“Sprint performance normally isn’t the main reason for selecting a stiffer shoe, at least not from a bike-fitting perspective,” suggests Innes Ogilvy of Edinburgh-based bike fitter Bramblers Cycling. “And the findings of this study probably won’t help people find the right shoe still.”</p>
<p>“I think the reason for designing a stiff shoe or buying one should be to improve comfort,” adds Ogilvy. “In my experience, those who have intentionally opted for more flexible cycling shoes tend to have had bad experiences with stiff shoes because they bought something that didn’t fit, not because it was stiff.”</p>

Bromley / Immediate Media</i></span></div>
<p>The latest study has raised a few eyebrows among the creators of cycling shoes. “If their argument was true, you could easily race in a pair of running shoes, which is obviously not the case at all,” insists Istvan Nemeth, CEO at Bont Cycling.</p>
<p>Kram’s own previous research backs up this claim.</p>
<p>A study published in 2019 that compared the results of 12 cyclists testing stiff-soled shoes and clipless pedals against running shoes – which typically have next-to-no longitudinal stiffness – and platform pedals found stiff clipless shoes produced much better performance stats and were shown to positively improve cycling performance during high-power, uphill sprints.</p>
<p>Broadly speaking, this suggests that while there is an advantage to be had by choosing stiffer shoes, the returns in performance become vanishingly small past a certain point.</p>
<p>The 2020 study was unable to define where this critical point lies but, for most of us, it’s likely safe to assume that even entry-level shoes will provide all of the stiffness we need from a performance perspective.</p>
<h2>What about fit and comfort?</h2>

Burton / Immediate Media</i></span></div>
<p>Stiff shoes may have advantages beyond performance for some riders, however.</p>
<p>Critically, because the clipless pedals are so small (compared to flat pedals), a stiffer shoe helps spread out pedalling forces across the whole foot. If your clipless shoes were as flexible as a running shoe, you would be driving your pedalling force into a small area, which is likely to be both inefficient and very uncomfortable.</p>
<p>Both Nemeth and Ogilvy point out that, stiffness aside, the key to getting the right shoes is having a proper bike fit. “We emphasise mainly anatomical fit, structural support and stiffness in that order,” adds Nemeth.</p>
<p>“Turning the pedals is a cyclical movement, good sprinters understand the importance of the upstroke as well as the downstroke… Apart from the sole stiffness, to support the foot on the upstroke you also need proper structural support on the top of the foot.</p>
<p>“In addition, having structural arch support that stops the foot from pronating and acting as a dampener, and having shoes that allow your foot to spread effectively inside the shoes, all go a long way to increasing efficiency.</p>
<p>“Simply stiff shoes are not enough and having stiff shoes without the other two parts done correctly will cause issues and discomfort.”</p>
<h2>So does shoe stiffness actually matter?</h2>
<p>In summary, when compared to riding in flexible running shoes with flat pedals, a stiff clipless-pedal shoe will provide a tangible performance benefit.</p>
<p>However, the majority of clipless shoes on the market are likely to be stiff enough for most riders (though exactly how much ‘enough’ is isn’t clear).</p>
<p>More critical is that you get a shoe that is suitable for your chosen cycling discipline, that also fits and supports your feet well.</p>

Its training plan builder creates a programme tailored to your targets and level of fitness.</p>
<p>It’s pitched at dedicated athletes who want to complete a number of sessions a week as part of a training schedule, rather than have an occasional online smash with their mates.</p>
<p>There’s no virtual reality riding, but you can ride to videos of iconic cycling routes. Some sessions replicate the intensity of real pro-race finales.</p>
<p>Some workouts that don’t have footage can be done outdoors. The multisport platform has running workouts and <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/8-stretches-to-improve-your-flexibility-and-cycling-performance/" rel="noopener">yoga</a> as <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/cross-training/" rel="noopener">cross-training for cyclists</a>.</p>
<p>As we’ll explain later, having swallowed The Sufferfest, Wahoo SYSTM has more in common with no-nonsense <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/training/training-software/trainerroad-training-software-review/">TrainerRoad</a>. It’s similarly priced, but different to <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/zwift-your-complete-guide/">Zwift</a> with its video-game graphics and growing number of virtual worlds.</p>

for cyclists.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Wahoo </i></span></div>
<p>Wahoo SYSTM is an all-encompassing training <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-cycling-apps/">app</a> that can be downloaded on iOS, Android, macOS and Windows.</p>
<p>The app combines a large archive of interval-based cycling workouts with strength work, yoga and mental training in order to improve your on- and off-bike fitness.</p>
<p>Wahoo SYSTM incorporates The Sufferfest – which Wahoo acquired in 2019 – and in keeping with that spartan training tool, dispenses with some of the bells and whistles of its rivals.</p>
<h2>How does Wahoo SYSTM work?</h2>
<p>Instead of creating a virtual world in the vein of Zwift and <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/rgt-cycling-guide/">RGT Cycling</a>, Wahoo SYSTM makes you a training schedule from a plethora of workouts and content, and then helps you complete it. Or, you can pick and choose workouts as you go along.</p>
<p>Wahoo SYSTM uses the brand’s own <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/ftp-is-dead-the-sufferfest-claims-and-launches-4dp-training/">Four Dimensional Power (4DP)</a> profile (a more sophisticated version of <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/what-is-ftp-and-why-it-matters-for-cyclists/#:~:text=FTP%20stands%20for%20Functional%20Threshold,an%20hour%2C%20measured%20in%20watts.">Functional Threshold Power</a>, which has more in common with <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/critical-power/">Critical Power</a>), to create plans and workouts bespoke to an individual’s fitness that address their strengths and weaknesses.</p>
<h2>How much does Wahoo SYSTM cost?</h2>
<p>Wahoo SYSTM is available as a free 14-day trial for new users. After that, a Wahoo SYSTM subscription costs $14.99 per month, or $129.99 per year.</p>
<h2>What equipment do I need to use Wahoo SYSTM?</h2>

<p>If you don’t have a Wahoo device, most ANT+ or Bluetooth-compatible smart trainers will also work.</p>
<p>If your measurement device is Bluetooth compatible, you should be able to connect it to your computer, tablet or smartphone via that. Alternatively, you can get an ANT+ USB dongle and use that. Wahoo has an <a href="https://support.wahoofitness.com/hc/en-us/articles/4402564853138">online tool</a> to check device compatibility if you want to be sure.</p>
<p>If you don’t have a smart trainer, a ‘dumb’ trainer paired with a heart rate monitor, a power meter, a wheel speed sensor and a cadence sensor will also suffice.</p>
<p>If you don’t have a power meter, SYSTM can calculate virtual power on most non-smart turbo trainers, if you pair a wheel speed sensor with the app. The data won’t be as accurate as with a real power meter or smart trainer, however.</p>
<p>While all Wahoo SYSTM workouts also have heart rate and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) targets, at a bare minimum, we’d recommend you ride with a wheel speed sensor and a heart rate monitor.</p>
<p>While you could get away with just a speed sensor and riding based on RPE, an inexpensive heart rate monitor will give you useful insight into your fitness.</p>

<p>First, download the Wahoo SYSTM app and set up an account, or log in if you’ve got one already.</p>
<p>The next screen requests personal information to create your 4DP profile. You can do a test later to update your values.</p>
<p>Next, you can choose the introductory training plan to get a taste of what is on offer, or design your own before starting the free 14-day trial.</p>

<p>Despite being cycling-centric, Wahoo SYSTM also includes the following sports and activities:</p>
<ul><li>Running</li>
<li>Swimming</li>
<li>Yoga</li>
<li>Strength training</li>
<li><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/health/mental-health-cycling/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Mental health</a> training</li>
</ul><h2>How do I join a group ride on Wahoo SYSTM?</h2>
<p>Using Wahoo SYSTM is a largely solitary affair, for the most part. The platform lacks some of the interactive and social elements of Zwift or RGT cycling, such as group rides and races.</p>
<p>You can post questions for Wahoo’s coaches and socialise with fellow SYSTM users on the app’s dedicated online forum, though.</p>
<p>Additionally, if your friends also have SYSTM accounts, you could meet digitally on Discord (or any similar communications app) and complete workouts as a group.</p>

<p>There’s no virtual racing on Wahoo SYSTM, but ProRides sessions challenge you to replicate a professional’s power output in the last 60-120 minutes of a race. The efforts are adjusted to your ability while you watch footage from the racer’s onboard camera.</p>
<h2>Can I use Wahoo SYSTM for structured workouts?</h2>
<p>Structured workouts are the essence of the app. Certain sessions, such as No-Vid, can be downloaded to your bike computer and completed outdoors. The brand also says Wahoo SYSTM’s training plans balance tough and easy workouts to provide adequate recovery.</p>

<p>There is a choice of two workout modes. In Level, you change gear on your bike or trainer to adjust the resistance. ERG mode sets the resistance for you to meet your target power. Wahoo SYSTM suggests the one best suited to the session, but you’re free to choose whichever you prefer.</p>
<p>To begin, you need the app to read your power somewhere, such as a smart trainer or power meter. It’s best if a heart rate monitor is also connected in the Devices tab, so the app, and you, can better track your performance.</p>
<p>Under the Display tab, check ‘show storyline’, ‘heart rate’ and ‘power’ are showing, then you’re ready to roll.</p>
<h2>How do I upload my Wahoo SYSTM rides to Strava?</h2>
<p>Workout data can be automatically uploaded to Final Surge, Garmin Connect, Strava, Today’s Plan and TrainingPeaks.</p>
<p>Under Settings in the app, click on the Authorized App tab and select your preferred platform. You’ll be asked to log in and then it should appear under the Connected Apps section of SYSTM.</p>
<p>You can upload manually by pressing the Share button to the top right of a completed workout. Or, you can email yourself the workout, download the .FIT file and upload that.</p>

<p>Those of us who had a <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/which-indoor-training-solution-is-best-for-you/">turbo trainer or rollers</a> before the advent of smart trainers, <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/indoor-bikes/">smart bikes</a> and <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-indoor-cycling-apps/">indoor cycling apps</a> will no doubt have painful memories of indoor training sessions which somehow appeared to slow the passage of time itself.</p>
<p>These tools have revolutionised how many of us approach riding indoors, though. Boredom is now mostly a thing of the past, provided you approach it in the right way, and more riders than ever are enjoying the benefits of indoor training</p>
<p>With that in mind, here are our top 5 tips to getting the most out of your indoor training.</p>

<h2>1. Get a smart trainer</h2>
<p>Smart trainers are a primary reason indoor training doesn’t have to be boring anymore.</p>
<p>Thanks to their ability to control the resistance and simulate courses, a smart trainer enables your indoor training sessions to be far more immersive than would otherwise be possible.</p>

<p>Want to be a better climber but don’t live near any mountains? A smart trainer can simulate gradients and replicate much of the feeling of climbing long, steep climbs. This can be especially helpful if you’re <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/how-to-use-zwift-train-for-an-event/">training for an event</a> like a gran fondo or sportive.</p>
<p>Although nothing can match the experience of actually being outside in the mountains for real, a smart trainer paired with a virtual cycling app like <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/zwift-your-complete-guide/">Zwift</a>, <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/rgt-cycling-guide/">RGT Cycling</a> or <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/rouvy-everything-you-need-to-know/">Rouvy</a> comes admirably close.</p>

<p>A smart trainer doesn’t have to be super expensive either.</p>
<p>Yes, you can spend loads if you want to, with top-end options like the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/training/indoor-trainers/resistance-trainer/tacx-neo-2t-smart-review/">Tacx Neo 2T</a> and <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/training/indoor-trainers/wahoo-kickr-smart-trainer-2020-review/">Wahoo Kickr</a> among the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-smart-trainer/">best smart trainers</a> we’ve tested, but budget alternatives like the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/training/indoor-trainers/tacx-flow-smart-review/">Tacx Flow Smart</a> offer an affordable entry point into interactive indoor cycling, with fewer compromises than you might expect.</p>
<h2>2. Be prepared before you start your session</h2>
<p>One of the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/indoor-cycling-benefits/">benefits of indoor cycling</a> is how incredibly time-efficient it can be.</p>
<p>With no interruptions from traffic, road junctions and the like, it’s far easier to maximise the potential of every minute spent on the bike when training indoors.</p>
<p>Doing so means being properly prepared before you get on the bike, though. Having all of your essential accessories ready and within reach will help you avoid any unnecessary interruptions to your flow.</p>

<p>For example, if you’re doing structured interval training sessions on <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/training/training-software/trainerroad-training-software-review/">TrainerRoad</a> or <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advertising-feature/wahoo-systm-can-fast-track-your-training/">Wahoo Systm</a>, or a <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/best-workouts-training-plans-zwift/">Zwift Workout</a>, you don’t want to run out of water in the middle of a long interval at FTP (<a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/what-is-ftp-and-why-it-matters-for-cyclists/">Functional Threshold Power</a>).</p>
<p>Likewise, if you’ve joined a <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/zwift-group-rides/">virtual group ride</a> or <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/zwift-racing/">Zwift race</a>, having to stop to refill a bottle, or having to get off the bike because you’ve forgotten to turn on your fan, likely means losing the draft of the group you’re in, and the end of any hopes of a good result.</p>
<p>Here’s our list of essential <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/turbo-trainer-accessories/">turbo trainer accessories</a>;</p>
<ul><li>Fan for cooling</li>
<li>At least one full water bottle. Take two if you’re not sure how long your session will last</li>
<li>Towel or set of sweat bands</li>
<li>Fully charged wireless headphones</li>
<li>Trainer mat</li>
<li>Table for your phone or smart device</li>
<li>Some food or an emergency gel / energy bar</li>
</ul><h2>3. Have a goal</h2>
<p>If you’ve got all the kit and taken one giant leap into the world of interactive indoor cycling, the next thing to do is formulate some kind of goal or plan for each session.</p>
<p>You can have plenty of fun exploring virtual roads, but following a training plan or doing events, group rides or races, is, in our experience, even better.</p>

<p>There’s nothing quite like a competitive edge for allowing you to access the inner depths of your suitcase of courage, or a training plan to hold you to account and give you the motivation you need to start a session.</p>
<p>And, just like in the real world, being sociable and joining a community can massively enrich your experience.</p>
<p>On Zwift, you can join one of the many races, events or group rides happening every day or set up your own <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/zwift-group-rides/">Zwift MeetUp</a> and invite whoever you’d like to take part.</p>
<p>If you’re using a different indoor cycling app, you can use a third-party communications app, such as Discord or Facebook Messenger, to meet digitally and ride together on your indoor cycling app of choice.</p>

<h2>4. Take a fitness test</h2>
<p>If improving your fitness is a goal for you, then setting a personal benchmark to measure yourself against is a key step.</p>
<p>Though there are exceptions, most indoor cycling apps use FTP as a means of adjusting your training zones for interval-based workouts.</p>
<p>Because of this, having a reasonably accurate FTP setting is crucial to optimising your training.</p>
<p>There are two standard ways of <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/how-to-take-ftp-test-zwift/">taking an FTP test on Zwift</a>. The classic FTP tests involve a warm-up protocol followed by a 20-minute maximal effort.</p>

your training zones.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Zwift</i></span></div>
<p>If you’re using TrainerRoad, there’s also an option of an FTP test comprising of two 8-minute maximal efforts, with a short rest inbetween.</p>
<p>There are also Ramp tests in both Zwift and TrainerRoad, which begin easy then progressively ramp up the power until you hit your limit.</p>
<p>You only need to do one, but after each test is complete, each app will do its internal calculations for you automatically and give you an FTP figure.</p>
<p>For those who really enjoy punishment, there is another, unofficial way to test your FTP; a virtual mountain time trial up the infamous Alpe du Zwift.</p>
<p>The longer duration of the effort up this 12.22km climb (my <a href="https://www.strava.com/activities/3292821740/segments/2684508241388558941">personal record stands at 49:29</a>) typically results in a more accurate FTP setting, and going for a PR time can offer some extra motivation.</p>
<p>It’s by no means the easy option, though, so save it for a day when you’re feeling motivated.</p>

<p>Instead of FTP, Wahoo Systm uses what it calls 4DP (Four Dimensional Power) instead. 4DP tests four different aspects of your fitness, ranging from endurance all the way through to sprinting power.</p>
<p>As a result, System’s Full Frontal fitness test is longer and more varied than typical FTP tests on many other indoor cycling apps.</p>
<p>Wahoo says having this extra information about your current abilities enables Systm to tailor workouts to your personal strengths and weaknesses with greater specificity.</p>
<p>Systm also includes its version of a ramp test, called the Half Monty, which can be used to update your fitness numbers without needing to do the Full Frontal test every single time.</p>

<h2>5. Use ERG mode strategically</h2>
<p><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/fitness-and-training/erg-mode/">ERG mode</a> is a setting that tells a smart trainer to hold you at a set power output by automatically adjusting the resistance to match your cadence.</p>
<p>There can be a temptation to use it for all workouts, as it can take away the need to perform big gear changes between intervals, and make it easier to precisely hit the target power level at your preferred cadence.</p>
<p>All of that is great, but ERG mode isn’t suitable for every kind of workout, so it’s best used strategically.</p>

the smart trainer to match your cadence.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Zwift</i></span></div>
<p>ERG mode is fantastic for steady intervals lasting around 30 seconds or longer. In these instances there’s plenty of time for the trainer to ramp the resistance up and down smoothly.</p>
<p>For shorter intervals, though, it can introduce problems.</p>
<p>When doing sprints in ERG mode, undershooting the required power will cause a smart trainer to keep adding more resistance, in an attempt to tease more effort out of your legs.</p>
<p>If you can’t stay on top of your <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/skills/what-is-cycling-cadence/">cadence</a>, it’s easy to fall into what’s known as the “spiral of death”.</p>
<p>This is where the trainer keeps increasing the resistance causing your cadence to keep slowing, which prompts the trainer to increase the resistance even further. Eventually, you grind to an exhausted halt.</p>

<p>If this happens to you (as it has to me), don’t panic. Simply stop pedalling for a few seconds, and your smart trainer will automatically ease off the resistance and allow you to get back up to speed.</p>
<p>That aside, being able to smoothly click through the gears as you ramp up the power in a sprint is also an important skill to practice.</p>
<p>If you’re training on Zwift and using the Zwift companion app on your smartphone, it’s possible to turn ERG mode on and off during a workout. This can be a convenient option for workouts containing a mix of interval types.</p>

Cervélo says the bike was designed specifically for Team Jumbo-Visma riders Marianne Vos and Wout Van Aert, who hold 10 cyclocross world championship titles between them.</p>
<p>The R5-CX is currently only available to the pros, but it will be released to the general public next summer, making it Cervélo’s first production cyclocross bike.</p>
<p>While Cervélo says it draws much inspiration from the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/road-bikes/cervelo-r5-disc-review/">Cervélo R5 road bike</a>, this new cyclocross bike has a number of key differences thanks to Vos and Van Aert’s input.</p>
<p>The bike has a threaded bottom bracket, which is unusual for Cervélo, alongside a double seatpost clamp and plenty of tyre clearance. The geometry of the bike makes some concessions to cyclocross. It retains the same reach as the R5 road bike, but has a lower stack height.</p>
<p>If you are particularly eagle-eyed, you may have spotted the Cervélo R5-CX being raced by Vos on the North American World Cup scene last month, where she won at Waterloo and Iowa.</p>

but you’re a former world champ? It makes one for you, of course.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Cervélo </i></span></div>
<p>The R5-CX has a threaded <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/the-complete-guide-to-bottom-bracket-standards/">bottom bracket</a>. This is notable for Cervélo, which has long stuck to its BBRight press-fit bottom bracket.</p>
<p>The switch makes sense because cyclocross bikes are exposed to an awful lot of muck and grime, frequent washing and regular strip downs – all things that aren’t particularly favourable with a press-fit bottom bracket.</p>
<p>However, things aren’t so straightforward. Cervélo has kept the asymmetric cup design on BBRight and opted for T47 threads. It uses an inboard cup on the left-hand side and an outboard cup on the right-hand side.</p>
<p>This might be okay for the pros, but it might cause bottom-bracket buying headaches – as if we needed more of those – once the bike is released to us mere mortals next year.</p>
<p>The bottom bracket on the R5-CX is 11mm higher than on the R5 road bike to create greater clearance over obstacles.</p>

class="im-image-caption"> <i>Cervélo </i></span></div>
<p>The R5-CX gets the same D-shaped seatpost as the R5.</p>
<p>The engineers at Cervélo say the R5-CX was originally going to have a standard round seatpost, as on the brand’s <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/2021-cervelo-aspero-5/">Áspero gravel bike</a>, but the D-shaped seatpost was requested by Vos and Van Aert. Presumably, this is because they are familiar and get on well with the D-shaped design on the R5 road bike.</p>
<p>Another request from the two Jumbo-Visma riders was a double seatpost clamp. Cervélo says this is to “keep the saddle facing forward in case of a crash”, which seems an odd statement considering a D-shaped seatpost won’t rotate like a round one.</p>
<p>A more understandable reason for the extra clamp mounted on the post is to ensure you get exactly the right saddle height after removing the post. Saddle height also isn’t affected by the heavy bumps the riders are likely to put through the saddle during a race, for example when riding over rough ground or after less-than-perfect remounts.</p>

design features requested by Vos and Van Aert.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Cervélo </i></span></div>
<p>The R5-CX is compatible with electronic drivetrains only and cable routing is internal, which Cervélo says is to minimise water ingress.</p>
<p>The bike we have seen is fitted with a top-of-the-line <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/shimano-dura-ace-di2-r9200/">Shimano Dura-Ace groupset</a> and wheels.</p>
<p>For UCI-sanctioned cyclocross events, the maximum tyre size is 33mm, and this is what has been fitted to the R5-CX we have seen. The frame is said to have ample clearance to help shed mud and could likely take much larger tyres, but choosing to maximise that clearance with a bigger tyre size may affect the R5-CX’s handling geometry.</p>
<h2>Not the first cyclocross bike</h2>
<p>It’s worth noting that while the R5-CX will be the first Cervélo production cyclocross bike, it’s not the first ‘cross bike the Canadian brand has made.</p>
<p>That honour goes to the R3 made for Jonathan Page in 2007, which he rode to victory as the first American to win a cyclocross world cup podium.</p>

I don’t know about you, dear reader, but this year has been a blur.</p>
<p>With <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/black-friday-bike-deals/">Black Friday</a> out of the way, we’ll be on to Christmas <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-cycling-gifts/">gift guides</a> and related end-of-the-year content in no time, so watch out for that.</p>
<p>Before then, though, it’s time for another edition of <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/first-look-friday/">First Look Friday</a>, our weekly round-up of the latest news, reviews and new tech.</p>
<p>This week was a bit slow for news, but Orbea announced its new <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/2022-orbea-rise-h/">Rise H eMTB</a> and Giant revealed the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/the-new-giant-trance-advanced-pro-29-trail-bike-gets-more-travel-and-adjustable-geometry-for-2022/">2022 Trance Advanced Pro 29</a> trail bike.</p>
<p>There were plenty of reviews, though. Monday saw us run the rule over the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/wheels/wheel-sets/swiss-side-hadron%c2%b2-ultimate-500-disc-review/">Swiss Side Hadron² Ultimate 500 Disc</a> wheelset, while we published reviews of the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/shoes/road-bike-shoes/q36-5-unique-shoe-review/">Q36.5 Unique road cycling shoes</a> and the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/tyres/gravel-bike-tyres/continental-terra-speed/">Continental Terra Speed gravel tyres</a> on Tuesday.</p>
<p>We also republished our buyer’s guide to the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-waterproof-jackets-for-cyclists/">best waterproof jackets for cyclists</a>, so if you’re the kind of brave soul who doesn’t mind venturing out on the bike in inclement weather, be sure to have a look at our picks.</p>
<p>On the other hand, if, like me, you prefer to stay indoors and keep warm and dry more often than not, now is a great time to invest in a <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-smart-trainer/">smart trainer</a> (if you haven’t already).</p>
<p>With that out of the way, let’s get on to some of the exciting new cycling tech to land at BikeRadar headquarters this week.</p>

popular tubeless-ready road tyre, the GP5000 TL.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Simon von Bromley / Immediate Media</i></span></div>
<p>Hot off a win at the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/pro-bike/paris-roubaix-tech-trends/">2021 Paris-Roubaix</a>, the recently announced <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/continentals-grand-prix-5000-s-tr/">Continental GP5000 S TR</a> is the updated version of its popular <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/tyres/road-bike-tyres/continental-gp5000-tl-tyre-review/">GP5000 TL tubeless tyre</a>.</p>
<p>Headline improvements over the GP5000 TL are claimed to be a 50g reduction in weight for the 700 x 25c size, increased sidewall protection and a 20 per cent reduction in rolling resistance.</p>
<p>Continental also claims the new GP5000 S TR tyres offer easier <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/how-to-set-up-road-tubeless-tyres/">tubeless setup</a>, and can be used on hookless rims, up to a maximum inflation pressure of 73 PSI / 5.0 BAR.</p>
<p>In addition to standard black sidewalls, the GP5000 S TR is now available with <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/tan-wall-tyres-hot-or-not/">tan sidewalls</a> too (though Continental calls them ‘transparent’), which is a huge boon for those of us who love the classic look they offer.</p>

<p>We’ve been lucky enough to receive a set of 700 x 28c GP5000 S TR tyres with transparent sidewalls. Compared to a lightly used set of 700 x 28c GP5000 TL tyres, the new GP5000 S TR tyres weigh 35g less per tyre, spot on the claimed weight of 280g for this size.</p>
<p>The larger 700 x 28c tyres don’t see the same 50g weight reduction per tyre as the smaller 7000 x 26c model, then, but 70g per set of tyres is a small improvement regardless.</p>
<p>Look out for a full review soon, where we’ll try to tease out whether the 20 per cent claimed reduction in rolling resistance also stands up to scrutiny.</p>
<p>The continental GP5000 S TR costs £69.95 / €79.90 per tyre.</p>

<p>Hunt’s 54 Aerodynamicist Carbon Disc wheelset is, as the name suggests, a set of carbon wheels with 54mm deep aero rims, for disc-brake bikes.</p>
<p>Designed in conjunction with Hunt’s engineering and product manager, and all-round aerodynamics expert, <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/bikeradar-meets-luisa-grappone/">Luisa Grappone</a>, the Aerodynamicist wheelset range features trickle-down technology from Hunt’s top-tier <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/wheels/wheel-sets/hunt-60-limitless-aero-disc-wheelset-review/">Limitless Aero Disc wheelset</a>, at a more affordable price point of £899.</p>
<p>That means a wide, blunted rim shape, though in this case the result is less extreme than on the Limitless wheelsets.</p>

<p>The 54 Aerodynamicist wheelset features a hooked, tubeless-ready rim with a 29mm external rim width and a 20mm internal rim width, optimised for 700 x 25 and 700 x 28c tyres.</p>
<p>Our test set weighs 1,580g, with tubeless rim tape installed, and tubeless valves and spare spokes are included in the box as standard.</p>
<p>In terms of aerodynamics, Hunt claims its own wind tunnel testing showed the 54 Aerodynamicist outperforms key competitors such as the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/dt-swiss-arc-dicut-1100-1400/">DT Swiss Arc 1100 Dicut 48</a> and Zipp 303 NSW by 0.40 and 0.96 watts respectively.</p>
<p>That’s clearly not something you’d be able to detect in the real world, but it’s perhaps reassuring to know these wheels should fall in the right ballpark in terms of aero performance.</p>

<p><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/brand/brooks/">Brooks</a> is best known for its saddles, but it is now also producing a range of <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/bikepacking-bags/">bikepacking bags</a> designed for <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/routes-and-rides/heres-what-you-need-for-a-bikepacking-adventure/">bikepacking and adventuring</a>.</p>
<p>The Scape range uses waterproof materials, with modular designs and a hard-wearing, “made-to-last” construction.</p>
<p>For shorter adventures, the Scape handlebar pouch, top tube bag and saddle pocket bag offer a handy way to increase storage on your bike without overloading it with gear.</p>
<p>The handlebar pouch, for example, offers a healthy 3-litre capacity, which is enough room for a small to medium-sized camera, plus accessories.</p>

on-bike storage, but larger bags are available if you need more capacity.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Simon von Bromley / Immediate Media</i></span></div>
<p>The top tube bag has a smaller, 0.9-litre capacity, which looks perfectly sized for sandwiches (or whatever <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/nutrition/best-energy-gels-for-cycling/">energy food</a> you like). If you run a slammed front-end setup, though, it might protrude above the height of the stem top cap.</p>
<p>Lastly, the saddle pocket bag has a 0.7-litre capacity, which is enough room for two spare <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/bike-inner-tubes/">inner tubes</a>, plus a <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-multi-tool/">multi-tool</a> and <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/6-of-the-best-tyre-levers/">tyre levers</a>.</p>
<p>If you’re planning bigger adventures, the Scape range also includes larger bags, such as the handlebar roll bag, larger saddle bags and large and small <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/accessories/bags/panniers/">pannier bags</a>.</p>

<p>Outdoor Provisions was founded with a view to addressing what it believed was a major problem; it felt traditional energy bars were “bad”, in many ways.</p>
<p>Made in the UK and designed for “bikepackers, campfire cooks and ultra-distance lovers” Outdoor Provisions energy snacks are said to “actually taste nice”.</p>
<p>The starter pack offers a sample of the various types of energy snacks Outdoor Provisions offers. For £16, you get four energy bars and four nut butter pouches.</p>
<p>The energy bars use recognisable ingredients such as sultanas, raisins, oats, almonds and dried bananas. They also come in a range of flavours with a British tilt, such as cherry bakewell, Kendal mint cake, parkin and bara brith.</p>

<p>The nut butter pouches seem more like a WholeFoods replacement for energy gels. Rather than using sugar to offer a quick energy spike, the nut butter pouches are designed to give you a hit of slow-release energy, which is perhaps more appropriate for longer, slower rides.</p>
<p>Outdoor Provisions also says the wrappers are compostable, but, as always, we’d still suggest taking all of your rubbish home with you.</p>

Today, it’s the turn of the Trance Advanced Pro 29 trail bike.</p>
<p>This time around, the new Trance Advanced Pro 29 gets a fully revamped carbon frame, more aggressive, adjustable geometry, more rear-wheel travel and some in-demand internal frame storage.</p>
<p>Giant says the focus of this new trail bike is speed and efficiency when tackling technical terrain.</p>

<p>Giant first introduced us to the Trance Advanced Pro 29 four years ago, placing it somewhere between its lightweight cross-country race whippets and burly, heavy-hitting trail bikes.</p>
<p>At that point, you could argue it was one of the earliest short-travel trail machines – commonly now referred to as downcountry bikes.</p>
<p>While the new bike may sound a touch more aggressive, with the hike in rear-wheel travel and changes to the geometry, its singletrack-slaying intentions are very much the same.</p>

internal frame storage.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Giant</i></span></div>
<p>One of the headlines here has to be the new internal frame storage. Giant has included a hatch on the upper side of the down tube that allows you to squirrel away key tools should you need to carry out a trailside repair.</p>
<p>Giant claims there’s enough room to stash a CO2 inflator, inner tube, multi-tool and even a snack, which can be wrapped up in the water-resistant bag that’s included. The hatch cover has fittings for a bottle cage, too.</p>

suspension system.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Giant</i></span></div>
<p>Well, yes, potentially. The 5mm bump in travel over the previous Trance Advanced Pro 29 takes rear-wheel travel up to 120mm, which should help to soak up a lot of the trail chatter but remain efficient and taut enough to feel sprightly when you put the power down.</p>
<p>The 120mm of travel is delivered via Giant’s tried and trusted Maestro, twin-link suspension system. This includes the new Advanced forged composite upper-rocker link, which Giant claims to be not just lighter, but stronger and stiffer than the equivalent link made from aluminium.</p>
<p>Over the years, we’ve always been impressed with the Maestro system, and any long-term test bikes we’ve had have always stood up well to the elements, thanks in part to their double-sealed pivot bearings.</p>

<p>There’s enough room through the rear stays to fit a 2.5in tyre, while ISCG-05 tabs around the bottom bracket allow you to fit a chainguide and bash guard if you’re looking to tackle terrain that’s a little more extreme.</p>
<p>Neatly integrated frame protection helps to shield the frame from rock strikes and trail debris, while silencing any chain slap.</p>
<h2>Giant Trance Advanced Pro 29 geometry details</h2>
<p>As has been the common theme with the other Trance models launched over this past year or so, the Trance Advanced Pro 29 also welcomes the ability to have its geometry adjusted.</p>

depending on what terrain they’re riding.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Giant</i></span></div>
<p>Flip chips located in the seatstay/rocker link pivot can be rotated to alter the Trance Advanced Pro 29 angles. There are two settings to choose from – high or low – which differ by 0.7 degrees at the head and seat angle, and alter the bottom-bracket height by 10mm.</p>
<p>In the high setting, the head angle is a claimed 66.2 degrees, while the seat angle sits at a steep 77 degrees (or 78 on the size small frame). This setting also provides 35mm of bottom-bracket drop.</p>
<p>Shift to the low setting, and Giant claims the head angle slackens out to 65.5 degrees, making it possibly the most relaxed in the downcountry bike category. The seat angle does slacken off slightly to 76.3 degrees, but should still feel steep enough for efficient pedalling when seated. The low setting delivers a hefty 45mm of bottom-bracket drop.</p>
<p>Giant has extended the Trance Advanced Pro 29’s reach, too, with figures ranging from 430mm on the size small through to 515mm on the extra large when in the high setting. Reach measurements decrease by 8mm when you switch to the low setting.</p>

paces.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Giant</i></span></div>
<p>In a bid to help create a well-centred, balanced ride, Giant has opted to use 437mm effective chainstays across all sizes. These grow to 439mm when the bike is in the low setting.</p>
<p>Will these two settings provide two different sets of ride characteristics? The proof, as they say, is always in the pudding, so as soon as we’ve ridden the bike, we’ll report back.</p>
<p>Giant says the high position should be good for riding slower, tighter technical terrain, while the low setting offers more stability and speed.</p>
<p>In our experience, we’ve generally preferred the low setting and the confidence it provides, especially through the turns. That said, having 10mm of bottom-bracket adjustment is nothing to be sniffed at if you’re planning on riding really chunky, rocky trails where you need a decent amount of pedal clearance.</p>
<h2>Giant Trance Advanced Pro 29 closest competitors</h2>
<p>The lightweight trail or downcountry market (or whatever you want to call it) has really gathered momentum these last couple of years.</p>
<p>While some brands use their cross-country offerings as a template before boosting rear-wheel travel and sticking a burlier fork in place, along with a tougher set of tyres (such as the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/mountain-bikes/full-suspension-mountain-bikes/cannondale-scalpel-se-ltd-lefty-review/">Cannondale Scalpel SE LTD</a> or <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/mountain-bikes/full-suspension-mountain-bikes/specialized-epic-evo-expert-review/">Specialized Epic EVO Expert</a> that we reviewed earlier this year), other brands such as Nukeproof trim the fat from their trail bikes to create something like the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/mountain-bikes/full-suspension-mountain-bikes/nukeproof-reactor-290-carbon-st-review/">Reactor 290 Carbon ST</a>.</p>

<p>While the former approach tends to yield super-fast, efficient bikes that’ll cover ground quickly, they can struggle on more demanding terrain. Conversely, Nukeproof’s approach helps to create a bike that’s more than at home on tough, technical terrain, but doesn’t quite possess the same muscular zip as those derived from cross-country frames.</p>
<p>Then, of course, there are bikes such as the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/mountain-bikes/full-suspension-mountain-bikes/transition-spur-x01-review/">Transition Spur X01</a> that we reviewed earlier this year and gave full marks. As a bike that’s been designed specifically for this type of riding (it’s neither been spawned from a lightweight cross-country bike or a burlier trail bike) compromise is limited and the end result is a rocket ship of a bike, whether it’s pointed up or down.</p>
<p>If we were Giant, we’d have set our sights firmly on a bike such as the Transition Spur and attempted to better it. As it stands, it’s a category leader for sure and one that we feel sets the standard.</p>
<p>We can’t ignore the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/mountain-bikes/full-suspension-mountain-bikes/santa-cruz-tallboy-cc-x01-reserve-review/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">Santa Cruz Tallboy</a> either, which matches the new Trance Advanced Pro 29 in terms of front and rear travel, as well as intentions on the trail.</p>
<h2>Giant Trance Advanced Pro 29 range overview and spec details</h2>
<p>Giant is offering three different Trance Advanced Pro 29 models to choose from in 2022.</p>
<p>All three models use the same Advanced-Grade composite frames, Fox suspension, adjustable TranzX droppers that are easy to adjust (the small gets a 120-150mm post, medium a 140-170mm post, while the large and extra-large use a 170-200mm post) and Shimano brakes.</p>
<p>The tyres across all models are identical, too. Giant has wisely specced a Maxxis Minion DHF 3C MaxxTerra EXO 29×2.5in WT up-front and an Aggressor EXO 29×2.5in at the rear.</p>

<ul><li>$120 / £65 as tested</li>
<li>Outstanding value</li>
<li>MIPS tech and user-friendly features</li>
</ul><p>There was a time when <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/what-is-mips/">MIPS</a> technology held a significant premium and was used almost exclusively in the most expensive of helmets. Those times are very much in the past, with Bell’s Avenue MIPS being a perfect example.</p>
<p>Its retention system is easy to adjust and very effective, while the polycarbonate shell features 18 vents to keep things nice and cool, as well as reflective highlights to boost visibility.</p>
<p>Its 310g weight is going to be heavier than quite a few helmets at this price, but we think it’s a sound trade-off when you consider just how well this lid performs for its price tag.</p>

<ul><li>£250 / $275 / €320 as tested</li>
<li>Cutting-edge safety features</li>
<li>Excellent ventilation, weight and claimed aero performance</li>
</ul><p>We found the S-Works Evade to be supremely comfortable and well ventilated, and it’s claimed to also be very aerodynamic –<a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/best-aero-road-helmets-8-tested-and-rated/"> one of our tests backs this up too</a>.</p>
<p>Adding additional safety features such as MIPS and ANGi to the already stellar <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/helmets/road-cycling-helmets/specialized-s-works-evade-ii-aero-helmet-review/">S-Works Evade II</a>, makes this easily one of the best helmets on the market.</p>
<p>It’s not cheap, but <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/specialized-angi-crash-sensor-fee/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">the subscription charge for the ANGi technology has been scrapped</a> and it feels like a real step forward for helmet technology.</p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The build leads to a helmet weight of 375g for a size large, although we didn’t notice the extra weight in testing.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">With WaveCel having a bit more give than the usual EPS foam helmet material, the Starvos WaveCel is comfortable. There’s good adjustability and an extra-large option to fit heads from 60cm to 66cm, too.</span></p>

<li>Good ventilation and claimed aero performance</li>
<li>Comfortable and easy to use Boa-dial adjuster</li>
</ul><p>The Velocis was redesigned recently and the formerly traditional-looking helmet now sits firmly in the aero lid category.</p>
<p>The helmet is very comfortable and despite its aero-leanings, is still very well ventilated.</p>
<p>There are a handful of niggles that prevent the helmet from being a full five-star performer, but it’s safe to say that the Velocis is very unlikely to disappoint.</p>

<p>At 355g, it’s not the lightest helmet on the market, but we didn’t really notice that in use, and we love how well finished the helmet is.</p>
<p>It’s also wonderfully comfortable and Bontrager claims it’s very aerodynamic.</p>

<ul><li>£150 / €200 as tested</li>
<li>Great quality and comfort</li>
<li>Warm in very hot weather</li>
</ul><p>The Endura Pro SL helmet uses Koryod impact-protection technology, which is said to help protect your brain from direct and angled impacts. The protection comes in the form of honeycomb-like tubes inside the helmet, and plush padding ensures these don’t lead to an uncomfortable fit.</p>
<p>In fact, the Pro SL is very comfortable to wear. It has a cradle with vertical adjustment and a ratchet that lets you dial fit.</p>
<p>The exterior of the helmet has a hard exterior shell, which meant after months of testing the helmet still looked new.</p>
<p>One thing to bear in mind is we found the helmet was warm in hot weather.</p>

<ul><li>£80 / $85 / €100 / AU$99 as tested</li>
<li>Great looks, a drag-friendly shape and MIPS</li>
<li>Good fit and adjustability</li>
</ul><p>The Giro Foray MIPS pays more than a nod to Giro’s range-topping Synthe aero helmet, with a smooth, rounded compact shell and truncated rear to maintain efficiency in all head positions.</p>
<p>The in-mould construction means that the polycarbonate outer shell is fused to the EPS core for strength, but it doesn’t extend to the underside.</p>
<p>Its MIPS system adds to the cost, but with that you are also getting great reassurance and, along with the super-adjustable Roc Loc 5 cradle, an excellent fit.</p>
<p>Four internal pads keep things comfortable and five pronounced internal channels ventilate the majority of the head very well at all speeds, making this model an attractive, safe and great-value choice.</p>

<li>Superb ventilation and aero performance, delivered by CFD design and wind tunnel testing</li>
<li>Octo Fit retention system offers huge adjustment range</li>
</ul><p>The Protone is claimed to be designed to maintain aerodynamics and airflow in any common riding position, and however you move your head, it remains consistently quiet.</p>
<p>Its skull-hugging compact profile is the result of extensive wind tunnel testing and it’s certainly less bulky than some.</p>
<p>Ventilation is superb thanks to eight forward-looking vents and six large exit ports, and the Octo Fit retention system offers a huge adjustment range to keep everything secure and comfy.</p>

<ul><li>£70 / $100 / €68 as tested</li>
<li>Value-packed helmet</li>
<li>ARS adjuster works well</li>
</ul><p>The Lazer Blade is a value-packed lightweight helmet that is available in a range of colours.</p>
<p>Like many of Lazer’s helmets – including its range-topping <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/helmets/road-cycling-helmets/lazer-z1-helmet-review/">Z1</a> – the Blade uses its ARS adjuster, which sees the adjuster barrel fitted to the top of the helmet. This is said to make it easier to perform adjustments one-handed.</p>
<p>The helmet can often be found with generous discounts, so it’s worth shopping around for the best deal.</p>

<li>Sharp style</li>
<li>Good safety credentials</li>
</ul><p>With an RRP of £245 / €270 / $297 it’s certainly not cheap, but Mavic does pack a lot of tech into its Comete Ultimate MIPS helmet to try and justify that price. As well as a MIPS liner, it has a carbon fibre reinforced structure made from EPS-4D foam that’s said to be more effective at absorbing impacts than standard EPS foam.</p>
<p>Ventilation is good and the polycarbonate shell and angular vents give the helmet a very sharp appearance. As you’d expect of any top-end lid, Mavic claims the helmet is aerodynamically efficient too.</p>

<ul><li>£110 / $99 / €130 / AU$199.95 as tested</li>
<li>Impressive cooling for an aero helmet</li>
<li>Great range of adjustment</li>
</ul><p>MET’s Rivale tips the scales at just 257g (for a large) and is said to save 3 watts at 50kph, equating to a claimed second’s advantage over comparable vented helmets at the same pace.</p>
<p>As well as that, it complies with CE and the tougher Australian AS and American USPC standards.</p>
<p>The Rivale’s shape is more rounded than most aero helmets. The internal padding is minimal yet well placed and the micro-adjust dial offers plenty of tensioning to keep it securely on your head.</p>
<p>We especially loved the 4cm vertical adjustment in the retaining cradle, which enables you to position the helmet in just the right spot.</p>

<ul><li>£265 / €300 as tested</li>
<li>Comfortable and lightweight</li>
<li>Great fit and adjustability</li>
</ul><p>The Trenta (that’s 30 in Italian) was created to celebrate 30 years of Italian brand MET.</p>
<p>With no fewer than 19 vents, the Trenta’s shell is somewhere between that of an aero lid and a traditional vented helmet. Not only does it look great, but its excellent fit and slim profile quickly won us over.</p>
<p>It’s light too, we weighed our pre-production sample at 228g for a size medium.</p>
<p>The Trenta is also compatible with MET’s clever clip-on light, which pumps out plenty of lumens where they matter, yet doesn’t interrupt the helmet’s function or adjustments.</p>

<ul><li>£199 / $250 / €250 as tested</li>
<li>Very comfortable and light, with good ventilation at speed</li>
<li>Narrow profile that looks great</li>
</ul><p>Oakley only got into the cycling helmet market relatively recently, but its ARO5 aero lid did not disappoint.</p>
<p>The relatively minimalist helmet uses four large front vents to scoop in air, with two smaller vents at the back to exhaust excess heat.</p>
<p>The Boa-dial retention system – which adjusts a soft cord that runs around the circumference of the helmet – is also fairly nifty and we found it to work very well.</p>

</ul><p>As seen on the heads of Team Bahrain McLaren riders such as Mark Cavendish and Mikel Landa, Rudy Project’s Spectrum helmet combines good looks and ventilation with claims of good aerodynamic efficiency.</p>
<p>While we so far haven’t been able to test the aero claims, our tester found a lot to like elsewhere: comfortable and well ventilated, and an especially good fit on larger heads (the size large fits up to a 63cm head circumference).</p>

<li>Fast and airy, with good claimed aero performance</li>
<li>MIPS protection and vent bungs are included for winter riding</li>
</ul><p>The Cadence Plus is Scott’s aero road helmet solution. Its polycarbonate shell completely covers the vulnerable EPS core, apart from inside the vents, and its smooth, elongated shape and mostly enclosed shell look purposeful.</p>
<p>The occipital cradle of Scott’s Halo Fit System has three heights, and circumference adjustment is via a rotary dial. A clever separator keeps the straps far apart so they don’t clash with your ears, all helping to make the Cadence Plus one of the best-fitting and most secure helmets we’ve tried recently.</p>
<p>The price for a top-flight MIPS-equipped helmet is also good.</p>

</ul><p>The Propero 3 ANGi blends impressive features, ride performance and sharp looks inspired by Specialized’s top-end Prevail lid.</p>
<p>We rated the fit, as well as the helmet’s ability to keep our heads cool, and the 4X DryLite webbing inside that won’t stretch out with sweat or water is another bonus.</p>
<p>MIPS technology boosts safety, alongside Specialized’s own ANGi angular and g-force indicator, which connects to your smartphone and automatically calls an emergency contact should it detect you are in an accident. As a bonus, the ANGi system requires no paid subscription.</p>

<li>Claimed excellent aero performance</li>
<li>Dedicated sunglasses port and lots of colour options</li>
</ul><p>Abus’s GameChanger is a distinct-looking helmet, and one that impressed the <i>BikeRadar</i> test team.</p>
<p>The firmly aero-centric lid has a slim wind-cheating profile that Abus claims is among the best-performing on the market.</p>
<p>The ventilation isn’t as good as some other aero helmets, but the fit and build quality just about make up for this, resulting in a solid four-star performer.</p>

<ul><li>£229 / €250 as tested</li>
<li>Well ventilated and lightweight</li>
<li>High-quality construction and finish</li>
</ul><p>Based on a similar overall shape to the aero-focused Abus GameChanger, the AirBreaker focuses more on ventilation and cooling, which it does impressively.</p>
<p>Made in Italy, and designed in collaboration with the Movistar professional team, it’s of high-quality construction and is very light at just 229g for a size large.</p>
<p>Abus claims its small overall profile, along with design cues taken from the GameChanger, also confers some aero benefits.</p>
