The big brother of SKS's familiar guard will accommodate tyres up to 32mm wide. They don't go under the brakes so the bike still gets mucky, but they do a very good job of keeping spray off the rider and are quick and easy to fit, with easy adjustment. Somewhat expensive, mind.

A reliable, no fuss track pump is a must have for every home workshop and any workplace with a lot cyclists - and the AirKompressor's about as simple and efficient as it gets. It's longer than many rival models, with an extra long body that ensures you get maximum volume per stroke; in fact we were able to inflate a regular road tyre to 100psi in an average of 30 strokes.

The stubby visor might be a nod towards off-road styling, but underneath the Fathom is effectively a road helmet - lightweight and well ventilated.

The new Super 2R uses their highly regarded Super 2 helmet as its foundation but adds a chin guard that clamps securely in place with three sturdy metal clasps. The chin guard also pushes into four of the 2R's vents, making for an even better connection. Removing it is easy enough too, though you'll need some finger strength to open the clasps. The chin guard is relatively light at 356g but isn't exactly small, so you'll need a pack with external strapping to carry it.

The Volt's narrowish beam makes it more suited to a road than off-road use, and the button is a little fiddly with gloved hands, but the mount fits most bars, the battery is replaceable and the whole design is slim, light and well made...

Available in three sizes - 23, 26, 28mm - it's the two wider ones that will interest most people for the added comfort they'll offer. Panaracer uses the same ZSG compound that's found in its other road tyres, with an 'anti-flat' casing to prevent punctures. As well as the mean streets, we've tried them on the bridleways, towpaths and rutted farm tracks and found them to be resilient, predictable and really grippy in the wet.

The Trailraker has always had incredible amounts of grip, let down by deformation at low pressures. Now it's available as a UST version, it'll hold its shape better and let you drop the psi below 30.

The Ultra 420 has a 12mm round steel shackle that's more than large enough to secure frame and rear wheel to any bikes stand. The key cylinder has been refined to make it even harder for anyone to pick the lock.

I wore it every day for two weeks - or at least I'd planned to. After a working week it was OK, after eight days... not so much. So it got a wash. And again, after another eight days.

Genuine Innovations makes a song and dance about the nifty features it's incorporated into the Proflate Elite, but is it worth the extra money? The fact it accepts both threaded and non-threaded cartridges makes sourcing refills easier, while the plastic cover prevents frozen hands and includes a nozzle cover to stop dirt getting in. It even locks the cartridge is automatically to prevent a full one from being unscrewed. These are handy features if you use one regularly, otherwise the extra bulk of the plastic casing might defeat the point of using CO2 as a lightweight get out of jail card.

Sometimes, when it's really cold, an insulated gilet is just the trick - they're also great stuff in a pack for minimal - bulk mid-ride insulation. The Primaloft insulation offers decent levels of warmth, without suffering too much if it gets wet.

At 297g it isn't that light, though frankly protecting your cerebellum shouldn't be the first place to think about shedding mass: security and comfort are the prime concerns. Bell's first-rate Twin Axis Gear retention system ensures a secure fit, the padding is in all the right places and cooling is up there with the best, thanks to its five large forward-facing vents.

On constant full power the Rapid X is very bright - but only runs for an hour. But in different modes it can illuminate for up to 30 hours, and its switch modes as the battery drains. In spite of its appearance, the rubber cover for the micro-USB port stayed very well sealed.

The Air Attack's six vents are connected by three deep interconnected channels, forcing air across the head, and the only clue that you're wearing a more enclosed helmet is not feeling as much direct breeze on your skin.

Tortec are probably best known for their good-quality range of bike racks but they've also got a range of mudguards and are expanding, with new bottle cages and bar tapes for this year. They're distributed by Zyro and we went to have a look at some of their recent additions recently, coming home with some of this new top-end bar-tape.
