Altura is well known for its commuter products, but its packable Podium is every inch a road product. It packs very well into a cylinder shape perfectly designed for a rear jersey pocket, and uses Altura's proprietary React Fabric to impressive effect, providing a good barrier to the elements while retaining decent breathability.

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.

Being the most expensive inflator on the test the Air Chuck seemed the simplest in design and came with two 16g canisters. Like the rest on the test the push on head works with both Presta and Schrader valves, perfect for all bikes.

Standing out from the crowd by dint of its fluro body, the Abus comes equipped with a basic frame mount and a pair of keys. The shackle’s soft-feel coating promises to keep your bike blemish-free, while its 230mm length means it’ll readily go through frame, wheel and around railing.

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 helmet is secured with a Giro Roc-Loc retention system, and overall mass along with cooling system is good.

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.

Giro's kit is unashamedly top-end and this is certainly a classy looking jersey, in subtle colours and a classic design. Although it's nominally a road jersey, there's no reason whatsoever it can't be paired with a pair of baggies while smashing trails - so that's what I did with it.

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.
