After extensive testing, we can’t think of a single reason not to love the wisely priced savant.

Easton has managed to eke out every last scrap of performance. At 135g it’s close to some XC stems in weight, but it feels and rides like something much burlier.

Decent edge to edge and PT Belt sub tread protection and a genuine 25mm wide carcass mean we’ve not had to repair any flats in it yet despite rough road use. It’s supple and smooth-rolling enough to score well on the rollers and feels fast enough for chain gang sessions on the road, and Panaracer’s ZSG Dual compound has always performed well in the wet.

The big boon is that the React three-layer fabric is truly waterproof - neither Mother Nature nor Outdoor Fitness has been able to throw anything at it that'll seep through.

We’ve thrown it at everything from rough summer bridleways to heavily-loaded urban winter commuting without it skipping a beat.

With both the lady shaped Spark having enough carrying capacity for a full day, these have become a real favourite, staying as comfortable and unnoticeable at the end of the day as they were at the start.

From the Spanish firm Etxeondo, these were a real surprise. Yes, they sit at hte premium end of the market, but they’re hard to match for comfort. The leg gripper relies solely on elasticated material rather than any rubbery contact point with the leg. It’s effective, though, and doesn’t create too much pressure, sitting comfortable on the thighs. The bib is a seamless construction, and easily the comfiest on test.

Pros: Comfort, looks, fit.

Even the largest computers don’t weigh that much, but if you’re paying out lots of dosh to trim component weights everywhere else on your bike there’s no reason why your computer should carry any extra mass.

Three sizes (1.5, two and three litre) of Antidote are available, the smaller volumes being more squat, and the three-litre version taller and thinner. There’s an internal baffle to support the shape (two and three-litre sizes only) and a large, quick-snap fill port, which means the oversized filling/cleaning hole needs only a quarter of a turn to fasten securely. All Antidote reservoirs also have removeable Pureflow hoses – this saves time as you don’t need to thread the tube out through your shoulder straps after every refill.

Despite the affordable price, the MT4 is Magura’s most adjustable and trail friendly brake, and a firm favourite of our test team.

The basic Carbotecture composite lever body is a chunkier, heavier design than the MT8, but this means better support for the solidly-anchored alloy lever. The MT4 is the only brake in the Magura lineup to get Bite Adjustment Technology (BAT...yes, really, acronym fans). This technology is a small knob on the lever, and it gives a useful amount of adjustment to cope with big hands or blade-on-the-bar setup preferences. There’s an Allen key reach adjust too.

The calliper is the same distinctive one-piece, twin-bridged design as more expensive MT’s, with easy pad access and better cooling than a closed-top calliper.

Cateye’s light is tough and durable, the mount is simple and solid, and the power button at the rear is stiff enough to prevent accidental turning on – though you might have to hold the light while operating it to stop it twisting around the bar. The beam pattern is really good, with a hot spot in the middle that gives a long reach, and controlled spill for peripheral vision and visibility.
