Cycling Plus Issue 353 (June 2019)#books-and-magazines #cycling-plus #magazines
This month’s mag has a distinct gravel flavour. Our main bike test this month includes six bikes designed for 'gravel riding', with chunky tyres, smaller wheels and kinder gear ratios, from the likes of Pinnacle, Cannondale, Genesis, plus First Ride reviews of two more gravel bikes – the Cipollini MCM Allroad and Genesis Day One 20, and a gravel skills masterclass with top ‘crosser Nick Craig. There's still plenty of tarmac-focussed bikes and kit, including tests of the Bianchi Aria E-Road, Enigma Etape Disc bikes, and kit such as Specialized’s S-Works Exos shoes, ENVE SES 3.4 Disc wheels, Campagnolo Super Record 12-Speed Disc groupset, Specialized Power Crank and the Kask Valegro helmet. In Big Ride, we head to the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Skye, and in Training Camp we learn how to preserve energy like the world’s best sprinters. If that’s not all, the June issue comes with a pair of performance socks, clothing!
