Friday has come around yet again and it’s time to start planning those weekend miles. But before you do, we’ve got eleven tasty new products to show off that just landed into the hands of our Australian test crew.
From Suunto’s latest multi-sport adventure smart watch, to some New Zealand-made chain lube using sweep wool wax, and to one of the simplest bike storage devices you’ll ever see – read on.
New road bike gear
IsoWhey Sports nutritional products
A new player to the sports nutrition game, IsoWhey Sports offer a range of high-end nutrition products categorised into the three groups of ‘Pre’, ‘During’ and ‘Post’ exercise. They’re a brand that is co-title sponsoring one of Australia’s strongest cycling teams (formerly Avanti Racing).
In addition to a few energy gels, we received samples of the ‘Pre-Workout Fuel’, ‘Ultimate Endurance’ and ‘Electrolyte Formula’ powders and passed them onto a friend of BikeRadar – Matt Hoon, Phd and Exercise Science Lecturer at the Australian Catholic University.
Having checked out the products, Matt says both the Ultimate Endurance and Electrolyte products offer energy replacement through carbohydrate and rehydration and overlap with each other in some regards. “The Ultimate Endurance is more energy focused (40g of carb per serve, less electrolytes) while the Electrolyte is the opposite with more electrolytes and less carbs (21g per serve),” said Hoon.
