Weekly Reviews Roundup #3

Pretty slim pickings this week. It must be something to do with it being the end of the month.

Let’s hope the start of February next week brings some more reviews with it!

Still, if you’re in the market for a rear light, a skull cap, a mountain bike tyre or some tyre sealant you’re in luck!

“It’s black, it fits, it keeps your head warm, it’s cheap; I like it. In use, it’s easy to forget you’re wearing it. Which is a good thing: no niggles with fit, and surprisingly warm for a non-windproof hat. And best of all, there’s a penny change from a tenner.”

“Very bright rear light for year-round all conditions use, though the Strobe mode could be annoying. Overall the Moon is an impressive package in terms of light output, build quality and price, £39.99 is a tenner cheaper than the slightly brighter TraceR. The brightness gives plenty of confidence that you’ll be visible even on the lower levels and the brightest mode is a bonus in thick fog even in daylight.”

Big picture: Continental’s Mountain King Protection tires are a superb all-around ripper available in 2.2 and 2.4 widths and all three tire diameters. If you don’t mind adding sealant a little more frequently, these should last you a good long time and, by providing killer traction, help you last a good long time.
