Read Time:   |  May 20, 2020

Lockdown could be the perfect time to mix things up and get on your bike for some cross-training – here's the best running and cycling gear out this month

To infinity and beyond
Shock Absorber InfinitY Power Bra | £50

The Shock Absorber InfinitY Power Bra will provide comfort and anchor your breast tissue centrally; the adjustable back straps also help keep you properly strapped in. The flexible Y-shape back construction frees up your shoulders and the front zip ensures easy fitting – which we love!

Under the radar
Oakley Radar EV Path sunglasses | £161

The Oakley Radar EV Path improves in performance as your speed increases. A tall lens protects eyes and keeps you fog free. The Prizm lenses provide great contrast in glaring light and the frame is incredibly lightweight, coupled with an Unobtanium nosepad and grippers for exceptional comfort all day. Serious, elegant sun protection, whatever your sport.

Classic style
Ashmei Classic Cycle Jersey & Cycle Bib Shorts | £116 & £176

Set yourself up in style with the Ashmei Classic Cycle Jersey and Cycle Bib Shorts. Wind-resistant breathable fabric maintains your temperature with a merino-carbon blend. The super lightweight jersey offers UPF 50+ while being luxuriously soft against skin. It has three rear pockets plus one zipped and a deep silicon gripper hem to stay put. The thick female-specific foam chamois in the shorts provides brilliant padding. A compression fit finished with a laser-cut leg cuff – they will not ride up. The deep waist mesh helps cool your back, too. You can also wear the top running – double whammy.

Here’s the proof
Rab Charge Jacket | £150

When the spring showers hit, pull out your Rab Charge Jacket for instant waterproofing. Brilliant for runners, hikers and cyclists, the semi-elasticated hood with a stiffened peak allows you to keep focused on the road. Easily stuffed into its own sack, it’s so lightweight it will fit easily into a belt. The slim fit is perfect for the bike and its tough 40D nylon outer face gives great protection.

Waist not want not
HOKA ONE ONE x Nathan Wasitpak | £50

Make sure you’ve got your nutrition and hydration needs covered with the Hoka X Nathan Waistpak, which comes with a soft flask. With its large zipped front pocket, rear flask section, other gel stash areas, space for a jacket plus loops for poles, it’s a winner. It fits well, with custom adjustments to prevent bounce.

Road warrior
FWE Beacon Comp Road Shoe | £56

The female-specific FWE Beacon Comp Road Shoe offers fantastic value for money. These have a breathable microfibre upper, two velcro straps and a quick opening and closing ratchet. There’s ample padding around the heel, a padded tongue and a firm sole, making them both solid and comfy.

Feel the Rippl effect
Rippl bottle | £16

Stay hydrated with a Rippl bottle which keeps drinks ice cold for 24 hours and your coffee hot for 12 hours. Great for the environment, it’s BPA free – and 15% of profits are donated to charity.
