Their jackets used to come with a two way front zip which was great for venting and the cuffs used to be adjustable. None of these features appear even on the more expensive jackets because the manufacturers are so obsessed with reducing costs.

Altura used to make really good value, good quality cycling gear but nowadays, even the more expensive stuff, tends to be just glorified bin liners.

I tend to buy DHB stuff these days. Not the best quality but at least it's reasonable value and reasonably hard wearing.

I always wear one when operating the Nespresso machine.
One should never skimp on appropriate safety-gear.

On me phone so can't link, but check out planet X for some pretty decent altura deals if you're looking for them.

Good quality and we'll ventilation but they come up very small in the sizes. I'm normally a L in a jacket but with Altura I have to wear a XXXL. I'm a 44 chest and 5ft11" good deal if you can find one that fits.

The Nic has the tread pattern for grip and pretends to have it, but in reality it slips around like a greased pig. Hans Dampf or Magic Mary are much better Schwalbe offerings.

I can’t argue with the hans dampf and magic Mary which has always been a downhill favourite, the nobby nic ain’t bad for winter rides it’s not as grippy as the hd and mm but for a basic off-road bike I’ve been happy enough, although I’ve started to find maxis tyres better for the bigger suspension enduro bike

Have these on my Scott and not great in the wet. Will be changing soon probably for high rollers.

But a good price

Some good prices there. Couldn't find any bargains I could not resit. So probably better to save your money until winter sales kick in properly.
At least that's how I trick myself into not buying more cycling stuff.

Pretty much same prices as Wiggle.


yeah on somethings similiar prices but certain items are really cheap

XT m8000 brakes £135 versus £160 wiggle
XT m8000 double crank £88 (now sold out) versus £129 wiggle
XT single with 32T CR £99 versus £96 but no Chainring worth £25 Wiggle

Shimano Ultegra FC-R8000 Chainset £191 versus £249 wiggle

as always shop around, never buy a deal until you google usual sources.

I'd actually got the SLX M7000 crankarm yesterday on chain reaction for £60 less £10 clearance discount as got some sealskinz socks for £22, but got the XT crank as its a good deal once i sell on the 32T chainring

Most big brand name bikes source frames in this price range from Taiwan …Most big brand name bikes source frames in this price range from Taiwan and China. Not a bad thing and this frame is triple butted its a decent spec frame.


True but the copy above says;

Eddy Merckx Cycles has a rich history as an aluminum frame builder and is therefore launching this premium aluminum racing bike that can compete on results with the best alloy racing machines in the world.

That definitely implies made by Eddy Merckx not we sourced good quality frames from taiwan for our bike and components in China and assembled them in Belgium. I suppose the clue is in the rich history reference. My point is there is a lot of deception in the way bikes are described to make consumers believe a far east sourced bike has strong European connections but really its pretty much a badge slap. Sometimes you see reference to so called European designed frame and yet the exact same geometry is used by many other bikes or the actual manufacturer of the frame for its taiwanese or chinese branded bikes. I'm not saying that is the case here but there is a huge level of dishonesty in the way many bikes are marketed.

Pretty sure both frame and forks are made in Asia which are both described as Eddy Merckx frame and forks. If its important to you to have a bike named after a famous sportsman then ok but otherwise the bike should be assessed completely on reviews and the components you get for the money. Pricing only looks ok to me on skim reading the spec.
