Saikel is a new clothing brand with bold ambitions. Born in the Swiss mountains out of a desire for cycling kit that is unique and embraces bold colours. All the kit is made in Italy using the best fabrics and technologies available on the market. There are 2 desgins currently in production, first up is the Segment collection, inspired by mountain passes and steep gradients, this is for the cyclist who likes to stand out. Jagged lines and bold colours give this collection something very different. The second design is the chevron, a more subtle design but with a hint of colour. Again inspired by getting to the pointy end of a race or nearing the top of that climb it pays homage to cycling we all know and love.
Both ranges include men and woman’s jerseys and bib shorts, as well as arm and leg warmers to keep you toasty on those colder days. Sizes from Small to X-Large, 3 pockets of the jersey’s and a stretchy, supportive bib straps make the kit a joy to wear. The kit has been given extensive tesing by the crew at Cycle Exchange, daily commuting, up (and down) mountains, triathlon training, off road/on road. The kit has passed the test. Heads are always turned for a second look at the jerseys and questions are asked. Now being stocked and sold in store in Kingston, all sizes available.
So it’s that time of year again where we all start to look back and pick out our favourite moments, products, and memories. Despite 2020 not going to plan, shall we say, as far as new bike tech goes there have been some real highlights. Here’s our bikes of the year list for 2020!
