Introducing Kona’s Remote Ctrl eMTB!
This is the Remote Control we’ve all been waiting for: see how a battery and a few buttons can change your view of the world with the wind rushing through your hair.
It combines 30 years of Kona’s magic along with the best technology available, in one spanking new model designed expressly for having as much fun as can be. There really is nothing stopping you now, except for a full set of SRAM’s.
Those of us who have been riding eMTB’s for a while recognise the line Graham Agassiz is taking too: the fast one. The photo is from perhaps the most refreshing video to show what an electric bike is capable of too… it’s all about how much fun he’s having. Full-on riding, without compromise.
Introducing Yuba’s Supermarché Bosch
Taking the already extraordinary Supermarché to new heights was always going to be a tall order for Yuba, yet the inclusion of the top of the line Bosch Performance Line CX motor does just that. This is every bit as good as we hoped it could be.
It retains the format from the Classic model, whilst reworking the undercarriage to strengthen it to support the increased capabilities of the electric drivetrain. With room for four from the get-go, it is great for both families and shifting gear around town.
What we particularly like is that it can be adapted to suit a variety of different needs as time goes on. This is down to the frame itself being designed to accommodate everything from kids to kegs, which means you can pop an adult with a picnic up front and then scoot about too.
The photo shows the Bamboo Box (base and surround). There is also an ‘Open Loader’ which is a durable nylon surround with lightweight aluminium rails. It even looks fast!
Get Electrified: eBike Conversion Kit
Thinking about going electric and already have a great bike? One option is to upgrade the one you have. The advantages include the obvious: you already have a bike!
With 100Nm of torque and a 630Wh battery, the ETM’s specifications leave most of the electric bikes in production in 2019 a long way behind. More information is available here.
Kona 2019 Models are here!
The new range of Kona Bikes for 2019 are available from today! There is plenty to choose from, with a some surprises in the pipeline too… we will update these pages as each new model is available, with all pricing listed here.
The 2019 Kona Rove comes with high praise! From flat out on the road, to gravel tracks and compliance with the Cycle to Work Scheme, it is right up there amongst our favourites!
Babboe: Family Cargo Bikes with a twist
With over a decade supporting families from the Netherlands and beyond, Babboe’s new Carve series combine a tilting chassis with augmented cycling, to deliver a wholly capable package to suit all comers. They’re as easy as riding a bike, even with two kids, a dog and groceries on the way to/from work. Wonderful!
With our new ‘Split/Pay’ option, you can choose a bicycle and accessories beyond the usual upper limit for the Cycle to Work Scheme and then assign the difference to a Card or PayPal.
To access Split/Pay, simply tick the box in our Shopping Cart and then pick your Employer’s existing Provider and your choice of Card or PayPal. The first £1,000 is reserved for your Employer’s Provider and the rest as you wish.
It really is as easy as that!
The Department for Transport has made £2 million funding available for the acquisition of ecargo bikes, to support green last mile deliveries. This funding is available to limited companies, sole traders, partnerships, charities and not-for-profit organisations.
To apply for the eCargo Bike Grant Fund:
1, Choose from the approved eCargo bikes on this page and we will send you our official quote via email.
2, Register your application on EST’s website here, along with our quote.
Ducati TT Evo S
The TT Evo S marks a turning point in the evolution of the once simple bicycle: this is an augmented bike with it’s own identity. Designed primarily for off-road use, it can conquer anything you throw at it and keep you pushing harder and faster than ever before.
Whilst the best tech available is all included in the most slick package, it is all-but invisible too: everything is tucked neatly into the frame.
Best eMTB ever? We think so.
Yuba: Cargo Bikes With Gusto!
Cargo bikes require a magical blend of ability and fluidity, which can transform a utility vehicle into a lifestyle. Yuba’s 200kg approved weight limit takes on all comers, with or without the top of the line Bosch CX motor you can choose to go with it.
Four key models share the same values, with each one tailored to suit a slightly different riding style, with variations fine-tuned for all environments. At least three out of four will probably cater for everything you can think of. Have a look, they come highly recommended.
Kids, kegs and cargo on the front and/or the rear, up high, down low, long, short, there’s something for every rider between 145-200cm tall (4’7″-6’5″), including your family?
With our best electric vehicles fully charged and raring to go, it is really exciting to see that our fellow Londoners are as keen as we are to embrace our digital bikes as much as we do.
Our focus is on families who wish to commute by bicycle. Smart clothes and even smarter technology without a slither of lycra in sight.
Just like any regular commute and school run, without the faff of trying to park a ton of tin and rubber along the way.

“NOTHING BEATS A LONDONER”
Enjoyed this so much, we just had to post it!
Hey Nike, chapaeu!
The new Taga 2.0 offers larger wheels and a fixed frame with an optional electric motor (above). The Original Taga 1.0 converts from a bike into into a Stroller and back again (below).
Which would you choose?
Whilst we occasionally pop the Taga 1.0 on public transport, the Taga 2.0 can also come with an electric motor to whoooosh right past it (a Water Cannon is available too!).
Ducati Bicycles: which one is your n+1?
Ducati has long been synonymous with fun! Yes, the magic ingredient in all bikes is the sheer pleasure of riding one. With a motor, without a motor, it’s often the the very freedom of the open road/trail/both which we seek.
With a variety of motor and battery combinations, the throttle is your feet: the more effort you put in, the more you get out of it. It’s like riding a bike, because it is a bike and you are riding it (with improved acceleration and scope as standard).
Hövding’s Airbag Helmet
Having introduced the world’s first airbag helmet, Hövding has become a worldwide sensation! When Viral Thread’s clip went global, it gained over 150 million views and over 2 million shares in a matter of hours
Hövding has continued with numerous developments since their inception as a research project back in 2005. There are new washable covers and various internal and external improvements. What’s still extremely impressive is that you barely know you’re wearing it
Hövding is “8 times safer than helmets” Stanford University
Stanford University also found it offers “the best head and neck protection design”, far beyond the capabilities of conventional cycle helmets.
If you long to have the wind in your hair as you ride, it’s well worth having the extra protection Hövding offers. Would you wear one?
Even when it’s sub-zero out there, few people enjoy helmets. They’re often sweaty and uncomfortable, they ruin you hair…
…we’ve heard plenty of reasons why people won’t wear helmets. Yet Hövding’s airbag offends no-one. Funny that
Helmet hair be gone!
Chock-full of tech, this certainly impresses. It definitely starts conversations! You’ll be surprised how interested everyone becomes when they see you wear it (or your helmet-averse partner or offspring)
Stanford University proved that Hövding is “8 times safer than helmets”. Plus, they found it offers “the best head and neck protection design”. Smart
Hövding, easily the world’s coolest helmet

CatEye lights: now up to 6000 lumens!
Presents For Cyclists & FREE Delivery!
Few things divide opinion faster than bicycle safety gear. For many the rear light is the least important of bike lights, in part because it’s the one thing which doesn’t seem to contribute directly to your ride
Yet our lights are normally the first thing other road users will see. So what stops people investing in a decent set?
CatEye Volt 800: twice as bright as a 50W halogen spotlight
If the last time you bought a rear light was 2001, they’ve come a long way since then: with USB rechargeable Li-ion batteries and 180′ visibility, several are as bright as the lights on scooters
They make great gifts too! Especially for people who’d never buy them for themselves
Give the gift of light!
Part high-vis, part grocery bag, all good! One thing we’ve noticed is that people are giving them to friends and family members who wouldn’t wear high-vis in a million years. Sound familiar?
Hardly anyone likes to dress like a Christmas tree (even at Christmas)
Know someone who fits that description and in a jam over what to give them this festive season?
Go for it!
Headphones in cycling are a hot topic too, even though we can hear as much with them in as a person in a highly insulated modern vehicle
Damson’s answer? Bone-conducting headphones. Sounds vibrate through to your ears like magic, so you can still hear what’s around you
They’re like a soundtrack inside your mind
If you know someone who likes to commute with ear buds in all the time, this could be for them. Especially if they like to chat on their phone as they ride
We give these a “Thumbs-up!”
Abus Bordo Granit X Plus: the last lock you’ll ever need to buy?
Locks are another of the things which most of us ignore… right up until someone nicks our pride and joy. If it’s happened to you, you’re probably still seething about it years later.
If someone in your family is about to receive a new bicycle for Christmas, they may not have thought about how the lucky recipient will go about securing it.
The lighter the bike, the heavier the lock. Unofficially: 12kg combined
We recommend devoting at least 10% to cycle security. Hard to translate that in to a Christmas present, so maybe a caring sibling could gift it instead?
It’s tough to get excited about a good lock: hopefully, you’ll never need to know how good it is
