Biking with the best equipment
It’s Time for a trip! What’s enough to be ultimate prepared? We need your enthusiasm and will try to give an optimal advice for quality equipment with which to pull away.
We’ll not pay attention to the outerwear, but will start with the walking shoes - Pearl Izumi X-Project 1.0. The model X-Project blurs the line between shoes for biking and walking. The layer of carbon fibers retains the hardness of the midsole, so that it is suitable for cycling, but the shoe is sufficiently flexible and comfortable for walking.
Next step – where you will put all personal things? Our choice is Osprey Rev 18 backpack. The network in braces, back and pockets of this slim backpack hydration reduces its weight by about 500 grams and provides ventilation
Where you’ll find a shelter or comfortable sleep? Big Agnes Fly Creek 2 Platinum tent! The tent is shrinking to a size 13 × 48 cm, but harbors two adults that leaves no room for equipment in porch. And when the weather gets worse, you remain happily dry. Of course in combination with Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite! Although the size is half of the most lightweight duvets, this air mattress with a thickness of 6.4 cm is no less convenient than real inflatable bed.
And finally - the pearl in the crown - Jones Plus bike!
With three inch tires that provide traction and stability and its steel frame, Plus is probably the best bike for cycling. Upright posture and carbon H-bar handlebar ensure a comfortable driving and the 11-speed Shimano XTR cassette wreath offers a wide range of gears. His bike comes with many bags and pockets enough to hold gear for a week.
