New kit from Cycliq, Giro, Lezyne, Morvelo and Topeak.

Cycliq Fly12 camera/light unit

Cycliq initially launched on Kickstarter, with their part camera, part rear light unit, the Fly 6. Now there's a front option too, which boasts a 400 lumen light and 1920x1080p HD video recorder as well as other functions like such as the 'Set and forget' function. This means the device records on a loop, deleting old material as appropriate, but if the camera goes beyond a 45 degree angle (which could be indicative of an incident) then it will save all data around that moment. RRP is £249.

Giro Aerohead and Aerohead Ultimate helmets

Giro have released a duo of new aero helmets destined for the time trial and track riders among us. The Aerohead (pictured) and Aerohead Ultimate both use MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) in their designs, but the Ultimate uses more conspicuous vents and a TeXtreme carbon shell, as well as having a smaller frontal area. Both are a claimed 455g, and are priced at £229.99 and £499.99 respectively.

Lezyne Digital Pressure Drive

Lezyne, another stalwart of the accessory market, have launched a multitude of new products recently, but one that's caught our eye in particular is this digital hand pump. The aluminium pump has a digitised pressure guage stuck to the main chamber, and is capable of reaching pressures up to 120psi, as well as of course being both Presta and Shrader compatible. Price TBC.

Morvelo Aroe jersey collaboration

Brighton-based Morvelo have teamed up with graffiti artist Aroe to produce a trio of jerseys showcasing the artist's designs and the brand's leftfield spirit. Pictured is the Street Dreams jersey, which sits alongside the Fader Red and Fader Blue in the set. The designs are created purely from the artist's spray can, without any digital intervention, stencils or projectors, and have been transformed into both MTB and road jerseys, which retail for £40 and £60 respectively. 

Topeak Ninja C chain breaker tool

Accessory enthusiasts Topeak have launched an entire range of tools, the Ninja C range, that are designed to stealthily stow away into parts of your bike to keep it looking clean and tidy. A perfect example are these bar end caps, which double up as a chain breaking tool replete with breaker, chain hook, 4mm Allen key and a compartment for a pin. Other items in the Ninja C range include a pump that fits in your seat tube and a tool kit that packs into a compartment beneath your bottle cage.
