New gear from BBinfinite, Cervelo, Endura, Ritchey and SRAM.

BBinfinite jockey wheels

BBinfinite has entered the aftermarket jockey wheel game with these elite offerings, which are priced at $120 in the US and are available online. As the name suggests, the Ceramitech bearings are of hybrid ceramic construction, which we can assume aids rolling resistance, and BBinfinite claims the Delrin-made polymer body reduces wear on components too. The jockey wheels are brand-specific (either Shimano, SRAM or Campagnolo), and come in a variety of colours.

British Cycling & Cervelo track bike

The collaboration between British Cycling and its new bike partner Cervelo has now seen its first bike unveiled. The 'T5GB' will be the bikes that Team GB's track endurance riders will likely ride in Rio, and there's a lot of differences from Cervelo's former track showpiece, the T4, since the collaborative work with the research and innovation department at the English Institute of Sport. It's pretty, and we're sure it's fast, so let the games commence.

Endura Snapper II sunglasses

The Snapper IIs are crossover glasses – that is they should look as swish off the bike, as they look pro on the bike. The varied tint lenses are fully UV certified and there’s rubber on the temples, to keep your eyes and face protected from everything that life throws at you. Available in black or white for £39.99.

Ritchey Heritage frames

When it comes to cycling heritage, Tom Ritchey has it in spades. His list of innovations is long, which is way so many people have raced his bikes and it’s those classic racing colours the Heritage paint echoes. The paint is applied by Rick Stefani of D&D cycles and is available on any steel frame for a $500 upcharge.

SRAM HydroHC

We’ve known its coming for a long time, thanks to various pro riders playing fast and loose with their Instagram accounts, but SRAM has finally announced a hydraulic disc brake option of its Etap groupset. In a first for Sram’s road groupsets, the biting point of the hydraulic brakes will be adjustable. Available in Post Mount and FlatMount, SRAM will release full details (along with RRPs) at Eurobike.
