Discount brand Aldi is back with some super autumn cycling kit and it’s better than ever.
When Ride Velo tested out Aldi’s bike wear a couple of years ago we found it to be excellent value but a bit “Robocop” in styling. This time round Aldi designers have clearly been studying upmarket brands like Rapha and popular commuter marks like Endura and pared down their detailing to a much more wearable level. They’ve even included cyclists’ favourite merino wool in the mix.
As always, it’s not just clothing that’s being featured in the range this autumn, check out the Livall Mt1 Smart Helmet with cutting edge technology such as Bluetooth Smartphone connectivity and LED indicator lights on the back! For £79.99 it’s not exactly a bargain purchase, but it is about £50 cheaper than it’s nearest market rival.
With memory-foam saddles for £8.99, bike lights, sturdy bike locks and weatherproof gloves for under £15, Aldi’s range is sure to be very popular. We like the turbo trainer which has no less than six resistance levels and features a neat and foldable design for £49.99 – that’s really good value for money.
Ride Velo loves the Merino Cycling Collection, which will keep you cosy and warm this autumn as well as having great sweat-wicking properties. Check out the Sport Base Layer for £16.99 and the Wind Jersey for £19.99. You can spend much more on a designer base layer – but who’s going to notice? Chapeau Aldi – don’t miss out - get your kit on from 30th September!
