Xmas Gifts: Week 2

Week 2 of Xmas Gift ideas from the valued advertisers on VeloUK, clothing, bike bits and more …


Prendas Santini_molteni_bibshortsMolteni Retro Bib Shorts (MAX2 Insert) (Exclusive to Prendas): Occasionally, Prendas commission retro bib shorts like the La Vie Claire and ADR ones but now Molteni has it’s chance!

Given the Molteni (Eddy Merckx rode for them) kit is pretty dear to many of our fans hearts, Prendas decided to do something a little different by using embroidery to get the team name represented on the shorts.

In order to perform the embroidery, they have used the superior PowerLycra which has been an extremely popular choice with customers using the Santini SLICE bib shorts over the years.

Other features of the bib shorts include mesh braces, the new and improved MAX2 seat pad, a reflective SMS logo at the rear and hidden silicon leg grippers to finish the retro look.

Made in Italy: Price: £69.95

Prendas ‘Air Tunnel’ Winter Overshoes: Air-Tunnel is a multi-layer material that has been specifically designed to keep out the wind, cold and rain whilst remaining lightweight, comfortable and breathable.


Air-Tunnel offers a good level of protection from the wind – comparable to WindTex and GORE’s Windstopper – whilst offering better protection from the wet too. These are not sold as waterproof overshoes, however they are a big improvement and certainly keep the rain at bay whilst acting like Neoprene when wet but without the bulk! Price: £29.95
