First up sorry about the worst post title ever! Anyway Matt from Netti stopped by the Spoke office yesterday to drop off a few goodies for us to sample. For 2010 the winter range of the Australian based label is looking pretty sweet. There's a good selection of MTB stuff and a huge selection of road wear, you can check it all out here on their website. If you are in Auckland Bike75 have the FULL range of Netti products in store and lots of space to try them all on so head down there and check it out, otherwise you should just hassle your local dealer. We have a few items to test, for starters the super comfortable (and warm, these puppies are lightly lined) 3/4 Super Capris Lycra shorts, which are all class and also a pair of Equaliser shorts with a non removable liner. And we also have a couple of pairs of Netti's new windproof winter riding glove the Titan as well as the standard full fingered Training glove.
We take the new Niner RLT 9 carbon gravel bike for a spin around beautiful Mackenzie Country, then home for a month to see how she goes..
