• China Light Boy

    New bike lights now in, from Sanguan

    More brilliant new lights now in stock !!

    We have formed a good working relationship with one of the better LED cycle light manufacturers in China, and our latest shipment includes two new front lamps, and now a great value rear LED.

    SG-N2200Firstly, an old favourite, the SG-N2200. This twin bodied lamp uses two of the latest L2 U2 LED's and puts out an amazing 2200 lumens, with four power settings (10%, 40%, 70% and 100%). It features a separate handlebar switch for easy operation while cycling and the back of the lamp has 3 power indicators to show current battery power level (100%, 50%, 10%), so you will not suddenly be pitched into total darkness!. The lamp is the first to have a liquid coolant within the lamp body and is powered by a 6 cell 6600mAh 8.4V lithium ion battery enclosed in a waterproof shell. Included in the presentation box are handlebar mounts (two sizes), a helmet mount, battery pouch with straps, a UK charger and full instructions. We have been using these lights for over a year now without a single problem. This light is only available through our Kielder or Bellingham stores and the price is still only £99. 

    A new model in the range is the SG-K20 which uses two Cree XM-L2 U2 LED's with a 2000 lumen output. It comes with a quick release bracket for handlebar mounting which adjusts to fit most bars. It has a metal on/off switch on the lamp body which provides a more positive feel than plastic or rubber, and this has a luminous O ring around it to act as a power indicator (clever stuff!). The outer case is designed with a "peak" at the front to help direct the light. Comes complete with UK charger, helmet band, waterproof battery case with velcro straps, all in a neat EVA case. Normally supplied with a 4 cell battery (£84.99 on Ebay!) we have specced these with a 6 cell battery to increase run time to well over 3hrs on full power and still only £85!! Available through our online shop or instore. 

    SG-ThumbThen we have the SG-Thumb 2, which is USB chargeable. As the name suggests this is a tiny lamp weighing only 55grms!! Perfect for handlebar or helmet mounting this little baby still puts out 1000 lumens. This is undoubtedly the most powerful light for it's size I have ever seen! With four power modes (as above) and a 2 cell battery pack in a neoprene waterproof cover this lamp beats the traditional competition hands down. Included in a nice gift box are a battery pouch with straps, USB plug and cable, two different size O rings for handlebar mounting, a helmet mount and full instructions. Again available online or instore.

    Price for this little beauty is £55. 

    And now the SG-Ruby, a great value rear LED lamp to go with your front one. A waterproof aluminium body with a silicone strap to fix to any seatpost size from 20-40mm. Uses two CR 2032 batteries which will run for 50hrs constant or 150 hrs on flashing. We have these with a Black or Silver body. Also available with a white LED if you need something extra up front for commuting. From our online shop or instore at the incredible price of £8.99!!

  • Haglöfs is here!!

    The Bike Place takes on this top end Swedish clothing brand.

    haglofs-logo

    Using the latest technical fabrics coupled with really well thought out design ideas results in some amazing pieces of clothing. Really lightweight and built to last, no wonder the Haglofs mantra is  "buy expensive clothing and save money" - think about it.

    We have some organic cotton Apex Tees (made in Portugal) which have a fit and feel way beyond the average sweat shop item - £30 well spent I say.

    Or for those wetter rides how about a LIM Proof Jacket with hood. Made from recycled materials, this lightweight packable jacket is constructed from a waterproof/breathable 2.5 layer PROOF fabric with a Hydrostatic head of > 10,000mm.

    The Shield Jacket is a lightweight windshell made from 100% recycled polyester. In stock in Ladies or Gents and check out those vibrant colours!

    The last item I will pick out from the range is the Ardent Shorts. These are MTB specific and you really need to try a pair on to appreciate the fit and feel. I did this and was amazed how much better they felt than the well known Scottish brand of shorts I usually wear. We now have a Demo pair, so if you come along with your own liner short you can try these and you will see why they are worth £125!! We have Medium, Large and XL in stock. Call 1st to check if the Demo pair is available at the Kielder Cycle Centre.

    End of season sale!! - To make way for new stock arriving next year, we are offering 25% OFF our current Haglofs stock!!

    An ideal excuse for a Christmas present to self perhaps?
