Start Dirt Crunching with these Mountain Bikes under $1500

Mountain biking is different from road biking in the sense of the word - the rugged trails.

We have tested 3 entry-level mountain bikes that you can buy in Singapore bike shops around the $1500 range. The ingredients that went into our selection include quality of components and frame versus the dollar value, their performance and their ability to tackle the very terrain these bikes were built for: the trails.

Product Review: Tioga Spyder Outland

Perhaps the most striking feature about the Tioga Spyder Outland saddle is its seemingly odd design; it is certainly more unconventional than the usual saddle, but positively not less comfortable. For one, no sensible saddle maker strives for discomfort, and, to have something released into the market suggests a breakthrough in design. Could that be the case for this particular saddle? Understanding Tioga’s philosophy behind its design helps shed light on its rationale. Key to it is its belief that padding actually has a limited and inefficient impact on shock absorption. This is down to the understanding that most paddings become compressed when a load is applied. With that in mind, Tioga’s solution to this is to design a dual-material shell with a webbed structure, which has been proven to be more comfortable and forgiving on bumps. Upon testing, it felt similar to having a mini suspension right underneath.

Flexiseq Sports Gel Comes to Your Rescue For Joint Injuries

It is an unsaid fact that health deteriorates with age. Even the best athletes fall prey to muscle tear and joint wear, and these unwanted ailments slow their movements where agility is necessary to clinch the good fight. If you have old injuries, they can also lead to joint problems such as arthritis – this takes a good while to recover.

Cyclists especially are prone to muscle and joint damage as they cover long distances on their bikes. Intensive cycling marathons put excessive strain on their joints which can yield problems later on, such as infrequent pain to arthritic conditions in the worst cases.

Product Review: 7iDP M1 Helmet

In almost everything we do these days, safety is of paramount importance, whether you are waiting to board the train or bus to work or school, or even you are a pedestrian walking along the pavement, having a good sense of safety plays an important part in keeping us from harm's way so that we can all get back home to our loved ones safely at the end of the day. As the hub of our nervous system, the head is probably the most critical part of our body to protect, as head injuries may adversely impact the rest of our bodies as well. Having adequate head protection whilst you’re cycling may seem like a fashion faux pas to some, but victims of these injuries would certainly beg to disagree. To alleviate this, helmet manufacturers are starting to place great importance into the design and aesthetics of helmets to make them look seriously cool with a whole variety of colours and paintjob designs to suit almost every rider's taste and fancy.
