We've got a vast range of bikes, parts and accessories for sale on our site which as well as receiving user reviews, are regularly tested by cycling magazines and websites such as Dirt, BikeMagic, Pinkbike, Road.cc and BikeRadar.com.

We're going to bring you a selection of review highlights as and when they appear so you can see just how good the equipment is that we sell.

Without further ado here's this week's instalment…

Royal Crown Gloves 2012
