The best bikes, kit and equipment that we review on road.cc
We test a lot of stuff on road.cc, and we like to think our reviews are among the most authoritative and in-depth that you’ll find. New for Spring 2021 we’ll be curating the best products that we review into a new section on the site: road.cc recommends. It will be the go-to list of the best bikes, clothing and accessories for every type of rider.
Every month we’ll update the section with new products, and every month there will be a road.cc recommends show on our YouTube channel where we introduce the products of the month.
It’s not just a case of adding up all the numbers and that’s that. Every month is different, and there’s always an editorial discussion about the pros and cons of the contenders, and the mix of products that will be added. Of course a product has to have done well in the first place, but there’s a huge amount of experience among our reviewing team and it’s important to get everyone’s thoughts on what gets our ultimate seal of approval. Every recommended product has the full backing of our editorial team and the road.cc recommends section will feature prominently on the site.
Each year we’ll look back over the products that we’ve recommended, and we’ll use that pool to hand out some annual awards, we’ll also feature themed lists based around popular bike categories, and seasonal clothing and accessories too.
Hosted by Rebecca Charlton and Liam Cahill, the road.cc recommends Show will be broadcast via the site’s YouTube channel at the start of each month and will be promoted on road.cc itself and across its social media channels giving it a total reach of 2.6 million users.
The show will give viewers a trusted short cut to the best kit reviewed on road.cc each month with a list hand picked by road.cc’s tech team. Each month presenter Rebecca will get members of the team to talk us through why each product as made it on to the road.cc recommends list.
