With Mark Cavendish riding for Dimension Data this season, sponsored by MET helmets, it was time for him to get a new special edition helmet. As a prolific sprinter, he unsurprisingly opts for an aero road lid, so the last summer’s new Manta is his newest weapon of choice.

Cav’s branded helmet sticks with same 3 piece in-molded shell as the original Manta, but gets his signature dark green metallic finish on the side panels, plus his thin green line detailing. Take a closer look, along with pricing and availability after the break…

Test ride an alloy Eddy Merckx and you could win a jersey signed by The Cannibal

eddy-merckx-prestige-alloy-road-bike-signed-jersey-giveaway

The Eddy Merckx camp is making a big deal of their alloy road bikes, putting their ride quality and performance on par with carbon fiber frames. As an incentive for you to test ride one and see for yourself, they’re giving away 10 autographed Demarchi cotton cycling jerseys signed by Eddy himself.

The offer is open to U.S. residents only. To enter to win one of the jerseys, just test ride any (or all) of their aluminum bikes before May 4, 2016, and submit a photo of you with the bike online. Their alloy models include the Strasbourg gravel bike, the men’s Blockhaus road bike and the women’s Montreal. So, why push premium alloy? Here’s what they have to say:

Just as Eddy himself never compromised, so we will not accept a sub-par product to hit a defined price point. By choosing for ultra-high quality alloy frames for our Prestige Alloy line instead of affordable carbon, we stick true to our philosophy of only offering top level workmanship. These bikes offer double-pass welds with tubing that has been formed in three stages (no hydroforming) to make a frame worthy of the very best groupsets the market has to offer.

Prize value is $199 each. Enter the contest here, full terms and conditions here.
