Welcome to Tech of the Month, our regular roundup of the shiniest, coolest and newest products, bikes, gadgets and gizmos to arrive here at BikeRadar HQ. This month is a bumper edition featuring a whole range of gear from stems, to gravel clothing, and even the latest triathlon bike from Cadex. Let us know your budget products that you want to see featured in future editions. As always, leave your thoughts about anything featured in the comments. First up Senior Video Manager, Felix Smith, steps in for Warren to talk you through a whole swag bag worth of gear, starting with a 3D printed stem from Metron that costs a WHOPPING £500. Then he runs you through the Garmin Explore 2, a GPS computer perfect for touring before moving onto the new Zipp 858 wheels. Technical Writer, Oscar Huckle then gives you all the key details that you need to know about Assos first step into the gravel clothing market. He has their three piece (as in pieces of kit not a suit!) Millie range that features the GTC Jersey C2 jersey, GTC Kiespanzer C2 cargo bib short and GTC Zeppelin Cargo Shorts C2. Finally we get tech-heavy as Simon chats to Cadex to learn all about their radical and highly aerodynamic triathlon bike. It’s been ridden at Ironman 70.3 events and will be available to purchase at the end of the year.

Mate £110 for a cycling jersey, Aldi so much less and more Aero, save up to buy that lace work stem
Thank you Zipp I have just paid £500 for an old style one new in box 808 but ho I will lose 1 watt and short of 2mm-5mm but kept £1200 whow is me, but I hate those decals
Favourite GPS one that links to the phone with no hassle and that's NOT Garmin
£500 for a bit of old style Christmas decoration origami........................................I bet the aero vortex inside that thing would be unbelievable, as would be anyone paying £500
Explore 24h is nothing better, they let you carry and fit spare batteries a pocket full of cells already charged ,would save me having to carry 3 of the things when bike packing
the first company that breaks the system and brings that out will be a killer..............................hey Wahoo, Hammerhead
solar when cycling in Wales or Scotland or most areas is no answer
That stem??? My Procraft PRC ST2 stem costs 34€ (from Bike24) is made of 7050-T6 alu and looks way better, weighs only 99 g in 110 mm length. My 60 mm PRC ST2 is 79 g.
I don't know why you guys love those noisy cassettes... Noise = drag = wasted watts.
Any chance you can text the Garmin explore for what it's designed for? Like start in the middle of nowhere and use the device to you a cafe you only the name of? 15 year old phones can do this. Still waiting for a bike "gps" to be able to do it.
WTF....... a £3k+ set of wheels, £6.5k tri frame, £200 pair of shorts and a £500 stem. pull you heads out your elitist butts and review some real stuff the normal cyclists are buying. maybe if you take a trip to Decathlon, Halfords or you LBS and you'd see the real stuff real people are buying.
The cadet bike is growing on me. I’d never buy one, and I never plan to do an Ironman, but I’d want to rent that bike for one.
That stem is expensive AF, heavy AF and UGLY AF what's not to like?
ThoseZipp wheels are full of aerodynamic nonsense. The dimples don’t work as they are not travelling as fast as a golf ball and the whale bumps are nonsense in a medium with such a different density than water. Complete marketing pseudo-science.
I'll buy the wheels...in Zwift
Stem looks gimmicky and ironically a bit cheap tbh. The Zipp wheels look insane though and would love to try them out but will likely be beyond my budget forever!
PLS make a video about Ride Dev 5's Cranks!
Mr Garmin. Please add left/right power to the 130 plus.
Will it break?
