Shimano SH-XC90 mountain bike shoe

The XC90s landed in BikeRadar’s Australian headquarters back in September 2014. They’ve since ploughed through marathon races, hiked up countless rock ledges to find better camera angles and taken in a long walk home after double flatting a test bike with only half the required spares on hand. Sitting as Shimano’s top-level off-road SPD race shoe, the XC90s boast a ... Read More »

Mahindra Mojo Review

In 2015, how should one approach a product, which was first showcased in 2010? Should we consider it as a new product, or a product which is five years old, but is being launched for today’s generation? That was one of the many questions which was going through our mind when we were on our way to Bengaluru, to test ... Read More »

Review: Driveclub Bikes

First things first: whoever was dumb enough to call this Driveclub Bikes instead of Rideclub really missed an opportunity here. This standalone(ish) expansion on top of the existing Driveclub is for one very specific set of gamers. That being, those people still playing… who also like motorcycle racing. Driveclub Bikes changes nothing about the experience of the original. Clubs are still ever present, as are events, ... Read More »

First Ride: Cervélo’s First-Ever Endurance Road Bike

About 50 miles into a 75-mile test ride on Cervélo’s new C5, I started falling apart. I had just returned to riding a little less than one week before, after a debilitating illness forced me off the bike for nine days.

First ride: Cannondale Slate

MALIBU, California — It’s exciting to ride what the pros ride, to throw a leg over a bike made to go as fast as possible. But realistically, that bike isn’t made for the everyday Joe who won’t toe the Tour start line anytime soon (or ever, actually). Cannondale believes that we will be much happier — and therefore more excited to get out ...

Scantily Clad Models Are Still the Driving Force Behind Car Shows in China

Chinese car show models appear to be faring well in the business despite the ban on models at auto shows in Shanghai earlier this year. The new regulations had stirred up quite a commotion in China when models dressed as beggars took to the streets to protest.
