The 2018 VeloNews Buyer’s Guide offers the best of road, gravel, and dirt riding.
Featuring carefully considered reviews of over 100 of the best bikes, helmets, apparel, accessories, optics, tools, shoes, and nutritionals, the 2018 VeloNews Buyer’s Guide offers cyclists trusted, in-depth guidance on all the gear they need for this season.
Dan Cavallari, Tech Editor for VeloNews and lead editor for the Buyer’s Guide, said, “For this year’s Buyer’s Guide, we went much deeper into each category to pull out the most worthy gear. Rather than reprint the spec sheet for 200 bikes, we offer our unique rating system that explores how the gear works in a variety of scenarios, for a variety of riders. We tested features against performance and price. Readers won’t find mediocre tech in our Buyer’s Guide. Every product is tested and approved.”
“The cover of this year’s VeloNews Buyer’s Guide features a gravel bike,” said Editor-in-Chief Fred Dreier, “which speaks to the shifting trends both in our sport and in retail stores. Our Buyer’s Guide is the first step of a year-long reintroduction of dirt racing to VeloNews.”
“There’s energy in gravel racing and mountain biking,” commented Spencer Powlison, VeloNews.com News Director. “The 2018 Buyer’s Guide shares this excitement and goes further to explain why gear was chosen, why it matters, and how it fits into recent developments in bike racing.”
The 2018 VeloNews Buyer’s Guide magazine issue mails to subscribers on March 6th. Single copies will be available at U.S. select print newsstands and online on ZINIO, Amazon Kindle, Readr app, and Google Play on March 20th.
