Reviews: Stuff You Need in Your Life – Issue 22
More stuff: Trainers, vitamins, floating lanyards… it’s our monthly roundup of the best gear on offer this month.
Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential
A stylish, authentic-looking shoe featuring no-sew overlays and breathable mesh uppers for a supportive, lightweight feel. The visible Air-Sole heel offers durable impact protection, making for a super comfortable trainer.
These military-grade high-density compounds clamp on to the bar firmly, allowing you to increase the diameter with which you are using it. This causes greater muscle activation throughout the arms, leading to rapid muscle growth.
Under Armour Resistor Half-Finger Training Gloves
Superior gloves made using ArmourMesh, palm padding and a UA Power Strap for incredible support and extra protection while you workout. A terry cloth thumb panel wipes away brow sweat, and palm perforations increase breathability.
Garmin Edge 1000 Cycle Computer
A touchscreen computer using GPS navigation and built-in cycle maps to make sure you don’t get lost along your ride. Designed to battle through bad weather and bumpy tracks, it can also track your pedal power, distance, speed and elevation.
360Fly Video Camera
A 360-degree panoramic HD video camera that comes complete with a 32GB memory, WiFi and Bluetooth capacity and a sleek, stylish design. The three-axis sensor and accelerometer allows for reliable motion sensing, and makes for incredibly clear footage.
If you’re looking to get your protein fix at breakfast, but want an alternative to eggs or a shake, then you might be interested in the latest offering from cereal brand Mornflake.
Mornflake GO! is a high protein porridge range, made with rolled oats, skimmed milk and GM Free plant soya protein, which offers an impressive 22g of protein per 100g serving. There’s also no added salt.
Unlike some of its rival protein sources, it doesn’t have a strong taste or aroma, which is a big plus point for us. And it’s designed for people who are on the go, and is available either a multi-pack of single-serve microwavable sachets or instant pots.
It comes in two flavours, original with no added sugar or chocolate, and can be found in Sainsbury’s this month.
Using neuromodulation, this watch produces soft pulses on the underside of the wrist that create a mild tingling sensation. This travels to the body’s central nervous system to relieve the symptoms of motion sickness. A must-have on your travels.
Again Faster Competition Speed Rope
A workout rope made with knurled aluminium handles, each with multiple ball bearings for that fast, smooth yet slightly heavier feel. Each set comes complete with both lightweight and medium weight cables, allowing you to customise each workout using your rope.
