Greetings, BikeRadarians! We have some very interesting items to show off in this week's new gear round-up. We have a dropper lever that puts the competition to shame, a magnetic face shield for cold weather riding / ninja cosplay, and socks made from possums. Read on to find out more.

“Performance flannel” isn’t an oxymoron. The Shaka Flannel has a low-key look, but it has a few techy features that make it trail worthy.

It’s constructed from a quick-drying brushed polyester fabric. Mesh panels concealed under the armpits improve venting and a low-profile pocket sewn into the back of the shirt gives you a secure place to stow your smartphone while riding.

The Shaka is available in the Rincon Blue shown here as well as a more subdued Zuma Grey.

£75 / $90 / AU$125
