Ven­ture Cy­cles has re­cently taken on Ri­d­ley Bikes to com­ple­ment the al­ready strong road bike of­fer­ing of Trek. Ven­ture’s Jez Peter­son said Ri­d­ley fits well “with its cus­tomi­sa­tion pro­gram, as with all the other brands we sell we can cus­tom build a bike to your ex­act needs, all the way down to the colour”. Check out the Noah (above) from $4299, or the Fenix (be­low) from $3799. Eqipped with Shi­mano Ul­te­gra SS Di2 elec­tronic shift­ing, Ro­tor Flow chain­ring, Prol­ogo Zero Tri Pas T2.0 sad­dle, Pro­file De­sign cabon wheelset with Con­ti­nen­tal Grand Prix 4000S rub­ber, the UCI ap­proved Merida Warp TRI 7000 is your ul­ti­mate aero ma­chine with an RRP of $7999 from Bi­cy­cle Cen­tre Ma­roochy­dore, 77-79 Wises Road. The Garmin Fenix 5, Fenix 5S and Fenix 5X are ex­pected to ar­rive at Cy­cle Zone Mooloolaba late in April. Mea­sur­ing 47mm, the watch has a new in­dus­trial de­sign and is more com­pact than pre­vi­ous mod­els like the Fenix 3HR, but is still packed with mul­tisport fea­tures. All the new mod­els are avail­able in a va­ri­ety of colours and fin­ishes with more ac­ces­sory bands avail­able (sold sep­a­rately), which makes the new Quick­Fit bands a great ad­di­tion. Users can mix and match be­tween their choice of leather, metal or sil­i­cone watch­bands and switch be­tween them in sec­onds with no tools needed. Eas­ier than chang­ing clothes for dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions, Fenix 5 users just need to swap, click and go to change out their band.

The Fenix 5S is lighter, sleeker and smaller than pre­vi­ous mod­els – per­fect for small wrists with­out sac­ri­fic­ing mul­tisport func­tion­al­ity.

The Fenix 5X boasts pre­loaded wrist-based map­ping; and the com­pact Fenix 5, like other Fenix watches, is fea­ture-packed.

All the Fenix 5 mod­els are 24/7 wear­able with ex­tended bat­tery life, daily ac­tiv­ity track­ing, Garmin El­e­vate wrist heart rate tech­nol­ogy, and a host of con­nected fea­tures.

With the new Fenix 5 line-up, users now have a watch that com­pli­ments their style and ad­ven­tures.

RRP pric­ing is Fenix 5 in slate grey, gran­ite blue or amp yel­low $799; Fenix 5 slate grey, per­former bun­dle $999; Fenix 5 Sap­phire in black $949; Fenix 5 Sap­phire, black, per­former bun­dle $1149; Fenix 5 Sap­phire in slate grey with metal band $1099; Fenix 5s in white, turquoise or black $799; Fenix 5s Sap­phire in black or cham­pagne with leather band $949; Fenix 5s Sap­phire in cham­pagne with metal band $1099; Fenix 5x Sap­phire in slate grey $999.
