The Cyclechic Awards 2013

No. 1 The Cranberry Bern Lenox, £49.99
We' like to take a little moment to look back on the year and congratulate the products and brands that have triumphed with all you discerning cyclists. Here we have our top 5 sellers of 2013:

In first place we have the brilliant Bern Lenox helmet and are pleased as punch that it's our exclusive cranberry shade that has been the biggest seller this year. This is a helmet close to my heart as Cyclechic was started, all those years ago, when a tracked down a sample of a Cranberry Bern Muse and knew it would be the first product I would sell. Five years on and the Lenox is a marked improvement on the Muse as it has added vents but still has the flattering shape with peak and remains the most comfortable helmet I have ever worn. Big shouts to Denis and the gang at Bern!

No. 2 The Linus Sac £49.99 
The fact that we were not able to get stock of these babies for more than half the year and they still rock in at No. 2, is pretty impressive. It has to be one of the most stylish and versatile panniers ever created. Your particular fave is the navy with yellow base and we have to say we agree - there's something about those two colours together that just works. Well done Linus and well done to you all for having such impeccable taste. 

No. 3 The Bobbin Gold helmet £36.99

In at number 3 is the cool-as-can-be Bobbin Gold helmet. This helmet has stolen the show this year and has been featured all over the place; in The Times Style, Evening Standard and Living etc to name just a few. It's a helmet that likes the lime-light and we love the fact that so many of you cycling starlets are whizzing around town in one! Big shouts to our good friends at Bobbin Bicycles for coming up with this gem of a helmet. 

No.4 Georgia in Dublin Leggits £44.99

The Mother and daughter team from Ireland really know there stuff when it comes to rain and bicycles - the Leggits are quite simply a life-saver for cycling on those rainy days. Well done ladies!

No. 5 Sawako Furuno Leopard Helmet
An lastly but by no means leastly, the stunning Leopard print helmet rocks in at number 5. Sawako Furuno has achieved something that many might think impossible... the talented entrepreneur has created a sexy cycling helmet and for that we take our hats (and helmets) off and applaud.
