Renewing parts for Giants Revel 0

I'm the proud owner of a Giant Revel 0. I have got it for around 1.5 year. I has gone through summer and winter, rough conditions. In the time i haven't renewed any parts or did much for the bike (shame on me!).

But by now i can fell its not running as smooth as it did when i bought it. Gear shifting, chain, brakes (can push it all to the stear), and tyres seems to be getting wear.

As i'm rather rookie, i don't have the sligthest clue about what to buy if i should renew parts. I have been reading several articles, but can't seems to find specific brands that are 'good', and what to look for when buying etc. brakes, cassettes or something.

So i thought maybe you guys could help me? What would be a start when the bike is 1.5 year? I'm defiantly thinking about a new chain, and need some tyres that can resist snow and ice (winter conditions in Denmark atm.) - should i renew cables?
If any Giant Revel 0 owners out there, i would also like to hear what your thoughts are!

Hoping to get some help!

    If your tyres are worn, yes buy some new ones, same with brakes, get some new pads. I doubt the cables need changing, buy a new chain,index the gears and you are good to go for another 12 months or so ?
