GEAR: There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing for cycling in the cold. Good kit makes all the difference... so for those willing to brave the cold... here's a closer look at Alé Bikewear PRS Logo DWR Long Sleeve Jersey, Graphics PRR Bibtights, and S1-Fall Baselayer.
For those of us in northern climes, it's time to break out the winter cycling kit. So for those hardy souls who can channel their inner Eddy Merckx, here's my look at how La Passione's PSN Long Sleeve Rain Jersey, PSN 3/4 Thermal Bib Shorts, Insulated Alpha gilet, Winter gloves, and Merino base layer, Merino socks and Winter overshoes stand up to cold weather.
The Primal Zebra Evo 2.0 kit is about as stylish as they come - but backed up with a lot more tech than just just flashy looks. Top line materials, properly cut and sewn for fit and function, an Italian made E6 Carbon seat pad in the bibs - plus a price that won't break your bank equals high value from the US brand.
REVIEW: The Castelli “Unlimited” collection of jersey, bibshorts, gloves and more, is designed for riders who love both adventure, and road cycling. Here's a close look at the Castelli collection's features and performance.
You know what they say about the best laid plans, right? Well, the original plan was to review La Passione kit in late winter/early spring when the weather was colder. But COVID changed all that and the world as we know it was essentially put on hold.
In their Italian production HQ, ALÉ Cycling go green using multiple fabric weaves and blends, from over 90% recycled materials to create their PRR Green Road Kit.
We can't all emulate Fabian 'Spartacus' Cancellara, but we can dream and feel and look as stylish as the big Classic and time trial winner in the new C5 collection by GORE. Our PEZman in DC, Chuck Peña, managed to get some good rides in to check the Spartacus range.
In these dark times we need something to look forward to. A warm summer and some great rides wearing new kit will be a dream come true. Chuck Peña previews summer and new top kit from Alé Bikewear - the PR-S Bullet jersey and R-EV1 Agonista Plus bib shorts.
Clothing Review: PEZ readers be forewarned... If your cycling attire tastes lean conservatively or you prefer murdered out black, this is not the kit for you. But if you’re not afraid of a little color and standing out in the crowd, then please continue reading as PEZ looks at the REGGIE kit.
