The Aero Race 5.1 jersey and Inferno bib shorts from Castelli offer light weight, high breathability, and form & fabrics designed to save real watts of energy... they're also damn well suited to a spin class. Here's why...
The Proviz Reflect 360 jacket uses a fabric that's as close as I’ve ever been to thinking something might be too visible at night… Oh, and the rest of the details that allow this swatch of material to be considered a jacket are not bad either… And we get their Nightrider Pack cover as well.
Castelli's new Free Aero Race Bibshort has been redesigned from the bottom up, inside out, and top down, and back to front - it's a brand new bibshort named after their best selling bibshort ever. Early Spring here at PEZ HQ means I've logged a few good rides in 'em and they've impressed enough to warrant a stand alone review.
If you haven't noticed, Bellwether Clothing is back, and their newest top-line cycling jersey & bibshorts are worth noticing. A resurgence in their R&D raised our eyebrows a couple years back and after some solid miles in their Optime kit, we remain impressed.
Maybe the best part of Fall is testing kit for cold weather. The latest winter cycling kit from Castelli has been here for a few weeks, and helped me on more than a few cold rides. Here's a close look at their Diluvio Deluxe glove, Free jacket, Sorpasso Wind bibtights, Flanders LS base layer, and Diluvio Allroad Shoecover.
The 2013 Interbike cycling trade show is long over but this is Pez... And true bike geeks very simply can just keep geeking out on gear for a virtual eternity... here's Ritchey’s Logical new bits, De Marchi’s old and new school and Felt’s new Aero solution.
A few decades ago, a thought started in a humble bike shop, went into a wind tunnel as a carbon race frame and came out as arguably the finest cycling clothing available. “Ace” (Assos) have come a looong way without ever leaving a house in Switzerland… Here's a close look at their T FI.13 S5 bibshorts, SS.Mangussta S7 jersey, S7 arm & leg Warmers, and Climaschutz vest.
A look through Castelli’s current winter catalogue reveals a huge collection of cold weather technical riding gear. I’ve had a bunch if it on test, so here’s a closer look at the Gabba WS Longsleeve & Trasparente Due Wind Jerseys, an update on the Polare bib tight, short sleeve Iride Base T Short sleeve, Diluvio16 shoe covers, and the Estremo long finger gloves.
