Verge Sport – Cyclocross Warm Up Pants

Designed to use for course inspection and pre-rides our men’s Warm Up Pants are made from a combination of water repellent Super Roubaix® material and wind / water proof three layer membrane fabrics.

The panels have been purposefully designed to provide a good range of motion while providing more than adequate warmth and protection.

The legs have full zippers so the garment can be quickly taken off on the start line and are designed to fit tight so you have no worries about getting the material hung up on your chain ring.

Retail Price – $150
**** All retail items are 50% off after using code WINTERSALE at checkout **** At store.vergesport.com.

Zevlin Bar Tape and Skincare Products

Zevlin, a small company owned and operated by two brothers in Dallas, TX, manufactures high quality handlebar tapes and skincare products. Their Big40 bar tape comes in 2.0mm and 2.5mm thicknesses, with the extra 40mm width providing additional comfort with the increased overlap. The Big40 is available in multiple solid colors, or printed versions (and is also available for custom printing). Zevlin’s Z-Attack tape is a more traditional 30mm width, with 2.5mm thickness, and an extra tacky textured surface. Z-Attack comes in multiple solid colors, and a striking two color version for as much style as comfort.

Zevlin’s BYOT spray is like a shower in a bottle and more environmentally friendly than disposable wipes. Containing essential oils, it not only gets you clean with the use of their reusable towel or your own, but keeps you smelling as good as you look. The LEG shave cream is made of natural ingredients and supplies superior lubrication for a close shave and to prevent skin irritation.

Use the discount code “smellsanta” to save 15% on all orders until January 2, 2017!

Big40 2.0 tape (solid colors only)- $16.50, Big40 2.5 tape (solids and prints)- $24.95, LEG shave cream (5.28oz)- $9.95, BYOT with sprayer- $13.95.
