Dirt to Work with Kitsbow

The fellas at Kitsbow are known for being high-end textile connoisseurs, and to announce their foray in the casual commuter genre, they created a video documenting the best dirt you can find in San Francisco. Although it shows a bit more than you could reasonably cover on your way to work, (while still getting there […]

Style Check: DHaRCO Riding Kit in Dazzling Blue

My fangirl affair with DHaRCO riding kit continues, prompting me to post yet another Style Check after a recent purchase — the women’s gravity shorts and matching 3/4 trail jersey in blue. As I stated in my previous post, (click here) I’m drawn to DHaRCO’s bright feminine colors, tailored cuts and well thought out ensembles. So much so that I […]

Flannel for Fall: Performance Flannel for Riding

Flannel is so hot right now. The apparent rise of the “Lumbersexual” means flannels are more popular than ever, with heritage style officially declared “in”. This usually signals the peak of the trend, but on the bright side it also means we have quite a selection in flannel shirts suitable for riding bikes. Whether it’s casual rides or digging […]

Sombrio Black Metal Jersey and Pinner Shorts Review

When MTB apparel outfit Sombrio was having difficulties last year, we were bummed as we’ve been fans of their gear for some time. Although some of their graphics can be hit or miss for us, the brand has its roots in the dirt, the gear is well constructed and I’m a fan of the fit. Fortunately it […]

Style Check: Club Ride Deer Abby Jersey

Club Ride made their name with casual but functional pieces that buck tradition. You don’t have to resemble a stuffed sausage on the trail, and the world is better for it. For 2015 they’ve expanded their line with additional looks that have a cut and silhouette more along the lines of traditional riding garb, but […]

Contemporary trail bikes are more capable than ever, making higher speeds much more easy to attain. It also means choosing to have a bit more protection is a prudent decision.

Review: Club Ride Freedom Short

As women we have limited options for stylish mountain bike apparel, so I’m always on the lookout for more. When I came across Club Ride’s Freedom short online, I had to investigate further and reached out. Though we’ve been familiar with Club Ride for some time now, I was happy to see something in the women’s line that appealed […]

Your Helmet is Outdated: Bell / Giro Add MIPS Technology to Helmet Lineup

Bell and Giro have long been leaders in progressive helmet technology, and their headwear has saved my noggin more than once. With companies like POC, Scott and Smith touting new helmet technology featuring the MIPS Brain Protection System, it was just a matter of time before Bell/Giro responded with offerings of their own. With contemporary […]

The Specialized 2F0 Flat Women’s Shoe: WHY

Specialized recently released a new shoe intended for use with platform pedals, the 2F0 Flat. They’ve also released a women’s version, in an indigo/ hyper green color way. I’m really at a loss of words when it comes to the color choices of this shoe. Apparently indigo and hyper green is in right now and someone […]
