Review: Giro Privateer XC Mountain Bike Shoes

High end mountain bike shoes can get pretty pricey these days, and you can easily spend upwards of $300-400 on a pair of the latest carbon wonder soles. Spending top dollar for a high-zoot carbon wonder sole is cool if you need the best to compliment your $10k carbon XC Race rig. However, if they […]

Style Check: Castelli Perla kit

I shared the Castelli Perla jersey in a previous post, but I’m now happily sporting the entire Perla ensemble. The SoftFlex RS fabric used for the jerseys and shorts is my favorite to date. It is so soft and comfortable, yet still a high tech fabric that breathes and wicks well. Not to mention it is very […]

2014 Giro New Road Expands with new Women’s Collection

Giro used to be primarily known for their line of helmets, but in the last few years it’s clear they’ve got their sights set much higher. They’ve already released a line of shoes and gloves that show they get it, and after our time with the stuff, we count ourselves as fans. Last year they […]

Review: Giro DJ and DND Gloves

There’s no reason to keep those tore up and beat down gloves around when a fresh pair can be had for just a few bucks. Save the old ones for crappy weather, or dig days, and move on. Like a good set of fresh grips, a good new pair of gloves make a big difference […]

Baggy short picks from Aerotech, Funkier and Zoic

We’re a bit obsessed with good looking high end technical apparel made from premium fabrics, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend a ton to have versatile and functional pieces in your cycling wardrobe. We found three shorts that are solid performers in the baggy trail riding short category that might not have been […]

Bike to Work Collection from Betabrand

Just because we live for weekend adventures doesn’t mean one can’t dress for it daily and look still look good. Any regular bike commuter knows to always be on your toes; so why wear clothing that hinders movement, or lets you perform at less than your best? Betabrand’s line of Bike to Work clothing is […]

Gear Review: Giro Chamber Shoes

The Giro Chamber is a skate-style SPD compatible shoe that works equally well in the bike park, trail, BMX track or around town. Intended as a downhill/ BMX specific racing shoe, the Chamber is a good looking shoe both on and off the bike. Our preferences lean solidly towards the black version, but the white version […]

Review: Dakine Syncline Short

When I’m headed out for a day of riding that involves pedaling, long travel bikes and burly terrain, the shorts I dig out—provided they’re not already in the hamper— are the Syncline shorts by Dakine. Although they’re a tad wider in the thighs than I’d prefer, the relaxed fit means my knee guards will fit […]

Review: Five Ten Maltese Falcon SPD Compatible Shoes

As a fan of 5.10 shoes, I’ve been looking at trying a pair of their SPD compatible shoes since they released the Hellcat. Sticky rubber soles plus SPD sounds like a winning combination. However, after checking out the Hellcat, I elected to hold off: the DH/BMX/ skate style clip-in shoe was simply too heavy. Not […]
