Rapha Updates their Classic Jersey
Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 8.27.36 AM

Many people say classics never go out of style and while that may be true, sometimes they need an update. Rapha took their most iconic jersey and gave it a few reconfigurations related to on-the-bike fit. I gotta say, the Classic jersey has always been my favorite people of Rapha apparel and it is without a doubt the piece their built their whole look upon.

See more at Rapha.

It’s been a while since Kyle, Sean and I have ridden from the early morning til sundown. Particularly because of the shorter winter days. When we saw the temperature was going to break 90º today, we planned a ride out to Dirt Mulholland with our friend Josh who was visiting from Austin.

Unfortunately for photos, the bright and hot mid-day sun results in less-than-ideal lighting but fortunately for photos, that just means you gotta relish the radness. Nothing crazy happened in terms of the riding, but we had fun cashing in our daylight chips on endless dirt…

Check out a few more photos below.

SOLD OUT! The Black on Black Radavist Jackal Fleece
Jackal_Fleece-1

We’re all really stoked on these fleeces. Not just because they’re printed gloss black on a black fabric, but because they’re made in Los Angeles by our friends at Team Dream Team. Yep. That’s right, these aren’t re-branded fleeces, they’re designed, cut and sewn in LA to Team Dream’s specifications. We wanted our first fleece (crazy right?) to be simple, featuring the Radavist’s spirit animal, a Jackal with a long tail that it’s always tripping and falling on. Weird, I know.

They fit like a glove, so if you like yours baggier than normal, order a size up. For what it’s worth, I wear a large shirt, a large jersey and most of my cut and sew clothing are size large- I wear a size large in these too.

Available now, in a limited release for $45 plus $10 domestic shipping or $18 international. Shipping is a lot because fleeces weigh a lot. Scoop up one below and many thanks to Mark from Vacation Vinyl for modeling.

SORRY SOLD OUT!
