Introducing the Radavist x Parker Dusseau ColdBlack® Shirt

Over the years, I’ve really begun to embrace the plain clothes ride. Rather than put on a kit every time I ride, these days I’ll just wear normal shorts and a shirt. A few months back, I began talking with Parker Dusseau about making a lightweight, black button-up shirt with mobility details like shoulder gussets and a good amount of stretch. I wear mostly all-black everything, and believe it or not, it’s hard to find a shirt like this that you can ride in all afternoon and still look sharp when you’re done. It also had to be made in the USA! Introducing the ColdBlack Radavist edition.

Perfect for the road, the trail, downtown and everywhere in between, this shirt has everything for the active cyclist starting with Coldblack, the UV protective and thermo regulating proprietary technology from Switzerland’s legendary Schoeller fabric mill. Details like a Powermesh Active Back, ultrablack reflective collar and cuffs and unbreakable rubber buttons round out this essential piece for the hot Spring and Summer months ahead.

Schoeller stretch technical cotton featuring Coldblack Technology
Coldblack provides 30 SPF UV protection, reducing heat build up in dark fabrics.
Powermesh Action Back
Unbreakable Rubber Buttons! Seriously. I tried.
Ultrablack Reflective Collar and Cuff Details
Tailored fit, consult the sizing chart. I wear a Large in most kits, shirts and the large fits me.
MSRP: $158

the Radavist 2016 Calendar: March

This is the third layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “Super Bloom.”

This photo was shot in Death Valley during the recent wildflower bloom. Spring explosions like this happen once every 10 years in Death Valley and drastically alter the landscape, scattering blues, purples, whites and yellows across the valley’s often dry and arid basin.

Steady Spinnin with the All-City Log Lady 27.5 SSMTB
Steady Spinnin with the All-City Log Lady 27.5 SSMTB

Minneapolis is a veritable playground for a healthy mix of urban and trail riding. With the River Bottoms just a short ride from downtown, as well as a plethora of other trails surrounding the city, you can easily ride from your house, to the woods and back on one gear. Part of that ideology is what’s inspired many of All-City‘s bicycles and was without a doubt the motivating force behind their newest bike, the Log Lady, a singlespeed mountain bike with 27.5 wheels and a rigid, segmented fork.

I’ve had the pleasure of riding a custom built Log Lady here in Los Angeles over the past few weeks. This is by no means a complete review, since I’ve yet to spend enough time on the Log Lady to thoroughly vet it but I will say, so far, it’s been a lot of fun. Painful fun, but fun nonetheless.
