Cadence for Strava

It’s always great to see two brands you admire join forces, even if it’s for something as simple as a cycling cap. Cadence and Strava did just that, designing a cap that will pull a chord in both design geeks and diehard fanboys. Head over to Strava to pick one up.

Seeking Versatility with the Stainless Brodie Wolff – Morgan Taylor
Seeking Versatility with the Brodie Wolff – Morgan Taylor

In recent years, bikes of all kinds have been segregated into smaller and smaller categories, marketed to more and more specific uses. Meanwhile, riders are looking for a performance machine that allows them to enjoy a wide range of riding. Splitting the difference between categories can make for a confusing experience while looking for a bike. The Brodie Wolff is one such bike, with DNA from a variety of places. I’ve spent the past few months ripping the Wolff on roads, trails, and everywhere in between.

Grinduro Knuckle Gloves

I’m not sure if I’ve ever looked more forward to a cycling event as Grinduro. The format is sure to bring about competition, yet I doubt many people will be taking it seriously. Personally, I’m gonna be in party ride mode. Especially after these next few weeks!

To liven up the environ, Giro’s got a few fun products slated to launch at Grinduro and of which we already looked at in this year’s Interbike coverage. These knuckle gloves will be a hit, I’m sure…

You can still sign up for this event!

Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team Cycling Caps

This one’s too good to not give some love:

“A couple of years ago, Padraig, over at Red Kite Prayer, wrote a great paean to the cotton cycling cap. People have been asking if there would ever be a Richard Sachs cycling cap about as long as I’ve been building bicycles frames. It took me nearly 4 decades, but I finally am bringing a cycling cap to the market. And now I’m bringing another one.”

Pick one up for $22 at Richard Sachs.

Compass Randonneur Handlebars

After vigorous testing, a full run at PBP and seeking out Japan’s Nitto for production, the Compass Randonneur handlebars are now available. These Extralight bars are light. More light than any of Nitto’s current offerings, yet strong enough to take on fire roads, cobbles or whatever you can throw at them. They are available in widths of 400, 420, 440 mm and are in stock now at Compass.

Silca’s New Pocket Impero Pump

We saw this in the Interbike 2015 coverage already and it seems they’ve landed…

Silca took their Frame Pump and shrunk it to a jersey pocket, or pack-friendly size. Complete with the same leather washer as the Frame Pump, a unique silicone locking grip and better heat transfer for more efficient pumping, the Pocket Impero packs a punch. Made in the USA and in stock now at Silca.

Now when’s that Yanco for Silca saddle bag going to be in stock?
