Tenspeed Hero Summer Collection

With the days getting longer, the sun staying hotter and miles being put down on the road, Tenspeed Hero is welcoming the season change with a whole lotta new offerings in their lineup. They’ve issued a few new pieces for men and women, as well as more socks and a collaboration cap with Intelligentsia coffee. Head on over to Tenspeed Hero to see the full Summer Collection. I’m digging the kaleidoscope design.

Patagonia’s Better Than New Project

Com’on, admit it. You’ve got a few pieces of Patagonia in your wardrobe. My favorite is their down sweater. I never leave for a trip without it. That thing has saved me on more than one occasion over the years. Chances are, your clothing has hit a few snags after heavy use. Rather than tossing it in the trash, you choose to send it in for repair.

Patagonia’s repair facilities are in Reno, NV but now, there’s a new mobile repair truck. The Worn Wear truck is currently crossing the US to make on the spot repairs, sell used clothes and even teach you how to repair your own apparel.

Check out the full schedule below…

Acre’s been working on a few key items over the past year and if you can’t visit their San Francisco or Los Angeles storefronts, they’ve finally stocked their web shop with the new pieces. I’ve used a few of these and they’ve quickly become my new go-to trail apparel.

Giro: 2015 Ride LT and Ride Apparel for Men and Women

For 2015, Giro has overhauled their New Road line into two new categories: Ride LT, which is more like traditional lycra and Ride, which features more casual apparel. They’ve expanded the men’s and women’s line, bringing each a few new key pieces for spring riding. Most impressive to me is their women’s halter bib, which solves the problem of quick removal without having to remove a jersey.

Check out the full Giro Men’s Apparel line and the full Giro Women’s Apparel line online or head to your local dealer.

ACRE: Merino Faroe Pullover Hoodie

I can’t go on any trip without taking this hoodie, especially when touring or camping. The Faroe is my favorite Mission Workshop / Acre apparel piece and for good reason:

“The Faroe is an essential piece of the ACRE apparel system. Constructed using soft, lightweight Merino wool that can be worn as a next-to-skin base layer or as a simple hooded pullover. Merino wool naturally regulates body temperature in both hot and cold environments, resists odor, and stretches with your body. The Faroe is designed to perform over a wide range of temperatures and conditions and makes the perfect layering piece under any of our waterproof breathable jackets.

This edition of the Faroe is made with 18.9 micron 190g/sm Merino wool with added core filament nylon for strength and durability.

Made in USA.”
