Merino wool by itself is one of the best materials for cycling, year round. Add modal, nylon and spandex to it and suddenly you’ve got a form fitting, durable and stretchy garment. Perfect for a base layer.
The Showers Pass Body-Mapped Baselayer is first and foremost that: a baselayer that stretches to your body’s contours. Yet add it to the Showers Pass jacket line and you’ll find the ventilation areas match up, allowing excess heat in areas where you sweat to be released, keeping your winter rides more comfortable. At least in your torso.

Fall is my favorite riding season, particularly because of the apparel offerings and layering options. There’s nothing like climbing for hours, stripping layers to descend in the brisk, chilly air wearing a favorite jacket.
With each year’s season change come new offerings from brands, one of which I’ve been really enjoying is Café du Cycliste. They just launched their fall / winter 2014 lookbook and it’s looking great.

Like it or not, fall is here and apparel companies everywhere are “launching” their autumn lineup. The hues for the year are orange, greys and browns. Not much has changed in the outerwear industry, in terms of these colors, but one thing’s for sure, cycling companies have bitten the bullet and begun to match their offerings with classic silhouettes, reminiscent of yesteryear’s garments. Personally, I’m into it. Especially with all these urban hobos riding around on this website.
