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.”

Showers Pass: Body Mapped Baselayers for Men and Women

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.
