Talk about a genius design for female cyclists. Check out more information on the Women’s Ride Halter Bib at Giro.
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.
Twin Six’s 2015 made in the USA apparel line has some gems in it, including the Providence Jersey. Inspired by the Eye of Providence, with radiating lightening bolts and rendered in light yellow, this design is available either as a full kit, with matching bibs and a cap, or just in a jersey.

As part of the Hoy brand, the former accomplished – to say the least – track racer has teamed up with UK company Vulpine on a line of cycling apparel. Inspired by vintage style, with a modern fit, the Hoy Vulpine line is in stock now online. Or you can see the line in person at the London Bike Show.
Also, that bike is so good!

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.”

If I come across nice apparel for women, I always like to share it, especially when it’s one as clean as Machines for Freedom’s new line. The Dot Print, Geo Floral and Endurance Bibs are all in stock now at Machines for Freedom.
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.
