It’s merely by coincidence that I’m in Australia when this kit was completed at Endo Customs in Los Angeles but it worked out perfectly. My original concept for doing the Radavist’s first kit was looking to nature for inspiration, particularly venomous animals you might encounter in the woods or while camping.
The Black Widow spider (USA), or in this case, the Redback spider (OZ) has a far worse reputation than its bite, yet the population fears it. An all-black spider, with a bright red marking on its abdomen will induce your fight or flight response. These kits were an homage to nature’s way of visual coding… The same marking makes it visible in the woods as you’re ripping trails, or on a road climb.
Marked with “Rubber Side Up” on the drive-side leg, the Radavist Jackal on the other, the script logo across the chest, on the lower back and the raidō r-rune from the Elder Futhark on the upper back of the bib, it’s a straight forward, yet classic kit that hopefully will become your staple.
Price is $270 + shipping for the bibs and jersey. I’m only selling this paired for this round. That means you get a medium jersey and medium bibs in each order, along with some stickers and a stem cap. This is not a pre-order, these kits are in stock and will ship this week.
SORRY SOLD OUT but thanks to FYXO for the photos!
Nobody does camo like Tracko! His splinter camo design is one of my favorite kit patterns and now, he’s put a splinter spin on the staple white jersey. It’s summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear snow camo. Bibs, shorts, men’s jersey and a women’s jersey are now up for pre-order.
Pre-order the Snow Splinter Kit from now until July 9th at Trackosaurus Rex.
Castelli makes damn nice cycling kits and Garrett Chow always produces such rad design work for Mash. The Parallax lineup is looking great and I love the concept behind it.

While my favorite go-to bibs for MTB riding are the Giro New Road bib undershorts, my new favorite non-bibshorts are the Kitsbow Merino Base Shorts.
I wore them every day on the Oregon Outback and I’ve begun using them exclusively during short and sweet MTB rides. Because the main material is merino wool, they dry fast, feel soft, keep you cool in warm weather / warm in cold and don’t get super funky like synthetic blends tend to. They’re great for camping or touring as well, because they’ll dry faster than synthetic shorts.

Male models have it tough. People throw a new kit on you, put a bike under your legs, and send you flying down a fire road. Sean from Team Dream has been known to turn a trick for money once and a while, although sometimes the trick turns him. At least I think that’s what happened on this All-City kit photoshoot gone bad.
Still, Kyle shot some great photos of him anyway – and they’re probably better this way! Head to All-City for specs on the Chevron bibs and Chevron jersey, in stock now through your local dealer.

Cafe du Cycliste’s new spring lineup looks great. For those hot months, the Lucienne Lightweight jersey’s got your back but my favorite piece is the Antoinette bib and base layer combination.

Is this trap, or dubstep? I don’t even know anymore but I like the new Funeral Cycling kits.
Tenspeed Hero’s new spring line looks great. With products for men and women. Like, bibs designed specifically for women. Not just bibs made for men that women have to wear. Head over to Tenspeed Hero for bibs made for men, women and socks made for feet.
