I really have to commend Giro on the Spring 2014 New Road Women’s line. When I first saw it at Eurobike, it really impressed me. Not only did they keep a similar style as the men’s line with the same colors and silhouettes, but they made garments specifically for women. Holler Jen!
Here are two videos from the Spring 2014 lookbook shoot, one of which is an interview with Kelli Samuelson on cycling apparel for women. After all the talk I heard from the female consumer market when the men’s first season dropped, I hope it’s received well. They really went all in on this line.
Keep an eye on Giro for more!
Nice videos Chris!

As part of the “Beer Suit” series, CBNC got David Flores to design an ENDO skinsuit based on his unique style. Speaking of style, meet Mel, she’s one rad lady and she just so happens to do my vinyl decals. Mel is just one of the CBNC team riders, head over to Ace’s Flickr to meet the rest. That Greg is sure dreamy!
While America watches grown men wearing spandex slam into each other repetedly tonight (no, it’s not a Cat 5 road crit), I’m more stoked on hearing that the ASO announced there will be a women’s race at the 2014 Tour de France. Also, I thought it was coincidental that this documentary came across my radar last week…
Half the Road is a documentary that explores the world of women’s professional cycling and why there is a great deal of inequality in the sport. But it’s not a solely a call for action, it also features Kathryn Bertine’s quest to make the 2012 Olympics. You can read about it more here and donate here!
This is amazing!
“If mountain bikers use saws and other tools, it’s often to create wood features in the forest. Julia Hofmann used them for a different reason, though: to finish her bachelor thesis. No, she didn’t assemble a series of wooden jumps and drops for school, but rather transformed a Series 2A Land Rover into her travelling bike caravan. Simply put, the German racer built her own dream vehicle, a two-wheeler’s four-wheeler that she’ll use to get to riding spots the world over. Below, she tells us the story of how it all came together.”

There aren’t enough options for women in the cycling industry. It’s true. So when I see something like this, I have to share it. Developed by Tenspeed Hero’s sponsored racers (like Illinois state ‘cross champion Dani Smith), specifically for women, these bibs are just as technical as they are classic.
