Many people say classics never go out of style and while that may be true, sometimes they need an update. Rapha took their most iconic jersey and gave it a few reconfigurations related to on-the-bike fit. I gotta say, the Classic jersey has always been my favorite piece of Rapha apparel and it is without a doubt the piece they built their whole look upon.

“Again, I am not the inventor of the gradient jersey design and Rapha is 100% entitled to do whatever they wish. I reference a ton of soccer jerseys, iconic designs, fashion and anything else that strikes my fancy. I also do my best to be honest and, most importantly, bring something new to cycling. These fades have been on my radar since the beginning stages of Team Dream.
We (Endo Customs & myself) could never really get the fade “just right” so it took a long time to produce a finished piece that lived up to our standard. We played with different ideas until pinstripes came up & there you go! The gradient, much like the stripes or polka dots cycling companies regularly visit, are one of the most basic graphic options available. The simplicity of the gradient jersey means that the concept is very easy to replicate… and I am cool with that!”

When Rapha does something domestically-produced either in London, or Italy you know it’s going to be good. It’s like they save the best products to be made by the best hands. Cycling apparel has been made by the Italians since the dawn of the bicycle and so it should be no surprise that Rapha looked to Italy to manufacture their new Pro Team Shadow kit. It’s designed for racing in inclement weather with high-tech fabrics and a super sleek fit. Check out more information below and see the line at Rapha. (more…)

Footwear giant Adidas has resurrected its cycling program with an full line spanning road to mountain. Everything from jackets, to bibs, tights and jerseys can now be ordered through select retailers… In Europe.
For US-customers, we can check out the entire collection in the embedded program or browse the catalog on the Adidas Cycling website. Personally, I think it’s an impressive launch and would like to hope that some of it makes its way Stateside.
The guys at Team Dream Team have been working hard on this fall launch, with tons of new products and unique designs. From jerseys to riding wallets and decals, there’s something for anyone’s budget, all in glowing hues and tones. One of my favorite pieces are the fade jerseys and the new Rumblin’ Rolls. All made in the USA!
All I gotta say is, good thing it’s payday! Swoop up at Team Dream Team.

This website focuses a lot on Made in the USA products, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t share products like this when I put them through the ringer, especially if it saves you some money.
The summer sun is unforgiving and while I’ll wear sun sleeves and a normal jersey on my road bike, I spent a good amount of time this year looking for long-sleeve sunblocking options for mountain bike rides. A large misconception about long sleeve shirts is that they’re too hot to wear on a sunny summer day and while that can be true for materials like cotton, there are silkweight options that will wick sweat, keep you cool and most importantly protect your arms from the sun’s harmful rays… (more…)

The pre-order is live now, so head over to Castelli to see more information. For what it’s worth, I’ve found these kits to fit true-to-size…
