Originally designed to be used in the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonnée – a 1,200km unsupported race to be complete in less than 90 hours – the Rapha Brevet Jersey and gilet has become a staple in their lineup. Each year, a signature gilet compliments the Brevet jersey as a high-visibility accessory for when riding at dusk, dawn and at night. This year, Rapha’s take on high-vis leads them to high contrast stripes, with each gilet and jersey combination using various colors.
The film For the Love of Mud had a successful launch here in Austin during the Cyclocross National Championships and I’m pretty gutted to have missed it. To help recoup some of the costs of such an overwhelming project, they’ve been running a kit pre-order, which ends tonight – sorry for the last minute notice.
If you’re interested in putting a pre-order in, now’s your last chance. There are men’s and women’s kits, along with vests. Head over to For the Love of Mud to see more.
Releases like these always make me miss the warm and sunny rides we have here in Texas, almost year round. Even as the temperatures are freezing currently now. The To the Sun Collection is Rapha’s latest capsule. Including sun sleeves, which are a summer staple ’round these parts, a lightweight cap and a lightweight, race cut jersey.
See the entire To the Sun Collection at Rapha and more information from the press-release below. Also, what’s up Tao!?
A while back, I gave Kyle from Tracko a Forestbound zippered pouch that was made from old M90 camouflage. Kyle and Bobby at Endo Customs made a pattern from that pouch, which was later used in the original Tracko vest.
Each year, Kyle sells a variation of his splinter camo, so this year, I asked if he’d want to do a collaboration. Pure and simple, this Blackened Splinter Camo jersey is just at home in the woods as it is on the road. Mix it with your favorite bibs, or the green Tracko splinter bibs…
Made in the USA by Endo Customs in Downtown LA, these jerseys are $135 plus shipping ($7 US and $15 international) and are in stock now. They will start to ship this week and will come with a replaceable zipper pull for those of you who don’t like the metal zipper.
Scoop one up below. Sorry, Sold out!
Aaron at Stinner Frameworks worked with Sean at Team Dream Team to design a “jailhouse” and “Barbasol” kit. With a black and white, or red, white and blue option, there’s something for everyone. If you’re up to your neck in kits, there are also matching caps.
Head over to Stinner Frameworks for more information.
Oh, pizza. How I love thee.
Rothera’s got the perfect ride motivator (pizza) printed up in an homage to Team Z. Made by Castelli, these jerseys aren’t going to last long. Like a pizza at a bike shop on a Friday afternoon, they’re gonna go fast! Pick up a Rothera Cycling Team Za jersey while it’s still piping hot.

I love this jersey so much. Sean really nailed it. The new Dots What’s Up long sleeve jersey is now in stock at Team Dream’s web shop. Made by Endo Customs in Los Angeles, this jersey looks great with the Sacre Bleu! Navy Compressor Bib.
