I have no way of describing what I’m seeing here, so we’ll just let Manual for Speed do the ‘xplaining:
“The way we see it Cycling Kit is an opportunity for Elevated Personal Expression. As such weâ€™re proposing a complete break from the hegemonic monotony of Corporate Body Advertising. Rather than being an unwilling participant in some Business Companyâ€™s fall product campaign, why not express your own aesthetic; an aesthetic that says culture counts, style counts and god damn it, art counts.
What is it about bike racing that we love so much, is it the Chaos, the Color, the Motion and the Trajectory? Yeah, itâ€™s that. So we told these five contemporary artists to Interpret that.”
Sigrid Calonâ€™s and Zio Ziegler‘s Artist Residency Kits are now in stock at Manual for Speed.
If there ever was to be a truly balleur cycling kit, it’d have to be a Gucci homage in white. Made by Endo Customs in Los Angeles and available now for pre-order at More Track Bike.
All-City’s newest cycling kits match the new and improved Mr. Pink road bike. Inspired by all-things pink in cycling, like Eddy Merckx’s Telekom team for instance, the Paglia Rosa kits are available at your local All-City dealer but act quick because word has it, they’re going fast. See more photos at All-City’s Flickr.
Cadence’s yin and yang, high-contrast, light fabric Keta kit is now in stock. Black or white, your choice. I really like the look of this kit, especially the darker one, especially how it keeps to high visibility without using fluoro…

The new Cadence Keta Kit uses a repetitive pattern and an ultra lightweight material to keep you visible and cool during the hot summer months. Modeled by Cadence founder Dustin Klein and photographed by Brenton Salo, the following images offer up a preview to the Keta kit which will be dropping shortly. See more below and as always, keep an eye on Cadence for more. (more…)
Manual for Speed is keeping you cool during the hotttt summer months by teaming up with five different artists and allowing them full access to the canvas we call “cycling kits.” The first two kits to be released feature the artwork of Jerry Inscoe and Mike Perry.
Additional kits designed by Sigrid Calon, Karan Singh, and Zio Ziegler areÂ setÂ toÂ beÂ releasedÂ laterÂ thisÂ summer.Â
For now, check out Jerry Inscoe and Mike Perry’s cycling kits at Manual for Speed’s web shop.
This Thursday, Cadence’s shop is having an open house to launch their new Keta kits. They’ll also have select works from Dustin Klein on display as well as a For the Love of Mud screening. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, make sure you swing by!
When a guy like Jeff Curtes shoots photos and writes a bit of copy, you don’t paraphrase his work. Sure, you edit it down a bit but it’s best left untouched. When he contacted me to share a recent photoshoot for Australia’s MAAP, I very much obliged to let him do just that. Read on for the full account and a selection of photos from Jeff’s recent shoot on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia… (more…)
After all the requests, I’ve decided to open up the Radavist Discharged Kit for pre-order tomorrow. It’ll run for only a week and should be delivered by the beginning of July. You’ll be able to order bibs, arm warmers and the jersey all separately, or all together. Hopefully this quells everyone’s need for an all-black kit and as always, thanks for the support.
The pre-order will open tomorrow at noon CST and will be open all week, until Monday, the 15th.
A lot of people have asked for this kit to be restocked and I’m considering opening a pre-order to ensure everyone’s particularities can be addressed. This way, if you prefer a large jersey and medium bib, that can happen. So here’s a query to the readers. Would you like a week long pre-order with an end of June, early July delivery?
Let us know in the comments. Andre’s been waiting to ship more kits!
