All-City’s got a new kit in their catalog, an homage to a classic Merckx jersey. These kits are made by Pactimo from their Ascent Air 2.0 jersey and Ascent Vector Pro bibs with a retail of $105 for the jersey and $119 for the bibs.
This kit is in QBP’s catalog now, which means there’s no pre-order or wait times. Just holler at your local All-City dealer and see more photos and information at All-City.
Ritchey brings back a retro design for their new kits. These “Retro Blue” jerseys and bibs are made in Los Angeles by Endo Customs and are in stock now at Ritchey.
Inspired by the light, clouds and mountains of the Bay, Mash’s new ‘cross kits radiate bright colors over a simple hatch pattern. Available now as jerseys, bibs, socks and even skinsuits at MASH.
When Morvelo teams up with Death Spray Custom, you know it’s gonna be good. Here’s the latest from the two UK-based brands, a cycling kit inspired from a recent motorcycle suit David designed for Blood Brothers last year…
If you’re into this design (I sure am) head over to Morvelo to swoop because it’s not going to stick around for long!
Cadence’s Conquerer kit returns and this time it’s available in olive drab as a jersey and bib short. Or if you prefer the original blue kit, that’s back in stock now as well. Head over to Cadence to see the full collection.
Poler‘s kits are always the best! For the forthcoming fall months, they’ve worked out a pre-order with Castelli on a pair of bibs, a jersey and arm warmers using their Land-designed pinecone pattern. 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…

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Bike Jerks have just launched a kit pre-order. There’s a lot of great information up on the Bike Jerks blog, so head over to check it out. If you’d like to pre-order, you can do so at Podiumwear. Production will take 4-weeks.
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 we’re proposing a complete break from the hegemonic monotony of Corporate Body Advertising. Rather than being an unwilling participant in some Business Company’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, it’s that. So we told these five contemporary artists to Interpret that.”
Sigrid Calon’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.
