For the start of the summer season, with your adventures and outdoor getaways, Velocidade in collaboration with Vera Cycling invite you to discover their new creations on the theme of recreation.
A lightweight cycling cap is available in several sizes that adapts to be worn under a helmet with its short visor, or simply without a helmet to protect against bad weather during your explorations. And the Satellite, a solid and spacious hip bag, is ideal for all types of outings – you can wear it around the waist, over the shoulder, or attach it to your handlebars.
A 4-handed partnership: in Roubaix, two hands from Céline (especially the right glued to her computer mouse), designed the pattern which was intended to be playful, hybrid, versatile, and unisex. In Mirepoix, with his meticulous hands and countless sewing machines, Ricardo cuts the specially printed fabric and assembles the bags.
Velocidade is the feeling of freedom given by speed, the wind that makes the eyes cry, the sound of the air blowing near the ears, a little flavor of adrenaline that makes you feel good. At Velocidade, we believe in the bicycle as the means of transport of the future: no CO2 emissions whether the distances are short or long, long life or even a lifetime, and moreover, it’s good for your health! We have created a set of responsible luggage for bikes and backpacks, designed and handcrafted in our workshop in Mirepoix, in Ariège, to accompany the small and big adventures of each of us on a daily basis.

Kitsbow Icon Denim $324
Back in 2015, I rode with Kitsbow in Los Angeles in the Icon Flannel and since then it’s been one of my top ten favorite pieces of bike apparel ever. In fact, I just shipped my Icon out to a friend since it was a little too small for me. Kitsbow just announced a new generation of Icon shirt with the Icon Denim shirt! The Icon Denim comes with all of the technical features you love on the original wool Icon, but the shirt fabric is made with one of two types of denim, in standard, athletic, and women cuts.

Drop bars are great for longer rides but it’s hard to argue the control and visibility gained from a flat bar riding position for commuting or innercity riding. All-City just built the Space Horse with a flat bar spec, equipped with MicroShift and we dig how it looks. Check out the full specs at All-City and roll on over to your LBS to throw a leg around one!
Shopping for mountain bike apparel can be tough. Half of it looks like motocross gear and the other half is so baggy you feel like you stepped out of a 1990s Ron Jon surf shop catalog. When we comes across modern, minimal apparel, we’ll share it because less is more. Foehn is a new company, specializing in apparel for running, climbing, hiking, and mountain biking. We’ve been testing their Cortes Polartec Long Sleeve Shirt and it’s been a favorite for hot summer riding. Roll on over to check out Foehn for yourself!
