You may have noticed your morning and evening rides being a bit colder than normal. Today’s Roundup features many apparel options from some of our favorite brands.
ORNOT has you covered for the incoming winter months with Thermal Cargo Bibs and Bib Tights for men and women, along with a slew of other cold riding gear. The Cargo Bib Shorts feature 4 pockets, 1 on each leg, 2 in the back, and reflective detailing on the backs of each leg. While the Bib Shorts are rated to 50-64º, the Bib Tights are rated to 38-60º riding. Both are available for pre-order today with a November 17th ship date.
Form-fitting, layered apparel is the key to staying comfortable in inclement weather. PEDALeD just dropped its Essential Winter collection, featuring staple apparel items for men and women including bib tights, jerseys, merino base layers, and a sleek-looking Alpha® fabric by Polartec® packable wind vest.
Roll on over to PEDALeD to see the full drop.
Cascada’s popular Land Wool shirts have finally landed for women. These stretchy button-up riding shirts are made from a breathable wool/polyester blend fabric and guarantee maximum comfort all year round, combining the benefits of wool (thermoregulation, odor control, insulation even when wet) with the quick drying and transpiration of polyester.
These shirts are made in Italy, are available in four colors, and shipping today from Cascada.
“We’re interested in the search for empty roads that take you everywhere and nowhere; the spirit of adventure still alive in the frontier. Inspired by rugged terrain and fueled by an appetite for adventure, we set out for Big Sky country on a mission to showcase ENVE’s new apparel line at home on the range. We’re proud to present The Last West: Montana – the first in a series of untold stories from the American West, as experienced by our friends at Coyote.” – Neil Shirley, ENVE

The Hakka MX has gotten some extensive love over here since its inception, with John reviewing it at its launch date and later with the new-at-the-time Shimano GRX drivetrain. While the frames themselves haven’t changed, Ibis recently rolled out new branding, meaning it was time for a refresh of the Hakka MX platform. For this Fall, you can select either a frameset for $2,699, a Rival build for $4,599, or a GRX build for $4,899 in either Wizard Potion (pictured), Sacre Bleu, or Salt Water Taffy colors.
Check out the full scoop at Ibis.

Watch Braydon Bringhurst’s feature-length film “8600FT” above, documenting his climb of the iconic “Whole Enchilada” trail in Moab, Utah.
“The Whole Enchilada” is one of mountain biking’s most epic trails – attracting expert-level riders from around the globe to Moab, Utah, to challenge its 8000-plus feet of descending over rugged and raw terrain littered with rock drops and boulder fields. But no one has ever tried to ride up every inch of the trail – until now.
Equally mentally challenging as physical, “8600FT” is a 1.5-hour feature-length film of Braydon Bringhurst’s attempt to summit “The Whole Enchilada.”
