A Look at PEdAL ED’s All-Road Jary Collection

While PEdAL ED might be best known for its luxurious, form-fitting lycra attire, the brand has just released a more relaxed line of cycling apparel dubbed the Jary collection. This includes a short-sleeve merino t-shirt, a long-sleeve merino t, jacket, and riding shorts. The entire kit looks great with vibrant colors and a fit more in-tune with casual dirt rides to bikepacking. If I do say so myself, this is the best looking launch from the brand and I can’t wait to see some of it in person. Head to PEdAL ED now to check it out and see more photos below.

A good pair of shorts goes a long way in the summer months. Pedal ED’s latest launch includes products that are designed for wearing on and off-the-bike. They’re made from elastan and cotton, with four-way stretch tapered for a modern fit.

These shorts are made in Italy, come in denim, black, or olive, retail for $110 and in stock now at Pedal ED.

Pedal ED: Ultralight Baselayer

PedalED’s apparel is some of the finest on the market, yet unlike a lot of brands, their quality isn’t greatly offset by their consumer price, especially for either being made in Italy or Japan! These new Ultralight baselayers are $89 and come in a variety of sizes. Bring on the summer months with hot rides and yeah, meshed baselayers. Ever try one? Don’t knock it til you do.

Pedal ED’s New Mido Riding Boots

You don’t need SPD-compatible shoes to ride your bike. Especially on a tour. While at the Berliner Fahrradschau this weekend, I got to see the new PedalED Mido riding boots in person, complete with a full grain olive leather construction and a Vibram sole. These boots are water resistant, breathable and are made by hand in Italy. I’ve tried on a pair before and they were exceptional. If you’re interested, see more information at PedalED!

Pedal ED: Mido Riding Boots

Out of all of the Pedal ED products, the Mido Riding Boots are my favorite and what’s not to love about them? Made in Italy, by hand, these boots offer a weather-resistant exterior with a Vibram sole, perfect for gripping pedals and even icy sidewalks. While they don’t have any clipless capabilities, they make for great winter commuter boots.

And, they look damn sharp!

PEdAL ED Cycling Garments: Made in Japan and Italy

I feel like I haven’t had time to do much riding here in Austin this summer, but I did manage to get in a few rides in the new PEdAL ED garments I picked up in the UK while I was visiting during the L’Eroica Britannia.

PEdAL ED makes their wool cycling wear in Japan and their race-fit attire in Italy. Their look is quite unique, with some clever detailing, akin to Japanese clothing design and yet, it’s highly functional.

I’ll be putting some more miles into their Raku bibs before doing a proper review, but so far so good! Don’t miss that Okabe jersey or Kaidu jersey either – I wear my Kaidu on the cross or MTB. It’s one of the nicest jerseys I’ve worn…

At the end of the day, it’s not easy to make products domestically, yet PEdAL ED really nailed it. Check out more products at PEdAL ED!

Quick London Details

This morning, after no sleep and a long day of traveling, I landed at Heathrow with the sunrise. In fact, I’m pretty sure it was the sun, peeking through the neighbor’s window, hitting me in the face that kept me from getting an iota of sleep.

I hopped on the Express train and made my way to the hotel, before taking a stroll with the PEdAL ED team around the neighborhood.

Holding onto consciousness, in an almost sleepwalking state, we swung through a few shops, all of which I’d like to spend more time combing through the details and doing proper Shop Visits at, but in the interest of time, I’ll have to go with these random details.

Kinoko was amazing. One of the nicest shops I’ve been in and the Rapha Cycle Club was quite the experience… I’m here with Brooks England, for their Eroica event and our days are pretty packed, but I’ll do my best to document our journey.
