Riding in inclement weather takes a special kind of motivation and one thing that can really up the ante in terms of confidence is good, warm, and dry apparel. For their latest drop, PEdALED has raised the stakes with a series of kit pieces that can bolster your existing riding kit. From waterproof pants and jacket to insulated pants and jacket, there’s something for just about any winter ride. Head to PEdALED to see the full kit breakdown.
This jersey is made from a merino wool blend for natural breathability, durability, and body-heat regulation. It also incorporates ripstop chest panels to combat cold wind and keep your core temperature in check while also protecting against scratchy plants in the woods. The balaclava-style hood keeps the cold off your head and face, coupled with windproof cuffs to keep unwanted gusts out.
The entire Jary collection is a looser-fit, allowing you to layer up and dress more casually. These are designed in Japan and made in Italy.
One of our favorite new “gravel” shoes, the Fizik Powerstrap X4 just got a facelift thanks to the team at PEdALED. Their “JARY” colorway take-over revamps the X4 in a deep blue, with PEdALED branding marked throughout the shoe in a mustard gold, complimenting the gum sole. The Powerstrap already looked great as it was but these new collaboration shoes take the cake. They retail for $192 and are in stock at PEdALED. See more high res images below…
PEdALED recently launched their summer kit, dubbed Mirai. This drop includes lightweight jerseys, bibs, socks, and an all-weather jacket for when summer showers interrupt your ride. These pieces come in beautiful colors and are in stock now at PEdALED.

Condor teamed up with PEdALED in 2017 and 2018 with their pro cycling team but at the 11th hour, just before the start of the 2018 Tour of Britain, their key sponsor JLT, gave Condor some bad news they wouldn’t be continuing as they had been taken over unexpectedly, leaving them with a bit of a void. Condor really enjoyed teaming up with PEdAL ED as they are a very relaxed and easy to work with brand, so they decided to make an aluminum frame inspired by the Silk Road Mountain Race they sponsor and newly-launched Odyssey clothing range.
PedalEd has launched a limited edition pack featuring their bikepacking bags and various apparel designed for bikepacking and touring in Coral red. Included in the drop is their Cluster saddle pack, Internode half frame bag, Node snack pack, and Tendril handlebar bag. Head to PedalEd to see the entire drop.
Pedaled’s Odyssey Collection has a lot of smart details, but the standout piece is the new Odyssey Bibshorts, which feature three pockets for storing riding essentials on long distance rides. The entire collection looks amazing, so check it out at PedalEd.
Wind vests are great, but when it gets cold on your ride, it’s nice having a little extra protection. PedalEd’s newest collection, dubbed Tokaido, features a lightweight, packable, and insulated jacket and vest. Made with Polartec, these layers will keep your core warm when the weather changes. The same material keeps the US Special Forces warm when they’re in the field… See the Tokaido Jacket and Tokaido Vest at PedalEd.
Melancholic Beauty on the Silk Road Mountain Race
There’s a melancholic beauty to first times. It holds the excitement of the unknown, the nervous expectations of true adventure. With the inaugural Silk Road Mountain Race, race director Nelson Trees set out to create just that: a great adventure. ‘I wanted to create a race in an area that is close to my heart but is unknown to many. A little daunting, a bit out there. Something that any reasonably fit rider would be able to pull off but would also push contestants beyond their comfort zone.’ And that he did.
PedalED, makers of Japanese and Italian cycling apparel have launched a robust women’s collection, just in time for summer.
