If these do in fact work like Showers Pass says they do, it’d be a game changer for bikepacking, touring and any other ride where a stream crossing or torrential downpour takes place. See more information on the new Crosspoint Waterproof Socks at Showers Pass.
Combining two materials like bamboo and merino gives you the best of both worlds. You get the warmth and wicking of merino with the durability and softness of bamboo. Showers Pass has done just that with these men’s and women’s henley shirts. Perfect for autumn cycling, camping or even the office. Multi-functioning pieces like this make a lot of sense. Available now, at Shower’s Pass.
The Showers Pass Cascade Collection is designed for the unpredictable temperature and weather fluctuations riders experience while taking on mountain ranges like the Cascades. Included in this men’s and women’s collection are the Alpine Jersey, Cyclone Jersey, Track Pant, Gravel Short and a Liner Short.
The Cascade Collection provides a full range of versatile cycling apparel utilizing technical fabrics, reflective elements, innovative waterproof pockets, and UV protection; keeping cyclists comfortable at peak performance through multiple seasons and varying conditions.
Merino wool by itself is one of the best materials for cycling, year round. Add modal, nylon and spandex to it and suddenly you’ve got a form fitting, durable and stretchy garment. Perfect for a base layer.
The Showers Pass Body-Mapped Baselayer is first and foremost that: a baselayer that stretches to your body’s contours. Yet add it to the Showers Pass jacket line and you’ll find the ventilation areas match up, allowing excess heat in areas where you sweat to be released, keeping your winter rides more comfortable. At least in your torso.
