Last week we tested out adidas’ latest cycling kit, adizero bibs and jersey. The lightest cycling kit in the world, weighing under 200grams (Jersey 65grams, Bibs 99grams). The bibs were designed with a triple-density TMF pad to give you six hours of riding comfort, they feature an active FORMOTION design. The cycling jersey is ergonomically cut for scorching days on the road and mountain passes and designed with underarm mesh ventilation for hot-weather riding.

All the Elements range comes in a beautiful topography printed envelope and for me the packaging is 1/3 of product satisfaction. Inside I found my wallet, a small wonderfully constructed wallet with water-resistant zippers that was no bigger than the cardholder I was previously using….
Recently we’ve been riding the AARN Chain rings. Between us we displaced our Campag Record, Zen and Sugino 75 rings to install the 144#N ring. I don’t think one of us would dare say we feel greater connectivity or sense the pure roundness from these changes… but what we are stoked on is that we’re running the most beautiful US made, carefully constructed chain rings we’ve ever seen and for that we give thanks. Check out the aamerican edition here.
Amongst our supporters this year is Brooklyn local ICNY. Mike produces some incredible garments and manages the impossible of balancing out desirability, looks and safety through his implementation of reflective graphics.
Chief amongst these are his sock line, these things aren’t all glitz and no go though, check out what makes the socks we’ve been racing and riding in this season.
