Ground control to NASA nerds: You can pay tribute to your space travelling heroes while you ride! State Bicycle Co. is blasting off into 2021 with their new Astronaut Collection clothing and Galaxy components.

The NASA-branded Astronaut clothing line includes three jerseys, one pair of bibshorts and a reflective jacket. Alongside the clothing, State Bicycle Co has added a stellar-looking ‘Galaxy’ oil-slick finish to several of their components, so you can give your bike some cosmic color accents too.

While State Bicycle says they’re “Boldly going where no bike brand has gone before”, they’re not the first to feature NASA logos on their riding gear: Bikerumor covered Scicon’s similarly-themed Space Agency Collection last summer.

Astronaut Collection clothing:

State Bicycle Co. Astronaut jersey, whiteState Bicycle Co is expanding their sustainable clothing line, and most pieces from the Astronaut Collection (starting with these three jerseys) are made with REPREVE recycled polyester. Furthermore, the jerseys are made from 100% post-consumer waste, and their packaging is 100% post-consumer recycled material too.

The white and black Astronaut Collection jerseys were designed to mimic the look of NASA’s space suits, while the Atmosphere black/blue color scheme was inspired by views of planet Earth from outer space. Construction is identical between the three jersey designs: All styles feature full length zippers, hem grippers, and a three-pouch rear pocket. Fit-wise, the jerseys offer a performance cut.

The black, white and Atmosphere Astronaut Jerseys sell for $79.99. All are available in sizes S-XXL.

State Bicycle Co. Astronaut bibshortsThe Astronaut Bibs are made using mostly recycled materials (including REPREVE polyester) and shipped in 100% recycled packaging. These shorts feature a performance cut, and include high-grade black leg grippers. The other black panels utilize a Rich-Black lycra that resists fading with wear.

The Astronaut Bibs retail at $89.99. Sizes range from S-XXL.

State Bicycle Co. Astronaut Reflective JacketIt’s just my humble opinion, but this jacket’s reflective silver fabric is perfect for a space-suit inspired piece! Of course, the fully reflective shell makes this jacket an ideal choice for any city commuter who wants to remain highly visible to motorists.

The Astronaut Reflective Jacket features wind and water-resistant materials, and has one hidden pocket. Its cape vent and armpit vents should keep you from overheating while you ride. The jacket is the only garment in the Astronaut Collection that doesn’t feature recycled materials. MSRP is $89.99, and sizes range from S-XXL.

State Bicycle Co.’s alloy Wider Riser Bars are 800mm wide, with a 24mm rise and a 31.8mm clamp diameter. They weigh in at 330g, and their MSRP is $34.99.

  1. this stuff (and all oil slick stuff) looks like the knock versions on Ebay and Aliexpress. the oil slick look has been popular on those sites for a long time now and this stuff looks like more expensive verison of that. and the weight is crazy on that seat post. 300g+ is what walmart bike seat posts weigh.

  2. Yes, NASA stuff is pure *insert random Chinese Facebook brand* here.

    Thing about NASA logo is that within certain parameters, companies can use it on merchandising for free, you just have to tell NASA and register with them. This is why you see so much NASA branded stuff, something I find a bit odd because wearing a NASA T-shirt used to be a geeky thing, but now it’s just normal/fashionable it seems. You can see that they’re following the NASA rules because other than on the bibs which would be hidden when wearing anyway, the State branding on the cloths is almost non-existent (because NASA rules say that you can’t co-brand things to make it seem like NASA endorses the brand).
