In this clothing roundup, we take a closer look at what Velocio and ENVE can come up with for a road kit, a fresh pair of padded undershorts from Conation Collective, and a new do-it-all short from Mission Workshop.
Velocio & ENVE put their heads together for road gear
Velocio and ENVE have put their design teams together and released a road kit into the world. The collab includes men’s and women’s kits with art-deco designs. Each $180 jersey has reinforced back pockets to prevent sagging, SPF-50 protection on the body and SPF-30 on the sleeves, and recycled mesh sleeves. The $220 bib shorts are made with 100% recycled lycra and a 5-panel anatomical fit. Microfiber straps and leg grippers add icing on the cake. Each kit is available in sizes S-XL.
Conation Collective sews up Merino undershorts
The Denver based Conation Collective has launched the Monarch Merino Wool liner shorts. They’re made with 100% Merino mesh fabric with a wide waistband and 3 points to attach with the Vasquez and Steamboat shorts. A mountain bike specific chamois with ventilation and inserts adds more comfort to the undershorts. The $120 undershorts have leg pockets for tools, food, and cards, and are available in sizes S – XL.
Mission Workshop designs comfort for the Apoch
The latest release from Mission Workshop is their Apoch shorts. They’re designed for hikers, climbers, and casual riders. The shorts have the standard 2 hand pockets and back pockets, with the addition of a knife pocket and zipper thigh pocket. They’re built with stretchy nylon fabric that has water-repelling DWR properties. Fast drying and breathability go hand in hand to keep you comfortable during activity, while added stretch makes it easier to send it on the bike or the rock.
