A bit of this and a bit of that in this roundup. Whether you’re dealing with the cold or living it up in the sun there’s something new that may be appealing.
If you were a fan of the stylings the 80’s had to offer you may fancy Attaquer’s new line of sunglasses. Their retro geometric frames are built with modern hints balancing functionality and fashion. The offerings include the Sonic which has square-ish lenses that are reminiscent of a competitor’s Razor Blades. And the Pacelines which maintain a modern race fit lens on a retro-inspired frame. Each gets polycarbonate lenses, impact resistance, UV protection, scratch resistance, and hydrophilic nose and earpieces. Included is a hard case, 2 lenses and a microfiber pouch. Price is set at $150 AUS.
If commuting in skinny jeans is up your ally, Mission Workshop is offering the Icon city pant. It offers a look that won’t stand out in the office or your day to day travels. While its 4-way stretch fabric allows for maneuverability on the biking. They also get a DWR water-repellent finish, 4 pockets, breathable fabrics and a $285 price tag.
Search and State
New for 2018 from Search and State are the 3/4 bib knickers. They provide enough insulation to keep you warm on breezy fall, winter and spring rides. Each pair is made in New York City and is built to be comfortable. Lowers get silicon leg grips, the same high-end Cytech chamois from their S2R bibs and a thicker fabric for warmth on cooler rides. While up top, the $235 bibs use a breathable mesh fabric. They’re available in S, M, L and XL and they come only in black.
Donkey Label launched their Team Cross jersey in preparation for their rider, Tobin Ortenblad, to take on Reno in the National Cyclocross Championship last month. It’s complete with a locking YKK full front zipper, 3 rear pockets, reflective details, fleece interior and UV protection. The race-ready Cross jersey comes in two sleeve lengths – short and long – pricing set at $155 for the short and $165 for the long.
