2015 Club Ride Open Road casual road cycling apparel for men and womenInfused with a fresh round of financing, Club Ride has steadily expanded from their western-style mountain bike clothing origins. They now offer a full range of casual gear to fit virtually any type of riding you’re doing, including road and commuting.

The new Open Road line shown at left fits a bit slimmer than their mountain bike kit, with features more suited to the pavement.

Both men’s and women’s versions have a jersey and short, and they share key features like a seamless gussetted crotch, abrasion resistant fabric, side waist adjustment strap and zippered pockets on the shorts and reflective bits and UPF20 on the jerseys. The men’s Phantom shorts are made with DurX, a four-way stretch wicking fabric with DWR finish and 11″ inseam. The women’s Zest shorts have a lighter weight fabric with 2-way stretch with an 8.5″ inseam.

Likewise, the jerseys sport different materials, with the men’s being a bit heavier and having an extra pocket on the rear. The women’s is lighter with a single storage pocket on the back, but both get media ports for headphone wires. Pricing is $59.99 to $79.99.

Take a peek at what’s underneath, below…

Even newer than Open Road is their expanded line of padded inner wear. With complete lines of men’s and women’s cycling shorts and underwear, they’ve divided up the lines into versions for various time in the saddle:

It’s part of their improved retail packaging and display efforts aimed at helping retailers show off the line better and their customers to more easily choose the right piece. Each is marked with a “ride time” recommendation. So, if your rides are typically four or more hours, then go with the ones marked as such. That ensures you’re getting the support and padding needed. One really nice feature on the bibshorts is the smooth, soft leg openings and lightweight mesh. Since they’re made to wear under their shorts, they kept them lightweight and smooth…and they look awesome.

There’s also plenty more casual options for the commuter or weekend bar hopper. With shorts and jeans/pants, there’s something for year ’round riding. Yes, that sleeveless one on the right is part of the mountain bike collection. Please don’t wear that to work.

Although I have no issue with casual clothes designed for riding, if you need a chamois and are going for an actual ride, just wear your shorts/bibs. Why wear two layers of clothes (one of which serves no purpose on an actual ride)

This news seems a little late, no? Great designs regardless.

It’s an aesthetic that some people, including myself, really like. Sometimes I don’t want to be all “racer-ed” out. Their jersey’s have the biggest appeal, in my opinion, and they even made our sweet, custom shop shirts that I can wrench and rip in. I’m not going to look like a gumby wearing bibs and a Go West Jersey, so I throw on a pair of their Airliners WITH shorts over top. I am supremely comfortable, and my taint isn’t raw after a ride. Plus I can go grab a bite to eat without changing or looking like a tool in spandex. Win-win-win.

Their stuff is cool, but I sure wish they made an XS in the mens sizes. I’m 5′ 6″ and 150 pounds, and even for “baggy” their shirts are huge on me. I’d buy a slightly smaller size.

Second Evan… Stuff’s a bit too baggy in the smaller sizes. Not asking for a “racer cut,” just sizing that actually fits a racer build.

I’m usually a medium or large but I can easily sport a small CR jersey.

Evan and YoMamma- There are XS sizes added to a lot of styles for spring/summer 2015. Check clubrideapparel.com for new products. Thanks for that feedback!

JBikes,
Thanks for commenting, just to let you know our bib has a ton of mesh, lower front cut so much easier to take a leak and super ventilated chamois so actually there are many benefits to wearing our InnerWear. Hope you try it at some point in the future. Scott/CEO

Loved it, until this part, “Likewise, the jerseys sport different materials, with the men’s being a bit heavier and having an extra pocket on the rear. The women’s is lighter with a single storage pocket on the back”

So, us ladies get to buy a jersey that’s made of lighter material and more likely to rip or shred or tear, and we get less storage space. This is a bit disappointing, as their designs are nice and the look comfortable. But I like well made clothing with adequate storage space. Screw ‘lighter materials’. That’s code for ‘Big rips on 5 wear’.

I notice no bibshorts for women offered. We women do appreciate our shorts firmly held up just as much as any man Also, none of the women’s shorts listed online say they are for riding more than 3 hours while the men have shorts available for up to 4 hours. This is just too glaring of a problem to ignore. While I really like the look of some of their women’s line I will not be purchasing their products.

Jess- Club Ride does have a short for Women for a 3-hour wear time (Montcham). When we made the AirLiner for men it was a shot in the dark and has really taken off. Your comments are appreciated and are looking at all options for the future. In regards to the 3-hour pad we have had numerous people try the pad and have ridden 5+ hours in it with no issues. I myself have spent 5+ hours in the men’s equivalent to the Montcham (Woodchuck) and was very pleased with it. I think if you tried the Montcham you would be very impressed!

Thank you Club Ride. This is a step in the right direction. Unless getting a paycheck to wear gaudy lycra, there is zero reason to ride around looking like a nascar billboard twiggy superhero wanna-be. It’s more than time for cycling to grow up and look and act relatively normal. Heck, imagine that, maybe cars will give us a little more space if we look like adults, rather than in a costume.
