SUGOi Evolution Short - Men's
Updated with a 3D-formed RC Pro chamois for blissful comfort, the Sugoi Men's Evolution Short is ready for everything from leisurely jaunts along your favorite boulevard to grueling grinds up alpine passes. As an affordable solution to pricier cycling shorts with unnecessary features and flashier designs, the re-designed Evolution Short offers an optimal blend of support and quick-drying comfort with its EvoPlus fabric. This fabric actively wicks moisture off your body, facilitating rapid drying under sweltering riding conditions.
The RC Pro chamois is constructed with 15-millimeter high-density foam that absorbs fatiguing road vibration. Ventilated perforations reduce moisture build-up when you're sweating profusely in hot weather. Four-way stretch panels conform to the body's individual contours, maximizing long-distance comfort for ticking off that century ride from your cycling bucket list.
Giordana FR-C Pro Bib 5cm Shorter Short - Men's
We love Giordana's FR-C Pro Bib Shorts and know we can count on them for comfort on the hardest rides and longest days. For those of us not blessed with the longest femurs or if you prefer leg cuffs a little on the shorter side, Giordana has the bibs for you. The FR-C Pro Bib 5cm Shorter Short are the same supremely comfortable bibs as the standard FR-C but with leg cuffs that are, you guessed it, 5 centimeters shorter.
Giordana crafts these bibs from HC50 High Compression Power Lycra which is a supercharged version of Lycra, taking the previous HC-44 to the next level by providing additional compression with its higher thread count. HC-50’s ultra-compact knit is both lightweight and offers the performance benefits of higher compression rates that are usually only found in heavier materials. The leg band's feature new fabrics that easily expand for comfort yet comfortably stay put throughout your ride. The 5cm shorter cuffs are a godsend for those with shorter femurs who don't want leg openings that are just above the knees or folks who prefer their tan lines a little higher up on the leg.
Giordana's FormaRed cut gets a thumbs up from us, and the revised construction refines the fit even more by eliminating creased and bunched fabrics that can occur throughout the pedal stroke. The excellent Cirro OmniForm chamois is multi-density that's maximum thickness is 14mm. The top layer utilizes a Nylon microfiber that incorporates aloe vera permanently infused into the threads during the manufacturing process that creates a cooling sensation and reduces odor. Underneath this layer is 4mm thick memory foam in a waffled texture pattern that adds breathability and moisture management by moving perspiration to the outside of the bibs for quick evaporation.
POC Resistance Enduro Mid Short - Men's
Thankfully, you don't have to be in British Columbia to enjoy the spoils of flow trails anymore. Whether you're lucky enough to have ribboning brown pow minutes from your house, or you're traveling further afield to reach it, make sure you're wearing the Poc Resistance Enduro Mid Men's Short when you and your indulgent enduro beast reach the trailhead at last.
Pre-shaped to accommodate the body armor you'll want for turning at the "harder way down" fork in the trail, the Resistance is designed to yield to your movements over the course of a technical descent. Its light and breathable fabric durable enough to withstand brushes against trail furniture when your line doesn't go as planned. And when you can't avoid pedaling uphill, the airy mesh leg vents promise to keep the air moving as you sweat it out.
Castelli Perfetto Vest - Men's
The original Fawesome vest—which is basically a Gabba without sleeves and pockets—only has one identifiable flaw: the name is… questionable, at best. That's just one of the areas where Castelli found room for improvement with the Perfetto Men's Vest, and anyone who's spent time in the Fawesome will be surprised to learn that, yes, Castelli did actually manage to improve the vest. These improvements include an improved water-resistant treatment and the much appreciated addition of two rear pockets. While we appreciate the material update, the pockets make the Perfetto Vest a far more versatile option by providing the storage options that the Fawesome never did. The Perfetto isn't an indulgence, it's an investment that upgrades your entire wardrobe.
The Perfetto Vest rocks the same Windstopper X-Lite Plus fabric on the front and shoulders as the rest of the Perfetto line, which places the most protection where body meets wind. Windstopper X-Lite Plus has 1.4 billion impossibly small pores per square-inch that guard your microclimate jealously. They don't let wind or rain in, but they do let water vapor out. And when the marketing materials claim this fabric is windproof, you can actually believe them. A given material's wind resistance is measurable in a rating called CFM, which stands for cubic feet per minute, used to measure the volume of air that passes through a fabric in, you guessed it, one minute. In order to be considered truly "windproof," a fabric must register a CFM of equal to or less than 1.0. All fabrics bearing Gore-Tex's Windstopper branding meet or exceed this rating, so they are literally windproof.
The vest's back is made with Nano Flex Light instead of Windstopper X-Lite Plus, which is one of the only apparent variances in construction between the Perfetto Vest and the Perfetto Jersey. Nano Flex Light is a flexible, thermally insulating material that's been coated with countless nanofilaments in order to add water-resistance. It gives flex across your shoulders and ventilates better than the vest's front, helping to regulate your body temperature for rides where the full Perfetto would be too warm and addressing a wider range of conditions with additional layering versatility.
Like the Fawesome, the Perfetto Vest is packable, so you can use it for chilly descents without overheating on the climb. Castelli recommends it in temperatures ranging from 50 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, but the layering possibilities are only limited by our daydream imaginations, so this number can drop easily into the 30s. (And no, we're not embarrassed to admit that we waste time at our desks daydreaming about layering. Well, not that embarrassed.) The full-length YKK Vislon zip boasts a wind guard across the entirety of its span, and the tall collar extends the Windstopper to cover your neck. Reflective elements at the sleeve holes and hem help keep you visible in low-light conditions.
You. You. Perfetto is really good when it's. A little bit warmer it's a thinner and breathable and it's really good when. It's like 15 to 20 degrees it's way more. Easy to get in your pocket or take it. Off. For you know a racing mode and your. Heart rate is really high or you're on a climb in the gaba is to still warm but. The new version perfecto it's a which is. Really a little bit thinner it's just warm it's nice it's really slim fit really bridge to the back so you all. Your body heat goes out pretty quick. Pretty quick to protect our stick to your pocket quite easily. Cerrado york can be really happy I'm proud to run with caselli equipment.

This simple, straightforward MTB jersey doesn't try to do anything distracting or over-the-top, leaving you room to focus on the ride ahead, and the views from the top. The Skyline's breathable main fabric and mesh back work together to keep you dry and cool as you sweat it out on labyrinthine switchbacks, and it comes with a clean fit that will move with you on long, technical descents without feeling too baggy or loose.
Castelli Tabula Rasa Full-Zip Jersey - Men's
Castelli's designers found just the right blend between the classic Aero Race Jersey and everyday comfort with the Tabula Rasa Full-Zip Jersey. This top offers a little more room than the Aero staple, but with similar construction, so you can still slice through the wind on your weekend group ride. The jersey is crafted with ProSecco Micromesh at its core to keep you dry and let your skin breathe, and Velocity Rev2 at the sleeves that keep the fit close to the body with raw-cut hems for a boost in aerodynamics. The simplified seaming allows Castelli's designers to have total flexibility in the graphics department, adding creative graphics that elevate the kit well beyond the classics. It features the same zipper construction that you'll find on Castelli's professional kits, and is finished off with a drop-tail hem and deep pockets for keeping your essentials close at hand.
