Bontrager Adventure Series Clothing – GR2 Shoes: Getting Rolling

If you are not a big fan of Lycra or you tend toward more casual options, then technical clothing like this Adventure line from Bontrager falls into the gap between hucking and crits.

Spring Clothing Round-Up: Castelli

It was a sweaty, moist day in the saddle and the breath-ability of the shorts worked in my favor, never feeling swampy.

Sportful Winter Gear: Winter Wear Review

Here in the Midwest, having the right gear for winter cycling is the difference between truly enjoying rides and simply suffering through them. And while some cyclists simply hide indoors when the temps take a dive, I enjoy the fresh face snow and ice add to my familiar routes. As such, I’m always on the lookout for gear that makes my winter cycling adventures more enjoyable.

GORE Winter Clothing: Winter Wear Review Take 2

I would suggest this as a very good but not terribly exceptional outer shell…. I would have expected a much nicer pad in the bibs, and a structure that didn’t put a seam in an area where the body articulates during pedaling.
