Pearl Izumi Elite LTD Climbers Jersey

$130 Con­structed with Pearl Izumi’s ul­tra-light Di­rect-vent mesh f abric, t he Elite LTD Climbers Jersey is ideal for hard rid­ing in hot con­di­tions. Pearl Izumi’s unique fab­ric is par­tic­u­larly ef­fec­tive dur­ing climb­ing when there is lit­tle phys­i­cal ven­ti­la­tion due to the slower speeds. For im­proved com­fort in these chal­leng ing con­di­tions Pearl Izumi has also added a full-length ven­ti­lat­ing zipper. Other no­table fea­tures in­clude two back pock­ets, an elas­ti­cized grip­per on the back of the jersey to pre­vent un­wanted ride-up as well as an im­proved size curve for bet­ter fit.

Spe­cial­ized SL Pro Bib Short

$210 The sleek Spe­cial­ized SL Pro Bib Short de­liv­ers ex­cep­tional com­fort for both road and off-road rid­ing. Spe­cial­ized uses Va­por­rize fab­rics that pro­vide ex­cel­lent mois­ture man­age­ment and help keep riders cool and com­fort­able through a broad range of weather con­di­tions. The highly ar­tic­u­lated pat­tern­ing fur­ther en­sures on­the-bike com­fort by min­i­miz­ing fab­ric bunch­ing. Spe­cial­ized’s min­i­mal­ist Body Ge­om­e­try SL Pro Chamois pro­vides riders with a sur­pris­ing level of com­fort with­out any un­nec­es­sary bulk. To keep the leg pan­els (10" in­seam in a medium) from rid­ing up, Spe­cial­ized specs a grippy sil­i­cone in­fused cuff. Fi­nally, the ad­di­tion of a 50+ UPF treat­ment en­sures ex­cel­lent pro­tec­tion from the sun’s dam­ag­ing rays.

TPearl Izumi Di­vide Glove

$46 While the Di­vide gloves may look like many other full-fin­ger cy­cling gloves cur­rently on the mar­ket, the Di­vide’s light­weight, breath­able mesh back and durable, syn­thetic leather palm sets it apart from its com­peti­tors. A con­duc­tive syn­thetic leather fin­ger­tip and thumb makes ac­cess­ing the touch­screen of your elec­tron­ics a breeze. The slip-on fit makes the Di­vide easy to take on and off. RY­ING OUT THE TRAILS ON A MOUN­TAIN BIKE CAN ADD TO YOUR WARDROBE AND YOUR SKILLSET. HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED WHEN RID­ING OFF ROAD THIS FALL.

Pearl Izumi Elite Bar­rier Con­vert­ible Jacket

$155 With its highly breath­able wind-and-wa­ter re­sis­tant fab­ric, the Elite Bar­rier Con­vert­ible Jacket is a great piece for cool and windy weather con­di­tions. And if the weather starts to im­prove, riders can easily con­vert the jacket into a vest, which fur­ther adds to this gar­ment’s ver­sa­til­ity. While the jacket fab­ric is sur­pris­ingly breath­able, Pearl Izumi has wisely cho­sen to add rear vents, which fur­ther im­prove com­fort dur­ing hard ef­forts. Two hand warmer pock­ets and one rear pocket pro­vide plenty of stor­age for small essen­tials while the ad­di­tion of care­fully po­si­tioned re­flec­tive trim in­creases safety when rid­ing in low light con­di­tions.

Oak­ley Radar Path with Prizm Trail Lens

$255 For decades Oak­ley has been ac­knowl­edged as a leader in sport-spe­cific op­tics and with the Radar Path and its Prizm Trail lens, the com­pany con­tin­ues to ce­ment its po­si­tion as a fron­trun­ner in the sun­glasses cat­e­gory. Like al­most all Oak­ley eyewear, the Radar Path fea­tures the com­pany’s light­weight yet durable O Mat­ter frame as well as its slip-re­sis­tant Un­ob­ta­nium com­po­nents. Where the Path starts to dif­fer­en­ti­ate it­self from other Oak­ley glasses is with its Prizm Trail-spe­cific lenses. Oak­ley has man­aged to cre­ate a lens that is op­ti­mized for the light and colour con­di­tions riders will en­counter dur­ing trail rid­ing. The re­sult is a set of glasses that pro­vides ex­cep­tional eye pro­tec­tion while at the same time de­liv­er­ing un­ri­valled op­ti­cal clar­ity. This al­lows riders to choose faster lines while avoid­ing speed-rob­bing ob­sta­cles that may have been missed with lesser-qual­ity op­tics.

Lazer Magma Moun­tain Bike Hel­met

$130 The new Lazer Magma com­bines ag­gres­sive good looks with ex­cep­tional pro­tec­tion and ven­ti­la­tion. The hel­met’s unique Ad­vanced Roll­sys Re­ten­tion Sys­tem pro­vides a se­cure fit and al­lows for easy on-the-bike ad­just­ments. For ven­ti­la­tion, Lazer has speced 22 vents that en­sure riders re­main com­fort­able in warm weather or chal­leng­ing ef­forts. Lastly, the built in vi­sor not only of­fers pro­tec­tion from the sun, but also pro­vides some de­fence against lowhang­ing branches. $20 Spe­cial­ized’s Moun­tain Mid Sock is a great choice for the chal­leng­ing con­di­tions en­coun­tered when moun­tain bik­ing. Spe­cial­ized starts with its Va­por­rize merino blended fab­ric that pro­vides ex­cel­lent wick­ing and com­fort. It then con­structs the socks with a light layer of cush­ion­ing as well as a more sup­port­ive sec­tion in the mid-foot arch area. And to en­sure the socks last through many ad­ven­tures, Spe­cial­ized has re­in­forced the heel and toe ar­eas.
