The cycling season is in full swing and we are excited to share some of the new products we have been testing and falling in love with this winter.
Scott came back from the Boulder Roubaix bubbling about a hydration sample he received mid race from Dr. Allen Lim himself. Skratch Labs has made a huge splash in the cycling world – taking exercise drinks to an unprecedented level and we have been incredibly impressed with all of their products. We take pride in using everything we sell from the bicycles down to the nutritionals we offer. Skratch Labs exercise drink mix has been flying off our shelves ever since we started stocking it. We just got a new round in and we encourage you all to try it. It’s honestly the best in the industry. Check out Scott's blog about the Boulder Roubaix here!
We are also super pleased with the new spring jerseys from
Rapha this season; both the regular lightweight and the super lightweight offer
the expected Rapha quality, comfort, and performance. We are also carrying their
Pro Team Base Layers, which are awesome for the competitive rider and for the
summer heat. We suggest sizing up though, as their competitive cut is tighter
than their jerseys, unless you are looking for a true body fit. Keep an eye out for Studio Velo riders headed to Eastern Sierra's at the end of this month - no doubt they will be wearing some of the best from Rapha's spring collection while riding through Death Valley. See more about our Eastern Sierra adventure here!
Finally, just in, Barfly is flying hot off our shelves and
for good reason. This simple seeming attachment device for your Garmin will
change your vision on the bike. Locally made and super lightweight the Barfly is an obvious addition for any Garmin users. Available online!
Mavic helmets are something else we have been awaiting this
winter. Simply put, Mavic makes an incredibly light and comfortable helmet
without compromising your protection. Just ask Chris Reed, our head mechanic and Studio Velo partner, he always rides in his Mavic and loves it.
