  • I see what you did there

  • Might have worked better with a couple of the promo shots of the new white bibs

  • just for the record, confirming what's been said. rapha core is dead short and PNS too. from my experience i would and maap and pedal*ed

  • anyone wear q36.5?

  • Following the long leg shorts chat I ordered some galibier XL long leg to try alongside my xl endura pro sl long legs. I’d say galibier are thinner which might be nice in summer, less compressing feeling, shorter straps but fine once on bike and equally comfy pad. Also they have the pattern round the leg and up the hips which I didn’t know but don’t mind. The galibier shorts are less than half the price of the endura so I’ll probably buy more of those for commuting and training and keep the endura for races and long rides.

  • This is incredible, I won't hear any different

  • define incredible ?
    i'd like it for myself

  • y not the leopard print?!

    Not sure how I feel about the invention of the gravel specific shirsey.

  • How Do You Do, Fellow Gravel Kids?

  • y not the leopard print?!

    As the owner of leopard print crocs and a leopard aero jersey, I'm all for it but the colour is too far.

  • shirts are fine, on-bike-fit "highly technical hooded jerseys" are not fine and must be stopped.

    I will let the shorts description speak for itself.

    Built to explore, constructed for rougher roads, at home on gravel. Mickaela combine all the comfort and performance of classic padded cycling shorts with a shot of je ne sais quoi and a heavy dose of pionnier spirit. For wild and warmer days and routes that reach the horizon.

  • I'm not sure pioneer spirit is something to aim for...

  • Has anyone looked at the thread title lately?

  • that really is a je ne sais quoi

  • On bike looks way better than mannequin (shorts would be flappy and ride up though?) props for something a bit different anyway.

  • This is rubbish. If Superdry did cycling.

  • These are all just clothes.

  • Damn, you figured it out.

  • That shirt is well cool.

    Speaking of CdC, what is going on with this blokes handlebars!?

  • much aero gravel.

    Also, this mesh jersey concept has pedigree.

  • Just looks like 90% of the blokes I see walking out of the gym... lycra shorts with normal lightweight shorts over the top. Not sure I see the advantage unless "gravel" riding is really just pootling for 20 mins on the horse track in Richmond Park before ending up in a nice bar down by the river or in Le Village de Wimbledon.

  • Yes , some designs are divisive however the quality is excellent.

    Their wolf(sic?) bibs are superb best I've tried , however I would squirm at paying full price for them.

  • thanks - the consensus seems to be that the performance/quality is top-tier. the pinstripe stuff isn't too bad looking. i believe rapha uses a similar fabric (sans silver thread)? kind of working out whether i want to go fully in on q36.5 or follow the crowd to rapha/maap/santini.
