Part of our 30th Anniversary From the Vaults Series
The Memphis Kit takes its inspiration from the Italian Pop Art movement of the 1980’s “the Memphis Group”. This Avant Garde design and architecture collective focused on Postmodern design with a signature bold and colourful geometric style. Over the years many haute couture brands like Dior have been inspired by the style and it’s rumored that David Bowie was a massive collector of their work.
Get out there and stay out there. Start earlier. Go Farther. The RS Century Zap Jersey and Bib Short are loaded with smart design extras to keep you fully self-sustained, even on the longest rides. Additional pockets to carry additional tubes, food and of course a mobile at the ready. Smart Zap visibility keep you seen for early-to-rise starts and last-push evenings.
Our 2017 bike glove collection features an all new articulated patterning design that maps each finger and palm to form the hand’s natural gripping motion. Seams are minimized and placed to mimic the bare hand and reduce bulk, with a rolled fingertip construction and added accommodation around the knuckle. The result is superior grip, dexterity and interface with the bar.
For 2017, we've refined the institution, the RS Pro Bib Short. Cutting edge fabric and design make this our quintessential bib short to ride farther and train harder in blissed-out comfort. Ultra Aero fabric on outer thighs maximize efficiency. Engineered fabric on front panels increase breathability. And the completely updated Formula FX Chamois features 3D cradle technology to reduce pressure and Poron foam under the sit bones for vibrating-damping where you need it most. Available in stores and online now, the RS Pro Bib Short is covered by the 60 Day Comfort Guarantee.
A great trainer regime will jump start your season
People love to hate on the trainer and it's true it can quickly earn its nickname "the paincave". But if you want to get a jump start on your summer race competition - or just your own personal bests for the season - putting the time in now is essential. If that's not a good enough reason, keep in mind that trainer riding is the by far the most efficient way to train on a bike and offers quicker gains than training on the road.
With the holidays just around the corner, we've got great gift ideas that will make every active person on your list smile on Christmas morning. From the tough-as-nails winter rider commited to training 365 days a year, to the every day commuter, smart thermal and water proof gear will keep them riding during the holiday season and well into the new year. Dedicated outdoor runners will benefit from our wide variety of hi-vis thermal options to stay seen on the road and lots of indoor cross training pieces to choose from as well.
September - it's the month-long sweet spot between summer vacations and cozy nights spent under blankets. It's also one of our favourite months for training outdoors. The kids are back in school. Trails are a little quieter. The air is crisp and refreshing, even in the afternoon. But at some point during this magic month, the mornings get noticeably chilly. Now is the time for transitional weather layers - the jackets, hoodies, capris and tops that will keep you moving outside all season long.
We are proud to announce we have been honoured with one of the most prestigious design awards in the cycling industry - a Eurobike Award for 2016. The Zap Thermal Long Sleeve Jersey & Zap Thermal Knicker were selected by an independent jury of industry experts based on a number of criteria including functionality, design quality, and degree of innovation.
