Club Ride Apparel – Interbike 2011

by Brian Mullin on October 3, 2011

Club Ride Apparel had two new items in the men’s line, and a slew of new colors for their jerseys. All of their products use technical performance materials, that have excellent wicking and odor properties, and use stretchy material for the utmost in comfort, and movability. Most of their models utilize a hidden full front zipper, with an overlap flap that closes with snaps, for a nice utilitarian usage. They predominantly use a stretchy lightweight polyester for their products, but they also use a bamboo fabric on a few models. It’s interesting bike apparel, that encompass men’s and women’s jerseys and shorts, that are functional, and have enough fashion to allow you to wear it in a normal environment, with a sort of bowling shirt meets western flair, combined together in a nifty package.

Their latest jersey is the Vibe (shown above), which has a simple and understated look, and comes in a Charcoal, Indigo and Maize color. It uses a lightweight, quick drying and wickable polyester, that has great stretch for moving around on a bike. It has the typical hidden front zipper, which is excellent for ventilation, and has a zipper chest and rear pocket.

Their product suite covers the gamut of looks, features, color schemes and patterns. The Nut Head has a more traditional bike shop design, with a nice set of vented back panels that works great with a hydration pack. The New West (shown above) has some fun plain colors, while the Go West has a very cowboy and western feel to its design, with some fun Pearl snaps added on.

The Drifter utilities a stripe pattern, and the pullover Biff is more like a polo jersey, and uses a combination of fabrics, a polyester on the top, and bamboo on the bottom. The long-sleeved Go Long, works great for sun coverage, and the jacket like Wind Nut helps on the inclement windy days, along with the hoodie Cross Wind.

They added a really neat set of full knickers (22-inch inseam) to their short lineup, and named the Zeal Pant (shown above). The pants uses a blend of durable and stretchy nylon and bamboo fabrics, an easy to use side adjustment system that uses a lockable cam, articulated knees and a protective cuff at the ankle, and comes in Raven and Charcoal colors. The other excellent shorts include the Car-Go Away, Days 2 Short and Half Rack knickers.
