by Brian Mullin on September 11, 2017

Club Ride Apparel has a slew of new items coming out this fall, including the extremely comfortable Infinity Hoody and the long sleeved Tempo Jersey that’s perfect for cooler weather. Although not new, the Commander shorts are tough, durable and utilize a WR finish.

Infinity Hoody

The Infinity Hoody is this seasons must have, do it all, cycling mid-weight performance hoody. This Hoody is designed with a super-tech brushed back, mid-weight, stretch poly fabric that manages temperature and assures you look great on the bike or off. Never run out of storage space with two rear drop-in pockets and front hand pockets.

First Impressions => This is a uber-comfy hoody that has an excellent fit, that isn’t too loose or tight, making it perfect for wearing on a bike ride and walking around town. The long front zipper allows many comfort, warmth and ventilation settings to tune things to the user’s requirements. The front pockets are huge, and my giant iPhone 7 Plus fit comfortably into them with room to spare. The deep rear vertically oriented pockets sit right behind you hip bone making them ideal to quickly grab items.  The outside of the jacket has a tighter weave for wind resistance, while the inside has a soft brushed finish for a nice to the skin feel. The hood fits perfectly over your head without feeling baggy or flopping over your brow, and the knit cuffs are simple and do their job admirably without binding.

Commander Shorts

This is not your average cargo short. The Commander has all the functionality you need from a cargo short while providing all the technical aspects of robust riding short. Built with medium weight double weave fabric, the Commander is light enough for comfort, yet can withstand the most aggressive terrain. The lay flat pockets and belt loops allow you to transition seamlessly from the bike to everyday life.

First Impressions => The durable shorts are made with a WR finish which makes a sort crinkling noise sometimes when you’re moving. Although there isn’t much stretch in the material, they’re reasonably comfortable, and the seamless crotch gusset offers excellent maneuverability and fit. For fitting purposes, they have a functional waistband adjustment system with a Velcro closure on each side to alter the circumference. The front has a robust snap closure with decently long zipper. The WR finish provides water and dirt resistance and significantly adds durability to the shorts. They have two large hand pockets, two cargo pockets on the thighs and one zippered pocket. The Commander shorts don’t look like a set of baggy bike shorts and instead seem like a regular pair of cargo pants, albeit ones with high functional materials and a slew of biking features.

Tempo Jersey

We designed a technical, wicking, quick dry, breathable knit base layer to help keep you warm and dry when your tempo is high. Drop your goods into the back, low profile, storage pockets and open up the chest half zipper and away you go. We added extra venting for high activity with mesh panels under the arm and on the back.

Thoughts => Our temps dropped to the low 50’s so I have been using the Tempo Jersey on a bunch of rides. The front half-zip feature is delightful and helps regulate temperature, and when zipped up tight the collar isn’t binding. It’s comfortable and stretchy, making it ideal to pull over a light, thin layer or be used by itself.  The underarm and upper back mesh sections do a great job with ventilation, and overall the material does an excellent job of wicking and breathing.
