Get Your Orders in for the Team Cycling Jacket


Hey Folks!

A couple weeks ago I had Mt. Borah send us their jacket samples.  Both their thermal jacket and their lightweight wind jacket.  In the end, we decided we liked both of the options they had to offer, although it's doubtful we're going to do a thermal jacket until ski season (it will work as a good training jacket for cold nights).

In terms of a design, I thought I'd mix things up a little bit and go with the same design I used for the running singlets.  

Unfortunately, Mt. Borah doesn't have the capacity to render this jacket so you can see what it will look like on a person, but you can kind of get the idea by looking at the above picture.  The red/orange color is the same as the red/orange on the Landgraf hat, and the coloring on our team kits.  Trust me when I tell you that this is going to be an AWESOME compliment to the accessories we already have.

Look, when it comes right down to it, nobody cares more than me about having people in CyclovaXC gear looking good!  What I WANT is to see us on the cover of more magazines like Birch Scroll!  I'm psyched about this jacket honestly, and when we see them in person, you'll realize why.

This jacket is more of a wind jacket, and I think it will work great both for biking and skiing.  If there are those of you who would like to represent CyclovaXC in either of those sports, but want something a little more subdued than our regular kits, then this is for you.  I also think this will make a great warm-up style jacket for running events (would be a great thing to show up in at Grandma's marathon).

I would also like to call your attention to the left sleeve.  You can't really see it on the above image, but right near the cuff is the phrase "Train Like Landgraf!" to inspire you while you're hunched over on your bicycle (or whatever you're doing).

The sizing kit for this stuff will be in the shop in the next week or so (Mt. Borah has it on back order again).  But I'd guess this will fit you about like the vest.  You could almost use this jacket as a rain jacket, but it has a highly breathable back, so it would only keep your chest dry (I think that's where most of the rain would hit you anyway...maybe not).  The price is $100.

Oh, and I just received word that the running stuff is in the mail, so if you ordered that, you should be able to pick it up soon!

Lastly, for those of you doing the Strada this weekend, here's a map I pieced together (click to enlarge):
