NEW – The Radiator Tee & A Look Inside Polartec

by Nicholas Haig-Arack June 07, 2016

The Radiator Tee is our technologically advanced take on the classic warm weather t-shirt. Polartec® developed the PowerDry® to have the look and hand of cotton, but perform better than the typical polyester jersey to keep you cool and comfortable. The Radiator Tee also incorporates Polartec’s new, innovative, Delta™ fabric, developed for optimum cooling, moisture wicking, and on-trail durability. We expertly crafted these high-performance tees for big mountain riding but they’re so comfortable that you won’t want to take them off.


  • Athletic cut and fit for comfortable all day riding and off bike activities  
  • Subtle reflective hit on the sleeve for added vis
  • Dropped tail for added coverage when in the saddle



Fabric Details:

Polartec Power Dry (83% Poly, 17% lycra)

New! Polartec® Delta Fabric (51% Poly 45% Tencell 4% Spandex)

Polartec® Delta is a permanent mechanical wicking fabric that evolves how athletes and adventurers dress for performance in warmer climates. Inspired by the design of car radiators, the new fabric is constructed of an optimal base layer that provides wicking capabilities, reduces skin cling, regulates drying and is highly breathable without any chemical treatments.

Add Beauty: Silca at 100
Add Beauty: Silca at 100

by Nicholas Haig-Arack July 18, 2017

This year SILCA is celebrating a century of bicycling innovation. This legendary company was the first to include pressure gauges on floorpumps, the first to produce a usable portable pump, and the first to produce a valve-controlled CO2 inflator; all necessities that we now take for granted. SILCA was run by the Sacchi family in Milan until it was sold in 2013 to the former technical director for Zipp Speed Weaponry, Joshua Poertner. SILCA is now based in Indianapolis and has carved out a niche for itself by manufacturing precision-engineered, heritage-grade pumps and tools that walk the line between utilitarian duty and aesthetic beauty. We recently caught up with Josh to talk about cycling, art, and everything in between.

The Outsiders’ Guide to Mountain Biking British Columbia

by Lani Bruntz July 07, 2017

With an opening in our Push to Start Summer Tour schedule, we opted to “take the long way around” for a detour de British Columbia on our way to Sun Valley, Idaho. On a whim we fled north from Seattle, first stopping in Bellingham to soak up as much lush Washington terrain as possible. We roughly sketched out what our next week might hold – entering the mecca via Vancouver, heading north to Pemberton, then working our way east and south to depart the country via Rossland. We let our trip unfold hour by hour, trying to make time to ride in all the spots we’ve read and seen so much about.
