Eurobike: Clothing roundup


Expresso jacket, developed with Gore, is made from Windstopper X-panther stretch fabric should offer a good fit and flexibility on the bike

Interestingly, two zips allow a looser or closer fit, allowing for extra layers underneath

Zipp wheels use dimples for aerodynamics – a fact not lost on Castelli who have used the concept on this jersey and skinsuits

The Eschler jacket is a thermal jersey designed for cool conditions when riding hard. It’s not a windproof jacket, but designed to keep just worst of the elements when riding hard


Continuing their evolution (or is that devolution?) into traditional water carrying bottles, is the Podium Bottle. Unlike the flip-up/flip-down design of the now demoted Classic bottle, the Podium employs a simpler twist mechanism. Two sizes, 620 and 710ml, and three colours will be available.

Hydration specialist Camelbak releases latest generation bottle

The Bite Valve promises no leaking through a one-way design


Endura’s Stealth jacket

Endura’s new (and receiver of a Eurobike gong) Stealth soft shell jacket makes use of ultrasonic welding to seamlessly allow the use of different materials – soft shell fabric combines with stretchier Entrant fabric on the collar, under the arms and down the side for a better fit. We tried one on and it’s a close fitting garment but articulation is good – we’ll get one into test soon.


Montane are entering the bike market, with these extremely portable jackets

Lighter than an innertube – no excuses for getting caught in the rain without a waterproof now


Sugoi’s stand was huge, and the number of new products they showed us just bewildering. So, here’s just a few items that raised our interest and we’ll revisit for an in-depth look at the entire range sometime in the future.

The retro styled Wallaroo Classic jersey made from 100% Australian wool

The Zap jacket offers 360 degrees of visibilty

With understated styling and a range of designs…
