RAIN ESSENTIALS HJUL x NEW BALANCE

Toni has sent me a great news that his brand HJUL Outerwear has collaborated with New Balance for a new gear: Rain Essentials. The package includes 600C New Balance shoes for urban cycling, Raincoat and Sackpack made with DuPont™ Tyvek® fabric laminated with PU and breathable/waterproof film. Tyvek is an ecofriendly fabric used mainly for packaging as it is very light and durable. It is water-resistant but we laminated it to make this waterproof effect even better. Both, raincoat and sackpack has an outer pocket that we can turn inside out and pack them into a small bag. There are several detail that are very convenient for commuting use: Raincoat has the ventilation mesh on the back and ventilation eyelets under the armpit; Sackpack has two departments inside, in case you want to separate your wet from dry clothes. The customized pattern the you'll find on items is made especially for this collaboration with idea to bring flowers to your rainy day ride.

Miguel's Stinner Gravel Bike

We've been discussing with Miguel about this bike for months, but when we saw it in the flesh, our heart still skipped a beat. First his choice of pink logo over purple base. Then his choice of components for the purpose. We cannot help but take it out for a photo shoot although we could have loved to ride it too.
