8 Good Bike Apparel & Accessories for Man
Louis Garneau Cb Carbon Lazer Bib Shorts - Men's
Garneau analyzed every angle of bib short construction when designing its CB Carbon Lazer Bib Shorts, and the ambitious blend of fabrics it settled on includes everything from Lycra to carbon. Fabric alone certainly can't make a tough workout feel easy, but when the right materials are used and the cut is supportive, the kit you're wearing can make a difference. Constructing kit that works with you throughout a ride was a key focus with the CB Carbon Lazer, and it shows.
The short takes its name from the CB Carbon + Lazer main body fabric, a material composed of nylon, Lycra, and carbon fibers finished with a coldblack coating to help the fabric reflect, rather than absorb, UV rays. These materials feature heavily in the rest of the short's lightweight panels, with nylon adding durability and Lycra allowing the short to maintain its supportive, contoured shape as you stand up on a climb then shift into your drops to tuck into a descent. The fabric blends are stretchy and breathable, and each panel of the shorts is joined together with flatlock seaming that will move with you rather than create irritating chafing against your skin. Two types of lightweight, breathable mesh are used to construct the bib straps, which disappear underneath jerseys and stay in place as you move around without pinching or chafing.
Garneau lines the CB Carbon Lazer with its 4 Motion chamois, which features responsive foam arranged strategically to provide support where you need it without inhibiting your range of motion in the saddle. As the CB Carbon Lazer is at the high end of Garneau's bib short line, Garneau includes extra touches like a drop hem in back to make nature breaks on long rides more convenient, and sleek, laser-cut leg hems that lie flat and stay in place without the need for elastic or irritating grippers.
Pearl Izumi Elite Escape AmFib Cycling Bib Tight - Men's
You need some real deal cycling gear if you have any hope of remaining motivated to ride during the coldest winter months. Pearl Izumi made the ultra-toasty AmFib Men's Cycling Bib Tights that are designed to fit, wick, and breathe well keeping you warm and comfortable and never regretting your clothing choice. The Amfib bib tights have all the warmth you need to turn frigid training rides into enjoyable outdoor outings.
The AmFib bibs are the warmest tights on offer from Pearl and is made from a blend of Pearl's Elite AmFib softshell and Elite Thermal Fleece fabrics. Thermal Fleece, which makes up the back panel construction, handles thermo-regulation and moisture wicking, while the Amfib softshell is incorporated in key areas to keep out precipitation and wind. The two fabrics coordinate effectively they will be your go-to tights in the coldest conditions.
Sub-freezing riding conditions are hard enough that we don't want any additional unnecessary discomforts, so thankfully Pearl Izumi integrates its Elite Escape 1:1 chamois into the AmFib. The chamois uses variable density padding and is pre-shaped to enhance blood flow. Its floating top-sheet reduces friction and conforms to your shape as it pulls moisture away from your skin.
While a comfortable chamois is a necessity for any long rides, nothing guarantees comfort like a precise fit. To ensure this, Pearl designed the cut to allow full range of motion while cycling. The lower leg follows a contoured shape that terminates with an ankle zipper for easy on and off with thick, winter socks. Adding to the cold weather rising bliss is the breathable, but warming, Transfer fabric on the upper and raw cut bib straps. Pearl also added BioViz reflective elements for low-light visibility and a BioViz Screaming color option for added daylight visibility.

Capo Signature Leggero Jersey - Men's
The Capo Men's Signature Leggero Jersey is the epitome of a race-inspired training kit, able to shoulder the burden of long base miles and approach the start line with equal ease. It's constructed from Capo's Super Leggero fabric, a lightweight, moisture-wicking microfiber with a second-skin fit that eliminates the excess material and transitional ridges that are a leading cause of drag. The fabric is then treated with coldblack® technology to minimize heat build-up and increase UV protection during sunny rides in blistering temperatures.
To give the jersey versatility in a variety of summer conditions, the underarms are made out of ventilated Eyelet Mesh microfiber panels that offer quick moisture transfer during hot climbs. Expect the jersey to fit slim, with a silhouette that will be right at home in your next race or while styling on a high-intensity group ride, with an elastic along the bottom hem of the jersey keeping the waist securely in place.
Capo includes three rear pockets for storing your ride essentials, as well as reflective inserts on the pockets to increase your visibility to other road users. The full-length, lockable zipper gives ample freedom to make temperature adjustments should you need a little extra cooling during hard efforts.
