Day two started out with an array of smiling faces. Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition put on an autograph signing at the ladies lounge with Rebecca Rusch, Katie Holden, Leigh Donovan, Kelli Emmett, Ally Stacher, Elle Anderson and Team Tibco.

We can already hear rejoicing from the streets - after being bought out by Sugoi 18 months ago, apparel brand Sombrio are set for re-entry into the market. The transitional time was used to parse down the line to include pieces that would exemplify their direction and look and will be built upon as they regain their momentum. The popular baseball style Drifter Jersey returns with some subtle new colours that are intended to be paired with the bright pop of the new freeride V'Al shorts. On the right is the Tyvekia jersey.

The Cascadia jersey has a Pacific North West twist on the Hawaiian style shirt, a crowd favourite, the Silhouette Flannel shirt and the new Slice and Dice jersey.

Jelly Belly Sport Beans are keeping things fruity with two new flavours being released - Green Apple and Sour Pear.

Giro worked closely with Mips to be able to adopt the technology for their helmet line moving into 2015. Mips is a multi directional impact system that sits on the inside of the helmet in the form of a slip plane. When an impact occurs, the slip plane moves inside the helmet which in turn diffuses impact. The Feather will now be available with or without Mips for $95 and $75 respectively. The La DND glove get's a whack of new colours and the Manta MTB shoe will be available in this glowing red colourway while the Terradura get's a subdued white and green combo. The colour theme rolls into the Xena gloves, to keep your look tied in.

We were interested to see the new Ride Halter Bib short which was designed for comfort along with the intention of making things a little easier to manage when nature calls. The designer of the Giro women's line is actually a former Levi's employee and the smart casual style shows in the range. Top right is the CA Ride Overshort 2.0, the Ride LT Jersey and the cool looking retro styled Wind Bomber ride jacket in legion blue.

Bolle have released a new women's casual line which includes the Greta pictured here, get yourself Italian made shades for a tidy sum of $90 USD. The Sixth Sense is the top of the line sports glass which offers a polarized shatter resistant lens that is interchangeable and malleable temple arms. The Sixth Sense retails for $199 USD.

Luca Shaw spent the 2014 season taking names and blazing trail, we look forward to seeing what this young gun has in store for 2015.

Chrome Industries have produced this women's specific Pasha ride hoody which is available in a cotton and full merino version. The Pasha has longer sleeves with thumb loops, a rear stash pocket and is longer in the back to keep you covered when commuting. The Pasha retails for $100 USD or $180 USD. The gravel bag is big enough to hold a 40, so we think a bottle of wine would do just fine in this little bag of fun.

Terry are celebrating their 30 year anniversary and have re-released their extremely popular do-it-all Butterfly saddle in it's original pattern, which consists of butterflies of course...



Interbike 2014

Fly Racing are beyond excited to enter into the female market next year. Their line is kicking off with the Lilly short and Jersey and the Action jersey. The line is intended to be feminine yet functional and will be available in January of 2015.

Care for a free Swiftwick logo tattoo in return for a pair of socks? Yep, that's what's happening here... real tattoo's. For real. For socks.



Obviously we re a fan of all things pink around here and this Canyon Spectral AL that was done up in Ergon s new Neon Edition Bikini Pink SME3 Pro saddle and GE1 grips was eye catching. The pink will be available on Ergon s SME3 Pro and SME3 Pro Carbon seats as well as GE1 and GE1 Slim grips. Check em out.

Pink much? This Canyon Spectral AL was all did up in Ergon's new Neon Edition Bikini Pink SME3 Pro saddle and GE1 grips. Eye catching to say the least. The pink will be available on Ergon's SME3 Pro and SME3 Pro Carbon seats as well as GE1 and GE1 Slim grips.



Stay tuned for Day 3's findings soon.

 That bikini pink Canyon still looks more masculine than the new Nomad Carbon...

 The feminine part of mans psyche, the anima, can be very strong and even possess a man. The less a man is aware of it, the more power she has over him. Ironically the more a man engages into "masculine" archetype kind of activities, be it body building, buying large or fast cars, FB GoPro run or Strava KOM posting the more he gets entangled by her. You may want to notice that men do those things to appear to other males to a much greater extent than they do it as a mean of attracting women, even though they believe and swear by it that they do the latter. Even more ironically, although anima is extremely strong in homosexual men, their hidden, subconscious shadow side is very masculine, hence many get surprised when insulting a gay person, that the guy can kick their arses real bad.

Therefore it is a very good strategy from SC side to make such graphics, as Nomad is a treat of toys&gadgets loving big boys, and such behaviour is very feminine.

 @ WAKIdesigns
FB GoPro run and Strava KOM postings are not masculine, they're done by people who are in need of attention
your postings are like FB GoPro runs to me .... so shitty

 I've heard of something similar about collecting guns and their accessories being akin to collecting barbie dolls and accessories. Can't wait for my new parts to arrive and make my bike look pretty.

 @Wakidesigns So, you're saying because I'm gay, I can kick a straight guys butt? Good to know. tup My anima is pretty high.

 Interesting to see how much pink is being integrated into the gender-neutral products (grips, saddles, stickers, etc), and it's kind of fun to see more color options not just for women, but for anyone.

Now, I'm adamantly against the marketing cliche known as 'shrink it and pink it', but remember... It is just a color. What we choose to do while wearing that color is what defines us, not the hue we rock while kicking ass. Wink

 Oh just wait until you get blessed with a sweet baby girl, you'll dress her in blue one day while she is still very small - "what's his name" will drive you nuts. Accordingly with pink and a boy. Ehhh where are those times when holy Mary was depocted in blue and Jesus or kings dressed red and pink...

 It's a good thing I'm not ever having a sweet baby girl (or boy) then, eh? Wink

 Fullbug, yea kind of. It is just as annoying as any other behavior making you lose faith in humanity. That bit is that people give you the vibe as if you try to fool them by dressing your kid not accordingly to the "scheme". Ironicaly enough, I had such situation today - how dare I confuse public by giving my daughter a dark blue sweater and hiding her long hair behind the collar (so it doesn't get caught by branches)...
ambatt - no questions asked, no lies heard, no issues touched...

 I did the reverse with our son. We let his hair grow out long and he has mommy's pretty hazel eyes. I would always get "she's so pretty..". Just reply back "thank you! I think so, too." It's all good. They're gifts, waki. Our gifts. She's your hope for humanity, yes?
Ofcourse, she is. You're the last guy on this site that I would think would be affected by schemes and stereotypes.

 The Fly shorts are sweeeeeeet!! Definitely trying on a pair of those. Smile Not a fan of the pink top that goes with it though... I hope manufacturers get the hint that women don't want full on pink everything! Bits of it are great, just not everywhere!

 Dear bike companies....please stop making womans gear in fancy prints and pastel colors....I can't get any of this stuff for my wife.

 and here i thought we'd moved past using pink in women's clothing. i like the fly racing designs, but i wont be purchasing if pink is the only option. too bad because the shorts look kind of cool.

 Giro new color for the Terraduro won't make it a good shoe, it's still the worst piece of footwear I have ever bought. The first pair lasted 2rides then the buckle snapped, got them swapped for a new pair, Second pair lasted for 2 days at the Trans Savoie then both shoes had completely dissenter grated. So no more Giro shoes I'll stick to FiveTen from now on

 Disintegrated, for future use. The shoes was made of parts which were integrated, and now they are no longer; they have disintegrated.

 So, by "subtle new colours", do you mean pink and turquoise blue?? I used to buy Sombrio because they didn't have those colours. Now, they just look like every other line of women's bike wear. Way to go, Sugoi. :-(

 The colors are whatever, in my opinion... It's that god awful shape that's killing me -- what the hell is going on with the short, boxy look?! Do women not have long torsos? I'm praying it's just the mannequin giving those jerseys that look, but by the sleeve/torso ratio on that hideous pink one, mooning the wildlife may be a problem.

 Thats exactly what we have been trying to create... A collection thats made for women but not too girly! MTB specific, not quite for DH but tough enough for long days on the saddle.

 I love the trade off, tattoo for a pair of socks. The tattoo is probably retail $50 and the socks $10.
