The GR5's sole is made with sticky rubber from Michelin, with a lugged pattern at the toe for extra traction off the bike. MSRP: $100 USD.
The AM5 has the same profile and lace-up design as the GR5, but with an SPD compatible sole. Not a fan of the yellow laces? A spare black set are included in the box. MSRP: $100 USD.
Dakine's New Apparel
Dakine's headquarters are in Hood River, Oregon, so they're no strangers to rainy weather. Their new rain jacket has a waterproof rating of 20,000mm/gm2, and will retail for $210 when it hits stores in February.
The Thrillium pant ($160) is made from a 4-way stretch Schoeller fabric, with perforated panels in the crotch and waist area to help keep air flowing. It's aimed at gravity riders, with stretchy room to fit knee pads, like Dakine's new Mayhem hardshell pads ($100), underneath.
