We are huge fans of Tenspeed Hero here at PDF. Their ability to combine French New Wave aesthetic with innovative designs for cycling apparel is completely revolutionary. The Chicago brand is also committed to the growth of women’s cycling, supporting their own women’s racing team. When we got an email announcing their would be a resort collection for 2015 we couldn’t wait to see what they had in store. TSH sent us the sherbet jersey and blue (yes, BLUE!) bibs from the new collection.
Inspired by summer time ice-cream cones, the Sherbet Jersey is the perfect solution to gray winter days. The gradients of pastels are broken up by graphic black and white stripes reminiscent of the French Riviera. The lightweight fabric and slim cut make it perfect for computrainer classes this winter and outside adventures come warm weather. The hem also has no slip grippers to keep your jersey in place which has the added bonus of protecting your lower back from exposure if you prefer wearing shorts over bibs. It’s impossible not to feel happy while wearing this jersey!

Royal Blue was a big color for Resort 2015 collections from Alexander Wang to Proenza Schouler so we were thrilled to see TSH was on top of the trend with their Blue Team Bibs. Standing out in a sea of black, the fabric is durable and just stretchy enough to give you full motion on the bike while providing compression for long hard rides. The straps are made with titanium mesh which won’t become loose with wear and are still soft against skin. Because they are not super stretchy, we recommend sizing up.

No TSH kit would be complete without a colorful pair of socks! The resort 2015 socks embody Fauvist sunsets and skies. They remind us of laying on our backs in the summertime and staring up at the passing clouds. The 6 inch cuffs are the perfect length for tall sock lovers, but might feel a little high for cyclists accustomed to ankle socks. We think the celeste + stripes color wave pairs best with the sherbet jersey.
Figure out your size using Tenspeed Hero's "Real World Fit Guide". The guide is a work in progress, but recognizes that women come in all different shapes and sizes and have different preferences when it comes to fit.
