Art of Endurance is yet another Australian kit brand with unique designs to offer women. I mean, I’m starting to get jealous I don’t live in Australia. I feel like everyone there is the most well-dressed cyclist on the planet. Art of Endurance can help you stand out even more.

I had the chance to ride in the Tesselate kit for a few months. It’s always exciting to roll up to a group ride and show off a kit.

The Domestique Critique: Pink is the New Pink

A shock of color in a comfortable shoe.

A color does not have a gender, so I’m ambivalent about people’s feelings toward pink. You can vilify it, embrace it, flash it, hide it, wear it as a badge of honor, or reject it completely. I will simply admit that it looks badass as a cycling shoe. Continue reading
