Lizard Skins Aramus Classic Gloves
Classic styling meets modern comfort in these sheepskin gloves from bar-tape experts Lizard Skins. On the surface, the Aramus Classic looks straight out of a black-and-white photo of Eddy Merckx summiting the Tourmalet. But flipping over this stylish glove reveals the modern comforts of gel padding. Vents on the back and palm offer updated levels of breathability, so you can confidently reach for these gloves on warm days. When your ride comes to an end, adjustable leather straps and finger pull-tabs make removal a breeze. Available in brown, white and black, and in six sizes, there’s a pair that will perfectly fit your style. $40; lizardskins.com.
Pearl Isumi PRO Bib Short
Pearl Izumi’s PRO bib short is quickly becoming a favorite here at the Peloton Service Course. A member of the top-shelf PRO line, these bibs feature just seven panels made from Italian PRO Transfer fabric for minimal seams and maximum comfort. Soft to the touch, these bibs are supportive and contour well, without feeling restrictive. And the laser-cut bib straps are equally comfortable. Pearl Izumi’s PRO Escape 1:1 chamois perfectly complements the supportive fit of the bibs. And Silicone grippers at the end of the legs are hardly noticeable, but keep the bibs firmly in place—say goodbye to bunching bibs and hello to razor-sharp tan lines. We’re fans of the black-stripe version—it looks like a solid color from a distance but adds a little bit of life to the rest of your jerseys. $200; pearlizumi.com.
