With a new, more contoured pattern design, the 2011 Assos climaJet Breaker is made to become more lightweight and compact than ever before. As the name implies, the climaJet is a top-quality cycling-specific wind and rain breaker suited for training or racing in changing weather conditions.

Another innovation to the climaJet is the fabric design made more resistant to wear and tear. Upon contact with water, the active membrane of the fabric enlarges and offers improved rain protection when necessary. On the sides, air vents provide efficient cooling and evaporation.

Through the Assos Easy Entry System construction, the zipper closing of the 2011 Assos climaJet Breaker is made faster and more secure. The jacket also features a padded neck line for more comfort and reflective stripes in the back for better visibility.

Levi’s is conquering the cycling world by launching a commuter line this year. First off is the classic 511® Skinny Commuter jean developed with proprietary nanopsphere treatment that keeps it stain-free. The denim fabric used is lightweight and stretchy. The holster is made more durable by a subtle detail.

Integrated into the denim is a zippered stash pocket and a u-lock holster complete with campione del monde stripes. Also, the jeans are gusseted to avoid crotch blowout while a higher-cut back hides the plumber’s crack. For better visibility, 3M-lining is added on the inner cuff.

Aside from the jeans, the 2011 Levi’s Cycling Apparel features a cycling jacket. Along with the same nanopsphere treatment, the Trucker jacket is made more cycling-specific by the classic silhouette’s subtle details and the sleeves’ reinforced accordion design. Breathability is enhanced by the vents across the back.

Actor Robin Williams recently shared his experience with the ladies of “The View” regarding his recent brush with the police while cruising on his bike in New York City.

According to Williams, he was on the road dressed as a “terrorist” or a “crack dealer” when he made a quick detour up to the sidewalk on his bike. The comedian swore that at the time, there was nobody looking and that the coast was clear.

He was surprised when he got pulled over by the cops.

The authorities at first did not recognize the Oscar Award winning actor but when the police did recognize him, he was let off with a warning.

The View host Elisabeth Hasselbeck exclaimed “I got hit by a bike on a sidewalk!” to which Williams quickly replied “Well, it’s the law because of her,” much to the laughter of the audience and the hosts….

Stylish and unique, the 2011 DZR Strasse riding shoe combines a classic herringbone fabric and full grain leather. What gives the shoe a beautiful look is the mix of SPD compatible midsole and a vulcanized rubber outsole.

Compared more urban orientated shoes, traditional riding shoes offer more comfort to commuters due to loss of power transfer to the pedals. This is why the sole’s flex point of DZR is moved further back towards the rear, resulting in a natural walking gait.

This means that the 2011 DZR Strasse Riding Shoe can efficiently move with the rider’s feet. Throughout the pedal stroke, more power is delivered to the pedals on the bike but it cannot outwit more race performance oriented shoes. On the other hand, the DZR Strasse style is top-notch.
