BMC unveils the 2011 PR01 Pure for the women’s line. Made with a carbon fiber frame, its geometry did not deviate much from the men’s model, however, there are a few changes to suit women cyclists like Shimano 105 short-reach brake levers, Scor 18k handlebar and saddle.

The 2011 PR01 Pure uses the BMC Integrated Skeleton concept or ISC. The thought behind this specific design is to evenly distribute the impact forces through strategically placed reinforcements on the nodes and top tubes of the skeletal frame.

BMC also features a tapered headtube and the angle lock clamping system on the Pure. Other details include a BMC SE48 SL TP fork, Alex rims and Continental Ultra Race tires. The 2011 BMC PR01 Pure retails for $2400.

Campagnolo‘s product range includes cycling apparel and its latest addition is the L118 Women’s Racing Jersey. The long-sleeved jersey provides the needed warmth and full coverage for women cyclists, especially during the winter months. Its fabric is made with a hollow-core material called “Alaska” that provides heat control. This also meant less sweat gathers because the fabric promotes overall dryness.

The L118 has shaped sleeves and fits to the body but is extremely breathable and non-restrictive. Anti-bacterial in a sense that the Alaska fabric guarantees no bacteria from moisture.

There are two back pockets to house valuables, a silicone gripper with the reflective Campagnolo logo and red detailing on the sides. The L118 comes in two colors and with sizes from XS to XL.
