PEdAL ED has just launched a new women's collection for spring/summer, which is their first dedicated entirely to female cyclists.
The gear was made in conjunction with riders all over the world ranging from pros to adventurers, designed in Japan for warm weather riding in comfort and subtle style. The two jerseys are the Hane (€150) and the Kawa Essential (€125). The Hane (shown above) is a lightweight, high-performance jersey with an innovative high stretch and highly breathable fabric, with three big rear pockets for storing essentials. The stripe along the back is said to support the pocket capacity along with ergonomic seams for a proper fit, and it comes in black, white or maroon colours.
The Kawa Essential is made for relaxed rides and training, with PEdAL ED's 'Sensitive' fabric providing a stretchy fit. It's got reflective front and rear logos, and comes in navy, turquoise or red colourways.
The shorts on offer are the Tsuki bibs (€180) and the Shizen regular shorts (€155) and both come with top quality Cytech chamois pads for rear comfort and a four-way stretch fabric. The Tsuki has a back support structure in the straps to support the rider during intense efforts for a more comfortable and stable experience, while decreasing pressure across the shoulders.
The other items in the collection are the Hada merino baselayer (€60), Vesper packable jacket (€108) and Vesper vest (€95).
We'll be looking to test some of the kit over summer, so keep your eyes peeled on the site for reviews... click here to check it all out on PEdAL ED's website.
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
