Let it Snow

The USA Softshell Jacket features a water-resistant and windproof exterior, providing optimal protection against the elements. We proudly make this jacket in our Pittsburgh, Pa location.

Crafted to keep you warm and shielded from biting winds, these tights feature a windproof front panel and plush fleece lining that provide cozy insulation on chilly rides.

One of the best accessories for chilly rides is a balaclava. We made this one out of Merino Wool which is incredibly soft and comfortable.

These bib tights have it all! Pockets, fleece lined, zippered ankles, high viz, and a long distance chamois combine to make the ultimate pair of bib longs.

Cycling Tops for Chilly Rides

Big man vs regular size comparison

Over 10,000 customer 5 star reviews

"I wear a women's 3X, and I have been buying their products for more than 20 years. I purchase the padded ones and wear the regular ones in the warmer months and their wonderful fleece during the winter. I also bought lovely shorts and tops as well. I haven't ever received a garment with an unfinished seam or anything but top drawer workmanship. I highly recommend this company!!!"

Look for the "Made in U.S.A." in the Descriptions

Made in USA is an important part of our apparel as we have made a commitment to production in America. We support American factories and hire local staff. In addition, we purchase our materials from the highest quality vendors available to us. We support several American fabric knitting mills and employ our own factory in our own state of Pennsylvania.

New to Cycling Apparel?

If you want an overview of the specifics of cycling apparel and the utility they provide, follow the link to a brief overview of cycling apparel. We go over the most popular features in today's cycling apparel market. We will give you the essential details that make cycling apparel a worthwhile investment. Not all cycling apparel is spandex and skin tights. There are plenty of choices that are loose-fitting and normal-looking. Commuter clothing, for example, is very high-end performance gear yet appears to be regular daily clothing. You can also get the details on bike jerseys by reading about the wicking fabrics we use and the features that make them so popular with cyclists. We have been selling cycling apparel for over 30 years. Some aspects of the cycling apparel business never change. Namely, your desire to ride in comfort. We strive to create cycling apparel that is invisible.  Good cycling clothing fits well and stretches with movement. The fabrics resist abrasion and comfort the ischial bones on the bicycle saddle.

Looking for the Best Chamois Pads

While there are many variables to consider when selecting cycling apparel, one factor to consider is the chamois pad sewn into the saddle area. There are many opinions on what shape is best, what the thickness should be, and what material makes the chamois; foam or gel. Molded chamois pad construction is a one seamless piece design. Two-piece chamois designs use stitched-on side panels, which gives the pad a great fit. Both are good options, and the debate about which is best is up to the user. Given all the types of bicycle riders and all of the personal preferences within each of these cycling domains, it is no wonder we have to spend much time looking into our options to understand the choices available to us as cyclists. As the chamois pads evolve into a high-end science, the basic idea of a soft ride will never go out of style.

If you want to get into the details of the chamois pad, see this page on: How to Get Comfortable Cycling with Chamois Padded Bike Shorts. We also sell replacement foam chamois pads that you can use to upgrade or repair your older bike shorts.
