  1. Cyclocross Gear Guide: How We Outfitted Garneau-Easton

      Garneau-Easton p/b Transitions LifeCare is one of North America's top professional and developmental cyclocross team.  The six-member pro roster consists of Michael van den Ham, Craig Richey, Dylan Postier, Gunnar Holmgren, Erica Zaveta, and Natasha Elliot.  For the third year, the team will be racing on DreamFactory custom painted Garneau Steeple carbon frames. Riders will also be kitted head to toes in Garneau bike helmet, shoes, and custom skin suit kits.  HOW WE OUTFITTED THE TEAM   CUSTOM KITS: THE course skin We all know the go-to choice for cross is a skinsuit, but all the talk around skinsuits usually focuses on aerodynamics.  While the Course Skin can hold its own for those riders wanting  time-trial-esque speed, it is also leads in technology for cyclocross junkies.   The Custom Course Skin is perfect for cyclocross for the following reasons:1. Increased mobility around the stomach area for all the running and twisting in cyclocross. The Custom Course Skin has a fully detachable zipper in the front so you can unzip the top like a bike jersey, but it is still connected to the shorts at the sides and back like a skinsuit. Connecting the top to the bottoms is a four-way stretchable mesh that dries super quick. 2. The mesh super lightweight side panels are perfect for the hot early season races.  It seems like CX seasons starts earlier and earlier every year.  With races on the calendar in August and September, cross skins are no longer limited to thermal skins.  Sometimes you need light and breathable pieces for those early-season races.  The Custom Course Skin fits this bill.  3. Incredibly comfortable leg and arm grippers which again, only make running, remounting, and twisting easier. The sleeves and legs are laser-cut and seamless. This makes for  a single-layer smooth transition that is compressive enough to avoid riding up.  Lack of seams also eliminates the chance of irritation.4. The 3 rear pockets are handy in warm races when you need somewhere to stash a waterbottle.  With no cages, you can rely on hand ups, you can go 45 minutes without water, or you can stuff a bottle in your back pocket.  The back pockets are "floating" so heavy contents won't result in pull at the neck.   hbspt.cta.load(1653222, '11dc8405-c4ba-48d7-8c16-361483aaaafb', {});
