*We are currently in the process of replacing our current cycling wardrobe. For one reason, our clothes have over 15 months of everyday use and are developing non-fixable holes. Another reason is that our wardrobe is largely comprised of merino wool products. While we love the performance of the fabric, we can no longer support the industry as we adopted a vegan lifestyle mid-trip.
