We haven’t done one of these posts in quite a while, but I have missed bringing out these occasional posts highlighting things that we’ve been trying and testing—and loving—lately.
Goodr Ninja Kick the Damn Rabbit BFG Sunglasses
It’s embarrassing to admit, but I have a MASSIVE head. To the point where if I borrow a cap from Peter, I need to let it out several notches, especially now that I have a fair amount of hair as well! So, I was stoked to realize that Goodr actually offers a large head version of their classic sunglasses. Casual glasses tend to give me a massive headache after a while, just due to how they compress on my ears (the same thing happens with most headbands). Luckily, cycling glasses are less of an issue for some reason, but regular shades? Nope. The BFG sunglasses are SO much better for those of us with larger heads… and they have all the perks of regular Goodrs (nice rubberized nosepiece, polarized lenses, great price—currently on sale for $27!). Goodr just came on as a podcast sponsor for us, but I actually bought a few pairs from them last fall and had been testing them out + loving them long before (hence how the cycling glasses from them made our Gift Guide!). If you use our link, Goodr.com/consummate, you get free shipping so they’re even more reasonably priced.
Can’t Stop, Didn’t Stop tshirt
If you remember old memes about canti brakes in cyclocross and you’re still racing, you may need this shirt we designed. Get it here!
Quoc Lala Slides
The Quoc Lala Slides are for post ride/run, and they are ridiculously comfortable and highly water/mud-proof. Kind of like sandal-style crocs. This is a bit weird to say, but my favorite part is actually the texture of the part of the shoe that your foot is directly on—it’s bumpy, and almost feels like a mini-foot massage when you walk. I also deeply appreciate how wide they are—probably in part becuase they’re unisex—because IDK about you, but I end up with annoyingly puffy feet after a long run or ride. Grab them here. (Oh—I also truly love our ride/run checklist bag pictured above. It is such a good tote!)
Arc’teryx Lana Crew Neck Shirt
This lightweight nylon/merino shirt has become my #1 favorite run top lately. It’s just loose enough that it’s super comfy. It’s super thin, so it’s great under a coat or on its own as it gets hot out. And unlike some merino blends, it isn’t at all itchy! Highly recommend if you’re like me and tend to try to run in long sleeves well into the summer to avoid needing to wear a ton of sunscreen. (Also, note that in this photo, I’m wearing the Quoc sandals in the water!)
