It’s weekend wrap up time here at the Peloton Service Course, so incase you missed it, here’s what we took a look at this week – from the end of our adventures in Santa Barbara with our Küat Sherpa 2.0 rack to our review of the SIDI Ergo 4 Carbon composite shoe. Enjoy!
Our Adventure in Santa Barbara with Küat Wraps Up
East Camino Cielo runs along the ridge of the Santa Ynez Mountains like a spine connecting Santa Barbara to the backcountry, with its nervous system of asphalt, fire road and single track providing riders with endless opportunities to explore. Of course, the big question inevitably becomes: “Do we drop into the backcountry, guaranteeing ourselves a huge climb out, or rip down an asphalt descent like Painted Cave or Gibraltar, for an easy ride home?” We have a few miles to decide.

Mid-Week We Hit You with Gear From IslaBikes and Castelli

This will be that go-to jersey that just feels right for almost every ride. The fit is perfection, never flapping in the wind, but not wrapping you like saran wrap. The micro-pique fabric is beautifully soft against the skin, wicks moisture quickly to the surface to keep you comfortable and is very light weight.

The Ergo 4 Carbon Composite sits one rung below the vaunted Wire in SIDI’s vast collection, and it has learned much from the Wire, as well as the legendary Genius line. The upper is a combination of mesh and Microfibra Techpro—which is amazing stuff. It conforms to your foot, yet offers incredible stability, while retaining breathability and water resistance.
