In January, while everyone else in Adelaide was in hot pursuit of the pros, we dispatched four of our local wear testers into the surrounding hills for two days of riding on remote roads, in record-breaking temperatures of over 40°C. Photographer Jake Stangel was with them – here’s what he had to say about the shoot.
Masters and Convicts of the Groad
Dirty Kanza is a gravel race starting in Emporia, Kansas. The first stop for EF Education First on the alternative racing calendar, it might seem easy – until you get there. Tire-slashing rocks, heat stroke and hours between aid stations add up to a ride that recalls Grand Tour glory days.
Explore Cargo Winter Tights
The Explore Winter Tights take the radical pocket design from our popular Cargo Bib Shorts and add large reflective panels on the lower leg and a warm fleece-backed fabric to keep you warm, well-stocked and visible on winter adventures.
