Our 5 Favourite Summer Selections
If you’re lucky enough to be living in the Northern Hemisphere right now, you will no doubt have noticed that the skies are bluer, the days have become longer, and the urge to get out there and ride your bike has grown stronger than it’s been in months. You might be thinking that it’s time to update last year’s wardrobe, or you’re starting to notice that the heat is impacting on your performance and you need something more breathable.
At the Emporium we’re adding new products, brands and ranges daily. So we thought we’d share 5 of our favourite summer products for the best riding time of the year.
ENDLESS: ÁTLANTICO JERSEY

This jersey will keep you looking and feeling cool all summer long.
ALBION: WATERPROOF POUCH
When things are heating up this summer keep your valuables safe and protected from the extra sweat that comes along with it! The Albion Waterproof Pouch is handmade in England and uses 100% waterproof fabric with a YKK waterproof zip to shield your phone, credit cards and other essential items from the elements.
Get the pouch on the Emporium in a range of colours including; black, blue, olive or orange/blue.
PAS NORMAL STUDIOS: SOLITUDE MESH BIBS
No summer wardrobe would be complete without a pair of lightweight summer bibs. From Pas Normal Studios in Denmark are the Solitude Mesh Bibs, a specifically lightweight and breathable bib short designed for the hottest days in the saddle.
Created with a highly breathable side panel for an even lighter and ultra-ventilated bib, you’ll hardly notice the Italian made fabric against your skin as you crest that final mountaintop in the searing summer heat.

VERTEX LONDON: CLASSIC LEATHER GLOVES
