Starlight Custom Apparel (USA) – Virginia's Starlight Custom Apparel has launched a new in-line brand called The Black Bibs. The line is built around a simple but extremely comfortable pair of bibs at just $40. The Black Bibs are available in male, female, and youth sizes. This month also saw the introduction of The Black Bibs Plus with an Italian power band at the leg opening. The team at Starlight used their 8 years of experience in custom apparel to develop the pattern. In the first 6 months almost 2000 pairs have been sent out to customers with positive feedback.
Starlight's Stratton Delany: "We saw a huge need for affordable bibs for new riders and those who simply can't or don't want to pay $100 or even $200+ for a good pair of bibs. The last thing we want is for people to be turned away from cycling because it's viewed as an activity that only the elite can afford."
Also new for the Summer is an extra-light short-sleeved jersey using Italian MITI Kite mesh for the sleeves and side panels. This is priced at $60 and available in gray, hi-vis, and black.
