Since their launch in 2012, Search and State has quickly become a cult classic amongst cyclists yearning for a more understated look. Three years later, after continually refining and expanding their men’s collection while at the same time perfecting their women’s specific fit, SAS is ready to share the S1 collection with the female cycling community.
Split between Minneapolis and New York City, SAS founders Devin O’Brien and Daniel Golden wanted to create a brand around their passion for cycling, while bringing a fresh perspective to the sport. All SAS cycling apparel is manufactured in New York City’s Garment District where Daniel has worked as a designer with various fashion houses in the past.
Featuring the two original pieces that founded the company, the new women’s collection uses the same simple, clean aesthetic with minimal branding and high quality construction.
The S1-A Riding Jersey ($140) uses a breathable, two-toned, quick-drying microbial fabric made exclusively for the company. The jersey features an Italian Riri zipper along the front, with a classic three-pocket configuration in the back, and grippers along the waist.
The windproof and waterproof S1-J is a 3-season jacket ($255) made from Schoeller’s C-Change fabric. The C-Change membrane reacts to changes in temperature, opening up to let out heat and moisture, while narrowing in the cold to help retain heat while remaining breathable. A large rear zippered pocket provides enough room to store the essentials on your ride.
The SAS women’s collection is available now from the company website.
