Morocco Roll: PEdALED Heiko Collection

Hideto Suzuki founded PEdALED in 2007 and has since built a world-class range of apparel designed with an essential Japanese Zen-like aesthetic. They headed to Morocco to document their new Heiko Collection and found a world of complementary color.

The PEdALED range is one of simplicity and functionality, exuding a calm sensibility, and extends from city shorts to boots to unostentatious bike packing luggage. There’s also a catalog of sleek and stylish accessories like belts and neck warmers.

The Heiko Collection is more of a road-oriented capsule that consists of bib shorts, base layers, arm warmers and vests, accompaniments to a long day’s ride, requiring less glamour and more reliability on a solid product.

From the press release: In Japanese culture Heiko is a physical stance in which you search for the maximum balance in a transitional state between will and movement, standing with your feet pointing forward.

Heiko — literally ‘Parallelism’ — is a concept that we are developing and have pursued since our first days, by which we aim to create the most natural parallelism and balance between the upper and the lower body, and between a rider and their world. That same balance between the world’s natural elements and cyclists inspired the new kit.

Fire, Snow, Sea, Rock, and Sand, become Red, White, Blue, Grey, and Orange to create five different full kits to bring cycling to a new level of experience and comfort through its pure and simple design and unique colors and fabrics.

For the new collection, we went to Morocco to explore all the different worlds that live in it, from the Ocean of Essaouira to the Saharan desert’s sand, riding through the red city of Marrakech and the High Atlas snowy mountain passes.
