THE RUNDOWN ON OUR STYLISH CYCLING KIT

We’ve been riding around in the sweet new kits for the past two weeks or so, and we’re simply stoked on the comfort. Plus, we think they look great with the pop of color and blended black/white. Pair it with some white shoes and a white helmet (the Kask Mojito is pictured), and you’re looking great.

Cycling wardrobe complete.

The fabric of the jerseys is Voler’s Genesis: super moisture-wicking and UV rating of 28. A 3-pocket back, grippers at the waist, and a non-grippy sleeve make this jersey great for long rides. No worries about pulling or pinching.

As for the bib shorts, say goodbye to muffin top and hello to one of Voler’s most comfortable chamois: The Orion. With a 6-hour ride time, this pad is ultra-engineered from EIT Carbonium Microfibre fabric, which means that it actually has a carbon fiber inlay. Yah, that’s kind of totally impressive.

But whatever it has inside, it is actually reverse-molded so that it avoids abrasion-causing peaks and valleys via multiple densities to offer padding where it’s most needed. I know, it sounds like marketing hype. But this is one of the most comfortable chamois I’ve ever worn.

A Few Notes On Fit

The fit is quite true to size–if you’re a medium in other Voler garments, you’re likely a medium here. Unless, of course, you’re used to the looser feel of the “club” cuts. This “race” cut jersey will feel much less roomy as it will hug you a little closer. So, you might want to go up one size if you’re not feeling the slightly tighter fit.

As for the bib shorts, they’re quite true to size, and the stretchy soft Sola fabric offers plenty of form-fitting compression without it being super squeezy. Ultra breathable with a UV rating of 28+ as well.

Silicone grippers at the leg are comfortable since they are tailored around the “Voler” logo, so it’s not a complete band style that can get tight and uncomfortable. Yet, they’ll still stay put without slipping up or down (unless you’ve got skinny legs like one of our editors who shall not be named, and who didn’t want us to say anything about his skinny legs).

 

THE FINAL WORD

To get back to your dignity, this kit holds up extremely well. Even when one of our editors crashed off-road testing Ribble’s CX5 bike. This was the aftermath:

Hard fall, but the SLO Cyclist kit held up.

That’s tough stuff. And it still looks good under a layer of dirt.

Like I said, DIGNITY.
