Fast Bikes - - TRIED OUT -

Get­ting cold is up there with be­ing punched in the face; it’s just not nice. Thank­fully, it’s an is­sue that can be marginalised if you’re wear­ing the right kit, and that’s where Spada’s merino wool base lay­ers step into the equa­tion. I got this duo of gar­ments (top and trousers sold sep­a­rately) at the be­gin­ning of au­tumn and they’ve been keep­ing me toasty ever since.

Aside from the warmth ben­e­fits, you can hardly tell you’re wear­ing them as the kit’s not scratchy or abra­sive against your skin. It’s also thin enough to go un­der any kit, in­clud­ing one piece suits, and I par­tic­u­lar like the top’s zip-up col­lar, which is a god­send in harsh rid­ing con­di­tions. They’re gen­er­ously sized and con­sid­er­ately shaped, so you can keep your love han­dles hid­den from sight. And for the lucky lady in your life, they also do a fe­male spe­cific cut. A great piece of clob­ber that I wouldn’t ride without at this time of year.
