Summer’s finally arrived so it’s time to expose your limbs for a good dose of vitamin D. And you can’t go far wrong with this green garment from Vulpine. Use of a four-way stretch Ripstop fabric ensures freedom of movement, while making them hard-wearing, and the traditional cycling-specific diamond gusset increases comfort around the seat bones through seam elimination. Two rear pockets plus three upfront offer plenty of stowage capabilities, although those of you blessed with Hoy-like thighs be warned: they’re not the loosest of fits. Throw in crammed pockets and comfort will soon disappear. They’re also relatively pricey for what they are, albeit at time of press they were listed at a healthier £52.50.
