MADISON ROADRACE WINDTECH GILET
WHAT THEY SAY: Engineered with Madison Genesis Race Team, the Roadrace Windmesh Gilet forms a critical part of our professionals’ wardrobe.
WHAT WE SAY: This made-forthe-pros garment impressed our tester, especially on speedy descents, keeping the cold out thanks to the lightweight, stretchy Windtech panelling across the shoulders, chest and side panels. The material also did a good job of keeping out the wet, although a mesh panel across the rear of the garment compromises its water-resistant capabilities a little. Its fit, as you’d expect, is aero, with a pre-curved shape making it supremely comfortable when you’re hunkered over your bars, while the elasticated armholes prevent drafts sneaking in. Three generous rear pockets and one small zippered one for valuables provide ample space for race-day gels and the like. Available in black, black/red or blue in sizes XS to XXL.
