THE VELOCIS IS one of the best race-cut, nasty weather cy­cling gar­ments we’ve had the plea­sure of test­ing in years. Warmth is as­sured, even at zero de­grees (should you be mad enough to ride when it’s freez­ing) by virtue of a fleece-lined front and rear sec­tion, while ex­ter­nally taped seams at the front of the shoul­ders are a de­cent fail­safe against heavy rain. Three deep pock­ets at the rear are joined by a fur­ther pocket with a taped zip­per that’s big enough for keys and cash, while a chest pocket eas­ily houses a large smart­phone. Ex­tra long stretch cuffs with a thumb hole en­sure they stay put, while the col­lar keeps even a stub­bly neck free of ir­ri­ta­tion. The only thing stop­ping this jacket top­ping the Spe­cial­ized SL Pro is the lack of vent­ing, should you se­ri­ously over­heat dur­ing all-out train­ing ef­forts.
