LE COL WOMEN HORS CATEGORIE

-

£150 The latest offering from Le Col’s premium cycling range, the Hors Categorie Jersey, claims to provide an ‘unbeatable on-bike experience’ thanks to the fourway stretch polyamide fabric. Admittedly, it feels extremely soft and comfortabl­e against the skin, but it’s the thickestfe­eling fabric on test. As a result, it’d be our choice for cooler summer rides over the more porous Santini and Trimtex. The quality build extends to the fit, which is secure and snug thanks to an elasticate­d hemline gripper and laser-cut stretchpan­els along the arms. Comfort continues with the unobtrusiv­e zip-garage. Large elasticate­d back pockets provide plenty of space to stuff bars and gels, while a smaller zip pocket complete with water-resistant lining proved useful in protecting keys and small valuables, though it’s not large enough to stash a phone. For safety in low visibility, we found the reflective back strip a thoughtful feature. lecol.cc
