Pick of the kit
Vaivai Espresso kit, vaivai.cc
I can’t quite make my mind up on the colour – I think I need a better tan – but I am sold on the fit and feel of the Espresso jersey (£93.56). It’s silky and light and is relaxed without feeling flappy. The pockets don’t sag, the side mesh breathes nicely and I’m a fan of the longer arms.
The Scudetto bibshorts (£141.68) are very good too, light in fit and feel, although to really nitpick I’d do away with such pronounced seams down the part of the leg (the quad) most prone to flexing. Oh, and the VV socks (£9.62) – big fan, love that length.
