According to the nursery rhyme, Friday’s child is “loving and giving”. That may be true, but Friday’s adult-with-a-job is a jaded shell of a human being who’s just barely hanging on for the weekend. Luckily this is BikeRadar, where we offer a soupçon of solace for tired souls. Yes indeed fair reader, it’s time for 11 speed, your weekly round-up of lust-worthy bike tat!
New road bike gear
Svelte LS jersey and funky arm warmers
The range and diversity of cycling kit on the market has never been better, but somehow a lot of it still ends up looking rather samey. Luckily there are plenty of interesting micro-brands out there like Svelte, for roadies who want something a little bit different. The Heritage long sleeved jersey is a nicely understated top that looks perfect for spring or autumn, or as a mid-layer when it’s properly chilly. The fabric is 36 percent merino wool which should mean minimal stink, and it’s practical too, with both a zippered security pocket and an extra button-down one in addition to the usual three at the back.
For something a little funkier, the Green Geo arm warmers certainly stand out. They’ve got the usual brushed interior for snugness, and they’re available in a wide range of sizes for a good fit.
If they’re just not outlandish enough, Svelte does some that are even more eye-catching.
